9-11: America's Reichstag Fire
Five Years Later — Where Are We - Are We Any Safer? Of course not, that was never the intent.
On February 27, 1933, four weeks after Hitler was sworn in as Chancellor, the Reichstag building, Germany's parliament was destroyed in a fire supposedly set by a Dutch arsonist. He was not a lone arsonist and definitely not the arsonist responsible for the conflagration. He was of below average intelligence and easily duped and manipulated. On the evening of February 27th Karl Ernst, a former hotel bellhop who had become the Berlin S.A. leader, led a small detachment of storm troopers to the Reichstag, where they quickly scattered gasoline and self-igniting chemicals and then made their way quickly back to the palace by the way they had come (and underground passage from Goering's Reichstag Presidents Palace). Shortly after they departed Dutch Communist Marinus Van der Lubbe, with a passion for arson, made his way into the huge, darkened Reichstag, and to him an unfamiliar building, and set some small fires of his own. This feeble-minded pyromaniac was a godsend to the Nazis. He had been picked up by the S.A. a few days before after having been overheard in a bar boasting that he had attempted to set fire to several public buildings and that he was going to try the Reichstag next. The S.A. then ensured that he 'found' his way into the (Reichstag) that night. Two and a half minutes after he entered the great central hall was fiercely burning, the S.A. having started the blaze before leaving. He had only his shirt for tinder. Van der Lubbe was the patsy in the Reichstag fire and was promptly imprisoned the next day. He was later executed. Rudolph Diels, the Gestapo chief, added in an affidavit given during the 'investigation' that 'Goering knew exactly how the fire was to be started' and had ordered him 'to prepare, prior to the fire, a list of people who were to be arrested immediately after it'.
Using the excuse of 'Terrorism', that he had created, Hitler took full advantage of this 9/11-like calamity to whip up fear of the "terrorists" ("Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death." - Adolf Hitler) - in this case, Communist terrorists - and to impose legislation known as the 'Enabling Act' that 'temporarily' suspended civil liberties to deal with the 'terrorist' threat posed by Communists. The temporary emergency lasted until Germany was in ruins in 1945. The Germans, by and large, acquiesced. With sheepish submissiveness the German people accepted that, as a result of a fire, each one of them lost what little personal freedom and dignity was guaranteed by the constitution; as though it followed as a necessary consequence.... more than one of the German legislators had doubts about the official version, but few spoke up. Within months Hitler had sweeping gun legislation passed and confiscated all firearms with the exception of certain Nazi party members and military. The Germans were now enslaved.
"In Germany, the Nazis first came for the communists, and I did not speak up, because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak up, because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak up, because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I did not speak up, because I was not a Catholic. Then they came for me... and by that time, there was no one left to speak up for anyone."
- Martin Niemoeller, Pastor, German Evangelical (Lutheran) Church (1892-1984)
On September 11, 2001 multiple jet airliner aircraft were flown into the twin towers in the financial district in Manhattan, New York by various Arab nationals supposedly associated with the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization, reported to be commanded by Osama Bin Laden. For 35 minutes, from 8:15 AM until 9:05 AM, although widely known within the FAA and the Military that four planes have been simultaneously hijacked and taken off course, no one notifies the President of the United States. It is not until 9:30 AM that any Air Force planes are scrambled to intercept, but by then it is too late. This means the National Command Authority waited for 75 minutes before scrambling aircraft, even though it was known that four simultaneous hijackings had occurred -- an event that has never happened in history [CNN; ABC; MS-NBC; Los Angeles Times; New York Times] and in direct violation of ALL Military protocol. Aircraft were never to be allowed any closer than one mile to the twin towers, military jets typically being scrambled for intercept at five miles.
Using the excuse of 'Terrorism' that they had helped create, six months after the 9/11 attacks, as Hitler had done in 1933, the Bush administration took full advantage of the hysteria and fear, constantly whipped to a froth by the mainstream media puppets dancing on the ends of their strings, to rush the 'Patriot Act' into law, 'temporarily' suspending civil liberties to deal with the terrorist threat posted by Islamic fundamentalists. As the 'Enabling Act' did in Nazi Germany in 1933, the Patriot Act removed every one of our Constitutional and Civil rights/liberties and effectively enslaved the Nation. Most people just don't realize this because it is being exercised somewhat surreptitiously. Somewhat. If there is another 9/11 type incident, and there will be, Patriot II will be passed. What this really means is that the Patriot Act in full will be enforced. Among it's other provisions would be the removal of citizenship from convicted or 'suspected' terrorists, similar to the removal of German citizenship of German Jews, a key 'legal' step toward their expulsion to FEMA concentration/death camps (built and standing ready in many locations across America). Having read the Patriot Act in entirety, and looked at the statutes on the books of several States, anyone, that's ANYONE can now be deemed a suspected 'terrorist' and incarcerated and held indefinitely. Legislation of the nature of the 'Patriot Act' should have taken 1 1/2 years to write, not six months. This 'temporary emergency' brought on by 9/11, just as in the case of Germany, will last until America, and what's left of her Constitution, lies in ruins. Americans, like the Germans, by and large, have acquiesced. With sheepish submissiveness the American people have accepted that, as a result of the destruction of two towers in the financial district of New York under extremely suspect conditions, each one of them has lost what little personal freedom and dignity was guaranteed by the Constitution; as though it followed as a necessary consequence......
"Those that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety, and ultimately will have neither". Ben Franklin

***When deceit catches up with a Government, officials take refuge in propaganda. Witness the Bush and Blair Administrations.***
On 9/10/2006 a local New York radio station interviewed two FEMA employees. When asked what they were doing in town, one of them answered "oh, we are here for the disaster tomorrow". The interviewer sat bolt upright in his chair and asked, "what disaster"? The two FEMA employees ended the interview and hastily left.
Federal investigators have received evidence that some 2,000 + Middle Easterners in the New York area were warned ahead of time to stay out of the twin towers and out of lower Manhattan altogether on the morning of Sept. 11.
U.S. military intelligence experts, and the FBI, knew a domestic terrorist plot was about to spring to life in America. On September 10, 2001 the NSA intercepted two messages in Arabic between the suspected commander of the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks and the alleged chief hijacker, but did not share the information with other intelligence agencies. One message read: “Tomorrow is zero hour,” and the second: “The match begins tomorrow.” [New York Times, August 10, 2002; Reuters, June 19, 2002] On June 19, 2002, CNN reported the contents of these two National Security Agency intercepts. Other news outlets, including the Washington Post, also reported on the intercepts. [New York Times, August 10, 2002] They also knew that 'associates' of Osama bin Laden HAD boarded all the aircraft used in the attacks on the World Trade Center towers, according to several sources, but did nothing to stop them.
On September 10. 2001, "Enemy Number One", Bin Laden, was in a Pakistani military hospital in Rawalpindi receiving a dialysis treatment, courtesy of America's indefectible ally Pakistan, as confirmed by a report of CBS News and the Pakistani Military. Bin Laden had been rapidly and quitely spirited into the military hospital for this treatment. On that night, says a medical worker who wanted her identity protected, they moved out all the regular staff in the urology department and sent in a secret team to replace them. She says it was treatment for a very special person. Bin Laden could have easily been arrested on short notice. The U.S. Military, the CIA and the Bush Administration were well aware of his whereabouts. But, then, we would not have had an Osama Legend, which has fed the news chain as well as George W's speeches over the course of the last five years!!
On or about 9/10 former N.Y. Mayor Giuliani was told by Federal Agents that the WTC was going to collapse on 9/11.
A particularly urgent warning was received the night before the attacks, causing John Ashcroft and top Pentagon brass to suddenly cancel travel plans for the next morning, apparently because of 'sudden security concerns'. [Newsweek, 9/12/2001] “Why that same information was not available to the 266 people who died aboard the four hijacked commercial aircraft may become a hot topic on the Hill." [Newsweek, 9/13/2001] It has since been learned they were informed of the impending events of 9/11.
Radio France International offered details of allegations that terrorist suspect Osama bin Laden met with a CIA officer in the United Arab Emirates in July, 2001 in a Gulf hospital. There he received "precise information" about an imminent attack on the US and how and when it was to be conducted. According to the French daily, the agent met Bin Laden while he was being treated at the American Hospital in Dubai for a kidney infection by Dr. Terry Callahan, a specialist in kidney ailments and male infertility. The agent was subsequently recalled to Washington after he boasted to several friends that he had visited the Saudi terror mastermind who at that time was wanted for the bombings of US embassies in Africa and the attack on the destroyer Cole in Yemen. This report was confirmed by local Arab News sources.
United States and Taliban officials met secretly in Frankfurt almost a year before the September 11 attacks to discuss terms for the Afghans to hand over Osama bin Laden, according to a German television documentary. The U.S. ultimately refused the offer.
The CIA was given the first name and telephone number of an 9/11 hijacker more than two years before the attacks, the New York Times has said, and did nothing with the information.
The CIA tracked two suspected terrorists to an Al-Qaeda summit in Malaysia in January 2000, then looked on as they re-entered America and began preparations for September 11.
A two-time Pulitzer Prize winner by the name of Burns, working for the New York Times wrote an article that appeared on the Times's Web site Sept. 8, detailing Al-Qaeda warnings (apparently sent to him and several other journalists) of the 9/11 attacks. But Burns's prescient piece about Osama bin Laden never appeared in the newspaper, and the Times quickly expunged it from the electronic archives.
Condoleezza Rice was warned on Sept. 6 about an imminent terror attack by a former U.S. senator who headed up a blue-ribbon commission on terrorism. She disregarded the warning.
The U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE made a PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT on September 7th SAYING BIN LADEN WAS ABOUT TO ATTACK. "We are also concerned about information we received in May 2001 that American citizens may be the target of a terrorist threat from extremist groups with links to Osama Bin Laden's Al-Qaeda organization." They were ignored.
German police confirm an Iranian deportee phoned warnings from his deportation cell on 9/10 to Police in the U.S. to warn of the planned attack on the World Trade Centre. The FBI ignored him instructing NYPD to do the same.
A young Palestinian boy said to his teacher, "Do you see those two buildings?" he asked while pointing toward the World Trade Center. "They won't be standing there next week." It was noon, Sept. 6, 2001.
Authorities tracked numerous leads that many people, including members of the Arab-American community and students, heard rumors of the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington in the days leading up to the hijackings. What they have thus far discovered is that 'word on the street' in the days leading up to 9/11 was indeed that hijackings were to take place (on 9/11) and that aircraft were to be flown into the twin towers.
Jeb Bush declared Martial law in Florida, EXECUTIVE ORDER NUMBER 01-261, four days before September 11th, for no apparent reason.
George Bush Sr., as President, at the close of the Persian Gulf War, 1991, arranged to bring into the U.S. some four thousand Iraqi military officers, some from intelligence units, and their families. Some 550 of these officers became residents in Lincoln, Nebraska, AND TWO THOUSAND OF THEM took up residence in Oklahoma City. In a watered down story, CBS' "60 Minutes" program did a segment once on this about Lincoln, Nebraska but said NOTHING about the Iraqi military officers in Oklahoma City. The financial and other provisions for these officers and their families were arranged by the Elder Bush, and then quietly continued by Bill Clinton as President, and perpetuated by George Bush Jr. The arrangements included financial subsidies, housing, and employment for the Iraqi officers. The Elder Bush, Clinton, and George W. Bush all were in a position to know that the Iraqi officers that they provided for included double, or 'sleeper' agents as they are also known. The FBI Counter-Intelligence Division at no time was instructed to do anything about these (agents).
The CIA also was informed by Foreign intelligence agencies, French, British and Israeli prior to the "terrorist" attacks scheduled for 9/11 that highly skilled Iraqi pilots among the four thousand Iraqi officers now resident in the U.S., could possibly take over commercial flights, by retrieving the weapons concealed onboard, and then commandeering the flight deck. The weapons had been concealed by clean-up crew members who are generally not subject to airport security provisions.
As part of the targeting of the World Trade Center buildings, a group of surrogates for the Iraqi military officers reportedly spent considerable time within one of the buildings, with building security officers somehow oblivious of their presence. CIA top officials were informed of this and had prior knowledge of the purpose of the "terrorist" attacks - that being to effectively paralyze the financial infrastructure of the U.S.
One U.S. intelligence agency, Officials at the Chantilly, Virginia-based National Reconnaissance Office, had planned an exercise on the morning of 9/11/2001 in which an errant aircraft, a small corporate jet would crash into one of the four towers at the agency's headquarters building after experiencing a mechanical failure.....It was abruptly cancelled without explanation.
Wargames were scheduled and used as cover for the operational execution of 9/11. At least five if not six training exercises were in operation in the days leading up to and on the morning of 9/11. This meant that NORAD radar screens showed as many as 22 hijacked airliners at the same time. NORAD had beeThe 9/11 Truth Movement in Perspective —Skeptics Society, Fri Sep 15 10:51
