My name is Russell Pickering. I spent approximately 4 years of my life seriously dedicated to understanding what happened at the Pentagon. I used to have the Pentagon Research website. When I decided to leave the 9/11 movement I handed it off to Cosmic Penguin. They let the domain lapse and now it is a purveyor of 9/11 books.
The reason I’ve decided to share some observations here is so that those of us with a pre-disposition to myopia might look up for a minute and assess the current social climate and its implications for near future events.
Many here are astute observers and certainly the majority of you carry credentials far beyond my GED, so, bear with me and just consider this message fairly. Most of you here are sincere Patriots with a deep regard for Truth. Some here are not so benevolent!
After meticulous and dedicated research, including a trip to DC as part of Loose Change’s research team, I can assure you with 100% certainty an aircraft impacted the Pentagon. This is just a physical fact – albeit a counterintuitive one.
So, how did this all start? The forces behind 9/11 realized very quickly after Meyssan’s initial book, and the fortuitous circumstance that for all practical purposes there was nothing indicating an aircraft struck the Pentagon, the option of leaving a void of data was the best tactic.
Let’s test this hypothesis in the real world. How many hours have brilliant people spent arguing this? How many words typed? How much energy and passion has been drained from creating an orderly presentation of 9/11 Truth to the American public? How many people have sickened of this wretched debate and quit contributing all together? How many hours of public awareness of WTC 7 and many much more obvious facts have been sacrificed? This list goes on and on and on.
You see? This plane/no-plane debate at the Pentagon is responsible for more division, destruction and disgusting behavior than any other 9/11 topic. It has deterred more of the general public from understanding the BIG PICTURE than any other aspect of 9/11. It has misdirected more passion and energy than any other 9/11 Truth topic. It has fueled the egos and delusions of a few to the point they can no longer be regarded as honestly caring anything about the uninformed American citizen. They just want to win the argument, support themselves financially and be the gatekeepers of Pentagon “truth”.
If I had it to do over again I wouldn’t spend one minute arguing this issue. Not one! As an example, I recently watched Jesse Ventura’s presentation on the Pentagon. Despite the fact he was drawn into a non-factual belief about there being no plane, his work will do more to stir the thoughts of the American people than the thousands of hours and millions of words exchanged over the last nine years regarding this matter.
The American public generally won’t take the time to sort the details in any case. However, the fact that something is amiss will fuel their doubt about 9/11 and the elements within our government that orchestrated it. This is what we need now, not a bunch of egomaniacs yakking at each other on the Internet. If you haven’t noticed there is a Revolution brewing. At various levels, and for a multiplicity of reasons, the dense fog of sleep is lifting from those we originally claimed to care about – the average Citizen.
We have 8 months now to capitalize upon this phenomenon as the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaches. It will be THE OPPORTUNITY we’ve all been dreaming of! 10 years of lessons learned. 10 years to refine data. 10 years to amass informed specialists in various disciplines. 10 years for the government to show its true colors.
What will you do with your 8 months? If you haven’t noticed, the coupe starting with 9/11 is so far successful. The Constitution is eviscerated, the illegal occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan has become an obvious disaster and the U.S. is descending into Banker controlled fascism. The general public is finally starting to ask why.
What will your answer be?
Sincerely and with great hope,
