Why Are There Still So Many Unanswered Questions About The 9-11 Tragedy

If you search the internet you’ll find plenty of conspiracy theories everywhere.

For instance the claims that there is no plane visible in the Pentagon Attack… Multiple witnesses said the plane literally flew into it parallel so there wouldn’t be any plane visible

Add that to the fact that most of the pictures used by these conspiracy theorists are in fact from 2 days after the attack and the NTSB had already removed a good deal of the debris from the wreckage outside the building.

I realize that facts don’t matter to those who want to create controversy but there is plenty of controversy that needs to be addressed that has solid evidence

We know for a fact that the intelligence community knew about the attack well before it happened yet they did nothing.

Wikipedia has some very interesting facts about the events leading up to 911

Intelligence warnings

The 9/11 Commission Report states that “the 9/11 attacks were a shock, but they should not have come as a surprise. Islamic extremists had given plenty of warnings that they meant to kill Americans indiscriminately and in large numbers.”[28] The report continued:

During the spring and summer of 2001, U.S. intelligence agencies received a stream of warnings about an attack al-Qaeda planned, as one report puts it “something very, very, very big.” Director of Central Intelligence George Tenet told us “the system was blinking red.”[29]

The US administration, CIA and FBI received multiple prior warnings from foreign governments and intelligence services, including France, Germany, the UK, Israel, Jordan, Afghanistan, Egypt, Morocco and Russia.[5][30] The warnings varied in their level of detail, but all stated that they believed an al-Qaeda attack inside the United States was imminent. British Member of Parliament Michael Meacher cites these warnings, suggesting that some of them must have been deliberately ignored.[31] Some of these warnings include the following:

  • March 2001 – Italian intelligence warns of an al-Qaeda plot in the United States involving a massive strike involving aircraft, based on their wiretap of al-Qaeda cell in Milan.
  • July 2001 – Jordanian intelligence told US officials that al-Qaeda was planning an attack on American soil, and Egyptian intelligence warned the CIA that 20 al-Qaeda Jihadists were in the United States, and that four of them were receiving flight training.
  • August 2001 – The Israeli Mossad gives the CIA a list of 19 terrorists living in the US and says that they appear to be planning to carry out an attack in the near future.
  • August 2001 – The United Kingdom is warned three times of an imminent al-Qaeda attack in the United States, the third specifying multiple airplane hijackings. According to the Sunday Herald, the report is passed on to President Bush a short time later.
  • September 2001 – Egyptian intelligence warns American officials that al-Qaeda is in the advanced stages of executing a significant operation against an American target, probably within the US.

I have always had questions about the Twin Towers and the way that they came down because I was raised by a man with 5 different engineering degrees, who’s actual job was to go into disaster areas for the government and surmise whether structures were safe or not and if in fact the buildings or structures were destroyed in the way it was reported.

Unfortunately my father passed in 1997 and so I have no one to ask. I did however work for the company that provided a good deal of the steel and concrete structure of the Ronald Regan Federal Building in California, and I know for a fact that the buildings couldn’t have come down the way they did if it was merely 2 planes flying into a building.

Ok, when these towers or any highrise is built, the bottom of the building is always the weightiest, and as the building rises it is made with more and more light weight materials. You couldn’t make a building the same weight all the way through or it could inevitably collapse into itself.

The other thing that has always bothered me is that the entire building seemed to be reduced to dust, when we made the concrete blocks and pillars there was so much rebar in it that if we screwed up something or there was air that somehow got into it we had to destroy the entire block which could effectively shut down the whole company for the day and the onsite Federal Inspectors were down our throats for weeks after that.

In order to destroy that bock we had special machines to do that and they were never reduced to dust, we only wished they were. The machines hit down with as much pressure as the buildings other floors would’ve.

At any rate there are other engineers agree with me though… but enough about my opinions as a layperson…

Everyone is so excited about Mueller being in charge of the Russia Investigations but I personally am terrified after the dismal almost non existent “investigation” into 911.

I recently made an acquaintance with a man I respect very much and this topic came up. To my amazement he had some of the same reservations as I did but he is much more articulate about it and had even more concerns.

The following is over a decade of research, it is a long read but very much worth your time and effort

Irrefutable Evidence – The 9/11 Official Story is Total BS

by Richard L. McManus

  1. Devout Muslims would not get drunk and use hookers, yet we are to believe several of the alleged 9/11 hijacker did just that.  We have numerous witnesses.  Now that I have your interest, I have the evidence they done just that. No fool-kin way would that kind-a guy fly into a building on 9/11!   But hell! There’s more.  Them bad Arabs could not even fly a small private air-o-plane even sober.

 

Vice President Dick Cheney called US Senator Majority Leader Tom Dashcle on Jan. 24, 2002 and urged him not to do an investigation of 9/11 and that Bush had followed up on January 28, 2002 with a similar request during a breakfast meeting at the White House.

 

Cheney denied he had warned Sen. Tom Daschle off an investigation.  Cheney said, “Tom’s wrong. He has, in this case, let’s say a misinterpretation. What I did do was … say, we prefer to work with the intelligence committees.”

 

On Meet the Press on Sept. 19, 2002, Moderator Tim Russert asked Sen. Daschle (Was it) “No investigation by anyone, period?” “That’s correct,” Daschle said.

 

In May 2002 it was reported that both Cheney and Bush Jr. have argued publicly against an

inquiry, opting instead for an inquiry by the intelligence committees of Congress.

http://www.rense.com/general25/ggg.htm

http://www.commondreams.org/views04/0211-13.htm

 

For nearly six months, the White House successfully blocked congressional hearings and rebuffed calls for a special commission of inquiry. The Bush administration deliberately diverted attention from these revelations, issuing a series of unsubstantiated and hysterically worded terror alerts.  Then it worked out a deal with the Democratic and Republican congressional leaders to consign the investigation to hearings held jointly by the House and Senate intelligence committees. These hearings have been held behind closed doors, with the promised public hearings repeatedly postponed.

 

Once the intelligence committees began their closed-door hearings, the Bush administration counterattacked, seizing on press reports that the National Security Agency had intercepted Al Qaeda communications the day before the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Vice President Cheney charged that someone in Congress person on this committee was virtually guilty of treason for leaking this information.  US Senator Richard Shelby, the senior Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, conceded in an interview on the anniversary of September 11 that there was enormous pressure from the Bush administration to shelve the hearings entirely.  Then they underfunded the investigation and set up an unreasonable time table.

 

The Times backed the Bush administration’s refusal to permit any investigation into the biggest single act of mass murder in US history, nor any calls for the appointment of an independent commission or a special prosecutor.  I don’t know if by the Times is meant the Washington Times, the New York Times, The Times of London, or a hundred other newspapers.

 

On September 8th the Times published a lengthy commentary on the factors that contributed to the failure to prevent the attacks. The entire article amounted to a diversion from the real issue of government foreknowledge and the government’s failure to act on what it knew. The newspaper accused “the complacency that Americans shared about the security of their continent,” due to the “innate resistance” to intrusive domestic spying, pressure to preserve civil liberties”; “a retreat from traditional espionage”; and even a slow start for the Bush administration because of “the bitter battle over the disputed 2000 election.” The American media generally refused to discuss the open hostility of the government to any investigation or public accounting: the Bush administration has something to hide. This attitude is expressed quite clearly in the most important American media outlet, the New York Times. The leading US newspaper has denounced criticism of the Bush administration for blocking an investigation into the terrorist attacks, calling such comments “gotcha politics.”  Even though Richard Clarke charged the Bush government did not consider terrorism to be an urgent threat before 11 September 2001. He said, in the first eight months of office, the government considered terrorism “an important issue, but not an urgent issue”.

 

  1. Richard Clark, Bush’s counter-terrorism guy on the National Security Council, was kept in the dark about the fact that the FBI knew two of the alleged hijackers had arrived in California in about January 2000 and were living in the US for several months. Clark routinely received all CIA updated intelligence information, but he did not get it. Clark stated this information was DELIBERATELY withheld from him and yet it was sent to some 50 other CIA officer.  Clark conversed with CIA Director George Tenet a couple times every day and attended a meeting on the terrorist threat at the White House on July 10, 2001, but Tenet did not say one thing about this threat posed from two confirmed Al Qaeda members being in our country.

 

It was revealed by Newsweek in 2002 that two of the alleged hijackers were identified by the CIA in January 2000, after they attended an al-Qaeda meeting in Malaysia.  Khalid al-Mihdhar entered the US at LA airport.  The two men then went to San Diego where they “moved into the home of a Muslim man who had befriended them at the local Islamic Center. However, their landlord also happened to be an undercover asset for the FBI, yet nothing was done.

  1. World Trade Center building seven (WTC 7) was not hit by an airplane and fell down absolute free fall acceleration for the first 2.25 seconds of its descent over a distance of 32 meters or eight stories. And the total time it took for it to collapse was very slightly slower than free fall acceleration. This means the total time it took the building to collapse was almost the same as the time it would take a baseball to hit the ground after being dropped off the roof of WTC 7.  Objects speed up due to gravity when they fall thru the air and this is called “free fall acceleration”. But crushing of one floor after another should have greatly slowed down the total time of the collapse. The other tell-tale sign of a deliberate exploding of WTC 7 is the symmetrically collapsed straight down.  WTC 7 collapsed just like an expert would do a demolition.  In fact, the building ended up falling into its foot-print, not doing much or any damage to adjacent buildings, just like happens in a controlled demolition.  Most of the building’s concrete flooring slabs were pulverized into tiny particles and dust.

 

  1.  For over a year, Dr. Leroy Hulsey, a forensic structural engineer and chair of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) along with his two PhD students analyzed data from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)’s report about the collapse on 9/11 of World Trade Center Building Seven (WTC 7). They found errors within NIST’s analysis and also they came to the conclusion that WTC 7 did not collapsed due to fire as NIST reported.

 

NIST said a steel column expanded (got longer) due being heated by fire caused by the burning of flammable office type furnishings. A steel column or beam gets slightly longer when baked in a fire.  NIST said a steel column number 79 got longer by 5.5 inches.  However analysis by Dr. Hulsey and his two PhD students proved this column expanded less than two inches, therefore, it could not have fallen off the steel plate it was resting on and bolted to.

 

In NIST’s June 2004 Progress Report referenced to shear studs, which are bolts used to keep steel floor beams and girders in place and to impart stability and strength to buildings. But in its November 2008, final report four years later, NIST reworded its comments on shear studs to give the appearance that none were used on the floor girders. These shear studs are bolts 0.75 inches in diameter by 5 inches and  would prevent movement due to thermal expansion.  http://www.ae911truth.org/news/319-news-media-events-fraud-exposed-in-nist-wtc-7-reports-part-3.html

 

NIST made an animation (motion picture) which was produce by their computer data, however even in the short few seconds of their models collapse, we can see the building not falling symmetrically, was we can compare with video tapes of the collapse.  To be a true representation of their model, NIST should have had a motion picture model of the total collapse. Secondly as the NIST’s model starts to show the building tipping over to the side the motion picture model ends. And had NIST done that, their model would have tipped over onto its side.  But WTC 7 fell into the building’s footprint. This is proof NIST was hiding the fact that their computer model did not fit reality because it violated the law of inertia.  Had the NIST motion picture animation lasted until the end of the total collapse, their animated building would have tipped over to one side and not land in the building’s footprint.

 

As proof NIST was hiding something, they refused a FOIA request to publically disclose the data they used in their computer model, stating to publically do so would risk national security.   That reason is total BS.

 

Dr. Hulsey and his PhD students determined that the steel in column 79 only increased in length less than two inches, and with errors they found in NIST’s analysis, their conclusion was that WTC 7 did not collapse due to fire.

 

Given that it is the responsibility of NIST to make sure steel high rise buildings are safe and do not collapse in the future due to such minor fires, the NIST investigation was grossly negligent.  Furthermore by asserting their false conclusion, NIST may be guilty of criminal negligence. As of December 2016, Dr. Hulsey’s and his students are still continuing to rule-out other far-out possibilities, albeit they are 100 percent sure of their scientific analysis.

NIST said it was the heat expansion of a steel gutter.  Here is a youtube video that blows big holes in that theory. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsxsxxmYP6A

 

NIST has refused to release via a Freedom of Information (FOIA) request the data used in the computer model.

 

NIST did not require any new structural safety standards for future construction of steel high rise buildings.

 

  1.  Frank Delessio collected dust sample at ground zero and Tom Breidenbach, one of Frank’s friends, who helped him preserved the dust. They collected the dust before noon on 9/11/2001 before rescue and cleanup efforts could have contaminated them. Four random samples were collected by citizens as souvenirs.  One person had a friend who was a scientist. Physics professor Steven E. Jones discovered the curious thermitic material in 2007, when he ran a magnet over a dust sample given to him by a Manhattan resident survivor of the attack, and found that some particles were attracted to the magnet. These and other sample were found to contain microscopic iron spheres and nanothermate, also called super thermate. Nanothermate (aka super thermate) is a compound, just like that of a match head, when heated by friction, it ignites and produces fire. However, thermate or nanothermate required more heat than just that made by friction to get it to burn.

 

A study, published a paper in The Open Chemical Physics Journal, describes this finding of “red/gray bi-layered chips” in samples of dust using a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and x-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (XEDS) to analyze the material. (Source:  Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice http://stj911.org/

 

In an article “Active Nano-technologized Thermitic Material…” that was published in a mainstream peer-reviewed Chemical Physics journal, it is stated: Based on these observations, we conclude that the red layer of the red/gray chips we have discovered in the WTC dust is unreacted thermitic material, incorporating nanotechnology, and it is a highly energetic pyrotechnic (aka an explosive material).

http://www.bentham-open.org/pages/content.php?TOCPJ/2009/00000002/00000001/7TOCPJ.SGM

 

Some 2,807 architects and engineers believe that WTC 7 collapsed due to explosions and at least one of these explosive was nanothermate. They are demanding a new Congressional investigation regarding the mass murder on 9/11.  One of the most scientifically irrefutable bits of evidence that an explosive cause the collapses, is that microscopic pieces of unexploded nanothermate were found in at least four sample of the dust from ground zero.

 

The 9/11 first responders suffered from unusual illnesses and aluminum silicates was found in the lung tissue of WTC first responders at high levels in “unusual platy configurations.”  “Platy” means consisting of plates or flaky layers —used chiefly of mineral formations, aka carbon nanotubes.

 

Within every dust samples from the World Trade Center was found sol-gel, nano-thermite formulations containing aluminum, iron oxide, and silicon, in plate-like (platy) configurations.  

 

The strange white smoke coming up off the piles of steel wreck at ground zero at least six months after the collapse was aluminum oxide smoke.   When nano-thermate burns it produce aluminum oxide.

 

Other common WTC lung ailments include sarcoidosis, which is known to be caused by aluminum dust, and pulmonary fibrosis, which can be caused by aluminum oxide. This suggests a correlation with the causes of the destruction of WTC buildings 1, 2 and 7.  Aluminum oxide – a potential cause of the observed pulmonary fibrosis – is a product of the thermite reaction, and there is now considerable evidence for the use of thermite in the destruction of WTC buildings 1, 2 and 7.  Additionally, aluminum and silicates – potential causes of the observed illnesses of the immune system – are components of nanothermite formulations.

 

Thermite is a mixture of aluminum powder and a metal oxide that, when ignited, exhibits an extremely exothermic reaction producing aluminum oxide and the metal in molten form.

 

Furthermore, the rare cancers found in some first responders could be the result of environmental factors such as the unusually high levels of benzene and derivatives of 1,3-DPP which suggest the presence of energetic materials like thermite and nanothermite.

 

Analysis of the lung tissue of first responders has also indicated that energetic materials might be involved.  The unusual platy configurations of aluminum silicates found in those lung tissue samples seem similar to the platy configurations of aluminum and silicon in the nanothermite that has been discovered in WTC dust samples.

 

The finding of carbon nanotubes in the lungs of first responders suggests two possible explanations.  The nanotubes might have been formed in the unusual environment at Ground Zero, where extremely high temperatures and the presence of airborne metallic species gives yet more evidence for the presence of thermitic materials.  Alternatively, the nanotubes might have been components of energetic materials.  In either case, the presence of carbon nanotubes in the lungs of WTC first responders suggests the use of energetic materials and should be studied in more depth.

 

These facts and research findings warrant further study of the correlation between environmental testing results, first responder health study results, and the use of energetic materials at the WTC.

 

In 2010, researchers reported the presence of carbon nanotubes in the lungs of WTC first responders.  Carbon nanotubes are high-tech nano structured materials, which exhibit unique properties like ballistic conduction.  The health effects of carbon nanotubes have been shown to be similar to the health effects produced by exposure to asbestos.

 

Carbon nanotube formation requires three basic components: a source of carbon, a source of heat, and the presence of certain metals.  In particular, formation of the single walled carbon nanotubes found in the lungs of first responders requires that the metals be present. All of these requirements were met at the WTC site on, and for months after, September 11, 2001.

 

The three most effective metals for the synthesis of single walled carbon nanotubes are iron, nickel and cobalt.  Both iron and nickel were present in high concentrations near Ground Zero, as shown by aerosol testing done by a team from the University of California, Davis. Iron oxide and nickel oxide are common oxidants in thermite mixtures.

 

Airborne carbon compounds were certainly present in abundance at Ground Zero in the form of particulate matter resulting from the fire.  Heat was also in abundance, as extremely high temperatures were present on 9/11 and afterward at Ground Zero.  These temperatures were at least 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, hotter than first reported by government scientists, and were far higher than temperatures seen in a normal structure fire.

 

The molten metal and vaporized silicates that have been reported in the WTC dust can only be explained by the presence of an exothermic reaction like the thermite reaction.  Large quantities of carbon nanotubes might have been formed at Ground Zero due to the high temperature environments created by the thermite reaction and the airborne metal catalysts that were also present.

 

A second possible explanation for the carbon nanotubes in the lung tissue of the first responders is that the carbon nanotubes were components of actual energetic materials that were used in the destruction of the buildings.  Carbon nanotubes have been used as energetic modifiers, to improve stabilization of explosives,  and to enhance ignition properties.

  1.  Chief Daniel A. Nigro said, “the biggest decision we had to make on the first day was to clear the area and create a collapse zone around the severely damaged 7 World Trade Center, a 47-story building heavily involved in fire. A number of fire officers and companies assessed the damage to the building. The appraisals indicated that the building’s integrity was in serious doubt. I issued the orders to pull back the firefighters and define the collapse zone. It was a critical decision; we could not lose any more firefighters. It took a lot of time to pull everyone out, given the emotionalism of the day, communications difficulties, and the collapse terrain.” He took command of the scene after his boss was killed in one of the collapsed Twin Towers.

 

Of primary importance early on in the operation was the structural condition of 7 World Trade Center. Assistant Chief Frank Fellini had been approached by several chiefs who were concerned about its stability. It had been heavily damaged in the collapse and was well-involved in fire. Chief Fellini had looked at it and described some damage to its south side. He felt that structural components of the building had been compromised. When Chief Dan Nigro arrived at the command post, he convened a meeting of staff fire chiefs to discuss the damage to WTC7. They were all in accord about the danger and allegedly they all agreed that it was not too conservative of a decision to establish a collapse zone for that building, not fight the fire, and move the firefighters out of the collapse area.  It was about 4:00 PM and they were anticipating Seven World Trade Center collapsing and firemen were leaving en masse.  

 

It was 4:45 p.m., and all the firemen and rescue workers were evacuating Ground Zero after word came that a third building — WTC 7 — was ready to fall.

 

That meant firefighters in the area of the North Tower had to be evacuated. This took some time to accomplish because of terrain, communications, and the fierce determination with which the firefighters were searching. At 5:30 p.m., about 20 minutes after the last firefighters evacuated the collapse zone, 7 WTC collapsed. It was the third steel-frame high-rise in history to collapse from fire — the other two had collapsed earlier that day.  http://www.wtc7.net/warnings.html

 

“Around 3:30 pm FDNY Chief Daniel Nigro decided to halt rescue operations, surface removal, and searches along the surface of the debris near 7 World Trade Center and evacuate the area due to concerns for the safety of personnel.”
http://www.nytimes.com/packages/html/nyregion/20050812_WTC_GRAPHIC/Nigro_Daniel.txt

 

An engineer at the World Trade Center site correctly predicts that WTC Building 7 is going to collapse. Deputy Chief Peter Hayden of the New York Fire Department will later recall: “We had our special operations people set up surveying instruments to monitor, and see if there was any movement of, (WTC 7). We were concerned of the possibility of collapse of the building. And we had a discussion with one particular engineer there, and we asked him, if we allowed it to burn could we anticipate a collapse, and if so, how soon? And it turned out that he was pretty much right on the money, that he said, ‘In its current state, you have about five hours.’” Hayden will not reveal the name of this engineer. [BBC, 7/6/2008] WTC 7 will collapse at about 5:20 p.m. indicating that the engineer makes his prediction around midday or shortly after. [CNN, 9/12/2001]

 

An EMT New York City firefighter stated that hundreds of emergency rescue personnel were told over bullhorns that Building 7, a 47 story skyscraper was about to be pulled” and she/he heard a 20 second radio countdown preceding the actual collapse.  NIST stated there was no warning the seconds prior start of the collapse.   http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/february2007/080207building7.htm

 

Larry Silverstein the owner of WTC 7 during a PBS documentary interview stated:  “I remember getting a call from the fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, ‘We’ve had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.’ And they made that decision to pull and then we watched the building collapse.”   “Pulled” it is jargon that demolition companies and workers use. Demolition experts who have viewed the video tapes of the WTC buildings collapsing stated the cause was “controlled demotion” PERIOD!  There is no other possible explanations.

 

Fire Chief did not fight the fire in WTC 7, because they stated the water pressure to too low.  That statement is BS because so long as low water pressure water gets to a fire truck, it can increase the water pressure. The NY Fire Department could still have put out the fires using their smallest diameter fire hoes because the fires were small. Someone needs to research and find out how low was the water pressure on 9/11, and HELL…fire trucks could have pumped water out of the Hudson River that was nearby!

 

New York Fire Chief Daniel A. Nigro said, “I am well aware of Mr. Silverstein’s statement, but to the best of my recollection, I did not speak to him on that day and I do not recall anyone telling me that they did either. That doesn’t mean he could not have spoken to someone from FDNY, it just means that I am not aware of it.”

 

Now never during the 9/11 Commission investigation or report is there any documentation that I have been able to find, about who this alleged Fire Chief is, nor is there any record of the Fire Chief’s testimony where he/she confirms saying this under oath. All we have is Silverstein’s word of such a conversation he had with the Fire Chief and the expert opinion that WTC 7 was at risk of collapsing soon after this conversation.

 

Furthermore, there is a video tape of a witness alleging he heard a count-down given over a New York City fire or police radio, seconds before WTC 7 started to collapse.  Furthermore, New York Fire and Police chased citizens away from the WTC 7 minutes prior to it falling down, and construction workers saying, “It’s coming down, get back.” And immediately thereafter, explosions were heard and recorded on video tape.

 

The World Trade Center complex owned by Larry Silverstein required at least $200 million to remove the asbestos fireproofing. He had tried to get the New York City government to allow the demolition of them, but the city refused because of the health risk from asbestos and the risk to people and the neighborhood surrounding the building.  Also the Twin Towers needed $5.6 billion in repairs to prevent galvanic alloy corroded bolts from shedding aluminum cladding onto pedestrians below and killing pedestrians walking nearby.

 

Silverstein was paid $4.577 billion from insurance companies for buildings 1, 2, 4, and 5.  Silverstein made $1.33 billion profit from his insurance on this ownership of WTC buildings as a result of the incident.   for these buildings.  Given that when Silverstein bought the WTC every other real estate agent in New York City knew those buildings were not a financially good business decision, was this just good luck?

The whole 9/11 official story is full of ship that just happening and defies our common sense (what are the odds?).  For example, three of the transcontinental flights departed for the West Coast with at least two thirds of the seats empty.   Flight 77 …never at any time in the last decade have we flown a trans-continental flight that was 3/4 empty as what allegedly occurred on 9/11.

 

Or the fact by order of a White House directive, a FEMA bio-warfare training exercise called Tripod II, was scheduled and in progress on September 11th in Manhattan.  The set up for that exercise conveniently placed a fully staffed FEMA and Department of Justice command post on Manhattan’s Pier 29.

 

Or the fact that the New York City’s, Emergency Management Operation Center at the time was located in World Trade Center seven (WTC7), but on 9/11, they also moved it to Pear 29 with FEMA.

http://www.ae911truth.org/news-section/41-articles/696-faq-10-did-wtc-7-owner-larry-silverstein-admit-to-ordering-the-controlled-demolition-of-the-building-.html

 

Or the fact that US Air Force left what a yawning gap its air defenses on the East Coast without enough F-16s to handle four hijackings—a gap with New York City at the center.

 

Or that fact that militarized anthrax, only produced in DoD bioweapon labs or Bechtel labs would be sent to two of the Congressmen who were against the Patriot Act and could have stopped its passage.

 

Or the fact that devote extremist Muslims, who drank alcohol and used prostitutes, but could not fly a small private airplane, did the mass murder on 9/11.

 

Or the fact that never before 9/11 had a steel high rise building ever totally collapsed due to fire or since then due to fire, yet three did so.

 

Or the fact that steel melted for the first time in world history, without first baking in a furnace.

 

Or the fact that someone made $2.5 million profit  with insider information investing in put options in United Airlines stock as the stock price crashed after 9/11, yet they did not bother to claim the money (as far as we know and the SEC says the records were destroyed).

 

How lucky for was that?  About as lucky as the conspiracy theory of the virgin birth of Jesus, I would say.

 

  1. NIST’s computer model alleged that fire burned for 7 hours on floors 11 thru 13, but what NIST does not tell us is that the fire really only stayed in one place for 20 minutes as if move on to find more combustible office furnishings.   So as the fire moved on, each steel column cooled off and regained its strength.   Also NIST said the fires on floors 11 thru 13 lasted 7 hours, but the truth is it only burnt for 3.5 hours as it slowly moved looking for more stuff to burn. They wanted us to believe the steel columns were being baked, losing strength.  However, this is false because all the steel in WTC 7 was covered with fireproofing and it was not get blown off the steel beams or columns by an airplane.   There was also molten iron/steel found in the wreckage of World Trade Center building seven (WTC 7).

  1.  An explosion in WTC7 four hours before it collapsed

 

After a plane hit the North Tower at 8:46 AM, Barry Jennings said he arrived to go to work in the New York City Emergency Operations Center located on the 23rd floor of World Trade Center building seven (WTC 7) and Jennings said he arrived at about the time the second airplane hit the South Tower. (~9:03 AM).  He met a Michael Hess there who was also headed for the emergency center.

 

The Nation Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) reported (the official account) stated Jennings did not arrive until 9:59 AM, just before the South Tower fell. Hess made no public statement about the time they arrived.

 

Ok, maybe Jennings lost track of time.

Both Jennings and Hess discovered that none of the other people who should have also been tasked to arrive at the emergency center to handle the airplane flying into the WTC, were there.  So they left and took the east stairway to get out of the building. They both stated that when they got down to the sixth floor a massive explosion caused the stairway to give way (was damaged so they could not walk down it anymore).   They managed to get back up to the eighth floor, but they were trapped inside the building.

There were two stairwells located in the middle of WTC 7. One was somewhat east but still in the center part of the building and likewise one west near the center.  However, neither one was near the area of the south-face of the building damaged when debris, hit the south face of WTC 7. Yet, NIST reported the reason the stairway collapsed was due to debris that fell off one of the Twin Towers.

 

Jennings stated that he and Hess broke out a window and yelled for help.  He said firefighters noticed them, but they then ran away.  At about 9:59 AM, they ran because the first tower (South Tower) was collapsing.  After a while, about ten fire fighters showed up to rescue them, but they also ran away.  This was because the North Tower collapsed at 10:28 AM.

 

Hess was interview after he was rescued by the fire fighters stating, “I was up in the emergency management center on the 23rd floor, and when all the power went out in the building, ah, another gentleman and I walked down to the 8th floor [sic] where there was an explosion. And we’ve been trapped on the 8th floor with smoke, thick smoke all around us for about an hour and a half.”  Hess videotaped yelling for help thru a window they broke out and his words, “an explosion,” were record during of this conversation with the firefighter on the ground.  Here is a link to the news media’s interview with Hess.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8u-pjN_rA8

 

Jennings, in an interview with WABC-TV reporter Jeff Rossen, stated that there was “a big explosion.”

 

A fireman stated that “we couldn’t get to them, we went through the building, we were lost … the backside was completely blown away, there was no way to access it, we couldn’t get to them, and finally one of the fire department teams found them…”

 

Although the NIST investigation reported interviews with both Jennings and Hess, FOIA requests for copies of these interviews have been denied.  National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) report did not mention this incident, nor their video-taped witness statements.

 

At the time Hess worked as a lawyer for the city of New York (allegedly in charge of 800 New York City lawyers).  In 2002 he became a business partner with Mayor Rudy Giuliani stating. In 2008, Hess changed his story, stating there was no explosion.

The first analysis of the wreckage was not done by NIST, but was done by FEMA and a volunteer team of members of the American Society of Civil Engineers had to go to landfills to recover suspicious pieces of wreckage.  NIST did not examine the wreckage for explosives.

 

  1.  NIST falsely stated that no steel melted and they failed to tell us why the wreckage stayed too hot for too long:  Almost 12 weeks after the terrorist atrocity at New York’s World Trade Center, there is at least one fire still burning in the rubble – it is the longest-burning structural fire in history.

 

Fires continued to burn in lower Manhattan for 99 days (~14 weeks) after the incident, despite the spraying of water on the rubble for extended periods.

 

On Sept. 16, 2001 the following temperatures in degree F° were noted in eight different locations within the wreckage pile:

     1341
1034
1161
963
801
1377
819
1017

 

A small, localized fire of 800 to 1,000˚F would never have heated any of the steel columns even close to that temperature, because the heat would have been quickly dispersed throughout the building.  A steel beam has to be baked to heat up the whole thing.  One side gets hotter than the other side of a half inch thick steel center core column and the south tower, which collapsed first.

 

When steel gets 900 to 1020ºF° hot it still retains about 60 percent of its strength.  Remember the steel columns were designed to hold up three to five times the weight of the upper floors when not heated by a fire.

 

This tower was struck between floors 78 and 84, so that region is where the fire would have been the biggest. And yet Brian Clark, a survivor, said that when he got down to the 80th floor: “You could see through the wall and the cracks and see flames . . . just licking up, not a roaring inferno, just quiet flames licking up and smoke sort of eking through the wall.” Likewise, one of the fire chiefs who had reached the 78th floor found only “two isolated pockets of fire.”

 

Leslie Robertson, a member of the engineering firm that designed the Twin Towers, said: “As of 21 days after the attack, the fires were still burning and molten steel was still running”.  Knight-Ridder journalist Jennifer Lin, discussing Joe “Toolie” O’Toole, a Bronx firefighter who worked for many months on the rescue and clean-up efforts, wrote: ‘”Underground fires raged for months. O’Toole remembers in February seeing a crane lift a steel beam vertically from deep within the catacombs of Ground Zero.  “It was dripping from the molten steel,” he said’.  Greg Fuchek, vice president of sales for Links Point, Inc., which supplied some of the computer equipment used to identify human remains at the site, described the working conditions as “hellish,” partly because for six months, the ground temperature varied between 600 degrees F° and 1,500 degrees F° or higher.  Fuchek added that “sometimes when a worker would pull a steel beam from the wreckage, the end of the beam would be dripping molten steel.”

 

The two main figures involved in the clean up, Peter Tully, president of Tully Construction, and

Mark Loizeaux, president of Controlled Demolition, Incorporated. Tully said that he saw pools of “literally molten steel” at the site.  Loizeaux said that several weeks after 9/11, when the rubble was being removed, “hot spots of molten steel” were found “at the bottoms of the elevator shafts of the main towers, down seven [basement] levels”  (both statements quoted in Bollyn, 2004).

 

See the photo of yellow hot steel being removed from the WTC wreckage at http://www.911myths.com/html/wtc_molten_steel.html)

 

In addition, yellow colored streams of liquid steel were videotaped dripping from a massive corner support beams before the building collapsed. This looked similar to when a steel worker is cutting steel with a blow torch or welding. The yellow sparks flying off the welding torch are yellow hot small bits of steel. Steel melts at 2,750 degree F so where did the additional 1,750 degrees F. come from.  It takes lots of oxygen blown into a furnace to melt steel.  Messenger-Inquirer report recounts the experiences of Bronx firefighter Toolie O’Toole, who stated that some of the beams lifted from deep within the catacombs of ground zero by cranes were “dripping from the molten steel.”   A massive eight ton steel beam, some six  inches thick by two feet by about 18 inches, was bent in half and there were no cracks in the beam which means the steel beam was likely heated to orange  hot at (1850 F°) to  yellow hot (1950 F°).  A cold steel beam bent would have all kinds of warping and cracks if it were bent only by crushing.

 

Underground fires raged for months.  Joe “Toolie” O’Toole, a Bronx firefighter, remembers in February (2002) seeing a crane lift a steel beam vertically from deep within the catacombs of Ground Zero. “It was dripping from the molten steel,” he said.

 

Ken Holden, who is involved with the organizing of demolition, excavation and debris removal operations there later describes to the 9/11 Commission; “Underground, it was still so hot that molten metal dripped down the sides of the wall from Building 6.” (9/11 Commission hearing, 4/1/03).

 

Leslie Robertson, the structural engineer responsible for the design of the WTC, describes fires still burning and molten steel still running 21 days after the attacks.

 

Alison Geyh, who heads a team of scientists studying the potential health effects of 9/11, reports, “Fires are still actively burning and the smoke is very intense. In some pockets now being uncovered, they are finding molten steel.”

 

Ron Burger, a public health adviser who arrives at Ground Zero on September 12th, says that “feeling the heat” and “seeing the molten steel” there reminds him of a volcano.

 

Firemen sprayed water to cool the debris down but the heat remained intense enough at the surface to melt their boots.” New York firefighters later recall in a documentary film, “heat so intense they encountered rivers of molten steel.”

 

Physics professor Steven E. Jones later claims this molten metal is “direct evidence for the use of high-temperature explosives, such as thermite,” used to deliberately bring down the WTC towers. He says that without explosives, a falling building would have “insufficient directed energy to result in melting of large quantities of metal.”

At least 23 witnesses reported seeing liquid or molten steel in the wreckage. There was a massive re-solidified piece of steel removed from the wreckage that was some 15 feet by six feet in diameter.  The only way it could have formed was in a pool of liquid steel.

 

The president of Tully Construction of Flushing, NY, said he saw pools of “literally molten steel” at ground zero.  Mark Loizeaux, president of Controlled Demolition Inc. (CDI) of Phoenix, MD, as having seen molten steel in the bottoms of elevator shafts “three, four, and five weeks” after the attack.  (Source:  American Free Press by reporter Christopher Bollyn)

 

Eutectic formations (re-solidified hot liquid steel) on the steel beams were analyzed and it was found sulfur molecule.   Structural steel does not contain sulfur.  The word “eutectic” means a new alloy of iron was formed when in a liquid state other elements got mixed with into the steel.  These other elements are those that could come have come from super or nanothermate.  It is a compound that contains sulfur.

 

Pieces of the steel from the wreckage were melted such that an inch to half inch thick steel beam was found with holes in it, like Swiss cheese.  In Appendix C of the FEMA report stated that one of the mysteries of the WTC 7 site was the sulfurization and oxidation on the steel, which caused it to melt.   During chemical analysis of this re-solidified steel, scientists found elements within the steel of sulfur, aluminum, potassium, manganese, fluorine, & titanium.   These are the exact chemical elements used to make the chemical compound, thermate.  Thermate is thermite that has had sulfur added to it in order to make the chemical reaction to burn hotter.

 

Large amounts of microscopic iron-rich spheres were found in the four random samples of World Trade Center dust.  These spheres can only occur after steel is vaporized and then it cools from a vapor back into a solid.  The air pressure from atoms pushes the iron into spheres.  This is the same process that causes rain to form into hail and sometimes get as large as golf balls, not any other shape -spheres.  The boiling point of steel needed to turn steel into a vapor (like water vapor – gaseous water) is over 5,000 degrees F°.  When samples of the nanothermate recovered from the dust of ground zero, they were tested and ignited.  And it was found that when nanothermate burns, microscopic iron sphere are produced.

 

Over 100 fire fighters reported seeing liquid steel flowing in streams within the wreckage, like in a steel mill/factory.  Also yellow color metal was video-taped dripping of a corner of one of the Twin Towers.   This was not liquid aluminum from an airplane, because liquid aluminum is only silver in color as liquid.

 

It takes a furnace to melt steel as well as massive quantities of oxygen being blown into it. It takes hours to bake iron ore before the steel become a liquid.  It took furnace even back during the beginning of the iron age when mankind discovered it.  Back then the furnace was made of clay and iron ore was mixed with charcoal, while some caveman’s wife or kids sat blowing air into it and until liquid iron dripped out the bottom of the furnace. It takes 2,750 degree F. to melt steel. Jet fuel burns at 600 to 800 degrees F.   However, the black smoke coming off the Twin Towers is evidence of what fire fighters call a cool fire.

Shortly before the collapse of south tower, a team of New York fire fighters managed to fight their way up to the 78th floor. An audio tape of their walky-talky radio conversations of this heroic venture was discovered the New York Times.  The firemen reported merely two small fire pockets and ordered some hoses to be sent up.  These were small office fires not raging hot fire infernos, and could not melt nor weaken structural steel.

 

“Battalion Seven…Ladder Fifteen, we’ve got two isolated pockets of fire.  We should be able to knock it down with two lines. Radio that, 78th floor numerous Code Ones” (aka small controllable fires). (http://911research.wtc7.net/mirrors/guardian2/wtc/wtc-demolition.htm)

(http://www.serendipity.li/wot/tarpley_ch_6.pdf)

 

There are video tapes and photographs of pieces of steel beams being removed from the WTC wreckage and they were backed yellow hot.  To turn yellow, the beam or column had to have been cooked to over 1,600 to 2,000 degrees F.  We can tell how hot steel has been heated by the color it turns after baking.  Like you may have seen a blacksmith do in his charcoal fire working a red-orange, hot piece of iron.  In the recovered wreckage was found a massive 8 ton steel bean, some 6 inches thick by 2 feet by about 18 inches, that was bent in half in half in a “U” shape and there were no cracks in the beam.   The only way to bend such a massive piece of steel and there not be cracks develop within the steel at the bent section, is by baking the steel column to orange hot at (1850 F°) to yellow hot (1950 F°).  That is how it is done at the factory.

 

There was a massive Volkswagen size bolder of re-solidified steel and other debris removed from the wreckage.  The only way it could have formed was in a pool of liquid steel that had cooled.

 

Here is a URL/Link to a video of this big chunk of steel and concrete and the U shaped beam.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YaFGSPErKU

 

Thermal imaging photos were taken from an airplane of the wreckage at ground zero six weeks after September 11th, and hot spots were noted at some 1,400 degree F.  Fire fighter reported that their rubber boots were melting from the heat of the wreckage.  Massive quantities of water was continually poured onto the wreckage, but six week after the collapse oxygen starve fire continued to burn and produce white smoke, not gray or black smoke, ONLY WHITE smoke. There is no evidence that I could find of anyone analyzing the makeup of this white smoke, however aluminum oxide gas is white and it is a byproduct of burning thermate.

 

And when nanothermate burns at some 5,000 degree F. it makes white aluminum oxide (white smoke) and nanothermate does not require oxygen in order to burn, so fires could burn in the 9/11 wreckage even without fresh air getting to the fire and even when the firefighters poured water on the wreckage for weeks.  There are oxygen molecules within this compound.

 

Again move evidence that NIST may be guilty of criminal negligence.  Does anyone what to sue NIST?

 

  1. The total time it took for the 110 stories of Twin Towers to collapse was too fast.  It was slightly less than free fall acceleration. According to testimony provided to the 9-11 Commission, the tower fell in 10 seconds. Other data shows it took closer to fourteen seconds.

 

The top sections should have at most smashed some five or ten lower floors and then the collapse should have stopped.  Why?  Because the 47 steel center core columns were thinner and those making up (holding up) the lower floors, were made of thicker center core columns.  Thinner means weighing less.  The outer steel columns were all the same thickness. Within the Twin Towers the lower floors had the center core columns that were five inches thick.  As you move upward the center core columns got thinner from about five inches on the ground floors, to four inches, then three inches, then to two, to one inch thick, then to ½ inch and finally the top floors had center core columns of 1/4 inch thick.

 

Each steel column and beam in the WTC buildings were designed to hold up 3 to 5 times the weight of the upper floors. About 14 to 15 percent of the columns were cut by the impact of the commercial sized airplanes, allegedly 767s.  But the Twin Towers were designed to lose 25 percent of the columns, designed to remain standing after being impacted by a Boeing 707, and the force of 100 mph wind storm from any direction.

 

Therefore, the upper section above the holes made by the commercial size jets, weighed less in both Towers.  Therefore less weight could not crush the floors below because the steel columns got progressively thicker and stronger down lower toward ground level.

 

From watching the video tapes of the collapse of the Twin Towers that day, you should have noticed all the concrete dust blowing south in the nine mph wind.   After the collapse started it was not smoke you saw, but rather very fine concrete dust. This concrete dust had to have come from the concrete flooring.  But when tons of concrete turned to dust in mid-air, that left even less weight to crush the steel columns of lower floors. Furthermore, during the collapse, 20 ton sections of the steel outer columns were moved at 50 to 70 mph some 500 feet outwardly outward, therefore this weight was subtracted from the downward crushing force.   In a collapse due to gravity all the crushing force would have been downward, but every steel column in the Twin Towers was designed to hold up three to five times the weight above it.  With steel outer columns falling off to the sides of the Towers, the lower floors should have been able to even more so, hold up the top sections causing the collapsing to stop.

 

Furthermore, forcing the 20 ton sections outward away from building, could only happen due to massive explosions.

 

This dust came from the 4 to 5 inches of concrete of which the floors were made of.   If you look at photos of the wreckage, you will notice that there are no concrete chunks or floor slabs.  And it was highly unusual for the concrete dust to be pulverized to 100 microns in size.  This concrete flooring was reinforced with welded wire mesh embedded into the inches of concrete.  In fact, firefighters said they did not find any pieces of concrete flooring bigger than an inch or two.  Turning all this concrete flooring to very fine dust was due ONLY to explosions.  The contents of the Twin Towers and WTC 7, such as office furniture, filing cabinets, telephones, computers, and everything to include more than 1,000 bodies magically disappear.  It was all shredded into very small pieces mostly just dust and dirt. It is impossible for this to happen, other than because of explosions.

 

When the south Tower started to collapse, the top section fell over to the southeast to one side of the building, toward the side where airplane entered and broke the outer columns.  This huge section was moving, it had inertia, gravity was causing it to accelerate in a direction off to one side of the building, and this section reached a maximum tipping-over of about 22 degree. This section had a center of gravity off to the side of the lower floors. Therefore, what should have happen is this massive upper section should have fallen off to the southeast side the South Tower. Violating the laws of physics, it did not.  Rather the lower part of the cube appeared to melt into a cloud of explosions, like a cube of butter on a hot frying pan.  And gravity no long pulls it over because there is less and less of it hang over the side of the building.

 

About 14 to 15 percent of the columns were cut by the impact of the 767s.  But the Twin Towers were designed to lose 25 percent of their columns and they would still hold up in a 100 mph wind storm from any direction.  It was judged that the maximum increase of gravitational load on the remaining columns that were not cut in half was 25 percent.  But the Twin Towers were designed to take a 2,000 percent increase of their normal load.   Each steel column was designed to hold up 3 to 5 times its normal weight of the upper floors.   The center core columns were thicker at the lower floors and thinner at higher floors of the Twin Towers.

 

  1.  NIST also lied when they claimed the floor beams sagged 42 inches.  Underwriters Labs (UL) test of the floor beams using twice the normal weight on a floor and heating them for two hours at 1,000 degrees F°.   In this UL test, the floor beams only sagged 3 inches. Therefore, NIST claim that the sagging floor beams cause the outer columns to buckle inward and break is FALSE.  NIST added forces to pull the columns in their computer model that were greater than the sag could have excreted.  The Sagging floors do not weigh any more than non-sagging floors.  On top of that the Twin Towers were floor columns were staggered by design to prevent this pulling inward, from happening.

 

  1.  NIST stated that the Twin Towers did not pancake, but only commented on what they assumed caused the collapse.  In other words, NIST did not have an answer as to why, but that is their job to find out why the Twin Towers was not safe in the event of fire that lasted only an hour or so and given never before or after 9/11 has a whole steel high rise building collapse as a result.

 

  1.  NIST did not check the wreckage for traces of explosives as required by law, nor explain what appeared to be squids caused by explosions or witness reports of hearing explosions.

 

  1.  NIST did not explain how 2 or 3 inch thick steel beams were reduced to paper thin nor did they explain why FEMA found that sulfur molecules were found in these thinned pieces of steel   Structural steel is not made so that it contains sulfur molecules.  Nanothermite is a compound made of some amount of sulfur.

 

  1.  More evidence of nanothermate:

 

The 9/11 first responders suffered from unusual illnesses and aluminum silicates was found in the lung tissue of World Trade Center (WTC) first responders at high levels in “unusual platy configurations.”  “Platy” means consisting of plates or flaky layers —used chiefly of mineral formations, aka Carbon nanotubes.

 

Other common WTC lung ailments include sarcoidosis, which is known to be caused by aluminum dust, and pulmonary fibrosis, which can be caused by aluminum oxide. This suggests a correlation with the causes of the destruction of WTC buildings 1, 2 and 7.  Aluminum oxide – a potential cause of the observed pulmonary fibrosis – is a product of the thermite reaction, and there is now considerable evidence for the use of thermite in the destruction of WTC buildings 1, 2 and 7.  Additionally, aluminum and silicates – potential causes of the observed illnesses of the immune system – are components of nanothermite formulations.

 

Thermite is a mixture of aluminum powder and a metal oxide that, when ignited, exhibits an extremely exothermic reaction producing aluminum oxide and the metal in molten form.

 

Furthermore, the rare cancers found in some first responders could be the result of environmental factors such as the unusually high levels of benzene and derivatives of 1, 3-DPP which suggest the presence of energetic materials like thermite and nanothermite.

 

Analysis of the lung tissue of first responders has also indicated that energetic materials might be involved.  The unusual platy configurations of aluminum silicates found in those lung tissue samples seem similar to the platy configurations of aluminum and silicon in the nanothermite that has been discovered in WTC dust samples.

 

The finding of carbon nanotubes in the lungs of first responders suggests two possible explanations.  The nanotubes might have been formed in the unusual environment at Ground Zero, where extremely high temperatures and the presence of airborne metallic species gives yet more evidence for the presence of thermitic materials.  Alternatively, the nanotubes might have been components of energetic materials.  In either case, the presence of carbon nanotubes in the lungs of WTC first responders suggests the use of energetic materials and should be studied in more depth.

 

These facts and research findings warrant further study of the correlation between environmental testing results, first responder health study results, and the use of energetic materials at the WTC.

 

In 2010, researchers reported the presence of carbon nanotubes in the lungs of World Trade Center first responders.  Carbon nanotubes are high-tech nanostructured materials, which exhibit unique properties like ballistic conduction.  The health effects of carbon nanotubes have been shown to be similar to the health effects produced by exposure to asbestos.

 

Carbon nanotube formation requires three basic components: a source of carbon, a source of heat, and the presence of certain metals.  In particular, formation of the single walled carbon nanotubes found in the lungs of first responders requires that the metals be present. All of these requirements were met at the WTC site on, and for months after, September 11, 2001.

 

The three most effective metals for the synthesis of single walled carbon nanotubes are iron, nickel and cobalt.  Both iron and nickel were present in high concentrations near Ground Zero, as shown by aerosol testing done by a team from the University of California, Davis. Iron oxide and nickel oxide are common oxidants in thermite mixtures.

 

Airborne carbon compounds were certainly present in abundance at Ground Zero in the form of particulate matter resulting from the fire.  Heat was also in abundance, as extremely high temperatures were present on 9/11 and afterward at Ground Zero.  These temperatures were at least 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, hotter than first reported by government scientists, and were far higher than temperatures seen in a normal structure fire.

 

The molten metal and vaporized silicates that have been reported in the WTC dust can only be explained by the presence of an exothermic reaction like the thermite reaction.  Large quantities of carbon nanotubes might have been formed at Ground Zero due to the high temperature environments created by the thermite reaction and the airborne metal catalysts that were also present.

 

A second possible explanation for the carbon nanotubes in the lung tissue of the first responders is that the carbon nanotubes were components of actual energetic materials that were used in the destruction of the buildings.  Carbon nanotubes have been used as energetic modifiers, to improve stabilization of explosives,  and to enhance ignition properties.

  1.  Orange colored primer paint that was applied to the structural steel columns and beams at the factory. When you heat a steel beam the primer paint starts to crack.  This is called mud-cracking because it looks like dried mud cracks in field or a dried up pond.   At about 1,112 F the primer paint starts to peel off.   Testing of the wreckage was done and showed that the pieces only got 480 degrees F° hot.   Another kind of test showed that the piece of wreckage only got up to 1,112 degrees F.   NIST falsely stated a maximum temperature 1,400 degrees F in their computer model of the Twin Tower fire.

 

Jet fuel and/or office furnishings burn at their hottest some 600 to 1,200 degree F. Also there was black smoke coming out of the windows of the WTC buildings.  Firefighters call the appearance of black smoke, a relatively cool fire.  The smoke is black because the fire is not hot enough nor does it have enough oxygen, to turn all the hydrocarbon into fire and heat.

 

Additionally there was a nine mph breeze blowing thru the Towers cooling any steel columns.  When steel cools as those office fires moved to find new firewood (figuratively speaking – aka “hydrocarbon”), the beams no long near the fire and cooled instantly regaining their original strength.  When the fire fighter chiefs reached the fire, he communicated by radio saying, “Battalion Seven…Ladder fifteen, we’ve got two isolated pockets of fire.  We should be able to knock it down with two lines. Radio that, 78th floor numerous code ones” (aka small controllable fires). (http://911research.wtc7.net/mirrors/guardian2/wtc/wtc-demolition.htm)

New York Fire Department radio codes:

Major emergency (Building collapse, train wreck, non-airport plane crash, etc.)

CODE 1 – Enhanced technical rescue resources required

CODE 2 – Enhanced technical rescue resources required – Large Scale (2nd alarm matrix assignment)

 

Meaning it should not be long and without extreme effort, before they had the fires out.   Such was the tone of their radio communication.  Had the situation been overwhelming, this specific team of firefighters would have been in a panic and they did not convey panic, nor cry of additional manpower.

 

It is Impossible to melt steel using jet fuel and/or office fires with a cool breeze blowing thru the building. To do so requires a furnace! Except on 9/11 when this magic happened, I guess.  Fires that only lasted an hour or so in the Twin Towers and then was smothered the fire by wreckage, dust, debris the consistency of dirt, and water from the New York Fire fighters.

 

After 18 months of intensive scientific collaboration, this peer reviewed journal article is announced by Dr. Steven Jones in this DVD.  The implications of this new peer reviewed paper are profound. Dr. Jeff Farrer, PhD., a Materials Science Engineer and Electron Microscopy Lab Manager at BYU, independently confirmed Jones’ findings.

Nanothermite, a highly engineered energetic nanocomposite, was conceived by 1990, and by 2000 had been weaponized, and manufactured in large quantities in top secret military laboratories.  This nano form of thermite does not just burn extremely hot, it explodes!  http://communitycurrency.org/911TV/

  1. Martin Hinckly, PhD threatened Professor Jones and offered him a bribe in the form of a research grant if Jones remove his research paper from the internet.

See this u-tube video of Dr. Jones at http://www.visibility911.org/category/media

Nanothermite was invented and produced by Lawrence Livermore Lab for the US Department of Defense using nanotechnology a year or so prior to Sept. 11th. It burns at some 5,000 degree F. and can melt a hole thru a steel car engine.

 

When he looked at the dust samples, this scientist noticed micron size red-gray chips and later discovered they were nanothermite.  He also found numerous microscopic spheres made of iron. Finding such spheres is highly unusual! In order for such microscopic pieces of iron to become spherical, iron has to boil sending iron molecules into the air, and just like water vapor (aka water molecules, H2O, as a gas), when water vapor cools, it turns into a liquid (aka rain drops).  The frozen rain drops (hail) are round due to air pressure, therefore the same thing happened to form iron spheres in the dust from ground zero.

 

  1.  Building six (WTC 6) collapsed at about the same time as the south Tower.  It was alleged wreckage from the south Tower fell and crushed WTC 6.   However, the north Tower stood between WTC 6, therefore none of the falling wreckage could have caused the damage to WTC 6.  The whole inside of WTC 6 collapsed, yet the outer walls remained standing.  Maybe we need a new investigation because explosives do this kinds of damage.

 

  1.  The first analysis of the wreckage was done by FEMA and a volunteer team of members of the American Society of Civil Engineers at landfills to recover suspicious pieces of steel wreckage.  There was enough steel wreckage collected so that experts could find some very unusual evidence.  For example, one inch thick piece of steel beams were melted paper-thin with swiss-cheese like holes and that could not have happened due to fire.  Furthermore, scientist discovered sulfur molecules imbed within the iron molecules. By doing microscopic analysis of these paper-thin sections of beams, and of re-solidified steel that had dropped as a liquid and cooled rapidly, (aka eutectic formations) as happens to water forming ice cycles.  Structural steel is never made of with sulfur added to it.  Therefore, the steel had to be a liquid when the sulfur molecules got embedded into the steel beam. Also during chemical analysis of this re-solidified steel, scientists found elements within the steel of sulfur, aluminum, potassium, manganese, fluorine, & titanium.   These are the exact chemical elements used to make the chemical compound, thermate.  It has been theorized by metal experts that the sulfur came only from the burning of thermate compound and nanothermate is a mixture of sulfur and other chemical elements. Sulfur is added to this compound to make it burn hotter.

  1. Why the 9/11 alleged hijackers could not have flown the jets.

It is not exceptional for a flight voice recorder or flight data recorder (FDR) to be damaged so badly, no data is recoverable.   But four of them in this incident, defies the odds.  Furthermore, there are two construction workers at ground zero who say they with two alleged FBI agents and say they that the FDRs were found in the wreckage of the Twin Towers and these FBI agents took the FDRs with them when they left ground zero.

Mistaken identity:

Abdulaziz Al Omari, another of the Flight 11 hijack suspects, has also been quoted in Arab news reports. Abdelaziz Al Omari ‘lost his passport in Denver’

He says he is an engineer with Saudi Telecoms, and that he lost his passport while studying in Denver.

Another man with exactly the same name surfaced on the pages of the English-language Arab News.

The second Abdulaziz Al Omari is a pilot for Saudi Arabian Airlines, the report says.

 

Meanwhile, Asharq Al Awsat newspaper, a London-based Arabic daily, says it has interviewed Saeed Alghamdi.  He was listed by the FBI as a hijacker in the United Airlines flight that crashed in Pennsylvania. And there are suggestions that another suspect, Khalid Al Midhar, may also be alive.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_emV0G5FLk&feature=youtu.be

 

The Saudi Airlines pilot, Saeed Al-Ghamdi, 25, and Abdulaziz Al-Omari, an engineer from Riyadh, are furious that the hijackers’ “personal details” – including name, place, date of birth and occupation – matched their own.

 

“You cannot imagine what it is like to be described as a terrorist – and a dead man – when you are innocent and alive.” The airline was angry too. Officials brought Mr Al-Ghamdi back to Saudi Arabia last week for a 10-day holiday to avoid arrest or interrogation.

 

An official said: “We are consulting lawyers about what action to take to protect the reputation of our pilots.” Mr Al-Ghamdi faced further embarrassment when CNN, the American television network, flashed a photograph of him around the world, naming him as a hijack suspect.

 

Mr Al-Omari, who was accused of hijacking the American Airlines plane that smashed into the the World Trade Centre’s north tower, said that he was at his desk at the Saudi telecommunications authority in Riyadh when the attacks took place.

 

He said: “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 FBI has made not attempted to tell Americans that the list of names of alleged hijackers may be wrong, that their photos are wrong, or also the wrong identities and probably wrong nationalities of the real hijackers because

 

When the list was published Robert Mueller, the FBI director, said that it was “fairly confident” that the names were not aliases.

http://web.archive.org/web/20011222042847/http://www.portal.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=%2Fnews%2F2001%2F09%2F23%2Fwiden23.xml

 

Waleed Al-Shehri has told Saudi journalists in Casablanca that he had nothing to do with the attacks on New York and Washington, and had been in Morocco at the time.   He acknowledges that he attended flight training school at Dayton Beach in the United States, and is indeed the same Waleed Al-Shehri to whom the FBI has been referring. But, he says, he left the United States in September last year, and became a pilot with Saudi Arabian Airlines, and is currently on a further training course in Morocco.

The FBI belatedly claimed to have made two sensational discoveries — a red bandana and a passport allegedly belonging to the hijackers.  These items turned up as prosecution evidence earlier this year at the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, the so-called 20th hijacker and only terrorist to be convicted over the 9/11 atrocities.

It is notable that The 9/11 Commission Report fails to mention the negative written evaluation by Hanjour’s Jet Tech flight instructor.  The omission is serious because a glance at the timeline shows that Hanjour’s 5-6 weeks of training at Jet Tech occurred in February-March 2001.  During three flights over two days in a single-engine Cessna 172, flight instructors Sheri Baxter and Ben Conner observed what others had before them.  That is, Hanjour had trouble controlling and landing the aircraft.  On their recommendation, the Freeway airport’s chief instructor Marcel Bernard refused to rent Hanjour a plane. Conner says he fully expected to testify before the commission, but the call never came.

In the months before the September 11, 2001 Hanjour rented planes at several small airports on the outskirts of New York City and Washington DC., and the 9/11 Commission mentions this.  But they failed to mention that on May 29, 2001 Hanjour rented a plane at a small airport in Teterboro, New Jersey, however, the next day, when Hanjour returned for a repeat flight the same instructor “would not allow it because of Hanjour’s poor piloting skills.”

Just three days aft after Hani Hanjour failed a flight evaluation in a small Cessna 172 at Freeway airport he showed up at Congressional Air Charters, located down the road at Gaithersburg airport, also in the Washington DC suburbs. Once again Hanjour attempted to rent a plane, and again he was asked to go up with an instructor for a flight evaluation to confirm his flight skills. The plane was the same: a Cessna 172. Yet, on this occasion Hanjour passed with flying colors and, later, this other instructor gave testimony to the commission that turned out to be crucial. The final report mentions the instructor’s name, Eddie Shalev.  Congressional Air Charters was owned by a Monty Lilley who was convicted in 1992 of stealing $3 million from his employee pension fund.

David Ray Griffin had already identified the key questions in his 2008 book The New Pearl Harbor Revisited. Wrote Griffin: “How could an instructor (Eddie Shalev and working without a green card) in Gaithersburg have had such a radically different view of Hanjour’s abilities from that of all of the other flight instructors who worked with him?  Shalev’s evaluation, made just days apart was contradictory to these other and raises the disturbing questions. Shalev told the 9-11 Commission that Hanjour was a good pilot who he thought “may have had training from a military pilot. ” Hanjour was the alleged hijack pilot of American Airlines (AA 77).  How is it that an alleged devote Muslim from Saudi Arabia winds up taking flight lessons from an Israeli pilot?

Eddie Shalev is an Israeli and served in the Israeli army. The file states that “Mr. Shalev served in the Israeli Defense Forces in a paratroop regiment. He was a jumpmaster on a Boeing C-130. Mr. Shalev moved to the Gaithersburg area in April 2001 and was sponsored for employment by Congressional Air Charters…[which] has subsequently gone out of business.” http://screwloosechange.blogspot.com/2009/07/troofers-get-raging-jew-clue.html

 

While it is true that Hanjour trained at various flight schools in the US, the evidence shows he was a perpetual novice. Hanjour dropped out of his first school, the Sierra Academy of Aeronautics, located in Oakland, after attending only a few classes. Next, he enrolled at Cockpit Resource Management (CRM), a flight school in Scottsdale, Arizona. But his performance as a student at CRM was less than adequate. Duncan K.M. Hastie, owner of the school, described Hanjour as “a weak student” who was “wasting our resources.” After several weeks, Hanjour withdrew from the program, then returned in 1997 for another short period of instruction. This on and off pattern of behavior was typical of the man. Hastie says that over the next three years Hanjour called him at least twice a year, and each time wanted to return for more training. By this time, however, it was obvious to Hastie that his erstwhile student had no business in a cockpit. Hastie refused to let Hanjour come back. “I would recognize his voice,” Hastie said. “He was always talking about wanting more training. Yes, he wanted to be an airline pilot. That was his stated goal. That’s why I didn’t allow him to come back. I thought ‘You’re never going to make it’.” Other accounts by Newsday, the New York Times, as well as the FOX network, all confirm that Hani Hanjour was at best a novice pilot. Peggy Chevrette, operation manager at Jet Tech in the Phoenix area later told FOX News: “I couldn’t believe that he had a license of any kind with the skills that he had.” In his evaluation the Jet Tech flight instructor wrote that the “student [Hanjour] made numerous errors during his performance and displayed a lack of understanding of some basic concepts… He will need much more experience flying smaller A/C [aircraft] before he is ready to master large jets.”

The Washington Post, interviewed aviation experts who stated that the 757 plane allegedly piloted by Hani Hanjour [AA Flight 77] had been flown “with extraordinary skill, making it highly likely that a trained pilot was at the helm.”

The 9/11 Commission Report fails to discuss or even mention these negative written evaluations, even while presenting Hanjour’s substandard performance in a Boeing 737 simulator as sufficient evidence that Hanjour could fly a Boeing 757. Curiously, The 9/11 Commission Report acknowledges Hanjour’s sub-standard flying skills. The report even mentions that flight instructors had urged Hanjour to give up trying to become a pilot. Strangely, however, another passage (in a footnote) describes Hanjour as “the most experienced pilot” of the other hijackers.

Experienced commercial airlines pilot Philip Marshall, in his book False Flag 911, he states categorically that the alleged 9/11 hijacker pilots, including Hani Hanjour, could never have flown 767s and 757s into buildings at high speed without advanced training and practice flights in that same aircraft over a period of months. As Marshall put it, “Hitting a 70-foot tall target (wall of the Pentagon and entering at the 12 foot high ground floor or first floor of the Pentagon) with a 757 at 360 mph is extremely difficult — absolutely impossible for first-time fliers of a heavy airliner.”

Obviously, the commission screened out testimony that conflicted with the official narrative. The FBI file also conspicuously fails to mention the Jet Tech instructor’s written evaluation of Hani Hanjour’s flying skills. It was later made public at the trial of Zacharias Moussaoui. This means, when the document was submitted, the Commission surely had it and they suppressed it.  The omission easily qualifies as suppression of evidence.

Hanjour allegedly circled the Pentagon in a 330 degree descending turn according to radar data.  Why didn’t he just crash the AA77 into the middle of the Pentagon, a much easier target?  http://911blogger.com/node/20573

 

Many skilled commercial 767 and 757 pilots stated they could not hit the Twin Towers like occurred and at the Pentagon. It is also important to realize that even if Hani Hanjour had mastered the controls of a Boeing 737, (he could not safely fly a small private airplane) without experience he could never have executed the high-speed suicide crash in a Boeing 757.   Also none of alleged hijacker would have known how to do the 330 degree turn with coordinated flight, (aka without sideslip). That takes skill.  Only an expert airline pilot would know how to use an airplane’s rudder to that.  During the entry to a turn, adverse yaw causes the airplane’s nose to yaw in the opposite direction unless the pilot compensates with rudder.  A person has to be a licensed pilot to understand why this is irrefutable evidence.

 

Furthermore, crashing a jet into the US Capitol building would have made much bigger news given the 757 was headed directly toward it.  How would the alleged hijacker know there were so many US Air Force war games ongoing prior to and on September 11th, so that they could have a greater chance of  not being shot down by F-16s flying into restricted air space?

 

There is evidence that the hijackers were more interested in learning take off or land a large commercial airplane, rather than flying one. That was suspicious in itself and caused some FBI field reports to be made which were apparently blocked. On July 10, 2001 by FBI special agent Kenneth Williams, then stationed in Phoenix, Arizona, sent a letter sent to FBI headquarters (The Phoenix Memo) recommending the assembling of a worldwide listing of civil aviation schools.  David Frasca was the head of the FBI’s fundamentalist terrorist unit at the time and is considered to be responsible for not making these recommendations known to other relevant investigative units. He was promoted by the Bush administration after the 9/11 attacks.  https://wikispooks.com/wiki/Phoenix_Memo

 

  1. As George Nelson, Colonel, USAF, retire, pointed out “that none of the found parts have part numbers or serial numbers on them; not at the Pentagon and not at Pennsylvania.Impossible! For production control, manufacturers stamp such part numbers on virtually EVERY “critical flight” piece of an aircraft. The major components are marked with the manufacturer’s serial numbers. http://home.comcast.net/~skydrifter/exp.htm

 

After a FOIA request, the FBI and the FAA have refused to reveal aircraft component serial number data in their possessions that would confirm these serial numbers agree with the federal registry identifications of all commercial civil aircraft.

 

  1.  Despite hundreds of eyewitness reports of explosions throughout the Twin Towers by survivors, emergency service personnel, reporters, and bystanders, the 9/11 Commission Report contains virtually no mention of them and entirely ignores them in its conclusions.  Graeme MacQueen‘s, a retired university professor, analyzed oral histories of 9/11 taken from 503 New York Fire fighters reveals more than 100 reported explosions in the Twin Towers and 18 other witness statements and/or feeling the ground shake under foot on September 11, 2001.

 

NIST reported it had no evidence of witnesses reporting hearing explosions.

 

However, when a group of scholars including scientists and a lawyer called NIST on this false statement, NIST refined its meaning, saying:  “NIST reviewed all of the interviews conducted by the FDNY of firefighters (500 interviews). . . . Taken as a whole, the interviews did not support the contention that explosives played a role in the collapse of the WTC Towers. “ Taken as a whole?  Explain yourself NIST.

http://www.911truth.org/explosive-testimony-revelations-twin-towers-in-911-oral-histories/

 

NYPD officer Craig Bartmer said: “I was real close to Building 7 when it fell down. . . I started running . . . and the whole time you’re hearing “boom, boom, boom, boom, boom.”

http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-mysterious-collapse-of-wtc-seven/15201

 

NIST claims that there were very big, very hot fires covering much of the north face of the 12th floor at 5:00 PM. Around 4:45 PM, a photograph showed fires on Floors 7, 8, 9, and 11 near the middle of the north face; Floor 12 was burned out by this time.

 

Other photographs even show that the 12th floor fire had virtually burned out by 4:00. And yet NIST now claims that fires were still going strong at 5:00 PM.

 

At least a couple fire fighters while they were walking up the Twin Tower stairs to get to the floor to fight the fires, but when they got to about the 20th floor an explosion occurred nearby them slightly injuring them both.  These two firefighters fled the building and warned others of the risks from “secondary explosions.”  This and many similar firefighter statements were not in the NIST report.  NIST did not test for evidence of explosives as is required by the standard policy for doing investigations.

 

One of 16 perimeter columns were examined in the recovered wreckage and only three had evidence that the pre-collapse steel columns reached the temperature over 480 degrees F.  No evidence was found by NIST that the pre-collapse fires were hot enough to significantly affected/effected the microstructure of the steel that would have resulted in weakening of the columns.   Softening of the steel column would have begun at about 1,100 degrees F.  (NIST NCSTAR 1-3C, p. 236) (NIST NC Star 1, p. 90)

 

Pentagon eyewitnesses said:  Charles H Krohn: “One of the aircraft’s engines somehow ricocheted out of the building and arched into the Pentagon’s mall parking area between the main building and the new loading dock facility, said Charles H. Krohn, the Army’s deputy chief of public affairs. Those fleeing the building heard a loud secondary explosion about 10 min. after the initial impact.”

 

Mary Lyman:  “‘I saw a plane coming what I thought was toward National Airport, which is very close. You see that all the time. But this one looked different. It was at a very steep angle, and going very fast. I had been hearing about the World Trade Center before I left, and wondered, is this part of that? Then the plane disappeared, smoke started coming up, and traffic came to a complete stop,” Lyman said. “We all got out of our cars. We heard another couple of explosions, and I ran and got back in my car.”

 

  1.  Explosions in the Twin Towers before it collapsed

 

William Rodriguez said, “When I heard the sound of the explosion, the floor beneath my feet vibrated, (and moved upward), the walls started cracking and it everything started shaking.” He was huddled together with at least 14 other people in the office. … At this point, Rodriguez was in sub-basement B1 of the North Tower, approximately 1,100 feet below the airplane’s impact point at floors 93 to 98.

He said, “Seconds after the first massive explosion below in the basement still rattled the floor, I hear another explosion from way above,” said Rodriguez.  “Although I was unaware at the time, this was the airplane hitting the tower, it occurred moments after the first explosion.”

But before Rodriguez had time to think, co-worker Felipe David stormed into the basement office with severe burns on his face and arms, screaming for help and yelling “explosion! explosion! explosion!”

David had been in front of a nearby freight elevator on sub-level 1 about 400 feet from the office when fire burst out of the elevator shaft, causing his injuries.

“He was burned terribly,” said Rodriguez. “The skin was hanging off his hands and arms. His injuries couldn’t have come from the airplane above, but only from a massive explosion below. I don’t care what the government says, what scientists say. I saw a man burned terribly from a fire that was caused from an explosion below.

“I know there were explosives placed below the trade center. I helped a man to safety that is living proof; living proof the government story is a lie and a cover-up….”

 

Anthony Saltalamacchia Maintenance Supervisor: “The explosion came from — I believe at first we believed that it came from the Mechanical Room.  The Mechanical Room was below them in a lower sub-basement.   “The amount of explosions I heard from 8:46 AM to the time we got out was so many – at least ten – it was just like multiple explosions to where I felt there was different grenades, that’s what it sounded like, like different grenades being set off in the building,” said Saltalamacia.  “It was one major explosion and then there was different explosions throughout that period of time until we got out,” he added.

Mike Pecoraro was working in mechanical shop in the second sub basement… when the lights flickered, and the room they were working in began to fill with a white smoke.  He and another worker decided to go down to the B3 level to a small machine shop where Vito Deleo and David Williams were supposed to be working.  When the two arrived, they found the machine shop gone.  There was nothing there but rubble, Mike said, “We’re talking about a 50 ton hydraulic press?  Gone!”

 

He saw a perfect line of smoke streaming through the air. “You could stand here,” he said, “and two inches over you couldn’t breathe.  We couldn’t see through the smoke so we started screaming for Deleo and Williams.”  As they made their way to the parking garage, but found that it, too, was gone.  “There were no walls, there was rubble on the floor, and you can’t see anything” Pecoraro said.  They decided to ascend two more levels to the building’s lobby.  The smoke in the stairwell was constant.  As they ascended to the B Level, one floor above, they were astonished to see a steel and concrete fire door that weighed about 300 pounds, wrinkled up “like a piece of aluminum foil” and lying on the floor.

 

Pecoraro walked through the open doorway and found two people lying on the floor. One was a female Carpenter and the other an elevator operator. They were both badly burned and injured.

 

Numerous other WTC basement workers, including Felipe David and Salvatore Giambanco, have also gone public with eyewitness testimony concerning massive sub-level explosions that took place before Flight 11 hit the north tower.

 

Construction worker Phillip Morelli describes being thrown to the ground by two explosions while in the fourth sub basement (B4) of the North Tower. The first, which threw him to the ground and seemed to coincide with the plane crash, was followed by a larger blast that again threw him to the ground and this time blew out walls.  He then made his way to the South Tower and was in the subbasement there when the second plane hit, again associated with a powerful underground blast.

http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/november2004/281104anotheraccount.htm)

 

WTC worker Marlene Cruz told journalist Peter Jennings in an interview with ABC News that she was also rocked by an explosion in the basement level of the north tower.

http://hidhist.wordpress.com/terror/911/the-twin-towers/new-eyewitness-to-wtc-basement-level-explosions/

 

“As we’re standing there, more explosions were happening,” said Saltalamacia, before he urged Rodriguez and the other workers to leave the building.  The group left and initially headed towards the lobby before they realized it too had been partially destroyed.

 

The following is what William Rodriguez said he eyewitnessed in the North Tower (WTC1). He had been working at the Twin Tower complex for 20 years, was acknowledged a hero for the many lives he saved that day, and he was the last person out of the building before it came down):

Link: http://www.newswithviews.com/Spingola/deanna17.htm

 

At first Rodriguez thought it was a generator that had exploded. But the cement walls in the office cracked from the explosion. “When I heard the sound of the explosion, the floor beneath my feet vibrated, the walls started cracking and everything started shaking.” said Rodriguez, who was crowded together with fourteen other people in the office including Anthony Saltamachia, his supervisor for the American Building Maintenance Company.

 

Just seconds later there was another explosion way above which made the building oscillate momentarily. This, he was later told, was a plane hitting the Tower at about the 90th floor. Upon hearing about the plane, he immediately thought of the people up in the restaurant. Then there were other explosions just above B1 and individuals started heading for the loading dock to escape the explosion’s resulting rampant fire. When asked later about those first explosions he said: “I would know if an explosion was from the bottom or the top of the building.” He heard explosions both before and after the plane hit the Tower.

 

When firefighters arrived they also say they found that an explosion had happened in the lobby of the Twin Towers and this damage was videotaped.

 

After helping his injured co-workers out of the north Tower, William Rodriguez aided the firefighters gain access to doors to the upper floors because he had keys to open doors to the floors connected to a stairway.  As he and firefighters ascended up the stairwell they heard explosions from the 20th through the 30th floor. Chunks of the building were falling down all around them and they could literally hear the building coming down. Yet, the firemen continued to climb and give aid.

 

Two or three firefighters were interviewed on video tapes and they stated they have been in an explosion on or near the 20th floor.  Out of a total of 503 statements made by fire fighters about their experiences in or near the World Trade Center building, 118 stated they heard explosions and only about ten of their statements agreed with the official story.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZ4dVo5QgYg

 

 

Mike Pecoraro stated, “When I walked out into the lobby, it was incredible,” he recalled. “The whole lobby was soot and black, elevator doors were missing. The marble was missing off some of the walls. 20-foot section of marble, 20 by 10 foot sections of marble, gone from the walls”.  The west windows were all gone. They were missing.  These are tremendous windows.  They were just gone. Broken glass everywhere, the revolving doors were all broken and their glass was gone.  Every sprinkler head was going off. I am thinking to myself, how are these sprinkler heads going off?  It takes a lot of heat to set off a sprinkler head.

 

The following video link of William Rodriguez and was corroborated by 37 eyewitnesses in the WTC1 basement.  SEE  http://www.jonhs.net/911/william_rodriguez.htm

 

When talking about the lobby damage and his experiences, Rodriguez added, When I got to the lobby, the passenger elevators in the field of view, their doors were popped open sideways like a pyramid, from the bottom up.”

 

New York Fire Department (NYFD) Lieutenant William Walsh said he was concerned specifically the middle, local elevators that were blown off their hinges from below, as evidenced by the doors resting outward at 45 degree angles that met in the middle near the bottom. These local elevators serviced only Floors 34 down to the lowest level of the building, Level B6 in the basement. They could not have been the result of aircraft impact:

 

Transcript of testimony by New York Fire Department Lt. William Walsh SEE http://graphics8.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/nyregion/20050812_WTC_GRAPHIC/9110442.PDF

 

Lt. William Walsh said:  “In the center of these two elevator shafts would be elevators that go to the lower floors. They were blown off the hinges. That’s where the service elevator was also.”

 

Question:  “Were these elevators that went to the upper floors? They weren’t side lobby elevators?”

 

Lt. William Walsh: “No, no, I’d say that they went through floors 30 and below.”

 

Question: And they were blown off?

 

Chief Congiusta: “They were blown off the hinges, and you could see the shafts. The elevators on the extreme north side and the other express elevator on the extreme south side, they looked intact to me from what I could see, the doors anyway… So I headed for the B stairway. I did not want to deal with elevators.”

 

Additional corroboration of the elevators being blown out is provided by Lt. Brian Becker & Firefighter Robert Byrne.  Here is a URL/link to the transcript of their testimony.

It is more than remarkable that the 9/11 Commission, although it had heard the testimony of William Rodriguez regarding the explosions in the basements, did not deem it important enough to be included in the 9/11 Commission Report. In Rodriguez’s testimony he says many of his fellow witnesses wanted to give their testimony to the Commission, and tried repeatedly to bring this about, but the 9/11 Commission never called any of them. Rodriguez said the only reason he was able to appear out of all of them was because he was instrumental in bringing about the actual formation of the Commission.  That is, he was heavily involved with many of the families of the victims who were trying to get a commission formed to investigate 9/11.

 

Here is a URL/link to a video of evidence of explosions in the Twin Towers.  You need to take a close look at the white smoke trail coming off large sections of steel outer perimeter columns.   Steel does not burn, so how is it that this white smoke trail.   When nanothermate burns it produces white smoke which is aluminum oxide.   You can also see explosions racing down the side of the building just as fast at these sections of outer columns are falling.

In the following URL/links is a video where you can see the dark smoke puffs or clouds from a series of explosions (aka squids) as they move upward toward the roof and on the side of WTC 7.

Here is a still photo photo.  The explosions moving upward are occurring so fast the camera only show five or six smoke clouds as if they all happened at the same time, vs. one after the other.   http://www.911myths.com/html/squib_timing.html

 

Here is another URL/link of these rapid explosions moving upward on a different side of WTC7.   (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=972ETepp4GI&feature=fvwrel

 

There are many other video tapes of the Twin Tower collapse where orange-yellow flashes of light can be seen within the concrete dust clouds.  Yellow flashes of light are made during explosions.   The speeds of these flashes are exactly what people see during a controlled demolition.

 

World Trade Center building Six (WTC 6) was an eight-story building that stood directly northeast of to the North Tower.  See the below website/link for photos of an explosion happening in WTC6 with a rising dust cloud of pulverized concrete and yet, the North Tower is still standing.

Here are the words of a New York City EMT Patricia Ondrovic telling about her harrowing day at the WTC on 9/11.  Within minutes after the South Tower collapses, she witnessed the WTC 5 blowing up, cars exploding, and explosions inside the lobby of the WTC 6, all the while narrowly escaping with her own life.

 

Interviewer (KT): Where did they want you to move your vehicles to, any particular spot, or just “away” from the WTC?

 

Patricia Ondrovic (PO): “Just get ready to move fast” is the phrase I remember.

 

KT: Did they want you to move away from the area right away, or just get ready to move if another plane was coming in?

 

PO: I don’t know, they just told us to get our equipment, put it back in the vehicles and “get ready to move…fast”. At that point, they seemed to realize it just wasn’t a safe place to be.

 

KT: In retrospect, did it seem a little too coincidental that they told all of the rescuers to get ready to move out of the area minutes before the Tower collapsed?

 

PO: It was a bit eerie at the time as well. In that job, when someone tells you to “just move fast” there’s nothing to question, you just move. We had been on scene for a while before just setting up and waiting for patients and all of a sudden there was so much activity. It did seem odd that after being there for some time all of a sudden everyone had to get ready to get out. I personally never expected the buildings to come down.

 

KT: What did you do when the South Tower started coming down?

 

PO: I didn’t know what was happening, but there was a loud “roar” — lots of crashing sounds. I was attempting to put my stretcher back into the vehicle. The ground was shaking and I saw a sea of people, mostly the various agencies on scene, Fire, Police, EMS, all running towards me. I had no idea what they were running from, but I decided I’d be ahead of them and just started running west towards the river.

 

As I was running, parked cars were blowing up and some were on fire, the street was cracking a bit as well. Very shortly after I started running, everything became one big black cloud. I was near the West Side Highway and I couldn’t see around me anymore.

 

KT: Can you estimate how many vehicles blew up around you?

 

PO: At least three and some were on fire as I was running by. I was still on the south side of Vesey running west. The burning cars were between my ambulance and about the middle of the Six World Trade where the lobby doors were at.

 

KT: Were you running on the street, or up the sidewalk?

 

PO: Up the sidewalk.

 

PO: I remember parts flying off — I think I got hit with a car door. I remember they were also on fire, but I don’t specifically recall the movie type fireball, but there was a loud bang as the door flew off the one car I was running past.

 

KT: Do you have any idea what was causing these vehicles to catch on fire and/or explode? Was the air temperature really hot as you were running by these cars?

 

PO: I don’t know what was causing them to blow up. I didn’t know at the time that I was trying to outrun a skyscraper falling on me, but after I found out what I ran from. I figured it was the impact of the building falling and residual effect. I am not an engineer, so I can only guess at a probable cause. I don’t remember feeling any extreme heat.

 

PO: They were unmarked cars, most likely privately owned. I didn’t see any SUVs, trucks or any official vehicles on fire.

 

KT: Were these cars all parked next to each other?

 

PO: They were parallel parked. There was no discernible order to what was on fire. It was all very chaotic.

 

KT: You mentioned you were running west on Vesey Street, what happened after that?

 

PO: I just kept running. I was aware there were other people running as well. After passing the cars on fire, I was trying to find someplace safe. I tried to run into the lobby of 6 World Trade, but there were federal police — maybe 4 to 6 of them — standing in the open doorways. As I tried to run in, they wouldn’t let me.  Waving me out, telling me “you can’t come in here, keep running.” As I turned to start running west again, I saw a series of flashes around the ceiling of the lobby all going off one-by-one like the Christmas lights that chase in pattern. I think I started running faster at that point.

 

KT: Did you hear any “popping” sounds when each of these flashes in the WTC 6 lobby, were going off?

 

PO: Yes, that part was like a movie. The pops were at the same time as the flashes.

 

PO: I immediately got the impression they were timed explosives. I have never thought they were anything else, not then, not now.

 

KT: Have you ever seen a building being demolished with explosives on TV and the flashes and pops similar to that?

 

PO: It did remind me of just that. I had seen something on a Las Vegas casino being demolished and that’s what it reminded me of.

 

KT: Can you estimate either how many flashes you saw or how many of these “pops” you heard inside this lobby?

 

PO: At least six before I was turned away.

 

KT: Could you still hear any of these explosions when you turned to run back out, or was the noise outside too loud?

 

PO: I don’t recall hearing any more when I resumed running. It was very chaotic.

 

KT: Now to be clear, were you inside the Lobby of the WTC 6, or were you outside the building when you witnessed these what appeared to be explosions?

 

PO: I was in the doorway, but not inside the lobby. I remember being able to breathe the somewhat cleaner air coming from inside the building. They stopped me as I was trying to get past the threshold.

 

KT: Were the explosions going off as you were entering the lobby area, or did they seem to start going off after the police tried to turn you away?

 

PO: It all happened at the same time. As I got to the doorway, I was told not to come in. As the officer was telling me I couldn’t get in the building the flashes starting going off.

 

KT: Where the police just right at the lobby door, or were some also way inside the building?

PO: There were probably 4-5 officers in the doorway. I could see a few others back in the lobby area.

 

KT: You said you saw “federal police.” What exactly do you mean and did you find it strange they were in there and that they wouldn’t let you in?

 

PO: Well, they were in light brown uniforms and “Smokey the bear” hats. I assumed they were federal police because NYC police don’t look like that and I knew there was a lot of federal offices in the WTC as well as the surrounding area, so it wasn’t strange to me to see them there, but I did find it very odd that they wouldn’t let me in to get cover. But like I say, in that profession, someone tells you to go an opposite way you are going, you don’t ask, you just go. I remember hoping they got out as I was watching whatever the small explosions were, because they stayed in the building. They weren’t locking it up after evacuating or anything like that.

 

KT: Did these policemen run out of the WTC 6 lobby after these explosions occurred, or could you tell?

 

PO: It didn’t look like they did. It looked like they were there making sure no one ran in like I tried to do. I remember seeing them in the doorway, but don’t know what happened to them after that.

 

KT: At the time, who did you think planted these explosives in there?

 

PO: I didn’t have any notions of where to put blame per se, but I remember thinking that it was possibly the same organization who tried to blow up the building back in 1993. I figured they came back to finish the job. At the time I was running, I remember thinking that “they” wired the whole area. At the time I wasn’t aware that what made the towers catch fire were passenger jets crashing. I thought the buildings had bombs planted to go off that day.

Seismic shock wave occurred close to the time the airplanes hit the Twin Tower Buildings and near the time all three World Trade Center buildings collapsed.

The seismic signals propagating from New York on September 11, 2001, were recorded 34 km away on a seismograph operated by the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University (LDEO).  The recorded data was subjected to a new critical study. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate that the nature of the waves, their velocities, frequencies, and magnitudes invalidate the official story of 9/11.

 

“We demonstrate that only strong explosives could be the cause of such seismic waves, in accordance with the observed low frequencies. According to the nature of the recorded waves (body and surface waves), we can propose a location of each explosive source. According to the presence of shear waves or the presence of Rayleigh waves only, we hypothesize a subterranean explosion.  (aka below the surface of the ground or sub-aerial)  For example, if tons and tons of explosive were exploded from on top of a tower, most of the shock wave moves thru the air and not the ground.

 

The witnesses and video observation confirm our conclusions of sub-aerial explosions close to the times of aircraft impacts on WTC1 and WTC2, a strong subterranean explosion closely correlated with the WTC1 collapse, and sub-aerial explosions closely correlated with the WTC2 and WTC7 collapsed.

 

This article explains why a large commercial size airplane crashing into the Twin Towers would not produce the seismic waves, nor the fall of the buildings.  Only massive amounts of explosive could produce the recorded seismic signals.   “Given that neither the crashes into the towers, nor their vibration, nor the fall of debris can be the source of the seismic waves registered 34 kilometers away…”  “Based upon the kind of waves coming from WTC2 and WTC7, they each underwent one or more very large sub-aerial explosions, heard and reported by witnesses.”

http://www.journalof911studies.com/resources/RousseauVol34November2012.pdf

 

Seismic records, consolidated from four seismology stations in the region, originally pegged the impact time at 10.06 AM. It was only later that the Pentagon and the 9/11 Commission stated the time of the crash into the big hole in the ground was at 10.03 AM.

 

  1.  Dennis Cimino went to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB)’s website and downloaded the flight data that was allegedly NTSB got from the flight data recordings (FDR) inside flight AA 77’s black box (flight data recorder) recovered at the Pentagon. Cimino concluded it was data was faked.  He came to this conclusion because the spreadsheet noted the serial numbers for the Airplane identification data and fleet identification data were 00000 and 00000. There should have been serial numbers instead of zeros in both of these data fields. These serial numbers are provided to the manufacturer of the flight data recorder (FDR) by the FAA.  There serial numbers are then downloaded into the FDR when it is being assembled at the factory.   Also Cimino noticed the data print out that the power-on sequences were not noted and there were too many of them.   What happens when a pilot turns on the power to the airplane, the FDR starts recording.  Also the FDR sends a warning light to the pilot if the FDR is not working correctly.   This is called the power-on sequence which should have been noted in the data released by the NTSB.   And when he questioned the NTSB about the irrationality of the data, data that any pilot would see wasn’t real, they gave no answer, they did not respond.

 

These serial number problems would have set off an audio alarm as soon as the pilots turned on the electrical power to start up the jet engines. It is illegal for a commercial pilot to fly when the flight data alarm goes off.  If such an error is observed in any commercial airplane flight data recorder, the aircraft is grounded until fixed.

 

Cimino is an expert with over 30 years of advance research experience in the following areas:  SPH-2 RAVIR , flight data recorders and data ,  video processing , radar, radar recorders, radar signal propagation, IFF /// friendly or foe /// / ( the ID code number that comes up on the radar scope at the FAA aircraft control center and tells, Aerodynamics and flight systems, and is a commercial pilot.

 

The data file dump from the crash protected memory module from AA 77 (757 numbered N644AA) of the FDR indicates it was downloaded onto a test station a full day before they allegedly found the recorder.  The FDR recorder records every time the power is turn-on for the airplane and the FDR boots up (as in your computer booting up).  There were too many “sequencing” or powering-up noted.  No pilot would turn-on and turn-off, the airplane and FDR. Therefore, it appears the data was faked in a flight data recorder maintenance shop.

 

There is further evidence that the flight data is not from an American Airlines jet, nor from AA 77, because the latitude and longitude coordinates in the data, show AA 77 more than 3,000 feet in error at time of departure from Washington Dulles International Airport.  The direction that flight AA 77 was heading just prior to impact (62.5 degrees) and the altitude it was flying, did not match that which was noted on NTSB’s flight data recorder data.  We know this because the 757 hit five or six street light poles with its wings and by doing calculations, the real direction and altitude were determined.  The FDR showed the airplane at 380 feet above the ground on impact, yet the plane flew inches above the ground into the ground floor of the Pentagon. http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=21149

 

The flight data recorder also shows that the alleged 757 did a 4,400 feet per minute dive into the building and it also shows a top speed of 535 mph prior to impact.  Had the plane accelerated to this speed shown on the flight data recorder, it would have begun to shed parts and also begun to break up in flight.   Nothing much more than about 350 knots (360 mph) indicated airspeed can be achieved at or around sea level in this airplane.

After more than four years of research by Pilots For 9/11 Truth there is overwhelming evidence which suggests the data that is being provided to the public through the FOIA, is not from an aircraft which has been operated by American Airlines in the case of the attack on the Pentagon.  N644AA (American Airlines Flight 77) was not equipped with a Global Positioning Systems (GPS). However, the data provided by the NTSB, shows a GPS as “operational.”

 

The data shows that the Latitude/Longitude plots auto-aligned with Radar plots in flight after departure. American Airlines aircraft do not have the capability of in flight alignment nor would such an aircraft depart with such a large error and an Inertial Reference System (IRS) as its primary source for navigation. It is impossible for an IRS equipped American Airlines jet to give accurate position information if the system was not aligned at the gate. The aircraft needs to be stationary for proper alignment or else the navigational device will have large errors and could perhaps be fatal. According to American Airlines 757/767 Captain Ralph Kolstad who has actual flight time in N644AA, if the Inertial Reference System (IRS) is lost in flight (or shows large errors), an emergency has to be declared.

 

How can an auto-align occur airborne if American Airlines aircraft do not have this capability nor a GPS? This is more evidence demonstrating the data did not come from an American Airlines jet.

A Nov. 26, 2007 FOIA request of the Federal Aviation Administration for the last known serial numbers fixed onto the flight data recorders and other components on the aircraft was denied. With flight data recorder serial numbers one can trace an installed device to a particular registered aircraft through manufacturer or airline records. (http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=11066)

 

The FBI and the FAA have refused to reveal aircraft component serial number data in their possessions that would confirm these serial numbers agree with the federal registry identifications of all commercial civil aircraft.

 

The NTSB spreadsheet of the FDR data showed that the autopilot was never turned off as the pilots were fighting with the alleged hijackers.  Any sudden pushing or bulling of the steering wheel of the airplane (called the yoke) or push on the rudder pedals, would cause the autopilot to disengage (turns off and the pilot must now fly the airplane.

 

The Digital Flight Data Acquisition Unit sent information to the flight data recorder noting that the flight deck door to the pilot area was closed after take-off and for the entire flight.    The alleged hijackers had to have opened the door to take control from the pilots.

 

After the hijackers allegedly took control of the 757, they would have had to re-programmed the flight control computer to make the airplane turn back toward Washington, DC., and this a complex task taking at least 15 minutes.  But there is no evidence on the flight data that the flight control computer was reprogrammed.  The Washington Post reported official account that American Airlines flight 77 (AA77) they became totally invisible for about nine minutes, just as the plane turned.

 

It is highly likely that the flight control computer had been programmed to make a turn-around back to Washington DC. in a radar hole (a section of the sky where the FAA radar could not see it).  The 757 made a standard rate turn.   However, we know from the lack of airplane flying skills of the alleged hijackers, that they would not know how to make such a smooth turn.  The only explanation, therefore, is a skilled pilot made this turn or the airplane turned itself.

 

The FDR also showed that the rudder pedals were not touched after the hijackers allegedly took control of the airplane. http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=21149

Pilots for 9/11 Truth used the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to call for release of the data files from the Flight Data Recorders (FDR) of the planes involved in the attack. In the case of the flight which hit the Pentagon, reportedly American Airlines flight 77 (AA77), the data was released in three forms. One was a comma separated values (CSV) file, easily read. The other file appeared to be raw data copied direct from the original file from the FDR, which needed special software, and data frame layout information, in order to reveal its contents. Also released was an animation of the flight. The CSV file showed the flight terminating (crashing) at a point far higher than the Pentagon.

The animation of the flight was apparently based on the CSV file as it also showed the flight terminating too high, but incorrectly calculated as it showed the plane travelling at the wrong track angle. The NTSB said that the animation was not used for any official purpose.

 

Eventually the raw file was decoded and again it appeared to show the flight finished too high and descending too steeply to have caused the type of damage observed at the Pentagon.

Response to Rob Balsamo

 

On 9/11 the speed recorded on the FAA ATC’s radar scope showed a jet making a steep dive like only a fighter jet could do.  If this was a real radar return from a Boeing 757 doing this diving maneuver, the wings of the 757 would have been torn/ripped off of due to friction wings against the (aka reaching a critical speed to tear the wings off as had been tested by Boeings).  Why?  Because air gets thicker (denser) as the jet flies closer to sea level.   Air at Sea level is so thick that a 757 cannot fly faster than some 360 mph (370 knots).

 

Cimino also proved the radar blips that appeared on the FAA air traffic controller’s radar screen indicating American Airlines flight AA77 (Pentagon) were faked.   He observed that the digital staggering of radar sweeps is the result of playback of recorded digital video recording.  When he plotted the radar sweep times, he saw a 24.7 second delay in the NEADs feed, as well as the digital staggering of the radars in the NEADs as well as the air defense sector that day.   From this it can be proved that someone recorded the data on the flight data recorder, two years earlier.  Radar is never delayed 24.7 seconds before 911, nor has it been since then.

 

The radar view of what the air traffic controller (ATC) are viewing on their radar screen, it stopped showing any ground clutter made by tall building near the Pentagon 24 to 36 seconds after the impact time.  This is very suspicious. Radars do not stop showing ground clutter, signals made by tall buildings near the Pentagon. Therefore, someone must have cut out the radar recording tape after the 757 arrived near the Pentagon, and added a radar signal from some other location.  This other location did not have tall buildings and so no ground clutter.

 

  1. Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) data showed flight UA175 still airborne after it allegedly hit the South Tower (the second flying into a Tower), that is, it was not in the vicinity of New York City when a commercial sized 767 airplane impacted the tower.

 

ACARS is a device used to send messages to and from an aircraft, similar to a text message sent from your cell phone.  The ACARS network has remote ground stations installed around the world to route messages from ATC, the airline, etc, to the aircraft, the ACARS system can confirm if the sent ‘text’ messages have been received or not without requiring any crew input to manually acknowledge the message was received.

 

ACARS Messages have been provided through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) which demonstrates the aircraft received messages through ground stations located in Harrisburg, PA, and then later routed through a ground station in Pittsburgh, 20 minutes after the UA175 767 aircraft allegedly impacted the South Tower. http://pilotsfor911truth.org/ACARS-CONFIRMED-911-AIRCRAFT-AIRBORNE-LONG-AFTER-CRASH.html

 

  1.  911 Commissioners Tom Kean and Lee Hamilton said that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) did not tell the truth to the Commission in order to mislead them, and 9/11 Commission former US Senators Bob Kerrey and Max Cleland called the Commission’s investigation a cover up.   

 

Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton, chair and vice chair wrote an op-ed piece in the NY Times stating the committee was stonewalled by the CIA and the investigation was obstructed government official failed to fully inform a lawfully constituted body. (NY Times, Jan. 2008)

 

Commissioner Max Cleland stated his displeasure with the committee making deals in regards to     the documents they could view. He also stated the Bush administration attempted to slow walk the commission into irrelevancy. (Salon, Nov. 2003)

 

Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton said that the CIA “obstructed our investigation.”  They also said that the 9/11 Commissioners knew that military officials (NORAD) were misrepresented the facts to the Commission, and the Commission considered recommending criminal charges for such false statements, yet didn’t bother to tell the American people.

 

The commission asked for “all documents related to the FAA’s tracking of hijacked airliners on 9/11,” including communications with the NORAD, that dispatched fighter jets in response to the attacks.

 

Thomas Kean said. “We were told that documents didn’t exist and that we had everything we asked for.  We discovered through our own investigation that the FAA had not turned over dozens of boxes of material, including “various (audio) tapes, statements, interview reports and agency self-assessments. I would rather feel that it was a lack of priority or knowledge of what they had, and not that they intentionally tried to hide things from us. But we don’t know for sure.”

 

Lee Hamilton says “I don’t believe for a minute we got everything right”,  the Commission was set up to fail, that people should keep asking questions about 9/11, that the 9/11 debate should continue, and that the 9/11 Commission report was only “the first draft” of history.

 

Commissioner Bob Kerrey said that “There are ample reasons to suspect that there may be some alternative to what we outlined in our version . . . We didn’t have access . . . .”

 

Commissioner Timothy Roemer said “We were extremely frustrated with the false statements we were getting.  We were not sure of the intent, whether it was to deceive the commission or merely part of the fumbling bureaucracy.” (CNN, Aug. 2006)

 

9/11 Commissioner and former Secretary of the Navy John Lehman on strongly implies NBC Nightly news that the Commission was purposely set up so that every single person involved would have a conflict of interest which would prevent them from conducting an honest investigation.

http://georgewashington.blogspot.com/2008/02/lehman-commission-purposely-set-up-so.html

 

Investigators for the 9/11 Commission drafted a memo in April 2004 stating they believed that the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) lied to 9/11 commission investigators by indicating the military’s readiness was sufficient on 9/11. Commission staffer John Azzerello is reported to have given the memo to Commission Executive Director Philip Zelikow, a leading who then “buried it.”

 

Commission investigators wanted a strongly worded criminal referral on NORAD and FAA perjury sent to the Justice Department.  9/11 Commissioner Thomas H. Kean said, “We to this day don’t know why NORAD [the North American Aerospace Command] told us what they told us,” The [Norad air defense] tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years.

http://www.infowars.com/911-commission-counsel-government-agreed-to-lie-about-911/

 

The Senior Counsel (investigator) to the 9/11 Commission, John Farmer, said “I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described …. The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years…. This is not spin. This is not true.”

 

An internal 9/11 Commission memo from October 2003 stating that the Department of Defense has not provided the commission with the relevant documents it asked for regarding Otis Air Force Base.  Two Commission staffers visited the base and found that several materials not produced by the Defense Department existed.

http://hcgroups.wordpress.com/2009/04/12/911-commission-documents-related-to-day-of-attacks/

 

The commission asked for “all documents related to the FAA’s tracking of hijacked airliners on 9/11,” including communications with the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), that dispatched fighter jets in response to the attacks.  One of the key NEADS tapes was lost: “The reason for the malfunction is disputed. NEADS claims that the officer, who was reviewing the tape) accidentally reformatted one of the tapes. The officer denies that this occurred.”

 

A responding memo from Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence Stephen Cambone to 9/11 Commission Executive Director Philip Zelikow saying the Pentagon has already produced almost everything it has, although some materials have been destroyed.  Officials said at it turned out, some of the documents center on whether air defenses were activated quickly enough.

 

Former 9/11 Commissioners Tim Roemer and John Lehman say they also were never briefed about Able Danger before the 9/11 Commission’s Final Report was published.   This information was not mentioned anywhere in the commission’s final report.  Vice Chairman Lee Hamilton and former spokesmen for the Commission, Alvin S. Felzenberg, also stated that the 9/11 staff investigators had not made this information available to them.

Alvin S. Felzenberg acknowledged that a uniformed officer briefed two of the commission’s staff members about the Able Danger unit in early July 2004 (July 12th).  He also admits that the officer said the program had identified Mohamed Atta and two other terrorists as part of an al-Qaeda cell in Brooklyn, NY City. This information was not mentioned anywhere in the 9/11 Commission’s final report.

 

 

The 9/11 Commission first denied having been brief about Able Danger, and then when that statement was proven false, they acknowledged being briefed on both Able Danger and that this operation had identified Mohammed Atta thirteen separate times.

 

On or about March 24, 2004, US Senator Bob Graham (D-FL) had co-chaired the 9/11 Congressional Inquiry said when he saw the news report about the FBI closing down their investigation, he contacts the FBI and was told the report is not correct and that the investigation into the two men is still ongoing.  A month later, FBI Director Robert Mueller tells Graham that the report was correct, and the case has been closed.  Graham asks Mueller to speak to the two FBI agents who reached this conclusion and find out why they reached it.   He asks that he should be allowed the same access to them that the Associated Press had been given.   Both Mueller and Attorney General John Ashcroft refused to give clearance for the agents to speak to Senator Graham.   Graham then writes a letter with Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA), again asking for clarification and the right to meet with the agents.  Their request is denied.

 

Graham concludes that it “seems that (this is something) neither the FBI nor the Bush administration wants the American people to find out about.” (GRAHAM AND NUSSBAUM, 2004, PP. 224-227)

  1. LTC Anthony Shaffer claimed that he alerted the FBI in September 2000 and three meetings with the FBI were set up, but Army lawyers blocked by military lawyers.  He tried to tell the FBI that Able Danger had identified two of the three cells responsible for 9/11 attacks before the attacks occurred.  Navy Captain Scott Phillport claimed that Able Danger was “discouraged from looking further into Atta.”  He and three other people confirmed LTC Shaffer’s statements.   A civilian contractor James D. Smith stated that Able Dangers analyzed data from 20 to 30 individuals and confirmed that Able Danger had identified Atta.

 

Lt Colonel Shaffer said, “We identified lead 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi, who flew UA 175 into the South Tower of the Trade Center, and two of the muscle hijackers aboard AA 77, which hit the Pentagon.” That linkage was made months before any of the other Big Five intelligence agencies would trip to their presence.  Coming as it did in early 2000, the identification of Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi was a crucial find for the Special Operations Command (SOCOM) operation.

 

Able Danger was a data mining operation commenced in December, 1999 on the orders of Gen. Hugh Shelton, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and Gen. Pete Schoomaker, head of the SOCOM. The operation’s data-mining center was located at the Land Information Warfare Activity (LIWA) at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. Fort Belvoir housed the Information Dominance Center—a building full of US Army intelligence “geeks.”

 

“The lead Lihua International Inc (LIWA) analyst running the data mine was Dr. Eileen Priesser, a double Ph.D. The operations officer was US Navy captain Scott Phillpott. Army Major Eric Kleinsmith was LIWA’s intelligence chief. J.D. Smith and Jacob L. Boesen, working as a contract analysts from Orion Scientific, designed many of the link charts in which the “deep data points” connecting the key al Qaeda players were represented graphically.

 

LTC Shaffer said, (If )“you would ask them, for example, to look at Khalid Shaikh Mohammed (KSM) and these search engines would scour the internet 24/7 looking at any number of open-source databases, from credit reporting agencies to court records, (listening to domestic calls without even easily obtainable (and retroactive) warrants, tracing money via the SWIFT bank transfer system in contravention of the laws in Europe), and news stories to Lloyd’s of London insurance records. You name it. Once a known associate of KSM was found,” their names were added to the search engines. The Army intelligence analyst began an initial harvest in December 1999.  Within months, Operation Able Danger had uncovered some astonishing intelligence.

LTC Shaffer said, “We found active an al Qaeda cell in the US linked to radical Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman. That was most frightening (was) that as late as early 2000 we detected that kind of al Qaeda presence here (in the United States). Examining Sheikh Rahman’s Brooklyn cell, which operated out of Ali Mohamed’s old stomping grounds, the al Farooq mosque in Brooklyn,New York City, the LIWA analysts made another alarming discovery. We identified lead (alleged) 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta, (and) Marwan al-Shehhi.” That linkage was made months before any of the other Big Five intelligence agencies would trip to their presence.

Most of the blame for failure to track the two Saudis was leveled at the CIA.  New Yorker writer Lawrence Wright wrote in his 9/11 book, The Looming Tower, that the CIA’s hoarding of intelligence on Al Midhar, Al Hazmi, and other key al Qaeda operatives may have prevented the US from stopping the September 11 incident.  The failure to share intelligence about the Al-Midhar and Al-Hazmi was widely blamed on “stove piping” or not share it with the rest of the US intelligence community.

 

On November 17, 2006 author Peter Lance wrote in The Huffington Post this article entitled Al Qaeda and The Mob: How the FBI Blew It on 9/11.  It appears to me that he is deliberately or unintentionally shifting the blame for 9/11 and adding to the false official story that Al Qaeda did 9/11. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/peter-lance/al-qaeda-and-the-mob-how-_b_34336.html

 

We know from the censored 28 pages of the 9/11 and other sources that the FBI had a confidential informant, who rented an apartment to Al Midhar and Al Hazmi so arguing that intelligence was the cause of the failure to stop the mass murder on 9/11, is not the whole truth.

 

In May and June 2000, the General Counsel of the Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) Tony Gentry, ordered Major Erik Kleinsmith to delete 2.5 terabytes of Able Danger’s data.

 

On June 27, 2005, Republican US Congressman Curt Weldon, the Vice Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and Homeland Security Committee made a speech on the House floor and he revealed the existence of a secret Pentagon counter-terrorism operation codenamed Able Danger, which he claimed had identified Mohammed Atta, alleged ringleader of the 9/11 attacks, as early as 1999. He also said that he had had in his possession of a chart linking the associations between various people connected to Al Qaeda, and containing Mohammad Atta’s photograph and name  He states that he had turned it over to deputy national security adviser Stephen Hadley at a meeting in the White House on September 25, 2001. Both Hadley and another Republican congressman, Dan Burton of Indiana, have confirmed the meeting with Weldon on that date and the handover of the link chart. The chart itself has disappeared, according to the White House. Weldon’s revelations were confirmed by five military officers or Pentagon contractors formerly involved in Able Danger.  It has been widely reported in Europe that Atta was known to US intelligence agencies and was actually under FBI surveillance in Germany in 1999.

 

Rep. Weldon said that Able Danger had also identified three other future 9/11 hijackers as Al Qaeda loyalists: Marwan Al-Shehhi, Khalid Al Midhar and Nawaf Alhazmi.   Rep. Weldon expressed dissatisfaction with statements made by various members of the 9/11 Commission.  He stated his desire to seek information to explain why the Department of Defense refused to pass the information uncovered by Able Dangers to the FBI.

 

McClatchy Newspapers October 14, 2006 that the FBI had recommended a Justice Department investigation into Congressman Weldon’s actions. But this raises the following question: who leaked the information to McClatchy that ended up causing Rep. Weldon losing re-election in November 2006.

 

The most plausible explanation is that the existence of the investigation was leaked by government sources in the know, in order to provide the necessary pretext for a pre-election raid.  The FBI raid on Weldon’s daughter’s home and office has had an immediate and probably decisive effect on the current congressional campaign. Weldon suffered a sharp drop in the polls.

 

On October 16, 2006, FBI agents raided the home of Weldon’s daughter as well as five other locations. According to an article in the October 17, 2006, edition of The New York Times, “investigators are trying to determine whether Rep. Weldon misused his official position to help his daughter’s company obtain lobbying contracts from foreign clients and helped steer contracts to favored firms.”

 

It is a longstanding practice of the FBI to refrain from engaging in any dramatic action related to political corruption in the weeks immediately preceding an election, out of concern that this would be regarded as an effort to interfere with the electoral process.  An attorney for Weldon questioned the timing of the leak and subsequent raid, speaking to the Los Angeles Times. “I think it is very suspicious that 2 1/2 years after the Los Angeles Times broke the story, that the FBI is now getting around to looking at it three weeks before the election,” said William B. Canfield. Weldon himself, in an interview with the University of Pennsylvania student newspaper, the Daily Pennsylvanian, described the timing of the accusations as a “gross abuse of the American electoral process.”  Weldon was never charged in the incident, however the USA Today claimed that the incident had cost him his re-election and $30,000 in legal fees.

 

I want to point out the behavior of Vice President Cheney when he blew the cover of CIA officer Valerie Plame-Wilson because he was angry with her husband’s disclosure about uranium yellow cake, which was not sold to Iraq.  I think Able Danger was an illegal continuation of the Total Information Awareness by the Bush administration.

 

Here is the historic perspective. In September 2003, the US Congress cut off funding for Total Information Awareness (TIA) and the Information Awareness Office with the Senate voting unanimously against it because of criticism that it was unconstitutional.

 

Although the program was formally suspended, its data mining software was later adopted by other government agencies, with only superficial changes being made. The core architecture of TIA continued development under the codename “Basketball.” According to a 2012 New York Times article, the legacy of Total Information Awareness is quietly thriving at the National Security Agency (NSA).

TIA research included or planned to include the participation of nine government entities: INSCOM, NSA, DIA, CIA, CIFA, STRATCOM, SOCOM, JFCOM, JWAC. These agencies were to be able to access TIA’s programs through a series of dedicated nodes.

 

John Poindexter resigned from office in August 2003.  Vice President Dick Cheney recommended retired Admiral Poindexter to head a separate anti-terrorist office and serve under US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Total_Information_Awareness

 

  1.   The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions

 

Dr. David Ray Griffin lists included over 100 lies or omissions in the official 9/11 Commission report. This article is an excellent summary/companion to Dr. Griffin’s newest book, The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions. He concludes his story with the comment:  Why would the minds in charge of this final report engage in such deception if they were not trying to cover up very high crimes?”

http://www.septembereleventh.org/newsarchive/2005-05-22-571pglie.php

 

Here is a summary of a few of his points.

 

  1. The omission of the fact that the fires in the Twin Towers were not very big, very hot, or very

long-lasting compared with fires in several steel-frame buildings that did not collapse.

2. The omission of the fact that, given the hypothesis that the collapses were caused by fire, the South Tower (which had smaller fires) which was struck later than the North Tower, should not have collapsed first.

 

  1. The omission of the fact that WTC 7 also collapsed.

 

  1. The omission of the fact that the collapse of the Twin Towers (like that of Building 7) exemplified at least 10 features suggestive of controlled demolition.

 

  1. The omission of the fact that because Building 7 had been evacuated before it collapsed. therefore, WTC 7 wreckage was the first to be removed and the official reason for the rapid removal of the steel was that some people might still be alive in the rubble under the steel—made no sense in this case.

 

  1.   The omission of any mention of the FBI agents who reportedly claimed to have known the targets and dates of the attacks well in advance.

 

  1. The omission of reports that both Mayor Willie Brown and some Pentagon officials received warnings not to fly any airplanes on 9/11.

 

 

  1. The omission of the fact that there are photos showing that the west wing’s façade of the Pentagon did not collapse until 30 minutes after the strike and also that the entrance hole appears too small for a Boeing 757 to have entered.

 

  1. The omission of the fact that pictures from various security cameras—including the camera at the gas station across from the Pentagon, the film from which was reportedly confiscated by (people calming to be) FBI within minutes after the strike—could presumably answer the question of what really hit the Pentagon.   Why haven’t these video tapes been released to the public?

 

  1. The omission of Coleen Rowley’s claim that some officials at FBI headquarters did see the memo from Phoenix agent Kenneth Williams.

 

  1. The omission of Chicago FBI agent Robert Wright’s charge that FBI headquarters closed his case on the terrorist cell, then used intimidation to prevent him from publishing a book reporting his experiences.

 

  1. The omission of the 3.5 hours of testimony to the Commission by former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds–testimony that, according to her later public letter to Chairman Kean, revealed serious 9/11-related cover-ups by officials at FBI headquarters.

 

  1. The omission of evidence that ISI chief Ahmad had ordered $100,000 to be sent to Mohamed Atta prior to 9/11.   And the omission of the report that the Bush administration pressured Pakistan to dismiss Ahmad as ISI chief after the appearance of the story that he had ordered ISI money sent to Mohamed Atta.

 

  1. The claim (lie) that in those days there were only two air force bases in NORAD’s Northeast sector that kept fighters on alert and that, in particular, there were no fighters on alert at either McGuire or Andrews.

 

  1. The omission of evidence that Andrews Air Force Base did keep several fighters on alert at all times.

 

  1.  The claim (lie) that the Otis AFB fighters were not airborne until seven minutes after they received the scramble order because they did not know where to go.

 

  1. The omission of evidence that there were at least six bases with fighters on alert in the northeastern part of the United States.

 

  1. The omission of any explanation of (a) why NORAD’s earlier report, according to which the FAA had notified the military about the hijacking of Flight 175 at 8:43, was now to be considered false and (b) how this report, if it was false, was published and then left uncorrected for almost three years.

 

  1. The failure to mention that the report that a large jet crashed in Kentucky, at about the time Flight AA 77 disappeared from FAA radar, was taken seriously enough by the heads of the FAA and the FBI’s counterterrorism unit to be relayed to the White House.  A large jet did not crash in Kentucky.

 

  1. The failure to explain, if NORAD’s earlier report that it was notified about Flight 77 at 9:24 was “incorrect,” how this erroneous report could have arisen, i.e., whether NORAD officials had been lying or simply confused for almost three years.

 

  1. The lie that the Langley AFB fighter jets, which NORAD had previously said were scrambled to intercept Flight 77, were actually scrambled in response to an erroneous report from an (unidentified) FAA controller at 9:21 that Flight 11 was still up and was headed towards Washington.

 

  1. The omission of Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta’s testimony, given to the Commission itself, that Vice-President Cheney and others in the underground shelter were aware by 9:26 AM that an aircraft was approaching the Pentagon.

 

  1. The lie that the fighter jets from Langley, which were allegedly scrambled to protect Washington from  Flight 11, approaching the Pentagon, were nowhere near Washington because they were sent out to sea, over the Atlantic Ocean.

 

  1. The lie that the military was not notified by the FAA about Flight 93’s hijacking until after it crashed.

 

  1. The lie that Vice President Cheney did not give the shoot-down authorization until after 10:10 (several minutes after Flight 93 had crashed) and that this authorization was not transmitted to the US military until 10:31 AM.

 

  1. The omission of testimony including that of Norman Mineta to the Commission itself, that Cheney was in the PEOC before 9:20 AM.

 

  1. The lie that Cheney did not reach the underground shelter (the PEOC) [Presidential Emergency Operations Center] until 9:58 AM.

 

  1. The omission of reports that Colonel Marr ordered a shoot-down of Flight 93 and that General Winfield indicated that he and others at the NMCC had expected a fighter jet to reach Flight 93 .

 

  1. The omission of all the evidence indicating that Flight 93 was shot down by a military plane.

 

  1. The failure to probe the issue of how the war games scheduled for that day were related to the military’s failure to intercept the hijacked airliners.
  2. The omission of the report that Osama bin Laden, who already was America’s “most wanted” criminal, was treated in July 2001 by an American doctor in the American Hospital in Dubai and visited by the local CIA agent.

 

  1. The omission of reports of a visit to Osama bin Laden at the hospital in Dubai by the head of Saudi intelligence.

 

  1. The failure to point out that the White House first sought to prevent the creation of a 9/11 Commission, then placed many obstacles in its path, including giving it extremely meager funding.   http://www.septembereleventh.org/newsarchive/2005-05-22-571pglie.php

 

  1.  Too Many Air Force War Games on 9/11

 

Vigilant Guardian, Vigilant Warrior, Northern Guardian, Northern Vigilance, and Tripod II were on in progress on 9/11.   All, except for Northern Vigilance and Tripod II had to do with hijacked airliners inside the continental United States, specifically within the northeast air defense sector where all four 9/11 hijackings occurred.

 

Now before I get into describing these exercises and how the US Air Force did not intercept, I ask you this. Why would the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff General Richard B. Myers, USAF, allow all the counter hijack exercises to take place given all the pre-9/11 warnings of a very high threat from a real of a terrorist attack.

 

And additionally, allow the Air Force to leave a yawning gap in the air defense in the mid-section of the East Coast—a gap with New York City at the center.  This was done in the years prior to 9/11 because the Pentagon assumed the Soviet Threat no longer posted a great threat to the US.  How would terrorist know about this weakness?

 

In May of 2001, by Presidential order, Vice President Dick Cheney was put in direct command and control of all war-game and field exercise training and scheduling through several agencies, especially FEMA.  This also extended to all of the conflicting and overlapping NORAD drills on 9/11.  Now this would give Cheney a real good excuse for not ordering the shoot down of flight AA 77 that hit the Pentagon using any secret anti-aircraft missiles located around the Pentagon.(Source: A Speech by Michael C. Ruppert to the Commonwealth Club, San Francisco, August 31, 2004 and his book, Crossing the Rubicon.  http://www.globalpublicmedia.com/transcripts/159)

 

For example, on March 2001 the Italian intelligence warns of an al-Qaeda plot in the United States involving a massive strike involving aircraft based on their wiretap of al-Qaeda cell in Milan.

 

“Something really spectacular is going to happen here, and it’s going to happen soon,” the officials were told by the government’s top counterterrorism official, Richard Clarke.  “Clarke considered the threat sufficiently important to direct every counterintelligence office to cancel vacations and get ready for immediate action, the Post reported.”  http://makethemaccountable.com/whatwhen/Q01_WhySomeWarned.htm

 

Someone told a number of public officials not to fly into New York on the morning of 9/11.  The mayor of San Francisco Willie Brown was set to fly into New York on the morning of September 11th. However, he got a telephone call late on September 10th advising against flying due to a security threat.  Pacifica Radio reported that Condoleeza Rice was the source of the call to Brown.  CBS News reported that Attorney General Ashcroft was traveling exclusively by leased jet aircraft instead of commercial airlines because of threat assessment by the FBI, and now travels only by private jet.  Newsweek learned that the state of alert had been high two weeks prior to September 11th, and a particularly urgent warning may have been received the night before the attacks, causing some top Pentagon brass to cancel a trip. http://www.prisonplanet.com/911/warned.htm

http://propagandamatrix.com/ashcroft_flying_high.html

 

The Bush administration, CIA and FBI received multiple prior warnings from foreign governments and intelligence services, including France, Germany, the UK, Israel, Jordan, Afghanistan, Egypt, Morocco and Russia. The warnings varied in their level of detail, but all stated that they believed an attack inside the United States was imminent. British Member of Parliament Michael Meacher cites these warnings, suggesting that some of them must have been deliberately ignored.  Some of these warnings include the following: on July 5, 2001, according to a recent Washington Post article, the White House called together officials from a dozen federal agencies to give them a warning.

 

“‘Something really spectacular is going to happen here, and it’s going to happen soon,” the officials were told by the government’s top counterterrorism official, Richard Clarke. “Clarke considered the threat sufficiently important to direct every counterintelligence office to cancel vacations and get ready for immediate action, the Post reported.”  http://makethemaccountable.com/whatwhen/Q01_WhySomeWarned.htm

 

Starting August 15, 2001, the following US military bases near Washington, DC; Fort Hamilton, NY, Fort Meade, MD, Fort Belvoir, VA Fort Ritchie, MD, Fort Myer, VA and Fort McNair, VA, limited public access to bases as part of nationwide security clampdown because of terrorist threat.

 

FBI Director Louis Freeh told the 9/11 Commission that in 2000 and 2001, the subject of “planes as weapons” from 1993 to June 2001 was always considered in the planning of National Special Security Events (NSSE’s), in which the FBI and FEMA participated, and that “resources were actually designated to deal with that particular threat.” He confirmed that “the use of airplanes, either packed with explosives or otherwise, in suicide missions” was “part of the planning” for NSSE’s.

 

On September 11, 2001, the US North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) was conducting a semi-annual Air Force exercise, code named, Northern Guardian. Parts of this exercise may have included two more called Northern Vigilance and Northern Denial.   Air Force fighter jets had been moved to Forward Operating Locations (FOLS) in Alaska and Northern Canada as the US intelligence monitored a Russian air force exercise in the Russian arctic and North Pacific Ocean.  This is routinely done every year because a Russian exercise is a good way to hid a surprise attack.  This was done in conjunction with exercise, Global Guardian.

 

In late August to early December 2001, fighter jets from Langley Air Force Base (Virginia) deployed to Keflavik AFB, Iceland, allegedly to counter Russian strategic bombers. [BERGEN RECORD, 12/5/2003]

 

On September 11, most of the F-15s of the 71st Fighter Squadron Stationed at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia, were also a long way from the nation’s capital due to their participation in the Red Flag exercise held in Nevada between late August and September 17, 2001.  Langley is some 500 miles from New York City and 150 miles from the Pentagon.

 

At the time of the first jet, AA11 hit the Twin Tower three F-16s were assigned to Andrews Air Force Base, 10 miles from Washington. They flew an air-to-ground training mission in North Carolina, 207 miles away from their base.   Andrews AFB was not a NORAD base and did not have an on-alert status as their mission.  It had a mission to be combat ready, but that does not mean on-alert status.   Secret Service told the 9/11 Commission that they had repeatedly before 9/11 requested alert aircraft to protect the Capitol, particularly at Andrews Air Force Base, and other air defense, (but) that this was never acted on by the Pentagon.

 

Global Guardian is an annual command-level exercise organized by United States Strategic Command (STRATCOM). in cooperation with Space Command and NORAD. US Space Command’s part of this was this exercise is called Apollo Guardian.  Primary purpose of these is to test and validate nuclear command and control and execution procedures. This was a joint US-Canada exercise, and was designed to test the coordination of the two defense establishments.  Three Boeing 747, E-4Bs National Emergency Airborne Operations Command Post, (NEACP) (nicked named Looking Glass) were participating this Global Guardian, command, communication, and control exercises.  The 2001 exercise started the week before September 11th under the command of Admiral Richard Mies, commander-in-chief of  Strategic Command.

 

An E-4B US Air Force 747 called the National Emergency Airborne Command Post (NEACP), pronounced “knee-cap,” took off minutes after the explosion at the Pentagon Andrews Air Force Base some four to ten miles south and was photograph in the air over the Capital.  But the aircraft is more commonly known as the “doomsday plane,” because its premier function is to serve as a flying command, control and communications (C3) center in the event of a national emergency or nuclear war. When the president travels on Air Force One, an E-4B usually follows behind the presidential entourage. Unlike Air Force One, however, the E-4B can be refueled in midair and so has considerably greater range. For this reason, when the president goes abroad on long trips he occasionally flies on an E-4B to save travel time.  See photo at:  http://www.rense.com/general76/missing.htm

 

NORAD was thus fully staffed and alert, and senior officers are manning stations throughout the US. The entire chain of command is in place and ready when the first reported real-world hijacking.

 

Vigilant Guardian was a countrywide war game called “transition to war” exercise was taking place between August 20th and September 13th, 2001.  Between September 10th and 13th it was planned to run 24 hours a day.  Right on the morning of 9/11 the scenario contained a hijacking.  That´s why the first phone call about a real hijacking made officers in the air defense headquarter wonder.  One even said:  “Somebody started the exercise early.  The hijack is not supposed to be for another hour.” It appears that the exercise somehow melted with reality.   And additionally, the role of “Vigilant Guardian” was deeper.  For it allowed access to the radar data the air defense received.

 

According to the tape recordings of the air defense there were virtual inserts on the screens as long as 9.30 AM, meaning no one stopped the exercise while hijackings were in progress.

 

In Air War Over America it is documented that General Arnold of NORAD said , “we didn’t pull out of  Vigilant Guardian until reports of flight (UA) 93 being hijacked were coming in. That was at 9:16 AM, a total of 54 minutes after it was known that flight (AA)11 was a hijacking.  The FAA reported flight 11 was heading to Washington D.C. at that time when in fact it had already struck the World Trade Center.  The 9/11 Commission’s report stated they were “unable to locate the source of the mistaken FAA information.”
(Source:  Air War Over America: Sept. 11 Alters Face Of Air Defense Mission by Leslie Filson)

 

NORAD said “these exercise were artificial simulations that provided us the opportunity to test

and validate our process and rules of engagement with the appropriate coordination between NORAD’s command headquarters, its subordinate regions and sectors and National Command authorities in Canada and the United States

 

As part of the Air Force war games, virtual radar signals were displayed on the screens of the operators in air defense headquarters.  These signals did not represent real planes in the sky, but were only digital points, so called “inserts”, to make the war game more realistic.  In plain words, the radar data was intentionally manipulated.  Therefore, assuming 9/11 might have been an inside job, the exercise could have been a useful cover for blurring the real radar picture and weakening the air defense very effectively.

 

According to the tape recordings of the air defense there were virtual inserts on the screens as

long as 9.30 a.m., meaning almost an hour after the first call to the military.  Actually it seems as if no one really stopped the exercise as long as the hijackings were in progress.  According to a clear record some of these exercises involved commercial airline hijackings.  In some cases false blips were deliberately inserted onto FAA and military radar screens and they were present during (at least) the first Twin Towers attacks.

 

Part of an Air Force exercise included placing “false blips” (radar injects indicating virtual planes) on FAA radar screens.  (Source:  Crossing the Rubicon by Michael Ruppert

http://www.opednews.com/articles/Anthrax-Links-to-9-11-by-Barbara-Honegger-080925-678.html)

 

In a footnote to the 9/11 Commission report, Vigilant Guardian was wrongly described as Northern Guardian.  Was this done to hid from the 9/11 Commissioners the fact that hijack exercise was ongoing during the real jets being used as weapons?  Northern Guardian was an exercise to train to intercept Russian bombers heading for the US via the North Pole.

http://911review.com/means/wargames.html

 

Reference this false radar blips story, I want to point out that Richard Clarke has recently discussed on C-Span that one possible scenario of a cyber warfare attack, for example, could be such using a cyber warfare attack putting false radar returns on the Syrian Air Defense radars in conjunction with an actual Israeli Air Force bombing attack via Turkey, on the Syrian nuclear reactor, a suspected of being a North Korean–designed nuclear weapons plant.  And in so doing, not one Syrian anti-aircraft missile was fired at the attacking Israeli jet.

(http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/Books/cyber-war-richard-clarke/story?id=10414617&page=2)

Another part of these hijack scenarios exercises.  There was also an Air Force exercise called Vigilant Warrior and it was being run by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Richard B. Myers and NORAD.   The word “Warrior” means the exercise was approved and controlled by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General at the National Military Command Center (NMCC).  He had to be the General who stopped this exercise when commercial airliner was out of radio contact with the air traffic controllers, so FAA required Air Force to scramble, intercept and evaluate the situation to rule out a hijacking.

 

This exercise was a “live fly” exercise.  It involved at least one real commercial or military aircraft being flown to simulate a hijack emergency that actually happened on 9/11, commercial jets.  Major Don Arias of NORAD confirmed this information.

 

A close reading of key news stories published in the Spring of 2004 revealed for the first time that some of these drills were “live-fly” exercises where actual aircraft, were simulating the behavior of hijacked airliners in real life.  All of this as the real attacks began.  The fact of these exercises had never been systematically and thoroughly explored in the mainstream press.

 

Mike Ruppert says, he has an on-the-record statement from someone in NORAD that on the day of 9/11 The Joint Chiefs of Staff (Richard B. Myers) and NORAD were conducting a

joint, live-fly, hijack Field Training Exercise (FTX) which involved at least one (and almost certainly many more) aircraft under US control that was posing as a hijacked airliner”.

(June 5, 2004, editor of FTW www.fromthewilderness.com

http://inn.globalfreepress.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=387)

 

The goal of this Live Fly exercise was to test communications between FAA air traffic controllers, NEADS, to test how long it would take to get jets into the sky when the situation was confused by a second simulated hijacked airplane headed to the US from the Atlantic Ocean, and to test communication in order to get permission from the National Command Authority (Bush, Rumsfeld or Cheney) to shoot them down.

 

Richard Clark wrote in his book that during these kinds of exercises the Administration tasks a White House official to receive the phone call to play the role of what would be the granting of a shoot-down-approval, Simulating and testing telephone communications to the White House situation room. Who had been tasked to play playing that role at the White House?  Of course, on seeing the UA 175 hit the south tower on TV, that role player would not want to continuing in that role. However, maybe interviewing that person would clear up a lot of unanswered questions.  (Source, Against All Enemies, by Richard Clark, 2004, pp 4-5).

Two AWACS aircraft from Tinker AFB, Oklahoma were sent over Washington DC and Florida by USAF General Larry Arnold.  Gen. Arnold later revealed that these AWCS were told “to go into an exercise scenario simulating an attack on the United States. The AWACS crew initially thought we were going into one of those simulations.”

 

When AWCS pilot, 1st Lt. Anthony Kuczynski, hears of the first World Trade Center crash, he mistakenly believes he is involved in a planned military simulation. He says, “We sometimes do scenarios where we’re protecting the United States from bombers coming in from unknown areas.”

NORAD reported eleven aircraft off course or out of communication and they were thinking about putting a hold on all takeoffs and landing in New York and Washington DC.

Richard Clarke asks acting Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Richard Myers, “I assume NORAD has scrambled fighters and AWACS. How many? Where?”

 

Myers, who is at the Pentagon, replies, “Not a pretty picture, Dick. We are in the middle of Vigilant Warrior, a NORAD exercise, but…

 

Clarke asks, “Okay, how long to CAP [combat air patrol] over DC?” Myers replies, “Fast as we can. Fifteen minutes?” [CLARKE, 2004, PP. 5]

 

However, this account—or at least the time Clarke alleges the conversation occurs—is contradicted by Myers himself and Senator Max Cleland (D-GA). Myers claims he has been at a meeting on Capitol Hill with Cleland since about 9:00 a.m., and does not arrive back at the Pentagon until after it is hit, which is at 9:37 a.m. [AMERICAN FORCES PRESS SERVICE, 10/23/2001; MSNBC, 9/11/2002; CNN, 4/15/2003; AMERICAN FORCES PRESS SERVICE, 9/8/2006]

 

Cleland confirms the existence of this meeting, and claims that Myers is with him until around the time of the Pentagon attack. [CNN, 11/20/2001; ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION, 6/16/2003]

 

There are, though, some inconsistencies in Myers and Cleland’s accounts of this period NORAD also has confirmed it was running two mock drills on Sept. 11th at various radar sites and command centers in the United States and Canada, including Air Force bases in upstate New York, Florida, Washington, and Alaska. http://www.propagandamatrix.com/051203atlanticcityfighters.html

 

The air traffic controllers and NORAD personnel cannot talk about the exercises because they are classified.   What went right or wrong is classified, notwithstanding the real attacks on 9/11.

 

Who was responsible for those loops and detours Otis and Langley fighter jets?  Who gave those orders to the fighter pilots? All we know is that the tape recordings of the communication with the pilots got lost somehow.  (http://www.larsschall.com/2012/08/31/in-the-heart-of-darkness-of-911/)

 

“The Pentagon left what seems to be a yawning gap in the midsection of its air defenses on the East Coast—a gap with New York City at the center.” (BERGEN RECORD, 12/5/2003)

 

In October 1998, as a result of Pentagon cutbacks, it lost its scramble-ready status and began converting to a general-purpose F-16 mission (see May 19, 1997).  (BERGEN RECORD, 12/5/2003; (GLOBALSECURITY.ORG, 8/21/2005)

 

F-16s at Atlantic City are involved in scheduled training missions every day, and it begins usually between 8:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.  The two fighter jets are unarmed and performing practice bombing runs over a section of the Pine Barrens in New Jersey that is designated for military drills.  Who knew these F-16s would be doing training and unarmed?

 

At the time of the first jet (AA11) hit the Twin Tower, three F-16s were assigned to Andrews Air Force Base, 10 miles from Washington. They flew an air-to-ground training mission in North Carolina, 207 miles away from their base.  Andrews AFB was not a NORAD base and did not have an on-alert status as their mission.  It had a mission to be combat ready, but that does not mean on-alert status.  Secret Service told the 9/11 Commission that they had repeatedly before 9/11 requested alert aircraft to protect the Capitol, particularly at Andrews Air Force Base, and other air defense, but that this was never acted on by the Pentagon.

 

Standard operating procedures for military scramble approval was for the FAA to contact the National Military Command Center (NMCC) to request air support, then the NMCC would contact NORAD to find out about aircraft availability, then NORAD would seek final approval from Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld.  On June 1, 2001 “potentially lethal support” (aka shoot down authority – including “combat and tactical vehicles, vessels or aircraft; or ammunition”) required approved by the Secretary of Defense. Prior to the Department of Defense Directive 3025.15 (Feb. 18, 1997) allows for commanders in the field to provide assistance to save lives in an emergency situation. This also meant the Deputy Director for Operations (DDO), at the National Military Command Center (NMCC) could shoot down an incoming airplane headed for the Capital.   http://911review.com/articles/russell/standdown.html

 

NBC’s Pentagon correspondent Jim Miklaszewski said on camera: “The first time I heard the word ‘terrorism’ out of any US official came shortly after the second plane hit, and I bumped into a US military intelligence official, and I said, ‘Look … what have you got?’ And he said ‘Obviously this is clearly an act of terrorism. And then he got very close to me, and … almost silent for a few seconds, and he leaned in and he said, ‘This attack was so well coordinated that if I were you, I would stay off the E Ring (‘the outer ring of the Pentagon) for the rest of the day, because we’re next.’ ”

 

Testimony of Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta to the 9/11 Commission

 

  1. HAMILTON: (9/11 Commissioner) “I wanted to focus just a moment on the Presidential Emergency Operating Center. You were there for a good part of the day. I think you were there with the vice president. And when you had that order given, I think it was by the President, that authorized the shooting down of commercial aircraft that were suspected to be controlled by terrorists, were you there when that order was given?”

 

  1. MINETA: “No, I was not. I was made aware of it during the time that the airplane [was] coming into the Pentagon. There was a young man who had come in and said to the vice president, “The plane is 50 miles out (coming toward DC). 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.”

 

An operations supervisor John Hendershot at Washington Dulles International Airport contacted the Secret Service at the White House and informs it that an unidentified aircraft is heading toward Washington at a high rate of speed. (FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION, 9/14/2001; FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION, 9/17/2001)

;

  1. HAMILTON: “Let me see if I understand. The plane that was headed toward the Pentagon and was some miles away, there was an order to shoot that plane down?”

 

  1. MINETA: “Well, I don’t know that specifically…. But I did not know about the orders specifically other than listening to that other conversation.”

 

  1. HAMILTON: “But there very clearly was an order to shoot commercial aircraft down.”

 

  1. MINETA: ”I was not aware that that discussion had already taken place. But in listening to the conversation between the young man and the vice president, then at the time I didn’t really recognize the significance of that.”

 

At the following URL/link you can read the notes made by the Secret Service at the President’s Emergency Operations Center (PEOC) that strongly supports Norman Mineta’s public testimony before the 9/11 Commission. 9/11 Commission investigator Miles Kara was not allowed to remove the Secret Service log, therefore, he copied it long-hand.  His handwriting has been confirmed.

You will notice time on the Secret Service’s notes “9:30 – 30 nautical miles out” and “9:33 – 10 nautical miles out.” And “Theater Exercise is stopped at 10:39 AM.”  

 

The 9/11 Commission had this information but chose to bury it?

http://bluecollarrepublican.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/t8-b16-misc-work-papers-fdr-secret-service-timeline.pdf

 

Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta said, “When I got to the White House, it was being evacuated. I met briefly with Richard Clark, a National Security Council staff member, who had no new information.

 

Richard Clark wrote:  “At about 9:15, Norman Mineta arrived” and he suggested he join the Vice President.

 

Then the Secret Service escorted me down to the Presidential Emergency Operations Center, otherwise known as the PEOC. I established contact on two (telephone) lines, one with my chief of staff at the Department of Transportation, and the second with Monty Belger, the acting deputy administrator of the FAA, and Jane Garvey, both of whom were in the FAA operations center.

 

Mineta:  “Within a few minutes, American Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon.”  (~9:34 to 9:37 am)

Mineta said he was on the phone to Monte Belger, and he asked him about the situation.  Mineta said, Belger said. “’Well, we’re watching this target on the radar, but the transponder’s been turned off, so we have no identification… Uh oh, we just lost the bogey.” (Meaning the target, blip or light on the radar screen).

 

Mineta said. “’Well, where is it?’ And he (Belger) said, ‘Well, we’re not really sure.'”

 

Mineta said, Later on when I heard about the Shanksville plane going down (and someone said) ‘Do you think that they, we, shot it down ourselves?’  The Vice President was right across from me.  He said.  ‘I don’t know, let’s find out.’   Someone checked with the Pentagon and, but, that was about maybe 10:30 a.m. or so.

 

Mineta says Vice President Cheney, Mrs. Cheney and other White House staff were absolutely already there when he arrived at approximately 9:25 a.m. in the Presidential Emergency Operations Center (PEOC – the bomb shelter/bunker under the White House).  Mineta seemed shocked to learn that the 9/11 Commission Report claimed Cheney had not arrived there until shortly before 10:00,  perhaps at 9:58 AM after the Pentagon had been hit (at about 9:37 AM).

 

Richard Clarke reported that he, Cheney, and Condoleezza Rice had a brief meeting shortly after 9:03, following which the Secret Service wanted Cheney and Rice to go down to the PEOC. Rice, however, first went with Clarke to the White House’s Video Teleconferencing Center, where Clarke was to set up a video conference, which began at about 9:10. After spending a few minutes there, Rice said, according to Clarke: “You’re going to need some decisions quickly. I’m going to the PEOC to be with the Vice President. Tell us what you need.” Clarke thereby implied that Cheney was in the PEOC several minutes prior to 9:15.  (Source: Against All Enemies, by Richard Clark 2-5).

 

In an ABC News program on the first anniversary of 9/11, Cheney’s White House photographer David Bohrer reported that, shortly after 9:00, some Secret Service agents came into Cheney’s office and said, “Sir, you have to come with us.”

 

Speaking to Tim Russert on NBC’s Meet the Press, Cheney said: “After I talked to the president, . . . I went down into . . . the Presidential Emergency Operations Center. . . . When I arrived there within a short order, we had word the Pentagon’s been hit.”  http://www.jonesreport.com/articles/260607_mineta.html

Douglas Doug” F. Cochrane was the naval aide Norman Mineta was referring to military aid to the Vice President. Cochran’s testimony to the 9/11 commission has been classified. When 9/11 activist Jeff Hill followed up and phoned Cochrane, asking him what the orders were, Cochrane replied that he was “really not prepared to talk about this subject at all.(Source: blogger “jimd3100”)

At 8:30 am, on September 11, 2001, Navy Capt. Charles Leidig, Jr. temporarily took command of the National Military Command Center (NMCC) inside the Pentagon after being asked to the previous day.

 

STATEMENT OF CAPT CHARLES J. LEIDIG, JR:

 

Approximately two months prior to 11 September 2001, I assumed duties as the Deputy for Command Center Operations in the J3 Directorate of the Joint Staff.  In this role, I was responsible for the maintenance, operation, and training of watch teams for the National Military Command Center (NMCC). Further, I qualified in August 2001 to stand watch as the Deputy Director for Operations in the NMCC.

 

“On September 10, 2001, Brigadier General Winfield, US Army, asked that I stand a portion of his duty as Deputy Director for Operations, National Military Command Center (NMCC),” (on September 11th.)  I agreed and relieved Brigadier General Winfield at 0830 on 11 September 2001.”

 

Shortly after assuming duty, I received the first report of a plane’s striking the World Trade Center. Sometime after, I learned of the second plane’s collision with the World Trade Center. In response to these events, I convened a Significant Event Conference call (SIEC), which was subsequently upgraded to an Air Threat Conference (ATC).

 

During the Air Threat Conference, Brigadier General Winfield relieved me and assumed duties as Deputy Director for Operations for the National Military Command Center.   (9/11 Commission – 7/17/04)

A National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) drill (sort of like a fire-drill) simulating an incident wherein a small corporate jet a plane crashing into NRO headquarters at precisely the time of an actual crash in New York. The NRO claims as soon as the real world events “began to unfold” the drill was called off and most of the 3,000 people who work at agency headquarters were sent home, save for some essential personnel. The resulting evacuation of most NRO employees just as the “real” 9/11 was taking place, made it more difficult for the nation’s spy satellites to be used to track the hijacked planes.

(http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2002/09/18/1499851.php)

(UPI, Aug 22, 2002)

 

Why was the NRO sending home personnel during what was likely the biggest military crisis on American soil in recent history?

 

In what are called national special security events the US Secret Service is the supreme US agency for operational control with complete authority over the military and all civilian agencies.

 

  1.  United Airlines flight 93 (UA 93)  

 

There were allegedly 44 people on Flight 93.  The was a wide displacement of the plane crash debris. one explanation for which might be an explosion of some sort aboard prior to the crash. Letters – Flight 93 was carrying 7,500 pounds of mail to California – and other papers from the plane were found eight miles away from the scene of the crash. A sector of one engine weighing one ton was found 2,000 yards away (another source said 600 yards).  This was the single heaviest piece recovered from the crash, and the biggest, apart from a piece of fuselage the size of a dining-room table. The rest of the plane, consistent with an impact calculated to have occurred at 500 mph, disintegrated into pieces no bigger than two inches long. Other remains of the plane were found two miles away near a town called Indian Lake. All of these facts, widely disseminated, were confirmed by the coroner Wally Miller.  Miller, who worked closely with the FBI during the 13 days while they investigated the crash site, admits that, “In the end, he cannot prove what happened. Neither he nor anybody else knows what exactly caused Flight 93 to go down.”

 

Considering their weight, they should have plunged deep into the earth along with the rest of the airliner.  Yet they weren’t in the crater and only a one-ton segment of an engine was ever recovered, again more than a mile from the crash site. The FBI said, unconvincingly, that it had ‘bounced’ there.

Apart from a finger, a toe or a tooth here and there, all that remained of the 44 people on board, churned into the soil.  Hanging from the branches of nearby trees, were small pieces of tissue and bone. The plane was also pulverized, reduced to tiny fragments of metal.

 

Twelve eyewitnesses stated seeing another jet nearby.  They claim they saw an F-16 move closer in and fire what were probably two Sidewinder missiles, one of them catching at least one of the Boeing’s huge engines, after which the ‘plane dropped like a stone.

 

Someone else heard a loud bang and saw the airliner plummet. A Vietnam War veteran said he heard a missile, a sound he knew well.

 

It is debatable how seriously we should take these reports. But there are numerous and highly credible witness accounts of a mysterious white jet being seen after Flight 93 went down.

 

Jim Brant, owner of the Indian Lake marina where debris was found, said he heard the roar of jet engines overhead, and then saw a fireball rise into the air. He looked up and noticed a white plane circling the wreckage. “It reminded me of a fighter jet,” he said. FBI agents eventually only carted away “a large garbage bag full of debris” that they recovered from Indian Lake, according to John Fleegle. And the debris found in New Baltimore (about eight miles from the supposed crash site) seems to have been a fairly small amount of paper and other lightweight material.

 

Another resident, Tom Spinelli, said: “I saw the white plane. It was flying around all over the place like it was looking for something. I saw it before and after the crash.”  He said it had high tail wings and no markings on it.

 

John Feegle, another witness, said: “It didn’t look like a commercial plane. It had a real goofy tail on it, like a high tail. It circled around, and it was gone.”

 

Dennis Decker and his friend Rick Chaney were also close to the impact site. Decker said, “As soon as we looked up we saw a mid-sized jet flying low and fast. It appeared to make a loop or part of a circle, and then it turned fast and headed out.” They described the jet as white with no markings. Decker added: ‘“It was a jet plane, and it had to be flying real close when that 757 went down. If I was the FBI, I’d find out who was driving that plane.”

 

Along the plane’s route, people confirmed that the Boeing came in from the north-west, but they said it was not nose-diving. Instead it was flying low.

 

Bob Blair and Linda Shepley saw the plane when it dropped to 2,500 feet. Rodney Peterson and Brandon Leventry noticed it at 2,000 feet. Terry Butler saw it at about 500 feet. Eric Peterson saw the plane at maybe 300 feet.  A total of 12 witnesses are on record as having seen the white jet. One witness, Susan McElwain, complained that the FBI told her there was no plane and did not note down her account.

In the case of UA 93, a Boeing 757–222, which hit the ground at some unknown speed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the situation was reversed: the voice recorder survived but the flight data box was allegedly damaged beyond recovery.  One thing we should consider in regard with UA 93, is that in the dive toward the ground may have caused the airplane tear itself apart due to exceeding the rip-apart speed, blown up by a bomb, or was shot out of the sky.

 

Kelly Leverknight recalled seeing “a bunch of paper.”  Faye Hahn, an emergency medical technician, said she saw “papers everywhere ..pieces of mail.”  Roger Bailey recalled that “mail was scattered everywhere.” And Rick King similarly recalled, “There was mail scattered everywhere.”

 

The Independent reported that flight AA93 was carrying “7,500 pounds of mail to California” When it crashed.  According to Roger Bailey, in the days after September 11, pieces of mail found at the crash scene would be gathered and, periodically, the post office would send a mail truck to take away a load.

 

According to FBI agents John Larsen, senior leader of a Chicago-based evidence response team and  who was involved in the recovery effort, said items made of paper and other fragile materials that belonged to the alleged hijackers were found at that creator site., though no aircraft wreckage was seen there and no drop of blood.  Referring to items found at the supposed crash site of Flight 93, FBI agent A. Todd McCall said the following items were found; the passport of alleged hijacker Al Ghamdi, Al Nami’s Florida Driver’s License, his Saudi Arabian Youth Hostel Association ID card, a visa page from alleged hijacker Ziad Jarrah’s passport, and a business card of Jarrah’s uncle.  Also found were pages from the Koran, and “a checklist reminding the terrorists to blend in when boarding planes and instructing them to ‘shave their beards.'”

Investigators said the remains of the four terrorists were found in the “front portion of the aircraft” that was recovered in the pit at the point of impact.

Jack Shea, special agent in charge of the Pittsburgh division recalled his concern at the outset of the investigation about conspiracist’s (sic) theories that the airplane was shot down so the hijackers could not complete their mission, instead of having crashed during a struggle.  He recalled summoning aviation experts at the scene who told him that the evidence dispelling the conspiracy theories “was right along the flight path. If it was shot down, there would have been a huge debris field. Here we had the impact area and a debris area directly around that.”  Now the other witness said the debris was eight miles away.

Evidence supporting a shoot down of UA93 is that some debris was found around Indian Lake, about three miles from the alleged main crash scene.  Carol Delasko, who worked at Indian Lake Marina, said that moments after the crash apparently occurred, she saw a cloud of debris, several hundred feet across, above the lake.  “It just looked like confetti raining down all over the air above the lake,” she described.

Furthermore, some lightweight debris was found in the borough of New Baltimore, about eight miles from the supposed crash site and separated from it by a mountain ridge.  One New Baltimore resident, Melanie Hankinson, had been told by a neighbor, “There was a loud bang and smoke, and then these papers started blowing through your yard.”  Hankinson subsequently found “several financial documents, an airline magazine, a pilot handbook, and other small pieces of debris.” She recalled, “There was some black webbing”–apparently from insulation that had lined the belly of the plane. “A lot of people found that,” she added.

 

Part of a plane’s engine, weighing about 1,000 pounds, was recovered “a considerable distance” from the alleged crash site, according to Lyle Szupinka.  John Marshall, a state police fire marshal and criminal investigator who found this piece of wreckage, said it was “600 yards from the crash site.”

 

FBI spokesman William Crowley stated, “As they go deeper, they’re finding material that’s more significant; I’ll leave it at that. Much of the plane wreckage was reportedly found “buried 20 to 25 feet below the large crater.”

 

The FBI kept the contents of the voice recorder secret until it was forced by bereaved relatives to play the tape under heavy security at a hotel in April 2002. The family members later reported they heard sounds of an on-board struggle beginning at 9.58am, with a final ‘rushing sound’ at 10.03am, when the tape fell silent.

 

In 2006, when the judge at the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui ordered a transcript of the cockpit voice recorder, it ended with the sound of the hijackers shouting “praises to Allah.”  But these words were not heard by the family members.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported, “As investigators have delved deeper below the impact point, the material unearthed has become increasingly larger and more recognizable than the extremely fragmented debris found nearer the surface.”

 

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection began taking samples of soil and well water from around the creator site about a week after 9/11, to see if they had been contaminated by UA93’s fuel or other toxic materials.   AA 93 was estimated to have been carrying about 7,000 gallons of fuel, weighing about 37,500 pounds, but no jet fuel had socked into the soil.  If the jet had crashed into the creator, a jet fuel fire ball would have destroyed all the paper and mail found there.

 

The Smoke plume photographed made by a witness does not suggest a black smoking jet fuel explosion and follow on fire on the ground. Therefore one it is possible most of the jet fuel may have burnt up in mid-air. http://pilotsfor911truth.org/UA93_Press_Release.html

 

Other wreckage was found near a pond by firefighter Mike Sube and a couple of his colleagues. This included “a portion of the landing gear and the fuselage,” according to Sube. Sube said that “one of the tires was still intact with the bracket, and probably about three to five windows of the fuselage were actually in one piece lying there.”

Tom Spinelli, who also worked at the marina, said the debris was “mainly mail, bits of in-flight magazine, and scraps of seat cloth.”  Brad Boyer, who was fishing on the lake on the morning of September 11, recalled that he heard “a huge bang” and then the sky “rained garbage.” The debris he saw included “paper” and “tinfoil–little pieces of it.”  Some of the debris landed on Terry Lowery’s nearby farm. Lowery said it comprised “paper, insulation, and mail.”

On the morning of September 12, debris began washing up on the shore of the lake. This included “something that looked like a rib bone amid pieces of seats, small chunks of melted plastic, and checks,” according to marina employee John Fleegle.

The damage to Barry Hoover’s cottage was reportedly caused by “the shock wave.” It was reportedly located “a few hundred yards away” from where Flight 93 supposedly crashed.  It was also “nestled in a thick stand of trees.”

The Washington Post described, “The shock wave from flight 93 … spewed debris through the woods with such force that it blew out all the windows and doors, and shook the foundation on Barry’s place.” Barry Hoover said that his cottage, meanwhile, “looked like what you see after a tornado or hurricane goes through–a total ruin.”  The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that “every window and door” of the cottage “had been blown off and obliterated, [the cottage’s] ceilings and floor tiles had been blasted loose, and much of the interior was wrecked.”  Furniture had been tossed around, the refrigerator was twisted backwards and shoved away from the wall, and items had been thrown from the cupboards onto the floor.

FBI agent Wells Morrison commented: “It was strange. The black boxes are attached in the tail of the aircraft and next to each other, but the flight data recorder was found 13 feet into the crater and the cockpit voice recorder 25 feet into it.  http://911blogger.com/news/2013-02-19/shanksville-pennsylvania-911-mysterious-plane-crash-site-without-plane

 

In May 2007, members of Pilots for 9/11 Truth received documents from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and began a close analysis of the flight data it contain from UA 93.  After expert review and cross check, Pilots for 9/11 Truth has concluded that the information in these NTSB flight data documents do not support, the official story of the impact crater in a field near Shanksville, PA, etc. and in some instances factually contradicts it.

 

The NTSB made a Flight Path Animation approach path and altitude, but it does not support eye witness observations. The NTSB said United Airlines Flight 93 approached from the North-Northwest at a high altitude.  However, witnesses report the aircraft approaching from the southeast over Indian Lake and prior to them witnessing an explosion.  According to the official story and analysis of the creator of the Flight Path Animation, flight UA 93 impacted the ground almost vertically and not at any angle.   Yet the flight data recorder data provided by the NTSB, showed a 35 degree angle on impact. http://pilotsfor911truth.org/UA93_Press_Release.html

 

The Assistant US Attorney General Patrick A. Rose, representing the FBI, said no attempt was made by the FBI to formally identify the aircraft (UA93). The justification he provided was that “[t]he identities of the airplanes hijacked in the September 11 attacks was never in question.”  According to the FBI, about 95 percent of the aircraft was recovered from the crash scene.  The FBI did not forward the wreckage to the National Transportation Safety Board for a mandatory crash investigation but “since [it] had no more use for it, (we) turned it over, 12 days after the crash, to United Airlines.”

 

Photographers were not allowed to document the recovery of the aircraft.   I want to know why are there was so few photos that were made public of the wreckage on the ground?   Because there are so many questions about UA 93, the public needs to see all photos of recover airplane parts.

 

After weeks of combing the area, searchers found “about 1,500 mostly scorched samples of human tissue totaling less than 600 pounds or about eight percent of the total combined bodily weight of the alleged total passengers, crew and hijackers. http://www.opednews.com/articles/1/There-is-no-evidence-that-by-Elias-Davidsson-100811-366.html

 

——————-

 

Officially there were 35 calls made among the 40 passengers and crew on Flight 93, with callers using either mobile phones or GTE Airfones fitted into the backs of the aircraft seats.   But there are serious doubts about making cellphone calls or Airfone calls given the technology of 2001 — calls at an altitude of six miles and flying at some 450 to 500 mph, could be possible because of range of the cell phone radio signal is week and going at 500 mph, would not give the signal a chance to connect with cellphone towers on the ground because it takes a second or two for the handshake with each tower.  By the time, one handshake is connected to a tower, the jet has flown out of radio range and the call has to go thru another hand-shake with a tower miles away from the first, etc. etc.  and not cell phone call  can be hand.

 

At first the FBI insisted there were 13 mobile phone calls and later they reduced this number to just two at the trial this year of Zacarias Moussaoui. There were no billing records for these alleged calls.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-401315/Flight-93-shot-claims-book.html#ixzz4S79PEgqO

 

In 2006 the FBI presented evidence at the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui (aka “the 20th hijacker”).   FBI exhibit (P200054) from the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui shows that Barbara Olson made only one phone call –– it did not connect, and it lasted for 0 seconds.   There is a disagreement about his story because during the terrorism trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, the FBI stated that only one phone call was made from AA 77 and it was not made by Barbara Olson, Ted Olson’s wife, rather it was made by another passenger to her parents.

 

So we have a problem because the US Solicitor General Ted Olson because said his wife Barbara reported that the flight had been hijacked, and the hijackers had knives and box cutters.  And that she further indicated that the hijackers were not aware of her phone call, and that they had put all the passengers in the back of the plane.  About a minute into the conversation, the call was cut off.  Ted Olson tried unsuccessfully to reach Attorney General John Ashcroft.  Shortly after the first call, Barbara Olson reached her husband again.  She reported that the pilot had announced that the flight had been hijacked, and she asked her husband what she should tell the captain to do.  Ted Olson asked for her location and she replied that the aircraft was then flying over houses.

Another passenger told her they were traveling northeast.  Ted Olson than says he informed his wife of the two previous hijackings and crashes.  She did not display signs of panic and did not indicate any awareness of an impending crash.  At that point, the second call was cut off.” (The 9/11 Commission Report)

 

Ted Olson in 2001 stated he received a phone call from his wife who was on American Airlines 77 that allegedly crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11.   He stated that during her phone call that she told him that hijackers had box cutters and moved everyone on the 757 to the rear of the plane.  (http://www.archive.org/details/The911CommissionReportIsFatallyFlawed?start=0.5)

 

Another problem was that Ted Olson went back and forth on whether his wife had used a cell phone or a passenger-seat phone. He finally settled on the latter, thereby avoiding the problem of whether a cell phone call would have been possible from a jet moving some 400 or 500 mph at 30,000 feet.  In 2006, however, an American Airlines representative, in response to a query, said: “we do not have phones on our Boeing 757.  The passengers on flight 77 used their own personal cellular phones to make out calls during the terrorist attack.”   http://davidraygriffin.com/lectures/911-and-nationalist-faith/

 

David Ray Griffin, PhD presented extensive evidence that reported cell phone calls from the airliners from approximately ten reported cell phone calls from United 93, could not have occurred, because the cell phone technology at the time did not allow calls to be made from airliners flying at a high altitude (Flight 93 was at 34,300 to 40,700 feet when the calls were reportedly made).

 

The famous “let’s roll” drama of the passenger revolt on UA 93 was relayed by passenger Todd Beamer’s 13-minute unrecorded seat-back call to GTE telephone supervisor Lisa Jefferson, who reported Beamer as strangely tranquil, declining to speak to his wife.  Eerily, Beamer’s line remained open for 15 minutes after the crash.  The Verizon wireless record shows that 19 calls were made from Beamer’s cell phone long after the crash of UA 93.

 

Initial media reports and FBI interviews detailed more than a dozen cell phone calls from the planes at high elevation.  But a telephone spokesperson stated that sustained mobile calls were not possible above 10,000 feet.

 

Two other women reported that their Caller-ID showed their husband’s cell numbers on their answering machines, which while lasting several minutes, had been made from elevations of 25,000 and 35,000 feet.

 

None of the telephone billing, nor any of the cell phone location data stored in standard phone company records has been publicly released. http://online.wsj.com/article/PR-CO-20130516-909978.html

 

  1.  The 2001 anthrax letters linked the 9/11 and the anthrax attacks by the words written on them,

“Death to Israel, Death to America, Allah is Great”

Approximately one week after the September 11th attacks, somebody put spores of the bacteria anthrax into envelopes and sent them around.  As a result five people died of anthrax, and about 22 are generally said to have become ill from it.

 

The “anti-terrorism” Patriot Act is introduced in Congress on October 2, 2001, but it is not well received by all. [US CONGRESS, 10/2/2001]

 

One day later, Senate Majority Leader and future anthrax target Tom Daschle (D-SD) says he doubts the Senate will take up this bill in the one week timetable the administration wants. As head of the Senate, Daschle has great power to block or slow passage of the bill. Attorney General John Ashcroft accuses Senate Democrats of dragging their feet. [WASHINGTON POST, 10/3/2001]

 

On October 4, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman and future anthrax target Patrick Leahy (D-VT) accuses the Bush administration of reneging on an agreement on the bill. Leahy is in a key position to block or slow the bill. Some warn that “lawmakers are overlooking constitutional flaws in their rush to meet the administration’s timetable.”

 

On October 6th, Attorney General Ashcroft complains about “the rather slow pace…over his request for law enforcement powers… Hard feelings remain.” [WASHINGTON POST, 10/4/2001]

 

Two more anthrax letters are sent out between October 6-9th, 2001 to the offices of US Senators Daschle and Leahy as difficulties in passing the Patriot Act continued.  The letter to Leahy is mis-routed and not discovered until mid-November. The anthrax spores used in this case were even more refined and more lethal than in the first wave.

 

These letters contained the following message:

“09-11-01
YOU CAN NOT STOP US.
WE HAVE THIS ANTHRAX.
YOU DIE NOW.
ARE YOU AFRAID?
DEATH TO AMERICA.
DEATH TO ISRAEL.
ALLAH IS GREAT. “

The writing is the same slanted, block style used in the earlier wave of anthrax letters and the content of the message is very similar.

 

Early September: “Some White House personnel” are given ciprofloxacin, the antibiotic of choice against anthrax.

 

Richard Cowen said, “I was told, in a roundabout way, that I should buy Cipro” after 9/11 before a threat was known from anthrax.

 

Dr. Bruce Ivins was accused of sending an anthrax letters

 

  • Bruce Ivins’ bosses at the military lab in Maryland insisted under oath that he lacked the time, equipment and know-how to produce the anthrax.
  • Justice Department lawyers said Dr. Ivins “did not have the specialized equipment” in his lab to make the dry anthrax powder in the letters.
  • Fort Derrick did not work with dry anthrax, they only worked with a liquid anthrax and Ivins only worked with the liquid form of anthrax.
  • It would have been impossible for Ivins to use lab equipment without being detected  and co-workers said they would have known it if he had been working militarizing dry anthrax
  • he would have left evidence …in order words, anthrax dust would have covered the machine he (was alleged) to use to produce the powder.
  • Dr. Ivins did not have the lab skills to make the fine powdered anthrax used in the letters.
  • Ivins never showed “that he understood weaponization technology of anthrax spores”
  • the FBI grossly underestimated the time it would take to produce the amount of anthrax used in the letter attacks.
  • Ivins would have needed six months to a year, working almost full-time
  • someone would have had to help him.
  • Dugway labs has and had been secretly producing anthrax since 1991.   More importantly, Battelle lab directs that program as well.

 

The anthrax spores were coated with polyglass and each anthrax spore given an electrostatic charge, so that it would repel other spores and “float”.   This was very advanced bio-weapons technology to which even Ivins’ bosses said he didn’t have access.  Top anthrax experts like Richard Spertzel say that Ivins didn’t do it. Spertzel also says that only four or five people in the entire country knew how to make anthrax of the quality used in the letters, that Spertzel was one of them, and it would have taken him a year with a full lab and a staff of helpers to do it.

 

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories completely debunked an FBI theory, saying that the silicon was intentionally added to the anthrax spores.  Ivins and Ft. Detrick didn’t have that capability … but other government labs did.  Sandia National Lab found, iron, tin and silicon were all additives which made the anthrax spores in the letters more deadly. I assume they meant more likely to be breathed in, by someone resulting in lung infection which is deadly.

 

Just before he was set to be indicted and stand trial, Ivins allegedly committed suicide by an overdose of Tylenol while in his Maryland home and he died in hospital shortly thereafter.  Sources:   The 2001 Anthrax Deception – The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy by Dr. Graeme MacQueen

The FBI head agent in charge of the anthrax investigation – Richard Lambert –said there is a wealth of exculpatory evidence pointing that Ivins was not guilty which the FBI continues to conceal from Congress and the American people.  He said the FBI held press conferences and highly selective evidentiary presentations which were replete with material omissions.  For example, FBI emphasized Ivins had access to a photocopy machine, but fails to mention the notes that accompanied the anthrax letter  that they were not printed on that machine.

 

Lambert filed a federal whistleblower lawsuit calling the entire FBI anthrax investigation bullshit.    While leading the investigation for the next four years, his efforts to advance the case met with intransigence from Washington Field Office (WFO) executive management, apathy and error from the FBI Laboratory, politically motivated communication embargos from FBI Headquarters .

 

The FBI Laboratory’s deliberate concealment from the Anthrax Task Force of its discovery of human DNA on the anthrax-laden envelope addressed to Senator Leahy and the Lab’s initial refusal to perform comparison testing.

 

After locking in on Ivins in 2007, the FBI stopped searching for a match to a unique genetic bacterial strain scientists had found in the anthrax that was mailed to the Post and to NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw, although a senior bureau official had characterized it as the hottest clue to date.

Four anthrax-laden envelopes were recovered which were addressed to two news media outlets in New York City (the New York Post and Tom Brokaw at NBC) and two senators in Washington D.C. (Patrick Leahy and Tom Daschle). The anthrax letters addressed to New York were mailed on September 18, 2001, just seven days after the 9/11 attacks. The letters addressed to the senators were mailed 21 days later on October 9, 2001. A fifth mailing of anthrax is believed to have been directed to American Media, Inc. (AMI) in Boca Raton, Florida base.

 

The federal government has agreed to pay $2.5 million to the widow and children of Robert Stevens killed in the anthrax letter attacks of 2001.  Stevens had come into contact with anthrax likely through the letter that was likely mailed to the offices of American Media, the publisher of The National Enquirer, The Globe, Star and other supermarket tabloids in Boca Raton, Florida.   No letter was recovered from the offices of American Media.  Robert Stevens, 62, died on Oct. 5, 2001, days after inhaling anthrax powder at work.

 

The judge found that the Army did not adequately secure its supply of the deadly pathogen.  Documents and testimony also showed minimal vetting of government scientists who worked with anthrax and other pathogens, weak laboratory security and haphazard inventory controls before 2001. As part of the agreement, Justice Department lawyers are seeking to have many documents that were uncovered in the litigation kept under court seal or destroyed.

 

Laying a trail and the Anthrax came from a US lab

 

Johnell Bryant, a loan manager in the Department of Agriculture’s Florida Farm Service Office, recalled after September 11th that Atta came to her office to get a $650,000 cash loan to finance a twin-engine, six-passenger airplane (not a crop-duster.) She said that the man had told her that he intended to build a tank in the passenger plane so he could also use it for crop-dusting. She said that the meeting had occurred in 2000, between “the third week of April to the third week of May of 2000.” She was able to fix the date because the Far Service subsequently moved their office to Florida City. Bryant ask Mohamed Atta his name and he wrote down his name and spelled it A-T-T-A-H, and he told her ”No, A-T-T-A, as in Atta boy!”

 

While no doubt some Arab-looking man made an inquiry about getting a loan during this period, Mohamed Atta was in Germany during that time period, applying for his visa to come to the United States. He did not arrive in the United States until June 3rd 2000. If so, the person who came into Bryant’s office to get a loan to buy a passenger plane in April or May 2000 could not have been Mohamed Atta. Bryant reported that Atta was a rather sinister person ready to “cut the throat” of people and that he admired Osama bin Laden. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9a0i91-npyE&feature=youtu.be

  1.  The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) alleged they used the Airport Surveillance Radar (ASR) data from Newark International Airport to calculate the speeds on impact of United Airlines flight 175 and American Airlines flight AA 11 when they hit the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on 9/11.   They also stated they used video tapes people took of the impacts.  But they stated in their report impossible and incorrect speeds.

 

They reported:  UA 175’s speed on impact as 510 knots (approximately  ~587 mph)

AA 11’s speed on impact as 430 knots  (~495 mph)

 

But Boeing engineers say the maximum speed is 360 knots (~414 mph) based on their wind tunnel tests at low altitudes where the air is three times denser (or thicker) than at 30,000 feet.   Flying any faster will damage the engines and the dynamic pressure from the friction of the air against the airplane structure also risks causing the airplane to be torn apart, risking the wings to be torn off or the aluminum skin to be ripped off.   But of course the alleged hijackers could care less.

 

Boeing would never try flying one of their jets at some 500 mph at low altitude, so no one has actually tested when the wings will actually fall off, etc.  However we do have an example when a 767-200, Egypt Airlines 990, came apart in mid-air as the pilot committed suicide by nose diving into the ground.  When this jet reached a maximum speed at mach 0.99M (~655 mph) at 22,000 feet in the relatively thin air, this 767 came apart in mid-air  EA 990’s speed was recorded on its flight data recorder.

Here is a good youtube video that may help you understand all the above.

http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=18314

 

Here is a good youtube video simulation.   Notice how hard it is to even see the Twin Towers at this high rate of speed before the airplane hits the Towers. http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=22753

 

Three video tapes of the final few second of flight UA 175 that flew into the South Tower allegedly made by: Park Foreman – 540 mph  Not only was the speed faked, so was the foreground to fake two different people video taping.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pcce3k_cCzk

Evan Fairbanks – 565 mph
“by Unknown person” – 492 mph

 

The below noted institutions analyzed these video tapes and found the speed of the airplane as was not  real, therefore at least one of these  video tapes was faked.

 

Massachusetts Institute of Technology          – 503 mph

British Royal Air Force                                    – 575 mph
Federal Aviation Administration                      – 586 mph
National Institute of Standards and Tech.      – 546 mph
Federal Emergency Management Agency     – 590 mph

 

In the below link/u-tube video, Richard D Hall’s analysis of  video tapes of the alleged jet flying horizontally (straight and level) moving also at the impossible (faked) speed of 580 mph  He also shows via this 3D model that at the flight path of the alleged UA 175 agrees with 26 videos tapes taken on 9/11 as the jet impacts the South Tower.  Therefore 26 videos being faked gives evidence that odds are none were faked, at least as to the flight path.  This is evidence proving people saying NO PLANE hit the South Tower are wrong.  We also have airplane parts photographed on the ground, and witnesses to them being recovered/ collected.

In frame 13:15 Hall wrongly show a two inch thick inner core column.  All the outer box columns for about an inch or less thick.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3B5zbk1Xrs

 

 

I think this lie was done because if you double the speed of the airplanes that causes the force on impact to increase 8 times.  There were 21 eyewitnesses who noted see an airplane it the South Tower and there were some 60 video tapes of UA 175.

http://www.911research.dsl.pipex.com/ggua175/speed/

 

The data from the National Transportation Safety Board given to the group Pilots for 9/11 Truth via a FOIA request is false.  The data showed the 767 flying faster than is possible.  Only above some 25,000 feet can a 767 at 500 mph in the thinner air.  Large commercial size jets can only fly at less than some 360 mph in the dense air at low altitude because the wings produce too much lift.   At 320 knots (368 mph) at sea level the nose of a 767 rises uncontrollably and the pilot cannot push on the yoke to forced the nose downward in order to fly straight and level or to descend. The pilot of AA 77 had to be going slower than that to dive into the Pentagon.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-9EMrna-WU

 

Commercial airlines pilot have stated that they could not fly into the Twin Towers at the top speed and doing a descending turn, even with no wind.  On 9/11 there was also a nine mph cross wind blowing from the North Northwest.  At this speed, all the pilot has to do is move her/his hand ever so very slightly and he/she would miss the buildings.    Pilots say it is humanly impossible to do what happen. No human could fly those planes into the building.   The odds of doing it twice in a row without one plane missing the Towers, are well over one in a million.

But wait, there is more.   There no Flight Data Recording to corroborate the radar and video tape evidence as to the superhuman flying of these airplanes.

 

New York City firefighters, Mike Bellone and Nicholas De Masi, claimed in 2004 that they had found three of the four black boxes and that Federal agents took them and they said they were told by these two men not to mention having found them.  (The FBI denies the whole story.)

 

As Ted Lopatkiewicz, director of public affairs at the National Transportation Safety Board which has the job of analyzing the black boxes data, says, “It’s very unusual not to find a recorder after a crash…

 

A source at the National Transportation Safety Board said, “Off the record, we had the boxes,” the source said.  “You’d have to get the official word from the FBI as to where they are, but we worked on them here.”

 

Had all black boxes from four airplanes?   This is not a clear statement.

 

FBI spokesman Stephen Kodak said, “To the best of my knowledge, the flight recording devices

from the World Trade Center crashes were never recovered.  At least we never had them.”

  1.   The 9/11 Commission stated that origin of the money used for the 9/11 attacks was a question of little practical significance.  What?  

 

Alleged 9/11 hijackers, Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi were bankrolled by a front for the Saudi Ministry of Civil Aviation and by the Saudi Ambassador in Washington, D.C.—and the fact that al-Mihdhar was a central figure in the recruiting of the majority of the 19 alleged 9/11 hijackers—underscores the role of high-ranking Saudi officials and royals in the scheme.

 

Shortly after 9/11, Indian intelligence became aware of the fact that General Mahmoud Ahmad, head of Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) had wired $100,000 from Saeed Sheikh, a convicted terrorist who had associations with the ISI, to Mohamed Atta.   When Ahmed was exposed by the Wall Street Journal as having sent the money to the hijackers, he was forced to “retire” by President Pervez Musharraf.

 

The FBI’s failure to bring to the Joint Inquiry’s attention documents finding many connections between Saudis living in the United States and individuals associated with the terrorist attacks…interfered with the Commission’s ability to complete its mission,” said Former US Senator Graham who was co-chairman of the Joint Inquiry. 9/11 Commissioner former US Senator Graham said the FBI kept the 9/11 Commission in the dark, too.

The Freedom of Information lawsuit was filed in September 2012, after the FBI declined to release any records on the matter.  In March 2013, as the case moved toward trial this summer, the Bureau unexpectedly released 31 of 35 pages it said had been located. The partially censored records flatly contradict the FBI’s earlier public comments and stated that the Sarasota Saudis had “many connections” to persons allied with the hijackers.

 

Graham stated that Deputy FBI Director Sean Joyce, the Bureau’s second in command, personally intervened to block him from speaking with the special agent-in-charge of the Sarasota investigation.
http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/06/05/3434487/graham-fbi-hindered-congresss.html#storylink=cpy

 

The Joint Congressional Inquiry staff, and the staff of the subsequent 9/11 Commission, were never once told by the FBI about the Sarasota, FL. links to the 9/11 hijackers. It was later confirmed that Abdulazzi al-Hiijjii and his father-in-law, Esam Ghazzawi, were closely tied to members of the Saudi Royal Family. They were also both on a US Government watch list of suspected terrorist funders prior to the 9/11 attacks.

In 2011, even more evidence of the FBI covered up came out as the result of solid investigative work by author Anthony Summers and Dan Christensen, the publisher of the Broward Bulldog, an online publication in Broward County, Fla. What Summers and Christensen discovered was that another wealthy Saudi, with close ties to the Royal Family, had been in touch with three additional hijackers in the Sarasota, Fla. area.  Mohammed Atta, Marwan al-Shehi, and Ziad Jarrah had all visited the Sarasota, FL home of Abdulazzi al-Hiijjii, his wife Arnoud and her father Esam Ghazzawi on a number of occasions.

  1. Declassified 28 pages were released with redactions about 14 years after the 9/11 Congressional report was released in 2002,  They revealed an indirect link previously hidden from the American public between the alleged al Qaeda operatives and a company associated with the Saudi Ambassador to the United States Prince Bandar bin Sultan.  He served as Saudi Ambassador from 1983 to 2005.  The connection to Bandar was made through a phone number found in Abu Zubaydah’s phone book. It was retrieved during a Pakistani military intelligence raid accompanied by CIA officers and FBI agents when he was arrested/captured in Pakistan in March 2002. In his phone book was found telephone numbers linked to the United States, including an unlisted number for a company that managed Bandar’s estate in Aspen, Colorado. An unlisted number was also found for a bodyguard who worked at the Saudi Embassy in Washington.

 

Telephone and computer wiretaps had given the agents a strong hunch where Abu Zubaydah, 31, was hiding.   He called al-Qaeda’s “chief of operations.” After his capture Zubaydah was the first “detainee” known to be tortured by the CIA. Zubaydah was born into a Palestinian family living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and grew up in a comfortable middle-class home.

 

The 28 pages raises questions about another possible link between Bandar and the attacks: the prince’s relationship with a Saudi national named Osama Bassnan.  Bassnan lived across the street from two of the 9/11 hijackers in San Diego: Nawaf al Hazmi and Khalid al Mihdhar. These two suspects lived in an apartment owned by Abdussattar Shaikh, who had an association with Prince Bandar. Shaikh was an FBI informant at this time.  He advocated Saddam Hussein‘s overthrow in Iraq in March 2003. He encouraged military action against Iraq and supported Dick Cheney‘s agenda for “The New Middle East”, which called for pro-democracy programs in both Syria and Iran.   Bandar was exposed for his involvement in the Iran-Contra scandal. He had arranged $32 million in Saudi financing for the Nicaraguan Contras.

 

Saudi Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud was the head of Saudi Arabia’s foreign intelligence, the General Intelligence Directorate (GID), a position he held for 23 years from 1979 until 2001.  Prince Turki resigned abruptly from his post ten days before the 9/11 attacks in 2001.  Saudi Arabia’s foreign intelligence joined Pakistan’s intelligence service and the CIA in funding the mujahideen. Turki last met with bin Laden in early 1990, when bin Laden was interested in aiding against the South Yemen communists. His intelligence agency kept careful track of bin Laden from the beginning of his rise.  In 1993, Turki helped mediate between warring factions in Afghanistan.  In 2002, Prince Turki was named in a multibillion-dollar lawsuit by the families of 11 September victims, alleging that he and other Saudi princes, banks, and charities may have funded the terrorists involved in the attack.

 

Osama Bassnan admitted to an FBI asset that he met Hazmi and Mihdhar in January 2002 while the hijackers were in San Diego, however, he then denied this in a subsequent conversation.  Bassnan’s wife, meanwhile, received tens of thousands of dollars in monthly stipends from a Saudi charity run by Prince Bandar’s wife, Princess Haifa al-Faisal. Bassnan’s wife also received at least one check directly from Prince Bandar himself.

 

The FBI determined that at least some of the checks meant for Bassnan’s wife were given to the wife of another Saudi man, Omar al Bayoumi, living in the United States.  Al Bayoumi helped alleged hijackers, Nawaf al Hazmi and Khalid al Mihdhar settle in San Diego when they arrived in the country around early 2000 by finding them an apartment and even co-signing their lease.  He paid their rent. He drove them to and from the Social Security offices and he helped them obtain driver’s licenses. He also helped them locate flight schools in the US.  The FBI later learned that Bayoumi had ties to terrorist activity.

 

Most intelligence community experts and officers have concluded that Bayoumi was a non-official cover (NOC) officer for either the GID or the Saudi Military of Defense and Aviation, if not both. That means he worked for departments of Prince Turki and/or Prince Sultan.

 

Al Bayoumi most likely reported thru a cut-out who would then report to the GID Chief of Station in the Saudi Embassy. That person, in turn, would report either directly to Sultan and/or Turki or to a division head in charge of the US stations. That person would most certainly report to either Sultan or Turki. There are maybe three channels that separate Bayoumi from two of the highest officials in the Saudi government.

Bayoumi’s cover was collecting a paycheck as a ghost employee of a Saudi defense company called Dallah Avco, as well as other Saudi fronts which were all run by the Saudi Ministry of Defense and Aviation – the head of which was Prince Sultan, Bandar’s father.

 

Fahad al Thumairy was employed by the Saudi Consulate in LA. He traveled under diplomatic passports while also acting as an imam of a local mosque in LA (which suggests that he may have been an agent of the GID, per how case officers of official cover are documented and placed). As a high level Consulate employee, Thumiary fell under the administration of the Saudi Embassy, again headed by Bandar in 2001.

 

Thumairy had extensive phone calls with Bayoumi and the two hijackers, but lied to the FBI about ever meeting Bayoumi or knowing the San Diego cell. When shown the phone records of is calls related to the men by investigators, he said the records were fabricated. The San Diego cell hijackers attended his mosque and he had assigned someone to look after them upon their arrival in LA, but denied this to the FBI.   In January of 2000, Bayoumi met with Thumiary at the Saudi consulate. Directly after this meeting, Bayoumi went to the restaurant at which he met the San Diego cell ( Nawaf al Hazmi and Khalid al Mihdhar).  Bayoumi also tasked another Saudi national to help with the San Diego cell by the name of Modhar Abdullah.

 

Saleh al-Hussayen was a Saudi government official working for the Saudi Ministry of the Interior. He stayed at the same hotel as three of the hijackers on the night prior to the 9/11 attacks.   The FBI attempted to interview him about his stay at the same hotel as the hijackers on the same night.  He then went back to Saudi Arabia where he got a significant promotion.

 

Hussayen is believed by many in the intelligence community to have been a Saudi government intelligence operative with his cover as an official of the Ministry of the Interior. If he was indeed an intelligence operative, he would have reported directly to the GID Chief of Station at the Saudi Embassy in DC, who in turn would have reported to Prince Turki.

 

Osama Bassnan was an expatriate Saudi living in California. He attended the mosque where Thumairy was imam. Princess Haifa, Prince Bandar’s wife, however, continued to send money to Bassnan who in turn, signed her checks over to Bayoumi’s wife. The total amount reported in the news has varied from $75, 0000 to upwards of $130,000. All of the checks from Haifa were cashier’s checks.

 

Bassnan was close with the two San Diego hijackers. One of his associates was found to be a contact of admitted 9/11 co-conspirator Ramzi Binalshibh. He was a very vocal supporter of Osama bin Laden and publicly bragged about doing more for the San Diego hijackers than Bayoumi.  Bassnan had forged documents. But what we now know is that those documents may have been provided by the Saudi Government.

 

While US Government officials have gone to great lengths in stating that the 28 Page document only incriminates low level Saudi Government officials, it is clear were high level members of Saudi Intelligence.

 

According to FBI sources, this policy of “hands off the Saudis,” became much worse and more broad after the Bush administration took office. The FBI was told to “back off” investigating any of the Saudi royals as well as the bin Laden family.

 

Ercan was a subcontractor of Dallah Avco, which was a company under the umbrella of Avco Dallah Trans Arab, which is a subsidiary of Al Barakat Investment and Development company. Al Barakat was shut down after the September 11th attacks. Numerous investigations found no connection to terrorism, however it was relaunched in 2012.

The 28 pages also say “there are also indication of Saudi government support for terrorist activity through charitable organizations,” including the Saudi-based Umm al-Qura Islamic Charitable Foundation (UQ), which is described as being involved in “suspicious money transfers, document forgery, providing jobs to wanted terrorist suspects, and funding travel for youths to attend jihad training.” According to reports cited in the 28 pages, UQ couriers had transported more than $330,000 in cash, “most of which they received from Saudi embassies in the Far East.”

A veteran New York FBI agent described the Saudis as having been “useless and obstructionist for years.”

 

The pages also reveal that, in May 2001, the U.S. intelligence community sought Saudi assistance in finding an individual in Saudi Arabia who was in contact with Zubaydah and who was “most likely aware of an upcoming al-Qa’ida operation.” The Saudi government put conditions on assisting U.S. authorities with the matter and ultimately did not cooperate.

 

The former chief of the CIA’s bin Laden unit said it was clear to him that, after 1996, the Saudi government would render no aid to the United States in its tracking of the al Qaeda leader. They also refer to a CIA memo that says the Saudis stopped providing information on bin Laden because he had “too much information about official Saudi dealings with Islamic extremists in the 1980s for Riyadh to deliver him into US hands.”

 

In 1998 al Qaeda terrorists bombed two American embassies in Africa. The FBI agents say some of the money for the attacks led back to the people they had been tracking in Chicago and to a powerful Saudi Arabian businessman, Yassin al-Kadi.  “Two months after the embassies are hit in Africa, FBI headquarters wanted to shut down the criminal investigation,” said FBI agent Robert Wright. “They wanted to kill it.”  ABCNEWS reported on December 19, 2002, that FBI special agent Robert Wright and his partners John Vincent (a 27-year veteran at the FBI) sais FBI headquarters had ordered them to stop their criminal investigations of suspected terrorists tied to the bombings of these two US embassies.

 

Wright says that when he pressed for authorization to open a criminal investigation into the money trail, his supervisor stopped him.  “Do you know what his response was?  ‘I think it’s just better to let sleeping dogs lie.'”

 

Wright said, “Those dogs weren’t sleeping. They were training. They were getting ready.”  All FBI intelligence division wanted him to do was to follow suspected terrorists and file reports, but make no arrests.  “The supervisor who was there from headquarters was right straight across from me and started yelling at me: ‘You will not open criminal investigations. I forbid any of you. You will not open criminal investigations against any of these intelligence subjects.'”  This order also outraged Chicago federal Assistant District Attorney Mark Flessner, who was assigned to the case.

 

Now there are two way to look at this evidence, either the FBI is putting out a story about the FBI intelligence division incompetence/ ineptitude or the FBI intelligence division is correct and wants to catch bigger fish, is protecting methods and sources, or the Bush administration is adding in a cover up and/or is afraid the Saudis will cut off selling their oil to the US.   But this may be circumstantial evidence of a cover up of a Saudi connection to 9/11.  In any case, we know for damn sure the vast majority of the evidence noted in this paper points the finger away from 19 Arab/Saudi terrorists. http://abcnews.go.com/Primetime/story?id=131907&page=1

 

  1.   Fifteen of the 19 alleged hijackers were Saudi Arabian and at least six have been reported to be still being alive. (Source:   The 9/11 Commission: Omissions and Distortions by David Ray Griffin)

 

Al-Bayoumi was a ghost employee for a Saudi company, Ercan, which contracted with Dallah Avco Aviation, a Saudi government contract company owned by Saleh Kamel, a wealthy Saudi.  The US government found that al-Bayoumi was paid a monthly salary of $2,800, with an expense allowance of $465 a month. However, when the two future alleged hijackers arrived in southern California, al-Bayoumi’s expense allowance was raised to $3,700 a month.  The Bandar channel provided Osama Bassnan all total between $50,000 to $72,000 in the run-up to the 9/11 attacks.

 

Prince Bandar, later confronted on the payouts to the Saudi intelligence handlers of the 9/11 hijackers, wrote it off as a simple “act of charity.”  (Source:  Intelligence Matters: The CIA, the FBI, Saudi Arabia, and the Failure of America’s War on Terror by Former US Sen. Bob Graham.)

 

It is reported that the FBI has closed down their investigation into Saudis Omar al-Bayoumi and Osama Bassnan.  The Associated Press reports, “The FBI concluded at most the two Saudi men occasionally provided information to their kingdom or helped Saudi visitors settle into the United States, but did so in compliance with Muslim custom of being kind to strangers rather than out of some relationship with Saudi intelligence.” (AP 3/24/2004).

 

  1. For years, there was no verifiable evidence that the alleged hijackers were actually on the passenger lists, nor who were the other passengers, because the US Government and the airlines refused to release certified copies of the original these documents. FBI forms 302 documenting interviews by agents of of an unnamed American Airlines employee who stated she “took the tickets for (Flight 11) from AA flight attendant Karen Martin and brought them to the ticket lift and deposited them in the safe.”  There tickets were never released as evidence.

 

Chris Kelly spokesman for the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP) said the authorities were reluctant to consider releasing the hijackers’ bodies.  “We are not sure what will happen to them, we doubt very much we are going to be making an effort to reach family members over there.  Dr. Jerry Spencer, a former chief medical examiner for AFIP spoke to CBS News.

 

Remains from the UA93 crash site were taken to a makeshift morgue at the Pennsylvania National Guard Armory near the Somerset County Airport.  At the insistence of the FBI, the alleged hijackers won’t be getting death certificates because investigators aren’t sure of their identities.”

From the 58 victims of AA flight 77 were identified by the AFIP.   This list did not include any Arabic names.

 

  1.  For UA93 and AA77 the remains that did not match DNA samples of known passengers, were ruled (by default) to be the alleged hijackers.   Samples of hair were obtained from where the alleged hijackers had lived or the cars they apparently left at the airports, were used to match up with DNA from body parts.   (Source:  Hijacking America’s Mind On 9/11: Counterfeiting Evidence By Elias Davidsson, pp. 43 to 58)

Of these 65 people, only three are on the 9-11 Compensation Fund list:

Flight 93: of the 45 people who are listed as dying on this flight, only 6 are listed in the SSDI (13%)

Of these 45 people, none are on the 9-11 Compensation Fund list:  No one

Of the 266 people that we were told died on these jets, only 11 relatives applied for compensation. Can you believe that not a single relative from Flight 93 applied for compensation? I can’t. Were all the relatives of the victims so rich that they weren’t eligible to receive compensation? No, that’s not it. (The minimum federal award was $250,000, and the average payout was about $1.8 million. The recipients only had to make agreement: they couldn’t sue the airlines.)

 

 

9-11 Victims Compensation Final Report:  Oddly, but consistent with everything concerning 9-11, the actual complete list of the people who benefited has been omitted from this report. Even without this, it does contain an interesting fact. According to the report, 98 percent of all the people who suffered a loss on 9-11 took the fund money. The average payment was $1.8 million.

 

According to the government, here are the number of people who accepted the compensation fund:

 

Out of a total of 92 people on Flight 11, only 65 accepted the 9-11 fund (71%)
Out of a total of 65 people on Flight 175, only 46 accepted the 9-11 fund (71%)
Out of a total of 64 people on Flight 77, only 33 accepted the 9-11 fund (52%)
Out of a total of 45 people on Flight 93, only 25 accepted the 9-11 fund (56%) http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=7299

 

  1. Would a devout Muslim who was set on being a suicide bomber do the following?  Hay, these Arabs were/are human.

 

According to US investigators, five of the hijackers including Atta, Al-Shehhi, Nawaq al Hamzi, Ziad Jarrah, and Hani Hanjour visited Las Vegas at least six times between May and August 2001. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that here, they “engaged in some decidedly un-Islamic sampling of prohibited pleasures in America’s reputed capital of moral corrosion,” including drinking alcohol, gambling, and visiting strip-clubs. As the South Florida Sun Sentinel observed, the hijackers frequent debauchery was at odds with the most basic tenets of Islam:  “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 Sept. 11, 2001.” (The War On Truth. p. 226)

 

A driver for a pair of local escort services told the Herald yesterday that he drove a call girl to the Park Inn in Chestnut Hill on September 9th  around 10:30 p.m. where she bedded down with one of the mass murderers. It was her second trip to the terrorist’s room that day. Two of the hijackers aboard Flight 11 that crashed into the World Trade Center – Waleed M. Alshehri and Wail Alshehri – spent September 9th in the Route 9 Hotel, sources said.

 

“She went there earlier in the day and then again later in the night,” the driver said of the escort. “She saw just one guy when I drove her over there.” The escort, a white blond woman in her early 20s, had a 20 minute tryst in the hotel room with one of the hijackers. “She was paid $180 in cash. She freaked out when she saw his picture on TV. She recognized one of the faces.” he said.

 

In the days before the attack, the driver brought the same woman to the Days Hotel on Soldiers Field Road in Brighton where some of the hijackers are known to have stayed. The woman, who worked for Broadway International and Day and Night Encounters escort services, told the driver she partied with one of the hijackers at the hotel.

 

According to Days Hotel manager Adam Sperling, one of the hijackers was a registered guest at the hotel from September 8th through the 11th. Sources told the Herald that more than one of the terrorists stayed there those nights.

 

The FBI confiscated guest records, but there were no traceable phone calls on the hotel bill because they apparently used a calling card to make their calls.

 

The driver said, “I drove some of the girls to him,”, adding that the relative often had friends with him. “They were using them right up until the day (the attacks) happened. He used to see the girls once a week.”  The driver assumed the men who hired the hookers were somehow connected to Osama Bin Ladin, but I assume he was just describing Arab looking people.

 

The FBI has interviewed the driver and the call girl and has seized records from the two escort services, the driver said. The woman, shaken by her sudden involvement in the international probe, has hired a lawyer, he added.

 

Workers at several escort services called by the Herald reported that they have been questioned by the FBI as to whether any of their women may have been with the hijackers.

 

In Florida, several of the hijackers – including reputed ringleader Mohamed Atta – spent $200 to $300 each on lap dances in the Pink Pony strip club.

 

And in Las Vegas, at least six of the hijackers spent time living it up on the Strip on various occasions between May and August. Marwan Al-Shehhi, frequently paid for lap dances at the Olympic Garden Topless Cabaret where he had a reputation as a lousy tipper, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

 

FBI agents have also reportedly questioned the owners of Nardone’s Go-Go Bar in Elizabeth, N.J. Several of the terrorists spent time in nearby Paterson and Newark and reportedly patronized the club.  http://s3.amazonaws.com/911timeline/2001/bostonherald101001.html

 

Atta, Shehhi and an unidentified man spent 3 1/2 hours at a sports bar, Shuckums, in Hollywood, Fla. While Atta played video games, the other two had about five drinks each and appeared resistant to paying the $48 tab. The manager, Tony Amos, recalled yesterday that he inquired whether they could not afford the bill. Shehhi “looked at me with an arrogant look,” Amos said. “He pulled out a wad of cash and put it on the bar table and said, ‘There is no money issue. I am an airline pilot.’ ”

 

At Shuckums Bar in Hollywood the night of the attacks, agents showed a manager pictures of the men. He and two bartenders said later they positively identified them as Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi. Manager Tony Amos said the two and another man “got wasted” in his place. Atta, who wore wire-rim glasses, sat on a front corner stool and talked with a third man while his companion furiously pumped dollar bills into a video poker game at the far end of the bar. Atta argued with the manager over his $48 drink bill. When the manager asked whether he could pay, Atta got offended and said, “I’m a pilot for American Airlines and I can pay my bill.” (Source:  Terrorists in our Midst, Palm Beach Post (Florida) September 10, 2006)

Investigators have been left to recreate the architecture and orchestration of the 9/11 plot largely from the recorded details of the hijackers’ brief American lives: Their cell phone calls, credit card charges, internet communications and [ATM] withdrawals,’ it says.

 

The terrorists took flight training before the attacks in Florida and Arizona and spent time together in New Jersey and Southern California. The 9/11 terrorists were caught on surveillance video in several cities in the days leading up to the attacks.  They stayed briefly in Las Vegas at the not-so-glamorous end of the Las Vegas Strip, at cheap motels guaranteed not to have surveillance cameras.

 

Mohammed Atta spent hours in June and August, 2001 at a cafe called Cyber Zone across from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Atta, Hani Hanjour, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Samir Jarrah – visited Vegas after going on several test flights to the East Coast, travelling in first class.  Spanish authorities seized videos from al Qaeda suspects that included footage of Las Vegas casinos

Tony Amos, the manager of Shuckums Oyster Bar and Restaurant in Hollywood, just north of Miami, was interviewed by the FBI and he and his barman and a waitress, they all identified Atta and his cousin as some hard drinkers who propped up the bar last Friday. Atta’s bill for three hours of vodka drinking came to $48. When he drunkenly disputed the charge, Amos intervened.

 

“Of course I can pay the bill,” Atta told him. “I’m an airline pilot.”

 

Atta, Shehhi and an unidentified man spent 3 1/2 hours at a sports bar, Shuckums, in Hollywood, FL. While Atta played video games, the other two had about five drinks each and appeared resistant to paying the $48 tab.

Around 1991, future 9/11 hijacker Hani Hanjour moved to Tucson, Arizona for the first time and he spent much of the rest of the decade in the state. One FBI informant claims that by 1998 they “knew everything about the guy.” [NEW YORK TIMES, 6/19/2002; WASHINGTON POST, 9/10/2002; 9/11 COMMISSION, 7/24/2004, PP. 521]

 

In 1994, the Phoenix FBI office uncovers startling evidence connecting Arizona to radical Muslim militants. According to FBI agent James Hauswirth, they are told that a group of “heavy duty associates” of al-Qaeda leader Sheikh Omar Abdul-Rahman have arrived in the area, fleeing New York in the wake of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. They are in the area to train a recruit as a suicide bomber. The recruit apparently is an FBI informant.

 

  1. Witnesses at the Pentagon reported hearing at least two explosions and the smell of cordite.  Cordite is a family of smokeless (gunpowder like) propellants/explosive. The military service members know from experience what it smells like. http://911review.org/Wiki/PentagonAttackWitnessesBlast.shtml

 

  1.  Inside the Pentagon some columns exhibit very unusual deformations.  That is the concrete  columns were destroyed from multiple explosions occurring in very different locations and at different times.  That was not from the impact of jet aircraft metal hitting them.   That is, only explosions could have propelled projectiles at the concrete columns from directions NOT associated with the angle a jet would have crashed thru the building.

 

  1.  In the following link you can see a photo of a fireball caused by an explosion.  It is not of a photo of huge fire burning on the inside the Pentagon. Notice the explosive fireball is reflected from smoke from a fire that had already been burning.  Therefore, this is evidence of a secondary explosion, not the explosion of a 757’s fuel tanks.  The jet fuel would have exploded instantly.

 

This photo or video tape frame was taken just at the right time. Also look at the very left side of this photo and you will see white smoke coming from the ground in the area of the helipad fire station. Also note the fire burning on the ground to the right of this fireball, is a fire caused by burning petroleum with the telltale black smoke. This black smoke was also reported coming from a tank full of  burning diesel fuel.  The diesel was used to power the generator trailer.

 

Just cut and paste this URL/link to your search engine to see the photo.

  1.   Official DoD autopsy reported that no Arab DNA found in any of the AA77 (757) remains.

 

  1.   Dr. Janette Sherman, who lived 12 miles downwind from the Pentagon, she turned on the Geiger counter that she uses in the work and it showed an extremely high reading more than eight to ten times higher than normal background radiation.  She worked for the Radiation and Public Health Project. She called her co-worker Dr. Leuren More, a radiation expert who lived in Berkeley, CA, and he advised her to “Get out of town, and don’t come back until it has rained three times.”  They took photographs of the readings on the Geiger counter as proof to back up their story.  Dr. More  worked for or formerly worked at the Nuclear Weapons Laboratory in California.

 

They also called the EPA, HAZMAT, and FBI and told them to “Get all those emergency response workers suited up.  They need to be protected.”  On September 13, 2001, EPA called back concurred that there was radiation at the Pentagon.  “Yup, the Pentagon crash rubble was radioactive, and we believe its depleted uranium…”  (http://www.iconoclast-texas.com/News/19news03.htm)

 

So where did this radiation come from?  Leslie M. Nichols, product spokesperson for Boeing’s 767 stated that, “Boeing has never used Depleted Uranium (DU) on either the 757 or the 767.”

After a week from 9/11 there were still high radiation levels of 75 to 83 cpm, 33 miles northwest of the Pentagon in soil readings.   Cindy Folkers of the Washington-based Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS) said normal background radiation levels for outdoor should have been between 12 to 20 cpm.   She also said that the actual radiation levels reported by the Dr. Sherman may have been significantly higher than she detected and reported due to the type of Geiger counter she was using. http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2004/10/300788.shtml

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2005/08/323285.shtml)

 

  1.   The New York Times reported that a group of Israeli men had been witnessed with a video camera aimed at the smoking Twin Towers on 9/11, and were seen congratulating one another.   It is reasonable to assume these Israel’s had arrived and parked their van next to the Doric Towers apartments before American Airlines flight 11 hit the North Tower.

 

Eyewitnesses saw them jumping for joy in Liberty State Park (and next to the Doric Towers apartment complex) after the first impact. Later on, other witnesses saw them celebrating on a roof in Weehawken, and still more witnesses later saw them celebrating with high fives in a Jersey City parking lot.

 

Eyewitnesses noticed the suspects at 8:51 am or earlier, and this is corroborated by the fact that one of the eyewitness’s friend was prompted to telephone her “immediately” after hearing the first plane crash.  When she looked out her window, she saw the smoke at the Twin Towers.  The first airplane AA 11 hit the north Tower at 8:46 a.m.

 

Another eyewitness stated he/she saw the Israelis “less than 5 minutes after the first plane impact

A third eyewitness who saw a white van with no side windows arrive and park in the same apartment block rear parking lot (near Liberty State Park) at 8:15 AM and stated he/she found it was gone by 9:20 AM.  A fourth eyewitness who saw a white van parked in the same parking lot and estimated the time to be as early as 8:00 am.

 

Another eyewitness says he spotted Sivan Kurzberg at the Doric Towers apartment complex the day before 9/11.

 

The FBI seized and developed their photos, one of which shows Sivan Kurzberg (one of the suspects) flicking a cigarette lighter in front of the smoldering ruins (North Tower) in an apparently celebratory gesture.   The photos clearly corroborate the eye witnesses’ statements in that the Israelis were visibly happy on nearly all of the photographs.

 

Israelis had taken 76 photographs; film was acquired from two cameras: a Canon EOS SLR and a Pentax P550.  According to an eye witness, one of the males appeared to be taking still photographs of and video (taping) the other males with the WTC in the background. All of the males appeared to be jovial in that they smiled, hugged one another, and gave “high fives.”   The photos had taken photographs from both the top of a van and from another location believed to be a parking lot near the Urban Moving Systems location in Weehawken, NJ.

 

A former Urban Moving Systems employee later contacted the Newark FBI Division with information indicating that he had quit his employment with Urban Moving Systems due to high amount of anti-American sentiment present among Urban’s employees.  The former employee stated that an Israeli employee of Urban had even once remarked, “Give us twenty years and we’ll take over your media and destroy your country.”

 

A subsequent investigation by Newark FBI Criminal Division Agents revealed a second eyewitness who reported having observed a white van in the same parking lot.  The vehicle was observed in the Liberty State Park’s Marine Terminal in Jersey City, NJ, located across the Hudson River from WTC.

 

Pursuant to this information, East Rutherford, NJ police authorities stopped an Urban Moving Systems van at a pre-positioned roadblock which was occupied by males similar to those described by witnesses above.  The van had been traveling eastbound along State Route 3 in New Jersey.

 

A NJ police officer reported that on stopping the van one of the passengers said, “We are Israeli, we are not your problem.  Your problems are our problems, the Palestinians are the problem”.  While being removed from the vehicle, Yaron Shmuel, (or spelled “ Shimuel”) told a police officer “We were on the West Side Highway during this incident”.   And according to FBI spokesman, these guys thought the first plane was a terrorist attack not an accident and that the attack would be beneficial to Israel.

 

Following the stop, police detained five individuals, all Israeli Nationals, on the grounds that they may have had information pertaining to the WTC explosions.  The matter was later forwarded to Newark FBI office, and the individuals were detained based violations of immigration their status and held for 71 days.

 

At the time of the vehicle stop, a search of the van and individuals was conducted.  Seizure of the individual’s’ property yielded the following: a 35mm camera, several personal telephone-style notebooks, back packs, airline tickets with immediate travel dates for destinations world-wide, Israeli passports (in some cases, expired), a German passport, and thousands of dollars of cash.  Student identifications later believed to be false were later found.  An eyewitness observed at least one of the males using a video camera that to film the explosion at WTC.

 

  1.  FBI’s National Security NS-2C Unit out of FBI Headquarters in Washington D.C. ordered Newark FBI office to abandon its investigation of the Israelis and to hand them over to the INS.

 

What’s really intriguing is that ABC’s 20/2012, the New York Post, and the New Jersey Bergen Record all clearly and unambiguously reported that a white van with Israelis was intercepted on a ramp near Route 3, which leads directly to the Lincoln Tunnel. http://www.takeourworldback.com/dancingisraelisfbireport.htm

 

  1.  A moving company, Urban Moving Systems was discovered to have conducted an emergency moving job for Zim-American, an Israeli Shipping Company that had occupied WTC North Tower just weeks prior to 911.

 

An attempt by the FBI to penetrate Israeli intelligence connected moving companies in New York and New Jersey, such as Urban Moving Systems, was shut down by pressure from FBI and Justice Department headquarters in Washington, DC.  Much of that pressure reportedly originated from then US Attorney for Northern New Jersey Michael Chertoff.

 

  1.   A group of Israelis were arrested after they were observed dancing on top of a white van was they watched the Twin Towers burning or collapsing from across the Hudson River.  The van was marked “Urban Moving Systems.”  The FBI got suspicious, having found maps of the city, certain places highlighted, $4,700 in cash in a sock, and foreign passports.  The cops bomb-sniffing dogs reacted as if they smelled explosives.  The FBI seized the prints of the photos of these Israelis had taken, showing one of them celebrating with the WTC smoldering in the background.  These dancing Israelis worked for a Weehawken, NJ moving company known as Urban Moving Systems.  Weehawken is about six miles from the World Trade Center.

 

  1.   “A few days after the attacks, Urban Moving Systems’ Israeli owner, Dominick Suter, dropped his business and fled the country for Israel.  He was in such a hurry to flee America that some of Urban Moving System’s customers were left with their furniture stranded in storage facilities.

 

  1.     “The Jewish weekly The Forward reported that the FBI finally concluded that at least two

of the detained Israelis were agents working for the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, and that Urban Moving Systems, the ostensible employer of the five Israelis, was a front operation.  This was confirmed by two former CIA officers, and they noted that movers’ vans are a common intelligence cover.  The Israelis were held in custody for 71 days before being quietly released.  http://onlinejournal.com/artman/publish/article_2702.shtml

 

  1.   Israeli Mossad spies were also trailing and harassing CIA officers who were tracking down alleged hijacker Mohammed Atta, especially in Fort Lee, New Jersey where Atta lived for a while.  Some 200 Israelis art student/spies appeared to have been following the alleged 9/11 hijackers.   Israeli agents in the United States were tailing FBI agents.

 

 

  1.  Two of these Mossad spies lived in the vicinity of the apartment used by alleged hijacker

pilots, Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi and were observing them around the clock, Hollywood, Florida.  This is where a flight school was located and Atta and Al-Shehhi were taking flight lessons.  (http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/exclusive1.htm)

 

 

  1.  What are the odds of a group of Israelis were arrested after they were observed dancing on top of a white van was they watched the Twin Towers burning or collapsing from across the Hudson River.  The van was marked “Urban Moving Systems.” The FBI got suspicious, having found maps of the city, certain places highlighted, $4,700 in cash in a sock, and foreign passports.  The police used a bomb-sniffing dogs and it reacted as if it smelt explosives.

According to Carl Cameron of FOX news, throughout late 2000 and 2001, a total of 200 Israeli spies were arrested. It was the largest spy ring to ever be uncovered in the history of the United States. The Washington Post also reported that some of these Israelis were arrested in connection with the 9-11 investigation.   However, FOX pulled the investigative series after Zionist groups complained to FOX executives. FOX even remove the written transcripts of the series from its website!   The FOX series and other mainstream news media sources revealed that many of these Israelis were army veterans with electronics and explosives expertise.

Why were Israeli explosives experts, posing as “art students” roaming the halls of US Federal buildings?

Some 200 Israeli spies were uncovered, among them many military members, electronics experts, wiretapping and phone tapping specialists, and explosives experts with the skill to needed to do a controlled demolition.  The FBI official told FOX’s Carl Cameron: “Evidence linking these Israelis to 9-11 is classified. I cannot tell you about the evidence that has been gathered. It is classified information.”

http://whatreallyhappened.com/hundreds.html

 

Mossad spies were also trailing and harassing CIA officers assigned to track people like alleged hijacker Mohammed Atta, especially in Fort Lee, New Jersey where Atta lived for a while.  These Israelis art student/spies came very close to the later alleged 9/11 hijackers. In the town of Hollywood, Florida, they identified the two flight school students from Hamburg and alleged hijack pilots, Mohammed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi.  These Mossad spies lived in the vicinity of the apartment used by these two, observing them around the clock.

 

FBI agents were tailing Israeli agents in the United States – who, in turn, were living and working in close proximity to the Al Qaeda hijackers.  The FBI was stymied (the covert operation blown) by leaks via the secure FBI and Justice Department communications systems set up by Israeli telecommunications companies such as AMDOCS and Comverse Infosys. Also Israeli software companies had permitted Mossad unfettered access to credit card and telephone records of FBI counterintelligence special agents. America’s counterintelligence community was trying to do its job with one hand tied behind its back. http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/exclusive1.htm

 

According to 9/11 researcher Christopher Bollyn, there were some 4,000 Israelis expected to be in harm’s way on 9/11 because they were employed by companies housed in the World Trade Center, but they stayed home from work on September 11th.  That is, also working at the Pentagon. Be more specific odds are many more than three Israelis should have been killed or injured on 9/11.

According to two workers at the company Odigo, two hours prior to the 9/11 attacks a warning message in Hebrew was broadcast.   Odigo is an instant messaging service.  The message stating something to the affect/effect that airplanes would hit the buildings and/or it was dangerous to be near places destroyed on 9/11.  This warning message predicted the dangerous incident would happen and was accurate to within minutes.  The FBI has been trying to discover who sent this message.

Micha Macover, CEO of the company, said the two workers received the messages and immediately after the terror attack informed the company’s management.

A 18 September 18, 2001 CNN article reported on one Manhattan synagogue that had lost six of its members in the attacks, five in the towers and one at the Pentagon. A September 21, 2001 ABC News article showed that at (then) last count 400 American Jews were killed in the attack. Snopes.com peremptorily dismisses the well-documented claims that at least some or many Israelis were forewarned about the 9/11 attacks.  However, we are talking about three Israeli citizens killed out of some 4,000.  What are the odds due to chance?

REMEMBER the 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions

 

The omission of reports that both San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown and some Pentagon officials received warnings not to fly any airplanes on 9/11. He got a telephone call late on September 10th advising against flying due to a security threat.  Pacifica Radio reported that Condoleeza Rice was the source of the call to Brown.

 

  1.  In July of 2001, Osama bin Laden spent ten days at the American hospital in Dubai for treatment.  He traveled from Pakistan to Dubai on July 4, 2001, to be treated in the urology department.  While he was in the hospital, Osama was visited by several members of his family, Saudi officials, and the CIA. One visitor was Saudi Prince Turki al Faisal, the head of Saudi intelligence, and the CIA station chief in Dubai, who was soon after recalled back to Washington.

 

Airport security video tapes

 

  1.  Citing Michael Taylor, president of American International Security Corp, Jim Hoffman reports that “Newark airport does have video cameras in its departure lounges.  So does Dulles International Airport.  The FBI has refused to release any video from these airports.”

 

Lewis Schiliro, the former assistant FBI director in charge of the New York field office from 1998 to April 2000, said FBI agents “examined footage from dozens of cameras at the three airports where the terrorists boarded the aircraft.”   http://www.911truth.org/911-misinformation-flight-passenger-lists-show-no-hijacker-names/

 

At 8:20 AM on September 11, 2001, American Airlines Flight 77 took off from Dulles International Airport heading for Los Angeles. The flight was then hijacked by five members of al-Qaeda, who crashed it into the Pentagon at 9:37 AM. A closed-circuit television camera, as the 9/11 Commission reported, captured images of these five hijackers – Hani Hanjour, Nawaf al-Hazmi, Salem al-Hazmi, Khalid al-Mihdhar, and Majed Moqed – passing through the security checkpoint at Dulles airport before boarding AA Flight 77.

 

At the Pentagon crash site, a “Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Student Identity Card” is discovered with alleged hijacker Majed Moqed’s name on it.

 

Here is the link to the video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLEqjpHVPhM

 

Usually security video tapes have the time and date burned into the integral video image by

proprietary equipment according to an authenticated pattern, along with camera identification and the location that the camera covered. This video contained no such data.  Also most 24-hour surveillance cameras use time-lapse photography with one-second intervals in order to meet data storage limitations.  The videotape with images of al-Mihdhar and Moqed was shot at 30 frames per second that is unusual for security cameras.

 

Although Dulles International Airport had over 300 surveillance cameras, the FBI did not release images from any of these other cameras. http://www.consensus911.org/point-video-2/

 

Shortly after arriving at Washington’s Dulles Airport, from which Flight 77 took off, the FBI confiscates a security tape from a checkpoint through which the hijackers passed before boarding the plane. Airport security manager Ed Nelson will later say: “They pulled the tape right away.… They brought me to look at it. They went right to the first hijacker on the tape and identified him. They knew who the hijackers were out of hundreds of people going through the checkpoints. They would go ‘roll and stop it’ and showed me each of the hijackers.… It boggles my mind that they had already had the hijackers identified.… Both metal detectors were open at that time, and lots of traffic was moving through. So picking people out is hard.… I wanted to know how they had that kind of information. So fast,it didn’t make sense to me.”

(TRENTO AND TRENTO, 2006, PP. 37)

 

Only video tape from Portland, Maine to Boston was released in 2005 showing the AA 77 alleged hijackers passing through security checks at Wash/Dallas airport.  There was no date or time stamp on this video tape.

 

The 9/11 Commission report stated “the security checkpoint in Newark and Boston lacked closed circuit video surveillance.   But on Sept. 13, 2001, the LA Times report that former FBI Assistant Director Luis Schiliro stated (FBI) agents examined footage from dozens of cameras at three airports where the alleged terrorist boarded the aircraft.

 

David Brent who installed the security cameras at Dallas Airport, said he was tasked to review footage from over 300 cameras and it took him three weeks working 15 hours a day.   This system retained the video for 30 days.  After view all these, he said he found no video pictures of any of the 9/11 hijackers walking around the Dallas airport. http://www.consensus911.org/point-video-2/

 

  1.  Insider trading and other secret transactions on September 11, 2001

 

In 2006, a professor of Finance from the University of Illinois named Allen Poteshman published an analysis of the airline stock option trades preceding the attacks. This study came to the conclusion that an indicator of long put volume was “unusually high which is consistent with informed investors having traded (insider trading who knew 9/11 was going to happen) in the option market in advance of the attacks.  Long puts are bets that a stock or option will fall in price.

 

The unusually high volume of long puts, purchased on UAL and AMR stock before these stocks declined dramatically due to the 9/11 attacks, are evidence that the traders knew that the stocks would decline. Using statistical techniques to evaluate conditional and unconditional distributions of historical stock option activity, Professor Poteshman showed that the data indicate that informed trading did occur.

 

In January 2010, a team of financial experts from Switzerland published evidence for at least thirteen informed trades in which the investors appeared to have had foreknowledge of the attacks. This study focused again on a limited number of companies but, of those, the informed trades centered on five airline companies and four financial companies. The airline companies were American Airlines, United Airlines and Boeing. Three of the financial companies involved were located in the WTC towers and the fourth was Citigroup, which stood to lose doubly as the parent of both Travelers Insurance and the WTC 7 tenant, Salomon Smith Barney.

 

More recently, in April 2010, an international team of experts examined trading activities of options on the Standard & Poors 500 index, as well as a volatility index of the CBOE called VIX. These researchers showed that there was a significant abnormal increase in trading volume in the option market just before the 9/11 attacks, and they demonstrated that this was in contrast to the absence of abnormal trading volume over periods long before the attacks. The study also showed that the relevant abnormal increase in trading volume was not simply due to a declining market. Their findings were “consistent with insiders anticipating the 9-11 attacks.”

Conclusion

 

In the early days just after 9/11, financial regulators around the world gave testimony to unprecedented evidence for informed trading related to the terrorist attacks of that day. One central bank president (Welteke) said there was irrefutable proof of such trading. The people in charge of the investigations let the suspects off the hook by conducting weak inquiries.

 

The “exhaustive investigations” conducted by the FBI, on which the 9/11 Commission report was based, were clearly bogus. The FBI did not interview the suspects and did not appear to compare notes with the 9/11 Commission to help make a determination if any of the people being investigated might have had ties to al Qaeda.

 

At least three of the suspected informed trades (aka insider trading)  (those of Walker, the Viisage trader, and Wellington Management) involved reasonably suspicious links to Osama bin Laden or his family. (aka the Saudis) Another suspect (Elgindy) was a soon-to-be convicted criminal who had direct links to FBI employees who were later arrested for securities-related crimes.

 

The FBI also claimed in August 2003 that it had no knowledge of hard drives recovered from the WTC, yet this was publicly reported in 2001. According to the people who retrieved the associated data, the hard drives gave evidence for “dirty doomsday dealings.”

 

The evidence for informed trading on 9/11 includes many financial vehicles, from stock options to Treasury bonds to credit card transactions made at the WTC just before it was destroyed. Today we know that financial experts from around the world have provided strong evidence, through established and reliable statistical techniques, that the early expert suspicions were correct, and that 9/11 informed trading did occur. https://wikispooks.com/wiki/Document:9/11_Insider_Trading

 

The Bloomberg News reported that put options on the airlines surged to the phenomenal high of 285 times their average.

 

“Between September 6 and 7, the Chicago Board Options Exchange saw purchases of 4,744 put options on United Airlines, but only 396 call options… Assuming that 4,000 of the options were bought by people with advance knowledge of the imminent attacks, these ‘insiders’ would have profited by almost $5 million.

 

On September 10, 4,516 put options on American Airlines were bought on the Chicago exchange, compared to only 748 calls. Again, there was no news at that point to justify this imbalance;… Again, assuming that 4,000 of these options trades represent ‘insiders,’ they would represent a gain of about $4 million [the above levels of put options were more than six times higher than normal].

 

No similar trading in other airlines occurred on the Chicago exchange in the days immediately preceding Black Tuesday.

 

Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co., which occupied 22 floors of the World Trade Center, saw 2,157 of its October $45 put options bought in the three trading days before Black Tuesday; this compares to an average of 27 contracts per day before September 6. Morgan Stanley’s share price fell from $48.90 to $42.50 in the aftermath of the attacks. Assuming that 2,000 of these options contracts were bought based upon knowledge of the approaching attacks, their purchasers could have profited by at least $1.2 million.

 

Merrill Lynch & Co., with headquarters near the Twin Towers, saw 12,215 October $45 put options bought in the four trading days before the attacks; the previous average volume in those shares had been 252 contracts per day [a dramatic increase of 1200%]. When trading resumed, Merrill’s shares fell from $46.88 to $41.50; assuming that 11,000 option contracts were bought by ‘insiders,’ their profit would have been about $5.5 million.  http://911research.wtc7.net/sept11/stockputs.html

 

After 9/11 many news article were written about investors who had not yet collected more than $2.5 million in profits they made trading options in the stock of United Airlines before the Sept. 11th.  Today January 8, 2017 I could not find via my Google search any news about this money being collected, nor any news other than that reported on or about 2001.

 

David Callahan – executive editor of SmartCEO – submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the SEC regarding the pre-9/11 put options.  The SEC responded by saying they destroyed the potentially responsive records.

  1.  Reinsurance Companies Munich Re of Germany and Swiss Re of Switzerland — the world’s two biggest reinsurers, and the AXA Group of France, all suffered losses on September 11, 2001.  The San Francisco Chronicle estimated liabilities of $1.5 billion for Munich Re and $550 million for the AXA Group.   Trading in shares of Munich Re was almost double its normal level on September 6, and 7, and trading in shares of Swiss Re was more than double its normal level on September 7.

 

AXA also owns more than 25 percent of American Airlines stock making the attacks a “double whammy” for them.  http://www.hermes-press.com/rich2.jpg

 

  1. A German computer company, Convar, was hired by companies hit and destroyed in the World Trade Center buildings restore the data in over 400 computer hard drives and has recovered data from 32 computers so far. They discovered a surge in credit card transactions occurred in the hours before and during the 9/11 attacks.  As a result of the recovered data it looks like insider trading was going on around the time of the 9/11 airplane attacks in order to move out amounts exceeding $100 million.   Somebody thought that records of their transaction could not be traced after the main frames of computer were destroyed.   Convar turned over their suspicious findings to the FBI.

Initial reports on these trades were suppressed and forgotten, and only years later did the 9/11 Commission and SEC provide a partial, but untenable explanation for only a small number of transactions (covering only the airline put options through the Chicago Board of Exchange).

  1.  According to leaked documents from an intelligence file obtained through a military source in the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), on or about September 12, 1991 non-performing and unauthorized gold-backed debt instruments were used to purchase ten-year bonds.  The bonds in turn were illegally employed as collateral to borrow $240 billion (120 in Japanese Yen and 120 in Deutsch Marks) exchanged for US currency under false pretenses; or counterfeit and unlawful conversion of collateral against an unlimited amount of money which could be created in derivatives and debt instruments.

 

This 1991 story related to information about a $240 billion in laundered money that happened on or about 9/11.

The illegal transactions are also linked to the murder of a US Army Colonel Russell Hermann, who was charged with overseeing approximately 175 secret CIA bank accounts, according to the officer’s wife, Mrs. V. K. Durham.  During multiple interviews, Mrs. Durham said that Bush 41 and Clinton administration officials visited her husband several times in the months prior to and three days before his torture and murder on August 29, 1994.  She stated that Col. Hermann believed these funds were the property of the US citizens rather than the private slush fund of the Bush circle, and protested the manner in which they were being used.  Ambassador Leo Wanta has since maintained a similar stance, that the earnings from his covert operations should be public funds rather than covert slush funds used by criminal US presidents.

Durham said $240 billion in stolen currency was obtained resulting from George H. W. Bush’s presidential abuse of power, when he authorized former Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady and former Secretary of State James Baker III to make fraudulent use of the Durham Family Trust collateral without her permission.  There is evidence that Colonel Hermann’s and V. K. Durham’s signatures were forged on a Goldman-Sachs bank account certification requesting the conversions to U.S. currency.

The money was never repaid since the ten-year bonds–purchased before September 13, 1991 using the fraudulent collateral and gold bullion as security, came due on September 12, 2001–the day after the 9.11 attacks.  It had allegedly been underwritten and held by the trustee, Cantor-Fitzgerald bond brokerage firm.  Moreover, Durham alleges that any 10-year bond payoff for notes due on 9-12-2001 would have led to additional evidence of trillions in stolen funds from the US Treasury.

 

Besides the intelligence file leaked to Durham, other documents were obtained by Tom Flocco from whistleblower Stewart Webb’s intelligence sources.

  1.  One of many defying the odds coincidences on 9/11, was that the Federal Reserve Bank operated its information system from its remote backup site rather than its downtown headquarters and all of their systems continued to operate.  Nevertheless, the Securities and Exchange Commission for the first time ever invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) and issued several orders to ease certain regulatory restrictions temporarily.

 

On the first day of the crisis, the SEC lifted “Rule 15c3-3: Customer Protection – Reserves and Custody of Securities.” Thus Government Securities Clearing Corporation (GSCC) was allowed to substitute other securities for the physical securities destroyed during the attack. “…collateral substitutions can and should be made with regard to immediately maturing collateral.” At this point in time, the Federal Reserve and its GSCC had created a settlement environment totally void of controls and reporting.

 

The reports published by the Federal Reserve argue that the Federal Reserve’s actions increasing the monetary supply by over $300 billion were justified but they noted only a few – if any – definitive statements about root cause and the appropriateness (reason) of the Federal Reserve response (increasing the money supply).

 

While the Fed was reporting outstanding account balances of over $100 billion per day (while not identifying the banks involved), the Wall Street Journal reported that at one point during the week after 9/11, Bank of New York (BoNY) was publicly reported to be overdue on $100 billion in payments.  The Deutschebank, which sat inside the WTC and was totally decimated, reported no such account balance increase, and JP Morgan, the other of only two clearing banks which uses the same traders and communications hub, reported no such increase in its account balance.  No one has publicly asked: why is it that these other two banks were not seriously disrupted, while the Bank of New York – which had no structural damage – seemed unable to operate?

 

There were $240 billion in bonds sat for ten years which had to be settled – or cashed in by September 12, 2001.  The two firms in the U.S. most likely to be handling them would be Cantor Fitzgerald and Eurobrokers – the two largest government securities firms in the U.S.  The federal agency mostly involved in investigating those transactions was the Office of Naval Intelligence.  On 9/11, those same three organizations: the two largest government securities brokers and the Office of Naval Intelligence in the US took direct hits.

 

As reported on page twelve of a Federal Reserve document, “In the absence of complete information on deliveries into and out of its account at (Bank of New York) BoNY on September 11, and as a result of its assumption of settlement fails on the starting legs of blind-brokered RPs, GSCC recorded (after the close of business on September 11) $266 billion in transactions that apparently failed to settle.… Continuing connectivity problems prevented GSCC from giving BoNY delivery instructions after the close of business on September 11th and prevented it from acquiring information on activity in its account at BoNY during the day on September 12. Consequently, GSCC recorded $440 billion in settlement fails as of the close of business on September 12th.”

 

What appears to be the case is that the Federal Reserve imbalances reported on three consecutive days in the aftermath were largely concentrated at the Bank of New York, which is reported to represent over 90 percent of the imbalance, suggesting the Bank had been the recipient of massive fund transfers, and unable to send out transfers.  Overall transactions for the day of 9/11 were seemingly down even more significantly than volume, but the transactions that came in after closing were extremely large, averaging in size in packages of $35 million or more.  This would be consistent with a hypothesis that $240 billion of securities were being pushed surreptitiously into the money supply.

 

The Federal Reserve, without providing the detail required to substantiate it’s claims, would have the public believe that there were widespread liquidity issues, when in fact the issues were very concentrated primarily, if not singularly, in the BoNY, which has been the subject of an ongoing major money-laundering investigation for many years. These account balance issues resulted in the defacto expansion of the monetary supply, details of which are no longer reported by the Federal Reserve.

 

The reported cause of this market malfunction is seemingly suspect. By comparison, the

Deutschebank which sat inside the World Trade Center reported no such account balance increase, and JP Morgan, the other of two clearing banks which uses the same traders and communications hub, reported no such increase in account balance.  Additionally, while problems were being documented between the BoNY and GCSS, no other institution had those problems.

 

  • The US dollar money supply was significantly increased in the aftermath of 9/11
  • The bank at the core of the illegal money laundering by ex-Soviet criminals was the source of the increased money supply (BoNY)
  • The generally disseminated rationale for BoNY’s operational problems seems to have affected no other bank in a similar manner or magnitude and is inconsistent with reports on the BoNY operations in the aftermath
  • The source of the BoNY’s $330 billion increase in assets is cloaked under the privilege of “private banking”
  • The only alleged “severe” disruption to the financial systems was the Federal Reserves account balance and the securities trading fails – both systems required to hide the laundering of $240 billion in covert securities

 

This is not ‘proof’ that $240 billion was laundered, but it provides probable cause for paying serious attention.  (Source: Collateral Damage: U.S. Covert Operations and the Terrorist Attacks on 9/11 by E.P. Heidner)

  1. Very suspicious was actions of the Federal Reserve Bank and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on that day, and in the immediate aftermath of 9/11,

As one of many coincidences on September 11th, the Federal Reserve Bank was operating its information system from its remote back-up site rather than its downtown headquarters. The SEC and Federal Reserve System remained unfazed by the attack on September 11. All of their systems continued to operate. The two major security trading firms had their trade data backed up on remote systems. Nevertheless and for the first time, the SEC invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) and issued several orders to ease certain regulatory restrictions temporarily.

On the first day after the September 11, 2001, the SEC lifted Rule 15c3-3 -Customer Protection–Reserves and Custody of Securities, which set up trading rules for certain processes. Simply Government Securities Clearing Corporation was allowed to substitute securities for the physical securities destroyed during the attack.

The Government Securities Clearing Corporation (GSCC) part of the Division of Market Regulation is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission as a securities clearing agency for U.S. government securities. The GSCC provides automated trade comparison, netting, and settlement services for US. GSCC employs a number of risk management procedures that enable it to guarantee settlement of all net settlement positions.  Through its daily mark to the market process, GSCC brings net positions that are not due for settlement from contract value to current market value each day.

Subsequent to that ruling, the GSCC issued another memo expanding blind broker settlements. A blind broke is a mechanism for inter-dealer transactions that maintains the anonymity of both parties to the trade. The broker serves as the agent to the principals’ transactions.

Thus the Federal Reserve and its GSCC had created a settlement environment totally void of controls and reporting where it could substitute valid, new government securities for the mature, illegal securities, and not have to record where the bad securities came from, or where the new securities went all because the paper for the primary brokers for US securities had been eliminated.

As a result the Federal Reserve and the Government Securities Clearing Corporation (GSCC) had created a settlement environment totally void of controls and reporting – where it could substitute valid, new government securities for the mature, illegal securities, and not have to record where the bad securities came from, or where the new securities went – all because the paper for the primary brokers for US securities had been eliminated.

 

Each morning, GSCC collects mark payments from Netting Members that are in a debit mark position and pays such marks to Netting members that are in a credit mark position. In addition another of GSCC’s risk management controls is its Clearing Fund.  The Clearing Fund ensures that, if one or more of its members fails, GSCC has sufficient liquidity at all times to meet its payment and delivery obligations.

 

The Federal Reserve did not have enough “takers” of the new 10 year notes.  Rather than simply having to match buy and sell orders, it appears the Fed was doing more than just matching and balancing – it was pushing new notes on the market with a special auction.  It appears some of the beneficiaries wanted to cash out!

Acute settlement problems with the on-the-run ten-year note led the U.S. Treasury to reopen the issue on October 4 and hold an unusual “snap” auction of new ten-year securities.

If the Federal Reserve had to cover-up the clearance of $240 Billion in covert securities, they could not let the volume of capital shrink by that much in the time of a monetary crisis.  They would have had to push excess liquidity into the market, and then phase it out for a soft landing.  That is exactly what appears to have happened and in about two months, the money supply was back to where it was prior to 911.

In the aftermath of September 11th, the Security and Exchange commission (SEC) appears to have allowed the Bank of New York (BoNY) and the Federal Reserve to engage in securities refinancing that resulted in the American taxpayer refinancing the $240 billion originally used for the Great Ruble Scam.

 

A review of the explanations for the actions of the Federal Reserve after September 11th exposes an amazingly complex web of analysis and speculation.  The reports published by the Federal

 

Reserve argue that the Federal Reserve’s actions increasing the monetary supply by over $300 billion were justified to overcome operational difficulties in the financial sector.

A Federal Reserve report about what happened in the aftermath of the 9/11 attack, indicated that only a few were seriously disrupted.  An analysis of the FED report suggests that any disruptions were essentially concentrated in one bank – the Bank of New York (BoNY).  The same Bank of New York was being investigated for money laundering charges in relation to the economic pillaging of Russia by criminal oligarchs. “At one point during the week after September 11th, BoNY publicly reported to be overdue on $100 billion in payments.”

The Deutsche bank, which sat inside the World Trade Center and was totally decimated, reported no such account balance increase, and JP Morgan, the other of only two clearing banks which uses the same traders and communications hub, reported no such increase in its account balance. No one has publicly asked: why is it that these other two banks were not seriously disrupted, while the Bank of New York – which had no structural damage, seemed unable to operate? Understanding what was happening at the BoNY becomes critical to understanding the securities settlement issues.

The Government Securities Clearing Corporation (GSCC) and several dealers could not verify what came into and what left their custodial accounts at BoNY, they could not advise BoNY of securities they expected to receive, and they could not give BoNY instructions for delivering securities. Additionally, GSCC was unable to verify the movement of funds into and out of its account at BoNY (GSCC Important Notice GSCC068.01).
The Bank of New York (BoNY) operations and the level of disruption experienced on September 11th, were attributed to the loss of the communications hub in downtown Manhattan. The telephone network operations center or hub was decimated when the World Trade Center collapsed onto it.  However, the BoNY Funding Transfer operations, which reportedly could not communicate with the Fed, were located in Utica, New York, and had none of its communication abilities impaired.  Moreover, the four BoNY back-up data centers were all located within 46 miles of Manhattan, and could and did deliver data on tape regularly to the Fed via courier.

The disruptions to the US financial system were not as widespread as the reports from the

Federal Reserve would have the public believe.  The public had to be made to perceive a widespread need for declaring  a national financial emergency, suspending key provisions of the Federal Reserve Act and driving the ‘ten-year special rate’ to almost zero.

Certain key unknown figures in the Federal Reserve may have conspired with key unknown figures at the Bank of New York to create a situation where $240 billion in off balance sheet securities created in 1991 as part of an official covert operation to overthrow the Soviet Union, could be cleared without publicly acknowledging their existence.

These securities, originally managed by Cantor-Fitzgerald, were cleared and settled in the aftermath of September 11th through the BoNY. The $100 billion account balance bubble reported by the Wall Street Journal as being experienced in the BoNY was the tip of a three day operation,  when these securities were moved from off-balance-sheet to the balance sheet.

 

By reducing the ‘ten-year special rate’ to almost zero, the Fed structurally increased the number of refinancing (Repo) settlement fails. Under the umbrella of this artificially created statistical bump of fails, the high level of fails due to the laundering of the $240 billion was able to be processed unnoticed.

The cover for this bubble is found in the footnotes to the BoNY annual and quarterly reports, which report that the BoNY took over $330 billion of commercial securities business from U.S. Trust between June and October of 2001, although the assets under control of U.S. Trust in 2000 were reported as $80 billion to $86 billion.

 

It is clear that the concentration in account balances at the Federal Reserve — rising more than fourteen- fold from its normal levels on the days following the terrorist attacks—was a most unusual event. If a large proportion of the balances in the banking system concentrate in one bank’s account, then other banks will face, all else being equal, higher costs of making payments, or alternatively may face liquidity constraints on their borrowing, which could preclude their submission of further payments.”

A key consideration is the pre-911 daily average for this balance.  These balances and service-related balances for August 2001 averaged $14.65 billion per day. This makes the actual surges due to the 9/11 attack show a net impact of $352 billion on the account balance over the remainder of the week.  What appears to be the case is that the Federal Reserve imbalances reported  on three consecutive days in the aftermath were largely concentrated at the Bank of New York (BoNY), which is reported to represent over 90% of the imbalance, suggesting the Bank had been the recipient of massive fund transfers, and unable to send out transfers.

None of the BoNY’s systems failed or went non-operational.  Todd Gibbons of the BoNY reported an increase in the volume of securities on September 11th saying, “Our contingency plans had included the ability to handle a great amount of excess capacity; and we were able to handle the increase in volumes…”

However, the overall volumes for the day were 25 percent less than normal and one third of the volume or $400 billion came in after normal business hours in very few transactions.  Overall transactions for Sept. 11th were seemingly down even more significantly than volume, but the transactions that came in after closing were extremely large, averaging in size in packages of $35 million or more. This would be consistent with a hypothesis that $240 billion of securities were being pushed surreptitiously into the money supply. Additionally, the conflicting information from the BoNY and Fed suggests the activity in the bank was different that that being reported to the public.

In August 2001, the value of Fedwire funds transfers averaged more than $1.6 trillion per day, The value of funds transfers sent on September 11th  was $1.2 trillion.   (Source:  Liquidity Effects of the Events of September 11, 2001, James J. McAndrews and Simon M. Potter, Federal Reserve Bank of New York Economic Policy Review, November 2002, p65).

The Federal Reserve, without providing the detail required to substantiate its claims, would have the public believe that there were widespread liquidity issues, when in fact the issues were very concentrated primarily, if not singularly, in the BoNY, which has been the subject of an ongoing major money-laundering investigation for many years.

 

What we have is evidence of some people knew how to game the financial system on Sept. 11, 2001.

  1.  Positive identification of the dead

Within the World Trade Center, 1,126 of the 2,751 victims who died had their remains identified.   Over 750 human bone fragments, each less than a half-inch long, were collected from this roof of the Deutsche Bank building 250 feet from the South Tower and is evidence of explosions. http://www.ae911truth.org/en/news-section/41-articles/596-wtc-bone-fragments-still-surface-a-decade-after-911.html

 

The following URL/link reports 2,749. http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/evidence/bodies.html

 

A spokeswoman for the New York Medical Examiner’s Office, said in February 2003 they had received from the FBI DNA “profiles of all ten hijackers… and we have matched two of those profiles to remains that we have.”  In 2005, the number of matched samples increased to three.  They could not be identified by name.    Robert Shaler’s medical examiner’s forensic unit in New York wrote, “Of course, we had no direct knowledge of how the FBI obtained the terrorists’ DNA.”

 

After weeks of combing the area of the crash of UA 93, searchers found “about 1,500 mostly scorched samples of human tissue totaling less than 600 pounds’ or about 8 percent of the total, combined bodily weight of the aircraft’s passengers, crew and hijackers.

Those from the crash of Flight 93 were identified by military authorities.

 

Armed Forces Institute of Pathology issued a report in November of 2001 claiming to have identified 184 of 189 persons killed in the Pentagon attack.

 

FBI experts collected trace evidence to search for chemicals from explosive devices and conducted fingerprint identifications. Forensic dentistry experts from the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology performed dental charting and comparison with before death dental records. Full-body radiographs followed to document skeletal fractures and assist in the identification process, followed by autopsy inspection.

 

The Armed Forces Institute of Pathology issued had tremendous logistical issues obtaining equipment, especially with additional demands in New York City and Somerset County, Pa. Teams of forensic scientists, under the direction of Demris Lee, technical leader of the Nuclear DNA Section, took over the difficult chore of generating a DNA profile of the victims. Their work included not only the Pentagon crash victims, but the victims of the Somerset County crash as well. Every one of the organization’s 102 DNA analysts, sample processors, logistics staff, and administrative personnel were involved — from collecting, tracking, analyzing DNA samples, and gathering and logging DNA reference material to preparing DNA reports. For 18 days following the terrorist attacks, AFDIL employees worked on 12-hour shifts, seven days a week to meet the mission requirements.

“As George Nelson, Colonel, USAF, retire, pointed out that none of the found parts have part numbers or serial numbers on them; not at the Pentagon and not at Pennsylvania! “

 

“For production control, manufacturers stamp such ‘part’ numbers on virtually EVERY piece of an aircraft. The major components are found with the manufacturer’s serial numbers. Clearly, someone went to a lot of trouble to ‘sanitize’ the 9-11 pieces.  Anyone with experience around aircraft accidents will cite the total lack of serial-numbered parts is impossible.” http://home.comcast.net/~skydrifter/exp.htm

 

  1.   A Nov. 26, 2007 FOIA request of the Federal Aviation Administration for the last known serial numbers of the flight data recorders and other components on the aircraft was denied.  Why?

With flight data recorder serial numbers one can trace an installed device to a particular registered aircraft through manufacturer or airline records. http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=11066)

 

 

  1.  Four missing black boxes from UA 174 and American Airlines flight 11 (AA 11) that hit the Twin Towers.  These black boxes are almost always located after crashes, even if not in useable condition and the cleanup of the World Trade Center was meticulous.  New York City firefighters, Mike Bellone and Nicholas De Masi, claimed they had found three of these four boxes and that Federal agents took them and told the two men not to mention having found them.  The FBI denies this.

 

66B. A software developer Indira Singh was hired by J.P. Morgan-Chase to make sure its computers could not be hacked (or set up software used to detect and prevent fraud by employees of the bank).  She learned about a company Ptech and tried to blow the  whistleblower about this company being owned and run by  the chief investor, Sheikh Yassin al-Qadi, who was on the U.S. terror watch list.  “Yasin al-Qadi, according to the U.S. Treasury Department, ‘heads the Saudi-based Muwafaq Foundation…an al-Qaeda front that receives funding from wealthy Saudi businessmen.’ The Treasury has thus identified the prominent entrepreneur as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT). Also Yaqub Mirzawas is (was?) on the Board of Directors.   Yaqub Mirza,(sp?) who was on the board of directors of the company and was himself a target of a US Customs [operation Greenquest investigation of ] terrorist financing raid in March 2002.

 

According to FBI whistleblower Robert Wright, his investigation into Yasin al-Qadi during the 1990s was “intentionally and repeatedly thwarted and obstructed” by higher ups at the FBI.

“According to Agent Robert Wright, who seized $1.4 million directly linked to al-Qadi in 1998, ‘FBI intelligence agents lied and hid vital records from criminal agents for the purpose of obstructing his criminal investigation of the terrorists in order to protect their ‘subjects,’ and prolong their intelligence operations,’ as reported by the group representing Wright, Judicial Watch. Operation Greenquest appears to have been heavily based on the pre-9/11 investigations of FBI agent Robert Wright.

 

“”The supervisor who was there from headquarters was right straight across from me and started yelling at me: ‘You will not open criminal investigations. I forbid any of you. You will not open criminal investigations against any of these intelligence subjects,’” Agent Wright told ABC News in 2002.

 

REMEMBER the 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions

 

The omission of Coleen Rowley’s claim that some officials at FBI headquarters did see the memo from Phoenix agent Kenneth Williams.

 

The omission of Chicago FBI agent Robert Wright’s charge that FBI headquarters closed his case on the terrorist cell, then used intimidation to prevent him from a book reporting his experiences.

Prior to being publicly connected to money laundering and terrorist financing, al-Qadi regularly spoke of his relationship with Vice President Dick Cheney.

And Ptech was working on the computer or internet systems of the highest levels of almost every government and military and defense organization in the US.

 

 

Indira Singh (a whistleblower in this matter) said: There was a reference to PTech having operated in the basement out of the FAA with complete and total access to every operational detail including their management of interoperability systems with NORAD, that could have directly affected the response of NORAD on 9/11.

 

PTech’s competitors, US companies, were extremely annoyed at the fact that they could not get US government contracts. All the plum contracts were going to a foreign-owned company. The US government failed to investigate Ptech in October 2001 and didn’t start it’s investigation until August 2002.

 

 The FBI was slow to respond to legitimate allegations that an outside contractor with terrorist ties may have infiltrated government computers. On May 13, 2003, John Ashcroft and Tom Ridge signed a Memorandum of Agreement between the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, giving the FBI unprecedented unilateral control of all terrorist-financing investigations and operations and an incredibly powerful position over Homeland Security.

REMEMBER the 9/11 Commission Report Omissions and Distortions

 

The omission of the 3.5 hours of testimony to the Commission by former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds–testimony that, according to her later public letter to Chairman Kean, revealed serious 9/11-related cover-ups by officials at FBI headquarters.

 

The omission of evidence that ISI chief Ahmad had ordered $100,000 to be sent to Mohamed Atta prior to 9/11.   And the omission of the report that the Bush administration pressured Pakistan to dismiss Ahmad as ISI chief after the appearance of the story that he had ordered ISI money sent to Mohamed Atta.

 

 

Now we know that the majority of the alleged 9/11 hijackers were Saudi Arabians.  We have information from the 28 pages cover-up, that a Saudi family in Florida was giving money to the alleged hijackers.

 

CIA and FBI Harass US Customs Investigators

Counterterrorism expert Rita Katz is said to have given the Operation Greenquest investigators some of the information that led to the March 20, 2002 SAAR network raid. The Sulaiman Abdul Aziz al-Rajhi (SAAR) network (aka Safa Group) is made up of a Saudi banker and billionaire who largely funded the group beginning in the early 1980s (see July 29, 1983). He is said to be close to the Saudi ruling family and is on the Golden Chain, a list of early al-Qaeda supporters (see 1988-1989). [New York Times, 3/21/2002; Farah, 2004, pp. 152; Wall Street Journal, 6/21/2004]

Rita Katz will later write that in the months after that raid, “The CIA was investigating me and the SAAR investigators from Greenquest and Customs. The CIA and the FBI investigated everyone who had anything to do with the SAAR investigation. White vans and SUV’s with dark windows appeared near all the homes of the SAAR investigators. All agents, some of whom were very experienced with surveillance, knew they were being followed. So was I. I felt that I was being followed everywhere and watched at home, in the supermarket, on the way to work… and for what?… The Customs agents were questioned. So were their supervisors. So was the US attorney on the SAAR case.… Risking criticism for being unfoundedly paranoid, I must convey my theory about the investigation and CIA’s involvement in it, I don’t know for certain what’s the deal with the CIA investigating the SAAR investigators, but it sure feels as if someone up in that agency doesn’t like the idea that the Saudi Arabian boat is rocked. The [SAAR raid] had taken place already—the CIA couldn’t change that—but investigating and giving the people behind the raids a hard time is a most efficient way of making sure the SAAR investigation stops there.”  Source: http://historycommons.org/entity.jsp?entity=operation_greenquest

 

And the other company linked to Israel Mossad.

Israel military intelligence is connected to brothers, Amit and Elad Yoran. Amit was the co-founder, President and CEO of Riptech, Ins.  This cumputer/internet security company that specialized in hacking into companies’ computer in order to test security against hacking including, the Department of Defense and US Department of Homeland Security.  The Israel Mossad poured millions of dollars into Riptech. Elad Yoran is (or was)  the CEO of Security Growth Partners.

 

REMEMBER the 9/11 Commission Report Omissions and Distortions

 

The failure to mention that the report that a large jet crashed in Kentucky, at about the time Flight AA 77 disappeared from FAA radar, was taken seriously enough by the heads of the FAA and the FBI’s counterterrorism unit to be relayed to the White House.  A large jet did not crash in Kentucky.

NORAD reported eleven aircraft off course or out of communication and they were thinking about putting a hold on all takeoffs and landing in New York and Washington DC.

 

The failure to explain, if NORAD’s earlier report that it was notified about Flight 77 at 9:24 was “incorrect,” how this erroneous report could have arisen, i.e., whether NORAD officials had been lying or simply confused for almost three years.

 

The failure to probe the issue of how the war games scheduled for that day were related to the military’s failure to intercept the hijacked airliners.   The US Air Force war games Vigilant Guardian, Vigilant Warrior, Northern Guardian, had to do with hijacked airliners inside the continental United States, specifically within the northeast air defense sector where all four 9/11 hijackings occurred. the first phone call about a real hijacking made officers in the air defense headquarter wonder.  One even said:  “Somebody started the exercise early.  The hijack is not supposed to be for another hour.”

 

According to the tape recordings of the air defense there were virtual inserts on the screens as long as 9.30 AM, meaning no one stopped the exercise while hijackings were in progress.

 

In Air War Over America it is documented that General Arnold of NORAD said , “we didn’t pull out of  Vigilant Guardian until reports of flight (UA) 93 being hijacked were coming in. That was at 9:16 AM, a total of 54 minutes after it was known that flight (AA)11 was a hijacking.  The FAA reported flight 11 was heading to Washington D.C. at that time when in fact it had already struck the World Trade Center.  The 9/11 Commission’s report stated they were “unable to locate the source of the mistaken FAA information.”
(Source:  Air War Over America: Sept. 11 Alters Face Of Air Defense Mission by Leslie Filson)

Richard Clarke discussed on C-Span that one possible scenario of a cyber warfare attack, for example, could be such using a cyber warfare attack putting false radar returns on the Syrian Air Defense radars in conjunction with an actual Israeli Air Force bombing attack via Turkey, on the Syrian nuclear reactor, a suspected of being a North Korean–designed nuclear weapons plant.  And in so doing, not one Syrian anti-aircraft missile was fired at the attacking Israeli jet.

And why would the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff General Richard B. Myers, USAF, allow all the counter hijack exercises to take place given all the pre-9/11 warnings of a very high threat from a real of a terrorist attack.   Richard Clarke  “considered the threat sufficiently important to direct every counterintelligence office to cancel vacations and get ready for immediate action, the Post reported.”  http://makethemaccountable.com/whatwhen/Q01_WhySomeWarned.htm

 

 

Another part of these hijack scenarios exercises.  There was also an Air Force exercise called Vigilant Warrior and it was being run by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Richard B. Myers and NORAD.   The word “Warrior” means the exercise was approved and controlled by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General at the National Military Command Center (NMCC).  He had to be the General who stopped this exercise when commercial airliner was out of radio contact with the air traffic controllers, so FAA required Air Force to scramble, intercept and evaluate the situation to rule out a hijacking.

 

The goal of this Live Fly exercise was to test communications between FAA air traffic controllers, NEADS, to test how long it would take to get jets into the sky when the situation was confused by a second simulated hijacked airplane headed to the US from the Atlantic Ocean, and to test communication in order to get permission from the National Command Authority (Bush, Rumsfeld or Cheney) to shoot them down.

 

This exercise was a “live fly” exercise.  It involved at least one real commercial or military aircraft being flown to simulate a hijack emergency that actually happened on 9/11, commercial jets.  Major Don Arias of NORAD confirmed this information.

 

A close reading of key news stories published in the Spring of 2004 revealed for the first time that some of these drills were “live-fly” exercises where actual aircraft, were simulating the behavior of hijacked airliners in real life.  All of this as the real attacks began.  The fact of these exercises had never been systematically and thoroughly explored in the mainstream press.

 

Mike Ruppert says, he has an on-the-record statement from someone in NORAD that on the day of 9/11 The Joint Chiefs of Staff (Richard B. Myers) and NORAD were conducting a

joint, live-fly, hijack Field Training Exercise (FTX) which involved at least one (and almost certainly many more) aircraft under US control that was posing as a hijacked airliner”.

In May of 2001, by Presidential order, Vice President Dick Cheney was put in direct command and control of all war-game and field exercise training and scheduling through several agencies, especially FEMA.

 

 

 

  1.  Susan Lindauer asserts that she was hired by and worked as a back channel with Iraq for the CIA from 1995 until 2003.  She became a member of a peace group that was protesting the 1990 UN sanctions against Iraq following the first Gulf War. These sanctions banned all trade and financial resources except for medicine and “in humanitarian circumstances” foodstuffs. There was a high rate of disease in Iraq during the sanctions due to the lack of liquid chlorine to disinfect their water because it was banned from importation to Iraq. The estimates of civilian deaths during these sanctions range from 100,000 to over 1.5 million people.

 

  • UNICEF: As of 1999 children under 5 years of age are dying at more than twice the rate they were ten years before.
  • Former U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq Denis Halliday: “Two hundred thirty-nine thousand children 5 years old and under” as of 1998.

 

Because of her protest activities against the US sanctions Iraq, the CIA recruited her to develop rapport with Iraqi officials who worked at the UN. I assume the CIA felt her protest activities she would find the Iraqis at their US embassy would be willing to talk to her.  She was tasked from August, 1996 to work as a secret US back channel contract with the Iraqi government as the US had no diplomatic relations with Iraq.

 

New York Times Magazine journalist David Samuels reported that Lindauer said in November 1993 she met with a woman for dinner who was a friend of her father. The women brought along with her, Paul Hoven.  He is a guy who has a long history of working for the CIA.  He was/is most likely a CIA officer and not a contract agent.  Lindaurer said, not long after their first dinner, Hoven introduced her to his friend Dr. Richard Fuisz, describing him ”my contact in the CIA.”

 

David Samuels interviewed Dr. Richard C. Fuisz, who was/is a psychiatrist, and Fuisz said he saw Lindauer about once a week on average between 1994 and 2001 and that she would drop by to talk to him about her personal life as well as about her contacts with the Libyans and the Iraqis. What is Fuisz did not say was whether or not Lindauer was seeing him in his role of psychiatrist. Fuisz had worked briefly in the White House under Lyndon Johnson and he holds more than two hundred patents worldwide, in such diverse fields as Pharmaceuticals, computer software, and cryptography.

 

Fuisz agreed to talk to Samuels about Lindauer after requesting that his son, Joe, a lawyer, be present for our conversation. He said, ”Susan, to me, is one of those people who drift into your life.  ‘She would drift into the office fairly often, or call. Usually those weren’t just social calls. Those were calls about what she was doing, or trying to do. In the early years, her activism generally took an approach which was Arabist, but Arabist from the standpoint of trying to lift sanctions, so that children would do better, and trying to get medicines into countries — principally I’m talking about Iraq and Libya.”

 

After September 11, 2001, Lindauer was no longer a welcome visitor to his office.  Fuisz said, ”Susan, in her discussions, went from benign, in my opinion, to malignant. These discussions changed and now involved a very strong seditious bent. …To understand Lindauer’s unlikely walk-on role in the history of the Iraq war, it is necessary to reverse your normal angle of vision and to imagine how she might have looked through the eyes of the diplomats and intelligence operatives who staffed the Iraqi Mission to the United Nations under Saddam Hussein…. She had solid credentials to recommend her.  (She was) an aide to congressmen and senators who held a graduate degree from the London School of Economics, she was also the cousin of the White House chief of staff.”

 

Lindauer had a master’s degree in public policy from the London School of Economics.  She then was a reporter and researcher at US News & World Report in 1990 and 1991. She worked on the staff of Representative Peter DeFazio, DOregon (1993) and then Representative Ron Wyden, DOregon (1994) before joining the office of Senator Carol Moseley Braun, DIllinois, where she worked as a press secretary and speechwriter.

 

According to Samuels Fuisz did not comment on the specifics of the conversations that Lindauer claimed to have had with Middle Eastern diplomats or whether he passed on the specifics of those conversations to anyone else.   Yet, She said she was tasked from August, 1996 to work as a secret US back channel contract with the Iraqi government as the US had no diplomatic relations with Iraq.

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/08/29/magazine/susan-lindauer-s-mission-to-baghdad.html?_r=0

 

Susan Lindauer said that in April and May 2001 she was tasked by her CIA case officer Dr. Richard Fuisz to go to the UN in New York and talk to Iraqi diplomats and confront/demand any knowledge they may have had about any possible future airplane hijackings and airplane bombings.   She was told to threaten the Iraqis with an invasion/war by the US (I assume she means to threaten them into disclosing anything they knew about a pending terrorist attack on the US).   Over the summer of 2001 Lindauer had weekly meetings with Fuisz.

 

Lindauer states that in June 2001 her CIA team identified the World Trade Center as the target of the attack.  They had “weekly meetings and at “practically every meeting” they talked about this attack.”  She was warned on August 2, 2001 not to go into New York City by Dr. Fuisz.   On order from CIA her boss, Dr. Richard Hughes, Lindauer claims she called the office of Attorney General John Ashcroft on about August 8, 2001.   And her office “put out an Emergency Broadcast Alert throughout all agencies about any information regarding airplane hijackings specifying an attack on World Trade Center.”

 

Lindauer said she was told by CIA boss, Dr. Richard Hughes to stay out of New York because they expected a massive casualties terrorist attack. Lindauer states that in June 2001 her CIA team identified the World Trade Center as the target of the attack.

 

In the summer of 2001, Susan Lindauer’s younger brother John told David Samuels, that his sister told him “that Lower Manhattan would be destroyed. And I was like, Yeah, whatever.”  Six weeks later two planes had crashed into the twin towers.

 

Parke Godfrey, a close friend of Lindauer’s for the last 15 years, is a professor of computer science at York University in Ontario. He says that Lindauer warned him not to take a job at N.Y.U. the summer before the Sept. 11 attacks.

 

After the September 11, 2001 attacks, Lindauer became a frequent visitor to the Iraqi Mission in New York. During a Sept. 18, 2001 trip to the mission, she said had a short, tense conversation with Iraqi Ambassador Hasan’s successor, Ambassador Mohammed Al-Douri, in the embassy foyer. Lindauer said he told Ambassador Mohammed Al-Douri, ”There’s starting to be talk in Washington about Iraq’s possible involvement in this attack.”

 

And she said, Al-Douri replied. ”It is not possible. It is the Mossad who says this. Lindauer said, “The ambassador (Al-Douri) sounded abrupt and confident and stern.  He said, “Of course! We are ready for talks at any time.”

 

Lindauer also ”received a communication from Baghdad addressed to her and she described the message saying that the panic-stricken Iraqis were willing to ”meet any American official in a covert or non-covert manner to discuss the common issues.”

 

On December 2, 2001 Lindauer wrote a letter her second cousin to Andrew Card who was White House Chief of Staff to convey further news: The Iraqis were willing to permit the return of weapons inspectors and offered other concessions. ”These are not intended to limit the universe of possibilities, Andy,” she wrote.

 

The indictment against Lindauer stated that she delivered a letter “to the home of a United States government official” on Jan. 8, 2003.  A government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the government official was Andrew Card.  The indictment stated in the letter she described her access to members of dictator Saddam Hussein’s regime “in an unsuccessful attempt to influence United States policy.”  Andrew Card told the FBI that Lindauer had tried to contact him on behalf of the former regime several times.  http://www.foxnews.com/story/2004/03/12/american-charged-with-being-paid-iraqi-intel-agent.html

 

In February 2002, soon after President Bush delivered his State of the Union address naming Iraq part of an ”axis of evil,” the Iraqis invited Lindauer to Baghdad. ”It was beautiful,” she said of Al Rashid Hotel, where she stayed between her meetings with Iraqi officials. ”I had a suite, so it was very nice.”

 

She wouldn’t tell David Samuels who she met with or why, She said she met the Iraqis in a room and she felt uncomfortable because of the mirrors in the room.”

 

Lindauer claims that after 9/11 there were ongoing peace negotiations and Saddam agreed to give US corporation’s construction contracts for health care and drug companies, transportation, and telecommunications. Iraqi diplomats asked her, “What is it America wants? They said they would give the US anything to prevent a US invasion.  They even offered to buy one million American cars for ten or twenty years. Saddam also offered to gave the FBI financial documents proving that Islamic terrorism was being financed heroin trafficking in the Middle East and these documents would have helped the US shut down this drug trafficking. However, the US did not want to take the records.

 

Lindauer was arrested in March 11, 2004 and indicted after she volunteered to testify before a blue ribbon commission on pre-war intelligence on Iraq.  Lindauer approached Trent Lott of Mississippi and John McCain of Arizona with her offer of testimony about intelligence. It was after she made her approach that she was arrested on charges of acting on behalf of Iraq’s government. After initially evaluating Lindauer, a court appointed psychiatrists in New York argued that her claims of innocence and story about working for the CIA were signs of delusional thinking and therefore too insane to stand trial. .

That correct, She tells her story to the psychiatrist says she can produce witnesses to verify her statement. And the court claims that she is moon-bat crazy!  Fool-kin unreal.

 

She was held in a federal mental hospital for over a year due to this trumped up psychological examines to keep her from speaking publicly about her story and she was denied a speedy trial which she was demanding. During her stay at the mental hospital the psychiatrist rule she was not mentally ill.

 

After nearly five years, on January 16, 2009 the government decided to not go ahead with the prosecution saying “prosecuting Lindauer would no longer be in the interests of justice.”

(Source: Extreme Prejudice by Susan Lindauer)

—————

The following is evidence that support Susan Lindauer’s story that the Dr. Richard Fuisz was a CIA officer or her CIA handler/case officer.

Before I get into that, Lindaurer was accused by the US Justice Department of failing to register herself formally as a lobbyist and by supposedly following instructions from Iraqi diplomats and intelligence agents at the United Nations, and that Lindauer had been acting as ”an unregistered agent of a foreign government (Iraq)” a violation of federal law that is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Lindauer acknowledges that the meetings detailed in the federal indictment took place, but denies acting as an agent of Iraq or any other country.

 

The federal indictment filed against her by the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, stated she repeatedly violated US law beginning in 1999 by meeting with Iraqi diplomats at the Iraqi Mission to the United Nations in New York and with agents of Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS). She was also indicted for accepting money from the Iraqis and traveling to Baghdad, where she met with Iraqi intelligence agents, in violation of federal law. ”From on or about Feb. 23, 2002, through on or about March 7, 2002,” the indictment charged, ”Susan Lindauer, aka ‘Symbol Susan,’ met with several IIS officers in Iraq, including at the Al-Rashid Hotel in Baghdad, and received cash payments of approximately $5,000.00.”

 

Dr Richard Fuisz’s was an international businessman, who worked in the USSR and across the Middle East during the 1980s and 1990s. As well as having a very successful inventor who founded a medical technology company, he ran training programs for the Saudi military, supplied computers with a secret spying capability to the unwitting Soviets (via Raisa Gorbachev).

 

Fuisz was interested purchasing a heavy equipment company when he was given a tour of the Terex plant in Motherwell, Scotland in September 1987. Fuisz stated the plant manager for Terex’s Scotland factory told him that the trucks were going to be used as Scud missile launchers by Iraqi military, and that they were being smuggled by modifying their serial numbers to disguise them as civilian mining vehicles. When Fuisz questioned Terex Vice President David Langevin about the vehicles, he claims he was told that the shipments had been requested by the CIA, with the cooperation of British intelligence. Fuisz’s allegations were corroborated by a former Terex employee also interviewed by the House Committee.

 

In January 1992, The New York Times published an article by journalist Seymour Hersh alleging that US intelligence had helped to arm the Iraqi military during the 1990 to 1991 Gulf War, naming Dr. Richard Fuisz as its primary source. The article described an affidavit Fuisz had submitted to the Operations Subcommittee of US House Committee on Agriculture.  Fuisz claimed that he had attempted to bring an illegal sale of trucks by Terex company to the attention of the House Committee on Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations in 1987, but committee chairman John Dingell had refused to act – Terex was (at the time) owned by General Motors (GM), a major political constituent in Dingell’s home state of Michigan, and Dingell’s wife was the granddaughter of a GM founder and a senior officer in the company’s governmental relations department.

 

Both Terex and the CIA immediately denied any military relationship with Iraq, and in April 1992, Terex filed a $15 million libel suit against Hersh and Fuisz, claiming that Fuisz fabricated the story as retaliation against the company for declining to enter into a business deal.

 

In March 1993, the Department of Justice filed a Statement of Interest in the trial and invoked the state secrets privilege to bar Fuisz from testifying in his own defense.  The gag order claimed that the information Fuisz possessed was vital to the “nation’s security or diplomatic relations”, and could not be revealed “no matter how compelling the need for, and relevance of, the information”, while empowering the government to “protect its interests in this case in the future” (effectively gagging Fuisz permanently). In October 1994, the US District Court for the District of Columbia upheld the Justice Department’s claim of state secrets privilege and by 1996 the suit had been dismissed.

 

In 1998, Susan Lindauer submitted an affidavit to the United Nations she claimed that Dr. Richard Fuisz told her that the Libyan government was wrongly accused of involvement in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing.  He knew this because he had infiltrated a network of Syrian terrorists tied to Iranian Hezbollah who had kidnapped the American hostages and that person who blew up the PAN Am 103 was Ahmed Jabril a Syrian PFLP-GC terrorist.  Lindauer stated that Fuisz told her he was “first on the ground” in the investigation of the Lockerbie bombing because of his extensive contacts in Syria, but the CIA was destroying his reports instead of submitting them to investigators.

 

In 1994, several months after she first met with Fuisz, Lindauer met with Libyan diplomats in New York in order to share with them the story she claims she got from Fuisz. She says she hoped her story would clear Libya of responsibility for the attack.

 

In the first of two depositions regarding Fuisz’s knowledge of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing was held in December 2000, Fuisz was prohibited from answering questions regarding the relationship between his Russian businesses and the CIA, but when asked if Folkon did any work for the CIA, whether it received any money from the CIA, or whether there were any links between the CIA and any of the companies operated by Fuisz, US Attorney Anthony Coppolino raised objections precluding Fuisz’s testimony on the grounds of state secrets privilege.  Fuisz is president of Folkon Ltd., an oil exploration company.

 

Fuisz confirmed that he had received multiple briefings from CIA agents in 1989 in which they informed him, that the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command (PFLP-GC) was responsible for the bombings; he further claimed that between 1990 and 1995 he was told separately by 10 to 15 high level Syrian officials, who were in regular contact with Ahmed Jibril, that the Palestinian group was to blame, though he was prohibited from clarifying the nature of his relationship to these officials. In spite of Fuisz’s deposition, Megrahi a citizen from Libya was sentenced to life imprisonment by the Scottish Court in the Netherlands in January 2001.

 

In the second deposition, held in January 2001, when asked to describe Fuisz’s interactions with high-level Soviet officials, Fuisz claimed to have difficulty separating information gained in his capacity as director of his businesses from information gained in “his employment by the government”, and that he was “prohibited by a contract with the government” from providing further clarification.

 

In May of that year, the Scottish newspaper Sunday Herald published an article alleging that Fuisz was the CIA Station Chief in Damascus during the 1980s. When asked to comment on the Herald’s claim and on his relationship to the CIA more generally, Fuisz remarked that “This is not an issue I can confirm or deny. I am not allowed to speak about these issues. In fact, I can’t even explain why I can’t speak about these issues.”

 

In December 2003, a 12,000 page dossier submitted by the Sunday Herald to the United Nations revealed that Terex, along with more than twenty other American firms, had in fact supplied Iraq with weapons technology during the 1990s; Scottish Labour MP Tam Dalyell called the document “of huge significance” in exposing “the hypocrisy of Blair and GHW Bush.”

  1.  Sibel Edmonds, a Turkish American who worked as a Turkish language translator for the FBI, listened into hundreds of sensitive intercepted conversations while based at the agency’s Washington field office. Toward the end of 2001, Edmonds was asked to translate some of the thousands of calls that had been recorded by this operation, some dating back to 1997.

 

Among the hours of covert tape recordings, she says she heard evidence that Marc Grossman the third highest ranking official in the US State Department and former US Ambassador to Turkey, was being paid by Turkish agents in Washington who were selling the information on to black market buyers, including Pakistan.  Edmonds stated that Marc Grossman was involved in efforts to provide US nuclear secrets to Pakistan and Israel. She suggests this was done through Turkish contacts and Pakistani contacts, including the former head of Pakistan’s ISI who provided funding to alleged 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta.   Edmonds said: “He was aiding foreign intelligence services against US interests by passing them highly classified information, not only from the State Department, but also from the Pentagon, in exchange for money, position and political objectives.”

 

She said “I told the FBI that that Marc Grossman disclosed that Brewster Jennings was a CIA front company to the target of an FBI investigation.  This was three years before journalist Robert Novak outed Valerie Plame-Wilson as a CIA operative in his newspaper column.  The fact that the CIA was still using Brewster Jennings as their counter-proliferation front company after this compromise, makes me think the shadow CIA was keeping the CIA in the dark about this.

 

Grossman, who is both an American and Israeli citizen, was close to the American Turkish Council (ATC) founded in 1994 as a sister organization to the American Israel Political Action Committee (AIPAC). Its founders include neoconservatives involved in the Israel-Turkey relationship, including Richard Perle and Douglas Feith, as well as Henry Kissinger, Brent Snowcroft and former congressman Stephen Solarz. (Perle and Feith had earlier been registered lobbyists for Turkey through Feith’s company, International Advisors Inc. Parle was at one point making $ 600,000 per year from such activity). Edmonds says this is “an association in name and in charter only, the reality is that it and other affiliated associations are the U.S. government, lobbyists, foreign agents, and Military Industrial Complex.” (M. Christine Vick of Grossman’s

 

Cohen Group serves on the Board of Advisors.) Grossman is also close to the American Turkish Association (ATA), and regularly speaks at its events.

 

The both ATA and ATC have been targets of FBI investigations because of their suspected ties with drug smuggling, but Edmonds claims she heard wiretaps connecting ATC with other illegal activities, some related to 9/11. The CIA has investigated it in connection with the smuggling of nuclear secrets and material. Valerie Plame and the CIA front group Brewster Jennings were monitoring it when Bush administration officials leaked her identity in July 2003. Edmonds, Giraldi, and researchers Christopher Deliso and Luke Ryland accuse him of suspiciously enriching himself while in government service. Nevertheless he was awarded the Foreign Service’s highest rank when President Bush appointed him to the rank of Career Ambassador in 2004, and received Secretary of State’s Distinguished Service Award the following year.

 

Sibel Edmonds says that there was a curious failure of the government before 9/11 to act upon intelligence pertaining to an al-Qaeda attack.  During her time at the FBI (September 20, 2001 to March 22, 2002) she discovered that intelligence material had been deliberately allowed to accumulate without translation; that inept translators were retained and promoted; and that evidence for traffic in nuclear materials was ignored. More shockingly, she charges that Grossman arranged for Turkish and Israeli Ph.D. students to acquire security clearances to Los Alamos and other nuclear facilities; and that nuclear secrets they acquired were transmitted to Pakistan and to Abdul Qadeer Khan, the “father of the Islamic bomb,” who in turn was selling nuclear technology to Libya and other nations.

 

On Oct. 18, 2002,  Attorney General John Ashcroft invokes the State Secrets Privilege (requested not by Justice Department but by State department) in order to prevent disclosure of the nature of Edmonds’ work on the grounds that it would endanger national security, and asked that her wrongful termination suit be dismissed. In effect places Edmonds under a gag order.

 

Attorney General Ashcroft again invoking the State Secrets Privilege, files a motion calling for

 

Edmonds’ deposition in Burnett v. Al Baraka case be suppressed and for the entire case to be dismissed. The judge, seeking more information, orders government to produce any unclassified material relating to the case. In response, Ashcroft submits further statements to justify the use of the State Secrets Privilege.

 

On May 13, 2004, Ashcroft retroactively classifies all material that had been provided to Senate Judiciary Committee in 2000 relating to Edmond’s lawsuit, as well as the senator’s’ letters that had already been posted on line by the Project on Government Oversight.

 

In 2004, Grossman achieves Foreign Service’s highest rank when President Bush appoints him to rank of Career Ambassador.

  1.  On October 12, 2001, New York Times reporter Judith Miller opened a letter mailed to her New York Times office that contained white powfer.  The FBI and US postal inspectors have responded to thousands of “white powder events” and targets have included government offices, US embassies, banks and news organizations. Prosecutors claimed that Miller and her colleague Philip Shenon, on December 3, 2001, telephoned the Holy Land Foundation alerting it that the FBI suspected it was links to terrorism and was planning to search the premises of this alleged charity organization.

 

The White House propaganda blitz was launched on September 7, 2002, at a Camp David press conference. British Prime Minister Tony Blair stood side by side with his co-conspirator, President George W. Bush. Together, they declared that evidence from a report published by the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) showed that Iraq was “six months away” from building nuclear weapons.

On the following day on September 8, 2002, Judith Miller reported in the Sunday New York Times  wrote, “Iraq has stepped up its quest for nuclear weapons and has embarked on a worldwide hunt for materials to make an atomic bomb, Bush administration officials said today.”   Miller added the phrase “The first sign of a ‘smoking gun,’ [these administration officials] argue, may be a mushroom cloud.”

 

The same day Vice President Cheney made the rounds on the Sunday talk shows to advance the administration’s bogus claims. On NBC’s Meet the Press, Cheney declared that Iraq had purchased aluminum tubes to make enriched uranium.  He said, “There’s a story in The New York Times this morning, and I want to attribute The Times.”

 

It didn’t matter that the IAEA refuted this claim both before and after it was made.

 

Headline:  U.S. Says Hussein Intensifies Quest for A-Bomb Parts,” by Judith Miller and Michael R. Gordon, September 8, 2002.

 

These reporters quoted Ahmed al-Shemri (a pseudonym), who contends that he worked in Iraq’s chemical weapons program before defecting in 2000. ” ‘All of Iraq is one large storage facility,’ said Shemri, who claimed to have worked for many years at the Muthanna State Enterprise, once Iraq’s chemical weapons plant.” The authors quote Shemri as stating that Iraq is stockpiling “12,500 gallons of anthrax, 2,500 gallons of gas gangrene, 1,250 gallons of aflatoxin, and 2,000 gallons of botulinum throughout the country.”

 

However, UN weapons inspectors had earlier stated and US weapons inspectors confirmed in September 2003, none of these claims were true.

 

Headline:  U.S. Faulted Over Its Efforts to Unite Iraqi Dissidents, by Judith Miller, October 2, 2002.

 

“The INC [Iraqi National Congress] has been without question the single most important source of intelligence about Saddam Hussein.” …”Iraqi dissidents and administration officials complain that [the State Department and CIA] have also tried to cast doubt on information provided by defectors Mr. Chalabi’s organization has brought out of Iraq.”

 

Miller quoted Ahmed Chalabi and Defense Department adviser Richard Perle.

 

Ahmed Chalabi was bought and paid for by the CIA. Chalabi heads the INC, an organization of Iraqi exiles created by the CIA in 1992 with the help of the Rendon Group, a powerful public relations firm that has worked extensively for the two Bush administrations. Between 1992 and 1996, the CIA covertly funneled $12 million to Chalabi’s INC. In 1998, the Clinton administration gave Chalabi control of another $98 million of U.S. taxpayer money. Chalabi’s credibility has always been questionable: He was convicted in absentia in Jordan of stealing some $500 million from a bank he established, leaving shareholders high and dry. He has been accused by Iraqi exiles of pocketing at least $4 million of CIA funds.

 

Headline:  C.I.A. Hunts Iraq Tie to Soviet Smallpox, by Judith Miller, December 3, 2002.

 

Smallpox was cited by President Bush as one of the “weapons of mass destruction” possessed by Iraq that justified a dangerous national inoculation program-and an invasion.

 

Miller wrote:  “Iraq obtained a particularly virulent strain of smallpox from a Russian scientist.” The story adds later: “The information came to the American government from an informant whose identity has not been disclosed.”

 

However, after a three-month search of Iraq, the Small Pox team “‘Team Pox’ turned up only signs to the contrary: disabled equipment that had been rendered harmless by UN inspectors, Iraqi scientists deemed credible who gave no indication they had worked with smallpox, and a laboratory thought to be back in use that was covered in cobwebs,” reported the Associated Press in September 2003.

 

Headline/front page:  Illicit Arms Kept Till Eve of War, an Iraqi Scientist Is Said to Assert, by Judith Miller, April 21, 2003.

 

Miller quotes an American military officer who passes on the assertions of “a man who said he was an Iraqi scientist” in US custody. The “scientist” claims that Iraq destroyed its WMD stockpile days before the war began, that the regime had transferred banned weapons to Syria, and that Saddam Hussein was working closely with Al Qaeda.

 

Who is scientist?  Miller tells us only that she “was permitted to see him from a distance at the sites where he said that material from the arms program was buried. Clad in nondescript clothes and a baseball cap, he pointed to several spots in the sand where he said chemical precursors and other weapons material were buried.”

 

And then there were the terms of this disclosure: “This reporter was not permitted to interview the scientist or visit his home. Nor was she permitted to write about the discovery of the scientist for three days, and the copy was then submitted for a check by military officials. Those officials asked that details of what chemicals were uncovered be deleted.”

 

No proof. No names. No chemicals. Three months later, Miller acknowledged that the scientist was merely “a senior Iraqi military intelligence official.” His explosive claims vaporized.  https://www.democracynow.org/2004/5/26/online_exclusive_fatal_error_lies_of

 

On April 4, 2015, in The Wall Street Journal a New York Times editorial acknowledged that some their reporter m news stories about WMDs was inaccurate in regards to the run-up to the war. She relied too heavily on Ahmed Abdel Hadi Chalabi and other Iraqi exiles, which were bent on regime change. Miller reported that trailers found in Iraq had been shown to be mobile weapons labs. However, that claim too was subsequently refuted as false.

 

On February 06, 2004, CIA Director George Tenet fiercely defending the intelligence community, saying with a defiant posture and impassioned tone, that the CIA never warned President Bush that Saddam Hussein’s government posed an “imminent threat,” and he backed away from several claims about weapons of mass destruction that the White House had used to justify the invasion of Iraq.  And the CIA had allowed “fabricated” information from an “unreliable” Iraqi defector about suspected mobile germ-weapons labs.  Tenet said, “There is no consensus within our community over whether the trailers were for that use or if they were used for the production of hydrogen.”

 

Tenet’s insistence that the CIA did not portray Iraq as an imminent threat put new pressure on the White House to explain its decision to launch a preemptive war.

 

Bush made his most direct acknowledgment to date that there were problems with the administration’s prewar claims that Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and was working on delivery systems.

 

On February 5, 2005, President Bush made his most direct acknowledgment to date that there were problems with the administration’s prewar claims that Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and was working on delivery systems.  Bush said in a speech, “We have not yet found the stockpiles of weapons that we thought were there,” the president said. But he continued to defend the war, saying, “We had a choice — either take the word of a madman or take action to defend the American people.”

 

An intelligence official said later that the Iraqi National Congress, then an opposition group headed by exile Ahmad Chalabi, had delivered the defector named Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi (codenamed Curveball) to the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) for debriefing. Although the DIA initially circulated the informant’s claims about mobile labs, the DIA later backtracked and warned the intelligence community that “this individual was possibly fabricating or embellishing his information.”

Headlines: Curveball’ Debacle Reignites CIA Feud,  April 02, 2005

 

The German Federal Intelligence Service and the British Secret Intelligence Service questioned the authenticity of the claims.

 

Tyler Drumheller, the former chief of the CIA’s European division, told the Los Angeles Times that “everyone in the chain of command knew exactly what was happening.”

 

Tyler Drumheller, former chief of the CIA European Division, said he and other senior officials in his office — the unit that oversees spying in Europe — had issued repeated warnings about Curveball’s accounts.  Iraqi defectors are debriefed by DIA first in Germany.

 

“Everyone in the chain of command knew exactly what was happening,” said Drumheller, who retired in November after 25 years at the CIA. He said he never met personally with Tenet, but “did talk to McLaughlin and everybody else.”

 

Drumheller scoffed at claims by Tenet and McLauglin that they were unaware of concerns about Curveball’s credibility. He said he was disappointed that the two former CIA leaders would resort to a “bureaucratic defense” that they never got a formal memo expressing doubts about the defector.

“They can say whatever they want,” Drumheller said. “They know what the truth is …. I did not lie.” Drumheller said the CIA had “lots of documentation” to show suspicions about Curveball were disseminated widely within the agency. He said they included warnings to McLaughlin’s office and to the Weapons Intelligence Non Proliferation and Arms Control Center, known as WINPAC, the group responsible for many of the flawed prewar assessments on Iraq.

 

Drumheller said, “Believe me, there are literally inches and inches of documentation” including “dozens and dozens of e-mails and memos and things like that detailing meetings” where officials sharply questioned Curveball’s credibility.

 

The failure to communicate serious concerns about him to Powell and other policy makers “represents a serious failure of management and leadership,” the commission concluded.

 

On April 8, 2005, CIA Director Porter Goss ordered an internal review of the CIA in order to determine why doubts about Curveball’s reliability were not forwarded to policy makers. Former CIA Director George Tenet and his former deputy, John E. McLaughlin, announced that they were not aware of doubts about Curveball’s veracity before the war.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curveball_(informant)

 

In May 2005 Bush’s poll numbers are going down after the torture incidents are coming to light, and this was the perfect time to try to convince voters that violations of the Geneva Convention could be justified in the face of the new threats.

 

Judith Miller was involved in the public disclosure of the status of Valerie Plame, an undercover CIA officer. In July 2005, she was ordered jailed for contempt of court for protecting her source, Scooter Libby, the special assistant to Vice President Dick Cheney.  She spent 85 days in jail.

July 7, 2005 London transport bombings incident occurred.  However, just a few days prior the British secret service, about 1000+ police officers and first responders had conducted a counter terrorism drill.  This drill turned out to be the exact same scenario and at the exact same bus and train stations as the practice drill.  What are the odds?  Killed were 52 commuters and about 300 to 700 of people were seriously injured. This 7/7 bombing incident called a terrorist attack.

 

John Loftus, a terrorism expert and a former prosecutor for the US Justice Department, has revealed that the so-called mastermind of the July 7th bombings, Haroon Rashid Aswat, is actually a British intelligence asset. He recruited al-Qaeda fighters for the covert US and NATO efforts to destabilize Bosnia and Chechnya. Loftus revealed that the so-called Al-Muhajiroun group, recruited by MI6 to fight in Kosovo. “Believe it or not, British intelligence actually hired some Al-Qaeda guys to help the Muslim rights in Albania and in Kosovo.  http://www.zeusinfoservice.com/Articles/NationalPlanningScenarios2

 

On July 25, 2005, former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook said, Al-Qaida, literally “the database”, was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians.

 

Robin Cook, 59, on August 6, 2005 mysteriously died while walking alone with his wife on Scottish hillside. The post-mortem took two days and stated the cause of death was hypertensive heart disease. The landlady of Scourie Lodge where Cook and his wife stay prior to walking, said of Cook’s wife, “She was lucky another walker was in the area to be with her at such a time. (because both Cook and his wife did not have a cell phone to call for help).

 

On March 17, 2003, Robin Cook a member of Britain Labour party, resigned from Tony Blair’s cabinet as the buildup to war with Iraq gathers pace.  One month before he died, Cook may have started to divulge confidential information, despite having signed the Official Secrets Act.

 

Cook stated: “The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this.”

 

“But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the TV watcher to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism.”

 

“The country behind this propaganda is the US . . .”

 

What makes Cook’s death suspicious?  For one, the absolute lack of interest by virtually all of the mainstream media in looking into the death of Robin Cook remains very suspect, just like the lack of police interest at the time.

 

Yet most early press reports indicated that, after having had a heart attack, he had fallen down a ridge and had broken his neck. The spokesman for RAF Kinloss air rescue centre said that Robin Cook had been winched up to the helicopter from “… close to the summit.  That part of Ben Stack is very steep, monster steep and very rocky.”  I reckon it’d be a bit surprising if there were no head or neck injuries at all if a body fell, as a dead-weight, down that rocky ridge.  But the official story was that his sudden death by heart disease.

 

Mrs. Cook and a man, who has not been named, allegedly gave Robin Cook mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and chest compressions under the telephone guidance of Inverness ambulance staff, until rescuers arrived by Coastguard helicopter at 3:01 PM.

 

How come that heroic walker kept his anonymity?   Did he, at least, give a statement to police?  What about the party he belonged to, mentioned by the Sunday Times, the Herald and many others?  No one in that group of walkers was spoken to by anyone in the media or the police, as far as we know.

 

Cook was rushed to hospital by helicopter without his wife, who was not permitted to accompany him, even though he was allegedly still alive at that point. The helicopter, according to newspaper reports, had taken 30 minutes to arrive at the scene. As her husband was flown off, Mrs Cook was left to walk all the way back down the Scottish mountainside on her own.  Of course the added weight onto the helicopter may have been the reason.

 

A high-profile former British foreign secretary, who had maybe started to spill official secrets, dies unexpectedly, yet his death seemed to be pushed to one side very quickly; which is odd when it concerns the death of a highly significant and former political figure.

 

Cook had been one of the most ardent objectors to British involvement in the Iraq War. In fact he famously resigned from the Labour Party in protest over the decision to invade Iraq.  Cook had said at the time, “I have heard it said that Iraq has had not months but 12 years in which to complete disarmament and that our patience is exhausted, yet it is more than 30 years since Resolution 242 called on Israel to withdraw from the occupied territories. We do not express the same impatience with the persistent refusal of Israel to comply.”

 

Cook was also the man most credited with having helped convince Gaddafi-era Libya, after over eight years of resistance, to hand over the suspected Lockerbie bombers for a trial in the Netherlands (but crucially according to Scottish law). This Libyan extradition of the Lockerbie suspects (who it turns out were innocent anyway) was a major reason that Libya and the West were able to reconcile for those brief few years, with the Gaddafi government becoming a key ally in the so-called ‘War on Terror’.

 

In March 1998, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu angrily cancelled a dinner with Cook when the British Foreign Secretary did that rare thing (for a Western politician) and openly criticized illegal Israeli settlement building in Palestinian territory.  http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2005/jul/08/july7.development?INTCMP=SRCH

 

Chilcot Inquiry after its chairman, Sir John Chilcot is a British public inquiry into the nation’s role in the Iraq War. This inquiry’s report was published in 2016 with a public statement by Chilcot.

 

Speaking in Parliament, Jeremy Corbyn, a Member of Parliament (MP) for Islington North since 1983 and was elected Labour Leader in 2015, said that MPs who voted for the war were “misled by a small number of leading figures in the Government” who “were none too scrupulous about how they made their case for war” and Caroline Lucas, MP for the Green Party, claimed that contradictions between public statements and private memos to Bush proved that Blair was “lying” about whether war could have been averted. Philippe Sands said the report pulled its punches but marshaled the factual evidence in such a way that an inference of lying, deceit or manipulation was possible. On 22 November 2009, former British Ambassador Oliver Miles published an article in the Independent on Sunday, in which he questioned the appointment to the inquiry panel of two British historians on the basis of their previous support for Israel. https://theburningbloggerofbedlam.wordpress.com/2015/08/19/will-there-ever-be-an-investigation-into-the-death-of-robin-cook/

 

  1.  In addition to the anthrax letters which scared the be-Jesus out of Americans, which allowed the Congressional intelligence committee to not speak up about the planned use of torture, we must add to this list of events that demand a new Congressional investigation is the added evidence that the Bush administration lied about the threat of terrorism.  Here is the rest of the story.

 

  1. The Sixth Terror alert to scare the crap out of us about THREAT and to get us into the wars

 

Commentary: What the AWOL Bush/Cheney et al did was put the shadow government operation plan into action. Thereby, covertly leaking that the CIA knew something BIG was about to happen. Of course, this was all a deception plan directed at the American people and Congress. The military had been teaching the importance of Information Warfare (aka propaganda directed at Americans) was necessary to prevent another lost war like Vietnam.

Here is the record.

 

Early November 2001: Under the classified “Continuity of Operations Plan high-ranking officials representing their departments have begun rotating in and out of the assignment at one of two fortified locations along the East Coast.

The Post said the first rotations were made in late October or early November 2001, a fact confirmed by a senior government official.

 

Officials who are activated for the duty live and work underground 24 hours a day, away from their families, according to the Post. The shadow government has sent home most of the first wave of deployed personnel, replacing them most commonly at 90-day intervals.

 

The team, drawn from every Cabinet department and some independent agencies, would seek to prevent the collapse of essential government functions in the event of a disabling blow to Washington, the official said.

 

According to the Post, the backup government consists generally of officials from top career ranks, from GS-14 and GS-15 to members of the Senior Executive Service. The White House is represented by a “senior-level presence,” one official said, but well below such Cabinet-ranked advisers as Chief of Staff Andrew H. Card Jr. and national security adviser Condoleezza Rice. Many departments, including Justice and Treasury, have completed plans to delegate statutory powers to officials who would not normally exercise them, the Post said. Others do not need to make such legal transfers, or are holding them in reserve. Civilians deployed for the operation are not allowed to take their families and may not tell anyone where they are going or why.

 

The government-in-waiting is an extension of a policy that has kept Vice President Dick Cheney in secure, undisclosed locations away from Washington. Cheney has moved in and out of public view as threat levels have fluctuated.

“We take this issue extraordinarily seriously”, Joseph W. Hagin, White House deputy chief of staff, told the Post, “In the case of the use of a weapon of mass destruction, the federal government would be able to do its job and continue to provide key services and respond.”

March 2, 2002

Five times that the Terrorist Alert System were used for political reasons

 

Sept 11 thru 24, 2002: Threat level raised to orange for the first time: Aschcroft said, “Al Qaeda cells in several South Asian countries have been accumulating explosives since January and may be planning car bomb or other attacks on US facilities”. ,” President Bush said at the Afghanistan Embassy in Washington. “We have no specific threat to America, but we’re taking everything seriously,” he said.

 

Comment: If no specific threat then why raise the threat level? (Did) Bush turned public anxiety into Republican votes (Nov 2002 elections) by arguing that the then-Democratic Senate was “not interested in the security of the American people.”

 

For months, criticism of Bush was put on hold as Democrats scrambled to prove how cooperative and patriotic they were. But if it was unpatriotic to criticize Bush in the months after 9/11, when would criticism become patriotic again. Typical was House Speaker Dennis Hastert’s comment about Daschle’s criticism of Bush’s diplomacy before the Iraq war. Daschle, he said, had “come mighty close” to “giv[ing] comfort to our adversaries.” http://www.eriposte.com/war_peace/911/911.htm

 

Senators Back President Bush on Iraq Resolution (S. J. Res. 46), October 2, 2002:

 

March 17 thru Apr 16, 2003: Threat level raised to orange and activates Operation Liberty Shield: “While al-Qaida remains the principal concern, we are also concerned Iraqi state agents, Iraqi surrogate groups or ad hoc groups or disgruntled individuals might choose to use the time period as well to launch attacks against the United States or against our coalition partners,” said Homeland Security spokesman Gordon Johndroe.

 

Comment: Still trying to sell the lies about links to Iraq and al-Qaeda using the raised terrorist alerts to scare Americans into supporting the war.

 

19 March 2003, US military invades Iraq (D+1).

 

May 28, 2004 The latest hype from Ashcroft stating Al Qaeda’s is now 90% ready to conduct their next attack on the US (up from the 70% intelligence agencies’ estimate).

 

Attorney General John Ashcroft warned of an attack planned on America for sometime in the coming months. That may happen, but NBC News has learned one of Ashcroft’s sources is highly suspect. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5087301/

 

Comment: Bush’s poll numbers are going down after the torture incidents are coming to light, so this is the time to put the fear of god into America. This is the perfect time to try to convince voters that violations of the Geneva Convention could be justified in the face of the new threats.

 

The New York Times reporter Judith Miller acknowledged in The Wall Street Journal on April 4, 2015 that some of her coverage about WMDs was inaccurate. On May 26, 2004, a week after the CIA and DIA apparently severed ties with Ahmed Chalabi, a Times editorial acknowledged that some of the paper’s coverage in the run-up to the war had relied too heavily on Ahmed Chalabi and other Iraqi exiles, who were bent on regime change. Miller story, claimed that trailers found in Iraq had been shown to be mobile weapons labs. However, that claim too was subsequently refuted as false.

Miller was later involved in the Plame Affair, in which the status of Valerie Plame as a member of the CIA became widely known. In July 2005, She spent 85 days in jail for contempt of court for protecting her source, Scooter Libby, the special assistant to Vice President Dick Cheney. On October 12, 2001, Miller opened a letter mailed to her New York Times office that contained white power.  The FBI and US postal inspectors have responded to thousands of “white powder events” and targets have included government offices, US embassies, banks and news organizations. Prosecutors claimed that Miller and her colleague Philip Shenon, on December 3, 2001, telephoned the Holy Land Foundation alerting it that the FBI suspected it was links to terrorism and was planning to search the premises of this alleged charity organization.

 

July 9, 2004 Ridge Warns of ‘Credible’ al-Qaida Plot

 

Today House GOP Defends Patriot Act Powers

House Republicans, under strong pressure from the White House, narrowly defeated an effort yesterday to water down the Bush administration’s signature law to combat domestic terrorism.

 

By a 210 to 210 tie vote that GOP leaders prolonged for 23 tumultuous minutes while they corralled dissident members, the House rejected a proposed change to the USA Patriot Act that would have barred the Justice Department from searching bookstore and library records. White House officials, citing the nearly three-year-old law’s importance as an anti-terrorism tool, warned that an attempt to weaken it would be vetoed.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A37480-2004Jul8.html

 

July 09, 2004: Is this the fifth time the Bush Crime family has raised the fear level about terrorism for political gain?

 

On August 1, 2004, just days after the Democratic National Convention nominated presidential candidate John Kerry on a national security platform, the Bush Administration raised its terror threat level to “Code Orange,” or high, for certain cities with major financial institutions.

 

In a press conference to announce the change, which stepped on the Kerry storyline coming out of the convention, Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge described the source of the intelligence that led to the color change:

 

Ridge said at this time: [W]e must understand that the kind of information available to us today is the result of the President’s leadership in the war against terror. The reports that have led to this alert are the result of offensive intelligence and military operations overseas, as well as strong partnerships with our allies around the world, such as Pakistan.

 

Add to the list of events wherein the odds that they were just due to chance, add this one. The London transit terrorist bombings occurred on July 7, 2005.  A few days prior at the exact same stations the British secret service had conducted a counter terrorism drill which included 1000+ police officers and etc. The 7/7 bombings occurred in the exact same scenario as the drill a few days prior.  What are the odds?  Just like the US Air Force’s hijacker exercises that occurred on 9/11.

 

August 20, 2009 Tom Ridge reveals that Attorney General John Ashcroft and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld argued in favor of raising the threat level by noting the correlation it had with Bush’s approval rating:

 

Neither Mr. Ridge nor any of the department’s security experts thought the message warranted any change in the nation’s alert status.

http://thinkprogress.org/2009/08/20/ridge-book-ashcroft-rummy/

 

To understand the import of this admission, we must remember the politically charged mood of national insecurity that dominated in 2004. For months, there had been significant buzz about a possible Al Qaeda attack, which never materialized. The issue became a regular topic of debate and discussion within the media, spreading a message of continuing insecurity that clearly aided President Bush’s campaign themes.

 

A week after the alerts were raised in August, for instance, the discussion of another attack dominated the Sunday talk shows. As CNN noted at the time, “The decision to raise the alert level to orange, or elevated, for specific buildings in New York City; Newark, New Jersey; and Washington, D.C., has been criticized because it was based at least partly on information three or four years old.”

 

By late October, The New York Times was writing about just how little was known about any possible plans for an attack.

 

On November 10, 2004 just eight days after President Bush (stole the election for his second term for the second time), the Department of Homeland Security downgraded the “orange” alert for the financial services sector back to “yellow,” or elevated. The threat had apparently passed.

Twenty-Three Intel Experts Say LA Terror Plot a Sham

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NewsViewsnolose/message/240

A dirty bomb is NO more dangerous than a regular bomb.  We just have to use more care and effort to clean up the mess.

 

  1.  I have added the following list of witnesses because there is a lot of members of the 9/11 Truth movement who believe no 757 hit the Pentagon.  I used to also believe that.

 

Lloyde England was videotaped stating that the front windshield of his taxi cab was smashed by a street light pole when it fell down onto his cab. His cab that was stopped in the middle of the street and resting on the street near it was the street light pole.  These were photographed by people first arriving at the Pentagon fire scene.

Afework Hagos:

Afework Hagos, a computer programmer, was on his way to work but stuck in a traffic jam near the Pentagon when the plane flew over. “There was a huge screaming noise and I got out of the car as the plane came over. Everybody was running away in different directions. It was tilting its wings up and down like it was trying to balance. It hit some lampposts on the way in.”

Don Fortunato:

“Traffic was at a standstill, so I parked on the shoulder, not far from the scene and ran to the site. Next to me was a cab from D.C., its windshield smashed out by pieces of lampposts. There were pieces of the plane all over the highway, pieces of wing, I think.”

Steve Anderson:

Shortly after watching the second tragedy, I heard jet engines pass our building, which, being so close to the airport is very common. But I thought the airport was closed. I figured it was a plane coming in for landing. A few moments later, as I was looking down at my desk, the plane caught my eye. It didn’t register at first. I thought to myself that I couldn’t believe the pilot was flying so low. Then it dawned on me what was about to happen. I watched in horror as the plane flew at treetop level, banked slightly to the left, drug it’s wing along the ground and slammed into the west wall of the Pentagon exploding into a giant orange fireball. Then black smoke. Then white smoke.

Deb Anlauf:

Anlauf was watching TV coverage of the Trade Center burning shortly before 9:30 a.m. when she decided to return to her 14th-floor room from another part of the hotel. Once in her room, she heard a “loud roar” and looked out the window to see what was going on. “Suddenly I saw this plane right outside my window,” Anlauf said during a telephone interview from her hotel room this morning. “You felt like you could touch it; it was that close. It was just incredible. “Then it shot straight across from where we are and flew right into the Pentagon. It was just this huge fireball that crashed into the wall (of the Pentagon). When it hit, the whole hotel shook.”

Arlington police transmission:

Motor 11: There is visible smoke coming from that area…high, visible smoke.
Dispatcher: Motor 11 direct.
Motor 14: Motor 14, it was an American Airlines plane, uh, headed eastbound over the Pike (Columbia Pike highway), possibly toward the Pentagon.
Dispatcher: 10-4. Cruiser 50 direct.

David Battle:

Earlier Tuesday, Battle, an office worker at the Pentagon, was standing outside the building and just about to enter when the aircraft struck. “It was coming down head first,” he said. “And when the impact hit, the cars and everything were just shaking.”

Gary Bauer:

I had just passed the closest place the Pentagon is to the exit on 395 . . . when all of a sudden I heard the roar of a jet engine. I looked at the woman sitting in the car next to me. She had this startled look on her face. We were all thinking the same thing. We looked out the front of our windows to try to see the plane, and it wasn’t until a few seconds later that we realized the jet was coming up behind us on that major highway. And it veered to the right into the Pentagon. The blast literally rocked all of our cars. It was an incredible moment.

Maurice Bease:

Sergeant Maurice L. Bease had worked around Marine aviation long enough to know what a fly-by was, and it sounded like one as he stood outside his office near the Pentagon on Sept. 11. Turning around expecting to see a fighter jet fly over, he saw only a split-second glimpse of a white commercial airliner streaking low toward the building, and him! He did not even have time to duck before it plowed into the side of the Pentagon around the corner and about 200 yards from where he stood. Immediately, a ball of flame shot up the side of the building, followed by smoke, lots of it.

Paul Begala:

Paul Begala, a Democratic consultant, said he witnessed an explosion near the Pentagon. “It was a huge fireball, a huge, orange fireball,” he said in an interview on his mobile phone.

Mickey Bell:

Bell, who had been less than 100 feet from the initial impact of the plane, was nearly struck by one of the plane´s wings as it sped by him. In shock, he got into his truck, which had been parked in the trailer compound, and sped away. He wandered around Arlington in his truck and tried to make wireless phone calls. He ended up back at Singleton´s headquarters in Gaithersburg two hours later, according to President Singleton, not remembering much. The full impact of the closeness of the crash wasn´t realized until coworkers noticed damage to Bell´s work vehicle. He had plastic and rivets from an airplane imbedded in its sheet metal, but Bell had no idea what had happened.

Susan Bergen:

Susan Bergen was sitting in a hotel room near the Pentagon on Tuesday morning, glued to TV news coverage of the World Trade Center attack. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw a plane outside the window of her 11th floor room. She turned just in time to see a big jetliner skim the treetops and slam into the side of the Pentagon, less than a half mile from her hotel room. It looked like the plane sped up just before hitting the building, she said.

Brian Birdwell:

LTC Brian Birdwell. He was just heading back down the hall to his office when the building exploded in front of him. … Once they stabilized Brian, they transferred him to George Washington Hospital where…the best, cutting edge burn doctor in the U.S. The doctor told him that had he not gone to Georgetown first, he probably would not have survived because of the jet fuel in his lungs.

Ed Blunt:

Engine 101 actually saw the jetliner plow into the northwest side of the Pentagon. The radio crackled, “Engine 101—emergency traffic, a plane has gone down into the Pentagon.”

Sean Boger:

Sean Boger, Air Traffic Controller and Pentagon tower chief – “I just looked up and I saw the big nose and the wings of the aircraft coming right at us and I just watched it hit the building.” “It exploded. I fell to the ground and covered my head. I could actually hear the metal going through the building.”

Pam Bradley:

I work in Washington DC area, and was on my way to work, in my car, sitting on a bridge, and saw the plane hit the Pentagon. I am in a complete state of shock

 

Donald Bouchoux:

Donald R. Bouchoux, 53, a retired Naval officer, a Great Falls resident, a Vietnam veteran and former commanding officer of a Navy fighter squadron, was driving west from Tysons Corner to the Pentagon for a 10am meeting. He wrote: At 9:40 a.m. I was driving down Washington Boulevard (Route 27) along the side of the Pentagon when the aircraft crossed about 200 yards (should be more than 150 yards from the impact) in front of me and impacted the side of the building. There was an enormous fireball, followed about two seconds later by debris raining down. The car moved about a foot to the right when the shock wave hit. [Telephone interview]

 

Mark Bright:

“I saw the plane at the Navy Annex area,” he said. “I knew it was going to strike the building because it was very, very low — at the height of the street lights. It knocked a couple down.” The plane would have been seconds from impact — the annex is only a few hundred yards from the Pentagon. He said he heard the plane “power-up” just before it struck the Pentagon. ”

 

Omar Campo:

It was a passenger plane. I think an American Airways plane, Mr Campo said. “I was cutting the grass and it came in screaming over my head. I felt the impact. The whole ground shook and the whole area was full of fire.”

James R. Cissell:

”Out of my peripheral vision, I saw this plane coming in and it was low – and getting lower. ”If you couldn’t touch it from standing on the highway, you could by standing on your car.” ”I thought, ‘This isn’t really happening. That is a big plane.’ Then I saw the faces of some of the passengers on board,” Cissell said. ”I remember thinking, ‘The World Trade Center was just the beginning, there’s going to be more.’ ” He remembers the helipad the plane flew over before smacking into the Pentagon was close enough to him that ”I could have thrown a baseball at it and hit it.”

Allen Cleveland:

Allen Cleveland of Woodbridge Virginia looked out from a Metro train going to National Airport, to see a jet heading down toward the Pentagon. “I thought, ‘There’s no landing strip on that side of the subway tracks,’ ” Before he could process that thought, he saw “a huge mushroom cloud. The lady next to me was in absolute hysterics.”” . . a silver pasenger jet, mid sized

Richard Cox:

The hijacked jetliner, traveling at 350 miles an hour, was only about 100 feet from the ground when it cruised over Arlington police officer Richard Cox’s head, just a quarter mile from the Pentagon. “It was low enough for me to see the reflection of cars and trees and buildings on its underside as it passed by,” he says. “It was low enough for my heart to stop.”

Dan Creed:

He and two colleagues from Oracle software were stopped in a car near the Naval Annex, next to the Pentagon, when they saw the plane dive down and level off. “It was no more than 30 feet off the ground, and it was screaming. It was just screaming. It was nothing more than a guided missile at that point,” Creed said. “I can still see the plane. I can still see it right now. It’s just the most frightening thing in the world, going full speed, going full throttle, its wheels up,” Creed recalls

Wayne Day:

“We had one guy who was standing, looking out the window and saw the plane when it was coming in. He was in front of one of the blast-resistant windows,” says Kirlin President Wayne T. Day, who believes the window structure saved the man’s life. According to Matt Hahr, Kirlin’s senior project manager at the Pentagon, the employee “was thrown about 80 ft down the hall through the air. As he was traveling through the air, he says the ceiling was coming down from the concussion. He got thrown into a closet, the door slammed shut and the fireball went past him,” recounts Hahr. “Jet fuel was on him and it irritated his eyes, but he didn’t get burned.”

Michael DiPaula:

“Suddenly, an airplane roared into view, nearly shearing the roof off the trailer before slamming into the E ring. ‘It sounded like a missile,’ DiPaula recalls . . . Buried in debris and covered with airplane fuel, he was briefly listed by authorities as missing, but eventually crawled from the flaming debris and the shroud of black smoke unscathed.

Mike Dobbs:

It was an American airlines airliner. I was looking out the window and saw it come right over the Navy annex at a slow angle. It looked to me to be on a zero-to-zero course. It seemed to be almost coming in in slow motion. I didn’t actually feel it hit, but I saw it and then we all started running.”

Bob Dubill:

Every morning for years Bob Dubill drove past the Pentagon on his way to work at USA Today. He was passing the building the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, when he saw a jetliner fly over the roadway. It filled his field of vision. The jet was 40-feet off the ground speeding toward the Pentagon. “The wheels were up and I knew that this plane was not heading for National Airport,” he said. “This plane was going to slam into the Pentagon. I steeled myself for the explosion.”The blast froze traffic on the highway.

Bobby Eberle:

I looked back and saw a jet airliner flying very low and very fast. … The aircraft was so very low — as an aircraft would be on its final approach to an airport. However, if you have watched any aircraft come in for a landing, even though the aircraft is descending, it is angled up slightly. This aircraft was angled downward. In addition, landing gear would also be visible on a aircraft so low and so near landing. This aircraft had its landing gear retracted. Finally, an aircraft on final approach is traveling rather slowly. This aircraft sped by very loudly an very quickly. All of this flashed in my mind as the aircraft passed from behind my left shoulder to in front of me. It was then that the other events of the morning crystallized in the realization that tragedy was about to occur. With all of these images spinning in my head, the only words that came out of my mouth were “Oh no!” With that, the airliner crashed into the Pentagon and exploded.

Penny Elgas:

The plane seemed to be floating as if it were a paper glider and I watched in horror as it gently rocked and slowly glided straight into the Pentagon. At the point where the fuselage hit the wall, it seemed to simply melt into the building. I saw a smoke ring surround the fuselage as it made contact with the wall. It appeared as a smoke ring that encircled the fuselage at the point of contact and it seemed to be several feet thick. I later realized that it was probably the rubble of churning bits of the plane and concrete. The churning smoke ring started at the top of the fuselage and simultaneously wrapped down both the right and left sides of the fuselage to the underside, where the coiling rings crossed over each other and then coiled back up to the top. Then it started over again — only this next time, I also saw fire, glowing fire in the smoke ring. At that point, the wings disappeared into the Pentagon. And then I saw an explosion and watched the tail of the plane slip into the building.

Kim Flyler:

“At that moment I heard a plane and then a loud cracking noise…. Right before the plane hit the building, you could see the silhouettes of people in the back two rows. You couldn’t see if they were male or female, but you could tell there was a human being in there.”

Kat Gaines:

Her commute to the airport took her south on Route 110, in front of the parking lots of the Pentagon. As she approached the parking lots, she saw a low-flying jetliner strike the top of nearby telephone poles. She then heard the plane power up and plunge into the Pentagon.

Joe Harrington:

Harrington was working on the installation of new furniture in Wedge One, when he was called out to the parking lot to talk about security with his customer moments before the crash. “About two minutes later one of my guys pointed to an American airlines airplane 20 feet high over Washington Blvd.,” Harrington said. “It seemed like it made impact just before the wedge. It was like a Hollywood movie or something.

Albert Hemphill:

All in all, I probably only had the aircraft in my field of view for approximately 3 seconds. The aircraft was at a sharp downward angle of attack, on a direct course for the Pentagon. It was “clean”, in as much as, there were no flaps applied and no apparent landing gear deployed. He was slightly left wing down as he appeared in my line of sight, as if he’d just “jinked” to avoid something. As he crossed Route 110 he appeared to level his wings, making a slight right wing slow adjustment as he impacted low on the Westside of the building to the right of the helo, tower and fire vehicle around corridor

Will Jarvis:

From time spent on military aircraft as part of his job at the Pentagon, Will Jarvis … knows what aviation fuel smells like. That smell was his only clue that a plane had crashed into the Pentagon.

Terrence Kean:

Terrance Kean, 35, who lives in a 14-story building nearby, heard the loud jet engines and glanced out his window. “I saw this very, very large passenger jet,” said the architect, who had been packing for a move. “It just plowed right into the side of the Pentagon. The nose penetrated into the portico. And then it sort of disappeared, and there was fire and smoke everywhere. . . . It was very sort of surreal.

Aydan Kizildrgli:

Aydan Kizildrgli, an English language student who is a native of Turkey, saw the jetliner bank slightly then strike a western wall of the huge five-sided building that is the headquarters of the nation’s military. “There was a big boom,” he said. “Everybody was in shock. I turned around to the car behind me and yelled ‘Did you see that?’ Nobody could believe it.”

K.M.:

I live in Pentagon City (part of Arlington) and can see the Pentagon when I look out my window. … It was so shocking, I was listening to the news on what had happened in New York, and just happened to look out the window because I heard a low flying plane and then I saw it hit the Pentagon. It happened so fast… it was in the air one moment and in the building the next…

Robert Leonard

“I looked in the rearview mirror to check the traffic and saw only a plane, flying very low. I followed it in my left outside mirror. I braked, looked out my left window and saw a large commercial aircraft aiming for the Pentagon. … The aircraft, so close to the ground, was banked skillfully to the right, leveled off perpendicular to the Pentagon’s southwest side, then went full throttle directly toward the building. The plane vanished, absorbed by the building, and there was a slight pause. Then a huge fireball rose into the sky.”

Lincoln Liebner:

As he ran to an entrance, he heard jet engines and turned in time to see the American Airlines plane diving toward the building. “I was close enough that I could see through the windows of the airplane, and watch as it as it hit,” he said. “There was no doubt in my mind what I was watching. Not for a second. It was accelerating,” he said. “It was wheels up, flaps up, engines full throttle.”

Dr. Thom Mayer:

At one point, he went into the charred opening, to check on the safety of workers there “There was jet fuel all over the place. It was very smoky, and it was difficult to breathe, even with a respirator,” he said.

Stephen McGraw:

“I did not hear anything at all until the plane was just right above our cars.” McGraw estimates that the plane passed about 20 feet over his car, as he waited in the left hand lane of the road, on the side closest to the Pentagon. “The plane clipped the top of a light pole just before it got to us, injuring a taxi driver, whose taxi was just a few feet away from my car. I saw it crash into the building,” he said. “My only memories really were that it looked like a plane coming in for a landing. … There was an explosion and a loud noise and I felt the impact. I remember seeing a fireball come out of two windows (of the Pentagon). I saw an explosion of fire billowing through those two windows.”

Terry Morin:

As the aircraft approached the Pentagon, I saw a minor flash (later found out that the aircraft had sheared off a portion of a highway light pole down on Hwy 110). As the aircraft flew ever lower I started to lose sight of the actual airframe as a row of trees to the Northeast of the FOB blocked my view. I could now only see the tail of the aircraft. I believe I saw the tail dip slightly to the right indicating a minor turn in that direction. The tail was barely visible when I saw the flash and subsequent fireball rise approximately 200 feet above the Pentagon.

Vin Narayanan:

Then I looked up to my left and saw an American Airlines jet flying right at me. The jet roared over my head, clearing my car by about 25 feet. The tail of the plane clipped the overhanging exit sign above me as it headed straight at the Pentagon. The windows were dark on American Airlines Flight 77 as it streaked toward its target, only 50 yards away. The hijacked jet slammed into the Pentagon at a ferocious speed. But the Pentagon’s wall held up like a champ. It barely budged as the nose of the plane curled upwards and crumpled before exploding into a massive fireball. The people who built that wall should be proud. Its ability to withstand the initial impact of the jet probably saved thousands of lives.

John O’Keefe:

I don’t know whether I saw or heard it first — this silver plane; I immediately recognized it as an American Airlines jet,” said the 25-year-old O’Keefe, managing editor of Influence, an American Lawyer Media publication about lobbying. “It came swooping in over the highway, over my left shoulder, straight across where my car was heading. I’d just heard them saying on the radio that National Airport was closing, and I thought, ‘That’s not going to make it to National Airport.’ And then I realized where I was, and that it was going to hit the Pentagon. There was a burst of orange flame that shot out that I could see through the highway overpass. Then it was just black. Just black thick smoke.

Mare Ann Owens

Looking up didn’t tell me what type of plane it was because it was so close I could only see the bottom. Realising the Pentagon was its target, I didn’t think the careering, full-throttled craft would get that far. Its downward angle was too sharp, its elevation of maybe 50 feet, too low. Street lights toppled as the plane barely cleared the Interstate 395 overpass. The thought that I was about to die was immediate and certain. This plane was going to hit me along with all the other commuters trapped on Washington Boulevard. Gripping the steering wheel of my vibrating car, I involuntarily ducked as the wobbling plane thundered over my head. Once it passed, I raised slightly and grimaced as the left wing dipped and scraped the helicopter area just before the nose crashed into the southwest wall of the Pentagon.

Steve Patterson:

Steve Patterson, 43, said he was watching television reports of the World Trade Center being hit when he saw a silver commuter jet fly past the window of his 14th-floor apartment in Pentagon City. The plane was about 150 yards away, approaching from the west about 20 feet off the ground, Patterson said. He said the plane, which sounded like the high-pitched squeal of a fighter jet, flew over Arlington cemetary so low that he thought it was going to land on I-395. He said it was flying so fast that he couldn’t read any writing on the side. The plane, which appeared to hold about eight to 12 people, headed straight for the Pentagon but was flying as if coming in for a landing on a nonexistent runway, Patterson said. “At first I thought ‘Oh my God, there’s a plane truly misrouted from National,'” Patterson said. “Then this thing just became part of the Pentagon .‚.‚. I was watching the World Trade Center go and then this. It was like Oh my God, what’s next?” He said the plane, which approached the Pentagon below treetop level, seemed to be flying normally for a plane coming in for a landing other than going very fast for being so low. Then, he said, he saw the Pentagon “envelope” the plane and bright orange flames shoot out the back of the building.

Scott Perry:

Scott Perry of Spotsylvania County heard a plane’s engines rumbling above the Navy Annex building where he works, so he looked out his window, which faces the Pentagon. “[The plane] was coming straight into the wedge,” Perry said. “I saw it crash. There was about five seconds of disbelief, and the next thing I heard was, down the hallway, a friend of mine screaming.”

Christine Peterson:

I looked idly out my window to the left — and saw a plane flying so low I said, “holy cow, that plane is going to hit my car” (not my actual words). The car shook as the plane flew over. It was so close that I could read the numbers under the wing. And then the plane crashed. My mind could not comprehend what had happened. Where did the plane go? For some reason I expected it to bounce off the Pentagon wall in pieces. But there was no plane visible, only huge billows of smoke and torrents of fire.

Frank Probst:

“I was standing on the sidewalk (parallel to the site of impact)…and I saw this plane coming right at me at what seemed like 300 miles an hour. I dove towards the ground and watched this great big engine from this beautiful airplane just vaporize,” said Frank Probst, a member of the Pentagon renovations crew commented. “It looked like a huge fireball, pieces were flying out everywhere.”

Wanda Ramey:

While Rosati couldn’t see the cause of the explosion, Wanda Ramey, a DPS master patrol officer, had had a bird’s eye view. Ramey stood at the Mall plaza booth when she saw a low-flying airplane. “I saw the wing of the plane clip the light post, and it made the plane slant. Then the engine revved up and crashed into the west side of the building,” she said. “It happened so fast. One second I saw the plane and next it was gone.” Recalling those moments again, Ramey said it appeared the building sucked the plane up inside. “A few seconds later, I heard a loud boom and I saw a huge fireball and lots of smoke,” she said

Noel Sepulveda:

The plane dipped its nose and crashed into the southwest side of the Pentagon. “The right engine hit high, the left engine hit low,” Sepulveda said. “For a brief moment, you could see the body of the plane sticking out from the side of the building. Then a ball of fire came from behind it.” I was a medic in the military, and shortly after I ran into the building and started pulling people out. I spent the next two weeks pulling out bodies, out of the Pentagon … Some of the bodies that we pulled out were still strapped into their … airline seats.

Philip Sheuerman:

On the morning of the attack, he was exiting the freeway, turning into the parking lot of the Pentagon, when he noticed a passenger plane — American Airlines Flight 77 — descend at increasing speed with its wheels up. Sheuerman, who had just heard about the attacks on the World Trade Center minutes before, realized that “it was perfectly obvious what (the plane) was going to do.” He saw the plane slam into the Pentagon.

Jack Singleton:

“Where the plane came in was really at the construction entrance,” says Jack Singleton, president of Singleton Electric Co. Inc., Gaithersburg MD, the Wedge One electrical subcontractor. “The plane’s left wing actually came in near the ground and the right wing was tilted up in the air. That right wing went directly over our trailer, so if that wing had not tilted up, it would have hit the trailer. My foreman, Mickey Bell, had just walked out of the trailer and was walking toward the construction entrance.”

Mark Skipper:

[W]e were about 300 feet from the impact site from the collapsed building side. Me, myself and Al Wallace (ph) were standing outside when we saw the plane, not too far from where we are sitting right now, and as soon as we saw it, we started running toward the north side of the building, and that’s when we heard the explosion and the incredible crash.

Steve Snaman:

Steve Snaman, manager of the datacom division for Walker Seals, watched in horror from Fort McNair (across the river) as the jetliner came in low at full throttle, banked left and smashed into the wall of the Pentagon. “We saw the plane hit the Pentagon,” Snaman said. “My first reaction was to get on the Nextel to reach my men, but I couldn’t get a signal. They were in Wedge One.”

“Steve”:

I saw the jet just before it crashed. Something big and silver, nose down going aimed like a dart straight into it. The fireball was huge, 10 stories high and our building shook hard.

Steve Storti:

Then he caught the glint of silver out of the corner of his eye. He looked up to see a passenger plane with the trademark stainless-steel fuselage and stripes of American Airlines. It was way off the normal flight pattern for Reagan National, said Storti, who had been living in the Crystal City section of Arlington for about two years. The plane was also alarmingly low, passing behind nearby apartment buildings that were only several stories high. … Time seemed to slip into slow motion as he watched the plane cross over Route 395, tip its left wing as it passed the Navy annex, veer sharply and then slice into the Pentagon. “I remember thinking that whoever is flying this knows what they’re doing,” Storti said. “The plane traveled straight as an arrow. It didn’t waver and it didn’t flip from side to side.” Storti watched the plane slide silently into the Pentagon “like a car entering a garage.” When it had plunged in as far as its tail fin, there was huge explosion — a “pumpkin circle” of deep orange fire and oily black smoke that obscured the entire building. Moments later, Storti said, “there was huge bang, then a roar and a rumble.” I heard it bank. I heard the engines rev. I saw it hit. I felt, smelt, and tasted the explosion, and lived with the aftermath for months afterwards. I promise you it was a fucking plane and not a cruise missile or anything else.

Shari Taylor:

I looked over my shoulder and you can hear the plane coming in, it was just so loud. Normally you don’t see planes on that side of the Pentagon, and that was my first thought. I thought, ‘What is he doing on that side of the Pentagon, it’s so strange.’ And then you could just see him descend and just keep descending lower and lower, until he was almost on top of Route 27 that runs alongside the Pentagon. And then he just slammed into the Pentagon, you just knew he was going to hit the Pentagon, I mean there was no way he could not have hit it.”

Phillip Thompson:

I could see the roof of the Pentagon and, in the distance, the Washington Monument. I heard the scream of a jet engine and, turning to look, saw my driver’s side window filled with the fuselage of the doomed airliner. It was flying only a couple of hundred feet off the ground — I could see the passenger windows glide by. The plane looked as if it were coming in for a landing — cruising at a shallow angle, wings level, very steady. But, strangely, the landing gear was up and the flaps weren’t down. I knew what was about to happen, but my brain couldn’t quite process the information. Like the other commuters on the road, I was stunned into disbelief. The fireball that erupted upon impact blossomed skyward, and the blast hit us in a wave.

Tim Timmerman:

A pilot who saw the impact, Tim Timmerman, said it had been an American Airways 757. “It added power on its way in,” he said. “The nose hit, and the wings came forward and it went up in a fireball.” Smoke and flames poured out of a large hole punched into the side of the Pentagon.

Alan Wallace:

About 9:40, Alan Wallace had finished fixing the foam metering valve on the back of his fire truck parked in the Pentagon fire station and walked to the front of the station. He looked up and saw a jetliner coming straight at him. It was about 25 feet off the ground, no landing wheels visible, a few hundred yards away and closing fast. “Runnnnn!” he yelled to a pal. There was no time to look back, barely time to scramble. He made it about 30 feet, heard a terrible roar, felt the heat, and dove underneath a van, skinning his stomach as he slid along the blacktop, sailing under it as though he were riding a luge. … The ground was on fire. Trees were on fire. Hot slices of aluminum were everywhere.

Mike Walter:

“…it turned and came around in front of the vehicle and it clipped one of these light poles … and slammed right into the Pentagon right there.” “Now there are some people who say that it skipped and went into the Pentagon and it may have gone that way, but that’s not what I saw. What I saw was the jet went very low into the Pentagon and it went straight.” “It seemed like it was a slow, graceful bank and then once it straightened out, that’s when it sped up.” “…you could see chunks of the wreckage on the ground, pieces of the plane…. It literally disintegrated on impact. It hit, and as it went into the side of the building it sheared off the wings.

Dave Winslow:

AP reporter Dave Winslow also saw the crash. He said, “I saw the tail of a large airliner … It ploughed right into the Pentagon.” [Telephone interview]

Madelyn Zakhem:

Madelyn Zakhem, executive secretary at the STC (VDOT Smart Traffic Center), had just stepped outside for a break and was seated on a bench when she heard what she thought was a jet fighter directly overhead. It wasn’t. It was an airliner coming straight up Columbia Pike at tree-top level. “It was huge! It was silver. It was low — unbelievable! I could see the cockpit. I fell to the ground…. I was crying and scared”. “If I had been on top of our building, I would have been close enough to reach up and catch it,”
