The 9/11 Commission co-chairs claim that they were misled, perhaps deliberately, by the Bush administration and Pentagon brass. Because 911 was an act of mass murder overtly covered up by the Bush administration, the many lies by Bush amount to more than mere obstructions of justice or cover ups. They amount to high treason –a mechanism by which this administration seized power unconstitutionally. Holes in Bush’s theories are holes in Bush’s theories. Lack of evidence in support of Bush does not refute his critics who point them out. Bush’s many lies and overt efforts to obstruct justice, it is hoped, will bring about the ‘controlled demolition’ of this illegal and illegitimate regime.
Instead of making a big scene and dropping a bombshell so-to-speak, the commission ‘compromised’ and deferred to the justice department so that it could pursue criminal investigations.
Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon’s initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.
Suspicion of wrongdoing ran so deep that the 10-member commission, in a secret meeting at the end of its tenure in summer 2004, debated referring the matter to the Justice Department for criminal investigation, according to several commission sources. Staff members and some commissioners thought that e-mails and other evidence provided enough probable cause to believe that military and aviation officials violated the law by making false statements to Congress and to the commission, hoping to hide the bungled response to the hijackings, these sources said.
As we are all well aware, criminal charges were never made and it looks like interest in pursuing ‘justice’ wasn’t a top priority for the Department of Justice.
The panel agreed to a compromise, turning over the allegations to the inspectors general for the Defense and Transportation departments, who can make criminal referrals if they believe they are warranted, officials said.”We to this day don’t know why NORAD [the North American Aerospace Command] told us what they told us,” said Thomas H. Kean, the former New Jersey Republican governor who led the commission. “It was just so far from the truth. . . . It’s one of those loose ends that never got tied.”
Liberals have been shouting the Bush Administration for some time now. In fact, the hatred for our administration is so strong that Republicans had to concoct rhetoric in order to deal with the anger. “BDS” short for Bush Derangement Syndrome is all that the GOP die-hards could come up with to combat the allegations of impropriety and lawlessness that best characterizes President Bush and his administration of bandits. —Did the Pentagon Lie To 9/11 Commission?
I recently posted NTSB data indicating that Flight 77 never dropped below 273 feet after take off and could not, therefore, have crashed into the Pentagon! Damien followed up with NTSB data contradicting every Bush administration statement with regard to Flight 93, another mysterious crash characterized by the lack of airliner wreckage. [See: NTSB Flight Data: Official ‘Explanation’ of Flight 93 is a Criminal Fraud!; NTSB Flight Data: Flight 77 Could Not Have Crashed into the Pentagon]
Pilots for 9/11 Truth is an organization of aviation professionals and pilots throughout the globe who have gathered together for one purpose. We are committed to seeking the truth surrounding the events of the 11th of September 2001. Our main focus concentrates on the four flights, maneuvers performed and the reported pilots. We do not offer theory or point blame at this point in time. However, we are focused on determining the truth of that fateful day based on solid data and facts — since 9/11/2001 is the catalyst for many of the events shaping our world today — and the United States Government doesn’t seem to be very forthcoming with answers or facts. Pilots for 911 Truth
Damien, a regular contributor to The Existentialist Cowboy, has put together an exhaustive survey of disturbing holes in the official theories concerning Flight 93 which we have been expected to believe crashed in PA.
The evidence discrepancies from Flight 77 are echoed in the absurdities of Flight 93. This from Pilots for 911 Truth:
1. The NTSB Flight Path Animation approach path and altitude does not support observations.
2. All Altitude data on the northern approach contradicts witnesses published by the New York Times.
3. Witness observations of approach path contradict northern approach as described by Popular Mechanics and the US Govt. Several witnesses observed the aircraft approaching from southeast over Indian Lake and from the south prior to witnessing explosion. Parts found in New Baltimore, 8 miles southeast of crater is a direct contradiction to the northern approach claimed by the US Govt.
4. Environmental Protection Agency reports no soil contamination of jet fuel after testing 5,000-6,000 yards of earth including 3 ground wells. Smoke plume photographed by a witness does not suggest a jet fuel rich explosion.
5. Impact angle according to Flight Data Recorder does not support an almost vertical impact as the govt story and crater suggests.
That’s right, the flight data recorder has the plane impacting upside down at 40 degrees to the horizontal. You could Google all day and never find an image showing where the huge tail hit the ground! You will only ever see vertical impact photos. The only photo shows a smoke plume more consistent with a smaller ordinance explosion. There are no heavy kerosene fumes filling the sky. According to FDR data there was 17.01 tons (5,500 gals) of fuel left at time of impact. Yet the EPA found no ground contamination from jet fuel. Unbelievable!
“We (were) literally surrounded by debris, and there’s a very strong odor of scorched earth,” witness Jim Parsons reported. “It doesn’t smell like jet fuel, it smells like … How do you describe it? Burned earth. It smells like burned earth.” – Pittsburgh Channel (09/11/01)
The impact hole is 75′ wide and the aircraft is 125′ feet wide. (See also here)
The volume of debris is too small. The only photos released by the authorities showing small debris. Multiple witnesses at the Shanksville site reported on the lack of debris. The FBI claims that it recovers 95 percent of the plane and sent it on to United Airlines. That would be about 60 tons of plane debris. I defy anyone to produce evidence that 60 tons of plane debris was taken from Shanksville or forwarded to UA. Lies!
Somerset County Coroner Wallace Miller reported that they had found “unspecified human remains and enough minuscule pieces of plane debris to fill one-third of a dumpster.” That’s right, 1/3 of a dumpster! This dumpster!
The “recovered” remains, allegedly from Fl93, are anomalous and are suggestive of evidence tampering. — A terrorist passport found in the streets of New York that “survived” the WTC attacks and a Koran and materials recovered from Mohammed Atta’s car all appear to be staged evidence, as does the unmarked red bandanna and terrorist driver’s license recovered at Shanksville. When 200 airline seats are totally destroyed you don’t expect to find unmarked red bandannas and bibles!
The human remains (600 lbs) does not compare with the passenger weights (4 tons). Modern, high temperature crematoria take 2 hours to burn bodies yet we are expected to believe that 4 tons of human remains disappeared (“vaporised”) in an instant leaving only 150- 600lbs of tissue shreds. The temperatures were simply not high enough to dispose of that volume of human remains in such a small time frame. If the bodies burned above ground they would have left a recognizable offensive smell (burnt tissue like at a BBQ) that would have been noticed just like at other aircraft crash sites. Carbon based objects such as humans, luggage and seating require oxygen to burn. If they were burned above ground they would have produced larger amounts of smoke than was seen. Had they passed into the ground they would not have burned because there was no oxygen; they might have been shredded, but not consumed by fire. So if the seats burned above ground then 200 seat frames would be there somewhere. They’re not. Instead, we have this.
Officially, the largest piece found of Fl 93 was a seven-foot-long piece of the fuselage skin, including four windows. Given that the wings are 125′ wide with a 40′ high tail then that’s a load of baloney right there!
There is no verifiable evidence chain of custody on the debris, human remains or FDR.
The FBI refused to allow either the FAA or NTSB carry out investigations required of them by law and which they had undertaken as standard procedure for ALL previous aircraft crashes occuring in the US over many decades. The FBI did NOT carry out any forensic evaluation of the crash nor permit anyone else to do so. That’s a profoundly unprofessional course of action given that one caller from Fl 93 late in the flight said a bomb had possibly blown up in the plane.
Neither the NTSB or the FAA handled the evidence, only the FBI. Isn’t that their job? — yes it is, but they have no legal authority to prohibit, hinder or obstruct legally mandated inquiries by the FAA and the NTSB that should have taken place. They were forbidden from doing so. The FBI also had clear obligations in regard to the handling of evidence which they failed to fulfill. The usual investigative procedures in regard to flight crashes and the handling of evidence were not followed in regard to 911.
Whatever happened at Shanksville, the official 911 account is baloney! In Aug 2006 a Russian plane, almost identical in size to Fl93, crashed in Siberia. They recovered 140 bodies and huge amounts a debris. But nothing like that at Shanksville.
Damien’s report is a damning critique and proof that the Bush cabal cover stories about Flight 93 violate the laws of physics and “Occam’s Razor’. Bush’s cover stories raise infinitely more questions than his theories have been able to explain .
Any theory that raises more questions than it explains must be discarded.
The FBI released the following footage, apparently an effort to put to rest ‘outlandish’ conclusions based upon NTSB flight data indicating that Flight 77 NEVER reached an altitude less than 273 feet since its first ascent upon take-off! Now –keep in mind that this FBI footage is supposed to put to rest those ‘outlandish conspiracy theories’ that Bush warned us about. Please keep in mind that this video is not intended to create even more ‘outlandish conspiracy theories’, though, I am sure that had been the result. Therefore, after watching the following video, please resist the urge to call up the FBI while yelling FRAUD, FRAUD, FRAUD!!!
The video was requested by Flight77.info, a group seeking 911 information that the government has been withholding. A statement from the group notes that the ‘video does not …show the plane in flight.’
I would venture to say that Flight 77 is not visible in the video simply because it was not video taped ‘crashing into the Pentagon. It was not video taped crashing into the Pentagon because it never crashed into the Pentagon.
My assertion is not merely a challenge to the Bush administration to put up or shut up, it is consistent with “official” flight 77 data released to Pilots for 911 Truth in response to their FOIA request.
Flight 77 flight data indicates that Flight 77 was at an altitude of some 273 feet above the Pentagon at the time of a reported “fire ball”. One is, therefore, justified in demanding that the Bush administration release every photograph that was made of the Pentagon from every security camera on September 11, 2001. Only two ‘pictures’ have been released –a grainy indistinguishable GIF and an even worse video above. By stonewalling this issue, Bush implies his own guilt. What is he covering up by his refusal to release ALL photographs?
One of the most damning critiques Bush’s official theory comes from, Heather Thomas, author of Trophies: A Novel:
There was no fuselage at the Pentagon. There was none that you could check out. They said it vaporized, and yet they produced bodies saying that they didn’t vaporize. You can vaporize a two-ton engine?–Author, Trophies
Thomas is absolutely correct. In fact, steel is used for airliner engines precisely because it will not melt or –worse –completely vaporize in a kerosene fire. Last time, I checked flight was still possible! If Bush were correct, it would not be! Engines for jet aircraft are still made of STEEL because steel will not melt by a kerosene combustion. That’s how engines work and they would not work if engines melted at kerosene fire temperatures. If you can still buy a ticket at Newark and fly to Los Angeles, Bush is a liar.
Thomas saw though this gaping hole while pompous network pooh-bahs, ‘commentators, and pundits got suckered (or paid off) into believing and propagating the pernicious and evil myth that you can burn kerosene inside a 757 engine but the same aircraft will vaporize completely in a kerosene fire!
Initially, Bush defenders denied the presence of ‘molten steel’ at WTC. Later, when it was clear that ‘molten steel’ was absolutely necessary to support their mumbo jumbo, their superstition that both towers collapsed into their own footprints due to fire damage, they embraced molten steel. It was the only way to get the steel to melt. The story had to sound credible. For these people –sounding plausible is more important than truth.
Later, when it was made abundantly clear, that never in recorded history has a kerosene fire melted steel, the story was changed yet again. The ‘steel’ was only ‘weakened to the point of collapse, we were told. But what point is that? It doesn’t matter because the Bush liars were trying to have it both ways again. The new cover story did not explain: 1) professional firefighter testimony that molten steel was in fact observed; 2) it does not explain video tapes of what can only be molten steel; 3) it does not explain video tapes of molten steel flowing down the sides of still un-collapsed towers!The cat –the verified presence of molten steel –was already out of the bag.
It was time for another cover story, another PR offensive. Bush defenders –in yet another version –cried foul. This time they took aim at 911 first responders. Firefighters, they said, mistook molten aluminum for molten steel, an insult to working, professional firefighters whose testimony would most certainly be considered ‘expert’ in any courtroom. I rather think that the testimony of professional fire fighters with regard to what they saw is infinitely more credible than that of a flack somewhere on K-street or inside the White House –a din of iniquity if there ever was one.
Thus Bush defenders were caught trying to paper over yet another glaring hole in Bush’s official lie with yet another version designed to plug up holes in the dike. Even if it were true, there is no evidence in support of a ‘new’ theory that heat from melting aluminum is sufficient to melt over 100 stories of steel cladding, steel reinforced walls, a tightly woven steel core –the existence of which officials tried to hide!
The 911 Commission, for example, failed to mention that in the towers of the WTC was a very densely re-enforced steel core. As far as the 911 Commission report is concerned, the ‘core’ just didn’t exist. This is a pathetic picture of murderers, liars and felons desperately trying to come up with a credible cover story —but, alas, too late!
Most recently, NIST has come up with still another ‘version’ intended to paper over the myriad of flaws and bullshit to be found in the official narratives. They have invented an entirely new phenomenon — ‘heat expansion’ –to explain what is best explained with just two words: controlled demolition! What is the term ‘heat expansion’ supposed to mean in this context. If you heat the air in a balloon, it expands and the balloon rises. The liars at the NIST have failed to demonstrate the relevance of hot air balloons to WTC –an instance of undeniable controlled demolition. The building in question is, of course, WTC 7 said by Silverstein himself to have been pulled! I suggest the paid liars at NIST go take a hot air balloon ride. Hot air carried aloft by hot air. Poetic justice.
Silverstein Properties (collected large insurance payout due to the attacks of 911) was one of the contractors NIST depended on to get to the truth in the investigation. Look at the NIST report here on page vii for contributors to the investigation. Talk about the fox guarding the hen house. Can you say “conflict of interest?” And how about all of NIST’s precious recommendations for future building safety?–What Really Happened: Surprise!! NIST concludes fire dropped WTC7 at free-fall into its own footprint
It looked like a controlled demolition because it was a controlled demolition. Re-writing the laws of physics is not allowed! Neo-cons may break and ignore the laws of this nation and the international treaties to which we are bound, but not even Bush may violate the laws of nature and physics.
If the WTC had been wired for a controlled demolition months before 911, the motive is a matter of public record: “the verdict in U.S. District Court in Manhattan was the latest twist in Mr. Silverstein’s efforts to turn his $3.5 billion insurance policy on the trade center complex into a $7 billion payout.”
The burden of proof is on Bush and a dwindling number of rats, many of whom are jumping ship. Let’s start with the co-chairs of the 911 Commission. Both have now dis-avowed the work of the commission.
They claim that they were misled by Bush and the Pentagon! They don’t believe it! Why should anyone believe it?
Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, PhD, U.S. Air Force (ret) was a Pentagon eye-witness. She is a former member of the staff of the Director of the National Security Agency. As a contributing author to the 2006 book 9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out, she wrote:
I believe the [9/11] Commission failed to deeply examine the topic at hand, failed to apply scientific rigor to its assessment of events leading up to and including 9/11, failed to produce a believable and unbiased summary of what happened, failed to fully examine why it happened, and even failed to include a set of unanswered questions for future research.It is as a scientist that I have the most trouble with the official government conspiracy theory, mainly because it does not satisfy the rules of probability or physics. The collapses of the World Trade Center buildings clearly violate the laws of probability and physics.
–Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, PhD, U.S. Air Force (ret), Twenty-five U.S. Military Officers Challenge Official Account of 9/11.
Kwiatkowski one in a long and growing list of equally intelligent, qualified, expert and articulate folk many of whom have literally driven a stake through the heart of Bush’s evil and treasonous lie. I might have picked her quote at random from among the throng which now makes up a growing chorus demanding that the crime of 911 be investigated and the perpetrators brought to trial and justice. You won’t have any trouble finding other outraged and patriotic Americans who will speak out against tyranny. It is a growing chorus of true skeptics who will tell you that Bush’s official conspiracy theory is a black hearted lie.
(CBS) President Bush took a few minutes during his trip to Europe Thursday to voice his opposition to establishing a special commission to probe how the government dealt with terror warnings before Sept. 11.Mr. Bush said the matter should be dealt with by congressional intelligence committees.
CBS News Correspondent Bill Plante reports that Mr. Bush said the investigation should be confined to Congress because it deals with sensitive information that could reveal sources and methods of intelligence. Therefore, he said, the congressional investigation is “the best place” to probe the events leading up to the terrorist attacks.
Over my long career in broadcasting and journalism, I have never seen a ‘leader’ –elected, appointed or otherwise –who did not oppose, obstruct, or, in other ways, interfere with investigations into their own regimes. In every instance, the obstruction is motivated by the desire to cover up crimes, destroy evidence, or, most generally, obscure the truth. In every instance, these activities are done not to protect the innocent. They are done to cover up the crime, to protect the guilty.
Bush’s excesses in office stem from the powers he assumed upon the pretext of 911. They include but are not limited to his numerous abrogations of the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights and habeas corpus, his assumption of dictatorial powers as evinced by his many ‘signing statements’, in fact, his rule by decree. It is all right out of Adolph Hitler’s play book. Until these crucial issues having to do with the very legitimacy of our government are addressed, the current election campaign is eyewash. I am waiting for Barack Obama to address the issue of nothing less than the legitimacy of this government.
Flight77.info says that it is trying to secure the release of about 80 videos that are related to the Pentagon crash. However, the Bush administration will not willingly release information or evidence that will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that no airliner crashed into the Pentagon.
An administration capable of crashing a missile into its own Pentagon with a careless, murderous disregard for human life is likewise capable of lying about the falls of the Twin Towers and WTC 7; it is capable of lying about WMD, it is capable of waging war upon the people of the United States itself. The waging of war against the people by the people’s own government is called high treason and traditionally, it requires the death penalty. King Charles I of England was beheaded for less egregious crimes than those which may now be charged to Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and very other co-conspirator inside the White House.
It would appear that the FBI is up to its ass in the cover up of 911. I suggest that the cover up of high treason is high treason. Congress should empower a special prosecutor to investigate Bush, the FBI, the Pentagon and the JD. The American people are left little choice but to effect not merely regime change but a sweeping purge, nothing less than the creation of a new government. A new broom sweeps clean! We may yet round up a enough traitors to fill up a football stadium.
This essential update from Goon Squad blogger and pilot –Greg Bacon:
Another aspect of this to consider is called the Wing in Ground effect or WIG.
WIG holds that large aircraft and a 757 is definitely large, can’t fly close to the ground because of all of the turbulence created by the aircraft’s wings.
A pilot would not be able to control a large aircraft flying that close to the ground, the turbulence kicked up by the wings would be hellish.
The jet would either have to land or gain altitude, it CAN NOT fly that close to the ground, its physically impossible.
–Greg Bacon, Pilot, Goon Squad
Of course, they could just make up a new term for this new twisting of the laws of physics, just like they made up a new term for the collapse of WTC, calling this new term “thermal expansion.”
Which, if you watched the NIST briefing /charade on the WTC collapse, is a term just for WTC 7, since it hadn’t happened before and may not happen again.And their explanation of just one beam causing the whole damned building to collapse is laughable.
Look at the pictures of WTC 6, which sustained damage from falling debris from WTC 1 or 2.
That building got nearly sawed in half by debris, yet it was still standing at the end of the day.
Is anybody at home in America?
Can we wake up before its too late?
Essential material from John Kaminski:
The hole in the Pentagon was not made by a jumbo jet. Damage to the building was simply not consistent with the size of the hole nor the absence of debris. At the supposed point of impact, a whole bank of windows remained unbroken and there were no marks on the lawn. No airplane debris (except what was planted on the lawn) nor remains of passengers were ever found.
The president has admitted that he continued to read a story to schoolchildren in a Florida school for 30 minutes after being informed that two planes had struck New York and that the nation was under attack. He has never explained this puzzling behavior, nor how he saw the first plane hit. It was never televised, only recorded by a French crew filming firemen in New York. In that film, the plane in question does not appear to be a passenger airliner.
The plane in Pennsylvania was shot down and broke apart in midair. No other explanation can account for the wreckage, which was spread over a six-mile area, or the eyewitness accounts that describe debris falling from the sky.
Cellphone calls cannot be made from airliners in flight that are not close to the ground. As research by Professor A. K. Dewdney has shown, the emotional conversations between hijacked passengers and others would not have been possible under conditions that existed at that moment. These calls were cynical fabrications, exploiting the distraught emotions of those who lost loved ones.
Radio communications from firefighters on the upper floors of the Trade Center towers clearly indicate that fires were under control and the structure was in no danger of collapsing.
These are merely a few of the deliberately false statements made by U.S. officials about 9/11. They provide crystal clear evidence that our president, his staff, and many legislators should be indicted on charges of treason, obstruction of justice and mass murder. Above all, these evil men should be removed from their positions of authority before they implement more of their moneymaking murder schemes like the one they are now perpetrating on the innocent people of Iraq.
Otherwise, we face a future of endless war abroad and merciless repression at home.
