David Addington Thought WTC Towers Were "Charged"

David Addington is Cheney's chief of staff (since Scooter Libby's fall), and the chief legal architect of most of the unlawful things that this administration has done. Addington has been the chief lawyer promoting Bush and Cheney's unlawful war on terror, and was once described by U.S. News and World Report as "the most powerful man you've never heard of".

As the New Yorker puts it, in an article subtitled "The legal mind behind the White House’s war on terror":

Addington "has played a central role in shaping the Administration’s legal strategy for the war on terror. Known as the New Paradigm, this strategy rests on a reading of the Constitution that few legal scholars share—namely, that the President, as Commander-in-Chief, has the authority to disregard virtually all previously known legal boundaries, if national security demands it. Under this framework, statutes prohibiting torture, secret detention, and warrantless surveillance have been set aside."

For example, Addington wrote a memo on January 25, 2002 describing as “quaint” and “obsolete” a number of provisions of the Geneva Conventions relating to prisoners of war. The memo also concluded that there was a “reasonable basis in law” that Bush could avoid any future criminal prosecution for violating the U.S. War Crimes Act of 1996.

So it is interesting to note that Addington thought the Towers were "charged", i.e., that they were demolished with explosive charges, at least initially.

So if anyone says that no credible people thought that the WTC was brought down with controlled charges, you can tell them that one of the chief architects of the war on terror thought so.

I don't think Addington is credible; but alot of neocons do.

The link to the "charged" statement...

... does not work...

Works here



I fixed the link.

The link to the "charged" statement

works perfectly on my machine.

I think he is the one deeply

I think he is the one deeply connected to the torture memo. Bad karma.

We wanted transparency...right??

I don't think it was transparent bullshit we wanted, though!!

How amusing that these pricks think they are on top of the world, and can keep playing the world for fools! I loved the emotional moment that Sick Dick shared with Sleeza...who writes this crap?!?

Don't know what role Cheney played on 9/11, but no one can convince me he didn't have something to do with it considering the concerted effort to cover-up the details about what he did that day.

Who asked Tom Daschle to "limit the scope" of the Congressional Inquiry? Who fought against the family members for the creation of a so-called "Independent" Commission? Who appointed an insider to head that Commission? Who withheld information pertaining to that Commission's investigation? Who underfunded that Commission? Who limited the time for the Commission to do its' job? Who vetted each and every chapter of that Commission's report? Who refused to testify publicly, and under oath?

Was it Pakistan?

Was it Israel?

Was it Britain?

Was it Turkey?

Was it Saudi Arabia?

Was it Iran?

Was it Iraq?

just as long as we dont STOP

just as long as we dont STOP at the White House. Cheney is pure evil and 9/11 couldnt have happened without him but i want ALL the guilty to "hang" so to speak. Cheney and Bush are guilty to some degree but lets hope they dont take the fall for 9/11 all alone. that would leave the whole corrupt system in place and give the illusion that justice was fully served. and thats a very real possibility considering how weak our media is at this point. the media will be looking for a fall guy when the shit really hits the fan, because lets be honest, if ALL the guilty connected to the crime and cover-up of 9/11 were brought to justice that would include most of them for their endless lies and propaganda on behalf of the official lie.

For some reason...

People think when I say "the quickest path to 9/11 truth is right through the White House" I don't want to hold everyone else responsible, accountable, and that is simply not true. If I were to draw a picture, the White House would be in the center, and there would be lines drawn outward, connecting to things like the CIA, the Corporations, the PNAC, Pakistan, Israel, and so on and so forth.

Their Conspiracy Scheme

Hub. Spoke. Wheel.



"Commonly called a "hub and wheel," or a "spoke and wheel" conspiracy. It is the most intricate, and the most difficult for a prosecutor to prove. It requires a minimum of people in the hub with actual knowledge of the overall plan, as long as the hub has diverse influence over the various spokes. This is the type of conspiracy that is most common in corporate crimes, such as anti-trust, free trade infringements, and SEC violations."

"For a clear picture of this, imagine a wagon wheel. The hub, the portion attached to the axle, is an individual or group who devises the overall plan, represented by the rim of the wheel, the portion that meets the ground. In between, and reaching out in all directions, are the spokes. The spokes are essentially the tools, used by the hub, to transport the hub's intentions to the business end, the rim. The hub and wheel conspiracy can be as simple as a wagon wheel, or it can be as complex as the wire mesh of spokes on a Jaguar XKE where, sometimes, even the spokes seem to have spokes. But the principle is the same. Few, if any, of the spokes need act in an unlawful manner, and few, if any, need to have any knowledge of the intentions of the hub. Similar to the chain and link conspiracy, the spokes are only vicariously criminally liable for the actions of the other spokes or the hub, if they have knowledge of the criminal activity of those entities, and the final business of the rim."

"At any rate, the key for any effective hub is to recognize the self-interest of his spokes, to manipulate them accordingly, and to allow each spoke only the knowledge that it needs to further those interests..."

"Following this reasoning, entire corporate conglomerates can be set in motion as spokes if they can be convinced that their corporate interests are best served by giving support to the hub, whether or not they fully appreciate precisely what they are ultimately supporting. In this manner a "Fourth Estate," that is primarily owned by a few megacorporations, can relatively quickly be transformed into the officially sanctioned propaganda engine of one who wishes to become a dictator. If you doubt this, I suggest that you examine the history of Adolph Hitler's relationship with the German press as that country was transformed from a republic, that aspired to democratically achieve justice for all of its citizens to the most oppressive dictatorship the world has ever known, ultimately murdering millions of Europeans."
