September 11, 2010 was the 9th anniversary of the sudden collapse and pulverization into fine toxic dust (except for the thermite-sectioned steel beams), of the three World Trade Center towers (1, 2 & 7). What really happened on 9/11, contrary to the mainstream media-promulgated Bush/Cheney White House conspiracy theories, is becoming increasingly clear. The most recent among many clinchers is the fact that the dust at Gound Zero has been found, conclusively, to contain large amounts of weapons-grade nanothermite, a highly explosive substance that is only manufactured for the US military and is only used for demolition purposes.
There are now significant numbers of clear-headed, intelligent, patriotic US citizens (as well as hundreds of millions of equally clear-headed critical thinkers worldwide) who have finally seen through the provably-untrue Bush/Cheney White House-generated, Mother-of-All-Conspiracy-Theories about who and what they wanted us to believe brought down the towers on the morning and afternoon of 9/11/01.
Everyone who had access to a television screen back then saw, over and over again, large jet planes hitting WTC skyscrapers 1 & 2, but there was no media coverage allowed of the obvious controlled demolition of WTC tower #7 later that day (at 5:30 pm). (WTC # 7 was a 47 story steel-reinforced skyscraper that was a couple of blocks from the twin towers. It was not hit by a plane and only had a few small fires on lower floors.)
Within 60 – 90 minutes after the twin towers were hit, the upper portions of each tower exploded into dust, and the buildings fell directly and rapidly, at freefall speeds (meaning there was nothing below the upper portions to slow down the collapse). All three skyscrapers fell directly into their footprints – just as happens with all well-planned controlled demolitions of skyscrapers when orchestrated by highly skilled demolition experts. The pulverization was so complete that there weren’t any piles of debris, as would be expected, at the twin towers’ bases. Every honest demolition expert on the planet who has studied the videos of the collapses will tell you that the three buildings were imploded. Each expert will point out as supporting evidence the numerous “squibs” of smoke just below the leading edge of the collapsing buildings that indicated internal explosions severing the steel beams.
Explosions in the Buildings Before They Fell
TV commentators reporting on the scene that day interviewed scores of eyewitnesses who testified that they had heard multiple bomb explosions at the bases of the buildings before either of the twin towers fell. Reporting live and un-edited, many journalists said that they themselves had heard explosions in the buildings while the towers were still standing. Those stories were never allowed to be heard on TV again.
Since 9/11/01 there have been large numbers of highly intelligent, courageous critical thinkers, including scholars, philosophers, theologians, scientists, physicists, chemists, architects, engineers, intelligence agents, demolition experts, airline pilots, medical professionals, military veterans, etc who have recognized that the official White House “conspiracy theory” about the collapse is patently absurd, anti-scientific, illogical and provably false. These diverse groups have accumulated a tremendous amount of documented evidence, all of which is accessible on their websites and which easily debunks the official, politically-motivated version of 9/11
The Scandalous 9/11 Commission Investigation and Report Ignores the Science
There are any number of false statements, omissions and ignored or censored-out testimony that shaped the fraudulent official 9/11 Commission Report. (It is helpful to recall the white-washed Warren Commission that did the same thing in their deeply flawed investigation of the Kennedy assassination, censoring out a multitude of facts and ignoring dozens of eye-witnesses while claiming to be searching for the truth.) The White House appointees to both commissions were mostly high-ranking political allies of the administrations in whose interest it was to obfuscate the facts, and their final reports were clearly attempts to alter the truth. Just one such example in the case of the 9/11 Commission report is the fact that no mention whatever was made of WTC # 7, in spite of the fact that WTC owner Larry Silverstein himself admitted, in a televised interview that tower # 7 that he OK’ed the order to “pull” # 7 (“pull” is vernacular for the controlled demolition of a building).
Virtually all of the provable facts about what really happened on 9/11/01 have never been reported in the obviously co-opted mainstream media, whether print, TV or radio. But there are vast amounts of factual material easily available in many alternative sources, especially YouTube, DVDs and on scores of 9/11 Truth websites (see a sampling at such websites at the end of this essay). If one honestly explores those sources, especially those that have remained untainted or not “shut down” by those groups who invented or support the prevailing White House conspiracy theory, one can only conclude that WTC Towers 1, 2 & 7 came down by controlled demolition using pre-planted thermite charges, the only way to bring down modern steel beam-reinforced skyscrapers. The distracted, the unaware, the intellectually lazy, the politically naïve, those who do not have access to the evidence and many of us who have been so successfully brain-washed by the political insiders who were involved (and their obedient minions) will have difficulty admitting that they were fooled. But when the pertinent evidence has been studied and/or we carefully listen to the trustworthy experts who have done the investigative work for us, we will then be able to overcome our reluctance to acknowledge that our political and military leaders would actually kill their own citizens (or torture or assassinate potentially innocent suspects) to further their hidden agendas.
Should Pathological Liars Ever be Believed Again?
The real “conspiracy fact” is what the widely-ignored and unfairly-demeaned patriots in the 9/11 Truth movement have known all along: that, whether or not the planes (or possibly computer-controlled drones?) were allowed to hit the two towers or were made to hit the two towers, the only explanation for the dramatic collapses is that pre-planted explosive devices were used and that the far-fetched, full-of-holes official theories so vigorously advanced by various pathological liars in the Bush/Cheney White House are not to be believed!
We Americans haven’t learned the lessons of the following aphorism (that President Bush garbled so embarrassingly on live TV when he tried to say it): “Fool me (lie to me) once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” The White House leaders, who so cavalierly placed hundreds of thousands of American soldiers in harm’s way on the basis of a string of lies should not be automatically believed ever again, and it is the duty of those of us who have been fooled by them before to go back to the period before their Big Lie became apparent and rethink everything they had said earlier, including the unbelievable official story about 9/11 that came from the now-exposed liars in the late, lamented administration that was occupied by Bush, Cheney, Libby, Rove, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld and Rice.
Predictably, the burgeoning 9/11 Truth movement has been widely infiltrated by a variety of agents provocateur who are on the payrolls of anti-democracy elites and their special interest groups who have been trying to sabotage the efforts of the various 9/11 Truth-seeking groups by attempting to discredit them or get them to use violence in their protest actions.
False Flag Operations and The Project for the New American Century
To rephrase the issue: the only plausible explanation for the collapse of the three WTC towers is that American government insiders planned and executed the deeds, most likely at the instigation of the Project for the New American Century, who were intimate operatives within the Bush/Cheney administration. It is highly probable that the events of 9/11 occurred without the knowledge of President Bush himself. One only has to recall the bewildered look on his face (best shown in Michael Moore’s movie “Fahrenheit 9/11”) after Andrew Card told him “America is under attack” in the middle of a photo-op event involving a group of black grade school students who were reading “My Pet Goat”.
False Flag operations are often carried out by powerful secret groups who then try to blame a scapegoat group for doing the evil deed. Examples include the “Remember the Maine” Incident, Operation Northwoods, the Gulf of Tonkin Incident. American False Flag ops of the magnitude of 9/11 require an enormous amount of help and cooperation from any number of black-ops groups such as those in the Pentagon, the FBI and/or the CIA and, in this case, the cooperation of a world-class demolition team who succeeded so impressively in accomplishing the final dramatic homicidal deed by bringing down, directly into their footprints, the three WTC towers. The confusing drama convinced the Congress – as well as most of us, their equally bewildered and continuously propagandized constituents – to foolishly and blindly charge headlong into two criminal wars and several Constitution-shredding legislative acts like the Patriot Act and the Homeland Security Act, both of which had been planned for and written way before 9/11, by members of the Project for the New American Century.
And then, when the buildings had been blasted into highly toxic dust and fumes, EPA bureaucrats, obediently taking their orders from somebody in the White House, promised the rescue and cleanup workers (60% of whom are now sick, dead or dying) that the poisonous, asbestos- and heavy metal-contaminated air was safe for them to breathe. And then, on top of that, the insiders who were part of the cover-up, ordered the destruction of most of the evidence at Ground Zero by shipping the thermite-sectioned multi-ton steel beams overseas (to Asia) where they were rapidly melted down before they could be analyzed as crime scene evidence. (It needs to be pointed out that altering a crime scene is a federal offense, and that those who ordered this obvious cover-up have not been brought to justice.)
This very short list of factors support the contention that the official conspiracy theory is bogus: 1) The twin towers couldn’t be left standing after they were hit (because a] survivors could have given testimony; b] whatever hit the buildings could have been examined; c] the cockpit recorders would have been found; and d] etc, etc, etc). 2) The buildings had to be dramatically brought down for the Congress and the voters to be frightened enough to let the Bush administration lead the US into two disastrous wars. 3) It is scientifically and physically impossible for planes or fires to bring down modern steel-reinforced skyscrapers (the scores of massive internal steel beams would still be poking up even if the preposterous pancake theory was correct). 4) Pre-planted explosive devices using high-explosive thermite charges are the only way to bring down steel-reinforced skyscrapers. 5) Kerosene jet fuel fires cannot burn hot enough and, in the case of 9/11, they certainly did not burn long enough to even soften the supporting steel beams, much less melt them or instantaneously cut them into convenient 30 foot sections!
Ask physicist Steven Jones, co-founder, along with Dr. James Fetzer, of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, who discovered large amounts of nanothermite in the Ground Zero dust. Dr. Jones published his analysis of the dust in a peer-reviewed scientific journal a couple of years ago.
Ask any honest architect or engineer who has studied the videos of the collapses of the three towers, and he or she will tell you that fires cannot bring down such towers and that highly skilled demolition teams imploded each of them.
Ask any honest pilot who has studied the impossible spiraling descent of the plane that was falsely purported to hit the Pentagon, and he will tell you that no amateur, and very few professional pilots, could have accomplished the high speed 270 degree turn to hit the building at ground level, leaving a hole less than 20 feet across with no plane debris, no jet engines, no cockpit recorder, no baggage and no passenger’s bodies at the site.
The Firefighters Were Killed by the Demolitions, not the Planes
It is not accurate to say that either the planes or the resulting fires killed 3000 Americans on 9/11/01. The explosions and the resulting collapse of towers 1 & 2 – and not the planes – was the cause of death for the firefighters and many of the other innocent victims who may have been trapped above the crash sites. Certainly unknown numbers were killed by the impact of the planes and the resultant very brief fireballs. Indeed, dozens did jump to their deaths to avoid being asphyxiated by the smoke, but many hundreds of the others did not die because of the planes. Rather, they were killed by the explosions and the subsequent collapse of the twin towers. Even those who were on the floors above the crash sites could have been rescued after the rapidly self-extinguishing fires had burned out. So, whoever orchestrated the collapses are the real killers – and they are still on the loose.
In other words, the planes and the fires could not, by themselves, justify the Wars for Oil and the hoped-for Full Spectrum Domination being planned by the US military and the nefarious NeoConservative imperialists in the Project for the New American Century (PNAC). PNAC had pre-planned the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that are now bankrupting, both economically and morally, the US and simultaneously strengthening the police state apparatus in the Pentagon, the CIA, the FBI, Homeland Security, FEMA, TSA and other National Security agencies.
The Serious Consequences of Failing to Re-Investigate 9/11
And we unaware and obedient sheeple, brain-washed 24/7 by the ubiquitous talking heads, the conservative corporate-owned and controlled mainstream media and 95% of the lapdogs in Congress. Most of us have swallowed the Big Lie hook, line and sinker and even have the gall to ridicule those courageous truth-seekers who have seen through the lies and have the proof to back up their position. And what is the saddest for me is the fact that many progressive-minded people (even some antiwar activists), congresspersons, writers, magazines and various so-called liberal media outlets (including National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting System) seem to treat those seeking the truth about 9/11 as pariahs, therefore inadvertently furthering the agendas of their future conservative oppressors, either out of willful ignorance or by refusing to take the time to fully examine the evidence that proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt that the White House 9/11 conspiracy theories are false.
Consequently, the Limbaugh/Hannity/Beck/Palin/FoxNews cabal and the most anti-democratic of the TeaPartiers – are temporarily prospering now because of the fact that the cover-up of the treasonous insider actions of 9/11 has been so successfully accomplished, remaining uninvestigated in the name of national unity by the complicit members of the Obama administration. And therefore the unknown insiders involved in the Republican Crime and Cover-up of the Century have been allowed to go free and unpunished, with no subpoenas or indictments being issued. The real culprits that orchestrated 9/11 are still hiding out, probably in plain sight. Because there has been no inclination by the powers-that-be to investigate these crimes the real culprits now feel that they have gotten off scot-free. This has emboldened them to actually feel that they have a good chance to regain the political power that they should have lost permanently for their part in getting the US into the Middle East quagmire.
The original Big Lie Cover-Ups came from the right-wing of the political spectrum, the corporatist/neofascist/militarist Ruling Elite agendas that are protecting their guilty 9/11 conspirator friends who know full well that, if there was any justice in the world, they would be in the dock in The Hague, trying to defend themselves against International War Crimes charges. Instead they are planning on regaining control of the White House and the Congress to again pursue their imperialist agendas.
So I am pleading with all open-minded, un-brain-washed patriots, to wake up and seriously study the 9/11 Truth websites listed below before our democracy has been totally subverted by the powerful, anti-democracy agendas of the ruling elite who profit from war. Please, get up to speed on the facts of the 9/11 Truth movement. After all, the truth is supposed to set us free and ignorance of the truth will further enslave us.
The mainstream media’s complicity in the suppression of the truth about 9/11and the illegalities of the ensuing wars are, it seems to me, not only criminal but also treasonous. Therefore, the searchers for truth, especially those of us in the peace, justice and reconciliation movements need to stand up and demand justice in the form of a truly independent commission that does not disregard important witness testimony or the clear scientific evidence that proves that the official version of 9/11 was false. If that re-investigation doesn’t happen, justice will continue to be denied for the thousands of American victims of the WTC collapses and the dying American rescuers and cleanup crews (and their families), the thousands of dead, dying and wounded warriors who fought in the illegal wars and the millions of their Muslim enemy-victims in the foreign wars that 9/11 launched. And if justice continues to be denied, the America that we know and love will continue to disappear into the neo-fascist police state reality that is already gathering speed.
