Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

Thanks for the video.

Jon, Thanks for posting the video. It makes it easier to respond to the dreaded "conspiracy theorist" label knowing how common the word "conspiracy" is and how often they take place; and how often they are referred to in our legal system.

BIG conspiracies happen... like, for example... D-DAY!!!

1.5 million soldiers, sailors and airmen participated in D-Day. Great Britain was crawling with Nazi spies. Germany never figured out the invasion target was Normandy. One of Germany most legendary generals, Rommel commander of the Atlantic Wall, was so sure the Invasion of Europe wasn't imminant, he left his HQ and was about 40 miles behind the lines visiting his wife when the invasion began.

"Secrecy was absolutely crucial. To mislead the Germans, the British devised ingenious deception plans, notably Operation Fortitude. They deliberately transmitted and broadcast all the radio traffic generated by US forces in south-west England, and British and Canadian forces in south central England, from radio stations in Kent. Vast, fake army camps appeared around Maidstone and Canterbury, with thousands of partly concealed dummy tanks and aircraft.

One of the Allies' most flamboyant generals, George Patton, toured the area. German agents 'turned' by MI5 leaked the news that the Allies' most powerful assault formation, US 3rd Army, was destined to assault the Pas de Calais.

The deception worked. The Germans concentrated their most powerful formation, 15th Army, in the Pas de Calais. Normandy was held by the smaller, but still formidable 7th Army. Had 15th Army had turned up on D-Day, the landings would probably have ended in disaster...."

Righteous Deception
The Overlord deception planners realised that it would be impossible to keep such an operation secret. It was simply too big an undertaking to hide – there were too many troops, too many supply vehicles, too many ships, too much of everything that would be required for the great Invasion. Anyone in southern England could see evidence of the preparations for themselves. A British writer recalls that ‘the skies were seldom silent, and the once empty roads of Kent, Surrey, Hampshire, Dorset and Devon were crowded with seemingly endless convoys of lorries, tanks and bulldozers, all headed south or west towards the invasion ports.’

Because it was impossible to hide the Overlord build-up, senior British and American intelligence officers decided to take the opposite approach – give the enemy something easy to find, something that would satisfy his curiosity and also mislead them concerning the date and destination of Overlord. To convince German Intelligence that the main landings would take place at Calais, Allied planners let them find an army in southeast England, just across the Straits of Dover from Calais. And so, intelligence planners invented a deception operation code-named ‘Quicksilver,’ which was designed to mislead German Intelligence into believing that Calais was the destination for Overlord. The main component of Quicksilver was the First U.S. Army Group, FUSAG, a mainly fictitious concentration of troops stationed in Kent and Sussex.

FUSAG was, in the words of a former U.S. Army officer who was stationed in London in 1944, ‘so devious that only the British could have thought it up.’ (This retired officer married a British girl and stayed married to her for 50 years, which may account for his point of view.) In order to trick the Germans into thinking that a main force was billeted just opposite Calais, an elaborate deception scheme was set in place in the quiet green fields of southeastern England. Entire camps were built, but nobody lived in them – tent cities made up of empty tents. Radio operators reported the movements of troops that did not exist; the ‘troops’ consisted of two radiomen, one receiving and one sending, describing what non-existent units were doing, or were planning to do.

Armoured units attached to FUSAG had tanks and vehicles that were made of inflatable rubber. One of these dummy Sherman tanks could be picked up and moved by two men, but looked realistic even at close quarters. The squeaking noises of tank tracks had been previously recorded, and were played back on loudspeakers –which listeners in France picked up and believed to be tanks on the move.

The finishing touch for the FUSAG deception was the appointment of General George S. Patton as its commander. Both German Intelligence and OKW were of the opinion that Patton would be one of Overlord’s main commanders – if not the principal Allied field commander, then surely as leader of the first assault. ‘The Germans had long feared Patton as the most able battlefield commander on the Allied side,’ according to one biographer, ‘and the most likely candidate to command the invasion force.’ Because of his brilliance in North Africa and Sicily, Patton was admired as well as feared by many German officers – he might be called the American Rommel, only with more flamboyance and a great deal less discretion...."

"...Thirty nine divisions were slated to participate in Operation OVERLORD, the invasion: 20 American, 14 British, 3 Canadian, 1 French, and 1 Polish, along with hundreds of thousands of service troops. The number of U.S. fighting men based in Great Britain rose from 774,000 at the beginning of 1944 to 1,537,000 in the week preceding the D-Day assault. Included in the logistical maze were more than 16 million tons to feed and supply those men, 137,000 jeeps, trucks, and half-tracks, 4,217 tanks and tracked vehicles, 3,500 artillery pieces, 12,000 aircraft, and huge quantities of everything else needed to sustain the armies....At first light on 6 June 1944, a massive invasion armada stood off the Normandy coast. Nine battleships, 23 cruisers, 104 destroyers, and 71 large landing craft of various descriptions were joined by troop transports, mine sweepers, and merchantmen. The total was nearly 5,000 ships of every type, the largest fleet ever assembled. At 0530, the entire horizon off Normandy between Caen and Vierville-sur-Mer was filled with ships. The naval bombardment began at 0550, detonating large German mine fields and destroying many blockhouses and artillery positions. The Allied bombardment ended precisely on schedule...."


Nice Work Jon! Would be good to include some actual laws on conspiracy. Many or most people in prison have conspiracy on their charges.
