Scheduling the War on Terror

If I were to tell you that the neoconservatives scheduled the war on terror before 9/11, and that they have now scheduled an obviously politically-driven end date for the war on terror, would that convince you that 9/11 was a hoax?

I mean, after all, if the war on terror was planned before 9/11 and if the so-called "never-ending" or "100 year war" against supposedly widespread and powerful enemies were to be planned to end in a year and a half, wouldn't that provide a big hint that the war on terror isn't what you've been told . . . that you'd been had?

Well, before 9/11, the U.S. planned the wars against Afghanistan and Iraq (and Iran). So the claim by the neocons that they have invaded the middle east in order to get the bad guys who carried out 9/11 just isn't true.

9/11 and The Left

Several prominent liberal writers are arguing that 9/11 is a distraction from the fight for progressive causes. Are they right?

Riddle Me This

Before I address that question, let me ask another one:

Q: What do Daniel Ellsberg, Howard Zinn, Medea Benjamin, Robert McChesney, Gore Vidal, Thom Hartmann, Rabbi Michael Lerner, Doris "Granny D" Haddock, Ray McGovern, Paul Hawken, David Cobb, Randy Hayes, Ernest Callenbach, Dennis Bernstein, Paul H. Ray, Michael Franti, Janeane Garafalo and Ed Asner all have in Common?

A: All of these leading liberal voices believe that 9/11 may have been an inside job.




I'm reposting this in light of George Monbiot's attack on the 9/11 truth movement based claims that Bush is too incompetent to have carried out 9/11.

Remember how TV character Detective Columbo pretended he was bumbling and dumb, so that people would underestimate him?

In his recent article, well-known liberal writer William Pitt says "the 'incompetence' thing is nonsense . . . Can anyone still think this was all by accident?" In this article, Pitt recognizes that Bush and his administration are not as incompetent as they seem; that in fact, they have gotten exactly what they wanted all along.

Indeed, the neocons have openly advocated civil war in Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries as a strategic plan.

Pitt, and the neocons, are speaking about Iraq. But their reasoning applies equally well to 9/11.

There's NEVER Been A Real 9/11 Investigation

The founder of Wikipedia has launched a new website called Wikia. Wikia is already ranked the 1,734th most popular website by Alexa. 9/11 truth is starting to bust through at Wikia. The following post is an example. Vote to support this post, and Slipgrid's post, and post your own 9/11 truth posts at Wikia!.

There's NEVER Been A Real 9/11 Investigation

A quick look at the government's investigations into 9/11 reveals that -- not only has there never been a real investigation -- but the behavior of government representatives in willfully obstructing all attempts at investigation comprises evidence of guilt. Specifically, in all criminal trials, evasiveness, obstruction, and destruction of evidence all constitute strong circumstantial evidence that the accused is guilty or, at the very least, not to be believed. 9/11 is no different.

For example, the former director of the FBI says there was a cover up by the 9/11 Commission.

And the 9/11 Commissioners knew that military officials lied to the Commission, and considered recommending criminal charges for such false statements, yet didn't bother to tell the American people. (free subscription required).

Indeed, the co-chairs of the Commission now admit that the Commission largely operated based upon political considerations.

9/11 Commission co-chair Lee Hamilton says "I don't believe for a minute we got everything right", that the Commission was set up to fail, that people should keep asking questions about 9/11, that the 9/11 debate should continue, and that the 9/11 Commission report was only "the first draft" of history.

9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey said that "There are ample reasons to suspect that there may be some alternative to what we outlined in our version . . . We didn't have access . . . ."

And former 9/11 Commissioner Max Cleland resigned from the Commission, stating: "It is a national scandal" (; "This investigation is now compromised" (; and "One of these days we will have to get the full story because the 9-11 issue is so important to America. But this White House wants to cover it up" (

Man Died in WTC 7 Collapse

What Really Happened has a round up regarding WTC 7. What is stunning, if true, is that someone died because of the demolition of WTC7. If confirmed, then the WTC 7 demo was homicide, folks.

When 7 World Trade Center came down on Sept. 11, an agent on loan from Washington, special officer Craig Miller, perished PDF download (link expired)] The Secret Service New York Field Office was located in 7 World Trade Center ... Master Special Officer Craig Miller, died during the rescue efforts.

NYPD Officer Heard Building 7 Bombs

Prisonplanet reminds us of NYPD officer Craig Bartmer's testimony about WTC7:

... former NYPD officer and first responder, who states that he clearly heard bombs tear down Building 7 as he ran away from its collapse.

NYPD officer Craig Bartmer awoke on 9/11 to images of the World Trade Center burning. Knowing colleagues who worked inside the towers, he immediately headed for ground zero to help with the rescue efforts.

BARTMER: "I was real close to Building 7 when it fell down... That didn't sound like just a building falling down to me while I was running away from it. There's a lot of eyewitness testimony down there of hearing explosions. I didn't see any reason for that building to fall down the way it did -- and a lot of guys should be saying the same thing. I don't know what the fear is coming out and talking about it? I don't know -- but it's the truth."


BARTMER: "I walked around it (Building 7). I saw a hole. I didn't see a hole bad enough to knock a building down, though. Yeah there was definitely fire in the building, but I didn't hear any... I didn't hear any creaking, or... I didn't hear any indication that it was going to come down. And all of a sudden the radios exploded and everyone started screaming 'get away, get away, get away from it!'... It was at that moment... I looked up, and it was nothing I would ever imagine seeing in my life. The thing started pealing in on itself... Somebody grabbed my shoulder and I started running, and the shit's hitting the ground behind me, and the whole time you're hearing "boom, boom, boom, boom, boom." I think I know an explosion when I hear it... Yeah it had some damage to it, but nothing like what they're saying... Nothing to account for what we saw... I am shocked at the story we've heard about it to be quite honest."

Later in the film [Loose Change], Bartmer highlights the possibility that the attack was run from Building 7, as former German technology minister Andreas von Buelow has also postulated, and that it was then demolished to destroy the evidence.

BARTMER: "If the means and the motive are they where would they pull it off from? The Office of Emergency Management was in Building 7. That was a hardened bunker built to withstand just about anything that New York would face. That building had a lot of important shit in it and there was enough stuff in that building to bury evidence on other fronts - financial records, government records. There's no way that that just fell down on its own, I don't believe it."


Political Judo

The Chinese word for "crisis" is a combination of the words "danger" and "opportunity".

We are certainly in a very dangerous time. The folks who brought us Afghanistan and Iraq are now set to launch a war against Iran.

The Congress-critters are spineless jellyfish. Indeed, Hillary Clinton and other "leading" democrats have made noises in support of attacking Iran. The mainstream media is still horrible, and won't cover false flag attacks, the most important facts about 9/11, or the most credible spokespeople for the 9/11 truth movement.

Given that the neocons hell-bent on war are not listening to the people -- even though we've sent millions of letters and emails and written devastating critiques on websites and in editorials -- things are pretty bleak.


But, this crisis is also an unparalleled opportunity. Never before have so many understood the world's secret history of false flag attacks. Never before has there been an opportunity to peel back the lid on 2,000 years or so of hidden facts, to destroy the false myths created by the warmongers, and to create something new.

Love Versus Hate

I know alot of people in the 9/11 truth movement, since I've been involved in the struggle for several years and have worked with alot of good folks.

It seems that those who are doing the best work, having the biggest effect in educating people to the fact that 9/11 was an inside job, and are best moving the ball downfield towards bringing the perpetrators of 9/11 to justice are largely motivated by -- ugh, I know you don't want to hear this -- love.

Love Is Weak

What?! you ask. This is about murder and treason and false flags and deceit and punishment. How can you talk about such a frilly and irrelevant concept as love? We need more FIRE in our bellies. We need to get PUMPED UP. A little HATE is good!

Well, that hasn't been my experience. My experience is that those who are least effective and who are most disrupting the 9/11 truth movement are driven by hatred.

Contrary to what you might believe, love STRENGTHENS you and INCREASES your ability to kick some serious tail. Don't believe me?

A Call to DISorganization

I'm all for organizing for 9/11 truth and justice. I do alot of it myself.

However, just a quick reminder. The more organized and public, the easier it is for the disinfo folks to infiltrate and shut it down.

So by all means, organize and join groups. But just remember to do a good chunk of your work on behalf of 9/11 truth on your own, anonymously, and away from organizations.

The Ends and the Means

How can we figure out who to trust? How do we know who is telling the truth and who is lying? How do we know who is helping the efforts for truth and justice and who is instead harming such efforts?

Well, one important test is to look at the PROCESS people are using. In other words, forget for a minute what someone is saying. Instead, focus on how they are doing things.

Indeed, President George W. Bush has said many beautiful things about democracy and security, values and principals, freedom and liberty. But what has he actually done? Hasn't he actually acted by using a process which is authoritarian, destructive of innocent lives, freedoms, liberties, American values and human dignity?

As another example, in the 9/11 truth movement, the following are some red flags that someone is not acting in the best interests of truth and justice:

- Spending more time attacking members WITHIN the truth movement than attempting to bring the perpetrators of the horrific 9/11 attacks to justice

- Working in "gangs" to attack 9/11 truthers with false claims, making it seem like many people believe the false accusations being made about those working for 9/11 truth

Phone Calls Analysis

Phone Call Analysis

I believe it is vital for 9/11 truth seekers to move beyond demonstrating that “the government lied,” or “the government’s story cannot be true.” The people want to know what actually happened, and it is up to provide them with a workable theory consistent with the known facts. With this idea in mind I embarked upon an exhaustive examination of the phone calls made from the planes on 9/11. For this investigation I have relied upon Paul Thompson’s Terror Timeline.

What I have found is that all the phone calls are real. They describe real events taking place on the planes as described by the persons making the calls to the best of their ability and knowledge. It would have been very difficult to fake a phone call to a loved one, or even to a stranger, and that was not done– although some of the information from the phone calls detrimental to the official story was deleted, distorted, or simply ignored by the government and a compliant media. Deletion is of course much easier than fabrication.

The phone calls were not only allowed by the conspirators. They were probably encouraged as they helped to maximize the horror and shock felt by the nation, which of course paved the way to fulfill the conspirators’ goals. They also performed the vital function of apparently identifying the hijackers as “Middle Eastern looking,” and having come from seats on the airplane supposedly occupied by Arabs.

Pledge of Allegiance

Pledge of Allegiance

Here are excerpts from an essay on the new torture legislation and how it affects people who claim that the government has engaged in conspiracies (such as 9/11):

"I have learned the entire history of the U.S., both good and bad. I have learned of her honorable and selfless actions. I have also learned about her brutally deceitful and murderous actions, including the frequent use by our government of false flag terror.

But even after learning of all of the deceit and murder committed by our government, I still have strong positive feelings for the United States. My forefathers fought and died for liberty. My ancestors struggled to deliver a nation ruled by laws and justice, instead of by the whims of men. My people gave their blood, sweat and tears to throw off the yoke of the British monarchy and to defeat the ambitions of Hitler, Mussolini and Hirohito in World War II.

And so – even after the Iraq war, and the destruction of New Orleans, and the spying and torture scandals, and the vote fraud, and 9/11 and all of the other false flag attacks carried out by by the government over the years - I am willing to pledge my allegiance to the United States of America. Because - as sick and twisted and amoral as she may have become in recent years - I still hold out hope that we may again decide to get back to the great work at hand, the “grand experiment” of self-government and democracy.

The Elephant in the Room

There is an elephant in the room of the 9/11 Truth Movement. A few can honestly say they can’t see the elephant. A larger number can clearly see it, but have somehow convinced themselves it is really a piano. Yet the elephant remains. It is big. It is menacing. No one really knows what to do about it. But if we do not deal with the elephant, all our efforts for 9/11 truth may be for naught. Our movement will lose credibility, and will drift into the kind of obsolescence and irrelevance now associated with the theories of JFK’s assassination.

The elephant in the bedroom of the 9/11 Truth Movement is the obvious connection of the attacks with the state of Israel and its fanatical supporters within the United States government, military, and media. A sampling of some of the evidence:

• The Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz reported that the Israeli message service ODIGO broadcast a warning to Jewish employees of the Trade Center on the morning of the attacks.

• The company in charge of security at all the involved airports was an Israeli company called International Consultants for Targeted Security. Its president is Menachem Atzmon.

• The owner of the Trade Center buildings was Larry Silverstein, who is reported to have close relationships with leading Likud party Israelis such as Benjamin Netanyahu.

What Will Be Written in Future History Books?

9/11 truth may be the only issue with the power to stop another false flag attack, ongoing torture of people who know nothing about terrorism, an attack on Iran, the wholesale destruction of the Constitution and the idea of "liberty", and a whole host of other bad things.

On the other hand, how open people are to hearing about 9/11 truth partly depends on how much they trust and believe their government. In turn, that is dependent on what they are hearing about the government's lies about Iraq's WMDs, Saddams' links to 9/11, the government's criminal negligence in dealing with Hurricane Katrina, government spying, torture, and other governmental lies and misdeeds.

So this is a chicken and egg situation, where the more 9/11 truth comes out, the more it slows down the imperialists from doing rotten stuff. And the more people learn about the rotten stuff the government is doing, the more open they are to hearing about 9/11 truth.

This cause-and-effect feedback loop should be working for us: people hear about government lies and misdeeds, so they're more open to 9/11 truth, so they are less blindly supportive of future lies and misdeeds, and so on. But despite this trend, the boys are still going forward with their insane plans -- see, for example, these articles showing that they are planning to dismantle the Constitution (Torture R Us), to keep fighting in Iraq (Bush says "I will not withdraw, even if Laura and Barney are the only ones supporting me"), and to bomb Iran (the ole' October Surprise).

Experts Discuss Contolled Demolition

Numerous experts have stated that the collapse of the world trade centers was, or looked like, controlled demolition:

Many other experts have privately expressed skepticism of the official explanation for why the Trade Centers collapsed. Hopefully, they will also find the courage to come forward publicly.
