In the wake of revelations of murderous
deception in the Iraq War carried out by the Bush Administration, more and
more Americans are asking questions regarding the basis for the US “War
Half of New Yorkers believe US leaders had foreknowledge of impending 9-11
attacks and consciously failed to act; 66% call for new probe of unanswered
questions by congress or New York’s Attorney General, see Zogby,
and thousands of Americans have signed a petition
for a new probe.
A poll shows 89%
of CNN Internet users feel this way and over 63%
of Canadians feel similarly. On the 3 year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks
satellite TV viewers thought others, besides Bin Ladin, were behind 9/11.
People worldwide began their own investigations. I especially like Prof.
Steven E. Jones, Mike
David Griffin, Eric Blumrich,
Green and of course this article. Very little if any of the information
in these articles was disclosed by major media outside of Manhattan, although
most of the information contained herein has been fact-checked by multiple newspapers
On September 12, 2005 (4 years after 9/11) the Bush Administration released
a less redacted version of the Kean
Commission Staff Monograph. This report provides some details on the Official
Theory but does not contradict or address the observations brought up in this
article or other 9/11 articles mentioned above.
The Official Conspiracy Theory is Fraudulent and Unbelievable
"The 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon were far more
elaborate, precise and destructive than any of [the] earlier assaults [by
July 22, 2004 The 9/11 Commission Report
The Official Story is 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists, headed by Mohammed Atta, conspired
to hijack 4 planes and fly them into the World Trade Center - South Tower and
North Tower buildings and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.
We are told these 9/11 terrorists were ultimately directed and sponsored by
Osama bin Laden, a wealthy anti-American Saudi businessman who associates with
Taliban drug lords in Afghanistan. However Osama
bin Laden denies any involvement. Furthermore, it appears a confession video
tape, provided by the CIA and broadcast nationwide, is fraudulent, see Fabricated
The day after the attack FBI director Robert Mueller stated: “We have
in the last 24 hours, taken the passenger manifests ... and have successfully,
I believe, identified many of the hijackers on each of the four flights that
went down.” However amazingly the Bush Administration decided on the day
of the attack that Bin
Laden was to take the blame and ABC News began reporting it as such by 11
AM on 9/11. This is more amazing given that very little is known about the 9/11
terrorists other than they recently entered the U.S. as students and took some
flying lessons. In fact there are still numerous
discrepencies as to which hijackers are alive or dead.
After many years, very little evidence linking Bin Laden to 9/11 has surfaced
and a great deal of controversy surrounding US involvement in the creation of
the al Qaeda terrorist network, see Janes.com
The Bush administration also stated their belief that cells of Al-Qaeda existed
in Iraq and since Iraq has “weapons of mass destruction” and is
a “gathering threat to the U.S.”, the U.S. needs to, as a last resort,
pre-emptively invade Iraq. All these beliefs turned out to be without basis
in fact and the conclusions were outrageous lies.
For more on the Official Conspiracy
Theory, see the recently released Kean
Commission Staff Monograph.
Pentagon impact not a Boeing 757 (AA flight 77)
The various eye witness accounts have suffered from interpretation errors
and changing stories, see Gerard
Holmgren. Luckily the Pentagon is a military installation surrounded by
numerous live video cameras which should have definitively recorded the approaching
airspace intruder/target. In fact, the Sheraton National Hotel, the Nexcomm/Citgo
gas station and the Virginia Department of Transportation cameras had bird’s
eye views of what would have hit the Pentagon. The public video tapes were confiscated
by government officials and no video tape has been released to the public that
conclusively shows what hit the Pentagon. The FBI claims it has reviewed 84
videos that showed no Flight 77 impact.
The TV media primarily showed us pictures after the outer wall of the Pentagon
collapsed some 20 minutes after initial impact. Here is a picture of
the Pentagon’s final damage: .
Here is a picture prior to the outer wall collapse:
Later photos show the initial impact caused an approx. 16 foot hole
near the bottom of the 5-story Pentagon outer wall with no visible Boeing 757
plane wreckage on the lawn of the Pentagon:
According to a collision simulation performed at cs.purdue.edu, a Boeing
757 fuselage travelling at 545 MPH could liquefy on impact and disappear into
the entry point. However the study did not address how a 124 foot wide Boeing
757 could disappear into the 16-foot hole: .
None of the Atta terrorists were considered good pilots, see amateurs. How
can suicidal amateur pilots “precision fly” a Boeing 757 to hit
the 5-story Pentagon, so close to the ground, going at 545 MPH?
Although some plane wreckage
parts were displayed, they were not large enough for a Boeing 757.
For a Flash presentation with more information, see
Fire did not collapse steel World Trade Center towers
The official National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) story is that the impact scrapped
off fireproofing from the massive steel beams of the WTC tower(s) and the subsequent
office fires softened the steel enough to initiate their collapse. The NIST
analysis does not produce a simulation or visualization of the collapses or
explain how the steel beams gave way, unilaterally and simultaneously throughout
the gigantic structures, pulverized concrete in mid-air, and caused total destruction
at nearly freefall speeds in a virtually symmetric collapse.
Similar office tower fires in Philadelphia in 1991 and Madrid in 2005 did not
bring down those buildings and in earthquake situations, steel towers have toppeled
over but never pulverized, see research by Prof.
Steven E. Jones.
Large quantities of iron or steel were found beneath the towers still
molten weeks after 911:
The temperature-induced coloration of this molten metal indicates 1450oF
to 1975oF (790oC to 1080oC).
Many scientists and engineers have stated that jet fuel and the resulting office
fires at the WTCs cannot come close to generating these air temperatures or
to heat the enormous steel beams to these temperatures, see Scientific
community1, Scientific community2
and Scholars for 911 Truth.
The enormous steel frame and center beams dissipate heat throughout the structure,
see image of steel frame during 1966-1972 construction:
Nearly a year after 9/11/01 an audio tape of firefighter
communications was finally released to the public. No firefighters reported
out of control fires. In fact, firefighters reported they were eyewitnesses
to fact much of the fire caused by burning jet fuel had by then largely burned
out and indicated that conditions were controllable. See also
video footage of firefighter conversations.
The Kean Commission
Staff Monograph has revealed that the commercial jetliners could be programmed
to fly automatically to the World Trade Centers, however only with the aide
of secret entry codes. If this is how the planes were guided, it appears only
an insider could have provided these entry codes to the terrorists.
Close US Gov Ties with Terrorists
According to published and confirmed mainstream reports Mohammed Atta, whom
the Pentagon had knowledge
of in the middle of 2000, was wired $100,000 by the Pakistani intelligence agency,
the ISI, just prior to the attacks. The man who approved this wire, General
Ahmad was meeting with top officials of the US government, including Intelligence
Committee Chairmen Porter Goss (R-FL) and Senator Bob Graham (D-FL) on the morning
of the 9/11 attacks. The FBI confirmed on ABC News (This Week, September 30,
2001) that the payment had come from banks in Pakistan. Amidst the scandal that
linked him to the payment, ISI director-general Lt-Gen Mahmud Ahmad was retired
early by Pakistan’s Military Dictator Musharraf, see Pakistan's
ISI, FBI pressures resignation,
Ahmad background, Scoop,
of Ahmad's ISI agent, ABCNEWS
summary and Pakistan
harbors Bin Laden just before 9/11/01 .
The Bush family has close
ties to the Bin Laden family through their shared business concerns in the
Carlyle Group, the 11th largest US defense contractor. The Bush administration
was accused of interfering with the FBI investigation of a brother of Osama
in U.S. custody who had suspected dealings with Al-Qaeda and allowing him to
escape the U.S., but yet detaining thousands of other Arab Americans in Guantanamo
Bay. Senator Kerry also accused Bush of outsourcing the capture of Osama Bin
Laden and as a result allowing Osama to escape when he was cornered in Tora
Bora, see escape1 and escape2.
To this day, neither Saudi Arabia nor Pakistan have been placed on the list
of countries sponsoring terrorism. To the contrary, subsequent to 9/11,
Pakistan received Billions in aide from the Bush Administration including the
sale of F-16 fighter aircraft, see
Pakistan1 and Pakistan2.
Intelligence was tipped that Osama Bin Laden was preparing to possibly crash
a plane loaded with explosives into George W. Bush’s hotel at the July
2001 Summit of G-8 nations in Genoa, Italy. In response the organizers of the
G-8 Summit installed anti-aircraft
batteries. In spite of a subsequent memo, “Bin Laden Determined to
Strike in U.S.”, neither New York nor the Pentagon had functioning anti-aircraft
weapons. The New York Times confirmed that the Whitehouse was warned by numerous
foreign agencies and allies that an attack
stated: “Immediately following the first attack, I implemented our
government’s emergency response plans.”
Somehow his emergency response plans allowed for Bush and his secret service(!)
to continue on to a classroom visit in Sarasota Florida without fear of being
the next target or interest in being involved in our defense.
Obstruction of Justice
The White House was often cited as having attempted to block the release of
information to the commission and for refusing to give interviews without tight
conditions attached, see something-to-hide1
While Bush and Cheney did ultimately agree to testify, they did so only under
the conditions that they would not testify under oath and there would not be
any transcription for the record or any publicly available record of what they
The Bush administration to this day has not publicly released the FBI report
or CIA report on the government failures of 9/11, nor the flight recorders of
the 9/11 planes, nor the security tapes of the Pentagon crash. It was recently
revealed that the Pentagon
had knowledge of Atta's US-based Al-Quada cell in the middle of 2000 and
subsequently covered it up from the 9/11 commission.
The Bush administration first tried to appoint Henry Kissinger (who was recently
exposed to have been involved in overthrowing Chile’s president Allende
and the subsequent cover-up) as the head of the 9/11 commission. After great
outrage from the families of the 9/11 victims, Kissinger
resigned. Bush then appointed the "bi-partisan"
and "pro-Bush" Kean commission which presumed the Bush administration’s
story instead of independently solving the crime.
The White House have been accused of attempting to derail the commission further
by giving it one of the smallest independent commission funding levels in recent
history ( $3
million) and by starting the commission’s investigation 441
days after the tragedy and releasing most details 4 years after 9/11! Most
of the physical evidence was quickly secured, removed
and recycled, and therefore not available for independent investigation.
The Bush Administration are also defendants in a RICO lawsuit filed by some
of the victims of the 9/11 disaster, see RICO1
The prosecutors have stated an obvious conflict of interest for the President
to have any involvement in the creation or outcome of a 9/11 investigation.
Means: Deliberate weakening of US Air Defenses
"...none of the measures adopted by the U.S. government from 1998 to
2001 disturbed or even delayed the progress of the al Qaeda plot."
July 22, 2004 The 9/11 Commission Report
The Bush administration’s 9/11 story has changed numerous times ( Bush
falsehoods on 9/11) prior to the release of the 9/11 Commission Report.
US Air Defense Interceptors Fail
"Existing [FAA and NORAD] protocols on 9/11 were unsuited in every respect
for an attack in which hijacked planes were used as weapons."
July 22, 2004 The 9/11 Commission Report
The Bush administration claimed there were no pre-existing Air Defenses to
prevent 9/11 and that subsequent to 9/11, the FAA got their procedures figured
out and NORAD got better funding, see US
Air Defense post-9/11.
This flies in the face of actual FAA standing operating procedures: FAA
Emergency Situations, FAA
Emergency Determinations, FAA
Air Defense Liaison Officers, FAA
Escort of Hijacked Aircraft and Aircraft
Piracy (Hijacking) and Destruction of Derelict Airborne Objects.
The summary of these procedures is simply as follows: All commercial flights
must log their flight plans with the FAA prior to departure. If a commercial
airliner is off course by 2 miles or out of contact for 10 minutes, FAA contacts
NORAD to automatically scramble fighter aircraft to intercept.
The Air Guard has a mandate to intercept wayward planes independent of the
FAA, see Pre-9/11
Air National Guard Mission Statement. Since G.W. Bush served in the Texas
Air National Guard, he would be intimately familar with these operations.
According to the FAA between 09/00 and 06/01 the standing operating procedure
successfully launched NORAD fighters
on 67 occasions to escort wayward aircraft. The FAA also claims to have
informed NORAD in a timely
manner on 9/11.
Had they followed this procedure on 9/11/01, the first hijacked plane would
have been intercepted before hitting the World Trade Center. Instead fighter
planes were scrambled at 9:24 am, 34 minutes after the third plane veered off
course and headed towards Washington, and after both the first and second towers
were hit. For more on this timeline see: COOP,
or see the succinct Clarity
Flash video presentation.
Prof. David Griffin
has researched the anti-aircraft systems at the Pentagon and reports that they
are designed to automatically shoot down any approaching derelict airborne objects
that are not transmitting a military transponder signal. A year after 9/11,
the Pentagon beefed up their anti-aircraft systems, see Clear
Finally in December 2003, the mainstream press reported that Air Defense procedures
were in place to prevent 9/11, see 9/11
However instead of a reprimand, General Richard Myers, who was in command of
NORAD on 9/11/01, was subsequently promoted to Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff
and the Bush administration continues to this day to deny that 9/11 was preventable
by then-existing procedures and budgets.
"Planes were scrambled, but ineffectively, as they did not know where
to go or what targets they were to intercept."
July 22, 2004 The 9/11 Commission Report
Many Air Defense bases existed
within reach the Pentagon and New York.
Cheney apparently gave the order
to shoot down the fourth hijacked plane between 10:10 and 10:15 am after
the plane had already crashed in Pennsylvania.
Alternatively, Robert Ayling, a former boss of British Airways, suggested that
[jumbo 757] aircraft
could have been commandeered from the ground and controlled remotely in
the event of a hijack. The 9/11 Commission Report does not talk about what happened
to this option.
September 11, 2001 (War games Day!)
"In pursuing our mandate, we have reviewed more than 2.5 million pages
of documents and interviewed more than 1,200 individuals in ten countries.
This included nearly every senior official from the current and previous administrations
who had responsibility for topics covered in our mandate... From the outset,
we have been committed to share as much of our investigation as we can with
the American people."
July 22, 2004 The 9/11 Commission Report
The 9/11 Commission Report did not reveal anything about war games occurring
on September 11, 2001. However National
Reconnaissance Office scheduled an exercise drill on September 11, 2001
in which an errant aircraft crashes into one of its buildings. On the morning
of the real 9/11 attacks! Associated
Press got this story from a 2002 Homeland Security Conference held in Chicago.
NORAD had regularly
simulated a hijacked airliner crashing into a building and believes it is
part of their responsibility to defend against these situations.
In fact during the morning of 9/11 four U.S. sponsored war games were taking
place, some involving “live-fly” exercises where actual
aircraft were simulating the behavior of hijacked airliners in real life.
Was this what paralyzed the FAA, NORAD and the Air Defense fighter pilots?
General Myers said to the contrary the exercises enhanced our response:
Sec. of Defense Rumsfeld in House Hearing on FY06 Dept. of Defense
Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-GA): The question was,
we had four war games going on September 11th, and the question that I tried
to pose before the Secretary had to go to lunch was whether or not the activities
of the four war games going on September 11th actually impaired our ability
to respond to the attacks.
Gen. Richard Myers: The answer to the question is no,
it did not impair our response, in fact General Eberhart who was in the
command of the North American Aerospace Defense Command as he testified
in front of the 9/11 Commission I believe - I believe he told them that
it enhanced our ability to respond, given that NORAD didn’t have the
overall responsibility for responding to the attacks that day. That was
an FAA responsibility. But they were two CPXs; there was one Department
of Justice exercise that didn’t have anything to do with the other
three; and there was an actual operation ongoing because there was some
Russian bomber activity up near Alaska. So we -
Cynthia McKinney: Let me ask you this, then: who was
in charge of managing those war games?
Chairman Hunter (R-CA): General, why don’t you
give the best answer that you can here in a short a period of time and we’ll
- the gentle lady wants to get a written answer anyway, and then we can
move on to other folks.
General Myers: The important thing to realize is that
North American Aerospace Defense Command was responsible. These are command
post exercises; what that means is that all the battle positions that are
normally not filled are indeed filled; so it was an easy transition from
an exercise into a real world situation. It actually enhanced the response;
otherwise, it would take somewhere between 30 minutes and a couple of hours
to fill those positions, those battle stations, with the right staff officers.

Hearing Video and Transcript. You can also see this questioning from C-span.

These exercises very much contradict Condoleezza
Rice's testimony that nobody could have imagined using planes as missiles.
Furthermore, US defense department insider Timothy McNiven has testified with
a lie detector that the exact
9/11 scenario as it occurred in New York was devised by the US government
in 1976 at the request of the Congress for the purpose of strengthing our defenses
against such an attack.
Motive - "It's the Money, Honey!"
Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit
9/11 movie and reader have made convincing arguments showing how Bush’s
“War on Terror” had the benefit of US control of oil in Iraq and
the US ownership of an oil pipeline through Afghanistan.
Launching these wars has also helped justify the $420
Billion and growing annual budgets of the Pentagon and the approximately
$80 Billion supplemental war appropriations each year. Companies like Halliburton,
Kellog Brown and Root and all the defense contractors including the Carlyle
Group are “making a killing”.
There are also interesting arguments to show US Government involvement in the
Drug Trade, similar to the Iran-Contra affair: CIA-ISI
Drug connection and Guns-Oil-Drugs
Bush Government Signatories on World Domination Agenda
Project for the New American Century (PNAC) is a neo-conservative think-tank
that promotes an ideology of total U.S. world domination through the use of
force. The group embraces and disseminates an ideology of faith in force, U.S.
supremacy, and rejection of the rule of law in international affairs.
The group’s core ideas are expressed in a September 2000 report produced
for Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Jeb Bush, and Lewis Libby
America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century. The
Sunday Herald referred to the report as a “blueprint for U.S. world domination.”
PNAC’s membership includes people such as Richard Perle, Elliot Abrams,
Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, and William Kristol. See Old
American Century for more details.
It is also evident that most of the Kean
Commission recommendations fit nicely into the Joint
Military Vision for 2020 which inturn fits nicely into the PNAC plan.
Historical Precedent for Attacking Own Country Prior to Invasion
Proponents of this theory often point to historical precedents, in which governments
have allegedly planned to use tragedy in order to gain support for unpopular
policies. Jones and others draw parallels between these precedents and the use
of 9/11 to justify the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Great fire of Rome, in 64 AD, which some historians believe to have been
set by then emperor Nero, so as to have a pretext to persecute the Christian
The Reichstag fire of 1933 is widely believed to have been started by the
Nazis in order to garner popular support. Definitive proof of direct responsibility
by the Nazis has yet to be discovered, but many feel that they are the most
likely the guilty party, based on motive, circumstantial evidence, other murderous
deception carried out by the Nazis, and the lack of credible evidence against
Pearl Harbor, which is referred to by the Project for the New American Century
as a prototypical "Catalyzing
Event" seen as necessary to the “process of transformation”
of the US into a stronger worldwide power. Robert Stinnet, in his popular
book “Day of Deceit”, presents evidence that the US government
had advance knowledge of that attack, which propelled the nation into World
The Operation Northwoods documents, drafted by members of the US government
in the 1960’s (recently released under the Freedom of Information Act),
include recommendations to
destroy an unmanned drone and claim that it was a commercial plane “full
of college students off on a holiday,” in order to align public opinion
Allegedly “unprovoked” attacks, which the North Vietnamese allegedly
carried out on U.S. naval vessels in 1964 in the Gulf of Tonkin incident were
used by Lyndon Johnson to convince the U.S. Congress to pass the Gulf of Tonkin
resolution, which led to the escalation of U.S. military involvement in Vietnam.
Squadron commander James Stockdale, who was flying air cover above the vessels
at the time, says that no
North Vietnamese attack occurred at all.

The defense would not like to present any new information on the grounds that
it might jeapordize national security.
The defense would like to point out that the prosecution cannot explain all
the details of how the defense supposedly committed the crime. In other words
they have no idea as to who did what, when and how. The lack of these details
should create reasonable doubt in the minds of the readers. You wouldn’t

From the above disclosures, the Bush Administration must have approved of
the attacks on the WTC and Pentagon on 9/11/01, and without whose assistance
the attacks would not have been possible. Atta and company were co-conspirators
and officially took the blame. This conclusion is based on an overwhelming set
of otherwise unlikely coincidences. In the author’s opinion this theory
is proved beyond a reasonable doubt. However if the reader does not feel so,
