High-Ranking Intelligence Officer Updates His Conclusions About 9/11


You may have already heard that 20-year Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer, the second-ranking civilian in U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine services case officer (Robert Steele) stated that "9/11 was at a minimum allowed to happen as a pretext for war", and it was probably an inside job (see Amazon Customer Review dated October 7, 2006).

However, no one has noticed that Mr. Steele posted the following additional comment on February 3, 2007:

1) 9-11 was planned and executed by Bin Laden with direct assistance from elements of the Pakistani government.

2) No fewer than 9, some say 11, governments warned the US at the highest levels. I believe that Dick Cheney saw this as a gift of heaven, and organized the 9-11 exercises so as to have complete operational control of the U.S. government, and he "let it happen."

3) I believe that Larry Silverstein, new owner of the World Trade Center, NOT the U.S. Government, was briefed on this by the Mossad, and saw an opportunity to solve his asbestos problem at taxpayer expense. I believe that Larry Silverstein, in partnership with the security firm managed by a Bush family member, installed the controlled demolitions and "pulled" all three buildings, murdering the people in them, in order to clear the area for rebuilding and get the $7 billion in insurance money. I believe that ... the insurance company executives are in cahoots with Silversten and got major kick-backs, because there is no way a serious insurance company investigation could have ignored the evidence of thermite being briefed to the Senate this very week.

4) Finally, I do think there is evidence of CIA and FBI blundering about and aiding "assets" who participated in the first World Trade Center car bombing, but it is very important to distinguish between bureaucratic incompetence; Dick Cheney's deliberate decision to let it happen; and Larry Silverstein's alleged dmurder of all those people including firefighters.

This has NOT been properly investigated, and it needs to be.

I am not yet sure which of Mr. Steele's new conclusions I agree or disagree with; but, for the sake of completeness, I have posted his update.

Ok, so let me get this straight...

Cheney was planning those war game scenarios "making it happen", then he "let the attacks happen"?
Cheney gave the MIHOP order to that young man to LIHOP?

"Let it happen" and "make it happen" is a false dichotomy--it is not an either/or choice. The attacks were both made and allowed to happen, not one or the other.

Disinformation and the Misleading and False LIHOP/MIHOP Dichotomy
Arabesque: 911 Truth


Steele's first comment reveals his complete ignorance, or purposeful obfuscation, of the reality, which is quite simply that the idea that the Caveman and his 19 box-cutter-carrying hitmen, aided or not by Pakistani intelligence, could have penetrated the strongest air defense system in the history of the universe and struck three times (excluding PA) at the heart of the financial and defense capitals of the empire is PREPOSTEROUS.

It has always been and remains my contention that the best and only evidence we need that 9/11 was an inside job is that it happened at all. It could not have happened unless the U.S. government, including the Administration, the military, and the intelligence agencies did it themselves. This doesn't mean everybody in those organizations knew, but that the people running them and with the power to make things happen--or not--not only knew but were the perpetrators). This is so transparently obvious that anyone like Steele who can still say the Caveman and ISI did it must either be (inconceivably) stupid or (much more likely) playing the false lead game. (Give a little, take a little, just them moving in as many different directions as possible.)

LIHOP is an acceptable way for some squeamish people to

ease into 9/11 truth. I don't think you need to make such a big deal about it.

Moreover, anyone who delves into LIHOP will likely come to believe MIHOP after several days or weeks.

Just One Step is a Giant Leap

"Moreover, anyone who delves into LIHOP will likely come to believe MIHOP after several days or weeks."

I wonder how many readers of Philip Shenon's "the Commission: A Heavily Censored Partial History of the 9/11 Cover Up"
are content with his conclusions (incompetence) or will go on to look deeper.

Let It Happen On Purpose is vastly different from Incompetence

LIHOP is still high treason & a host of other very serious crimes. Also, when a person opens his/her mind to LIHOP, & then looks at WTC-7 or the Pentagon, I think they'll see it was "Made It Happen On Purpose."

Incompetence, on the other hand, is an excuse that basically lets our entire government off the hook.

RE: 9-11 was planned and executed by Bin Laden, Pakistan
