Author calls 9/11 conspiracy theorists "bat-shit crazy"...

J.D. Tuccille, a libertarian writer whose columns have appeared in the Washington Times, the Arizona Republic and others and is usually a well reasoned individual, just published a blog entry titled "Something that's not Bush's fault". From reading it, it's easy to tell he has dismissed the idea outright due to "government incompetence".

I'm not going to bother engaging in a point-by-point rebuttal of 9/11 conspiracy theories. I'll just ask: Do you really think that a government that routinely loses laptop computers containing important data when it's not leaking like a sieve by design, and which regularly screws up important missions, is actually capable of carrying out a massive conspiracy to attack and defraud the American people?

If so, you have a higher regard for government competence than I do.

Incompetence Theories.

Why the fuck do these guys think our government is so incompetent, yet 19 terrrorists from a cave are so competent that they can fly through our defense systems and bring down buildings over an hour long time period and show up alive in other countries years later. These guys are weak intellectually and probably find comfort in their lack of analysis.

MIHOP <> Bush

I think there is another point worth mentioning. When somebody says MIHOP, the statement has no subject. The question is: __who__ MIHOP? I suppose that most people automatically assume Bush, or Cheney, or the Neocons are directly responsible. Indeed, many 9-11 researchers make statements to that effect.

This may be true. Certainly without complicity of some parties within the government 9-11 would not have happened. But in my opinion it is a big mistake to silently assume MIHOP = "Bush did it", not least because it does defy reason and what we otherwise know of Bush. And since we have no direct proof of anyone's personal involvement, we become an easy target for this line of "debunking".

Personally, I think there is something to Webster Tarpley's assessment of Bush being as much a patsy as the supposed hijackers. I think Bush was as much the target audience on 9-11, if you will, as we all were. But Tarpley then points to people like Cheney, who do have the intellectual capacity, and I think this may be a dead end too.

If you listen to people like Indira Singh, Sibel Edmonds, even Richard Grove (though he seems to be a latecomer and not particularly coherent), there are huge aspects of the story that have received relatively little scrutiny: the financing aspect, the drug-running aspect, money laundering (someone had to PAY for 9-11), the potentially rogue software running at most government bureaucracies, and I'm not even approaching the really weird stuff.

Very few people are looking into these issues, maybe because this is when it gets really complex, and where, it seems, it becomes life-threatening (Gary Webb is but one example). Meanwhile, the question of WHO is bigger than the question of HOW, but no amount of WTC debris analysis will bring us any closer to answering that.

The Bush admin must have had a hand in 9-11. Likewise the military, likewise someone within the FAA, and FBI. But most of the people there may have just been following orders or regulations (like the modified FAA scramble procedures), without necessarily understanding what they are doing or why.

So I think we are doing ourselves a disservice by saying MIHOP without qualifying the WHO. Some people will believe it was Bush himself, and that's fine with me though I disagree. I am only proposing that we start paying more attention to that part of the story, and that those who do NOT think "Bush did it" make it very clear, so that the detractors have to exert themselves a little more than just say Bush is too dumb.

ED: typos

Bush was not the mastermind (surprise)

He said "find me a way to do this" referring to toppling Saddam, after he was installed as President by people with more power than he.

His underlings (who are all in fact smarter than he is) said OK, we'll find him a way alright. Since Bush is the kind of leader you would expect to agree with the philosophy of I don't care how it's done as llong as it's done, and if I could get in trouble for knowing how it is done, then don't tell me how you did it. Plausible deniability--very useful to have if you're the one person on the planet who can pardon criminals for no reason.

So the neocons had been brought in and said--OK we just need a new pearl harbor now. Let's make one happen and blame it on bin Laden and arab muslims, and call it al Qaeda. Larry S had lost in bidding for the towers until the winning bidders withdrew their offer at which point he acquired the ready-to-condemn towers. As owner of building 7 which housed all kinds of govt offices he was well connected to both American AND Israeli heavy hitters. Not bad for a self-made real-estate billionaire and strip-club owner.

Demolitions are complex, though, and you need the material AND the muscle. If you know the right people you can get the explosives on the black market, and if you have the conenctions you can get away with all manner of smuggling things around. Then you need some manpower and you can't exactly put out want ads, so you look for demolition and explosive experts. It would be extremely difficult to find enough Americans willing to secretly rig 2 American landmarks for demolition, so naturally you might consider outsourcing that bit to foreigners. Given the neocons and Larry S are prime suspects, it stands to reason that Israel's right wing leaders would have been happy to oblige them in manufacturing a "terror attack" that would benefit Israel (in their sick minds) tremendously.

With the Neocons firmly in control of the Pentagon it was not hard for Cheney and Rummy to create the circumstances whereby it could be credible posited that multiople hijackings actually occurred on 9/11 so that the assorted damage, to the Pentagon, the field in Shanksville, and most importantly the twin towers could be explained.

When we boil it down to its essence, this story is quite simple and to suggest that responsibility for it lies with a globalist NWO is speculation in the extreme. Remember, the simplest answer TENDS to be the correct one. Given all the facts that we need to account for, I think this is the simplest explanation that takes it all into consideration.

We've spoken at some length before...

... so you know, RT, that I have lived a life worthy of saying truthfully... that I fully and deeply appreciate the striking difference between the compassionate, learned culture and long history of Judaism... vs. the appallingly hypocritical manifestation of the Israeli nation state.

So that said...

May I invite you with all humility, kindness and loyalty to our joint truth seeking path... to please tone down and/or reduce by some measure... what many others have also noted.... your growing fixation with invoking Israeli Zionism into your posts.

You say so much that it is truly wonderful, insightful and intelligent... yet your growing frequency of highlighting the possibility, and even probability, of some level of Mossad involvement is starting to look imbalanced, on the whole. Please consider. Thanks.


Is that a word you would apply to some people's interest in Pakistan?

I mean no disrespect, Erin, and I am not the person who voted your post down, but it concerns me greatly that you would seek to quiet RT.

i voted it down. i think

i voted it down. i think there is a piling on effect here in regard to RT and his views on Israel. nothing he has said has been racist or anti-semitic as far as i can tell and i too find it disturbing that some people are telling others to not talk about certain subjects.

Yes, I completely agree.

We're at the stage in uncovering material when we need to be talking MORE about extreme Zionists (both American and/or Israeli), not less. Larry S should have been center-stage as a suspect party from the get-go not only because of the insurance fraud angle, but because he is quite obviously buddy-buddy with the group of people who brought us "A Clean Break," some of whom went on to write the PNAC doc. The two documents are peas in a neo-con, racist, imperialist pod.

There have been posters here who were quite strident in their demands that fingers not be pointed at Larry. Now, either these people were ignorant of material that is really quite easy to find online, or they had/have some sort of protective agenda.

I see.

To be clearer... I in no way meant for my words to sound like I wanted ANYONE to talk less.... I was simply commenting our our joint need to express with 'balance' as best we can. (I'm sure RT took it the right way, but I too will also work harder toward incorporating the items he (also many others) raises, and place them into ever larger context as well. Thanks.)

your tone is appreciated but I must decline your invitation

Imbalance is something I see in the world around me, and if I come across as too eager to point the finger in the direction of Israel and Zionists it is perhaps because we live in a world where that is not nearly, by any stretch of the imagination, anywhere near as common as similar finger pointing for all manner of evil at Arabs, Muslims, Blacks, Latinos, the poor and a number of other groups that I either belong to or have come to feel solidarity with.

I also understand and act on the need to be perfectly clear what the things I point out mean and do not mean, justify and do not justify. It has for some tiome now been in vogue to speak "frankly" about the need for groups other than one's own to acknowledge their failings instead of seeking always to avoid this by appealing to the injustices visited on them by others. Black people are told that slavery is not to blame for deadbeat dads, hispanics are told that they don't get better jobs because they don't try hard enough to assimilate, and the poor are told to stop whining and to work harder and get better educations.

In a country where the Israel lobby is one of the most influential and feared by our politicians, I will not shrink from calling on my fellow citizens who happen to be Jewish to grow a spine already and stop deluding themselves into thinking that there is anything holy about the Zionist state. Israel refers to a people, not a parcel of land. The Zionist state on the other hand is an illegal and immoral entity, a modern relic of long since discredited racist colonialism. To give a foreign country carte blanche to do us harm because some of our citizens feel a strong attachment to that foreign country is absurd. Why should this matter any more than the opinion of Iraqi Americans mattered when our national security was allegedly being put in jeopardy by THEIR historic homeland?

If you would like to clarify what you mean by imbalanced, perhaps by pointing out how the mountains of circumstantial evidence pointing to Israeli complicity in 9/11 and also espionage against the United States do not merit the amount of attention I pay to them, I would be happy to discuss. Otherwise I find the request to "lay off Israel" to be unreasonable and counter-productive, not to mention slightly hypocritical given the lack of concern you seem to have for similar focusing by others on countries with far less to explain with regard to their participation in the events of 9/11 and its aftermath.

With all due respect, and in the best of faith,

I agree.

Evidence is evidence, and there can be no sacred cows here. Israel is perpetrating terror upon Palestinians (and vice/versa). Silverstein is CLEARLY guilty of insurance fraud.

Just be aware RT, the anti-semitism thing is one of the NWO's "aces in the hole". Israel and Judaism HAVE become sacred cows in this country, and this is intentionally being used to discredit anyone who speaks against the Children of Yaweh. There is also a conscious effort to attach anti-semitism to the Truth Movement. Speak with caution. Speak only the VERIFIABLE truth.

All's good.

We're still kicking ass and taking names... inspite of ourselves being complete novices by comparison to the bastards with literal mountains of money willing to play every dirty trick in the book.

I'm in no way speaking against the "children of Yaweh"

I am speaking against those who would perpetuate lies meant to divide anyone--children of Yaweh, Buddha, Gaea, or simply woman--from their fellow children of what not. If we are to succeed in saving humanity from its rotten elements we must all come to terms with painful truths. I was not taught the entire truth about my country as a child and went through the painful awakening to the ugly reality that I have very little to be proud of before my birth--very few of us do. Human history is to date a fairly wretched thing and rather than contribute to perpetuating that I am going to live the rest of my life suffering whatever is thrown at me for what I believe in my heart to be true. If that means that I will never be popular or loved then so be it. I did not take the 9/11 truth plunge lightly nor with any expectation of reward. We will all be tempted at some point, if not perpetually, to settle for something less than the truth because we will be made to think that we are wrong for demanding more. Those who can resist this bait of praise and popularity will be the ones who will sacrifice ourselves if necessary to break open the last remaining gate holding humanity back from real freedom. Breaking the last shackle of mental slavery on earth will be its own reward. We who have freed ourselves already have our reward, it's up to us to see that future generations have a chance to share in it, to know what it is to be free.

Nice work!

Always wanted to look a bit deeper at the Post Inauguration Pre-911 Bush. Did he do anything in his first 9 months in office?

There is more behind NWO Elite theory...

North American Union, EU spiraling out of electorate's control, OBVIOUS AND WELL DOCUMENTED runaway capitalism/corporatism/globalism, corporate influence in politics, cronyism, "interlocking boards of directorate"... The NWO thing has just as much overwhelming evidence to support it as does 9/11. Cui bono from police state and false flags?? THE ELITE.

Simplest answer to 9/11 would be "They hate our freedom". Occam's Razor is not the be-all-end-all.

The 9/11 What and Who

I think we are doing ourselves a disservice by saying MIHOP without qualifying the WHO.

Yes, but I also think we are doing ourselves a greater disservice by not qualifying specifically WHO (This, This and That person) are without first proving our case that WHO were indeed involved.

Saying “Americans” or “Neo-Cons” or “Zionists” DID 9/11 is too vague. Did they ALL do it? If we can’t claim that ALL of them did, claiming “this group” did 9/11 is irresponsible and potentially offensive to those who are innocent, and offensive to others who believe in the concept of “innocent until proven guilty”.

Of course, there is a qualifying difference between saying we suspect these people MAY be involved, and “they DID it”. But how do we find out WHO did 9/11 conclusively? An investigation.

How do we GET that investigation? We can’t answer WHO DID 9/11, unless we prove WHAT happened. An investigation to answer WHO comes from answering WHAT happened.

Incompetence defense is faulty.

The 9/11 Conspiracy wasn't very competent at all. Once one begins to actually look at the events rationally, it collapses in moments. The only thing that has kept it alive this long is the level of brainwashing the public has been subjected to for decades, and the onslaught of distraction since the event. ...And MSM complicity...

not the government we're dealing with

I've heard this before specifically from libertarians, whose general lack of regard for the government leads them to think this way. What I generally try to point out to these people is that this isn't the government per-say that we're dealing with. We are dealing with a rogue cabal which isn't subject to the usual beauacratic vagaries of government agencies. We're dealing with a tight-knit "cult of evil" for which the inexpediences of democracy are no obstacle, because that isn't how they work.

Spot on operator kos...

It too gets on my nerves, when they just say "the government did it"... It almost feels deliberate, a strawman distraction if you may...

I like what you say...

where race, religion or similar is not the common ground, the only common factor is that they are willing to mass murder without any conscience, for greed and power.

Notice how these criminals refuse to be put under oath for any reason.... at all costs. What do they fear most? What question may be asked while testifying?

Questions pertaining to 911 could be brought out at any time. They are fully aware of where we have placed them. Their defense looks beyond the limits of a wrongful firing of a government prosecutor.

Could these prosecutors have been barking up the wrong tree?
Together in Truth!

The government (system, not necessarily ALL members) is corrupt.

The government is helping either actively or through silence/inaction to bring about One World Government. Patriot Act(s), Military Commissions Act, John Warner Defense Spending Authorization for Fiscal Year 2007, North American Union, NOT IMPEACHING/INDICTING FOR BLATANT WAR CRIMES... If any of you are actually studying what is happening in government, and not just the "conspiracy theory" side of things, you'll see that the current system of democracy/capitalism has been thoroughly and completely co-opted and corrupted. Stolen elections, gerrymandering, nepotism, media monopolies...

Silence is complicity in times of treason. The crime of the century has occurred. Our supposed stewards in the government are silent on the issue. How can you excuse them? And like I said, while there still might be good people in the government, the SYSTEM is shot. Time for an overhaul.

These libertarians get the hairs on the back of my neck to stick out at 90 degrees! What a dumb so & so. I've left my comment for him to look up Gladio, Operation Ajax, Northwoods, etc. Notice how he used the method of us all being loonies through association when talking about the European Vegan that attempted to convince everybody to stop eating meat and believe in the 9/11 Conspiracy Theories .

Names Dropping

I don't disagree that there is a cabal responsible but anyone got names?

Who is this cult of evil? Who makes up this small cabal of rouge elements? Who is the leader of this cabal?

Another thing to realize is that the entire official investigation into 9/11 was stonewalled by the Bush administration and Congress allowed this to happen and continues to go down the road to 9/11 Cover-up.

The willing participants in the cover-up just might have achieved something just as bad as the attacks themselves....

Those participating in the coverup have said "...huge attacks on the United States will not be investigated. We will allow the executive branch to stonewall, cover-up, lie, cheat, and violate the constitution today and again tomorrow."

I think our problem is much bigger then 9/11...if that's possible.

Peter Hans Kolvenbach (Superior General of the Jesuits)

... better known as the Black Pope ("he stands in the shadow of the Pope").

Until people begin to understand the long history (hundreds of years!) of Jesuit controlled conspiracies planted against the people of America, 9/11 will be but an event in a series of events to oppress and control free people.

Anyone who doubts the financial and political power of the Jesuits and their masonic network has not been paying attention to the facts.

The Jesuit mafia network control the Vatican state, Federal Reserve, CFR, CIA, UN, Mossad, Freemasonry (with strong links to corporate boards), Labor Zionism, Bilderberg events and various 'religious' cults (Mormonism, Scientology, OTO) and military orders (Knights of Columbus / Knights of Malta / P2 Lodge).

Terrorism is the new Cold War / Communism hoax. War, war and more war. Start reading history beyond 9/11, and you will see a conspiracy which has been in the making for centuries.

Too funny

I'm sorry, I can't stop laughing. I really should read your links first beore dismissing the "Black Pope" and his ultimate reign of evil unhindered.

70 Disturbing Facts About 9/11

John Doraemi publishes Crimes of the State Blog

You should at least be able to refute what I suggest.

Individual shock and denial is the same mechanism which made 9/11 work for them. Its why the big conspiracies and the consequential media lies can work. Most people are not willing to do the thinking and research for themselves. A sovereign nation requires sovereign people.

Laughing because they don't think it is likely is what many others do about 9/11 "conspiracy theories". Yet some dared to look at the facts and came to serious conclusions which are hard to refute. I suggest you do the same, or 9/11 will have thought you very little.

NOT Incompetence.

I like Nafeez Ahmed's original and classic repsonse:

9/11 "Conspiracies" and the Defactualisation of Analysis

There are many ways of approaching this bogus incompetence argument. The way I prefer is to point at Bush sitting in the classroom. Just who is being incompetent here? The Secret Service is incompetent?

They weren't incompetent when they moved Bush out of his high rise 2 months previously in Genoa Italy when a warning of suicide hijackings of commercial jets was received. (LA TIMES 9-27-01)

You're saying that they were competent when they only had warnings, but when REAL suicide hijackings crash into two major US buildings, they suddenly don't know how to secure the president and move him to a safe undisclosed location?

Why was Ari Fleischer holding up a sign telling Bush, "DON'T SAY ANYTHING YET?" Don't say anything, WHY? (Wash. Times 10-7-02)

Cheney was deeply involved in the stand down and the confusion in our air defense system. We can link him to being the man in control of the exercises -- perhaps 15 or more, which means scheduling so many on the same day, that day.

Cheney admits that his story was in discussing whether or not to put a scrambled jet in the same airspace as hijacked jets (Tim Russert interview) knowing full well that was standard operating procedure.

Mineta has him issuing orders related to the Pentagon attack, and lying about the time he arrived in the PEOC.

Rumsfeld was supposed to give "approval" for scrambling fighters, but he never did. He pretended he didn't know what was going on for an hour and a half until an unknown plane smashed into his own building! On the other side of the complex, of course.

Go into my 70 facts below and see the testmony of Robert Wright, Sibel Edmonds, and Thomas Pickard.

Cheney, Bush and the rest of the perps in the administration have their fingerprints all over 9/11.

But, they are only middle management. We need to get the investigations and get at the elites who own the store.

The ultimate limited hangout is letting ALL the neocons get hung out to dry for Iraq and 9/11 and keeping any investigations from looking past them.

Keep up the great work, johndoraemi!

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

the problem is bigger than the original perps

Assuming the perps are not at the very top of the food chain, then we run into the problem that regardless of who the pers are, whoever is above them in the food chain is either an idiot or complicit in the cover-up. When the truth is widely known and cannot be ignored, many people will have to answer the question of what they knew, when did they know it, and why did they do nothing about it.

Whoever the perps were, they sure did seem to convince a lot of people that since they would never be discovered, it would be safe to join in the piñata grab that became the post 9/11 "globa security swindle" including the Iraq War

We must never be satisfied that justice has been done just because a few people are hung out to dry. Every admission of guilt will lead to additional questions and while we can certainly argue for immunity for those with less severe involvement if it helps expose higher up conspirators we cannot rest until the entire truth is known. That is the "eternal vigilance" part of freedom.

9/11 is the tip of the preverbal iceberg.

First, I wish to thank each and everyone for working so hard (for no money, it should be clearly noted) to pry open and back the lie of 911. As for the dazed Americans (the last ones to face this all), the process appears to be a work-in-reverse as far as facing lies, deceit, and extraordinary corruption in government... the AG's voter vs. vote fraud... Iraq... Bin forgotten... THEN 911.

But our work has hardly even begun; inequitable versions of Globalization... money manipulations... Statism vs. humanity.

If I could be so bold, please allow me to suggest (invite) all those who've gotten a taste for the pursuit of truth and justice... that we consider ourselves as only just beginning... that we learn and grow from all this experience, and take it upon ourselves to continue such work well into our gray years... and leave something truly precious for our children and humankind to build upon for lightyears to come.

I'm gonna be a jerk...

It's "proverbial" as in "proverb" ( –noun 1. a short popular saying, usually of unknown and ancient origin, that expresses effectively some commonplace truth or useful thought; adage; saw.), and a lightyear is a measure of distance, not time. (The amount of distance light travels in one year.)

Nitpicking aside, I agree with you. Keep up the fight for truth until you make your big exit.

... just a dumb spellcheck oversight. Yet I definitely meant lightyears... as in humanity literally going the distance. We won't have much of a chance making even a few more turns round the sun, if humanity can't get its proverbial head out of its ass.

9/11 Truth -- The Path to Peace

Three stages of truth


It would appear to be an indelible human trait that the 'truth' about all issues goes through three distinct phases known colloquially as "the three stages of truth". During the first stage, the issue goes unnoticed and is ignored. The second stage is characterised by a period of vehement denial. The third stage witnesses the the truth about the issue being recognised as self evident.
