While the White House went to great lengths to keep the details of last year’s raid on the Osama bin Laden compound from penetrating the public peripheral, investigators are questioning how much intel the Pentagon passed to hotshots in Hollywood.
Lawmakers say that the May 2011 event that nearly ended the War on Terror was among the most secretive in the history of the CIA, and the Obama administration has since shunned the public from any details pertaining to the plan even after the former al-Qaeda leader’s execution and burial at sea. As skeptics scorned President Obama for his lack of transparency in the process and demanded proof, the White House largely left details of the event and what occurred before and after locked up in Washington.
According to Rep. Peter King (R-NY), insiders in Tinsletown were given the key.

UPI interview with Hamid Gul

The only thing I have read about this strange event that asked the right question was on wsws.org, one of my favorite sites. Alex Lantier wrote on April 29:
How could one of two specially-designed presidential jets be requisitioned for a flight over New York City, where nearly 3,000 were killed in the 9/11 attacks, without the knowledge of the president, the mayor or high-ranking US military officials such as the defense secretary and the joint chiefs of staff? If the official story is indeed true, it raises the question of who is in control of the US military.
The White House internal review published a week later, I think, answers the question: the US military is in control of the US military.

Well I was visited by a young man that I hadn't seen for sometime. He stopped by my place of employment in his military issued apparel and looked in great shape. He was dressed in his Army issue sweater and impeccable pants. As he walked in, I jumped up and shook his hand. The goober looking kid I once knew had now transformed into a man.
His first warning was to not get upset if the FBI contacted me. I looked at him curiously and he said, "Oh its not like that. I used you as a reference so the FBI maybe contacting you."
"Oh ok. I've done that before with a best friend in the Navy when he was issued an advanced security clearance so I know what to expect.", I replied. He said, "Ok, cool, so you won't like freak out." "Naww.", I said.
He walked over to the computer to check out what I was looking at. He pointed to what I was looking at which was a yellow line which was the official 9/11 flight path into the Pentagon. I told him as such and he snickered like what the hell does the 9/11 Commission know? I agreed.
I think there would be a lot less complacency if we were shown the reality of what is transpiring over there. I knew there was a media blackout on showing the blood and gore of war, dead bodies and caskets on TV, but for journalists to be banned from posting their own photos on their own website? Penalties! Gives me chills.
4,000 U.S. Deaths, and a Handful of Images
July 26, 2008, New York Times
(You may be wondering what events in the Korean War have to do with 9/11, but I feel that this story bears some striking similarities to the 9/11 truth movement and shows how cold and calculating the US military is. If you know anyone who says the military or the Government could not be capable of carrying out 9/11 (or inhumane enough) and that nobody in the government is capable of keeping a secret like this hidden, then point them to this article.)
AP IMPACT: US wavered over S. Korean executions
By CHARLES J. HANLEY and JAE-SOON CHANG, Associated Press WritersSun Jul 6, 1:42 PM ET
The American colonel, troubled by what he was hearing, tried to stall at first. But the declassified record shows he finally told his South Korean counterpart it "would be permitted" to machine-gun 3,500 political prisoners, to keep them from joining approaching enemy forces.
This sensitive US military counter-insurgency manual could be described as "What we learned about running death squads and propping up corrupt government in Latin America and how to apply it to other places". Its contents are both history defining for Latin America and, given the continued role of US Force in the suppression of insurgencies and guerilla movements, history making.
US Army Field Manual FM 31-20-3, Foreign Internal Defense Tactics Techniques and Procedures for Special Forces; Headquarters, Department of the Army, Washinton, DC. 2004 edition. Made US Army doctrine (policy) on 20 September 1994; 219 printed pages. Verified by Wikileaks editorial board. Since the manual is US Army doctrine there are also public references to the title and tables of content elsewhere.
Example extracts follow. Note that the manual is 219 pages and contains substantial material throughout, including technical and procedural descriptions which have not been presented here.

Don't know about anyone else, but if I was still serving(yeah, I'm a veteran--no, I was not a colonel) I'd want to support a grass roots movement that had at it's heart the goal of stopping wars and thus reducing the chance my arms and legs might get blown off in combat.
HR 1585 which is the 2008 Defense Authorization Bill is an evil piece of legislation that actually gives authorization to the U.S. military to plan a future merger with the police that will be used during a catastrophic emergency. This bill authorizes the Department of Defense to design a plan for a martial law apparatus. There is no question that the U.S. government is seeking to ratchet up the militarized police state as they anticipate massive resistance to the coming collapse of our economy and war with Iran. This bill is yet another step in the direction for the implementation of a militarized police state in this country.
Section 1615 of the bill describes the determination of department of defense civil support requirements. Subsection (a) states the following regarding the determination of requirements.
SEC. 1615. DETERMINATION OF DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE CIVIL SUPPORT REQUIREMENTS.

An Open Letter to the New Generation of Military Officers Serving and Protecting Our Nation
By Dr. Robert M. Bowman, Lt. Col., USAF, ret., National Commander, The Patriots
"Our oath of office is to "protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic." Might I suggest that this includes a rogue president and vice-president? Certainly we are bound to carry out the legal orders of our superiors. But the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) which binds all of us enshrines the Nuremberg Principles which this country established after World War II (which you are too young to remember). One of those Nuremberg Principles says that we in the military have not only the right, but also the DUTY to refuse an illegal order. It was on this basis that we executed Nazi officers who were "only carrying out their orders."
Wes Clark may not be the most popular man around here, but I have a strong hunch that he is central to opening up the US military to 911 awareness. He could be the most sensational whistleblower of all if he chose to tell us more like the story below. I sent it to Alex Jones site after I saw it on Digg , but they didn't print.
Please don't ignore this. We may have only a few days to stop an insane action on the part of the US against Iran. I have been 'led' to this . I can't say how.
''We never finished the investigation of 911 and whether the administration actually misused the intelligence information it had. The evidence seems pretty clear to me.I've seen that for a long time.''

This is an excerpt of Gen. Wesley Clark in a Democracy Now interview with Amy Goodman:
now as it appears US troops are on the way to Iran and with the Rovian October surprise announcement, with the pope traveling to Turkeye under strange circumstances,
and other disturbing facts we all should watch this movie again. Back in 1999, when it was first shown, it may be a little bit far fetched.
But by watching this movie, I have to admit the director was a prophet. The speeches of the president in the movie were the same as G.W. Bush did once for real.
And even the story come true more and more.
So should the end- our last hope to stop the Neocon Fascist Madmen is to tell the military troops that their war is bogus and that their leaders are war criminals,
traitors and constant liars and that all of us support a military revolution, in the name of the constitution and the republic, to stop these bunch of criminals
who could not be stopped otherwise.
Come on you brave soldiers, support the US and get rid off these mass-murdering war criminals. On your shoulder lay the weight of the last hope of our future-
that's my dead earnest. Especially the high ranking officers. I heard the retired generals were threaten not to speak out their dissent anymore.
