Baginski: “9/11 is a gift to NSA. … We are going to get all the money we want”

The new book Watchdogs Didn’t Bark by John Duffy and Ray Nowosielski, reports that former NSA executive and whistleblower Thomas Drake said that former NSA Signals Intelligence Director (#3 at NSA) Maureen Baginski told a group of more than 50 staff just weeks after the 9/11 attacks, the worst intelligence failure in US history since Pearl Harbor, leaving almost 3000 dead: “You have to understand, 9/11 is a gift to NSA. … We are going to get all the money we want” (112–113).

Had to write an article around this mind-blowing statement by Baginski. She doesn't look like a monster in her pic. Props to Jon Gold for getting the quote in 2014. Not sure if Drake had said it publicly before - post here if you know. William Binney repeats it, but has said he heard about it from Drake.

9/11 Watchdogs yank the 'chop chain'- Book review by Erik Larson

The book The Watchdogs Didn't Bark by John Duffy and Ray Nowosielski, with new insider interviews and documentary evidence, convincingly establishes that named people at the CIA and NSA actively prevented the FBI from learning information that could have disrupted the 9/11 plot. Principals at these agencies manipulated government investigations to cover up responsibility, and to exploit the public's fear after 9/11 in order to justify the so-called 'war on terror', the Iraq invasion, torture, the NSA's massive warrantless domestic spying programs, indefinite detention and extrajudicial killing even of Americans.

The Watchdogs Didn't Bark

I read the book. Here are some observations:

:

1) The mainstream coverage of this story has been awful. Mainstream journalists are quick to deride 9/11 truthers but have never accounted for their own conduct. By that I mean the al-Hazmi/al-Mihdhar story is an open conspiracy with no credible government explanation and some of the most respected journalists in the country have simply not covered it. Duffy and Nowosielski deserve credit for their effort.

" 9/11 War Games" by The Corbett Report

Episode 346 – 9/11 War Games on The Corbett Report
Transcript with resources - https://www.corbettreport.com/911wargames/

... Little did we know at the time, 9/11 was not a normal day of blue sky aviation. On the contrary, it was one of the busiest days in the history of American aviation, a dense forest of live fly exercises, drills, simulations, fake radar injects and utter confusion. And that was before the attacks even began.

This is the story of 9/11 that you didn’t watch unfold on your TV that fateful day in 2001. This is the story of the 9/11 War Games....

Explanation of the Evidence at the Pentagon on 9/11

Wayne Coste's epic analysis of the evidence at the Pentagon (originally a 5hr 40 min video Powerpoint) is now available in easily digested chapter-by-chapter form narrated by David Chandler (me). You can find it at http://911speakout.org/wayne-coste/ and/or as a YouTube playlist here:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQDv-sbExGyUlhn_ir15tet5HAGM_eCBA.

Wayne started this project when he was on the other side of the fence, convinced that no plane hit the Pentagon. He was working on a compilation to prove that case and ended up convincing himself otherwise. Anyone who snaps back with a dismissive response in the first 10 minutes has no business commenting. This represents a massive effort and deserves careful consideration and study.

New 9/11 Timeline Entries: Office of Emergency Management on 9/11, FBI's Response to the Attacks, Events at the Pentagon & More

From the History Commons Groups blog:

New entries have been added to the Complete 9/11 Timeline at History Commons, which describe many incidents relating to the 9/11 attacks, including new details of what happened on September 11, 2001, and some notable pre-9/11 events.

Fire Alarm System in WTC 7 Was on 'Test Condition'

Several new timeline entries describe incidents that occurred on September 11 in World Trade Center Building 7, a 47-story skyscraper located north of the Twin Towers that collapsed at 5:20 p.m. that day. At 8:46 a.m., when the first hijacked plane crashed into the North Tower, the electrical power in WTC 7 briefly went off for reasons that are unclear. Similarly, at 9:03 a.m., when the second hijacked plane hit the South Tower, "primary power" was lost and alarms warned that there was no water pressure in the building.
