Dr. Robert M. Bowman, Director of the Original Star Wars Program

Dr. Bob Bowman, a real Patriot and tireless warrior for Truth, died today at his home in Florida. Our condolences go out to "Maggie" his wonderful wife and all of his children.

We will all dearly miss Bob's courageous statements regarding the horrible lies surrounding the events of September 11, 2001. He and his wife drove cross country some years ago to rally support for a New Investigation and when he was here in Marin County I arranged to have him speak on the local Cable TV network, North Bay Reports where he was keenly appreciated. He was here in the Bay Area again about two years ago and hosted a lecture on our terrible "situation." Even while he was battling cancer he continued to fight for the Truth about 9/11.

The upcoming event September 11th at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland, California will be dedicated to Bob.

Patriots Question 9/11

Lt. Col. Robert Bowman, PhD, U.S. Air Force (ret) – Director of Advanced Space Programs Development (STAR WARS) under Presidents Ford and Carter. U.S. Air Force fighter pilot with over 100 combat missions. (PhD in Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering, Cal Tech). Former Head of the Department of Aeronautical Engineering and Assistant Dean at the U.S. Air Force Institute of Technology. 22-year Air Force career. Also taught Mathematics and English at the University of Southern California, the University of Maryland, and Phillips University.

Member: Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth Association Statement:

"Scholars and professionals with various kinds of expertise---including architects, engineers, firefighters, intelligence officers, lawyers, medical professionals, military officers, philosophers, religious leaders, physical scientists, and pilots---have spoken out about radical discrepancies between the official account of the 9/11 attacks and what they, as independent researchers, have learned.

They have established beyond any reasonable doubt that the official account of 9/11 is false and that, therefore, the official “investigations” have really been cover-up operations.

Thus far, however, there has been no response from political leaders in Washington or, for that matter, in other capitals around the world. Our organization, Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth, has been formed to help bring about such a response.

We believe that the truth about 9/11 needs to be exposed now---not in 50 years as a footnote in the history books---so the policies that have been based on the Bush-Cheney administration’s interpretation of the 9/11 attacks can be changed.

We are, therefore, calling for a new, independent investigation of 9/11 that takes account of evidence that has been documented by independent researchers but thus far ignored by governments and the mainstream media."

Video 9/11/04: "A lot of these pieces of information, taken together, prove that the official story, the official conspiracy theory of 9/11 is a bunch of hogwash. It’s impossible. … There’s a second group of facts having to do with the cover up. … Taken together these things prove that high levels of our government don’t want us to know what happened and who’s responsible.…

Who gained from 9/11? Who covered up crucial information about 9/11? And who put out the patently false stories about 9/11 in the first place? When you take those three things together, I think the case is pretty clear that it’s highly placed individuals in the administration with all roads passing through Dick Cheney.

I think the very kindest thing that we can say about George W. Bush and all the people in the U.S. Government that have been involved in this massive cover-up, the very kindest thing we can say is that they were aware of impending attacks and let them happen. Now some people will say that’s much too kind, however even that is high treason and conspiracy to commit murder." http://video.go

Signatory: Petition requesting a reinvestigation of 9/11:
"We want truthful answers to question. … As Americans of conscience, we ask for four things:
An immediate investigation by New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer
Immediate investigation in Congressional Hearings.
Media attention to scrutinize and investigate the evidence.
The formation of a truly independent citizens-based inquiry." http://www.911truth.org/article

Member: Pilots for 9/11 Truth Association Statement: "Pilots for 9/11 Truth is an organization of aviation professionals and pilots throughout the globe that have gathered together for one purpose. We are committed to seeking the truth surrounding the events of the 11th of September 2001. Our main focus concentrates on the four flights, maneuvers performed and the reported pilots. We do not offer theory or point blame. However, we are focused on determining the truth of that fateful day since the United States Government doesn't seem to be very forthcoming with answers."

A True Patriot

In my few brief communications with Dr. Bowman, he was always responsive, courteous, and supportive even for a small fry guy like me. Thank you Dr. Bowman for having the courage to speak up. You will be greatly missed. Your voice may be silent now, but your legacy will carry on. RIP to a great patriot.

Bowman was a real asset to the 9/11 truth movement

This is very sad news. In all the interviews I have listened to in which he talked about 9/11, Robert Bowman came across as being particularly intelligent and articulate, and also a genuinely decent guy.

I have just uploaded to YouTube a remarkable speech Dr. Bowman gave at the International Citizens Inquiry Into 9/11 in Toronto, back in May 2004, titled, "A Fighter Pilot Looks at 9/11." You can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMqqdL6tbTM.

To my knowledge, this was the first time Bowman spoke publicly, questioning the official account of 9/11. Unfortunately the video is in low resolution. But the quality of Bowman's presentation more than makes up for this.

“The most unbelievable of all the wild conspiracy theories is the one our government has told us”

Julie Wilson
August 26, 2013

A highly admired American patriot, advocate of the 9/11 truth movement and dear friend of Alex Jones, Dr. Robert M. Bowman passed away last Thursday in his Florida home.

Dr. Bowman’s career spanned nearly five decades including his service as the former director of the Advanced Space Programs Development (also known as Star Wars) for the U.S. Air Force during the Ford and Carter administrations. He also served as Lt. Col. for the Air Force completing a remarkable 101 combat missions. Academically brilliant, he obtained Ph.D.’s in aeronautics and nuclear engineering from the California Institute of Technology.

An honorary piece by Veterans Today describes Bowman’s shock of the US military’s “insistence on pursuing a purely offensive space weapon capacity – whose only purpose was to launch a sneak attack on Russia and prevail in a nuclear war that would kill tens or even hundreds of millions of people.”

The report says the program was designing space weapons, “including ‘artificial meteorites’ to be dropped on enemy targets, and an energy weapon that could cause whole cities to go up in flames – because it was planning to strike first.”

“During the 1980s and 1990s, he did everything he could to expose the big lie that ‘Star Wars’ was a defensive project, and to work for a sensible, fiscally-responsible, genuinely defensive military posture,” reported Veterans Today.

Back in April of 2011, Dr. Bowman appeared on the Alex Jones Show and discussed his views on the correlation between the economic collapse of America and the pursuit of endless wars. Dr. Bowman accurately described the reasoning behind America’s wars as a way to “secure and maintain an empire for multinational corporations and banks.”

He exposed the government’s abuse of the American people by pointing out their only role as taxpayers funding the wars, leaving the people further impoverished, while the money is directly funneled to the banks and the billionaires.

He expressed the need to no longer have “puppet dictators around the world” that the government supports with troops and weaponry. He strongly called for a “constitutional foreign and military policy.”

Dr. Bowman said, “by bringing our troops home, we can enormously enhance our national security, and at the same time reduce the defense budget by 80%.”

Bowman’s experience as a fighter pilot made him extremely skeptical of the government’s 9/11 narrative. Based on his experience, Bowman “knew that every time a commercial plane goes significantly off-course, a military fighter plane shows up next to it within about ten minutes. The fighter pilot rocks its wings as a signal to ‘follow me’ and get back.”

He wondered how four allegedly hijacked planes flew through America’s skies for nearly two hours without being harassed by US air defenses.

As a member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, Dr. Bob Bowman gave an amazing speech at the 2006 American Scholars Symposium in Los Angeles, in which he exposed the fraud of 9/11, questioning the true motives for the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. “Throughout the speech he discusses the ignorance surrounding the events of 9/11 and its aftermath including the details of the NORAD cover-up surrounding intercept procedures that were not properly executed on that day,” reported Infowars.

See below for a clip of his incredible speech.

Courageous truth telling men such as Bowman rarely find their voice heard the way he did. His patriotism, intellect and bravery will surely be missed by many.

Speaking in Portland Oregon ? or Maine?


From the tags, it looks like Portland, Oregon.

Thanks Dr. Bob!

I think consciousness continues after death and Bob Bowman will somehow be made aware of the triumph of the 9/11 truth movement and the fruits of his labors.

I spoke to Bob on the phone several times to try and convince him to do email blasts to his formidable list of patriots on behalf of BuildingWhat? and AE911Truth's efforts. He always took my call and was courteous to me, and always sent out a personalized blast to 16,000 or so people. I remember thinking about what I should call him the first time we spoke, "Dr. Bowman", or "Bob," when "Dr. Bob" came out. I mean this guy was the former Director of 'Star Wars' and a PhD, but he was a genuine human being. We met in 2007 at Lafayette Park in D.C. when he was leading a march from the Capitol. His speech was riveting. Thanks again!

I was looking for a video (or audio) of the Bob Bowman speech in 2006. Maybe you can find it.

I met Bob Bowman at Lafayette Park on SEP 11, 2006. He was a very warm and genuine fellow. I spent quite a while running through the various questions I had about 9/11.

Later in the day he came to the Galleria Theatre in NW DC and addressed a citizen's jury that was set up by Rick Siegel's 9/11 Eyewitness producers, Jim Brewster and David Shaw.

Years later I would ring him up on his cell phone and chat about ongoing research. He would always answer, never making me wait or call back.

What an honor it was to interact with this amazing patriot.
