"Do the orders still stand?" -- Military aide to Vice President Navy Capt. Douglas Cochrane
Was there a stand down on 9-11? In a sense yes, but there is no evidence that a stand down order was issued. There would be no reason for VP Cheney to issue a stand down order, since he issuing a shoot down order, would have the same effect. I will proceed to show this as a fact along with the disturbing fact that the President of the United States, and the Secretary of Defense, both deserted their posts in a time of war. These two individuals who are the only ones authorized to issue shoot down orders of civilian aircraft, created the stand down, by deserting their posts, and then further disgraced themselves, and their offices, by lying to the American people.
"On September the 11th, enemies of freedom committed an act of war against our country." - Pres G Bush
First - the players involved:
Condoleezza Rice -- National Security Adviser
Dick Cheney -- Vice President of the United States
Donald Rumsfeld - Secretary of Defense
George W Bush - President of the United States
The person in this video clip claiming he is not going to hold anyone accountable for "failures" that resulted in the attacks of 9-11 was awarded the Presidential medal of freedom award and a million dollar book deal.
"President Bush awarded the nation's highest civilian honor Tuesday to three men central to his Iraq policy, saying they had played "pivotal roles in great events."
"Tenet left the CIA in July after seven years as director. He has been criticized for intelligence failures before the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and the never-proven prewar allegations that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction."
"Mr. Bush credited him as "one of the first to recognize and address the threat to America from radical networks." He said that after Sept. 11, Tenet was "ready with a plan to strike back at al Qaeda and to topple the Taliban."

F.B.I. Asks Panel to Delay Report on Anthrax Inquiry
By SCOTT SHANE
WASHINGTON — The Federal Bureau of Investigation has requested a last-minute delay in the release of a report on the bureau’s anthrax investigation by the National Academy of Sciences, prompting a congressman to say that the bureau “may be seeking to try to steer or otherwise pressure” the academy’s scientific panel “to reach a conclusion desired by the bureau.”
Representative Rush D. Holt, a Democrat of New Jersey and a physicist who has often been critical of the investigation, made the remarks in a letter Thursday to the F.B.I.’s director, Robert S. Mueller III, saying that he found the bureau’s request for a delay “disturbing.” The F.B.I. has told the committee that it wants to turn over an additional 500 pages of investigative documents not provided previously despite the committee’s request for all relevant material when it began the review in April 2009.
Before 9/11, In 2001, From Feb to July 2001 a trial was going on in NYC. It was called "USA v. Usama bin Laden et al". It was over in July 2001 but not the sentencing part. The sentencing came after 9/11 in Oct 2001. The only defendant that didn't receive his sentencing was the only one that had already pleaded guilty. His name was Ali Mohammed.

"The curtain came down on the embassy bombings trial on Thursday when a federal judge sentenced four men to life in prison for attacks on U.S. embassies in East Africa three years ago."
"Mohamed al-'Owhali, Khalfan Khamis Mohamed, Mohamed Odeh and Wadih el Hage each got life without parole for their roles in near simultaneous attacks August 7, 1998, on embassies at Kenya and Tanzania."
"The sentencing marked the conclusion of the only U.S. prosecution to date involving members of al Qaeda, the militant group headed by accused terrorist Osama bin Laden."
"Besides the four men sentenced on Thursday, another defendant, Ali Mohamed, pleaded guilty last year."
Why I "support" the official story.
By "Official Story" I am referring to Government Investigations into the 9-11 attacks, official government documents, Mainstream news reports, and reports from established "mainstream" authors.
The official story tells us that when given repeated warnings of a catastrophic attack, the Secretary of Defense deserted his post when the attacks finally happened on 9-11, along with the President of the United States, who not only deserted his post but lied to the American People as to the Motive behind the attacks and committed obstruction of justice and treason while conducting a cover up. The official story tells us that VP Dick Cheney and National Security Adviser C Rice are both liars that lied about the events that took place on 9-11. The official story tells us that the U.S. Government knew exactly what the conclusions of the NIST Investigation into the WTC disaster would be before NIST even was assigned to do an investigation.
"There are people who hate freedom. This is a fight for freedom." - President Bush
He seems to be Naval Aide Douglas Cochrane. I'll get to how he is identified in a moment. First.....
The 9-11 commission has this scenario in the PEOC, instead of the one described by N Mineta.....
"At some time between 10:10 and 10:15, a military aide told the Vice President and others that the aircraft was 80 miles out. Vice President Cheney was asked for authority to engage the aircraft. His reaction was described by Scooter Libby as quick and decisive, "in about the time it takes a batter to decide to swing." The Vice President authorized fighter aircraft to engage the inbound plane. He told us he based this authorization on his earlier conversation with the President. The military aide returned a few minutes later, probably between 10:12 and 10:18, and said the aircraft was 60 miles out. He again asked for authorization to engage. The Vice President again said yes"
Assisting the 9-11 hijackers and their Saudi Agent "babysitters", close to the Bush family and secret meetings with the head of the CIA. Prince Bandar is the common link between the hijackers, Saudi Intelligence, U.S. Intelligence, and the Bush Administration.
"Bandar's father is Prince Sultan, one of the seven sons of Abdul Aziz, the founder of modern Saudi Arabia."
"Tenet and his briefers informed Cheney and President Bush of the intercepted communications. Then they went to see Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar bin Sultan. Bandar greeted the delegation arriving at his palatial home in northern Virginia, Tenet and his small band of deputies. They hugged. Tenet is a hugger. He and Bandar have passed countless hours together, trust building, a Tenet specialty."
Admitted in 9-11 Commission:
Before 9/11 there was the '93 attacks on the WTC and the near catastrophe of project Bojinka. But what was kept secret was another plan in it's idea stage. A plan involving flying airplanes into buildings. Which is probably why everything on the following FBI interview form is blocked out regarding the interrogation of KSM nephews' partner Abdul Murad, who with KSM nephew Ramzi Yousef were the masterminds of project bojinka. They don't want to prove Bush and Rice liars when they claim, "no one could have imagined flying airplanes into buildings". Murad was arrested in 1995 by the Philippine authorities.
Murad stated that the goal of the attacks was to “make the American people and the American government suffer for their support of Israel.”
"Americans are asking, "Why do they hate us?" They hate our freedoms: our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other." - G Bush
George W. Bush: "I saw an airplane hit the Tower... and I thought that"s one terrible pilot..."
Why would he claim he saw the first plane hit before stepping into the classroom? And really.......a Commercial Airliner hits the WTC and the President thinks..."that's one terrible pilot"? Really? I guess he thought the Commercial Airliner Co- pilot must have been even worse, or asleep, you'd think the co-pilot would at least ask, "uh...any reason why we are flying hundreds of miles off course into a major city, Captain?"
There seems to be a bit of controversy in the so called "9/11 Truth Movement" on whether the phone calls from the planes were fake or not. The most well known proponent of this theory is David Ray Griffin and his take on the Barbara Olson phone calls to her husband Ted Olson. Let's examine this closely and see if there is any merit to this "fake Phone calls" theory. I would hope that the 9/11 truth crowd is serious on promoting the truth, and solid evidence, being responsible and promoting well researched factual "evidence".
The "Fake" Phone calls According to David Ray Griffin (DRG)...
"Olson’s Story Contradicted by the FBI"
"The most serious official contradiction of Ted Olson’s story came in 2006 at the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, the so-called 20th hijacker. The evidence presented to this trial by the FBI included a report on phone calls from all four 9/11 flights."
"In its report on American Flight 77, the FBI report attributed only one call to Barbara Olson and it was an “unconnected call,” which (of course) lasted "0 seconds."
The famous document authorizing shoot down of planes dated 1 June 2001. It's been said this was changed just before 9/11, in June, to give the Sec of Defense authority to order shoot down aircraft. Actually it was updated from 1997 and hardly anything changed from the 1997 order but this is an important document nontheless..........
"1. Purpose. This instruction provides guidance to the Deputy Director for Operations (DDO), National Military Command Center (NMCC), and operational commanders in the event of an aircraft piracy (hijacking) or request for destruction of derelict airborne objects."
"NMCC is the focal point within Department of Defense for providing assistance. In the event of a hijacking, the NMCC will be notified by the most expeditious means by the FAA. The NMCC will, with the exception of immediate responses as authorized by reference d, forward requests for DOD assistance to the Secretary of Defense for approval."

I'm Not a Lawyer But I Know How To Read
The Charges are Obstruction of Justice and Treason Concerning the Attacks of 9/11
The Charge of Obstruction of Justice:
"Law Encyclopedia: Obstruction of Justice
The criminal offense, under common law and according to the statutes of many jurisdictions, of obstructing the administration and due process of law."
"This entry contains information applicable to United States law only."
"A criminal offense that involves interference, through words or actions, with the proper operations of a court or officers of the court."
"Obstruction of justice in the federal courts is governed by a series of criminal statutes (18 U.S.C.A. §§ 1501-1517), which aim to protect the integrity of federal judicial proceedings as well as agency and congressional proceedings. Section 1503 is the primary vehicle for punishing those who obstruct or who endeavor to obstruct federal judicial proceedings."
Two 110 story buildings gone before our eyes in less than 10 seconds. The following... IMO is the normal reaction as it happened, and the reaction I had at the time...from a CNBC anchorman on 9/11.....
Several hours later the cover up and lies were officially entered into the record when President Bush went on TV to address the nation.....
1:06 mark..."terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shattered steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve. America was targeted for attack because we are the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world and no none will keep that light from shining."
Why did Bush stop The Senate And Congressional Intelligence joint inquiry investigators from interviewing an Informant who was the landlord of some alleged hijackers who the CIA "accidentally" let into the country?
This isn't a "conspiracy theory" it's a fact. From the report by THE HOUSE PERMANENT SELECT COMMITTEE ON INTELLIGENCE AND THE SENATE SELECT COMMITTEE ON INTELLIGENCE...
"The Administration has to date objected to the Inquiry’s efforts to interview the informant in order to attempt to resolve those inconsistencies. The Administration also would not agree to allow the FBI to serve a Committee subpoena and deposition notice on the informant. Instead, written interrogatories from the Joint Inquiry were, at the suggestion of the FBI, provided to the informant. Through an attorney, the informant has declined to respond to those interrogatories and has indicated that, if subpoenaed, the informant would request a grant of immunity prior to testifying."
Because our fearless king is a traitor who is protecting Saudi Arabia.
To believe the Government had advanced knowledge of 9/11 and allowed it to happen or even helped facilatate it is rather hard to believe for some, and debunkers of "9/11 truth" would rather believe official Government documents, and reports, along with mainstream media coverage for their information on wether or not there is any truth of advanced knowledge.
Trying to convince someone that the WTC was blown to pieces with explosives is impossible for some to grasp and understandibly so. In order to even start to believe that you have to believe that it was known that there would be an attack, and have detailed knowledge of it.
So for those that don't believe it could be an "inside job", I will use these official government reports and mainstream media reports to show it is not irrational to come to this conclusion, but rather logical.
"Nobody in our government, at least, and I don't think the prior government, could envision flying airplanes into buildings on such a massive scale."-Pres G Bush
