From the May 2004 Idaho Observer:
by Hari Heath
The great new pastime among certain conspiratorial circles all over the world is trying to discover the real reasons why members of the Bush administration so consistently do things that are not in the best interests of anyone -- not even themselves or their friends. At first blush it looked like they used 9/11 to declare a war on terror as a ruse to gain control of Middle East and Caspian Basin oil. Then it became apparent that they were just using the war on terror to gain more control over the American people. And now it is looking as if they are doing everything in their power to make the world angry and disgusted with the U.S. Why? It is becoming painfully clear that the Bush administration is setting the U.S. up to be annihilated. U.S. forces are spread too thin all over a world that is coalescing in opposition to U.S. military and economic policies.
The media's hammer has forged an idea in the public's mind that 19 Arab terrorists committed the greatest attack ever on American soil. By constantly striking at our minds, against the anvil of government, many have come to believe the official story. So much so, that to raise questions about the official story often results in disdainful silence and querying looks.
But many of us have been questioning anyway. The forging in the collective American mind is emerging as a forgery. Globally and individually, the official story is unraveling.
It is generally a principle that for the media to be credible it must use reliable, verifiable sources for its information. Large media operations even have research staffs to cross check and verify stories before they are published or broadcast.
So how do we know that 19 Arabs terrorized our nation with four airliners? The FBI said so. Based upon what credible evidence? The FBI said so. A day-and-a-half after the attack, the names, faces and history of those 19 mass murderers were known.
Or were they? The initial hype that indelibly forged the notion of suicide hijackers, based on the bold claims of those in authority, has long faded away. But the notion remains. Journalists and broadcasters continue to assert the 19 hijackers FBI theory, absent any evidence, and contrary to the principles of good journalism.
The FBI now says the purported hijackers left no paper trail. FBI Director Mueller spoke at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco April 19, 2002 and stated: In our investigation, we have not uncovered a single piece of paper -- either here in the United States or in the treasure trove of information that has turned up in Afghanistan and elsewhere -- that mentioned any aspect of the Sept. 11 plot.
Los Angeles Times reporters Erich Lichtblau and Josh Meyer describe Mueller's evidence fiasco: Law enforcement officials say that while they have been able to reconstruct the movements of the hijackers before the attacks -- all legal except for a few speeding tickets -- they have found no evidence of their actual plotting. The FBI's most comprehensive and detailed investigation is remarkable as much for what investigators have not found as for what they have. The FBI director explained away the absence of evidence by making the disingenuous assertion that the hijackers used 'meticulous planning, extraordinary secrecy and extensive knowledge of how America works' to conceal their scheme.
Mueller made this claim despite the fact that in the immediate wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, a variety of U.S. officials and media sources speciously announced, almost instantaneously, that there was firm evidence not only that these 19 Muslim men were agents of Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda 'network' but that they were indeed the individuals who hijacked the doomed flights on Sept. 11. Mueller seems to forget that early government and media reports loudly hyped 'discoveries' -- letters and other documents -- in the luggage and personal belongings of the presumed hijackers which 'proved' that they were on a 'mission for Allah.'
But the BBC has reported that as many as nine of the alleged hijackers are still alive. Other reports soon after 9/11 claimed several were dead before 9/11. And the Airline's passenger manifests of each airliner are also about a half a dozen Arabs short of the FBI's own lists.
The Bush anomaly
David Ray Griffin exposes another anomaly:
After Andrew Card reported the second crash on the World Trade Center, the president just nodded as if he understood and said, 'we're going to go ahead with the reading lesson.' And he sat there another 15 minutes listening to the children read a story about a pet goat. This was a photo op and when it was over he lingered around talking to the children and talking to the teacher.
And then the president went on national TV, going forward with an interview that had been planned and announced in advance . . . then they took their regularly scheduled motorcade back to the airport. In other words, [Bush and the Secret Service] showed no fear whatsoever that they would be targeted for attack, which strongly suggests they knew how many aircraft were being hijacked and what their targets were.
It is very difficult for Americans to face the possibility that their own government may have caused or deliberately allowed such a heinous event. Secondly, one can understand that insofar as the media is owned by companies like General Electric, which is one of the largest makers of weapons, networks like NBC that are owned by GE would not wish to publicize these connections. And finally, 9/11 was immediately treated not only as a matter of patriotism but almost as a religious event. Bush declared his war on terrorism from the national cathedral. And so from then on, any questioning of the official account could be and was criticized as being undemocratic and almost sacrilegious.
Flight 93 discrepancies
James Sanders posted an article on World Net Daily April 26, 2004, stating: One more telling quote comes from the ABC program, by Gen. Winfield: 'It was about, you know, 10:03 that the fighters reported that Flight 93 had crashed.' The FBI seized Flight 93's CVR (Cockpit Voice Recorder) and claims the tape stopped at 10:03 a.m. But NORAD's own timeline says the F-16s were still 11 minutes away from intercept when Flight 93 crashed and 'Several leading seismologists agree that Flight 93 crashed last Sept. 11 at 10:06:05 a.m., give or take a couple of seconds,' according to a Sept. 16, 2002, Philadelphia Daily News article.
Three minutes are not accounted for. What do the feds wish to hide from the public? Would something be amiss with their brave heroes of Flight 93 theory?
Witness Susan Mcelwain told a reporter she observed a small jet just prior to Flight 93 crashing: 'It came right over me, I reckon just 40 or 50 feet above my minivan ... it was so low, I ducked instinctively. It was traveling real fast, but hardly made any sound.' At least five other witnesses to this low-flying jet came forward and told their story to journalists. One witness, less than a half mile from the crash site, observed Flight 93 as it streaked toward the ground and crashed. He then, almost immediately, observed a small, white jet fly low to the ground over the crash scene, circle and immediately leave the area.
Shortly thereafter, the FBI began to attack the witnesses with perhaps the most inane disinformation ever -- alleging the witnesses actually observed a private jet at 34,000 feet. The FBI says the jet was asked to come down to 5,000 feet and try to find the crash site. This would require about 20 minutes to descend and get over the crash, assuming the pilot immediately found it. The FBI statement is nothing more than poorly thought out disinformation.
John Fleegle, Jim Brant and Carol Delasko were about two-and-a-half miles from what would soon become the Flight 93 crash site. According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, they 'heard engines screaming close overhead. The building shook. We ran out, heard the explosion and saw a fireball mushroom ...' Delasko ... said she thought someone had blown up a boat on the lake. 'It just looked like confetti raining down all over the air above the lake.'
The 757 was perhaps 20 seconds from crashing when observed by Fleegle, Brant and Delasko. Its cargo area and passenger area had been opened by an explosion. News reports describe a large number of cancelled checks, stock broker documents, pieces of seats, small chunks of melted plastic and small human parts. Also adding to the evidence is the fact that a 1,000-pound section of an engine fan was found 6,000 feet from the crash site. So, an external explosive event separated 1,000 pounds of engine and opened up a hole in the passenger cabin and cargo hold.
Swiss cheese at the Pentagon
The airliner that hit the Pentagon story is also full of holes. There were no 757 parts visible or recovered. Windows near the impact site were unbroken where 757 wings should have shattered them -- the hole wasn't big enough for an airliner. No passenger bodies were recovered. The surveillance photos show something other than an airliner hit the Pentagon, and somehow the most defended airspace in the world was allowed to be attacked approximately an hour after the attacks began in New York. The details of the Pentagon deceptions fill several books and videos.
Missiles over NY?
But the most damning evidence yet to counter the official story comes from Phil Jayhan and letsroll911.org. He describes a missile pod on the underside of the plane that hit the second WTC tower and fired a missile moments before impact.
This picture from ABC News shows clearly the extra undercarriage equipment this 'special 767' had attached to it; One thing is for certain; this plane is not the same plane that took off from Logan International Airport that morning, as this 'extra' equipment would have given it away in a heartbeat to the ground crews. The extra equipment on the planes undercarriage is in all of the stills of the video sequence. As far as I am concerned there is only one smoking gun among hundreds of strong evidences, to show 911 wasn't done by Arab terrorists, and was an inside job. This proof is in the videos. It doesn't require a degree in rocket science to be able to watch a video of a plane shooting a missile out of its undercarriage to be able to tell it's a missile. This is part of the verifiable and permanent record of September 11th, 2001.
I personally believe this one facet of the 911 Investigation (the planes armed with missiles) has more potential for uncovering the culprits of 9/11 than all of the others combined. My reasoning; you can see it on video, and watch the same thing from different angles and news stations simply by 'changing the channel.' 95% of all the people I share this with in public believe it simply by seeing the pictures I present them along with my short 3 minute narration -- truly 9/11 for dummies!
Had someone simply slowed these videos down on 911 and examined them, we would never have gone off to war against Afghanistan. Or Iraq. Because as you can see, it was possible to convince the American public that 19 Arab hijackers, with no requisite flying skills, flew these 767s into the World trade Center. However, if they tried telling the American public that these 19 hijackers infiltrated ground crews at 3 major airports and somehow mounted that monstrosity to the fuselage on at least one plane, and equipped the Boeing 767 with missiles, the American public just wouldn't buy it.
Jayhan claims his video analysis confirms the following evidence:
1. Pictures & Video show an extra piece of equipment on the undercarriage of the 767. It is in every video regardless of the news network affiliate that taped it. It is in stills. And it shouldn't be there. It is not landing gear. It is not bay doors. It is not landing lights. It is not a flare. It is a missile pod.
2. A missile/missiles shoots out from the first plane in the fireman's video and strikes the North Tower just ahead of striking the building itself.
3. A single Missile shoots out of the 2nd plane into the World Trade Center fractions of a second before the plane strikes the building. This is caught on every video made where the entire plane can be seen, regardless of the News Affiliate. You will see as you watch the videos that it is not a shadowing problem or landing gear. It is viewable in all of the videos from beginning to end. It's a missile pod.
So why a pod and a missile?
The pod or canopy was there to hide the missile and it's exhaust plume upon ignition, as much as possible. And why the missile? To blow something up. So what is it they wanted to blow up?
Jayhan believes there are several possibilities why missiles were used:
1. To insure the destruction of the 767, as it was not the same plane that took off from Boston's Logan Airport that morning.
2. To Maximize loss of Life and to cut off avenues of escape for the top dwellers at the WTC at both structures, thus insuring a high loss of life and a timely world war.
3. To make a more spectacular made-for-TV media event, which tends to help the war drums beat louder and faster.
Who was in control?
In 2002, Colonel Donn de Grand Pre directed a select group of experienced military and civilian pilots through a non-stop 72-hour symposium to analyze the available facts and evidence on the events of 9/11. The group unanimously decided that the flight crews of the 4 airliners had no control of their aircraft on 9/11. If they didn't, who did? And were those only missile pods attached to the airliners, or did they also contain remote flight controls, as some have theorized?
The following are excerpts from a February 25, 2004 radio interview with Colonel Donn de Grand Pre on the Alex Jones Show:
DGP: What I want to carry away is that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs himself has agreed, there were no hijackers. There were no cell phone calls. Everybody aboard that aircraft, pilots and crew, were unconscious within 8 to 18 minutes after takeoff. And you can take it from there.
AJ: So, they're knocked out and then the remote control takes place and the rest is history.
DGP: Yeah, there was remote control and yes, these planes were being piloted by remote control, probably an AWACs aircraft taking over that airplane or airplanes or drones, unmanned drones. And flying them at 5 and 8 G-force that no pilot could withstand.
DGP: This comes under speculation now. I'm telling you that we are knowledgeably speculating. Those aircraft carrying crew and passengers went over the Atlantic and that was all she wrote.
AJ: Yeah, you remote control the original planes out, then your loaded up drones attack. And the biggest and oldest newspaper in Spain just came out, three weeks ago, and they looked at the bottom of one of those jets and there's some type of giant belly attachment. It's clearly a modified aircraft.
The USA TODAY recently ran a front page story that NORAD, prior to 9/11, had over 100 drills that were eerily like 9/11 in which scenarios of planes being crashed into buildings were run. These included live drills using commercial and military aircraft. Were these defensive drills or practice runs for the real event?
Meanwhile the official 9/11 whitewash commission is busy hammering the anvil with the notion that components of government were remiss in their duties, which allowed the 19 terrorists to attack us. But the evidence suggests that the 19 hijackers are FBI fiction and the real terrorists are in the shadows of our own government, shooting a missile at the Pentagon; a missile at Flight 93 over Pennsylvania; and possibly remote flying missile-firing-airliners into the WTC towers.
The Bush-selected, CFR membered 9/11 whitewash commission will never allow the scope of the inquiry to expand beyond the official story of 19 Arabs. Only breaches of intelligence and miscommunication between agencies will be explored. Ultimately, this will result in a proposal for an even larger super-agency to protect us from the future fictional terrorists they claim are coming.
Will the real story ever be fully unraveled? Will the current forging of the public mind ever be reforged under the heat of the current missile evidence? And what will America and the world do when it realizes the current U.S. regime fired upon its own people and fabricated a cruel hoax to justify an unprovoked war, the destruction of our Constitution and the illegitimate construction of the greatest dictatorial regime the world has yet to see?
Note: We realize the photos on these pages [IO print edition] are not clear enough to really see what Jayhan is describing. But, if you go to the website at www.letsroll911.org you can see the images more clearly. Also, if you have your own video of the Twin Towers attack, go frame-by frame and see what has been right in front of us all this time.
