George Washington's Blog Compares 9/11 to a Bank Heist

If Its Broken, Why Haven't They Fixed It? - George Washington's Blog

A bank is robbed in an unusual way. Burglars break in through an air conditioning vent and shine a laser at the video cameras to "blind" them. Millions are stolen.

The bank president announces that no one could have foreseen this type of burglary.

The commission investigating the robbery -- stacked with the bank president's business partners and friends -- finds that the break-in was unexpected. The commission makes numerous suggestions on how to thwart similar burglaries by installing motion detectors in the air conditioning vents and bank vault.

Independent researchers, however, discover that there have been many previous break-ins where the burglars crawled in through the air conditioning vents and shined lasers at video cameras.

They also discover that the bank's security system would normally have caught the burglars in the act and alerted the local police in time to stop the burglarly, but the system was undergoing a series of "safety tests" that night -- including some that were similar to what actually occurred -- and so the police assumed that the alarms were part of the test (there had been safety tests before; but never so many at the same time; the bank president personally scheduled multiple, overlapping tests for the night of the robbery, and then oversaw the operation of the tests and the bank's reaction to those tests).

Years pass, and the bank president does not follow the commission's recommendations. He fails to install any motion detectors.

That's circumstantial evidence that the bank president was in on the heist. Why? Because if he was innocent and if the robbery really had not been foreseeable, he would have a very strong incentive to install motion detectors to prevent further robberies at his bank. You can bet that he'd shore up the bank's defenses.

That essay is great... really allows you to examine the circumstances surrounding 9/11 without talking about it. Allows you to step back and use your head, not your emotions.

yeah, i wholeheartedly agree. count me in as a big fan too. i've posted many bulletins on MySpace linking to GWs eloquently written blogs. he definitely has a way of conveying the message.

Thanx for posting this.

Thanx for posting this. We've been discussing this post on the st911 forum.

My comments:

One thing missing from this analogy is the reactionism from the bank. If the robbers were a couple of high school kids desperate for attention, yearning to be noticed, and these kids garnered so much attention that they land on the cover of Time magazine, this would be indicitive that the bank helped them accomplish their goals by illicting the desired reaction, thus mutually accomplishing both objectives.

GW's is a variation on the

GW's is a variation on the Ruppert/Robinowitz parable. I like it.
Scroll down for the parables on oilempire.

"Imagine a hypothetical situation where a team of vicious thieves plots an exceptionally violent bank robbery in the downtown financial district of a major city. Numerous anomalies are noticed during the commission of this crime.

The bank tellers are not able to send out an alarm to the police even though banks have numerous hidden silent alarms for foiling robbery. The guards at the bank somehow take much longer to call the police for assistance than they have done on previous occasions, raising questions among bank customers whether orders were given to the the guards to "stand down" and not interfere.

The police take an extraordinarily long amount of time to show up on the scene, despite an unblemished record of fast response to prior robberies.

The cops who do eventually respond are not dispatched from the nearest police station, but from a suburban police force many miles away that travels far below emergency speeds to intercept the robbers. Some of the responding officers travel the exact opposite direction from the bank when they do leave the station, and arrive on the scene too late to catch the criminals"...

Thanks, all, for your support :)

I think Rabinowitz and Ruppert's parables are brilliant, but too complicated for my purpose (which is also why I'm leaving out Valis' -- another brilliant individual -- overreaction suggestion).

My purpose was to focus just on the didn't-correct-supposed-security-lapses angle.

Nice metaphor, but there

Nice metaphor, but there actually was a heist. Apparently WTC held one of the largest stores of gold. All that was left was an abandon truck with a flat tire filled with gold (in the lower subway levels). The rest of the gold is unaccounted for.

Also, I'm sure you're aware of the all the market trading going on prior to the event.

Also there's Silverstein's tidy little windfall on his insurance claim.

Sorry, but these "facts" are crucial. I don't like playing fast & loose regarding the truth in a mass murder.

The real perpetrators are basically tap dancing on the graves of 3,000 victims.

Neither do I which is why the facts need to be solid and incontrovertible.

GW: The gold angle is probably right. From a possible $16B to have a reported $220M recovered? I don't have the facts, but it is a preposterous disparity.
I suspect the bank manager would think of installing smoke detectors because he was worried some fires might break out, someday. Oddly, those fires would occur on the same day that he was going to schedule some test fires...

so porter goss resigns from another post right around election time. Where's this guy going now? He used to be Florida District 14's House Rep. For some reason I don't think his political career is over.

I think that the only thing

I think that the only thing that matters is that people actually get involved in the obligation of being citizens. People need to try and inform themselves however they can. There's a general sense of wrong that almost everyone feels regarding the current state of affairs worldwide. Our world ?grew? smaller overnite.

Most people simply don't have an attention span to try and link many different apsects of the geo-strategy, and thus, won't even accept it.

Some quotes from Tom Fenton (if you're still reading)

"Americans are too broadly underinformed to digest nuggets of information that seem to contradict what they know of the world ... Instead, news channels prefer to feed Americans a constant stream of simplified information, all of which fits what they already know. That way they don't have to devote more air time or newsprint space to explanations or further investigations."
Tom Fenton, former CBS foreign correspondent

"Politicians and the media have conspired to infantilize, to dumb down, the American public. At heart, politicians don't believe that Americans can handle complex truths, and the news media, especially television news, basically agrees."
Tom Fenton, former CBS foreign correspondent

All people really need to do is check into the people holding office, the agendas (situations) they starting pushing (planning) for yrs. ago, where the financing came from, who made the capital, who was held accountable; (side note: maybe even what jeans we wore, what soda we drank, what shows we watched), and ultimately who suffers.

Big list, huh. Not to mention very ambiguous. Good thing there's a few MILLION of us...

"Such as the "facts" in the

"Such as the "facts" in the Official 9/11 Omission Report???"

Such as what anyone says to be 'facts' whether it's from the government or from Scholars for 9/11 Truth.

We need to question everything.

Who has a tremendous motive

Who has a tremendous motive to lie about 9/11, the gov't or the scholars? Who are proven liars (WMD?) the gov't or the scholars?

Who has a tremendous motive to lie about 9/11, the gov't or the scholars? Who are the proven liars the gov't (WMD?) or the scholars? You seem disingenuous to me, truthin.

These are all

These are all circumstantial.

THE ONLY THING that matters right now is...

Was it a demolition or not.

I believe we can prove that it was beyond a resonable doubt. This is the gateway.

Getting the can open should be our #1 priority.

"Who has a tremendous motive

"Who has a tremendous motive to lie about 9/11, the gov't or the scholars? Who are proven liars (WMD?) the gov't or the scholars?"

History teaches it could be both. That's why we have to question both. That seems to bother you.

Do you work for the gov'y

Do you work for the gov'y truthy?

Certainly you jest (I don't

Certainly you jest (I don't want to say lie) when you claim that truthers have as much motivation to lie as the Gov't.

Not to mention the gov't already are PROVEN LIARS (Iraq, WMD, wiretapping, etc.)

"Certainly you jest (I don't

"Certainly you jest (I don't want to say lie) when you claim that truthers have as much motivation to lie as the Gov't."

I said 'could' refering to the 'scholars'. I ask questions of everyone and you are bothered by it. I wonder what your motivation is not to want to ask questions.

"THE ONLY THING that matters

"THE ONLY THING that matters right now is...

"Was it a demolition or not."

Which is why we have to question everything to get to the truth.

How about some answers?
