State of the Notion -- 9/11
29 March 2005

"America had detailed plans to "roll back" al-Qa'eda and capture
Osama bin Laden a year before the September 11 attacks. But no action
was taken, first by Bill Clinton as president, then by the incoming
administration, amid political and bureaucratic squabbles."[1] "A
$200-million covert military program to aid beleaguered anti-Taliban
guerrillas in Afghanistan,...developed after repeated CIA attempts to
capture or kill Osama bin Laden had come to naught, was finalized
Sept. 10 and was awaiting President Bush's approval when the suicide
skyjackers crashed commercial airliners into the Pentagon and World
Trade Center. Officials said the plan, known as a national security
presidential directive, was viewed as an extension of secret CIA
operations already underway in and around Afghanistan, rather than a
first-time effort to attack Bin Laden."[2] "Niaz Naik, a former
Pakistani Foreign Secretary, was told by senior American officials in
mid-July [2001] that military action against Afghanistan would go
ahead by the middle of October. Mr Naik told the BBC that at the
meeting the US representatives told him that unless Bin Laden was
handed over swiftly America would take military action to kill or
capture both Bin Laden and the Taleban leader, Mullah Omar."[3]

"Timothy McNiven, an outspoken critic of the President's handling of
9/11 and a 29-year U.S. Defense Department operative still under
contract with the government, [says] his military unit way back in
1976 devised a mock terrorist attack of the Twin Towers exactly like
what occurred on 9/11. [McNiven] claims his unit was ordered to
create the "perfect terrorist plan" using commercial airliners as
weapons and the Twin Towers as their target. The study, commissioned
to C-Battery 2/81st Field Artillery, U.S. Army, stationed in
Strassburg, Germany in 1976, specifically devised the scenario of the
Twin Towers being leveled by Middle Eastern terrorists using
commercial airliners and even plastic box cutters to bypass

Since 9/11 there have been claims that airline records were doctored
to match the official version of events. According to Gerard Holmgren
(, prior to the doctoring, "a
search of the [Bureau of Transportation Statistics] database show
that no such flight as AA11 took place on Sept 11 2001. A search of
the database also shows there was no such flight as AA77 that day. On
that day, UA 175 was assigned to a plane with the tail number N612UA.
According to a search of the FAA aircraft registry that plane is
still registered and valid, so it didn't crash anywhere. The BTS
records tell us that UA 93 on Sept 11 had the tail number N519UA.
According to the FAA aircraft registry records that plane is still
registered too."[5] Autopsies reveal that there were no Arabs on
flight AA77.[6]

Several videos are circulating depicting objects other than those in
the official version hitting the North Tower and the Pentagon.[7] The
Pentagon video and related information are quite disturbing in that
they make it almost plausible that a jetliner didn't strike the
building, like the utter lack of airplane debris. "The complexity and
precision of the approach maneuver are nearly impossible to reconcile
with the official account that the plane was piloted by Hani Hanjour,
an incompetent pilot of even single-engine prop-planes."[8] The North
Tower video shows an object resembling something more akin to an old
Lightning Bug Reconnaissance Drone striking the building rather than
a jetliner.[9]

"Reported only in a Portuguese newspaper, The Portugal News Weekend
Edition (May 8, 2002), a group of US pilots deliberated non-stop for
72 hours in an independent analysis of the 911 story. The inquiry
stated, "The so-called terrorist attack was in fact a superbly
executed military operation carried out against the USA, requiring
the utmost professional military skill in command, communications,
and control.""[10]

"Van Romero, vice president for research at New Mexico Institute of
Mining and Technology says the collapse of the twin towers resembled
those of controlled implosions used in planned demolition. "My
opinion is, based on the videotapes, that after the airplanes hit the
World Trade Center there were some explosive devices inside the
buildings that caused the towers to collapse," Romero said. A
demolition expert, Romero is a former director of the Energetic
Materials Research and Testing Center at Tech, which studies
explosive materials and the effects of explosions on buildings,
aircraft and other structures."[11]

Personally, September 11 reminds me of Pearl Harbor. "There are
numerous accounts of actions by Roosevelt and his top armed forces
advisors, which reveal they were not only aware of an attack by
Japan, but also they were planning on it, and instigating that
attack. On 7 October 1940, Lieutenant Commander Arthur H. McCollum,
head of the Far East desk of the Office of Naval Intelligence, wrote
the eight-action memo. This memo outlined eight different steps the
United States could do that he predicted would lead to an attack by
Japan on the United States. The day after this memo was giving [sic]
to Franklin D. Roosevelt, he began to implement these steps. By the
time that Japan finally attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor on
7 December 1941, all eight steps had occurred (Willey, Mark. "Pearl
Harbor Mother of all Conspiracies." 13 Mar. 2001)."[12] "Pearl Harbor
was the only way, leading officials felt, to galvanize the reluctant
American public into action."[13]

There is also a similarity to 1930's Germany. "The Reichstag fire, a
key event in German history, and the steps that followed en suite
leading to the Nazi dictatorship of Adolf Hitler, provide remarkable
precedents for what occurred in the United States on 9/11 and since.
The fire that consumed the German parliament building on the night of
February 27, 1933, is widely believed, according to Encyclopedia
Britannica, to have been contrived by the newly formed Nazi
government to turn public opinion against its opponents and allow it
to assume emergency powers.

The day after the burning of the Reichstag, the government headed by
Adolf Hitler enacted a decree for the Protection of the People and
the State. Hitler's emergency decree dispensed with all
constitutional protection of political, personal, and property
rights. Likewise, a month after 9/11 the U.S. Congress passed,
without even reading, similar emergency legislation: the Bush
administration's USA PATRIOT Act of 2001. The pre-prepared massive
security act's long title is "Uniting and Strengthening America by
Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct
Terrorism. Within a month of the Reichstag fire, on March 23, 1933,
the parliament passed the Enabling Act, whereby its legislative
powers were transferred to Hitler's Reich Cabinet.

"Another parallel is seen in the way George W. Bush and Hitler came
to power. Bush obtained the presidency in 2001 through a Supreme
Court decision after a flawed and un-counted election, while Hitler
secured the German chancellorship through elections in November 1932
in which the Nazi Party failed to win an outright majority.

"Like Nazi Germany of 1933, American newsstands today carry a
mainstream magazine dedicated to pushing the government's truth of
9/11 while viciously smearing independent researchers as extremists
who peddle fantasies and make poisonous claims. The magazine pushing
the government's 9/11 propaganda, Popular Mechanics (PM), is
published by the Hearst family. Its March cover story, Debunking 9/11
Lies, has been exposed by credible researchers to contain numerous
distortions and flawed conclusions. American Free Press revealed that
Benjamin Chertoff, the 25-year-old senior researcher who authored the
9/11 article, is related to Michael Chertoff, the new Secretary of
the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The PM article illustrates
how a propaganda method, used by dictatorships, is now being employed
by the U.S. government: controlling mainstream media outlets to
promote its version of 9/11.

"The actions of Michael Chertoff concerning the events of 9/11, the
non-investigation that followed, the USA PATRIOT Act, and the
propaganda being disseminated in PM, are strikingly similar to
actions attributed to the Nazi ministers Joseph Goebbels and Hermann
Gvring [sic].

"In the months leading up to the Chertoff article in PM, a brutal
take-over occurred at the magazine. Since the purge,...PM readers
have noticed that government propaganda has replaced scientific
writing. A letter to the editor...says, I think you guys are just
another tool in the government's propaganda machine."[14]

The government's propaganda machine isn't just limited to
9/11. "Recent maneuvers by the Bush administration should make all of
us stand up and take notice. On March 13 [2005], the New York Times
blew the story wide open with a front page article documenting
widespread government efforts to create official "video news
releases" that are cloaked as real news and broadcast to millions of
unsuspecting Americans."[15] "The White House, intent on continuing
to crank out "video news releases" that look like television news
stories, has told government agency heads to ignore a Government
Accountability Office memo criticizing the practice as illegal

"Despite the cascade of criticism in the media and elsewhere, the
Bush team continues to manipulate the press. They intend to produce
more video news releases to build support for Bush's Social Security,
education, Medicare, anti-drug and other plans. Already, State
Department, Defense Department, Transportation Security
Administration and Agriculture Department video segments have been
beamed over hundreds of local TV stations. All told, at least 20
federal agencies have quietly used this tactic to cloak the
administration's messages as objective television news. And it's all
done at the taxpayers' expense.

"Without popular dissent, an emboldened White House will continue to
throw up obstacles to full disclosure. It is now up to the public to
do what our elected officials are unwilling or unable to: pressure
our government to exert proper legal scrutiny of possible White House
propaganda crimes."[17]


So what did happen on September 11, 2001? Did a charismatic Islamic
extremist front history's worst terrorist attack on US soil or was it
carefully orchestrated by a "shadow government", American or
otherwise? The facts involving 9/11 are so convoluted and obfuscated
that critical analysis is virtually impossible given the State
Propaganda Machine. The only way the world will possibly know the
truth is if the government comes clean, including the release of
information they confiscated, like video tape surveillance from
businesses near the Pentagon including a rooftop hotel camera and a
gas station camera.

I remember waking that day and turning on the tube only to witness
something abhorrently disturbing: the twin towers ablaze, played over
and over ad nauseam. Interspersed was footage of the Pentagon on
fire -- the fire trucks parked on neatly cut grass just feet from
impact -- and later that fateful cellphone call from someone on the
plane that crashed in the clearing: "Let's roll."

Nothing could have better prepared Americans to accept immediate
retaliation -- the target of which, while concurrently obvious and
yet vague, has provided us with the engrossing goose hunt that it has
become: Bin Laden is still at large! While Osama may have approved of
the attacks and even sponsored them, there is controvery as to
whether "the smoking gun" tape is actually Bin Laden or a body double.
[18] Whatever the case, 9/11 gave George W Bush the rationalle to
attack not only Afghanistan but also Iraq, and everyone knows his
premise of Iraq having "weapons of mass destruction" turned out to be

People historically have been quick to go to war when they feel
they've been wronged. If 9/11 was conjured up by military analysts
decades before wouldn't be surprising to me. But we'll never know,
will we?
