CIA obstructed 9/11 investigators: report
Sat Dec 22, 2:20 PM ET
The CIA obstructed an official US investigation into the September 11 attacks by
withholding tapes of interrogations of Al-Qaeda operatives, according to former
investigators quoted in a report on Saturday. A review of documents by former
members of the 9/11 commission revealed the panel made repeated, detailed requests
to the spy agency in 2003 and 2004 for information about the interrogation of
members of the extremist network, but were never notified of the tapes, the New York
Times reported. The review of the commission's correspondence with the Central
Intelligence Agency came after the agency earlier this month revealed it had
destroyed videotapes in 2005 that showed harsh interrogations of two Al-Qaeda
members. The review, written up in a December 13 memo prepared by Philip Zelikow,
the former executive director of the 9/11 commission, said that "further
investigation is needed" to resolve whether the CIA's failure to hand over the tapes
violated federal law. The memorandum does not assert that withholding the tapes was
illegal but states that federal law penalizes anyone who "knowingly and wilfully"
withholds or "covers up" a "material fact" from a federal inquiry, the newspaper
said. The revelation adds to pressure on President George W. Bush's administration,
already under fire over the affair by human rights groups and lawmakers who allege
that destroying the tapes covered up proof of torture. Responding to the New York
Times report, the CIA said the commission never specifically asked for interrogation
videos. CIA spokesman Mark Mansfield told AFP the agency had gone to "great lengths"
to satisfy the panel's requests, and that commission members had been provided with
details from interrogations of detainees. "The 9/11 commission certainly had access
to, and drew from, detailed information that had been provided by terrorist
detainees. That's how they reconstructed the plot in their comprehensive report," he
said. "Because it was thought the commission could ask about tapes at some point,
they were not destroyed while the commission was active." The two chairs of the
commission, former Democratic lawmaker Lee Hamilton and former New Jersey governor
Thomas Kean, told the newspaper the review showed the CIA had actively tried to
impede the panel's work. Kean said the panel would give the memorandum to federal
officials and lawmakers in Congress who are investigating the destruction of the
tapes. Hamilton said the CIA "clearly obstructed" the panel's probe. According to
the memo posted on the New York Times' website, the commission was interested in
interrogations of Al-Qaeda members because it was trying to reconstruct the events
leading up to the attacks of September 11, 2001, on New York and Washington. The
commission made initial general requests for intelligence information from
interrogations, including the two detainees on the destroyed videotapes, Abu
Zubaydah and Abd al-Rashim al-Nashiri, said the memorandum. It followed up with more
requests for "very detailed information" about the context of the interrogations,
the credibility of statements from detainees, the quality of language translation
and other issues. "The commission was dissatisfied with the answers it received to
these questions," Zelikow's memorandum said. None of the officials who communicated
with the panel ever revealed the existence of the videotapes, it said. The CIA
spokesman cited earlier public comments by the 9/11 commission about the spy
agency's cooperation, such as "the CIA provided great assistance" to its
investigation. "The CIA has cooperated fully in making available both the documents
and interviews that we have needed so far on this topic," it said. A senior
intelligence official speaking on condition of anonymity told AFP that news stories
about interrogation techniques had already appeared when the commission made its
final report. "If the commission had wanted to make an issue of how the information
was obtained from the detainees as opposed to what was learned from them, they had
an opportunity to do so at the time," the official said. "They didn't do that."

December 22, 2007 9/11 Panel Study Finds That C.I.A. Withheld Tapes
By MARK MAZZETTI WASHINGTON —
A review of classified documents by former members of the Sept. 11 commission shows that the panel made repeated and detailed requests to the Central Intelligence Agency in 2003 and 2004 for documents and other information about the interrogation of operatives of Al Qaeda, and were told by a top C.I.A. official that the agency had “produced or made available for review” everything that had been requested. The review was conducted earlier this month after the disclosure that in November 2005, the C.I.A. destroyed videotapes documenting the interrogations of two Qaeda operatives. A seven-page memorandum prepared by Philip D. Zelikow, the panel’s former executive director, concluded that “further investigation is needed” to determine whether the C.I.A.’s withholding of the tapes from the commission violated federal law. In interviews this week, the two chairmen of the commission, Lee H. Hamilton and Thomas H. Kean, said their reading of the report had convinced them that the agency had made a conscious decision to impede the Sept. 11 commission’s inquiry. Mr. Kean said the panel would provide the memorandum to the federal prosecutors and congressional investigators who are trying to determine whether the destruction of the tapes or withholding them from the courts and the commission was improper. A C.I.A. spokesman said that the agency had been prepared to give the Sept. 11 commission the interrogation videotapes, but that commission staff members never specifically asked for interrogation videos. The review by Mr. Zelikow does not assert that the commission specifically asked for videotapes, but it quotes from formal requests by the commission to the C.I.A. that sought “documents,” “reports” and “information” related to the interrogations. Mr. Kean, a Republican and a former governor of New Jersey, said of the agency’s decision not to disclose the existence of the videotapes, “I don’t know whether that’s illegal or not, but it’s certainly wrong.” Mr. Hamilton, a former Democratic congressman from Indiana, said that the C.I.A. “clearly obstructed” the commission’s investigation. A copy of the memorandum, dated Dec. 13, was obtained by The New York Times. Among the statements that the memorandum suggests were misleading was an assertion made on June 29, 2004, by John E. McLaughlin, the deputy director of central intelligence, that the C.I.A. “has taken and completed all reasonable steps necessary to find the documents in its possession, custody or control responsive” to formal requests by the commission and “has produced or made available for review” all such documents. Both Mr. Kean and Mr. Hamilton expressed anger after it was revealed this month that the tapes had been destroyed. However, the report by Mr. Zelikow gives them new evidence to buttress their views about the C.I.A.’s actions and is likely to put new pressure on the Bush administration over its handling of the matter. Mr. Zelikow served as counselor to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice from 2005 to the end of 2006. In an interview on Friday, Mr. McLaughlin said that agency officials had always been candid with the commission, and that information from the C.I.A. proved central to their work. “We weren’t playing games with them, and we weren’t holding anything back,” he said. The memorandum recounts a December 2003 meeting between Mr. Kean, Mr. Hamilton and George J. Tenet, then the director of central intelligence. At the meeting, it says, Mr. Hamilton told Mr. Tenet that the C.I.A. should provide all relevant documents “even if the commission had not specifically asked for them.” According to the memorandum, Mr. Tenet responded by alluding to several documents that he thought would be helpful to the commission, but made no mention of existing videotapes of interrogations. The memorandum does not draw any conclusions about whether the withholding of the videotapes was unlawful, but it notes that federal law penalizes anyone who “knowingly and willfully” withholds or “covers up” a “material fact” from a federal inquiry or makes “any materially false statement” to investigators. Mark Mansfield, the C.I.A. spokesman, said that the agency had gone to “great lengths” to meet the commission’s requests, and that commission members had been provided with detailed information obtained from interrogations of agency detainees. “Because it was thought the commission could ask about the tapes at some point, they were not destroyed while the commission was active,” Mr. Mansfield said. Intelligence officials have said the tapes that were destroyed documented hundreds of hours of interrogations during 2002 of Abu Zubaydah and Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri, two Qaeda suspects who were taken into C.I.A. custody that year. According to the memorandum from Mr. Zelikow, the commission’s interest in obtaining accounts from Qaeda detainees in C.I.A. custody grew out of its attempt to reconstruct the events leading up to the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States. Its requests for documents from the C.I.A. began in June 2003, when it first sought intelligence reports describing information obtained from prisoner interrogations, the memorandum said. It later made specific requests for documents, reports and information related to the interrogations of specific prisoners, including Abu Zubaydah and Mr. Nashiri. In December 2003, the commission staff sought permission to interview the prisoners themselves, but was permitted instead to give questions to C.I.A. interrogators, who then posed the questions to the detainees. The commission concluded its work in June 2004, and in its final report, it praised several agencies, including the C.I.A., for their assistance. Abbe D. Lowell, a veteran Washington lawyer who has defended clients accused of making false statements and of contempt of Congress, said the question of whether the agency had broken the law by omitting mention of the videotapes was “pretty complex,” but said he “wouldn’t rule it out.” Because the requests were not subpoenas issued by a court or Congress, C.I.A. officials could not be held in contempt for failing to respond fully, Mr. Lowell said. Apart from that, however, it is a crime to make a false statement "in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative or judicial branch." The Sept. 11 commission received its authority from both the White House and Congress. On Friday, the leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey and to Mike McConnell, the director of national intelligence, asking them to preserve and produce to the committee all remaining video and audio recordings of “enhanced interrogations” of detainees in American custody. Signed by Senator Patrick Leahy, Democrat of Vermont, and Senator Arlen Specter, Republican of Pennsylvania, the letter asked for an extensive search of the White House, C.I.A. and other intelligence agencies to determine whether any other recordings existed of interrogation techniques “including but not limited to waterboarding.” Government officials have said that the videos destroyed in 2005 were the only recordings of interrogations made by C.I.A. operatives, although in September government lawyers notified a federal judge in Virginia that the agency had recently found three audio and video recordings of detainees. Intelligence officials have said that those tapes were not made by the C.I.A., but by foreign intelligence services. Scott Shane contributed reporting. December 22, 2007
Preview the CASE FOR CRIMINAL PROSECUTION:
Furthermore, Osama bin Laden has not admitted to the crime:
“I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States... I had no knowledge of these attacks, nor do I consider the killing of innocent women, children and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children and other people. Such a practice is forbidden even in the course of a battle. It is the United States, which is perpetrating every maltreatment on women, children and common people of other faiths, particularly the followers of Islam…America does not want to see anyone equal to it. It expects slavery from others. Therefore, other countries are either its slaves or subordinates…Whoever committed the act of 11 September are not the friends of the American people. I have already said that we are against the American system, not against its people, whereas in these attacks, the common American people have been killed…The United States should try to trace the perpetrators of these attacks within itself; the people who are a part of the U.S. system…those who are working for some other system; persons who want to make the present century as a century of conflict between Islam and Christianity…They can be anyone, from Russia to Israel and from India to Serbia…Then there are intelligence agencies in the U.S., which require billions of dollars worth of funds from the Congress and the government every year. This [funding issue] was not a big problem till the existence of the former Soviet Union but after that the budget of these agencies has been in danger. They needed an enemy…You see, the Bush Administration approved a budget of 40 billion dollars. Where will this huge amount go? It will be provided to the same agencies, which need huge funds and want to exert their importance. Now they will spend the money for their expansion and for increasing their importance. I will give you an example. Drug smugglers from all over the world are in contact with the U.S. secret agencies. These agencies do not want to eradicate narcotics cultivation and trafficking because their importance will be diminished. The people in the U.S. Drug Enforcement Department are encouraging drug trade so that they could show performance and get millions of dollars worth of budget. General Noriega was made a drug baron by the CIA and, in need, he was made a scapegoat. In the same way, whether it is President Bush or any other U.S. President, they cannot bring Israel to justice for its human rights abuses or to hold it accountable for such crimes. What is this? Is it not that there exists a government within the government in the United Sates? That secret government must be asked as to who carried out the attacks…I have already said that we are not hostile to the United States. We are against the [U.S. Government] system, which makes other nations slaves of the United States, or forces them to mortgage their political and economic freedom. This system is totally in control of the American-Jews, whose first priority is Israel, not the United States. It is clear that the American people are themselves the slaves of the Jews and are forced to live according to the principles and laws laid by them. So, the punishment should reach Israel. In fact, it is Israel, which is giving a blood bath to innocent Muslims and the U.S. is not uttering a single word…The Western media is unleashing such a baseless propaganda, which makes us surprise but it reflects on what is in their hearts and gradually they themselves become captive of this propaganda. They become afraid of it and begin to cause harm to themselves. Terror is the most dreaded weapon in modern age and the Western media is mercilessly using it against its own people. It can add fear and helplessness in the psyche of the people of Europe and the United States. It means that what the enemies of the United States cannot do, its media is doing that. You can understand as to what will be the performance of the nation in a war, which suffers from fear and helplessness..." Osama (agent Osman) bin Laden

Michael Springman: "Well initially I thought that is what it was. There was visa fraud. I had been told by one contact that the price for a visa at the American consulate was the equivalent of $2500 US. But once I got back to the United States, and was out of the foreign service, I ran across a couple of people with ties to the American government, that told me another story; that the CIA was recruiting fighters for the Afghan war against the then Soviets, and that their asset, Osama bin Laden was working with them. They had a recruiting office in Jeddah, they had a recruiting office in Riyadh, and third one somewhere in the Eastern province. And they would send these people to Jeddah, the fifth largest visa issuing post in the Middle East, for visas. They would apparently run these people straight over from their recruiting office over to my visa window. Well obviously, when they were not good solid businessmen, or good upstanding upper class people I would refuse them...They seemed to basically people with no real skills...Afghanistan was the end user of their facilities. My sources told me that they were coming to the United States for training as terrorists."
READ THIS FIRST SMOKING GUN: 9/11 researcher and activist Carol Valentine speculated in 2002 that:
"...Yes, NORAD trigger men, traitors, may have guided the 'suicide jets' on September 11. The dog we bought to guard the hen house may well have taken the day off and killed the chickens..."
That was Carol's speculation; then Major General Larry Arnold confirmed: "...we were able to identify, track and escort suspected hijacked aircraft after the initial attacks...our reaction time outpaced the process in some instances..." Major General Larry Arnold (NORAD) (Then folks - if the Military's efforts 'outpaced' that of the hijackers, how the hell not one craft intercepted?)
CIA August 6, 2001:
"Based on a review of all source reporting over the last five months, we believe that UBL (Usama bin Laden) will launch a significant attack against U.S. and/or Israeli interests in the coming weeks. The attack will be spectacular and designed to inflict mass casualities against U.S. facilities or interests. Attack preparations have been made. Attack will occur with little or no warning." (Now folks, al Qaeda takes John Public for idiot! Firstly, no citizen, writing about an attack against his country would use the word 'spectacular'. The writer was the attacker!)
Now good folks! The above warning was seen by 'Chief Marshall'; sorry Chief Myers. Yet on September 11th when all systems should have been on target, Dick Myers was absent from the NMCC until about 9:30 a.m. His own words: "Nobody informed us [Myself and the Senator] of that [plane striking Tower 2 at WTC]. But when we came out, that was obvious. Then, right at that time, somebody said the Pentagon had been hit."
Folks this is 'thee' court-martial statement! No one informed General Myers that two 'planes' had struck two towers in Manhattan? And, surprisingly, no one in the chain-of-command disciplined as a result? Hah!)
THE SMOKING GUN Captain Karin Deshore:
"Somewhere around the middle...there was this orange and red flash coming out. Initially it was just one flash. Then this flash just kept popping all the way around the building and that building had started to explode...with each popping sound it was initially an orange and then a red flash came out...and then it would just go all around...on both sides as far as I could see. These popping sounds and the explosions were getting bigger; going both up and down and then all around the building." (New York Times) See gif above!!!!!

9-11 Impact Statements, useful to the 9-11 Commission. Whilimena:
We heard that Rudi Giuliani gave impact statements in the Moussaoui case. It would be of great interest to the people of the world, especially relatives and friends of those murdered on 9-11, to ascertain what in the world Rudi could be saying at the Moussaoui trial; considering that the first-responders were not called. And those who volunteered (like Rodriquez) to give testimony elsewhere were rediculed with classic 'JFK Specter' 'Philidelphia' tricks.
It is crystal clear that the impact statements of the first-responders at WTC on September 11, 2001 expressed the view that bombs were going off in the buildings. It is also crystal clear that Osama bin Laden could NOT have planted explosives in the WTC prior 9-11 because of the 'tight' security. Consequently, the Attorney General and District Attorney of New York must empanel a Grand Jury to investigate these numerous claims. It must be carefully noted that a complaint was filed with the said New York law enforcement officials, by citizens of these United States (2004), seeking an investigation into the 9-11 scam. So far, that complaint is sitting idle in File 13. Why? And, do we really know that if it wasn't for The Jersey Girls not even the so-called Commission would have been created to look into the nation's most vicious crime? By the way Poppy Junior mentioned the use of explosives in one of his presentations! "
Those so-called 9-11 Commissioners complaining that 'we should have'. The 9-11 Commission, according to its own website, was: "...an independent, bipartisan commission created by congressional legislation and the signature of President George W Bush in late 2002". The commission is "...chartered to prepare a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, including preparedness for and the immediate response to the attacks". Mark you, this is the same Commission which rediculed witnesses.
IMPACT STATEMENTS- 9-11: “...there was just an explosion.... It seemed like on television, they blow up these buildings. It seemed like it was going all the way around like a belt, all these explosions.”--Firefighter Richard Banaciski
“I saw a flash flash flash - the lower level of the building. You know like when they demolish a building?”--Assistant Fire Commissioner Stephen Gregory
“...it was professional demolition where they set the charges on certain floors and then you hear 'Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop'."--Paramedic Daniel Rivera
"We are Israelis. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are your problem”. Zionists travelling in Van on 9-11 The Guardian:
“...police and fire officials were carrying out the first wave of evacuations when the first of the World Trade Centre towers collapsed. Some eyewitnesses reported hearing another explosion just before the structure crumbled. Police said that it looked almost like a ‘planned implosion.’" Engineer Mike Pecoraro:
“There was nothing there but rubble,” ...“We're talking about a 50 ton hydraulic
press--gone!” ... "like a piece of aluminum foil."
"... The evidence indicates that, at the least, the highest circles in the White House knew a spectacular attack was in the works in the days and weeks preceeding 9/11 -- warnings were coming into the White House from a host of foreign leaders and intelligence agencies -- but chose to do nothing, presumably to make use of those events in the service of their hidden agenda. Similarly, nothing was done as a result of the government's own intelligence warnings..." Bernard Weiner, Ph.D.
Mark Loizeaux, of Controlled Demolition, Inc: “If I were to bring the towers down, I would put explosives in the basement to get the weight of the building to help collapse the structure.” FDNY Captain Dennis Tardio:
"I hear an explosion and I look up. It is as if the building is being imploded, from the top floor down, one after another, boom, boom, boom."
The Ha'aretz article by Sara Leibovich-Dar reveals the "close ties with Netanyahu" that Silverstein has:
"The two have been on friendly terms since Netanyahu's stint as Israel's ambassador to the United Nations. For years they kept in close touch. Every Sunday afternoon, New York time, Netanyahu would call Silverstein. It made no difference what the subject was or where Netanyahu was, he would always call, Silverstein told an Israeli acquaintance," the Israeli newspaper reported.
Firefighter Louie Cacchioli: “...another huge explosion like the first one hits. This one hits about two minutes later . . . I’m thinking, ‘Oh. My God, these bastards put bombs in here like they did in 1993!’ ”
“There were explosions going off everywhere. I was convinced that there were bombs planted all over the place and someone was sitting at a control panel pushing detonator buttons. . . . There was another explosion. And another. I didn't know where to run."
Steve Evans: “I was at the base of the second tower . . . that was hit. . . . There was an explosion. . . . The base of the building shook. . . . [T]hen there was a series of explosions.”
Sue Keane: “[I]t sounded like bombs going off. That's when the explosions happened. . . . I knew something was going to happen. . . . It started to get dark, then all of a sudden there was this massive explosion.” Then, discussing her experiences during the collapse of the north tower, she said: “[There was] another explosion. That sent me and the two firefighters down the stairs. . . . I can't tell you how many times I got banged around. Each one of those explosions picked me up and threw me. . . . There was another explosion, and I got thrown with two firefighters out onto the street.”
Wall Street Journal reporter John Bussey: “I . . . looked up out of the office window to see what seemed like perfectly synchronized explosions coming from each floor. . . . One after the other, from top to bottom, with a fraction of a second between, the floors blew to pieces.”
Another Wall Street Journal reporter: “‘My God, they’re going to bring the building down.’ And they, whoever they are, HAD SET CHARGES. . . . I saw the explosions.”
Beth Fertig of WNYC Radio: “It just descended like a timed explosion-like when they are deliberately bringing a building down. . . . It was coming down so perfectly that in one part of my brain I was thinking...They got everyone out, and they're bringing the building down because they have to.'”
Firefighter Timothy Julian: “First I thought it was an explosion. I thought maybe there was a bomb on the plane, but delayed type of thing, you know secondary device. . . . I just heard like an explosion and then a cracking type of noise, and then it sounded like a freight train, rumbling and picking up speed, and I remember I looked up, and I saw it coming down.”
Emergency medical technician Michael Ober: “[W]e heard a rumble, some twisting metal, we looked up in the air, and . . . it looked to me just like an explosion. It didn’t look like the building was coming down, it looked like just one floor had blown completely outside of it. . . . I didn’t think they were coming down. I just froze and stood there looking at it.”
Chief Frank Cruthers: “There was what appeared to be at first an explosion. It appeared at the very top, simultaneously from all four sides, materials shot out horizontally. And then there seemed to be a momentary delay before you could see the beginning of the collapse."
Paul Curran: “...all of a sudden the ground just started shaking. It felt like a train was running under my feet. . . . The next thing we know, we look up and the tower is collapsing.”
Lieutenant Bradley Mann of the fire department: "Shortly before the first tower came down,” ... “I remember feeling the ground shaking. I heard a terrible noise, and then debris just started flying everywhere. People started running." “...we basically had the same thing: The ground shook again, and we heard another terrible noise and the next thing we knew the second tower was coming down."
Paramedic Kevin Darnowski: "I started walking back up towards Vesey Street. I heard three explosions, and then we heard like groaning and grinding, and tower two started to come down.”
Gregg Brady: “I heard 3 loud explosions. I look up and the north tower is coming down now."
Thomas Turilli: “...it almost sounded like bombs going off, like boom, boom, boom, like seven or eight."
Craig Carlsen: “...heard explosions coming from building two, the south tower. It seemed like it took forever, but there were about ten explosions. . . . We then realized the building started to come down.”
Rumsfeld - interviewed by Lyric Wallwork Winik, Parade Magazine Friday, Oct. 12, 2001.
"Here we're talking about plastic knives and using an American Airlines flight filled with our citizens, and the missile to damage this building and similar (inaudible) that damaged the World Trade Center."
Timothy Burke: “...the building popped, lower than the fire...”
Edward Cachia: “As my officer and I were looking at the south tower, it just gave. It actually gave at a lower floor, not the floor where the plane hit. . . . we originally had thought there was like an internal detonation, explosives, because it went in succession, boom, boom, boom, boom, and then the tower came down.”
Lieutenant James Walsh: "The [north tower] didn't fall the way you would think tall buildings would fall. Pretty much it looked like it imploded on itself."
Assistant Commissioner Stephen Gregory: “I thought . . . before . . . [WTC 2] came down, that I saw low-level flashes. . . . Lieutenant Evangelista . . . asked me if I saw low-level flashes in front of the building, and I agreed with him because I . . . saw a flash flash flash . . . [at] the lower level of the building. You know like when they demolish a building, how when they blow up a building, when it falls down? That's what I thought I saw.”
Captain Karin Deshore: “Somewhere around the middle of the World Trade Center, there was this orange and red flash coming out. Initially it was just one flash.”...“Then this flash just kept popping all the way around the building and that building had started to explode. The popping sound, and with each popping sound it was initially an orange and then a red flash came out of the building and then it would just go all around the building on both sides as far as I could see. These popping sounds and the explosions were getting bigger, going both up and down and then all around the building."
Firefighter Richard Banaciski: “...there was just an explosion. It seemed like on television [when] they blow up these buildings. It seemed like it was going all the way around like a belt, all these explosions.”
Deputy Commissioner Thomas Fitzpatrick: "We looked up at the [south tower] . . . . All we saw was a puff of smoke coming from about 2 thirds of the way up . . . . It looked like sparkling around one specific layer of the building. . . . My initial reaction was that this was exactly the way it looks when they show you those implosions on TV."
Captain Jay Swithers: “I took a quick glance at the building and while I didn't see it falling, I saw a large section of it blasting out, which led me to believe it was just an explosion.”
Firefighter James Curran: “When I got underneath the north bridge I looked back and . . . I heard like every floor went chu-chu-chu. Looked back and from the pressure everything was getting blown out of the floors before it actually collapsed."
Battalion Chief Brian Dixon: “I was . . . hearing a noise and looking up. . . . the lowest floor of fire in the south tower actually looked like someone had planted explosives around it because . . . everything blew out on the one floor. I thought, geez, this looks like an explosion up there, it blew out."
Firefighter Stephen Viola: “You heard like loud booms . . . "
Battalion Chief Dominick DeRubbio: “It was weird how it started to come down. It looked like it was a timed explosion."
Firefighter Kenneth Rogers: "[T]here was an explosion in the south tower. . . . I kept watching. Floor after floor after floor. One floor under another after another and when it hit about the fifth floor, I figured it was a bomb, because it looked like a synchronized deliberate kind of thing. I was there in '93."
Firefighter Christopher Fenyo: “At that point, a debate began to rage because. . . many people had felt that possibly explosives had taken out 2 World Trade, and officers were gathering companies together and the officers were debating whether or not to go immediately back in or to see what was going to happen with 1 World Trade at that point. The debate ended pretty quickly because 1 World Trade came down."
Firefighter William Reynolds: “I said, ‘Chief, they're evacuating the other building; right?’ He said, ‘No.’ . . . I said, ‘Why not? They blew up the other one.’ I thought they blew it up with a bomb. I said, ‘If they blew up the one, you know they're gonna blow up the other one.’ He said, ‘No, they're not.’ I said, ‘Well, you gotta tell them to evacuate it, because it's gonna fall down and you gotta get the guys out.’ . . . He said, ‘I'm just the Battalion Chief. I can't order that.’ . . . I said, ‘You got a f...king radio and you got a f...king mouth. Use the f...king things. Empty this f...king building.’ Again he said, ‘I'm just a Battalion Chief. I can't do that.’ . . . Eventually this other chief came back and said, ‘They are evacuating this tower.’ . . . And sometime after that . . . I watched the north tower fall."
Auxiliary Lieutenant Fireman Paul Isaac: “...there were definitely bombs in those buildings...” Isaac added: “...many other firemen know there were bombs in the buildings, but they’re afraid for their jobs to admit it because the ‘higher-ups’ forbid discussion of this fact.”

“I felt like I was being put on trial in a court room” .... “They were trying to twist my words and make the story fit only what they wanted to hear. All I wanted to do was tell the truth and when they wouldn’t let me do that, I walked out.”

9/11 panel distrusted Pentagon testimony Commissioners considered criminal probe of false statements WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A member of the 9/11 commission said Wednesday that panel members so distrusted testimony from Pentagon officials that they referred their concerns to the Pentagon's inspector general... "We were extremely frustrated with the false statements we were getting," Roemer told CNN. "We were not sure of the intent, whether it was to deceive the commission or merely part of the fumbling bureaucracy." ... "For more than two years after the attacks, officials with NORAD [the North American Aerospace Defense Command] and the FAA provided inaccurate information about the response to the hijackings in testimony and media appearances," The Washington Post reported Wednesday. "Authorities suggested that U.S. air defenses had reacted quickly, that jets had been scrambled in response to the last two hijackings and that fighters were prepared to shoot down United Airlines Flight 93 if it threatened Washington. "In fact, the commission reported a year later, audiotapes from NORAD's Northeast headquarters and other evidence showed clearly that the military never had any of the hijacked airliners in its sights and at one point chased a phantom aircraft -- American Airlines Flight 11 -- long after it had crashed into the World Trade Center," according to The Washington Post. CNN's Barbara Starr and Pam Benson contributed to this report. Question: Why would the Pentagon be aiding Osama binLaden; or was the Pentagon a part of the gang? ____________________
"I met with the 9/11 Commission behind closed doors and they essentially discounted everything I said regarding the use of explosives to bring down the north tower.”...“I contacted NIST . . . four times without a response. Finally, [at a public hearing] I asked them before they came up with their conclusion . . . if they ever considered my statements or the statements of any of the other survivors who heard the explosions. They just stared at me with blank faces.” **************
Flight 93 imbroglio (from anonymous source):
The physical Shanksville evidence does not show the crash site of a Boeing 757-200: • Amount of debris not consistent with a +120,000 lb aircraft • Crash imprint could only be caused by a vertical, or near vertical crash, which was not possible • Circular crater indicative of a below ground explosion • Grass and weeds are growing in the crater which clearly indicates the crater was made before 9/11 • Lack of fire damage • Mushroom cloud not consistent with 9,000 gallons of fuel exploding and burning • The three minute discrepancy • Flight 93: of the 45 people who are listed as dying on this flight, only 6 are listed in the SSDI. (13%) Of these 45 people, none are on the 9-11 Compensation Fund list: None.

The Great Rummy, Donald Rumsfeld, US Secretary of Defense - interviewed by Lyric Wallwork Winik, Parade Magazine Friday, Oct. 12, 2001.
"Here we're talking about plastic knives and using an American Airlines flight filled with our citizens, and the missile to damage this building and similar (inaudible) that damaged the World Trade Center."
"Of all the terrorist incidents that took place on September 11, the one that underlines most starkly the poverty of the official account is undoubtedly the attack on the Pentagon. While the strikes on the Twin Towers in New York require a little investigative digging before their true and disturbing nature is uncovered, in the case of the Pentagon it isn't necessary to look at a single scrap of evidence. Even the most cursory review of the events leading up to the attack soon makes it abundantly clear that an unanticipated attack of this kind could not, in reality, happen at all..." Leonard Spencer
"...The application of scientific reasoning in the form of inference to the best explanation, applied to the relevant evidence, establishes that the official account of the events of 9/11 cannot be sustained...we are confronted by alternative accounts of what happened on 9/11, both of which qualify as 'conspiracy theories'. It is therefore no longer rational to dismiss one of them as a 'conspiracy theory' in favor of the other. The question becomes, Which of two 'conspiracy theories' is more defensible?..." James H. Fetzer, Ph.D.
"...a small but gullible percentage of the population eager to lap up these tall tales, regardless of facts or rational analysis. One of the wilder stories circulating about September 11th - and one that has attracted something of a cult following amongst conspiracy buffs - is that it was carried out by nineteen fanatical Arab hijackers, masterminded by an evil genius named Osama bin Laden, with no apparent motivation other than that they 'hate our freedoms'...the perpetrators of this cartoon fantasy have constructed an elaborate woven web of delusions...to the extent that a number of otherwise rational people have actually fallen under its spell...These crackpots even contend that the...regime was caught unawares by the attacks, had no hand in organizing them, and actually would have stopped them if it had been able. Blindly ignoring the stand down of the US air-force...the controlled demolition of the WTC, the firing of a missile into the Pentagon and a host of other documented proofs...So they [terrorists] got on board with false IDs but took their real passports with them?..."

"Many people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one's self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice." Michael Rivero __________________________

(NYTimes 02/10/2004) Military notified on time. Commission911 Report: '...Between 8:25 a.m. and 8:32 a.m., in accordance with FAA protocol, Boston Center managers started notifying their chain-of-command that American 11 had been hijacked...The controller responsible for United 175 was unfortunately the same controller assigned the job of tracking the hijacked American 11...'
"I speak with firsthand experience (and for several score of CIA officers) when I state categorically that during this time senior White House officials repeatedly refused to act on sound intelligence that provided multiple chances to eliminate Osama bin laden." (US government official) Los Angeles Times (12/05/04)
This was Hanjour's double:
'...Hanjour went into the air in a cessna 172 with instructors...three times...[with the intention] to rent a plane from the airport...after three times in the air, they [instructors] still felt he was unable to fly solo...and instructors were surprised he was not able to fly better with the amount of experience [600 hours]' Prince George's Journal (September 18, 2001)
Whilimena says: "Intercepting aircraft is no puzzle for the Military. AP (08/12/02) reported that between September 200 and June of 2001, jets were dispatched 67 times to assess situations where it was thought that aircraft were in danger. 67 times. Yet on September 11th, the Conspiracy-of-Dunces (COD) cannot explain what was done to protect America. When asked, all members of the COD play darn lunatics. They all blame each other - they think - they did not know, and they do not recall."
Was the Military confused on 9-11? Hell no! FAA Order 7610.4J7-1-2: 'The escort service [fighter intercept] will be requested by the FAA hijack coordinator by direct contact with the National Military Command Center (NMCC).' 'In the event of a hijacking, the NMCC will be notified by the most expeditious means by the FAA. The NMCC will, with the exception of immediate responses...forward requests for DOD [Department of Defense] assistance to the Secretary of Defense for approval.' CJCSI 3610.01A (June, 2001)
Did the FAA notify the Military? Yes they did: Commission911 Report: '...Between 8:25 a.m. and 8:32 a.m., in accordance with FAA protocol, Boston Center managers started notifying their chain-of-command that American 11 had been hijacked...The controller responsible for United 175 was unfortunately the same controller assigned the job of tracking the hijacked American 11...' What was the real reason for al Qaeda to strike WTC? WTC had the most foreigners in such close proximity. This slaughter was like 'killing two birds with one stone'. Dozens of Third World citizens killed cemented the coalition: '...[they] explicitly urge[d] painting over the US's actual reasons for warfare as a necessity for mobilizing public support for a conflict." Sydney Morning Herald (12/26/02).
Tony Blair: "To be truthful about it, there was no way we could have got the public consent to have suddenly launched a campaign on Afghanistan but for what happened on September 11." (London Times, July 17, 2002) Gore Vidal: 'Osama, if it was he and not a nation, simply provided the necessary shock to put in train a war of conquest...'
Is the Military equipped to tap into the nation's radar system in an emergency? Oh yes! 'Located in the Pentagon, the NMCC can tap into radar stations and thus monitor dangerous emergencies and hijackings...' CNN, 10/26/99 Some of the thugs were heard talking about 'shock and awe'. They used words like 'spectacular' and 'magnificent' to describe the impending attacks. A writer who describes an attack on his own country does not use the word 'spectacular': The American Heritage Dictionary defines 'spectacular' thus: 'Of the nature of a spectacle; impressive or sensational...An elaborate display...splendid in appearance; grand...' Here again we find the operatives using the word 'spectacular':
Eric Lichtblau: "...The report discloses that the Federal Aviation Administration, despite being focused on risks of hijacking overseas, warned airports in the spring of 2001 that if '...the intent of the hijacker is not to exchange hostages for prisoners, but to commit suicide in a spectacular explosion, ... domestic hijacking would probably be preferable."
Israeli news sources said that the dirty Mossad was 'documenting the event'; and they certainly did. The video ended up in the hands of al Qaeda. The dirty Mossad needs its video footage of 9-11 to use as a leach to blackmail Washington al Qaeda members forever. Other nations and groups may 'hold it over the head' of Berzelius 'Buzz' Windrip to be used as leverage.
(Have you guys read the 1935 book 'It couldn't Happen Here'? The main character was Berzelius 'Buzz' Windrip) This character is the same one mentioned in the bogus Nostradamus reports. My good friend Buzz! His judgment: To additionally explain who he is we should listen to what he said after thousands were killed and missiles smashed up the pentagon and three buildings at WTC:
"[Regarding 9-11, I commend Gen Richard Myers our Military Chief, for his]...calm manner, sound judgment, and his clear strategic thinking." Imagine thousands dead - the Military chief did absolutely nothing; and one commends him for his 'clear strategic thinking'.
My God! What a Christian! And folks, according to Myers, he did not reach NMCC until about 9:30. So please tell me what Buzz called: 'clear strategic thinking'. Did al Qaeda procure warnings about the September 11 attacks? Oh yes!
Entities that gave warnings: (1) Frankfurter Algemeine Zeitung (FAZ) (2) Internet News Online (3) French Intelligence (4) Russian Intelligence including KGB top man Putin who warned the COD '...in the strongest possible terms...' '...Britain gives the US another warning about an al Qaeda attack...this warning specifies multiple airplane hijackings. This warning is included in Bush's briefing on August 6. (Sunday Herald 5/19/02)..."
CooperativeResearch "...A CIA official affirmed that: 'there was something specific in early August that said to us that [bin Laden] was determined in striking on US soil.' A major excuse given since 9/11 is that the Bush administration was focused on overseas attacks, and didn't expect a domestic attack...(AP 10/3/01)..." CooperativeReaserch Those who would habor such thoughts are already in Bellevue - not holding high office in Washington. '...The CIA issues a report warning the White House, Pentagon and Department of State that bin laden is intent on launching a terrorist attack soon, possibly inside the US. (Sunday Herald 9/23/01)...' CooperativeResearch
'We are going to be struck soon, many Americans are going to die, and it could be in the US.' Cofer Black, CIA (via Congressional Inquiry, 09/26/02) There are numerous reports indicating that the COD had various warnings or prior knowledge; and that during and after the slaughter, the said COD had reasons to know that the mainstream story about bin Laden and his cronies, as the only conspirators, was false: Washington Post, 9/23/01 New York Times, 9/19/02 Senate Intel Committee 9/18/02 Los Angeles Times 12/05/04 USA Today 4/19/04 New York Times, 10/03/01 New York Times, 09/26/01 (Mubarak warned United States.) Washington Post 10/22/02 ABC 10/23/02 AP 12/18/02 BBC 11/06/01 Sunday Herald 10/05/02 Sunday Herald 05/19/02 (Britain issues second warning.) Sydney Morning Herald 12/26/02 Guardian 09/30/01 Guardian 11/01/01 Fox News 05/17/02 (Warning from German and Russian intel.)

CS Monitor, 05/23/02, (Jordanian Intel warned US.) August 6, 2001, (Buzz received memo regarding specific terrorist threat.) More warnings! Other elements like the dirty Mossad had intricate knowledge about the impending attacks. A prosecution team could argue these points for the lynching of the perpetrators of 9-11. (1) Ehud Barak for example was on television reading from a prepared speech, lambasting 'rogue states' that threatened 'our way of life': 'If it is a kind of bin Laden organization..., I believe this is the time to deploy globally a concerted effort led by the United States...against all sources of terror...rogue states...rogue states like Iran, Iraq and Libya...our way of life will be threatened...isolate from the world every nation that is hosting them...be ready with all the pain that comes with it...It's time to launch an operational concrete war against terror.' Incidentally! Look at the background picture in the studio during the Barak presentation! You may see something! Questions: (a) When did Ehud schedule that slot on prime time television? (b) How could Ehud have known so much, so fast? (c) Doesn't his presentation sound like the Dubya script for the 'war on terror'? (d) wasn't it strange that all al Qaeda bosses fingered Osama bin Laden immediately after the attacks - eventhough they claim that they did not have any information about the impending attacks. Folks, when al Qaeda planned the Avenging Angels (9-11) operation, they said that it would be the greatest yet. However, because Daddy used some of his old dunces; 9-11 was the most seriously botched major crime. Their first major mistake? The demolition of WTC 7. ********* Did the Military have the proper equipment to detect 9-11? Yes, yes, yes! Nicky Hager, author of 'Secret Power' states: 'The ECHELON system, designed and coordinated by the U.S. national Security Agency (NSA) is one of the world's biggest, most closely held intelligence projects. Unlike many of the Cold War electronic spy systems, ECHELON is designed primarily to gather electronic transmissions from nonmilitary targets: governments, organizations, businesses, and individuals in virtually every country. The system works by indiscriminately intercepting very large quantities of communications and using computers to identify and extract messages of interest from the mass of unwanted ones...' Could the Military intercept the craft? Oh yes! Facsnet: 'Controlling the aircraft from the ground is nothing new. The military has been flying obsolete high performance fighter aircraft as target drones since the 1950's. In fact, NORAD...had at its disposal a number of U.S. Air Force General Dynamics F-106 Delta Dart fighter aircraft configured to be remotely flown into combat as early as 1959... These aircraft could be started, taxied, taken off, flown into combat, fight, and return to a landing entirely by remote control, with the only human intervention needed being to fuel and re-arm them.' Follow this piece done by Suelette Dreyfus (psychicspy) dated 11/17/99 almost two years before 9-11: 'The US National Security Agency has designed and patented a new technology that could aid it in spying on international telephone calls. The NSA patent, granted on 10 August, is for a system of automatic topic spotting and labeling of data... The NSA's invention is intended automatically to sift through human speech transcripts in any language... Bruce Schneier, author of Applied Cryptography, a textbook on the science of keeping information secret, believes the NSA currently has the ability to use computers to transcribe voice conversations... To date, it has been widely believed that while the NSA has the capability to conduct fully automated, mass electronic eavesdropping on e-mail, faxes and other written communications, it cannot do so on telephone calls...The NSA relies on an international web of eavesdropping stations around the world, commonly known as Echelon, to listen into private international communications... US Patent number 5,937,422 reveals that the NSA has designed technology to overcome these barriers... The NSA current spy technology may be more advanced than methods described in the patent...'
The ACLU reported: 'A project of the United States Department of Defense, Total Informational Awareness (TIA) is designed to gather personal data on a grand scale, including emails, phone calls, financial records, transportation habits, and medical information. Its proponents believe that by scanning and analyzing this massive pile of data, government agents will be able to predict and prevent crime...
United States - Carnivore This Internet surveillance program, which is currently being used by the United States government, is somewhat similar to ECHELON... United States intelligence officials have developed two programs which many experts believe may be used...One of these programs, Oasis, automatically creates machine-readable transcripts from television and audio broadcasts...The other program, FLUENT, allows English-language keyword searches of non-English materials... United States - TEMPEST Reports have indicated the existence of another NSA project that is designed to capture computer signals...through walls or from other buildings, even if the computers are not linked to a network...' *********
I Whilimena, would like to sit and have a few Vodka and orange with Buzz to chat a little. One moment I think that he probably did not know about 9-11 and yet another minute I think otherwise. I say this because of some of the things he said: On the day of the attacks it was The Buzz who remarked at Barksdale: 'Make no mistake - the United States will hunt down and punish those responsible for these cowardly acts.'
"The most important thing is for us to find Osama binLaden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him!". George (September 13, 2001 And, listen to this - although The Buzz said that he would 'hunt down' the terrorists, ABC, March 13, 2002, reported that he later stated: 'I truly am not that concerned about him [Osama bin Laden].' "I don't know where binLaden is! I have no idea and I really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority." George (March 13, 2002) _________________
Is there a history of Military 'stand down'? Oh Yes! Jack Blum unleashed this bombshell: 'We [investigators] ran into another procedure which was extremely troubling. There was a system for stopping Customs inspections of inbound and outbound aircraft from Miami and from other airports in Florida. People would call the Customs office and say, 'Stand down. Flights are going out. Flights are coming in'.
What do ya make of this?: In an interview with patriot Alex Jones, Attorney Stanley Hilton stated: 'Our case [lawsuit] is alleging that Bush  and his puppets Rice and Cheney and Mueller and Rumsfeld and so forth; Tenet - were all involved not only in aiding and abetting and allowing 9/11 to happen but in actually ordering it to happen...We have some very incriminating documents as well as eyewitnesses, that Bush personally ordered this event to happen in order to gain political advantage...I went to school with some of these neocons. At the University of Chicago, in the late 60's with Wolfowitz and Feith and several of the others and so I know these people personally. And we used to talk about this stuff all of the time. And I did my senior thesis on this very subject - how to turn the U.S. into a presidential dictatorship by manufacturing a bogus Pearl Harbor event. So, technically this has been in the planning at least 35 years...Yeah, we are suing Bush, Condoleeza Rice, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Mueller, etc., for complicity in personally not only allowing 9/11 to happen but in ordering it...The hijackers were U.S. undercover agents...It's not just incompetence - in spite of the fact that he is incompetent...at one point, there were rehearsals of this. The reason why he appeared to be uninterested and nonchalant on September 11th...is that he thought this was another rehearsal. These people had dress rehearsed this many times. He had seen simulated videos of this. In fact, he even made a Freudian slip...when he said he had, quote, 'seen on television the first plane attack the first tower.' Funny, but since Stanley started his whistleblowing, he has been under constant fire from al Qaeda operatives. Who trained the alleged terrorists for the 9-11 mission - Saddam Hussein? Manuel Noriega? Kim Jung Il? No bro! It was our boys! Those terrorists got their training in America, in full view of the security forces. Firstly, some practised at a place name 'Ground Zero' where American police lamented that the vehicles used for target practice were school buses and police cars.
'U.S. military sources have given the FBI information that suggests five of the alleged hijackers of the planes that were used in [September 11] terror attacks received training at secure U.S. military installations in the 1990s' Newsweek (09/15/01)
The crackpots who made the hole in Pennsylvania failed to construct it to show a craft crashing from an angle. There was green grass in the hole. What about the vertical free-fall of the WTC towers could this be as a result of impacts and fire? Hell no!
Jerry Russell, MA (Eng) and Ph.D.(Psychol). He wrote: '...The trick is to distribute explosives at key points throughout the structure. The explosives are detonated simultaneously, destroying the integrity of the steel frame at key points, such that no part of the building is supported against the force of gravity. The entire mass is pulled swiftly to earth, where gravity does the work of pounding the structure into tiny fragments of steel and concrete. The gravitational potential energy of the structure is converted smoothly and uniformly into kinetic energy, and the is available very efficiently to pulverize the fragments of the building as they impact against the unyielding earth. Controlled demolitions have a striking and characteristic appearance of smooth, flowing collapse...the World Trade center collapses looked like controlled demolitions...According to the law of gravity, it is possible to calculate the time it takes for an object to fall a given distance. The equation is H=(1/2) at 2, where H is the height, a is the acceleration of gravity (10 meters per second squared) and t is time in seconds. Plug in the height of the building at 1350 feet (411 meters) and we get 9 seconds. That is just about the length of time it took for the very top of the World Trade Center to fall to the street below. According to all reports, the whole thing was over in just about ten seconds...'
Does the dirty Mossad have a history of knowing everything? Oh Yes! They knew about a few things which would either make them God, or conspirators. Frankly their stories cannot be believed. (1) They have a reputation of bringing false news to Washington.
"Israeli intelligence, not the Reagan administration, was a major source of some of the most dramatic published reports about a Lybian assassination team allegedly sent to kill President Reagan and other top U.S. officials...Israel, which informed sources said has 'wanted an excuse to go in and bash Lybia for a longtime', may be trying to build American public support for a strike against [Ghaddafi]." Los Angeles Times (2) '...[the Mossad] had made up the hit-squad story in order to cause problems for one of israel's enemies.' Washington Post
THE SMOKING GUN: '...I would just mention that General Myers and Paul Wolfowitz have been intimately involved in the work of the Department prior to September 11th, on September 11th and subsequent to September 11th...
How many countries would have joined [without 9-11]? Any? Not likely... We would have heard objections to preemption similar to those voiced before the coalition launched Operation Iraqi Freedom. We would have been asked, 'How could you attack Afghanistan when it was al Qaida that attacked us, not the Taliban?' 'How can you go to war when countries in the region don't support you?' 'Won't launching such an invasion actually promote terrorist attacks against the United States?'... Unfortunately history shows that it can take a tragedy like September 11 to waken the world to new threats and to the need for action... During the course of the day, [September 11] the President indicated he expected us to provide him with robust options for military responses to that attack... A 90-nation coalition is a big thing... Someone asked me if Osama bin Laden is masterminding all of this...there were a number of reports about potential hijacking... I didn't say we didn't know.

Louis Freeh - Director of the FBI, 1993-2001. "Even the most junior investigator would immediately know that the name and photo ID of Atta in 2000 is precisely the kind of tactical intelligence the FBI has many times employed to prevent attacks and arrest terrorists. Yet the 9/11 Commission inexplicably concluded that it "was not historically significant." This astounding conclusion--in combination with the failure to investigate Able Danger and incorporate it into its findings--raises serious challenges to the commission's credibility and, if the facts prove out, might just render the commission historically insignificant itself. … No wonder the 9/11 families were outraged by these revelations and called for a "new" commission to investigate." http://www.opinionjournal.com/...

Is it gross malfeasance, gross negligence, misfeasance? … Now there are a whole bunch of unanswered questions. And the reason they’re unanswered is because this administration will not answer the questions. … I just want to reassert, what Scott [Ritter, former Major in the U.S. Marines Corps, former Chief Weapons Inspector for the United Nations Special Commission in Iraq] said and this is the bottom line for me, just as Hitler in 1933 cynically exploited the burning of the parliament building, the Reichstag, this is exactly what our President did in exploiting 9/11. The cynical way in which he played on our trauma, used it to justify attacking, making a war of aggression on a country that he knew had nothing to do with 9/11. That suffices for me, I think Scott is exactly right, that’s certainly an impeachable offense." http://video.google.com/videoplay?... http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1232419751782017310&q=

Col. Robert Bowman, PhD, U.S. Air Force (ret) (PhD in Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering, Cal Tech). "A lot of these pieces of information, taken together, prove that the official story, the official conspiracy theory of 9/11 is a bunch of hogwash. It’s impossible. … There’s a second group of facts having to do with the cover up. … Taken together these things prove that high levels of our government don’t want us to know what happened and who’s responsible. … Who gained from 9/11? Who covered up crucial information about 9/11? And who put out the patently false stories about 9/11 in the first place? When you take those three things together, I think the case is pretty clear that it’s highly placed individuals in the administration with all roads passing through Dick Cheney. I think the very kindest thing that we can say about George W. Bush and all the people in the U.S. Government that have been involved in this massive cover-up, the very kindest thing we can say is that they were aware of impending attacks and let them happen.

George Nelson, U.S. Air Force (ret) "The government alleges that four wide-body airliners crashed on the morning of September 11 2001, resulting in the deaths of more than 3,000 human beings, yet not one piece of hard aircraft evidence has been produced in an attempt to positively identify any of the four aircraft. On the contrary, it seems only that all potential evidence was deliberately kept hidden from public view. …With all the evidence readily available at the Pentagon crash site, any unbiased rational investigator could only conclude that a Boeing 757 did not fly into the Pentagon as alleged. Similarly, with all the evidence available at the Pennsylvania crash site, it was most doubtful that a passenger airliner caused the obvious hole in the ground and certainly not the Boeing 757 as alleged. …As painful and heartbreaking as was the loss of innocent lives and the lingering health problems of thousands more, a most troublesome and nightmarish probability remains that so many Americans appear to be involved in the most heinous conspiracy in our country's history." http://www.physics911.net/georgenelson.... http://www.physics911.net/georgenelson.htm
Capt. Russ Wittenberg, U.S. Air Force (ret) - Air Force fighter pilot with over 100 combat missions.

"The airplane [Flight 77] could not have flown at those speeds which they said it did without going into what they call a high speed stall. The airplane won’t go that fast if you start pulling those high G maneuvers at those bank angles. … And so for them to expect this alleged airplane to run these maneuvers with a total amateur at the controls is simply ludicrous. …It’s roughly a 100 ton airplane. And an airplane that weighs 100 tons all assembled is still going to have 100 tons of disassembled trash and parts after it hits a building. There was no wreckage from a 757 at the Pentagon. … The vehicle that hit the Pentagon was not Flight 77.

Barbara Honegger - Senior Military Affairs Journalist at the Naval Postgraduate School, the Navy’s advanced science, technology and national security affairs university. "The US military, not al Qaeda, had the sustained access weeks before 9/11 to also plant controlled demolition charges throughout the superstructures of WTC 1 and WTC2, and in WTC7, which brought down all three buildings on 9/11. ... A US military plane, not one piloted by al Qaeda, performed the highly skilled, high−speed 270−degree dive towards the Pentagon that Air Traffic Controllers on 9/11 were sure was a military plane as they watched it on their screens. Only a military aircraft, not a civilian plane flown by al Qaeda, would have given off the "Friendly" signal needed to disable the Pentagon’s anti−aircraft missile batteries as it approached the building. Only the US military, not al Qaeda, had the ability to break all of its Standard Operating Procedures to paralyze its own emergency response system." http://blog.lege.net/... http://blog.lege.net/content/Seven_Hours_in_September.pdf
