Dayton: FAA, NORAD hid 9/11 failures
By Greg Gordon, Star Tribune Washington Bureau Correspondent
July 31, 2004

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sen. Mark Dayton, D-Minn., charged Friday that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) have covered up "catastrophic failures" that left the nation vulnerable during the Sept. 11 hijackings. "For almost three years now, NORAD officials and FAA officials have been able to hide their critical failures that left this country defenseless during two of the worst hours in our history," Dayton declared during a Senate Governmental Affairs Committee hearing. ........................During the hearing, Dayton told leaders of the Sept. 11 commission, that, based on the commission's report, a NORAD chronology made public a week after the attacks was grossly misleading. The chronology said the FAA notified the military's emergency air command of three of the hijackings while those jetliners were still airborne. Dayton cited commission findings that the FAA failed to inform NORAD about three of the planes until after they had crashed. And, he said, a squadron of NORAD fighter planes that was scrambled was
sent east over the Atlantic Ocean and was 150 miles from Washington, D.C., when the third plane struck the Pentagon -- "farther than they were before they took off."

Dayton said NORAD officials "lied to the American people, they lied to Congress and they lied to your 9/11 commission to create a false impression of competence, communication and protection of the American people." He
told Kean and Hamilton that if the commission's report is correct, President Bush "should fire whoever at FAA, at NORAD ... betrayed their public trust by not telling us the truth." Asked about Dayton's allegation, a spokesman for Colorado Springs-based NORAD said, "We stand on our testimony to the commission" and declined to discuss the 2001 chronology. Erin Utzinger, a spokeswoman for Dayton, said the senator "assumes the FAA knew of NORAD's coverup."

911 - Tall Buildings and Tall Tales 
 An Irishman's assesment of Theory
Captain Timo 26 July 2004  
Conspiracy theories are not usually well received except when they relate to the distant past where they are regarded as part and parcel of history or when they form part of an official explanation of recent events. Thus stories of medieval Popes dying at the hands of the surreptitious poisoner are acceptable. Nobody today would deny that Julius Caesar died as a result of a plot, i.e. a conspiracy. But for modern times conspiracy as an explanation does not go down well in most quarters unless that explanation has official sanction. The story of Osama bin Laden and the nineteen hijackers and the nebulous and Will-o'the-wisp organisation called Al Qaeda is such an officially sanctioned and approved conspiracy story. 
We are led to believe bin Laden hidden away in the wilds of Afghanistan, with nothing but a satellite phone to communicate with was able to lead and co-ordinate a daring conspiracy involving multiple hijackings which somehow overcame the air defence systems of the greatest military power in the world and then using these aircraft destroyed two of the worlds tallest buildings by turning the planes into missiles where some of his fanatical followers served as guidance system. Stranger still the black boxes from the planes were never found. Yet the passport of one who was said to be the leader of this deadly expedition, Mohammed Atta, survived the inferno, we are told.  These deadly hijackers had the power to render themselves invisible, apparently. That must be why they did not appear on airport security cameras as they went about their activities. It could have something to do too with why no Arabic names appeared on the passenger lists for the fatal flights.  
These hijackers were even more special. Quite a number of them turned up alive in the Middle East after they had been described in the media as part of the suicidal attack team. That certainly takes some doing. Some had been described as having undergone training at a flying school in Florida. Before they had been pressed into silence their instructors had described their level of accomplishment as very poor. Yet they miraculously morphed into flyers with the skills of trained fighter pilots in time for the big event. A number of the alleged hijackers have been described by acquaintances in the US as "playboy types" who believed themselves working as low level FBI agents. Anyone familiar with the culture of Muslim Arabs will know militant Islamists, and especially those who might be prepared to commit suicide as part of a military operation, keep rigidly to the ascetic behavioural code of their religion. "Playboy types" they could not be. 
Within 24 hours of the events the security authorities were able to solve the great mystery behind what had happened. Whereas just before they had been "clueless", as it were, now the problem was solved. Osama bin Laden and his flying circus were the culprits who appeared like a rabbit out of a hat to be dangled before the media just in time to reap the shock, outrage and anger of America. 
During police investigations in the real world once a case has been cracked and a perpetrator uncovered the progress in the case does not then come to a sudden stop but rather more and more layers of facts and interrelationships are uncovered as lines of evidence are followed up. The way the bin Laden story emerged suddenly fully formed to be paraded before the worlds media has all the appearances of a pre-prepared covert operations cover story. Its sudden appearance recalls the emergence of the doctored Oswald biography which began to be circulated world wide even before Oswald had been charged with the murder of President Kennedy.         
Bizarre also is the question of motive. To have some idea who or what lies behind a mysterious act we must ask ourselves 'who benefits?'. It is hard to make the case Arabs or Muslims benefit from a sequence of events which has brought them invasion, death, destruction and their lands contaminated with the deadly radioactive substance; depleted uranium. Also Israel has been facilitated. It can now construct its wall to hem in and virtually imprison the Palestinians as part of the war on terror.  A case can be made that an anti-Zionist anti-US group might want to provoke a US invasion of the Middle East in order to tie down American forces there in a protracted guerrilla war. The aim would be that America would only be able to disengage after making major concessions regarding Palestine and its military and political presence in the region. The evidence for such a plan or such a group is thin. In any case were US forces tied down in a war in a part of the Middle East with no victory in sight they could 'declare victory' and withdraw. Israel and the Arab client states of the US can survive such a happening.
Before Sept 2001 the Palestinian Intifada enjoyed much sympathy across the world. At a conference in South Africa chaired by Mary Robinson, UN Commissioner for Human Rights, a week before Israel was being condemned as a racist state. The Palestinian cause was gaining converts even within America. Why would Arab activists want to throw away such a political advantage? The reality is that American militarism and Israeli Likudnik extremism have been the real beneficiaries of what happened.  So, when we consider the political and military scenarios, Arab involvement in the great crime looks unlikely. It is hard to imagine a plausible motivation.
Carrying out such an attack required calculation. But those possessing such gifts of calculation would realise such an action played into the hands of their enemies.  
But did not bin Laden admit to ordering and carrying out the attacks?  Actually he sought out a newspaper in Pakistan and in late September 2001 gave an interview where he denied any involvement. There was, of course, the video of poor quality which is said to have been found in Afghanistan which was held up triumphantly before the public as confirmation of his guilt. Both in terms of context and content this 'evidence' reeks of absurdity.  First there is the context. If bin Laden had decided to say he had no involvement then allowing a video to be filmed where he says the opposite makes no sense. He undoes the effect of the Pakistani interview. He could either have had a policy of denying or admitting involvement. He could not have had both. Secondly the content of that video raises more questions than answers. The different scenes do not cohere together in a coherent context. It looks like it has been cobbled together from pieces of archive footage spliced onto the supposedly damning pivotal scenes. The parts where bin Laden allegedly admits responsibility have the picture quality one expects from the computer graphics lab rather than real live footage. The English translation on the film does not match the poor quality Arabic dialogue. 
If bin Laden was not responsible then who was? Let us look at other aspects of the case. The air defence network apparently was stood down for the day. There was foreknowledge in Washington.  Various dignitaries refused to fly on the date in question. Well connected individuals bought put options on the stock of United Airlines and American Airlines through a brokerage run by a former head of CIA. They profited hugely when airline stocks took the inevitable plunge. 
The above matters deserve to be investigated thoroughly by law enforcement officials and by the mainstream media. Nothing has happened. 
Most extraordinary of all is how both WTC towers collapsed uniformly as if subject to controlled demolition. To the TV viewer passively absorbing the scene it seemed natural to assume the collapses were caused by the fires and structural damage sustained. This is how film fools us. We uncritically piece the scenes consecutively set before us into a narrative in our minds without asking if the narrative makes sense in the real physical world. 
The World Trade Centre was built in the early 1970s and was then the tallest building in the world. It was a world renowned symbol of wealth and prestige. Naturally such a structure was built to survive the impact of a jet liner.  The 707 of those days actually had similar fuel capacity to today s 757 or 767. So why did the impacts cause the buildings to collapse?  The simple answer is that there is no reason to believe they did. The buildings were left in tact following the impacts. Burning jet fuel can not reach the temperature necessary to melt the reinforced steel skeleton of tall buildings. There is no record in history of the skeletal structure of a skyscraper collapsing as a result of a fire.    
What we do know is that people in the vicinity reported hearing explosions just before the collapses occurred.  A video film taken from a camera mounted on a tripod trained on the WTC shows a shake as if an explosion was occurring some seconds before the collapse of one of the tall WTC buildings began. 
Weeks after the collapse, the debris of the WTC as it was being removed, was seen to contain segments of smouldering rubble. This is not consistent with the official story. It is, however, perfectly consistent with the use of an explosive substance called thermite to provoke a structural collapse.                 
 All this points to a conspiracy involving one or more intelligence agencies backed up by facilitators from inside administrative government. Behind the guise of the official story lies a  false flag  operation of breath-taking scale.  By a  false flag  operation is meant an operation designed to appear the work of another party or nation so as they might be politically undermined. Too farfetched? For most folks it certainly is. 
However such a reaction is not an outcome of logical reasoning. Those who dismiss the 911 sceptic react with dismissive silence or superficial argument gleaned from TV. There are a number of psychological barriers that hold people off stepping up to the plate and confronting the abundance of evidence that the official version is a mere cover story completely and utterly at variance with reality.   
One is the natural human tendency to behave as part of a hierarchical group. Thus we conform to the norms of a group and accept the authority at the pinnacle of the hierarchy. Without this tendency organised society would not be possible. It is only when the authority makes us feel very uncomfortable or has been superseded by another one that we will question its validity or credibility. So the natural state of human affairs is for individuals to possess a bond of trust and loyalty with higher authority. This predisposes people to trust officialdom. This does not mean they believe all they are told or are utterly deferential. But it does mean that they are ready to give authority the benefit of the doubt more than reason requires.
Another barrier is connected with the widespread superficiality in the public awareness of history. Few realise that almost all of America s wars of the last century or so began with a brazen act of public deception. President Roosevelt had his  this day will live in infamy  speech written before the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbour. The US government engineered a situation where the Japanese would attack and kill thousands of unsuspecting Americans. The Vietnam war began in earnest for the US as a result of the Tonkin Gulf incident in 1965 where a US Navy warship was supposedly attacked by a non-existent North Vietnamese patrol boat. Such is the material used to set America s wars in motion. However since the agony of Vietnam there has been a reluctance to get directly involved in foreign conflicts. Only a traumatic painful shock could rouse the nation from this habit of military reticence. Another Tonkin Gulf  incident  would never do the trick this time. Then, low and behold, out of the blue, just when all seemed lost, on Sept 11, 2001 it happened!  
Another barrier relates to a lack of understanding of how power functions and is constituted in contemporary industrialised societies particularly the US. Elected administrations are just one element in the mosaic of elite power. Corporate and private moneyed interests, public officials civilian and military, secret societies, and that ever watchful piranha on the side of the privileged and powerful; the intelligence community, make up the rest of the picture. Elected-representatives are not the only people with the power to make things happen. Frequently they are merely the puppets of other actors behind the scenes or are merely reacting opportunistically to events they barely understand themselves. 
People also find 911-scepticism hard to accept because it presents them with a deeply corrupt world which makes them feel uncomfortable and fearful and which they would rather not have to accept as real. 
Another part of the official story has passengers making short frantic cell phone calls telling their families what was happening on the  hijacked  planes.  One problem with this is that cell phones do not work from planes flying at altitude. Another is that the calls were not recorded on the computers of the cell phone companies. 
There is no hard evidence that the organisation known as Al Qaeda, as at present widely understood, actually exists. It is, like Frankenstein, like Oswald the Communist sympathiser of the Warren Commission Report, like Goldilocks and the three Bears, like the people who knew for sure  Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction, part of the cast of a story merely and nothing more. 

The best explanation for what happened is that the attack planes of Sept. 11th were flown into the buildings by remote control. The demolition of the WTC complex was achieved by controlled explosion. 
The tragic events make no sense except as an attempt to achieve radical political change. Since then the US has changed completely its stance regarding foreign military engagement. Since then the US has become less free politically thanks to the Patriot act and thanks to a change in attitude towards those with unconventional political views. In the west generally there is a new brutalised mentality which will countenance torture and brutality even on a wide scale. Israel has been able to build its massive wall around Palestinian population centres cutting them off from their hinterlands containing their agricultural and water resources. These walled in areas have effectively been turned into the largest open air prison on the planet while objections within the world community are muted. This is in line with the logic of the War on Terror whereby      
Arabs and Muslims generally are deemed so suspect they are fit for special brutalisation.  
There is a form of 9/11 scepticism which is becoming fashionable and popular which says the attacks happened much as the corporate media say they did except that the Bush administration knew they were to happen and allowed them to take place so as to reap the political rewards.  One might characterise this as the position of officially sanctioned dissidence. You can voice this sort of stuff on mainstream media and even get it broadcast/printed. You get the added bonus of appearing smart and knowing amongst your circle. It is a fashion accessory which will get you noticed without costing you money. So why not go for it?
The problem here is that this is a distraction which leads attention away from the most obvious inconsistencies and absurdities related to the events. This works rather as a distraction worked by a stage magician takes the attention of the audience away from where the real slight of hand is taking place. It distracts attention away from 95 per cent of the most important evidence. Furthermore it focuses attention on areas (e.g. why were air defences stood down?) where key sources of evidence are subject to governmental control.  The sceptic is being led into a pre-prepared evidential cul-de-sac.   
On the internet there are quite a number of fine 9/11 sceptic websites. There are also sites which pretend to be real 9/11 sceptic sites but have the purpose of disseminating disinformation i.e. setting false trails to confuse and mislead.     
Below is a very incomplete list of some of the best genuine 9/11 sceptic sites on the web:

Did the Mossad commit the terrorist acts against the US on 9/11?" (A Debate) 

It is critical for anyone who is really after knowing the truth to consider two of the most significant events involving Americans since the year 2000. (1)The war on terrorism and (2) the attack on Iraq. How did we come to be involved with these events and also how did we go about assessing blame and identifying the culprits? Looking carefully and dispelling the hype pushed on us by an untrustworthy media would expose significant facts. Let's look at the two events briefly:

1. 911 Attacks: The following is from the Globe Intel website:


Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon authorized the leak of sensitive documents which reveal America's spy agencies were warned about a terrorist strike weeks before September 11. Mossad chiefs insist the Israeli spy agency was tracking Osama Bin-Laden's terrorists in America before September 11 and that that the information was passed on to the CIA on Five separate occasions before the attacks on the WTC and Pentagon. As late as August 24, less than two weeks before the attacks, a Mossad warning, confirmed by German intelligence, BND, said that "terrorists plan to hijack commercial aircraft to use as weapons to attack important symbols of American and Israeli culture."

The following is from the September 18, 2001 issue of the Jerusalem Post!


.the Israeli officials specifically warned their counterparts in Washington that "large-scale terrorist attacks on highly visible targets on the American mainland were imminent." They offered no specific information about targets, but they did link the plot to Afghanistan-based terrorist Osama bin Laden, and they told the Americans there were "strong grounds" for suspecting Iraqi involvement.

This was an accusation more than it was a warning. Mossad's pointing the finger to Bin Laden in advance was an attempt to ensure that Bin Laden was blamed for the attack, to pre-empt the finger-pointing. They wanted no other possibilities to be considered. As a result a lock was placed on Bin Laden. Along with Bin Laden they skillfully also pointed to Iraq, an enemy that they wanted to use the goyim to get rid of. Please note that this was reported on September 18, 2001 in an important Israeli newspaper right after 911. Israel took the initiative way back then to lead the Americans on who to blame and who to attack for 911. They already had their spy network in place in the U.S. and were armed with explosives and in all the right places to carry out 911. They were so exact about when and where it was going to take place that none of their people got killed in the WTC, some even received Odigo warnings 2 hours before it happened and others were strategically placed to film and
 celebrate the twin towers destruction. Such fantastic knowledge and details is truly amazing for one who did not plan and execute the act.

2. Iraq:
Israel manipulated western intelligence agencies to attack Iraq. Here is a story about this from the Hebrew Press where an Israeli general admits how his government manipulated the American and British intelligence agencies:


How Israel Manipulated Western Intelligence Agencies
Richard H. Curtiss, Special to Arab News

WASHINGTON, 19 December 2003 - It's no secret that much of the news reported in Israel's Hebrew-language media never reaches the mainstream American press, for the simple reason that items unfavorable to Israel generally are not translated. And, because very few Israelis break this self-imposed censorship, items from the Hebrew press that do appear may be much more newsworthy than their anemic English translations indicate.

It was a bit stunning, therefore, to read an article in Strategic Assessment, the quarterly bulletin issued by the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv University. The report, titled "The War in Iraq: An Intelligence Failure?" was written by Shlomo Brom, a brigadier general in the Israeli Army reserves, and said what no one seems to have dared publish since President George W. Bush decided to wage war on Iraq. Shockingly, it told the full truth about the American and British intelligence "sources" making the case for war.

In fact, according to Brom, these sources were utterly compromised by Israeli intelligence, which made the case for starting the war and kept it going as long as necessary. The retired general described Israel as a "full partner" in US and British intelligence failures that exaggerated Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs in the lead up to the US-led invasion.

In both these examples Israel led American actions on who to blame and who to attack. Can we say it is coincidence that the only nation in the world that is leading us to blindly follow their suggestions in matters of critical importance to the U.S. is Israel? How is it that this small nation has so much power and pull over the mighty U.S.?

This should be of great concern to Americans. We are being led to kill and be killed not as a result of American interests but as a result of being manipulated by a foreign country for their gain. We have been told who did 911, the worst domestic attack on U.S. soil, and also blocked from doing any reasonable investigation to find the true culprits from the available evidence. We have been told that there is proof but after more than 2 years none have been shown to the American public. It is as if Americans don't know anything about frame-ups even though Israel has been guilty of framing Arabs on numerous occasions for actions they commit. Even with Israelis also admitting that they manipulated Americans and Brits to attack Iraq with false intelligence, the average American still remains blind. We are indeed in a very dark period of American history. This is a very sorry state of affairs for us. What is worse is the death and misery our nation has unleashed on millions of innocent Muslims as a result of being manipulated by Israel. Is it any wonder that Jews think so little about the intelligence of gentiles?

9/11 probe?
The joke’s on us

6.7 million Americans are in jail, but Kean panel refused to investigate the crime; worse, alternative explanations fail to convince public that coverup happened

By John Kaminski

In a country that spends billions of dollars on its prisons, babbles incessantly about law and order, and now has 6.7 million of its citizens behind bars, in the case of the greatest crime in its history — the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington — the official panel appointed by the president to investigate this catastrophic caper decided that finding out who really did it was unimportant, and devoted no time to pursuing the matter.


Let me say it again. Every politician in America campaigns using rabid law-and-order, anti-terror rhetoric, and applauds the pathetic fact that the U.S. spends much more money on jails than it does on schools. Putting criminals in jail is a top priority for all aspiring political candidates. Yet when it came to conducting a competent investigation of the greatest crime in American history, the panel, which was appointed by the very thugs who many consider to be the real perpetrators of the entire tragedy, made no effort to find out who the guilty parties actually were. Instead, a seedy group of compromised political functionaries relied on baseless and unsubstantiated fictions by the patrician powermongers who run the U.S., and conducted no real investigation at all.

What is wrong with this picture?

OK, for you TV-ized dullards out there, I'm going to run through this wretched riddle one more time.

Because of the profits now being exploited by conducting legitimate businesses but using prison labor at 11 cents an hour, America's prison population is the largest in the world. The central issue in the upcoming presidential election is national security, and as a result, tens of thousands of innocent people are incarcerated as a result of this consciously constructed paranoid phobia of pre-emptive (and selective) justice.

And yet, the very men who preach these law and order mantras are the same manipulators who ordered the Kean commission NOT to look for the real culprits of 9/11. They were told to declare at the outset of their so-called deliberations that Arabs in caves did it, that there was plenty of evidence, but that this evidence couldn't be revealed because of national security issues.

This contemporary brand of unconstitutional vigilante justice, a result of this very crime, had recently been legalized when the contrived passage of the Patriot Act destroyed virtually all the Constitutional legal protections Americans had previously enjoyed, including the presumption of innocence, the right to a fair trial, the right to confront one's accusers, and the right to a lawyer.

With the basic freedoms Americans have always counted on lying in tiny pieces in a dumpster in Washington, it was easy — it followed naturally — for President Bush and his snide accomplices to command the panel investigating the crime that was used as a pretense to destroy America's legal system to ignore any pursuit of those who might have been involved in the grand 9/11 deception and simply declare, on the basis of so-called evidence that these crooks themselves provided, that they knew who the guilty parties were. And the panel did just that. You have seen its final report. No one is to blame for 9/11. It's no one's fault. Muslims did it. And that’s that.

Tell it to the 6.7 million people in American jails.

Tell them that a majority of Americans accept the silly notion that 19 Arabs took command of four airliners and killed more than 3,000 people, even though no fewer than eight of these 19 alleged mass murders have been found to be alive — content, breathing and happily living in various countries overseas, and yet the FBI brazenly refuses to revise its list of perpetrators. People serving time for identity theft ought to get a big kick of out that one.

Tell the convicted arsonists you find languishing in the American gulag that jetliner fuel (kerosene) fires can completely demolish three steel-frame skyscrapers in a single day, even though it had never happened before in history to even one building. That ought to light up their day.

Especially tell the thousands of Muslims still incarcerated on bogus charges — possibly some of whom have had relatives blown to bits in Iraq for no other reason than profits for Halliburton and Bechtel — that devout Islamic hijackers always go to strip clubs, snort cocaine, and consort with prostitutes shortly before they kill themselves for Allah in a jihad against those whose freedom they hate.

And for those thugs doing time for battery, tell them the story that five desperadoes with boxcutters (BOXCUTTERS, you know, those little utility knives you use to open UPS packages) paralyzed with fear all the passengers on an airliner (on four different planes!) to the point where the timid travelers were willing to give up their lives because of those little blades. Puh-leeze tell them that!

All right. Enough of that. What an indictment of the American educational system that a majority (apparently) has accepted the clumsy lies mouthed by the neocons and now most people believe the hollow report dutifully churned out by the Kean commission. But plenty of investigative analysts brighter than me have already commented on that.

You know what’s turning out to be the real joke? The inept attempts of so-called 9/11 researchers like me to articulately and convincingly rebuke and disprove propaganda that is so blatantly bogus. After almost three years, and despite the profound clumsiness and transparency of the outright lies that have been told about the reasons for war in Afghanistan and Iraq, the so-called 9/11 truth movement has spectacularly failed to convince the American people their government is lying to them about almost everything, especially everything concerning 9/11.

Sure, most of the researchers are as broke as me, and have had to cobble together their facts and refutations while trying to stay alive and support families. And also for sure, too few people have even attempted to ask the right questions, analyze the false stories, or question the obvious coverups like the carting away of the evidence without proper forensic examination.

Absolutely for sure, no one with any serious money has made an attempt to join the 9/11 truth movement, only tens of thousands of little people, who with ten or a hundred bucks at a time have tried to support those trying to ferret out the real story, the actual facts.

Considering the millions being squandered on that superficial and ultimately meaningless Democratic National Convention this week, we could have predicted the outcome — the coverup always wins, because the coverup always has the real money on its side.

But beyond that traditional excuse, and despite dozens of superlative and heroic efforts by mostly unfinanced individuals — and a few Jews willing to put the spotlight on Israel figure valiantly in this group — the effort to convince the public that 9/11 was an inside job has failed. The malignant media mindlock has prevailed.

With the essentially unopposed publication of the Kean coverup report and those who continue to protest the dishonest superficiality of the major parties locked in cages far from the scenes of so-called democratic debate, the game appears to be over with regard to 9/11, and the U.S. can continue on its path to endless war accompanied by the cheers of just about the entire American population, or so the TV wags would tell us.

The 9/11 truth movement must now be content with rented meeting halls in cheap hotels, just down the hall from the JFK group, to discuss their theories and vent their spleens, as truth and justice are left for dead by the side of the road, just like they always have been throughout American history.

Among the things you might want to mention to those occupants of American prisons — a group many of us are likely to join in the coming years if current trends toward suppression of free speech continue — are certain events in the attempt to expose the 9/11 coverup that were curious in the extreme

Convicted embezzlers from Danbury to San Quentin would chuckle at the story about the most famous of 9/11 investigators, Mike Ruppert himself, who says that we should stop looking for the real perpetrators of the greatest crime in American history — the rich psychos who made millions off pre-9/11 stock trades — because they can’t be pursued due to international banking laws which don’t permit revealing their names, and there’s no sense beating our heads against the wall.

Ironically, it was Ruppert’s story that got us started on this path of suspicion, but now he’s saying don’t pursue it because it’s against the law, in spite of the fact that the names of these despicable people — who knew what was going to happen on 9/11 in advance — are most likely to lead us to the real criminals who planned and executed this horror. It seems to me that laws like this — laws that allow criminals to hide behind convenient screens in the name of profit – are simply made to be broken, in the overriding interest of justice. Screw the bankers. They’re the enemies of all humanity.

This isn’t the only flaw in Ruppert’s recent efforts, as he has effectively hijacked a large segment of the 9/11 truth movement into a discussion of peak oil concerns, and his message, often indistinguishable from oil company propaganda, sounds more like an excuse for war than it does an indictment of those waging these unjustifiable wars against innocent countries.

The remainder of the 9/11 truth movement — or at least that part of it that aspires toward serious analysis as opposed to that segment opportunistically trying to acquire political influence — has pretty much split down the middle — between empirical and seemingly provable observations and fantastic analyses of various videos of the tragedies.

Most recently Phil Jayhan’s has issued some astounding assertions about replacement planes with no windows firing missiles at the South Tower just before it hit that has attracted a lot of attention. Jayhan’s offerings are similar to the earlier hologram conclusions offered by The Webfairy, and the topper in this category is Scott Loughrey’s recent articulation of his no-planes theory that asserts 9/11 was all done with mirrors (and explosives in the buildings; that part, nobody I know disagrees with).

It is not my intention to agree or disagree with these highly improbable theories, because I will not pretend to possess the technical expertise in film analysis that they claim to possess. In addition, each of them has made valuable contributions in other aspects of the 9/11 myth debunking that has earned the respect of many. That also goes for a number of people who support their conclusions, particularly Gerard Holmgren and Leonard Spencer, and other very reputable analysts of the collective body of evidence that has been gathered refuting the government’s falsehood-riddled version of what happened on that fateful day.

But it is my intention to say these fanciful speculations have destroyed the 9/11 truth movement, and ruined any opportunity for the public to unite behind a consensus alternative version of what really happened, which is surely not what the government said happened.

The higher goal of disproving the lies we have been told has been betrayed and squandered by those who value the novel shock value of their own suspect pet theories and questionable high-tech revelations.

The real purpose of researching 9/11 is to find out who really did it, and to that end, what was needed was a coherent, consensus description that would convince the public mind to effectively protest and overturn the government’s false story.

With the publication of the Kean report, and its general acceptance by the public, the best chance for discovering the truth about 9/11 has been lost. We have all failed. And everyone loses. Everyone except those who made the big money, the political parasites who profit from suffering and prosecute those merely trying to discover the truth in a world made mad by money and made completely dishonest by fear of telling the truth and standing together against this senseless insanity.

What we have to look forward to because of all this I’d rather not think about right now.
