Bush - "That is one Terrible Pilot"

George W. Bush: "I saw an airplane hit the Tower... and I thought that"s one terrible pilot..."
http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=dbc_1188804768

Why would he claim he saw the first plane hit before stepping into the classroom? And really.......a Commercial Airliner hits the WTC and the President thinks..."that's one terrible pilot"? Really? I guess he thought the Commercial Airliner Co- pilot must have been even worse, or asleep, you'd think the co-pilot would at least ask, "uh...any reason why we are flying hundreds of miles off course into a major city, Captain?"

He's just making up a story. Why? Why doesn't he just tell the truth? The truth is...his National Security Adviser called him and informed him that a Commercial Airliner had just flown into the WTC. You see before President Bush stepped into the classroom, he already knew that a Commercial Airliner had flown into the WTC, and this is his weird way of admitting it. It's true, while we were all wondering what hit the WTC, (the news still didn't know what it was that hit the skyscraper)the President was already aware that it was a Commercial Airliner. And he knew because Condeleeza Rice his National Security Adviser had told him. There is no way around this fact.

Emma E. Booker Elementary School principal Gwen Tose'-Rigell explains.......

"Tose'-Rigell, 50, says she first knew something was amiss when Bush emerged from his car and was whisked into a special holding room to take a telephone call. Then she was summoned to the room to talk to the president."

"He said a commercial plane has hit the World Trade Center, and we're going to go ahead and go on, we're going on to do the reading thing anyway," Tose'-Rigell recalls. "At that point my summation was they wanted him to know about this because it was important, but it couldn't be anything huge."

Now Rice doesn't want to just come out and say yes, she knew it was a Commercial Airliner and told Bush and then they both went gosh that's weird huh...oh well...so she kind of muddies it up a bit, but if she denies it she will be caught red handed in a lie......here's how she explains it.....

Oct 24, interview with Bob Woodward:

"And my executive assistant, Tony Crawford, came in and he said, a plane crashed into the World Trade Center."

"I said, Mr. President, a plane crashed into the World Trade Center. And he said, that's a strange accident. I said, I'll let you know if I know anything more. And right about then Tony said, they think it was a commercial plane. And I said, they think it was a commercial plane. And that's all I knew."

"So I went downstairs and I_started my staff meeting."

Nov 2001:
"DR. RICE: That's right. My staff meeting, senior directors of the NSC staff. I had heard before I left here that the first plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. And I thought to myself: what an odd accident. And had called the President to tell him about it. And he said, what kind of plane? And they said, well, they said it's twin engine, and then a few minutes later they said, no, it's a commercial plane. And I said, that's all we know right now, Mr. President."

INTERVIEW OF NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR CONDOLEEZZA RICE
BY TERRY MORAN OF ABC

"I was standing at the desk getting ready to go to my senior staff meeting, and my executive assistant came in and said a plane had hit the World Trade Center. And I thought, well, that's a terrible accident. And in my own mind it was probably a twin-engine plane of some kind."

"And I called the President in Florida and told him, and he had exactly the same response. So I told my executive assistant, well, let me know what happens. And I went downstairs to start my senior staff meeting. And a few minutes in, I got a note that said that a second plane had hit the World Trade Center, and I thought, well, this is a terrorist attack."
http://www.scribd.com/doc/16571537/T3-B11-EOP-Produced-Documents-Vol-III-Fdr-8602-Terry-MoranABC-Interview-of-Rice-003

In 2007 a book on her was released that said this....

"Condi's executive assistant approached her and told her that a jet airliner had crashed into one of the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. Condi's first impression was that it was an accident, and she asked the reporting aide to keep her posted on how many casualties there were and any other relative information. She then called the President who was in Florida. After that she went to a staff meeting. In the middle of the meeting, Condi's executive assistant approached her again with a note that said that a second plane had hit the World Trade Center. That's when she knew it was a terrorist attack." page 472
http://books.google.com/books?id=HrteNHwTnPwC&pg=RA2-PA472&lpg=RA2-PA472&dq=%22condoleezza+rice%22+%22executive+assistant%...

In 2008 she said this.....

"I got the first call standing by my desk getting ready to go to an educational event. When the first plane hit the World Trade Center, my assistant came in and said a plane has hit the World Trade Center, and I said what a strange accident. At first I thought it might even have been a small plane, but then he said, "no, it's a commercial plane." The president called, and I said a plane's hit the World Trade Center, and he said that's a very strange accident. He asked me to keep him informed."
http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1518,587744,00.html

That last one is particularly interesting because she has things opposite of what they were. For instance "getting ready to go to an educational event"...no she was going to a meeting, it was the President that was going to the educational event, and "The president called, and I said a plane's hit the World Trade Center", no it was she that called the President.
In Summary....

2001...
"And had called the President to tell him about it. And he said, what kind of plane? And they said, well, they said it's twin engine, and then a few minutes later they said, no, it's a commercial plane."

2002...
"And in my own mind it was probably a twin-engine plane of some kind."

2008....
At first I thought it might even have been a small plane, but then he said, "no, it's a commercial plane."
http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1518,587744,00.html

Don't be misled, Bush was informed by Rice that it was a Commercial Airliner that had just flown into the WTC.......

"He said a commercial plane has hit the World Trade Center, and we're going to go ahead and go on, we're going on to do the reading thing anyway," Tose'-Rigell recalls."
http://s3.amazonaws.com/911timeline/2002/ap081902d.html

Now this begs the question...How could they have known it was a Commercial Airliner that hit the WTC? The news wasn't reporting that. The news was speculating up until the second plane hit. How could they know? In order to answer this we need to trace this information backwards. Bush knew because Rice told him. And how did Rice know?....

"...my executive assistant came in and said a plane had hit the World Trade Center. And I thought, well, that's a terrible accident.....And I called the President in Florida and told him, and he had exactly the same response. So I told my executive assistant, well, let me know what happens."

In any case, if the FAA and the military knew that a hijacking had taken place obviously this information would make it's way up the chain of command and here is a timeline provided by the 9/11 Commission....

8:19 Flight attendant notifies AA of hijacking
8:25 Boston Center aware of hijacking
8:38 Boston Center notifies NEADS of hijacking
8:46 NEADS scrambles Otis fighter jets in search of AA 11
8:46:40 AA 11 crashes into 1 WTC (North Tower)
http://www.9-11commission.gov/report/911Report_Ch1.htm

8:55: Before entering the classroom, the President speaks to National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, who is at the White House. She first tells him it was a twin-engine aircraft—and then a commercial aircraft—that had struck the World Trade Center, adding “that’s all we know right now, Mr. President.”
http://www.gpoaccess.gov/911/pdf/fullreport.pdf

Are we really supposed to believe that no one notified Rice of any hijackings? That is the claim you see....

"I got a note that said that a second plane had hit the World Trade Center, and I thought, well, this is a terrorist attack."
http://www.scribd.com/doc/16571537/T3-B11-EOP-Produced-Documents-Vol-III-Fdr-8602-Terry-MoranABC-Interview-of-Rice-003

The FAA and the military are both aware of hijackings taking place before any plane hits any building and when this information has reached Rice it turns into a weird accident. This is not believable. But what is even less believable are the actions of the person in charge of the military and who has the authority to issue shoot down orders, Donald Rumsfeld. He is unaware of any hijackings until a plane hits the pentagon. In fact, it was this incident that he himself claims is what got him out of his office, but he stays locked in his office with a CIA briefer even though he is aware both WTC buildings have been hit by commercial airliners. There is no excuse for this. Unless of course, these attacks are "supposed" to happen.....

"Aubrey Davis of the Pentagon police was standing outside Donald Rumsfeld's office on the third floor of the Pentagon's E ring. Inside, Rumsfeld, though aware that the World Trade Center towers in New York had already been hit, was proceeding with his regularly scheduled CIA briefing. Davis, on the other hand, had concluded from watching TV news that the country was under attack and the pentagon might be a target." Page 1

Rumsfeld finally left his office to find out what the heck was all that racket?

"King: It was a jarring thing. And you ran toward the smoke?
Rumsfeld: Uh huh.
King: Because?
Rumsfeld: Goodness. Who knows? I wanted to see what had happened."
http://www.defenselink.mil/transcripts/transcript.aspx?transcriptid=2603

"Upon my return from the crash site and before going to the Executive Support Center (ESC), I had one or more calls in my office, one of which I believe was with the President."
http://www.9-11commission.gov/hearings/hearing8/rumsfeld_statement.pdf

"Rumsfeld was back in the building by ten o'clock, but despite the anxious pleas from the military, he did not go to the command center. Instead, he headed for his office, where he spoke to President Bush, though afterward neither man could recall what they discussed." page 5

"Rumsfeld, once he had finally settled into his place at the command center, got to work on the "Rules of engagement" for the fighter pilots. This was an irrelevant exercise for he did not complete and issue them until 1:00 p.m. hours after the last hijacker had died." page 7

But hey.....it was a surprise attack. That was an easy sell, because yes, it was a big shock and surprise to the general public who never heard of Bin Laden or Al Qaeda, so that was an easy sell. But history will continue to expose all these lies.....

Before 9/11, President Bush issued Presidential Directive 5 which calls for a comprehensive review of U.S. intelligence.

"National Security Presidential Directives - NSPDs
NSPD-5: Review of U.S. Intelligence
On May 9, 2001 President Bush issued National Security Presidential Directive 5 which calls for a comprehensive review of U.S. intelligence.

"The review is intended to "ensure that U.S. intelligence capabilities are honed to serve us on a wide range of critical challenges that face us now and in the future."

"The review is to be conducted by two panels named by DCI George Tenet. One panel will be comprised of selected governmental officials. The second panel, to be named by Tenet in conjunction with National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, will be composed of nongovernmental experts."

"The review has "a broad mandate to challenge the status quo and explore new and innovative techniques, systems, practices and processes" for foreign intelligence, according to a White House press statement."

"The panels were to report to the President in summer 2001."
http://www.fas.org/irp/offdocs/nspd/nspd-5.htm

"Published: May 13, 2001
Mr. Tenet, in consultation with the president's national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, will appoint two panels to conduct the review. One will consist of government officials and the other will have experts from outside government."

"The intelligence budget is not public information, but experts say it was probably about $30 billion for the current year, and was expected to increase in the next budget year."
http://www.nytimes.com/2001/05/13/world/13SPY.html?searchpv=site01

"President George W. Bush has ordered a comprehensive review of U.S. intelligence to determine whether the CIA and other intelligence agencies can protect their own secrets."

"In a White House memorandum released Friday, Bush said the review would be conducted by CIA Director George Tenet, working with Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and Secretary of State Colin Powell."

"Because they will be dealing with intelligence matters, the panels will deliberate in secret. They are expected to give a report to Bush this summer."
http://www.chinapost.com.tw/news/2001/05/13/11311/Bush-orders.htm

Then, well after the attacks of 9/11, the Senate and Congress Joint Inquiry into the attacks conducted a review of it's own and what they found was.....

"Finding: During the spring and summer of 2001, the Intelligence Community experienced a significant increase in information indicating that Bin Ladin and al-Qa’ida intended to strike against U.S. interests in the very near future."
http://www.gpoaccess.gov/serialset/creports/pdf/fullreport_errata.pdf

"Finding: Beginning in 1998 and continuing into the summer of 2001, the Intelligence Community received a modest, but relatively steady, stream of intelligence reporting that indicated the possibility of terrorist attacks within the United States."
http://www.gpoaccess.gov/serialset/creports/pdf/fullreport_errata.pdf

"Finding: From at least 1994, and continuing into the summer of 2001, the Intelligence Community received information indicating that terrorists were contemplating, among other means of attack, the use of aircraft as weapons."
http://www.gpoaccess.gov/serialset/creports/pdf/fullreport_errata.pdf

"Community received reporting in May 2001 that Bin Ladin supporters were planning to infiltrate the United States to conduct terrorist operations and, in late summer 2001, that an al-Qa’ida associate was considering mounting terrorist attacks within the United States."
http://www.gpoaccess.gov/serialset/creports/pdf/fullreport_errata.pdf

"The FBI and CIA were also aware that convicted terrorist Abdul Hakim Murad and several others had discussed the possibility of crashing an airplane into CIA Headquarters as part of “the Bojinka Plot” in the Philippines, discussed later in this report."
http://www.gpoaccess.gov/serialset/creports/pdf/fullreport_errata.pdf

"Community received reporting in May 2001 that Bin Ladin supporters were planning to infiltrate the United States to conduct terrorist operations and, in late summer 2001, that an al-Qa’ida associate was considering mounting terrorist attacks within the United States."
http://www.gpoaccess.gov/serialset/creports/pdf/fullreport_errata.pdf

And let's not forget.....

Title of Aug 6 Memo Given to President Bush
"Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S."
http://slate.msn.com/?id=2066154

And what does the National Security Advisor have to say about this?.........

"But most of it was pointing all of it was pointing abroad, that there was going to be some kind of attack abroad."
http://www.scribd.com/doc/16571537/T3-B11-EOP-Produced-Documents-Vol-III-Fdr-8602-Terry-MoranABC-Interview-of-Rice-003

But Lt Col Anthony Shaffer has blown the whistle and exposed that his Able Danger team even identified Atta and 3 of the 4 Al Qaeda cells here in America. And when was the plug on Able Danger pulled? When the Bush Administration came in.......

"GSN:
Okay, after the 2000 presidential elections, the Bush administration comes into power in January of 2001. How, if at all, does that change anything that Able Danger is doing? Do you get new guidance? Do you have a new hope that someone will listen to you? Is there a new round of proposals to get the information out to the FBI? What happens when President Bush takes over?"

Shaffer:
"At one point in time, the then Director of Operations [for the DIA] had me come in and brief him on a series of operations. This was February /March 2001. This general said, “I want you to explain to me every one of your operations in detail.” So, I started going through the laundry list of each operation and describing it to him."

"From moment one, it was a bad conversation. It was like, “Well, I don’t agree. Well, I don’t agree. Well, I don’t agree.” So, he basically was saying all the operational focus that I had been required to focus on by the previous leadership, by Colonel Harding, was not something he wanted to pursue. No matter how much common sense, no matter how much reason I tried to use with him, it seemed to be an emotional issue with him."

"GSN:
How do you explain his objections to your various activities?"

"SHAFFER:
I can only speak to the facts. His opinion was, “That’s not part of your job.” As he walked through things, he kept saying, “I don’t see this as your job. This should be done by someone else.”

"I tried to explain to him how that’s not their job. We’re human intelligence. This is just an aspect of human intelligence. He disagreed with me. It came to the point where we brought up Able Danger, where I was explaining the operation to him -- as you know it now, plus more -- and he looked at me and he said “Well, Tony, that’s not your job.”

"I said, “Well, sir, with all due respect, this is an important operation focused on the global Al Qaeda target,” and he said, “You’re not hearing me, Tony. This is not your job.”

“Well, sir, this is basically using human methodology, combined with data mining to…”

“Tony, you’re not listening to me. This is not your job.”

“Sir, this is important, I think…”

“Tony, I’m the two star here. I’m the two star. I’m telling you I don’t want you doing anything with Able Danger.”

“Sir, if not us then who?”

“I don’t know, but it’s not your job.”

"And that effectively ended my direct support and my unit’s support to Able Danger."

"GSN:
Did it end Able Danger altogether?"

"SHAFFER:
I think it contributed to the failure of it because by that point, Army had already pulled out and Special Operations Command, because of the political change there, had also changed their focus. I remember the last conversation I had with Captain Scott Philpott on this was a desperate call from him asking me to try to help use one of my operational facilities to at least try to exploit the information [Able Danger had collected] before it got lost."

"GSN:
What was the name of the general who said “No, this is not your job.”

SHAFFER:
General Rod Isler.
http://web.archive.org/web/20070626165006/http://www.gsnmagazine.com/sep_05/shaffer_interview.html

"....neither Isler or his commanding officer, Thomas R. Wilson, had much trouble finding jobs immediately after they each retired from thirty plus years of service in the summer of 2002."

"Think some internal investigations into the failures of 9/11 might have had anything to do with it?"

"Rod Isler was hired in 2002 by the defense contractor General Dynamics (where Rumsfeld was once the CEO). Isler works in the "Advanced Information Systems" business unit, of all things. Before taking over as Deputy Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 1999, Isler served as "Associate Director of Central Intelligence for Military Support, Central Intelligence Agency, Washington, D.C." Which I think helps explain the "It's not your job" remarks, not to mention why George Tenet keeps thanking him in speeches a year after Isler had retired."

"Thomas Wilson .... - was hired as a corporate officer by the defense contractor ATK after his own retirement in the summer of 2002. ATK specializes in precision guided weapons, aerospace warfare, and ballistic missile defense. Wouldn't you know that when Wilson retired as DIA director, George Tenet of the CIA "presented Wilson the U.S. Intelligence community's highest commendation, the National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal." Prior to becoming the director of the DIA, Wilson had previously served as "Associate Director of Central Intelligence for Military Support" - in other words approximately the same background and connection to George Tenet that Rod Isler had."

It seems the evidence is mounting that the CIA didn't want Able Danger or the FBI to get involved in a surveillance operation involving these hijackers.....

"HAMBURG, Germany _ Nearly two years before the Sept. 11 hijackings, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency began persistent efforts to recruit as an informer a Syrian-born Hamburg businessman with links to al-Qaida and the key hijackers, the Chicago Tribune has learned."

"The CIA's attempts to enlist Mamoun Darkazanli were initiated in late 1999, at a time when three of the four Hamburg students who would later pilot the hijacked planes were first learning of the hijacking plot at an al-Qaida training camp in Afghanistan."

"Darkazanli, 44, has acknowledged knowing the three pilots, Mohamed Atta, Marwan Al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah, with whom he attended the same radical Hamburg mosque, Al Quds, and shared several common friends in this city's sizable but insular Muslim community. ...the CIA was seeking to turn Darkazanli into a spy during the time the initial hijacking plans were being laid represents the earliest and deepest set of U.S. intelligence footprints outside the hijackers' window."

"In December 1999 the CIA representative in Hamburg, posing as an American diplomat attached to the U.S. Consulate, appeared at the headquarters of the Hamburg state domestic intelligence agency, the LFV, that is responsible for tracking terrorists and domestic extremists."

"According to a source with firsthand knowledge of the events, the CIA representative told his local counterparts that his agency believed Darkazanli had knowledge of an unspecified terrorist plot and could be "turned" against his al-Qaida comrades."

"He said, 'Darkazanli knows a lot,' " the source recalled."
http://www.accessmylibrary.com/coms2/summary_0286-8937523_ITM

"In March 1999, German intelligence officials gave the Central Intelligence Agency the first name and telephone number of Marwan al-Shehhi, and asked the Americans to track him."

"After the Germans passed the information on to the C.I.A., they did not hear from the Americans about the matter until after Sept. 11, a senior German intelligence official said."

"The Germans considered the information on Mr. Shehhi particularly valuable, and the commission is keenly interested in why it apparently did not lead to greater scrutiny of him."

"The independent commission investigating the attacks has received information on the 1999 Shehhi tip, and is actively investigating the issue, said Philip Zelikow, executive director of the commission."

"Close surveillance of Mr. Shehhi in 1999 might have led investigators to other plot leaders, including Mohammed Atta, who was Mr. Shehhi's roommate."

"The Hamburg cell is very important" to the investigation of the Sept. 11 attacks, Mr. Zelikow said. The intelligence on Mr. Shehhi "is an issue that's obviously of importance to us, and we're investigating it," he added."

"Asked whether American intelligence officials gave sufficient attention to the information about Mr. Shehhi, Mr. Zelikow said, "We haven't reached any conclusions."

The embassy bombings of 1998 and the trial of some operatives of that plot led directly to a communications hub of Al Qaeda that was monitored by the NSA and CIA. And living at this communications hub was one of the 9/11 hijackers, Khalid Almihdhar, it's because of this surveillance that the CIA knew of the Malaysia meeting......

"A would-be suicide bomber should have died after a lorry filled with explosives was driven at the gates of the US embassy in Nairobi."

"In all 213 people were killed, but at the last moment Muhammad Rashed Daoud al-Owhali, a 20-year-old Saudi from a wealthy family, jumped out."

"He was arrested in a seedy Nairobi hotel and then interrogated by the FBI. He co-operated and gave a detailed confession. He even provided the FBI with the phone number of an al-Qaeda safe house in Yemen, owned by Ahmed Al-Hada, an Osama bin Laden loyalist."

"THE PHONE LINK"

"Helped by the National Security Agency, the CIA staked out the house and waited."

"The phone was tapped and eavesdropping bugs put in the house while spy satellites photographed every visitor."
http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qn4161/is_20020609/ai_n12841550/?tag=content;col1

"Also living in the house was Hada's daughter, Hoda, along with her husband, Khalid al-Mihdhar."
http://www.denverpost.com/excerpts/ci_10814333

"late December 1999, Mihdhar was at the ops center when he received the phone call he had been waiting for. He and Hazmi were instructed to leave in a few days for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where their final, fatal mission to the U.S. would begin."
http://www.denverpost.com/excerpts/ci_10814333

"Mohamed al-'Owhali provided the telephone number of this safehouse to authorities after he was detained; the number was monitored by the National Security Agency thereafter.
•In 1999, the NSA picked up discussions of the impending meeting in Kuala Lumpur that is believed to have served as a planning vehicle for the Sept. 11 attacks. They also learned "Nawaf" and "Khalid" -- future hijackers Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar -- would be attending."
http://www.globalsecurity.org/security/profiles/ahmed_al-hada.htm

"Once in Kuala Lumpur, the Al Qaeda operatives were photographed -- at the CIA's request -- by Malaysian authorities at a series of meetings."
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/knew/could/

"In March 2000, Mihdhar signed up for WebTV Networks, a service that would let him go online using his television instead of a computer and moniter. His email address was kkhd2002@yahoo.com and Hazmi's was hzi2002@yahoo.com. It was through e-mail that Mihdhar and Hazmi kept in communications with Bin Laden's operations chief Khalid Shaikh in Pakistan."

"By March the NSA had been eavesdropping on their calls for months without passing on their location. They were living in the home of an FBI informant." Page 25-26
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0385521324/centerforcoop-20#

"The CIA admits that it did not inform the bureau that after the Malaysia meetings ended, it tracked Almidhar and Alhazmi to Los Angeles. The CIA further admits that it failed to warn the INS or the State Department, and as a result, the men's names were not added to a terrorist watch list."

The DCI told the Joint Inquiry:
"We had at that point the level of detail needed to watchlist Al-Mihdhar – that is, to nominate him to State Department for refusal of entry into the US or to deny him another visa. Our officers remained focused on the surveillance operation and did not do so." page 197/858

Now some might consider that a screw up, but it's not. And BTW, the Bush Administration knew that Saddam had no WMD, but that is not the subject of this article. An Intelligence failure that cost the lives of thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of others, leading to several wars and costings billions if not trillions of dollars was not a mistake. How do I know this? Because in the real world you get punished for massive catrostaphic failures. Medals are earned for a job well done.

"WASHINGTON — President Bush on Tuesday awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to former CIA Director George Tenet."

"The medal is the highest civilian award and recognizes exceptional meritorious service."

"Bush credited him as "one of the first to recognize and address the threat to America from radical networks." He said that after Sept. 11, Tenet was "ready with a plan to strike back at Al Qaeda and to topple the Taliban."

"Asked on Tuesday whether Tenet's receipt of the medal signifies that Bush doesn't hold the former CIA director responsible for the flawed WMD intelligence, White House spokesman Scott McClellan responded: "This is a day to honor these individuals, and that's where we intend to keep our focus."

Why would the U.S. Government want a horrible attack to occur? So it can go to war. Anyone who still believes the Government would not attack itself in order to justify wars against it's perceived enemies hasn't read operation Northwoods.

"Operation Northwoods, or Northwoods, was a false-flag plan, proposed within the United States government in 1962. The plan called for CIA or other operatives to commit apparent acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Castro-led Cuba."

Did the U.S. Government want an excuse to go to war before 9/11? Yes.

Niaz Naik, a high ranking Pakistani Government Official has told of meetings he had with American diplomats where according to him they warned of a coming invasion. He's the guy that told of the famous "carpet of bombs" statement.....

"Tuesday, 18 September, 2001,
Niaz Naik, a former Pakistani Foreign Secretary, was told by senior American officials in mid-July that military action against Afghanistan would go ahead by the middle of October."

"He said that he was in no doubt that after the World Trade Center bombings this pre-existing US plan had been built upon and would be implemented within two or three weeks."
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/1550366.stm

The famous "carpet of bombs" statement...

"In Naik's early telling, Tom Simons -- a U.S. delegate at the meetings and former ambassador to Pakistan -- issued a noteworthy ultimatum: "Either you accept our offer of a carpet of gold, or we bury you under a carpet of bombs."

"Naik confirmed what the authors had been told by legendary FBI anti-terror czar John O'Neill before he died Sept. 11 -- that oil interests had hampered the investigation into Osama bin Laden's terror network,"

"Today Naik offers a few more specifics. He says that the discussion in question occurred on July 21; that the talk first occurred in the general meetings, but then continued after the group took a break, when Simons issued the "carpet of bombs" threat. He also argues that the discussion went on long enough to discuss not just the place where the attack would come from, but also the time."

"We asked them, when do you think you will attack Afghanistan?" Naik says, looking back. "And they said, before the snow falls in Kabul. That means September, October, something like that."
http://dir.salon.com/story/news/feature/2002/08/15/forbidden_truth/index2.html

Confirmed by MSNBC......

"WASHINGTON, May 16, 2002 - President Bush was expected to sign detailed plans for a worldwide war against al-Qaida two days before Sept. 11 but did not have the chance before the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, U.S. and foreign sources told NBC News."

Naik wont be talking anymore.......

Niaz A Naik ‘tortured to death’

"ISLAMABAD: Former foreign secretary Niaz A Naik was found dead in mysterious circumstances at his residence in Sector F-7/3 on Saturday, police said. He was 82."

"Naik’s body was shifted to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) where its autopsy was conducted."

"The spokesman of the PIMS did not rule out the strong possibility of murder, saying that the preliminary medico-legal report strengthened the doubts of homicide after torture."

"In answer to a question from an eight-year-old in Florida, he said his first thought was: "There's one terrible pilot."
http://www.prisonplanet.com/bush_reveals_first_thought.html

Sure, Mr. Bush, that might work for an eight year old.

as much as a porcupine resembles a jellyfish

It was a clear day. Not only did the plane have a pilot, but it had a co-pilot, a bunch of stewards and/or stewardesses, and probably dozens of passengers who were business flyers familiar with the route.

Any one of these people would have mentioned to the pilot that lower Manhattan resembles Newark or LaGuardia airport as much as a porcupine resembles a jellyfish. (I made that one up).

So the "I thought it was a terrible pilot" story is beyond absurd.

The question is why does the American public believe it?

The answer is to be found in psychology - and so I ask once again:

"WHERE ARE THE PSYCHOLOGISTS FOR 9/11 TRUTH?"

Well???????? Where are you????

Hello ????????

Calling all psychologists.

Come in please.

I saw that president

and I thought, 'That's one terrible liar.'

And it wouldn't be the last time!

Excellent piece of research, thank you.

oh, what a strange accident - must have been a bad pilot...?

like DUH!!! That is utterly absurd, on both Bush's and Rice's part, and shows they even had their story their script all lined up in advance about what to say in response to the question about their initial reaction to the information.

Also, they both parroted almost exactly the same line about no one in the government imagining using planes as missiles, although Bush qualified his remard by adding "on such a massive scale".

They were actively complicit in an act of MASS MURDER, and their behavior and statements betrays them as having a contrived storyline and therefore a guilty conscience.

Surely future generations, looking back on it all, will remember the whole lot of them as absolute monsters, and the MSM as a government controlled propogranda wing.

What a disgrace! What an OUTRAGE!!!

And if you're not pissed off about it, then you're not paying attention.

No one could have imagined?

Robert Rice said..."Also, they both parroted almost exactly the same line about no one in the government imagining using planes as missiles, although Bush qualified his remard by adding "on such a massive scale".

Exactly! This plan was originally Ramzi Yousef's demented idea (KSM nephew) And the CIA knew of it from the very beggining when they nabbed Yousef and his partner Abdul Murad in 1995.
They were captured in the Phillipines, and while Bush and Rice were saying "no one could have imagined" the arresting officer in the Phillipines were telling a different story.....

"But, Philippine and U.S intelligence officials said, the Bojinka operation called for a second, perhaps even more ambitious phase, as interrogators discovered when they pressed Murad about his pilot's licence. All those years in flight school, he confessed, had been in preparation for a suicide mission. He was to buy, rent, or steal a small plane, fill it with explosives and crash it into CIA headquarters, while others would fly planes into other targets. He mentioned the other targets being the White House, the Pentagon and some skyscrapers. The only problem, Murad complained, was that they needed trained pilots to carry out the plot."

"The person in charge of the Philippine police who foiled the plot Aida Fariscal, had this to say about the events of 9/11 and what she had discovered more than 6 years before. "I thought, at first, that I was having a bad dream, or that I was watching a movie." But as the burning towers came crashing down under their own weight, disbelief turned to anger. "I still don't understand," she says, "how it could have been allowed to happen." The footage made Fariscal bolt upright. "Oh my God," she gasped. "Bojinka." "The FBI knew all about Yousef's plans," she says. "They'd seen the files, been inside 603. The CIA had access to everything, too." "This should have never, ever been allowed to happen," she repeats angrily."

"Gen. Avelino "Sonny" Razon, one of the lead investigators in the Bojinka case, was so shocked at what he saw on Sept. 11 that he jumped on a plane in Cebu, where he was now police chief, and flew to Manila to convene a hasty press conference. "We told the Americans about the plans to turn planes into flying bombs as far back as 1995," he complained to reporters."
http://www.prisonplanet.com/bust_and_boom.html

Didn't see that on the news though did we?

And that's not the half of it either

You have to factor in ALL the intelligence briefings, and all the many war games excercises, not only those which were occuring in simultaneity with what actually happened, but also the many excercises in the lead up to 9/11 ALL of which involved the use of hijacked commercial airliner "planes as missiles into buildings", and only then do Condi and George's statements of incredulity reach the absolute pinnacle of absurdity, and stand as stark historical reminders, of their own guilty conscience, and do you remember her reluctance to testify, along with Bush and Cheney's?
- let it NEVER be forgotten ANY of this history, so that all future generations can LEARN something from it!

connected dots

excellent compilation. I was previously unaware of the conflict between Bush and Rice's statements about believing it was a small plane, and the fact, documented in various ways, that they knew it was a commercial airliner- and they couldn't have gotten the info from the news. But the FAA and the military knew, and the Secret Service should've been in the loop. It sounds so canned, seeing these statements together, in context- it was their cover story- after a summer of threat where the NSA and CIA are monitoring a terrorist plot in progress, and the CIA is hiding info from the FBI- all these people in charge of the nation's defense only think 'accident' until the 2nd plane hit- then they all knew it was 'attack'? Suuuuuure. And it was immediately exploited to publicly justify pre-planned wars in geo-strategic regions.

Rumsfeld: Guilty

loose nuke said.."all these people in charge of the nation's defense only think 'accident' until the 2nd plane hit-"

No, it's even worse. The only other person besides the President authorized to give shoot down orders still didn't know it was a terrorist act, even after 2 jet planes crash into both towers! Can you believe he got away with this s**t? Why was he staying in his office with a CIA briefer instead of in the Military Command Center where he was supposed to be?

The 9/11 Commission has to admit this and they act like it's a perfectly normal reaction......

"On the morning of September 11, Secretary Rumsfeld was having breakfast at the Pentagon with a group of members of Congress. He then returned to his office for his daily intelligence briefing. The Secretary was informed of the second strike in New York during the briefing; he resumed the briefing while awaiting more information. After the Pentagon was struck, Secretary Rumsfeld went to the parking lot to assist with rescue efforts."
http://www.9-11commission.gov/report/911Report_Ch1.htm

Don't get me wrong, actually Rumsfeld is a genius, see he was at that breakfast meeting when he found out about the first plane. And he turned out to be a prophet.......

"Rumsfeld was in his office when the aircraft hit on the opposite side of the building. He had just run there after hearing of the Trade Center attack while at a meeting on missile defense in his private dining room."

"U.S. Rep. Christopher Cox, R-Calif., also at the meeting, said Rumsfeld had just predicted that the United States would face another terrorist incident at some point."

"He said, 'Let me tell ya, I've been around the block a few times. There will be another event.' And he repeated it for emphasis," Cox said. "And within minutes of saying that, his words proved tragically prophetic."

The key to successful truth actions lies in not insulting your target audience or promoting speculation as hard fact.

"The Reading Thing"

was more important than finding out if we were under attack. First off Dubya said he saw the first plane hit live on the TV. ("a television was obviously on") and he assumed it was pilot error, a "terrible pilot." But he didn't bother to find out? As I understand hijackings were first reported by 8:28 a.m. so he should have been notified by the S.S. that a plane has struck the WTC -AND- that hijackings have been reported before entering the classroom. Even if Bush wasn't inquisitive enough to find out.
Then after the 2nd plane struck and "America is under attack", the S.S. should have gotten Bush out of the classroom even if he wasn't inquisitive enough to do so, because the President might have been a target and the children would have been at risk.

And what's the deal with Arie Fleischer signalling to Bush "Don't say anything yet." It looks like Dick Cheney was in charge that morning via the Secret Service Chain of Command which outranks the DoD during a time of domestic attack, while Fleisher was in charge of the Sarasota classroom.

And Rumsfeld was simultaneously unresponsive just like Bush. The POTUS and the Sec. of Defense both laying low and biding their time.

Chain of command

' the Secret Service Chain of Command...outranks the DoD during a time of domestic attack'

Is this really so? If so, it's important for the American people to understand who's really in charge when the country is under attack. Is this provision re who outranks whom at such times written down anywhere? Was it done by law for by executive order? And when was this change introduced? I say 'change' since this certainly wasn't the way it was when the constitution was adopted, back when the DOD was the 'War Department' and the Secret Service didn't exist yet.

The WTC

and the Pentagon for all we know were professionally rigged to blow into oblivion. Thats A BIG OPERATION.
If I hear another story about 1 guy in the Philippines or in Germany set it all up and Bushco let it happen I'll vomit. This was a made it happen moment. No other way about it. Everything else is smokescreen.
