Sergeant Lauro "LJ" Chavez, 9/11 Whistle Blower Speaks Out in Cincinnati Post

Sergeant Lauro "LJ" Chavez, 9/11 Whistle Blower Speaks Out in Cincinnati Post - Veterans for 9/11 Truth

I felt it necessary to follow up to a recent story that was published in Cincinnati Post. It was the 1 in 3 believe 9-11 conspiracy theory. I must admit that at first I was overwhelmed with joy that our local paper was actually starting to have real journalism and talk about real issues. Then I read the story and it was a total debunk to make the actual people around the world who feel there was something not right about 9-11, to look like over reacting conspiracy theorists.
Honestly I could care less what is done with this letter, but I feel that I should speak my mind and Ill tell you some things that I have not told many people at all. From 1995 till 2002 I was a Sergeant in the United States Army. Not only this, but I was stationed at United States Central Command, which is located at MacDill AFB in Tampa Florida. I was on active duty when 9-11 happened. In the days prior to the tragedies, we were involved in many exercises. Some of these exercises included the scenarios of hijacked planes crashing into, our building[,] the world trade center, the White House, Sears Tower, and the Pentagon. These drills or exercises as we called them, where classified Top Secret. Having a Top Secret rated clearance I was dumbfounded that they would ever push a training exercise above the level of Secret. Over my 8 years in the Army, I had participated in many exercises around the world, none of which were ever classified over the Secret level.

Ill start by saying a few months prior it was announced by President Bush that Dick Cheney would be heading up operations over NORAD our North American Aerospace Defense Command. Along with many of my peers, we were shocked. Over the years, if you research NORAD, it has always been under the command of a Military officer. It was done this way because the defense of this country has always been in the hands of such. Prior to the months before 9-11 this was all of the sudden changed. Like I said, if you research NORAD and the command structure you will find that it was imposed long ago that the military should be in control of the order to scramble planes in the defense of American air space. For some strange reason, Bush changed this and gave that power to a civilian person on his Staff team yes I know, very interesting.
So, I was standing in the SCIF (Secure Compartmented Information Facility), which is basically this underground bunker command post for USCENTCOM, when the first plane hit. We were watching the fly patterns of all the planes on the aerospace grid. This contained not only all commercial flights at the time, but all military flights, and fake enemy planes that were supposedly put on there for the exercise. Many of the planes sent to intercept the fake blips were scrambled from Andrews which is an air defense AFB for the East Coast. They were sent across the US and left very few planes to defend the capital. After the first plane hit the tower we were all in disbelief. After the initial shock was over, our questions were what are the odds this could happen for real, during a training exercise thats covering the same scenario? We were all at wits end. Then to top all of this off, Cheney gave NORAD the order to stand down scrambling jets to intercept. A few moments later tower 2 was hit. Only after the Pentagon was hit, did he give the orders to scramble the jets to intercept the plane bound for the White House.
To delve even further, as Im standing there watching the towers collapse, next to me is one of my good friends and a former commander of the Army Corps of Engineers. He is a demolitions expert. He was even more surprised than me. When the towers collapsed he kept saying this isnt right, this isnt right. When I asked him what he was talking about he told me that steel buildings dont fall down that way. Even if they are struck by objects; he went on to say that in theory if the top 10 floors were hit, then possibly just that part of the building would fall over and off, but the rest would remain standing. When I asked him, not understanding the implications of demolitions, he told me that it looked as if they were brought down by controlled demolitions. I was utterly amazed, but after he said that it did sort of appear that way.

Thanks Steve for the submission!

NOTE: We have no personal confirmation as to the validity of this story any further than that it was posted on Veterans for 9/11 Truth's website. As with everything that is posted on this site it is up to the viewer to do their own research and reach their own opinions.

IS This Legit?

I have no doubt this is a real army guy, BUT I'm wondering if his views/knowlege expressed was shaped from 9/11 truth documentaries, seems to good to be true and follows a lot of main 9/11 truth talking points. Sorry, can't help but be much as the Vanity Fair NORAD article confirms some of this. Any takes on this?

if we could get a videotaped

if we could get a videotaped deposition it would help

I got the same feeling.

I got the same feeling.

Where's the original

Where's the original Cincinnati Post article?

We need this guy on camera

We need this guy on camera NOW. Somebody buys my ticket and I could be there Sunday... but chances are there's people in Cincinnati who could do it. Preferably local news to start with, although we need someone with better knowledge of the issues to lay down the real interview. Hopefully Alex Jones is on top of this...

Pretty incredible, never the less. We can now confidently state that the 9/11 wargames were NOT typical in any way, because they were 'Top Secret' whereas every other exercise had been labeled no higher than 'Secret'. This is a very strong new talking point to reinforce the wargame evidence. On top of that we have the long- awaited confermation of the Cheney stand- down order! This is even more incredible. Totally blows the NORAD tapes out of the water. Hopefully it will prompt more Air Defense whistleblowers...

If this is legit, it's over.

If this is legit, it's over. The 911 truth movement will have won.

Slow down guys.

The original is a Scripps Howard hit piece

I think this item needs to be carefully verified before any of it is accepted.

Holy ****


Edit: "If you did not know, Thermite is a chemical compound found in many explosives including C4 which I have used many times in the Army. It leaves a distinct smell and identifiable residue upon explosion"

This is BS, damnit! That really taints the whole thing and makes me wonder if it might be a setup.

im gonna go ahead and

im gonna go ahead and contain my excitement until this can be verified. god let this be true. we need insiders to find some courage. hopefully this is just the start of it.

First dibs on Murdoch

I would love to be wildly optimistic, but it is unlikely to be easy to achieve any worthwhile changes, even if there are a hundred whistleblowers. Anyone familiar with how the Kennedy investigations were distorted and inhibited (recommend Gaeton Fonzi - The Last Investigation) will know that we are going to need a lot of skillful work to succeed in restoring our republic. Of course, once there are reasonable grounds to indict we can throw the perps in Gitmo with no lawyers, no charges, no visitors, not even habeas corpus. And we can give ‘em daily waterboard treatments and we can even drop their Aleister Crowley books in the toilet. They are terrorists, yes? (I’d like to volunteer to be on the waterboard crew for Rupert Murdoch).

Please don't dis Aleister Crowley

He's very misunderstood.

The dude was a freak show

The dude was a freak show casseia, I've got to disagree. All that f*cked up secret society shit is just plain bizarre to me, truly weird. Tell me why you think he’s misunderstood, because I’ve heard he was a pretty disturbed charter into some pretty f*cked up shit.

Yes, he was a freak show

and he was also a charlatan. The whole "evilest man in the world" thing was self-promotion. Basically, he was a sexual libertine, which freaked people out, and a drug addict. I personally don't think his involvement with any "secret" society intersected with the kind of secret society crap that is practiced at Bohemian Grove, etc, except insofar as they may imitate the kind of rituals he described. It certainly never hooked him up with wealth and power -- he died broke and alone.

Stuff about him participating in human sacrifice, being Hitler's guru, and probably whatever else you've heard about him in the f-ed up shit department is not accurate, but he thrived on rumors like that and encouraged them rather than dispelled them.

Anyway, this is not connected to 9/11 and I don't want to abuse dz's hospitality, but I DO think he was misunderstood, and I think the central tenets of his "faith" -- Thelema -- are profoundly misunderstood as well. I take them as a sort of complement to the work of Gurdjieff, who posited that man in his natural state has no true will and that the human project is to develop one . Then

"Do what Thou will shall be the whole of the Law.
Love is the Law; Love under Will."

can be understood not as PERMISSION but as ADMONITION.

Awesome video, btw.

Well I don't know, I've

Well I don't know, I've never read his books only read things about him, and the dude creeps me out casseia I'm sry lol! Its like this other weird individual Albert Pike, just very bizarre and creepy.

Don't worry about it.

He creeps a lot of people out and while he was alive I think he enjoyed creeping people out.

What do you think this is?

Go here and pay attention to the clip starting at 5:26

re: What do you think this is?

It was a scfi channel promo. Why do you feel the need to post that link onto a thread that has nothing to do with spaceships???

Sci Fi?


re: Sci Fi?

Yes. Google "911 + scifi + hoax" for more info.

Upon reflection

You know where this crosses the line into "too good to be true"? The point where he offers us not only the goods on the wargames and CD, but conveniently has a friend who can vouch for no plane at the Pentagon.

If he's legit, I'll be the first to apologize.

Very dubious, I agree

Still, nice try though.

Yes, this is bullshit. It

Yes, this is bullshit. It shouldn't be out front here, it makes 9/11 truthers look like saps. This is gay, get it off!!! Again, I'll be the first to admit I'm the sap if it's real.

I agree -- the Building 7

I agree -- the Building 7 references don't ring true either.

I was told by a friend who

I was told by a friend who is a state trooper that has a friend who worked at the Pentagon. He told me that there was a plane. I know that's heresay but it's what he stressed to me. It couldve been a different plane than what was reported however. Focusing on the Pentagon is a waste of time. Why in the world would they fire a missile in broad daylight. They aren't that dumb.

But on this article, WE NEED VERIFICATION!

If this is true then this

If this is true then this guy wouldn't blow the whistle by responding to an editorial for a newspaper. This guy would be breaking this news on all the 9/11 Truth websites and be doing interviews galore.

I mean, if you were this guy, is THIS how you would go public?

I don't follow your logic

..but of course his statement should be recorder and then reported in some newspaper.
He belongs to Veterans for 9/11 Truth - he could be checked through them.

you will when loose change

you will when loose change final cut comes out ;)

Why not just call him?

[dz: removed contact information upon request]

I know Lauro. He's a bit of

I know Lauro. He's a bit of a prankster. His name doesn't even appear in the management of Domin-8. None of the Domin-8 guys have military backgrounds, by the way.

Re: I know Lauro

Mr. George W. Bush, you do not know Lauro. You are anonymously posting slander in an inane attempt to discredit the author. I would be glad to listen to what you really know about Lauro if you were to reply, but I have a feeling that you cannot back up your claims.

Syntax and Grammatical Errors appear deliberate?


This item reminds me of a Google Video that was circulating earlier this year depicting the "confession" of an Iraq War veteran claiming to be responsible for hundreds of deaths of innocent people. It turned out to be a hoax. Which then simply became an embarrassment for the anti-war movement.

Have you thoroughly vetted Lauro Chavez by talking to him by phone or at a minimum emailing him to confirm his story?

At this point in time, I think a high degree of skepticism is in order with regard to Chavez's claims.

1) As of July 1, 2001, an order was issued by the office of the Secretary of Defense transferring final authority on NORAD intercepts from the military high command to the SecDef. Chavez doesn't have his facts right on this one.

2) It would be extraordinary for mere sargent to have the relationship described this way: "one of my good friends and a former commander of the Army Corps of Engineers. He is a demolitions expert."

3) Chavez states: "a few months prior it was announced by President Bush that Dick Cheney would be heading up operations over NORAD"

This, quite simply, cannot be true. First, Rumsfeld quietly introduced the regulatory change that he would be in charge of hijack situations. Second, the announcement of this was not well known to the 9/11 research community until about mid-2003.

Here's an entry in Paul Thompson's Complete 9/11 Timeline that seems to refute Chavez's assertion about Cheney's command role:

For more discussion of Cheney's role on the morning of 9/11 I would recommend that researchers refer to the testimony of Norman Mineta before the 9/11 Commission or the text of Richard Clarke's book, "Against All Enemies".

My point is that Chavez's letter is single-sourced, uncorroborated and therefore cannot be considered as anything more than mere hearsay. His testimony will not stand up in a court of law.

The reason I write this is because I am concerned about the propensity of our movement to fail to understand that unless we come up with hard evidence and clear facts, we are simply going to be spinning our wheels, just as the JFK assassination investigation community has done for the past 43 years.

Efforts such as that of Lauro Chavez don't seem to further our cause, in my humble opinion.

If this isn't BS. I will eat

If this isn't BS. I will eat my hat.

It sounds like a parody of a 911 truthers wet dream.

Need some salt?

So far the guy hasn't backed down. On Alex Jones' show he came across pretty well. He's got documentation of his service.
We'll see if AJ can roll with it and get something more concrete going I suppose.


Dentist Whistleblower Who Met 9/11 Hijackers Poisoned To Death

KTBS | September 22 2006

Comment: This guy obviously paid the price for his efforts to warn the U.S. government that their agents were about to act as the fall guys for a terror attack. This kind of witness elimination mirrors what happened after the JFK assassination.

When did Chavez "speak out" in The Cincinnati Post?

I cannot locate in the newpaper's online search where Chavez actually "spoke out" in the Cincinnati Post.

Can someone else?

The Chavez letter was only

The Chavez letter was only sent to the Editor of the Cincinnati Post. It was not included in any article.

The Cincinnati Post 9/11 Conspiracy Theories article " 1 in 3 believe 9-11 conspiracy " is here:

Forrest Gump

Sounds to me like this boy is having a "Forrest Gump" moment.

Imam plugs Loose Change.

Imam casts doubt over existence of bin Laden
The leader of Muslim imams in Norway said Monday that many Muslims feel they've been under collective suspicion since September 11, 2001. He also questioned whether Osama bin Laden actually exists.

Aftenposten | September 22 2006

Imam Zulqarnain Sakandar Madni answered a long string of questions posed by readers of on Monday, the fifth anniversary of terrorist attacks on the US.

He contended that even though the vast majority of Muslims firmly oppose terrorism, most believe that the West must understand that extremism and terror are difficult to eradicate as long as civilian Muslims face discrimination and are killed by western acts of war.

Asked for his honest opinion on the terrorist organization al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden, the imam said "I think this is something that’s been made up." He also questioned whether the September 11 attacks were actually orchestrated by Muslims, and lent credence to so-called "conspiracy theories" that suggest otherwise.

Among them is one, portrayed in an American movie, that the American authorities themselves were behind the attacks. Imam Zulqarnain Sakandar Madni said he thinks "there's some good evidence that Bush & Co were behind this. See the film that's called 'Loose Change.' An American film! "

Interesting testimony... sounds just too good to be true

We should politely ask to get this as an affidavit kinda thingie...

Why don't we come out very

Why don't we come out very clearly and forcefully on this and say "THIS IS BULLSHIT". It's obviously a fraud, possibly well-intentioned, it IS NOT any legitimate whistleblowing new information. This would be a great opportunity to swat one of these down from the start and discourage more disinfo from spreading.

good idea


This "Chavez" guy sounds

This "Chavez" guy sounds like disinfo assclown to me, don't trust it.

Not a real whistleblower!

I bite my own ass off if that guy is for real.

His chosen name "Chavez" made me suspicious at first sight. But he gave the game awary with the second occasion when in his "account" he paraphrased all the "mainstream 9/11 truth" arguments, one by one...

I'm inclined to bet that even his name might not be true..

I need to cowardly withdraw my bigmouthed promise... bite my own ass off.

I also apologize to Lauro now for being overly sceptical. He has sticked out his head even wider into the open now, appearing on Alex Jones' radio show. Alex has seen his military exit papers. Listen to the interview yourself:

Oops -- block 22 has no signature

Hi, Lauro,

my attention was drawn towards the block 22 of your "Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty":

It lacks a signature in block 22. Why?

thanks for the skepticism

I think you're right, probably a hoax - -
Anyway, here's the Cincypost article it's supposed to be an answer to:

Leave it to a mestizo to

Leave it to a mestizo to wait 5 years to lie about his "story" that Cheney did 911.

These are the hordes of millions the jew world order are bringing over here as stupid, low iq replacements for the only race that can stop them.

But, this story is a 100% bogus lie. Most likely written by a jew or, if this mestizo actually exists, culled from semitically correct "Cheney did 9/11" mostly jew democrat sites such as this bring forward.

There was no "stand down" on 9/11, there was a shuffling planes before 9/11, and strange drills.

As is evident from the TAPES the government released inside NORAD, the four planes left to patrol the east coast couldn't were too late, and couldn't find the hijacked jets in time after getting in the air.

Jews did 9/11.

What? "Jews did 9/11" and

What? "Jews did 9/11" and "" LOL, it doesn’t get any more disinfo then that.

"mestizo . . . .jew world

"mestizo . . . .jew world order. . . jew . . . Jews did 9/11."

How is "Truth Movement" helped by fables of insider confessions or by depraved bigotry?

Judy did it

Judy (in disguise) did nine-eleven. With glasses. She just randomly happens to be Jewish. She hates wistleblowers, but is fond of a good blowjob. Her timing on this one was impeccable. Her previous claim to fame was finding Larry Silverstein's dick. You guys probably believe this, and that Bush is Satan. (Actually the god of the Jews, Christians, and Mooslems is Satan). Bush is just his ass liquor. You guys should find a true Religion such as Wing-TV, who think that Terry Schiavo deserved to live. THAT bitch and her BALLOONS! The Twin Towers were great, I had sex with them. Creepy bastards from building 7 were watching the whole time. What a bunch of pervs.

You keep on the breaking news Bloggers -- one day

Get a grip

Don't get so worked up into a frenzy that you can't even phrase an intelligible sentence. Are you one of "the low [IQ] replacements for the only race that can stop them."

Where's the laugh track?

Jews did 9/11 huh? all by

Jews did 9/11 huh? all by themselves? its that simple? get the hell outta here you racist assclown. Israeli government/intelligence agencies involved? you bet. does that mean "the jews did it"? no. you dont really think that simplistically do you? wait, look who im asking. nevermind.

It was the neo-cons don't

It was the neo-cons don't bother to ask me what it means because I have a low IQ ;) Like majority of americans. I agree with everything the media and the government love sheep :D

Dammit! I got all excited

Dammit! I got all excited while reading the article until I got to point of "demolition expert" saying "it isn't right, it isn't right" before the official account of why these buildings collapsed came out. If I initially thought it was controlled demolition, I'd wait to find out who was responsible and the reason for these buildings coming down before saying it's not right. Just my 2 cent.

I'd say: be a bit less

I'd say: be a bit less paranoid and a bit more patient until this story can at least be thoroughly checked.

Or check it out FIRST

and THEN post it.

How is calling bullshit on something paranoid, anyway? 

I agree it should have been

I agree it should have been checked first. This way it may well create nothing but false hope and confusion, so I guess the editors of this website should have checked this story before posting it. (Small effort.)
Dutch regards from Amsterdam, VAB

What would have made the

What would have made the letter more believable would be if it had only addressed NORAD stuff...otherwise this is pretty much pure fiction meant to excite us truthers. The more we can quickly disseminate and identify "to good to be true" disinfo(global hawk at pentagon eyewitness anyone?) the less the idiot "9/11 debunkers" will have to use against us.

But the guy who died, that had witnessed Pakistani handlers controlling the hijackers news item today was definately a big key:

Judging from the spelling

Judging from the spelling and grammar in this post, I doubt whether the person is capable of reading a cake recipe, much less judging the mission of central command. It's a phony, generated by a product of our public school system. I'm thinking, about 16 years old.

This reminds me...

Of when Stanley Hilton came out with his "information."

"It was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying ‘Go find me a way to do this."

Yeah, there's no way Cheney

Yeah, there's no way Cheney would ever have directly made the orders this guy describes. If they were that sloppy about tossing around the names of the critical orcistrators, there's no way they could have gotten away with it for this long. And if things had been that obvious to people at NORAD, they definitely would have come out about it long before now.

Agreed. Fake.

Agreed. Fake.


Come on... How hard did they try to hide this? Consider all the evidence and ask yourself how hard they tried to cover it up. The arrogance here is... astronomical. That is what will be their undoing. Thank God.

I met Lauro

I met Lauro the other night and I got a very good feeling, vibe, gut reaction to him. My instincts say he's legit. I thanked him the other night and I'll thank him again now, we appreciate it very much Lauro. Mucas Gracias.

Anomaly of 9/11 truth

Why have 2800 Americans sacrificed their lives for the War crime in Iraq yet no NYFD come forward to claim the souls of their fallen brethren..... I'll post this query tomorrow in case no one sees it......

I find this writer to be

I find this writer to be credible based upon what he asserts.
Grammatical errors and the fact the company he works for
doesn't have ex-military in management does not discredit him.
The reaction of his friend, a demolition expert, upon seeing the towers fall is the same reaction many familiar with demolitions had,
even reporters said the same thing on 9/11. Thermite does have a distinct signature and odor and is used in c-4 according to our own
Dr. Jones, in a speech he gave which is on tape. I have also read that
it is true that NORAD authority to shoot down hijacked planes was given to Cheney by Bush in prior months - an unprecented move in ]
military history and this is documented by truthers as well. What appears to be new information presented by this man is that the Cheney gave the stand down order to military right before the second plane hit and he heard this order comtemporaneously with its being issued. If he and others can verify this, that would be a very big deal.
Very big. This appears to me to be the most important element of his story. This needs to be verified if it is true and other witnesses
must be found in the military who will talk. It does not surprise me
that he has not come forward sooner - he is revealing classified info and could get into some trouble, I would think, as would those
verifying these claims, should they be true. As far as his choice in how to reveal this info, I find that plausible also. Had he call CNN to divulge this, he'd be ignored, as we all know. This is a young guy, not a political strategist.
What he says needs to be verified and in the interim assumed possible, very possible.

I usually smell a fake from

I usually smell a fake from a distance, why don't you?

Have your sense of smell checked...

I agree that what Sgt. Lauro Chavez says is very damning to Dick Cheney and the rest of the criminals in the Bush administration, but when you consider the risk that he is taking by speaking out you CANNOT simply think that this man is a fake. What would he have to gain but a few days of notoriety in the 9/11 Truth Movement which is mainly limited to the Internet? For this do you really think he would claim to be a part of USCENTCOM and have access to such information that he claims in his letter to the editor of The Cincinnati Post? I seriously doubt that.

At a recent 9/11 Truth meeting Lauro struck me as being very sincere and knowledgeable in his efforts to expose the truth about 9/11. We will find out more in time.

Let his story be fully vetted. We have all been waiting for more government/military personnel to come forward with inside information. You certainly do not have any qualifications to discredit him solely based on a letter you have read no matter how many 9/11 documentaries you may have watched over the Internet.

"A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves" – Edward R. Murrow

Also, let's consider the

Also, let's consider the repercussions this young man now faces
because of what he has stated. If he's making this up, he's likely to be in some very deep s*&t with the military and gov't for falsifying information against the US gov't and naming names as well, in terms of what other military had to say on the subject, especially naming tCheney as giving a stand down order around the time the second plane hit. As a young man with military background, he has to know this isn't going to sit well with them and may constitiute treason if it were not true I find it unlikely someone would be willing to risk that in order to pull off a hoax. He is additionally at risk if his story is true. Just look at what has happened to military personnel who have spoken up recently.
Also, being ex-military would not necessarily shield him from charges of treason
by clearly stating Cheney ordered a stand down well before whatever
it was hit the pentagon. That's a lot to risk to pull off a hoax.

...WE NEED 911blogger in every Language, is that possible ?

Edit: wrong blog, sorry

If that were true.

If this guy is for real,and there was an article in a paper.
Even more so if this is the truth.He's probally had an accident by now.
If you are real Sargent....You will take your rightfull place along side the fireman heros of 9/11

Cheney gave orders on 9/11

Mineta responds to an opening question by Commissioner Hamilton about the events in the PEOC and an alleged shoot down order. He describes a conversation between Cheney and a young man:
Mineta: "During the time that the airplane was coming into the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the Vice President…the plane is 50 miles out…the plane is 30 miles out….and when it got down to the plane is 10 miles out, the young man also said to the vice president "do the orders still stand?" And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and said "Of course the orders still stand, have you heard anything to the contrary!??"

Read the rest of his

Read the rest of his testimony. He said he found later it was a shoot down.

But if you go by that testimony, then you are agreeing that Flight 77 hit the Pentagon! Congrats, case closed, lets move onto our lives now!

Here I am if you have questions

I'd like to start by saying that I dont appreciate my letter being stripped down. Also, let me clairfy on the Cheney order. I in no way ever heard Cheney give the order to stand down. I was at USCENTCOM and I don t know where he was. But I was told that there was an order to stand down. So, who gave the order I dont know, BUT NORAD should have scrambled planes to intercept. Thats what the instructions are ...very simple thing to do.

Also, I didnt choose to come out and blow the wistle - it chose its own time. Out of pure and utter disbelief toward the Cincy post - I wrote that letter. And i just wanted to get this stuff off my chest. Do you know what its like knowing something that not many people know and not being able to say anything because you'll either be passed off as some idiot fake or shot and killed.

I fear not death, but I do fear for my children growing up in this world. Thats why I did this. Thats why I joined the military.

I do work at Domin-8 as their Information security manager. Call me sometime, since you have my signiture block - also, i put that there so that Mr White didnt think I was some weirdo.



formerly SGT Chavez US ARMY active duty

Re: Here I am if you have questions

Richard A. Clarke gave this administration more than enough time to prepare for the attacks of 9/11. All of our military assets were away on exercises that morning allowing a hole in our defenses enabling the attacks to happen. Americans need to start asking a lot of questions right now. We need to stand by our rights given to us by United States Constitution.

I should not need to mention the next disaster in Amercian history but I feel that is is neccesary to further the point, that date is 8/29. This is when Katrina made second landfall and the second time we were let down by this administration.


Ahem, you do greatly err

> We need to stand by our rights given to us by United States Constitution.

This is intended to be a gently correction not a flame. Part of the problem with our lack of control of our gov't is our lack of understanding of how this all works. I see this notion I see voiced by many a good folks who love this country, however we are/were not grant/ed rights by the Constitution. Our rights inhere in us, the Constitution is intented to be a chain on government, our rights are antecedent to the state. In fact we are not a party to the Constitution. This is why we always get balled up when we go into court demanding our Constitutional rights. If the gov't grants us rights, they can take them away. Our rights are granted to us by God and only he can take them away.

This court case is instructive:

But, indeed, no private person has a right to complain, by suit in court, on the ground of a breach of the Constitution. The Consitution it is true, is a compact, but he is not a party to it.
~ Padelford, Fay & Co. vs. Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Savanah 14 Ga. 438, 520.

So, I think once we get this stuff straight we can take back our gov't from the usurpers.

Could you make an affidavit?

"Also, let me clairfy on the Cheney order. I in no way ever heard Cheney give the order to stand down. I was at USCENTCOM and I don t know where he was. But I was told that there was an order to stand down. So, who gave the order I dont know"

Excuse me? Now you don't know who gave the order? Scrolling up, I can still read this:

"Then to top all of this off, Cheney gave NORAD the order to stand down scrambling jets to intercept."

That's contradictionary, and doesn't help the cause of truth. We need precise witness reports.

Could you please modify your letter to the Cincinnati Post and make it a full witness report, removing all ambigous parts, separate facts from comments, and facts from what your personal impression was (but leave that personal stuff in)? It would be extremely helpfull, if you could put this testimony down as a signed affidavit as well...

I beleive that it was Cheney

I beleive that it was Cheney that gave the order to stand down - thats my opinion. I know for a fact that there was an order given, because we were told when we asked about why defense measures were not taken. After all I have read and studdied, that was my opinion - what people dont understand is that my letter to the editor, was a rant. It included both facts and my opinions. In my radio interviews, i'll clarify them. Me saying that Cheney gave the order to stand down is what I beleive to be true. That order WAS given, and only him or someone higher than him has that power over NORAD.

I'm am in now way trying to hinder what the truth movement is doing, but what i can do is provide with certainty, that there was prior knowledge. I know about as much of the full story as any of you - and we will probably never know the true story. I felt it my duty to speak out and say that i bore witness to many thilngs that were not public. Like the exercises taken place and the senarios proposed in those excercises. Speaking with my friend, the former commander of ACOE was true. And those who dont believe a mere sgt could speak to such a high ranking official, need to do your homework on central command. I only worked with Colonel's O6 or Above.

Also, I understand many of you will be skeptical of me - good thats your job - but it does not change the fact that I know what I know and saw the things I saw. Now, if you want to bash me for that - for your interpertation of my letter instead of asking my intent of the letter - then thats fine.

We have too large of a battle ahead of us to be fussing back and fourth with each other. I hope that my intentions to speak out will cause more military personnel that knew to speak out as well.

I will clarify my facts and submit them.



Don't take the skepticism too hard. If you've been following the truth movement at all over the past 5 years, you know that the amount of intentional disinfo churned out in that time could fill volumes. This (leaked?) letter to the editor - half testimony and half opinion - is a poor first exposure to your story. A signed affadavit of your eyewitness account will help a lot. Best of luck.

its no bashing - we' ve to verify

Hi Lauro,

I' from the Truth Movement in Europe - we first were very happy about your whistleblowing but then a litte bit concerned how we can verify it. in Europe there are (compared with the US) not so many 911 truth groups and websites, but there are some authors who publish books or articles. I'm writing on the internet, mainly about womens' affairs but my "hobby" is 911 truth. I'm in a network with authors in Germany and we see 911 as a "secret government MIHOP". That means we focus on drills on 911 and able danger and other things and not on pods or no planes. (Most of us doubt planes at Pentagon and Shanksville while we don't check blurred pictures from the world trade center impact - it's just a matter of priorities and our "smoking guns" are physical impossibilities and "excerise going real" like london 7/7).

We don't want to bash you because it's important that you speak out when your story is true. But we have waited so long for a whistleblower saying 911 was an exercise going real that we hardly could believe our luck. Please understand that we quote you with some restraint at the mass media and their propaganda are very strong in suppressing critical 911 thinking in our countries (in Germany and Switzerland at least sometimes some kind of challenging the official conspiracy theory is possible and in Austria no corporate newspaper or magazine hat ever done something else than spreading the official story and bashing dissent.

Perhaps we'd like to have a big movement where we can "bash" each other but our conditions force us to pragmatism. We have to check every new assertion, especially when it proves our theories. It's important for the American 911 movement and for the whole world that the 911 truth comes into the mainstream in each country because 911 is the basic lie of international politics. we have to prevent the coming war against Iran - and we don't have much time for it. One chance can be the exposure of the 911 myth and to spread plausible versions of what has happened - I favor the "drill went real"-version that can include planes, drones, partly planes and missiles or what combination ever. In Europe this is the somewhat "natural approach" because we knew the NATO-CIA false flag-terror called "Gladio" which created terrorist groups in different countries and used them to intimidate people by bombing places where ordinary folk was. the Gladio-guided terrorists where also used to hijack or assassinate politicians who challenge Angloamerican hegemony. So it is perhaps easier for us to see "Al Qaida" as a new version of "Gladio" and not be distracted by Bin Laden-Videos and stuff like that. In Greece Gladio operated a terrorist cell called November 19 which was "prosecuted" by anti terror units. Then it turned out that the terroists and the anti-terror-units were identical - for us Able Danger/Able Warrior sound similar.

Dear Lauro, I was a bit skeptical about your letter because you said you were 25 and have a 9 year old daughter. Well, teenage pregnancies can happen, but when did you then join the military? As you have given your military record to Alex Jones (his website is also known well in Europe) it is clear that you were born in 1976 and meant that you were 25 in 2001. The other point was that your friend at the military spoke of controlled demolition - I think an expert for military explosives could recognize that WTC 1 & 2 were far beyond crontrolled demolition (like WTC 7 was).

There some whistleblowing would also be useful as the question is discussed what brought the towers down (environmental organisations have never seen dust so fine pulverized; the volunteers suffered from various diseases that remind us of radiation poisoning et cetera). And perhaps others taking part in the drills and being shocked when they realized that everything went real could also speak out....


The other point was that

The other point was that your friend at the military spoke of controlled demolition - I think an expert for military explosives could recognize that WTC 1 & 2 were far beyond crontrolled demolition (like WTC 7 was). you mean 'beyond CD' like this???

don't know what it is....

I don't know what it is but I've seen enough videos of controlled demolition and they look more like WTC 7 than like WTC 1 & 2. and if you mind the surroundings of a building brought down by controlled demolition there are houses in the vincinity and also cars. of course no people, but more precautions don't seen to be necessary. and afterwards there seemed to be no health hazard. of couse WTC 1 & 2 were much bigger than the buildings in these examples, but you can't attribute everything to that. the towers exploded more than it was like an implosion, you see pyroclastic flow streaming from the top. huge parts of the outer steel structure were smashed into other buildings. the poor people trapped on the top of the buildings were torn to very tiny parts forming a bone dust could. this spring 700 human parts were discovered on the roof of the Deutsche Bank building.

witnesses say they were blown up by a hot dust cloud and fell down after a few meters; most say they couldn't see where they were. there are pictures (of course they have to be verified but they proably were once taken by mainstream media photographers and are now on 911 movement pages) of burnt cars away from "ground zero". a power down is reported not only affecting cables which were surely sometimes cut by the falling towers but also radio communication and cell phones. some attribute this to EMP (electromagnetic pulse). environmental organisations tested the dust and said they'd never seen concrete pulverized so much; it were the finest particles ever measured. of course all this is not typical for controlled demlotion and also not the various diseases of the frist responders.

I've heard the 20 september program on were these helpers complain at a meeting that so many of them are dying; every speaker has severe lung problems. one lets a number of people in the audience get up and then explains that if they were first responders they will be dead wihthin 4 years. the list of symptoms of the volunteers could be attributed to radiation as there are many symptoms possible and some are "typical" like loosing the hair - which happened to some. residents who were volunteers and got sick were "decontaminated" in a detox program but then went back to their contaminated apartments. elder people who could not afford to leave new york had "no chance", and some companies hired workers for cleaning which got sick or died (see indira singh on guns and butter, part one).

from all this I would not rule out some kind of hydrogen or thermonuclear weapon. I think we can be sure that the explosives which caused such tremendous effects are not in the arsenal of a few companies offering controlled demolition. and at last two quite strange observations: after 9/11 media were filled with alleged danger that terrorists could start another attack with nuclear weapons. why were such stories present in the aftermath, was it some kind of preemptive measure? and why was the pile called ground zero after a few days (media often used "the day after" as a title or subtitle in their stories)? second observation: 80 "unexpected" radioactive hop spots where found in new york now (nowhere else was an official search for that as articles claim). no names of places are given, exept 2 or 3 locations in parks.

Bush announced Cheney would head up NORAD?

You said, "Ill start by saying a few months prior it was announced by President
Bush that Dick Cheney would be heading up operations over NORAD our
North American Aerospace Defense Command"

Was that classified when Bush said it, never saw that in the public record. I did see orders issued by Vice Admiral Fry June 1, of 2001 that put Rumsfeld in charge of scrable authorizations.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Instruction CJCSI 3610.01A (dated 1
June 2001) was issued for the purpose of providing "guidance to the Deputy Director for Operations (DDO), National Military Command Center (NMCC), and operational commanders in the event of an aircraft piracy (hijacking) or request for destruction of derelict airborne objects." This new instruction superseded CJCSI 3610.01 of 31 July 1997.

This CJCSI states that "In the event of a hijacking, the NMCC will be
notified by the most expeditious means by the FAA. The NMCC will, with the exception of immediate responses as authorized by reference d, forward
requests for DOD assistance to the Secretary of Defense for approval."

There is also Mineta's testimony that indicates Cheney was giving orders on 9/11.

Alfons v911t

I fully believe you Lauro

To Lauro Chavez,
I fully believe what you say. I didn't know if you were following this post, but now that I see you are, I would like to address you personally. First of all, please bear in mind that most of the people
posting here have never been in the position you are in now, risking personal safety by coming forward to do the right thing. They simply do not understand the fear and repercussions that accompany such an action. While I commend all truthers for taking a stand - you simply cannot know the personal costs of coming forward with meaningful testimony truly means until you've been there yourself and put your own life, and less importantly, reputation on the line for what you believe. Also, one in this position also fears for his family. It is truly agonizing and I know a lot of soul searching went on before you posted your letter to the paper. I am familar with this agony not as a truther (I do not have unique insight or testimony to provide to the Truth movement) but as a witness in a highly publicized mafia case who learned of FBI
corruption and went to the paper over it. I chose to do the right thing and I personally know the costs of making that decision. On the webpage you have been asked to substantiate your service with the military and come forward - substantiate your claims. That's a big step to take. You'll be in the limelight. Your life may change, alot. 911ers have been waiting a long time for someone in the military to come forward, as you have. There are many, many others who know what you know. They have not, as yet, shown the courage you have. I ask you to think about going to the website and telling your story. It's that important. I think you know it is already. It is my opinion that you and your family would be in fact be safer than you already are by more people knowing your story. That's my opinion.
Whatever you choose to do, God Bless You and Yours. Brush off the criticism - you know the truth - and proceed from there. I am grteful to you that you went this far with your story and commend you for that.
With Deepest Respect,

He is real becaue I work with him

He goes by the name LJ and he is for real because I work with him at Domin-8. He will be going live on Alex Jones today at 12:30 eastern I am told. Everyone needs to know that this letter he wrote was only a letter to the editor for the Cincinnati Post and was never published to LJ or my knowledge. I also wrote a letter to the editor and this is what sparked LJ to contact Mr. White at the Cincinnati Post with his letter. Going public was never intended with this letter as it is an opinion mixed with fact piece.

LJ does have insider information which I assume will be clarified today on Alex Jones. Some how his letter was leaked and got all over the internet without his knowledge so please try and give the guy a break here.

Lauro emailed me the letter

Lauro emailed me his letter, and joined our v911t group.
He said, "Thanks to the Internet, one of the few freedoms we have left, these truths can be sent to the public. Thank God we dont have to rely on news media to get this information out to everyone!"

Also he said:
"Honestly I could care less what is done with this letter, but I feel
that I should speak my mind and Ill tell you some things that I have
not told many people at all."

So I proliferated it, I apologise if I assumed too much. Lauro's story is important, and needs to get out. Now it is.

Alfons v911t

He is Real

He gave his phone number to make himself available for interviews, and did one on the Alex Jones show today and posted a pdf of his honorable discharge papers. A true patriot. The real question now - when will someone like Keith Olbermann interview him on television? Write your favorite blogs and editors and make sure they know he's verified now...

This guy's on the AJ show now

Pretty interesting...

Oh man.... I think Alex has

Oh man.... I think Alex has just met his Sam Danner!!!!!!

Sergeant Lauro "LJ" Chavez DD214 now Available

Proof of Lauro's Military Record is now available

Alfons v911t

Pretty interesting Stuff

If this guy is the real deal we need to get him out in the mainstream, and Mr Chavez if you could you should probably write a detailed article or paper on who you are and what you experienced, ESPECIALLY on 9-11-01 and if you can try to recall everyone you where with that day and if they would also be willing to come out

Just another weapon for the

Just another weapon for the fight against tyranny. Thanks Lauro.

Truth smells good

Dear Mr. Chavez,
I saw that original article, and it irritated the sh** out of me, as so many of the "conspiracy" debunking articles do.
I had EXACTLY the opposite reaction when I read your letter! I thought: "this guy's in for some sh** now!"
After reading all the coments, (more irritation, unfortunately) it seems that, in the end, and especially after seeing the pdf of your discharge, the concensus has changed, and there is definitely more acceptance of your statements (there should NOT have been such "bashing" in the first place!).
Good luck to you, and thank you, thank you.
(And by the way, I had EXACTLY the same reaction you report that your friend had when seeing the WTC buildings demolished: "That's not right...")

Listen to Lauro on Alex Jones

Listen to Lauro on Alex Jones

the Dutch 9/11 Truth Movement salutes you

Dear Mr. Chavez,

On behalf of the Dutch 9/11 Truth Movement, I salute you!

Best regards from the Netherlands,

Truth smells good

I fell for this one and made copies to give to my neighbor
then found out he didn't receive any medal for afghanistan and line
22 was not signed. Now I must tell him the info may be suspect,
It has been one let down after another.


The Towers were constructed by stringers holding the outer walls together. Any failure of a sequential portion of those stringers would have caused the binding forces on the remainder of the structure to rend and become unstable. That, coupled with the force of a 300,000 Lb plus aircraft , and the dibilating effect of the extreme heat generated by the burning fuel was enough to cause the structures to loose their integrity, and subsequently collapse inwardly. Also, think of this, if you stack dominoes so high, then smack them one forth of the way down, what happens? Just my thoughts. Thanks.

Do you have the blueprints

Do you have the blueprints of the wtc I heard they disappeared. Not like it really matters anymore and the structure was built 100 times stronger then it should have been you could have people side by side fill up the building without any problems. The builders also learned from the time the empire state building was hit by a cargo plane so if a plane hit the WTC it would be like a fly smashing into a wall..

it's different

dominoes or pancakes or wet noodles can't explain the collapse of a complex constructed building with strong core columns, columns at the outer walls, trusses and floors. some structural engineers stated that the WTC was designed to withstand the impact of SEVERAL boeing 707. the 707 is comparable to a 767 and has a higher maximum speed. of course the constructers thought of a plane with fuel (probably short after takeoff, i.e. practically with full tanks) - that's what the supporters of the official conspiracy theory now deny. but have you ever heard of a plane without fuel crashing into buildings?
IF the towers could have been brought to collapse by airplane impact and weakening of structural steel then the collapse would not have been symmetrical. in fact steel is an excellent conductor of heat which means if you heat one end the heat goes to the other side so it takes a long time to make the whole steel beam hotter. in the film "911 mysteries" which you can see on the internet kerosene heaters are shown that use jet grade fuel.

Where Are the 9/11 Whistleblowers?

I see a number of red flags here.

- Why would any real whistleblower write "I could care less what is done with this letter"?

- The author doesn't write in a style that I would expect of someone with a "Top Secret rated clearance."

- How many sergeants have Top Secret rated clearance? I am not playing an attorney here -- meaning, I don't know the answer. Maybe someone can enlighten me. But it seems possible that the author is trying to simultaneously play to some kind of "everyman" theme, while also claiming to be some super-insider with the clearance claim.

If you’ve ever wondered why there aren’t (or don’t seem to be) more 9/11 whistleblowers — particularly, ANY with true inside-the-plot knowledge — I have written a scholarly essay about it, offered at the link above.
