Please critique my 9/11 blurb

Critique for content, order of presentation, and style. I want something ideally a bit shorter, too, so maybe help identify whole bits that could be removed. I need something for blogging as well to show to people in person who are in denial.
Thanks, E


You say that there's "zero evidence that 9/11 was an inside job?" Where's the evidence for the "official conspiracy theory" (OCT)? The OCT is that 19 box-cutter wielding arabs organized by Osama bin Laden from his cave retreat in Afghanistan orchestrated and carried out 9/11.

There is no way to believe the US Gov't or mainstream media on the events of 9/11. Several problems arise:

1) No such persons could have penetrated the US security barriers if normal operating procedures had been followed. There was an unexpected NORAD stand-down -- normally fighter jets are scrambed within 5 minutes of a plane veering off course. Norman Mineta's testimony underscore's Cheney's culpability in that regard.

2) The Pentagon housed a non-responsive defense secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, who could not be bothered to react in time. Not credible.

3) Hundreds of cameras ring the Pentagon -- not one tape released. Not credible.

4) The section of the pentagon hit was where the auditors worked who were at that time investigating how it was that the Pentagon “lost” 2.3 TRILLION dollars (announced by Rummy on 9/10/01 and conveniently forgotten by the MSM ever since).

5) Miliary exercises planned and carried out on 9/11/01 (normally carried out in Oct or Nov) mirrored the attacks perfectly - just as the exercises in London on the day of 7/7/5. It looks like a good way to sow confusion, and easily let a few of the teams "go live."

6) No proof was ever adduced that Osama bin Laden had anything to do with the attacks. We invaded Afghanistan instead of simply providing evidence that bin Laden was responsible in exchange for the Taliban's agreement to hand over bin Laden if such evidence was proffered. The FBI doesn’t even list Osama as wanted for the crimes of 9/11. The only “proof” was a video conveniently “found” by US forces in Afghanistan; the person purported to be Osama in the video is fat, uses the wrong hand, has a different facial structure than Osama, etc.

7) Several of the "terrorists" have been interviewed by the BBC! There's no proof that any arab hijackers were even on the planes. No arab names appeared on any flight manifests, for example, and only two highly disputed phone calls from planes mention hijackers at all.

8) Flight patterns of the supposedly hijacked planes appeared well beyond what amateur pilots trained on single-engine Cessnas could do.

9) The damage allegedly due to the planes hitting the Twin Towers does not match the final outcome -- pulverized concrete, steel beams ejected 600 feet from the buildings, collapse at near-free-fall speed, molten steel in the basement for months, eyewitness identification of explosions prior to and after plane impact, seismic data consistent with explosive devices, etc.

10) Building 7 -- no reason for this building to fall WHATSOEVER. (Unless you count insurance fraud by its lease-holder, Larry Silverstein [on video admitted that the building was pulled], and destruction of documents; it housed the SEC, CIA, and several other interesting groups.) As an interesting footnote, both the BBC and CNN announced that this building had collapsed before it did, and firefighters cleared people away in anticipation of the building's collapse.

11) If the buildings exploded, how could they have wired them up in the time allotted? -- They could have had weeks or months to plan and execute the set up, given that Marvin & Wirt Bush, GW's brother and cousin, respectively, were in charge of security.

12) Who else is implicated? Israeli spies, Mossad agents, were spotted gleefully dancing, and their van had cash, box-cutters, explosives, and other people's passports in it. Guess what? We let them go, quietly, back to Israel. I wouldn’t pin it all on Israel, but somebody’s definitely got some ‘splainin’ to do…

13) The US officials claimed to have "no idea" about the impending attacks - yet within minutes had a suspect (Osama) and within 48 hours, had all 19 “hijackers” up on tv screens for all the world to see. Immediately, a motive (‘they hate us for our freedom’ ) and plans to retaliate were presented.

14) Retaliation was swift and diffuse - against enemies foreign and domestic: The Patriot Act -- hundreds of pages long (obviously prepared months in advance)-- passed within weeks. Politicians who demurred against the Patriot Act (Leahy & Daschl) were targeted with anthrax, a crime yet to be investigated thoroughly -- although the preliminary tests indicate US-weapons grade anthrax was used. Since then, we've seen the Bill of Rights dismantled -- good-bye habeas corpus, hello torture, hello wire-tapping. Freedom of the press, speech, and probably the internet will be next.

15) Who benefits? Military/defense contractors, energy companies, bankers, associates of the Bush/Cheney families, Israel (the Likud party). The politicians have all the power, all the control over a highly fearful populace; elections faked (2004 at least well documented). Israel in particular just got their oil pipeline from Iraq to Haifa turned back on (off since 1948) and now actually charges the US gov’t for fuel and ships it to our forces in Iraq.

16) Who appeared to have planned it in advance? The signatories of PNAC (google it – I can’t do everything for you!).

17) Curious fact about “President” Bush. Bush did not look surprised at Booker Elementary School when, after the second plane hit the towers, his chief of staff, Andy Card, whispered in his ear that “the country is under attack.” More tellingly, his Secret Service detail did not usher him to safety. Staying put meant that potentially not just Bush but all the children and everyone else at the school were left as potential targets. Bush's whereabouts had been publicized in advance and presumably, if one were attempting to strike at the heart of America, the president would be a likely target. QED: no one thought Bush was a target. And just how would they know that unless they were in on it?

18) Think the Bush administration is too incompetent to pull off 9/11? I challenge you to find one newspaper article from 1941-1945 disclosing the Manhattan Project (the first US Atomic Bomb). Thousands were working on it, farmers’ lands in Tennessee were confiscated for the gaseous diffusion plant near Oak Ridge and other places. Scientists, engineers, technicians, the military and government officials all managed to keep this under wraps and out of the mainstream media until we destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. It is easy to “compartmentalize” the efforts of those working on a large project on a “need to know” basis and keep things secret.

19) Of course Bush was clueless...he’s the ultimate unwitting useful fool — "Angel is next” is the heart of the 911 coup d’etat - one more event in a long black-ops/psy-ops legacy: Central & South American coups and assassinations; Mossadeque coup; Saddam’s installation coup; Kennedy assassination Gulf of Tonkin; USS Liberty; Gladio Strategy of Tension; Iran Contra; WTC’93 bombing; Oklahoma City; USS Cole — the goal: bring the entire globe under secret hegemonic rule of an elite clique of finance oligarchs — the method: hired guns (private security forces and crime families) to do the dirty work, blame it on revolutionaries and scare the citizenry of the so-called free world witlessly into buying the protection on offer with their votes, taxes blood and guts. Protection, oldest game in the book — False Flag Terror, oldest trick in the book. 911 was the most horrifically spectacular false flag operation since Nero burned Rome.


We're now in a 100-year war, according to Cheney and colleagues. Our children are being sacrificed for a lie. Nearly a million Iraqis (and how many Afghanistanis?) dead, more with lives ruined. We have raped these countries. For a lie.

Show "critique" by JamesB

LOL @ you, Mongo.

I've provided the link to the flight manifests & it shows no Arab names what so ever. Could you please provide you're link to the flight manifests that show the names? You keep saying "The hijackers were on the manifests" yet you never provide any proof. I for one would love to see how you penciled in the names in crayon, bet your mom hung it on the fridge.

As far as the BBC 'correcting' their story this is the correction they made --- "The confusion over names and identities we reported back in 2001 may have arisen because these were common Arabic and Islamic names.

In an effort to make this clearer, we have made one small change to the original story. Under the FBI picture of Waleed al Shehri we have added the words "A man called Waleed Al Shehri..." to make it as clear as possible that there was confusion over the identity. The rest of the story remains as it was in the archive as a record of the situation at the time.

We recently asked the FBI for a statement, and this is, as things stand, the closest thing we have to a definitive view: The FBI is confident that it has positively identified the nineteen hijackers responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Also, the 9/11 investigation was thoroughly reviewed by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States and the House and Senate Joint Inquiry. Neither of these reviews ever raised the issue of doubt about the identity of the nineteen hijackers." --- Not the retraction you make it out to be, huh Mongo?

Here's the link, read it for yourself. - I doubt you'll comprehend it, but here it is anyway.

By the way, John O'neill's first day on the job was also his last. Where exactly does your intellectually stunted ignorance fly besides the 'debunker' forums? I won't comment on the rest of your tripe, it speaks for itself.

I'm still waiting for anyone...

that continues to support the OCT to explain the rates at which all three wtc buildings fell (1 and 2 nearly freefall, and 7 at freefall speed) on 9/11, and the physical mechanisms that can cause such a thing in a "damage" and "fire" induced random collapse?

JamesB, please enlighten us.

Physics/Science/Mathematics do not lie, only people do.
9/11 was an INSIDE JOB

#6 Didn't the foremost

#6 Didn't the foremost academic expert on bin Laden (I believe from Duke U. -- can't remember his name) say in an interview that the "confession" tape was definitely NOT bin Laden?

#3 I think you can comfortably say the cameras at the Pentagon numbered in the dozens. There were no videos released, but a few edited frames were which failed to identify the craft as Flight 77.

#4 You might add that it was the only reinforced section and the only one where casualties could be minimized.


James B:

"They didn't ""lose" the money, Rumsfeld was complaining that the IT and accounting systems at the Pentagon were so obsolete that they could not adequately track past expenditures."

And, they LOST THE MONEY YOU DOLT! It's quite clear what he said. This is an admission that the funds can't be tracked by DynCorp and Lockheed Martin, who they pay truckloads of taxpayer money so that the system won't be "obsolete."

You really do dig deep to defend these guys. Evidence of the biggest heist in the history of America just isn't a problem for you.

When are you going to answer my question JB:

As for this "blurb"

I'd lose it. Go back to what others have written where they use citations to sources, accurate language, and throw out weak or unsupportable claims.

thanks for the feedback

I'd use your 70, but I cannot use hyperlinks. It all has to be on paper for distribution. Plus, it cannot be 70 items long. Maybe I need to shorten it to the best 10, air-tight bullets. Footnotes to references so that folks can check themselves is a great idea.

Have you seen or compiled such a list? I don't want to start from scratch if someone's already done a (much) better job.
