This one has been bugging me for a long time and I’ve written about here a few times too. While not overly preoccupied with it or consumed by it, I believe it was the pivotal point in our modern history. It was the single day in recent time that has changed all others over the last sixteen years and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Modern day Americans call it their Pearl Harbour.
I’m speaking of course about the terror attacks in America on September 11th, 2001. The 20th century had its fair share of conspiracies and conspiracy theories also. That September morning though has now got three conspiracy theories attached to it. These are:
1. It was a surprise attack nobody expected – Official Conspiracy Version
2. It was known about in advance but allowed to happen _ Documented but Denied Officially
3. It was conceived and made to happen by elements within the US – Unofficial Conspiracy Version
1. Official Version:
Number one is the official conspiracy theory which claims that Osama bin Laden masterminded and ran cells of Muslim terrorists to hijack civilian aircraft and targeted key sites in America. Let’s look at that first. On the morning, just minutes after the attacks, nominated spokespersons for Government were in news rooms and on television carefully placing the name of Bin Laden on record as a possible suspect. All kinds of theories were put forward as to how he might have directed it but as such, there was no hard evidence. Then the names of the hi-jackers began to trickle out that afternoon and the following day and soon a picture of the hijacking guys on the planes was painted. Unofficial sources were quoted as explaining how and where these guys boarded each flight so at this point you were thinking, great police work.
However, voices were raised saying there’s no actual proof of the guys getting on the planes. In response, seconds of airport video footage was released as proof of two of them passing security at Boston’s Logan Airport at just the right time. The inference of course is that it went to show that you could probably trust that all nineteen of the lads did likewise for their flights. Except a watchful eye spotted that the security area on the tape was that of Portland Airport in Maine, an hour from Boston. Even more worryingly, nearly half of the alleged hi-jackers began showing up very much alive in the weeks and months following, as reported by Newsweek magazine and the BBC for example. More worrying still, none of the names of the nineteen appeared on any of the four flight manifests for those flights meaning they could not have got on any of those flights. You cannot pass security unless you are on the flight manifest.
Then the FBI website was checked to confirm that Osama Bin Laden was the still the most wanted man in America, and he was. However, in the section dedicated to his crimes, 9/11 is not listed. A New York reporter got a statement from the FBI saying they could not prove he was involved. Bin Laden himself twice denied involvement on record, even before America invaded Afghanistan. Suspects arriving in Guantanamo Bay were routinely tortured until one broke and said Bin Laden did it. So, a confession under extreme duress was admitted as evidence, officially anyway.
The official conspiracy theory is that a well known nasty bloke thousands of miles away must have planned it and nineteen guys of his who were not registered on any of the flights, pulled it off for him. That’s a bit hard to take. Closer inspection of the nineteen yields the amazing fact that none of them could even fly a single engined Cessna. Yet on the day, three of the so-called hi-jacked planes performed complex turns and manoeuvres which even seasoned civilian and military pilots say they couldn’t do, and the fourth plane one went down like a stone we’re told.
The official version draws on cell phone recordings from passengers on the flights to their loved ones, detailing the problem they found themselves in. But in 2001, the technology wasn’t available to make cell phone calls from an airborne jetliner so the recordings cannot be what they purport to be. Then the two aircraft out of Logan and bound for the Twin Towers passed close to each other after which they disappeared for an half hour. All radio and radar contact ceased and there’s only two ways for that to happen. Either they were flown feet from the ground under the radar cover like jet fighters, or they landed somewhere and coincidently, the very point they crossed had a military airfield directly underneath it. None of this is even mentioned in the official version. It was glossed over until most people just assumed they took off, flew directly to New York and hit the buildings.
From then on, the official conspiracy theory relies on video footage we’ve all seen that at first glance, appeared understandable, even intuitive. But the sole video recording of the impact on the North Tower didn’t surface for several days afterwards though most of remember watching it on that day. But having been alerted to the first one, cameras were everywhere to see the South Tower impact and we did see that on that day, at least on screen anyway. I’ll return to the World Trade Centre later.
The Pentagon is the most heavily protected building in the world featuring nests of ground to air missile batteries all over its roofs. Missile sites are scattered in the lands around it also and it is festooned with hundreds of video security cameras every several feet. The airspace for miles around it is strictly prohibited and there are several aircraft bases all around it within easy intercept distance. They even knew, (apparently), that a hijacked plane was in the area and inbound and they already knew about the world trade and the fourth missing jet as well. Yet the official narrative would have you believe that they were caught completely with their pants down that morning.
The aircraft that was supposed to have hit is also worrying because it defied the laws of gravity in its official flight path. It was, we were told, traveling at 600MPH mere feet from the ground and it sheared street lamps moments before crashing into the Pentagon. There is a phenomenon called ‘ground effect’ whereby the proximity of terra firm pulls planes to it. At the right glide angle for a smooth landing this still applies but flying at high speed parallel to the ground they would simply have smashed down into it long before the building and that, we are told, miraculously didn’t happen. That was a first. Then Pilots for 9/11 have gone on record to say that a Boeing 757 could not possibly travel at 600MPH at low altitude because they just don’t have the power in the thicker air close to ground. They can barely achieve it in the thinner air above 30,000 feet. But the official version won’t deal with that. However, rattled by a chorus of demands for footage of the impact, a two-second tape was eventually released. All it did was to confirm that something hit that building but it wasn’t a plane whatever it was.
The fourth plane has a second conspiracy inside it. Here the official line is that brave passengers got together and conspired to storm the cockpit, thus causing it to go out of control and crash down in a field in Shanksville. The problem here was the first responder to the crash site was the county coroner for the region. Interviewed on local TV just after he examined the site he said, “I ceased being a coroner only minutes after I arrived. There were no bodies, no body parts,no luggage or no sign that was any human life on whatever crashed back there.” Indeed other witnesses concurred as did the video footage. Something dug a twenty foot hole in that field but it wasn’t an aircraft. Are you still convinced four aircraft were hijacked and if so, are you satisfied it was done by the nineteen accused?
Lets go back to New York and a history lesson on the World Trade Center. It was a complex of seven large buildings of which the twin towers were the standout architectural features. But buildings three, four, five, six and seven were also destroyed on the day though I bet you know little if anything of those. The towers featured a revolutionary design when the plans were unveiled. Up to that point, steel structured skyscrapers featured a steel core as the load bearing element for the buildings. The core was of ‘weapons grade and thickness’ steel built as a tube right up through the center and usually housing the lifts. All of the trusses and concrete were routed back to the load bearing core for support. Only three steel skyscrapers in history have ever been brought down by fire and all three happened on 9/11! It hasn’t happened since either.
WT 1 & 2 though had a strengthened inner core and then a whole new concept outer core as well, so they had not one, but two load bearing structures built in. The outer core was designed in a thick mesh of weapons grade steel from ground to sky and it was this impenetrable structure we are told that two hollow flying tubes went through like a hot knife through butter. If that were even conceivably true, and we all did see the plane-like holes in the buildings, then you would expect the broken mesh to have been forced inwards. But it wasn’t. Close-up footage from helicopters clearly show the broken mesh forced outwards. Something blew it out, not in.
Then Newton’s Third Law was broken by the collapse of both buildings. They came down at free fall speed, a fact acknowledged by the official conspiracy theory, (The NIST Report). As engineers for 9/11 point out, there had to be no structure standing beneath the very top floor for that to happen. In other words, the building and load apparatus below the fire area mustn’t have been there at all and what you saw on TV was an optical illusion. Because for free fall, the only resistance to gravity must be the surrounding air. For the official pancake theory to be true, the collapse would to have been staggered and taken 20 to 30 seconds at a push. In reality, the top ten or twenty floors would have skewed left or right and toppled over, leaving the undamaged 70 or 80 stories still standing. But even that is stretching things and is also highly unlikely. What is likely however is that the firemen would have got the few cool burning fires under control and those buildings would be there today unless something else happened.
Now lets talk forensic investigation. Crime scenes are routinely cordoned off to allow investigators sift through and gather evidence. Forensic samples are collected for the lab to try to determine the guilty party or parties. This is always done for a murder and even some robberies. On that Sept.11th, the biggest crime in American history was committed and then the crime scene was immediately cleared of all the evidence. No forensics were permitted and no investigation allowed either. The humanitarian search for survivors, and then human remains, ran in tandem with the trucking of the evidence to yards on dockside. There it was craned onto ships bound for China. All forensic evidence was simply removed and destroyed by the American Government. It was almost unimaginable but it happened. The official report put the site evacuation down to health and safety in a brief mention.
Lastly in this section is what was left after the falls. If the official conspiracy theory is to be believed then a collapse of 110 stories would have left many stories of rubble underneath. This rubble would have contained huge steel beams, hundreds of tons of concrete slabs and thousands of examples of office furnishing including battered filing cabinets, broken desks & chairs, telephones & computers and human remains in one state or another. But no! The steel beams were in pieces, thousands of tons of concrete were pulverized into dust and scattered all over Manhattan, no office furnishings were found and bits and pieces of humans were found years later on the tops of skyscrapers a long way away from the World Trade Centre. In a strange way, the video footage did NOT support the official conspiracy theory at all and even worse, it proved it wrong.
The First Unofficial Conspiracy Theory:
This conspiracy theory also has Bin Laden and his merry men pulling off the attacks but it claims it was known about in advance by the authorities and they decided to allow it to happen. It is based on CIA and FBI whistleblowers who came forward afterwards and claimed that several foreign intelligence services had warned their agencies in the weeks and months prior to the event, even suggesting locations and names of the likely participants. The question though is who knew and why did they do nothing. Dark mutterings can be heard of a secret Government inside Government. Stories of inter-departmental rivalries are mentioned in relation to this theory. Powerful vested interests who wished to see America spend big money on wars is another explanation offered. The question we need to ask ourselves about this theory is, is it just too impossible to believe? Could those in power really be that corrupt? You can ponder that a moment and indeed you’ll have to ponder it again for the third conspiracy theory.
The Second Unofficial Conspiracy Theory:
This is the inside job one which seeks to classify 9/11 as a false flag operation by elements in America as yet unnamed. Names are thrown about alright but the evidence is circumstantial and without solid proof, no cast iron case can be made. Much like the official theory regarding Bin Laden and the 19 others then. But it centers around the apparent controlled demolition of WT 1,2 & 7 because they didn’t come down due to plane impacts or fire but they did come down. WT7 wasn’t even hit by a plane yet came down anyway and in exactly the same manner hours later and it was 48 stories tall. Incidentally, buildings 3, 4, 5, & 6 were crushed by the collapse of the larger twins but intriguingly, building six had its complete core blown out before the crush. It was an empty shell before before they knocked the outer walls to clear the site.
WTC 6 was an eight-story building that stood directly northeast of the North Tower (WTC 1). Its tenants consisted almost entirely of federal government agencies. It housed the offices of 760 employees of the U.S. Customs service. WTC 5 was a nine-story building that stood east of the North Tower (WTC 1). The building had two dozen tenants, with its fourth through ninth floors being occupied almost entirely by Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse, First Boston, and government agencies. WTC 4 was a nine-story building that stood directly east and southeast of the South Tower (WTC 2). The building had six tenants, with most of its floors being occupied by Deutsche Bank and the New York Board of Trade. And WTC 3 was also known as the World Trade Center Hotel, the New York Marriott Hotel, and the Vista Hotel. It was almost completely destroyed in the 9/11/01 attack. Like all of the World Trade Center buildings, it was a steel-framed building. It had 22 stories above ground and six stories below grade. It stood immediately south of the North Tower and west of the South Tower. If you are looking for any of them today they’re in pieces somewhere in China with the other three.
What makes it all more mysterious is that the original design and build of WT1&2 was so meticulous and new in their day, (1970). In a documentary of the planning and building of these two mammoth towers you will learn why an aircraft impact or office fires could never have led to their collapse. Called, “Building the World Trade Center Towers,” it is worth the hour to understand the level of meticulous design and planning entailed.
Let’s pause and look at some of the FACTS for a moment:
At the time of the attacks on the WTC the towers were involved in an ongoing upgrade of the fireproofing and the very floors on which this work was completed were the floors the planes hit
It took 440 days of independent pressure by groups to get the Bush Admin to allow an investigation
Chairman of the 9/11 commission, Lee Hamilton & Thomas Keen said, “The commission was set up to fail,”
Max Clelend, one of the 9/11 commissioners resigned from the commission in disgust calling it a national scandal
Senior Council for the 9/11 Commission John Farmer said, “At a level of the Government at some time there was an agreement not to tell the truth about 9/11”
They concluded that witnesses from the Pentagon lied to them and considered taking criminal charges against them
Ten days after 9/11, plans to invade seven countries were leaked to four-star general Wesley Clarke. Iraq Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, Iran and Afganistan
Asked whether there would ever be a formal investigation into the part played by Larry Silverstein, Senator John Kerry admitted that those who brought Building & down, did so in a controlled fashion.
Wally Miller – Coronor – Shanksville, Pensilvania said, “I have not to this day seen a single drop of blood”
The official version of the events of 9/11 were left to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, (NIST), and theirs is the report that is accepted as the correct version of the events that took place that day. However, published on 14 Mar 2017, this film created in August of 2016, a former employee of NIST began looking into the reports his agency had released years earlier on the collapse of the World Trade Center. What he found shook him to the core. In this poignant half-hour interview, Peter Michael Ketcham tells his story of discovering that the organization where he had worked for 14 years had deliberately suppressed the truth about the most pivotal event of the 21st century. Through his willingness to look openly at what he failed to see in front of him for 15 years, Mr. Ketcham inspires us to believe that we can all muster the courage to confront the truth — and, in so doing, finally heal the wounds of 9/11.
There is much more you could learn and it is all out there, free to view and a lot of it fairly zany too. But what cannot be denied is that the US Government-inspired official report on the events is just impossible to believe and the events could not have unfolded as they would have us believe. After that though, we are all in muddy waters. Fifty-three years after john F. Kennedy was murdered we are no closer to knowing the truth about Dallas that day. I most certainly do not know what really took place in America on 9/11 but I do know what didn’t happen. Each of us around the world wherever we were on the day have only the many many hours of video footage to go on to make an educated guess. Years later though we have the analysis of the then administration as the official/accepted version and the newer scientific analysis from worried independent sources that show it isn’t correct because it couldn’t be.
If it were a relatively trivial matter then why would you be bothered. But because it has shaped our world ever since and given us Muslim terrorists in Europe, war all over the Middle East and nuclear tension with Russia and China, it becomes vital to find the truth.
Oddly enough, those campaigning to know call themselves, “Truth Seekers”. Are you willing to be one of them?
