“If a mandarinate ruled America, the recruiting committee on September 11 would have had to find someone like Cheney.” Washington Post author Barton Gellman in his book “Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency”
Terrorism. Emergency plans. Political careers. The history of 9/11 can be written from many angles.
But whatever point of view is chosen, Dick Cheney is a central figure. “Principle is okay up to a certain point”, he once said, “but principle doesn´t do any good if you lose the nomination”. He´s surely an elusive character. Not less than Donald Rumsfeld, his close companion. Both of their lifes are inseperably bound with a dark side of recent American history. The core of the following story was originally told by the authors James Mann and Peter Dale Scott whose thorough research is deeply appreciated. Yet a lot of background information was added. Thus a bigger picture slowly took shape, showing a plan and its actors …
New 9/11 Timeline Entries: Hijacking Exercises, Air Force One's Movements, Laura Bush on Sept. 11, and More
From the History Commons Groups blog:
A large number of entries have been added to the Complete 9/11 Timeline at History Commons, most off which provide new details about the events of the day of September 11, 2001.
One new timeline entry describes a training exercise based on the scenario of a possible terrorist attack that was run on the morning of September 11 by the US Coast Guard in Tampa Bay, Florida, quite close to Sarasota, where the president was at the time. Another entry deals with a meeting scheduled to take place at the Pentagon that morning, regarding a planned "disaster exercise" at the nearby Navy Annex building.
An entry reveals that a number of FBI agents had, for reasons that are unknown, already arrived at the Navy Annex when the Pentagon was hit. Later on, the Navy set up a new command center at the Navy Annex, after its original command center was destroyed in the Pentagon attack.
Several entries describe the futile attempts of intelligence officers at NORAD's Northeast Air Defense Sector (NEADS) to obtain information about the first hijacking. After learning of the hijacking, a NEADS intelligence officer called the FBI's Strategic Information and Operations Center and the National Military Joint Intelligence Center at the Pentagon, but neither of them could provide any information. Searches on the SIPRNET--the US military Internet system--also revealed nothing. Furthermore, the threat briefing at NEADS that morning had included no indication of an increase in the terrorist threat level.
Some NEADS personnel have said they were monitoring Flight 93 long before the time at which the 9/11 Commission concluded the military was first alerted to this hijacked aircraft. Also, a commander at NEADS complained that an officer from the NEADS battle cab had come down to the operations floor, where he had been "circumventing my system." What is more, NEADS personnel only learned that the president's plane, Air Force One, was airborne about half an hour after it took off from Sarasota.
Some persons have dodged truth movement problems by exaggerating the amount of scientific expertise needed to ponder them. Even in relatively advanced truth movement products are problems (for the media and government) that are found via simple methods, e.g. just reading the official reports. Lets consider naming explicitly varied categories of problems according to how simple were the methods used to see them.
Metallurgical Examination of WTC Steel Suggests Explosives
Although virtually all of the structural steel from the Twin Towers and Building 7 was removed and destroyed, preventing forensic analysis, FEMA's volunteer investigators did manage to perform "limited metallurgical examination" of some of the steel before it was recycled. Their observations, including numerous micrographs, are recorded in Appendix C of the WTC Building Performance Study. Prior to the release of FEMA's report, a fire protection engineer and two science professors published a brief report in JOM disclosing some of this evidence. 1
The results of the examination are striking. They reveal a phenomenon never before observed in building fires: eutectic reactions, which caused "intergranular melting capable of turning a solid steel girder into Swiss cheese." The New York Times described this as "perhaps the deepest mystery uncovered in the investigation." 2 WPI provides a graphic summary of the phenomenon.
NaturalNews.com has an opinion piece Mon. Oct. 26, 2009, about Obama's declaration of a national emergency in response to a "pandemic."
"What are these people not telling us?
"Something doesn't add up here. Why would the U.S. government need to declare a national emergency to enable hospitals to handle a flood of sick people when there is no flood of sick people (and the pandemic seems to be fizzling out)?
"This is more like the kind of preparation you might expect in advance of a biological terrorism attack, not for a flu that appears no more dangerous than the seasonal sniffles."

9/11 FEMA VIDEOGRAPHER BLOWS THE WHISTLE
By Allen L Roland (about the author) Page 1 of 1 page(s)
Slowly but surely the pieces are falling into place on the most treasonous act in American History ~ the 9/11 false flag operation which most likely implicatesGeorge Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice and other high level White House officials: Allen L Roland
"False flag terrorism" occurs when elements within a government stage a secret operation whereby government forces pretend to be a targeted enemy while attacking their own forces or people. The attack is then falsely blamed on the enemy in order to justify going to war against that enemy. Or as Wikipedia defines it: " False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as if they are being carried out by other entities.."
As official videographer for the U.S. government, Kurt Sonnenfeld was detailed to Ground Zero on September 11, 2001, where he spent one month filming 29 tapes: "What I saw at certain moments and in certain places ... is very disturbing!" He never handed them over to the authorities and has been persecuted ever since. Kurt Sonnenfeld lives in exile in Argentina, where he wrote "El Perseguido" ( The Persecuted ).
I am sure his 'disturbing findings' included Molten steeland traces of thermite that we know were found after the collapse, providing more proof that thermite explosive charges were used. (Thermite is the only substance that could melt steel ) His recently-published book tells the story of his unending nightmare and drives another nail into the coffin of the government's official account of the 9/11 events and increases the likelihood that 9/11 was a false flag operation.
FEMA photographer Kurt Sonnenfeld (recently interviewed by Voltairenet) has released a new set of World Trade Center disaster site images. Some were previously available, but the majority are new and high quality.
This video consists of a several clips from from Fox News featuring Glenn Beck. In the first part he makes some very disturbing claims about the reality of FEMA detainment camps and the possiblity of a totalitarian takeover of the United States with the imposition of martial law. In the next segment he completely reverses his position, saying that the information was not properly researched, despite having claimed earlier that his team had spent days researching and "could not debunk it".
October 8, 2008
WMR has learned from knowledgeable Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) sources that the Bush administration is putting the final touches on a plan that would see martial law declared in the United States with various scenarios anticipated as triggers. The triggers include a continuing economic collapse with massive social unrest, bank closures resulting in violence against financial institutions, and another fraudulent presidential election that would result in rioting in major cities and campuses around the country.
In addition, Army Corps of Engineer sources report that the assignment of the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team (BCT) to the Northern Command’s U.S. Army North is to augment FEMA and federal law enforcement in the imposition of traffic controls, crowd control, curfews, enhanced border and port security, and neighborhood patrols in the event a national emergency being declared. The BCT was assigned to duties in Iraq before being assigned to the Northern Command.
NIST Concludes "Fire" Caused WTC 7 “Collapse” when FEMA Report Concluded Fuel Tank Explosion had "low probability”

This is Katy from WeAreChangeLA. Last night I received my second e-mail from a supplier of long term storable emergency food products. This is the second time in a month that he has put up the red flag that "something's up." Here is the text of his e-mail:
Feds ARE Buying Up Storable Foods
We got a confirmation yesterday about the feds buying up storable foods. One of our customer's brother
works for FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) and he told him that, indeed, the feds ARE buying
up storable foods. (They've directed suppliers to keep it on the QT.)
Folks, as we said on our site, and in the WorldNetDaily article, something's up! If you didn't see the
WorldNetDaily article, it's here:
Please pass that link around so we can try to wake more Americans up. The more people who are prepared,
the fewer who will come after your stores....
(This excerpt is from an anonymous comment posted at the CommonDreams website. If a secret program like Godzilla exists, it would certainly explain a lot of things, but we really need a statement under oath, IMO. -rep.)
"The result was a secret program called Godzilla. This program is in part a secret building code by the terms of which structures deemed of concern must submit a plan for demolition that FEMA keeps on file. Planned buildings over a certain height must submit a demolition plan along with a construction plan and the construction plan must include facilities and features within the structure and machinery for the potential installation of demolition explosives."
This article isn't really new for anyone who's read the Fourteen Points letter and my previous posts; i created this as an overview of some of the points and the issues, both for people who are seeking info, and for activists to use. Also to maintain and expand visibility for the letter; OpEdNews.com is crawled regularly by Google- and i'm still experimenting with keywords, tags and spelling to see what happens with search "alerts" from Google and Yahoo by email; for some reason the PRWeb release from 4/22, which had been in a Google News alert that night, just showed up again today in a News alert.
this should help (I rehashed earlier posts into a press release, posting it here for posterity. Hopefully, this will get picked up as news all over the world. Woe to Google if they don't index it.
Fourteen Points: World Trade Center Destruction Media Visibility Week
A letter has just been published in The Open Civil Engineering Journal published by bentham.org -OCIEJ is a mainstream, peer-reviewed scientific engineering journal. This event is significant because the authors, Dr. Steven E. Jones, Dr. Frank M. Legge, Kevin R. Ryan, Anthony F. Szamboti, James R. Gourley are known for hypothesizing that on 9/11 WTC 1, 2 & 7 were destroyed by controlled demolition. In their open letter they seek to reach agreement on grounds for "productive discussion" on the subject of the destruction of WTC 1, 2 & 7, based on the 14 points outlined in the letter Fourteen Points of Agreement with Official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction, which in turn are based on assertions of fact already made by NIST and FEMA.
Does anyone else besides me think it would be good to keep the “Fourteen Points” Digg Button at the top of 911Blogger all week? Just the Digg Button (or w/ a short blurb), so every new visitor sees it? Say so in Comments.
Thank god i don’t have a job (full time student, come summer I’ll be looking)
As a result of my flexible schedule, today I was able to:
1) Post the Fourteen Points article on IndyMedia.org:
Ontario, CA: http://ontario.indymedia.ca/twiki/bin/view/Ontario/FourteenPointsOfAgree...
DC: http://dc.indymedia.org/mod/comments/update/index.php link's dead?
2) Respond to posts on my OpEdNews.com Diary (thanks to those who posted)
Announcing 9/11 Truth: "14 Points of WTC Destruction" Media Visibility Week
April 16th through April 22nd has been designated the Week of Truth in a concerted effort to break 9/11 Truth into the mainstream dialogue by pushing a book, The Shell Game, by Steve Alten, to the top of the New York Times Bestseller List. Simultaneously, truth is breaking out in other places, the movement, and truth are on the upswing.
April 16th-22nd was designated the ”“Week of Truth” in a concerted grassroots campaign by 9/11 Truth activists to break 9/11 Truth into the national dialogue by pushing a compelling work of fiction, The Shell Game to the top of the New York Times Bestseller list and get the author, Steve Alten, back on national television and radio shows. It might be easier to herd cats than to get a large, diverse, growing movement to focus on any one particular action. The movement is not monolithic and there are distinct disagreements on many aspects of 9/11, although even government officials are finally beginning to come to the consensus that the official 9/11 Report was a massive lie or cover-up and that, there has yet to be a genuine investigation into the crime of the attacks that took place on September 11th 2001.
By happy synchronicity, one of the best spokespeople of the 9/11 Truth Movement, Dr. David Ray Griffin, has also recently published a book- 9/11 Contradictions- An Open Letter to Congress and the Press. The book has been sent to Congressional Representatives, as well as to Senators and succinctly outlines 25 major contradictions within the official story, which together demonstrate that, by definition, a story with so many internal contradictions is an “outrageous” conspiracy theory, which should not be tolerated by honest journalists or public servants. As The Shell Game has moved up on Amazon charts, so has 9/11 Contradictions.
Two papers were accepted for publication out of six submitted to peer-reviewed technical journals after advice to do so from Noam Chomsky
Mathaba.Net - "Fourteen Points of Agreement with Official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction" was published by the Open Civil Engineering Journal on Friday, giving cause to jubilation amongst the many activists who have been seeking recognition of the glaring contradictions and impossibilities of the official version of the September 11, 2001 attacks within the United States of America.
Just this week, I, and I hope everyone else, will be attempting to create more media visibility for Fourteen Points of Agreement with Official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction http://www.bentham-open.org/pages/content.php?TOCIEJ/2008/00000002/00000...
Dr. Steven E. Jones, Dr. Frank M. Legge, Kevin R. Ryan, Anthony F. Szamboti, and James R. Gourley have created an ingenious summary of 14 assertions of fact by NIST and FEMA (that actually contradict their conclusions) that now have to be addressed by the scientific community due to the article's publication in a peer-reviewed civil engineering journal. This is a historic moment, and I am extremely grateful for their consistent efforts.
So, anyway, I'm going to be putting it out there in the world and on the web, and posting updates, new ideas/material as appropriate- please chime in with comments, ideas, links, etc.
I've launched the Digg 9/11 Truth: "14 Points of WTC Destruction" Media Visibility Week with this post over at OpEdNews.com http://www.opednews.com/maxwrite/diarypage.php?did=7091
I just posted this as a diary at OpEdNews.com. If you haven't heard about that site, consider submitting your favorite breaking news links and original writing there as well. Anyone can publish a diary, and if their editor's think it meets the level of an article, it can be headlined and picked up by google news and all the rest. OpEdNews.com gets 600,000 visitors a month, they're around 29,000 on Alexa and well-known journalists and reporters have blogs and submit articles to be published there. They basically allow anyone to say anything we want about anything, which is why it gets so many visitors and participants. The Journal article was Dugg in Science- I put this one in Political News where people interested in political truth issues have a heavier presence; Digg was science/tech oriented when it began, and has evolved by popular demand (and the owners apparently like all the traffic they get- to the point of placating the public's wrath, even at the expense of offending industry and facing possible legal problems- see my comment in Be the Media Revolution http://www.911blogger.com/node/15094 about the HD DVD most-popular post.
Infowars is reporting a Martial Law Training Exercise has begun in three states. (see source, looks like last weekend. -rep.) "Operation Sudden Impact" as it is called is also being reported by ClearChannel owned Eyewitness News Memphis, though they have labelled it a "crime crackdown."
Federal law enforcement agencies co-opted sheriffs offices as well state and local police forces in three states last weekend for a vast round up operation that one sheriff's deputy has described as "martial law training".
Given the military style name "Operation Sudden Impact", the initiative saw officers from six counties rounding up fugitives, conducting traffic checkpoints, climbing on boats on the Mississippi River and doing other "crime-abatement" programs all under the label of "anti-terrorism".
I, together with two other individuals (a Doctor of Political Sciences and a Senior Engineer), yesterday submitted the following to a number of NIST personnel, including lead investigator S. Shyam Shunder, who in 2006 said to New York Magazine "But truthfully, I don't really know. We've had trouble getting a handle on Building No. 7". The contact information used can be found at the end.
The idea was mainly to remind them that there are people who will be looking at their report (if they come up with a report one day) with a critical eye.

Dear NIST investigators,
we undersigned wish to pose a few questions and comments to NIST regarding the still ongoing WTC 7 investigation.
NIST has stated that "no steel was recovered from WTC 7". This is clearly not accurate. FEMA has noted, e.g., that a steel sample from WTC 7 had undergone thinning due to "high temperature corrosion due to a combination of oxidation and sulfidation". FEMA continues: "Evidence of … oxidation and sulfidation with subsequent intergranular melting, was readily visible in the near-surface microstructure." Please see
John MITCHELL Herblay France I have a long list of links to Fema 911 good quality photographs (Pentagon and WTC).. As there are thousands I will put the list in reply to this entry that with a large negative note will be put it in hide. And anyone wishing to consult the list has just to open the reply Yours John

Science Behind the Theory: An Inside Job
By Stephen Demetriou
TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 115 > § 2382
§ 2382. Misprision of treason
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason against them, conceals and does not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President or to some judge of the United States, or to the governor or to some judge or justice of a particular State, is guilty of misprision of treason and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than seven years, or both.
Senator: WTC7's Omission from 9/11 Report is 'Black Helicopter Stuff'
Coleman Refuses New Probe; "I don't think there's a new investigation to 9/11 that's really called for"
Reading 9/11 related forums and articles, I frustratingly often encounter comments from supporters of the "official theory" stating that WTC debris was investigated and that no signs of explosives etc were found. They always fail to mention that no GZ access was allowed for investigation (including FEMA), investigators were only able to scrutinize what was taken to the Freshkills site, obviously we do not know what was NOT taken to Freshkills.
Anyway, this reminded me of the very honest, yet damning article (Jan 2002) written by the editor of "Fire Engineering Magazine" Bill Manning, including the "half baked farce" statement. Below are a few of those quotes :
- To treat the September 11 incident any differently would be the height of stupidity and ignorance. The destruction and removal of evidence must stop immediately.
Dr. Frank Legge has published an excellent article “Conspiracy Theories, Myths, Skepticism, and 9/11: their Impact on Democracy” in the Journal of 9/11 Studies, today. It passed peer review prior to publication.
It begins thus: “Abstract: A discussion of conspiracy theories, myths and skepticism is presented. The importance of skepticism in a society in which myths may be deliberately created by authorities to manipulate the public is stressed. A range of methods of avoiding acceptance of myths, including application of the scientific method, is demonstrated using the events of 9/11. A clear understanding of events, unclouded by myths, is essential for the proper functioning of a democracy.
Key words: conspiracy, myth, skepticism, 9/11, democracy, propaganda, thermite, trans fats, cholesterol, PNAC, NIST, FEMA, EPA, Orwell
In this short documentary-style video, I outline the mathematics and science of WTC7 as it relates to its uniform 6.5 second collapse at 5:20 pm on the evening of September 11th. I also briefly touch upon the government analyses conducted by FEMA and NIST, and I compare the collapse to known controlled demolitions and similar steel structures with fire and/or structural damage. Additional info that the viewer may find applicable is that more than half of the diesel fuel was recovered by the two largest underground storage tanks post-collapse (documented by FEMA), and that fires on the north, west, and east sides of the building did not appear to be out of control. In the intro to the vid, the BBC field reporter mysteriously digitizes out of the conversation minutes before WTC7's collapse, after having prematurely reported its collapse 20 minutes before it occured (with the building standing behind the field reporter in plain sight). Also interesting to note, if the hypothesis of NIST is true, then controlled demolition crews only have to weaken one core column in a skyscraper to perfectly implode it.
At 5:20 p.m. on the evening of September 11th, 2001, the Salomon Brothers Building, also known as 7 World Trade Center (WTC7), the northernmost building on the World Trade Center complex, uniformly collapsed in 6.5 seconds. It produced a rubble pile with a radius similar its original dimensions and approximately seven stories tall .
