The official narrative of 9-11 was in many aspects a story that begged to be disbelieved. Parts of the official story ranged from the implausible to the incredible to the impossible. The inconsistencies and constantly-changing narrative, the contradictory facts, the avoidance of disclosure, the many inexplicable facts that were studiously ignored and avoided in official debates and in the US media, inevitably led many people to conclude that the events of 9-11 were indeed a state-sponsored terrorist event.
However, the debate has by no means died though it is ignored by the mass media. There are many organised groups in the US and in other countries that still publish further research to document their claims of a government conspiracy and massive cover-up. The members of these groups are by no means immature and uneducated; they are engineers, structural experts, aviation experts, professionals in controlled demolition, people with long careers in the CIA and the military, and much more. These are not people whose opinions and judgments can simply be dismissed as uninformed public speculation, and in fact a procession of world-level experts recently presented to a European court a litany of evidence contradicting the official narrative of this event. But even without this body of experts, any average citizen can identify many supposed facts that appear to make no sense and where the official story cannot possibly be true. Many books have been written on this subject.

Perhaps the first occasion to arouse suspicion was President George Bush sitting in an elementary school classroom, reading a story with the children, when an agent interrupted to inform him that the first aircraft had crashed into the World Trade Center. One would imagine that in such a case Bush would have immediately left that trivial PR event to attend to the implications of such a serious national disaster. But Bush had no visible reaction to the news. Instead, he remained in the classroom continuing with the story-reading for another ten to fifteen minutes, then remained in the school for a TV appearance for yet another 30 minutes after that. The immediate conclusion of many observers was that the agent was not giving Bush news of an unexpected and militarily-significant disaster, but was simply informing him that Stage One of his plan had been put into operation.

A second major cause of suspicion was that large airliners apparently crashed into the Pentagon in Washington and into a rural field in Pennsylvania while leaving no wreckage and with no evidence of either bodies or luggage. The first people on the scene at the both the Pentagon and the rural field, local police and firemen among others, all said the same thing before the authorities silenced their voices: “I kept thinking, ‘where are the bodies? Why aren’t there any bodies? And where is the luggage? Why isn’t there any luggage?”The same questions were raised about the total absence of wreckage; at these two locations, there simply wasn’t any collection of parts that appear at every plane crash. There was nothing.At the Pentagon, there was a small wheel and a small piece of sheet metal, and almost nothing else, and in the rural field there was a small collection of rubbish, but nothing relating to an aircraft crash. Multiple suspicions were raised, and books have been written, on this topic of large passenger airliners crashing but leaving absolutely no debris of any kind.
A passport, belonging to Satam al-Suqami, one of the terrorists on bord Flight 11, was found moments before the World Trade Center 2 (South Tower) collapsed and given to a detective from the NYPD. The passport was recovered by NYPD Detective Yuk H. Chin from a male passerby in a business suit, about 30 years old. The passerby left before being identified, while debris was falling from WTC 2. The tower collapsed shortly thereafter. The detective then gave the passport to the FBI on 9/11. See FBI report, interview of Detective Chin, Sept. 12, 2001. Source
Another claim that many found difficult or impossible to believe was the apparent discovery of a passportin the rubble of the World Trade Center, which permitted the authorities to immediately identify the so-called “terrorists” who had orchestrated that deed. The critical version was that a large passenger airliner crashed into an office tower, the entire tower disintegrated into a sea of rubble, but lying on the very top of this pile of rubbish was an undamaged passport that the authorities used within two minutes to identify its (now-dead) owner as being the terrorist perpetrator of that damage. Questions were raised as to how conclusions could have resulted from the discovery of a passport lying in rubble, the logical conclusion being that it belonged to a passenger or to one of the dead civilians in the tower. Moreover, many doubted the existence of that passport since, when challenged by the media and with requests to see it, the FBI claimed they had lost it. Yet more suspicions were raised when it was revealed the owner of that passport was not even listed on the passenger manifest, so a connection with the hijacking should have been impossible, much less done within minutes. More suspicions were raised when authorities refused to address repeated reports that the owner of this passport was later seen very much alive in Saudi Arabia,as were apparently a number of others who had been listed as the pilots of these aircraft.
A Look at the World Trade Center

Prior to 9-11, the World Trade Center was described as being a virtually worthless commercial property. The twin towers were apparently suffering from a high vacancy rate and were a money-loser for the City of New York. More importantly, the towers had been constructed with a heavy use of asbestos, a severe safety hazard, and were under a court order for its removal, the cost of which would reportedly have exceeded the market value of the buildings. The land would have retained value, but the buildings themselves were apparently to be demolished within a few years, so their destruction was not a great loss, nor even an unexpected one. Reports published at the time claimed it would have been cheaper to demolish the WTC and construct new buildings on that site, rather than perform the mandatory repairs.Six weeks before the towers were destroyed, a Jewish New York businessman namedLarry Silverstein, who was a rumored organised crime figure, leased the twin towers for 99 years, and apparently received an insurance windfall in return for his small initial lease payment. Skeptics were immediately suspicions, due to the enormous convenience of the towers being destroyed by aircraft, thereby saving the owners the better part of a billion dollars in renovation costs, and further derided the claim that anyone would take a 99-year lease on buildings that were losing money and had no financial future.

The official 9-11 narrative regarding the World Trade Center appeared to present some serious credibility problems. Immediately after the collapse, dozens of high-rise architects and engineers claimed the buildings had been brought down by controlled demolition explosives, since modern towers are built to withstand aircraft crashes. The authorities officially claimed the heat of combustion from the aircraft fuel was sufficient to weaken the structures, causing their collapse, but that claim was strongly refuted by all experts, and backed by what appeared to be substantial scientific documentation. Building experts unanimously claimed that no building in modern history has ever collapsed from fire, but the US experienced three in one day.
Suspicions were further stoked by authoritative claims that the fuel was largely burned up in the initial fireball during the first fifteen seconds, and that jet fuel, which is principally kerosene, does not burn at a sufficiently high temperature to cause such structural failures. Though the official accounts blamed fire for the destruction of all three World Trade Center towers, the fires did not appear to have been particularly severe. Indeed, the investigating agency stated that the jet fuel burned off in less than ten minutes, and one expert claimed “There’s ample evidence that the steel temperatures got nowhere close to those required to cause failure. He said firemen at the 78th-floor impact zone reported “only two small fires”, not the “1000°C inferno” government officials claimed. Many construction experts noted that other steel-framed towers had burned longer, hotter, and much more intensely without collapse. An example was of a fire in a 56-story skyscraper in Venezuela that spread over 26 floors and burned for over 17 hours, but the tower did not collapse. “As engineers, we know what fire can do to steel and what it can’t.”
Matters were made worse when more than 200 witnesses in total, including police and firemen, testified to hearing and seeing, and recording on video, multiple explosions emanating from the buildings prior to and during their collapse, just as would occur with controlled demolition. Hundreds of building experts, engineers and demolition experts have claimed that it would have been impossible to bring down those buildings without explosives, and indeed evidence was found of nano-thermite in the building residue after the collapse. A number of people entered the area after the collapse and produced photographic evidence of thermite residues in the rubble, as well as manypools of molten steel,which they claimed result only from a controlled demolition with explosives. Over 100 recorded witnesses, including personnel from the New York Fire Department, reported hearing and seeing multiple explosions, with numerous eyewitness accounts of secondary explosions well below the impact floors. They described “explosive clouds of dust and debris moving horizontally and vertically“, which “does not look anything like a heat-induced, gravitational collapse”. The perimeter columns weighing several tons each were ejected laterally up to 600 feet, which is not possible without explosives. For all three buildings, there appeared to have been substantial verified evidence of a planned controlled demolition done with explosives.
One such article published in a Journal of Chemical Physics, signed by no less than nine experts, analyzed the results of studies on particles taken from the World Trade Center, confirming the discovery that the dust from the collapsed buildings contained “highly energetic pyrotechnic or explosive material” – thermite, the substance of choice for controlled demolition of buildings.
One private study confirmed that witnesses uniformly reported hearing these explosions taking place about 15 seconds before the airplane impacts. Adding to the suspicions was the fact that the buildings displayed all the characteristics of classic controlled demolitions: a complete, abrupt and total collapse of a building into its own footprint, something generally considered otherwise impossible. If that weren’t enough to create cynicism in most people, there was the matter of WTC 7, a building that had not been hit by anything, but nevertheless collapsed as did the two large towers. No explanation was ever offered for this third collapse, and Larry Silverstein was recorded on video saying, “We decided to pull it”, i.e., to bring down the building with explosives.
To add to the fuel of suspicion, WTC tenants and building security staff reported that much security had been removed from the WTC in the days prior to the attack, and that many “power down” conditions existed in the twin towers, apparently for installation of new electrical cabling, but this also disabled all the security cameras and other systems, which would have permitted the installation of explosives without detection.
Another grave concern to those who disbelieved the official story was what appeared to be a lack of any meaningful investigation, coupled with what many saw as the deliberate destruction of evidence. The authorities limited public access to the scene as we would expect, but suspicions were rampant when on the day following the attacks, the WTC area was already being “cleaned”. Rather than searching for the causes of the collapse of the buildings – or searching for bodies, for that matter – salvage firms were already on the scene, removing all the steel and other materials, and loading them onto ships destined for China and India as scrap metal. Observers claimed that all evidence of the explosions, the nano-thermite, the planned controlled demolition of the buildings, was deliberately eliminated.

There were other serious problems that served to create yet more suspicion of a conspiracy and cover-up when the Washington Post reported that the Israeli instant-messaging firm Odigo received text messages circulating through its system containing warnings of an attack on the World Trade Center two hours before the event occurred, and that Jewish-owned firms with offices in the two main towers had been warned to evacuate their staff several hours before the attack, and had done so. The message firm apparently had the ability to identify the source of the warnings, but was never requested to do so. The refusal by the FBI and other authorities to comment on how these prior warnings could have occurred, of course served only to heighten suspicions.
The FBI’s ‘Dancing Israelis’ Investigation Reveals Israeli Foreknowledge of 9/11. Source
One of the most inflammatory events was that of the “dancing Jews”. A small group of men whom witnesses described as “Middle Eastern-looking” and later identified as Jews from Israel, had placed video equipment about 30 minutes beforehand, in position to photograph the crashes into the two main WTC towers, and were photographed “jumping up and down”, cheering and celebrating, after the aircraft had hit the first tower. This was reported to the New York police, who managed to locate and arrest these men, who were found to be carrying considerable cash and multiple fake passports. Early media reports were that the men were interrogated, but then inexplicably released and placed on the next plane to Israel.The media also initially reported that the men were on an official list of terrorist suspects and that their leader was a known Israeli Mossad agent. Of course, the public were enormously suspicious as to how these men could have been waiting in position to video-record an event that nobody knew would occur. These two items, plus some others, have led to the conclusion that Israel’s Mossad had cooperated with the CIA and FBI in planning the 9-11 attacks, and that the warnings and video-taping of the event were due to this prior knowledge. The immediate return of these men to Israel was especially unusual considering that New York City was locked down after the attack and no flights were permitted to leave.

More suspicions were aroused when within hours the White House was laying the blame on Osama bin Laden when no evidence was ever presented to explain or justify that conclusion. To make matters worse, the US used the event to justify the almost immediate invasion of Iraq, when it was later proven those decisions – and full preparations – to invade had been made two years prior to 9-11. These and other facts led many to conclude the 9-11 events were staged by the administration to provide a public justification for a hidden agenda.
The world’s media has reported that many of the so-called hijackers “fingered” by the FBI are still alive. Source
Many other anomalies began pouring in after the initial official narrative reached the media, one being that the names of the supposed hijackers did not appear on any of the passenger lists, fueling immediate questions about how they could possibly have been identified in only two days and without any apparent crime scene investigations. Moreover, there were repeated published reports that many of the alleged hijackers were found to be alive and well in Saudi Arabia long after the events of 9-11, apparently not having died in the crashes after all.
Another serious problem was that the US government and military have many safeguards in place to prevent precisely such events as hijacking suicide missions. NORAD and others are responsible for scrambling fighter aircraft to intercept and, if necessary, shoot down flights such as these. But the official narrative claimed without explanation that this didn’t occur. At first, the officials claimed that no aircraft were scrambled, but when a public outcry seemed to indicate this wasn’t acceptable, the story changed to a claim that military aircraft were indeed scrambled but that one group of aircraft couldn’t locate the hijacked airliners and that another group inexplicably flew out over the ocean instead of searching over land. This was one story that changed many times, each version less believable than the one prior.
A Quick Look at the Pentagon
In the minds of all cynics, the aircraft crash into the Pentagon perhaps attracted the most suspicion of all, and with apparent good reason. The official story was that a Boeing 757 crashed into a brick wall at the Pentagon, but the problem in many minds was that there was no evidence of such an event. The first suspicions were raised by the reality of a small clean hole in a brick wall, perhaps two meters in diameter, with no aircraft wreckage anywhere to be seen – simply a small round hole in a wall. Countless aviation and aircraft disaster experts were quick to denounce this as a hoax, claiming an aircraft as large as a 757 could not possibly have entered that small hole and disappeared. Moreover, they insisted that wreckage would have been strewed everywhere and that the wings and tail could not have possibly folded up and followed the aircraft into that tiny hole.

Source
To make matters more questionable for the cynics, in the entire brick wall radiating from the crash entry point, the building appeared to be totally undisturbed even to the point of all windows remaining intact. Critics of the official story immediately derided the officials by stating, “So an airliner weighing more than 100,000 Kgs hits a solid brick building at 500 Kms/hr., makes only a neat little hole the size of a truck, creating not even enough impact vibration to break any of the nearby windows.”
A further problem was the total absence of wreckage.There were no airplane parts, no bodies, no luggage, no nothing, just a small round hole in a wall. But it was worse than this because the Pentagon structure contained three parallel brick walls quite some meters apart, each containing the same clean small hole as did the external wall. Observers derided the possibility that a huge aircraft could not only produce such a small entry hole, but that it could remain essentially intact while penetrating three such brick walls in succession, in each case leaving no damage other than the penetration hole itself. Many military personnel immediately claimed the Pentagon had been struck by a missile and not an aircraft. One retired Air Force General said, “When you look at the whole thing, especially the crash site void of airplane parts, the size of the hole left in the building and the fact the projectile’s impact penetrated numerous concrete walls, it looks like the work of a missile.And when you look at the damage, it was obviously a missile.”
After the crash, there were many photos published of the Pentagon wall, with the clean round hole and no other damage. The photos also clearly displayed no aircraft wreckage of any kind, and no heat damage or scorching anywhere to be seen. In fact, the green grass was untouched right up to the wall of the Pentagon. Those photos appear to have been entirely scrubbed from the Internet, the only remaining photos being those after the wall collapsed. The only other photos are those from the interior of the Pentagon wall, displaying a small amount of wreckage; but a close look shows that this is construction rubble from the damaged wall, and contains no aircraft wreckage of any kind.
To explain the absence of wreckage and debris, the official story was that the heat of the explosion from ignition of the aircraft fuel caused the aircraft to “evaporate”, a claim that, even if I want to accept the other parts of the story, I must agree this one is impossible nonsense. It is not difficult to justify a disbelief, nor to prove the impossibility of this claim.
Let’s assume this huge aircraft did somehow crash into and penetrate the solid brick wall of the Pentagon, making an entry hole far smaller than the actual size of the aircraft. And let’s pretend the wings and tail did not detach and get left behind but, like the aircraft, somehow squeezed into a small fraction of their size and followed the aircraft into that tiny hole, in their entirety. We’ll forget that the wingspan of more than 40 meters would not easily fit sideways into a 2-meter hole in a wall, or that a vertical tail of almost 15 meters might have the same problem.How then to deal with the absence of wreckage, of luggage and of bodies?
Let’s consider the official narrative that the explosion and burning of the aviation fuel “vaporised” the aircraft and all its contents. If we have a large pot of water on a stove, applying heat of 100°C will eventually boil off all the water, but that would require 30 minutes or more. If we want to accelerate the vaporisation, we can increase the heat to 200°C or 300°C. The higher the temperature, the more quickly will the water evaporate. But if we want to vaporise that entire pot of water in an instant, in only one or two seconds, we clearly will have to apply much higher temperatures. Hundreds of degrees will not do the job, nor will thousands of degrees. We will need heat in the tens of thousands of degrees.
Now let’s look at the aircraft. The aluminum in the fuselage will begin to evaporate at about 2,500°C, and remember we are not now evaporating 10 liters of water but more than 100,000 Kgs of aircraft and contents so we will need some extreme temperatures to vaporise the entire aircraft in one or two seconds. Clearly, thousands of degrees will not do that job, nor will tens of thousands. We will need an application of millions of degrees for those one or two seconds to make the entire volume of that aircraft disappear in one “poof”. Unfortunately, aircraft fuel burns at only about 1,000°C maximum.
But let’s suspend belief for a moment and concede that somehow this huge aircraft created and entirely disappeared into this tiny hole in a wall, and that the jet fuel somehow managed to create combustion temperatures of millions of degrees sufficient to vaporise the entire aircraft and its contents in a matter of seconds. That would account for the absence of wreckage, of luggage and of bodies. But then, the authorities managed to identify most of the victims of this apparently terrible crash by their DNA. So, even with all our generosity, we finally have a problem. The heat of the crash and explosion were so severe as to totally vaporise the entire aircraft instantly, evaporating 100,000 Kgs. of metal, leaving no remains of any kind, and especially no remains of bodies, but then somehow the delicate, fragile human DNA ( which cannot withstand more than about 50 degrees), resurrected itself, extricated itself from the vapors, congealed, slowly drifted down and lay on the little blades of grass, totally undamaged, waiting for the authorities to analyse it.
Another area attacked by the cynics was the fact that nothing at the crash site exhibited signs of heat, intense or otherwise; all the grass in front of and surrounding the crash site was still green and healthy, with even the surrounding windows avoiding damage.
Yet another area of suspicion was raised by the absence of evidence of evaporated aluminum, scientists claiming that the evaporation of 100,000 Kgs. of aluminum would have quickly condensed and coated every surface within kilometers with a shiny silver coating of sputtered aluminum, exactly like the inside surface of a bag of potato chips. If the aircraft had indeed evaporated as the authorities claimed, every leaf on every tree, every blade of grass within 5 kilometers, would have been covered with a shiny silver layer of condensed aluminum.
Another consideration that raised huge suspicions related to security of the Pentagon, was the media documenting the existence of more than 85 video surveillance cameras, both government and private, covering the outside of the building, yet the government refused to release any video to substantiate the claim that a 757 hit the Pentagon.According to media reports, all those 85 video cameras were quickly confiscated by the FBI and CIA who to this day refuse to release the videos, claiming “they don’t show anything”. Many observers see these claims as obviously untrue, since the video cameras would clearly show what did crash into the Pentagon, and they claim further that if the videos truly don’t show anything, why the extreme reluctance to release them. Then, after more than 20 years, (2023) the authorities released one video purporting to show an airliner hitting the Pentagon. But the video is unclear and appears to have been manipulated.
Many military and commercial aviation experts have written articles and books on the Pentagon incident, all coming to essentially the same conclusions and supporting the suspicions of the cynics. Here are a few brief comments from industry experts:
“As a former General Electric Turbine engineering specialist and manager, and then CEO of a turbine engineering company, I can guarantee that none of the high tech, high temperature alloy engines on any of the four planes that crashed on 9/11 would be completely destroyed, burned, shattered or melted in any crash or fire. Wrecked, yes, but not destroyed. Where are all of those engines, particularly at the Pentagon? If jet powered aircraft crashed on 9/11, those engines, plus wings and tail assembly, would be there.”
“One can easily look at video footage and photographs of the attack on the Pentagon and conclude that a Boeing 757 with a wingspan of 125 feet, a length of 155 feet and a height of 44 feet at the tail did not hit the Pentagon. Neither damage to the building or debris outside or inside the building can substantiate such a claim. While the wingspan of a 757 is 125 feet, the hole in the outside wall of the Pentagon was less than 15 feet in diameter. For the government’s story to be true, the entire plane would have had to fit through that small hole, which was impossible. Additionally, a crash or explosion with the resultant total cremation of a plane has never before happened in aviation history.”
“It’s roughly a 100-ton airplane, and an airplane that weighs 100 tons all assembled is still going to have 100 tons of disassembled trash and parts after it hits a building. There was no wreckage from a 757 at the Pentagon. The vehicle that hit the Pentagon was not Flight 77 . . . it was a cruise missile.”
The Crash in the Coalmine
There was another aircraft that crashed into the ground in a rural area, apparently because civilians overpowered the hijackers and prevented the aircraft from being flown into the White House. However, the civilians were nothing if not tidy; they left no mess for others to clean up. The crash site showed – well, almost nothing. A bit of rubbish strewn around, but no aircraft, no aircraft parts, no engines, no wings, no tail, no baggage and no bodies. Cynics were immediately asking, “Where is any of the wreckage? Of all the pictures I have seen, there is only a hole! Where is any piece of a crashed airplane? Where is any evidence at all?” The official story was that the aircraft apparently crashed into “an abandoned mineshaft”, a small hole in the ground of a few meters diameter, and, as with the Pentagon, totally disappeared down that tiny hole, dragging its engines, wings and tail sections behind it. To add to the suspicions, local residents reported a small military aircraft flying at high speed at treetop level near the “crash” site,then firing a missile at something. That “something” exploded on the ground, leaving the bit of refuse mentioned, at which point the military aircraft sped away. Many locals confirmed this event, but authorities had “no recollection” of a military maneuver in that area at the time, and this question was not addressed by the investigation committee. Moreover, the local residents all claimed they were visited by CIA or FBI agents after the supposed crash and informed that “You saw nothing”.
Inexplicably, no attempt was made to recover the bodies. In every airplane crash in recent memory, enormous efforts are made to recover the bodies. Even when planes crash into the sea, many millions of dollars and months are spent scouring the ocean floor in attempts to locate and retrieve the bodies. But with this airliner “crashing into a coal mine entrance”, nothing was done. But even if an aircraft did in fact miraculously hit such a location, it could not have descended more than 20 or 30 meters into the ground. Little excavation work would have been required to retrieve the aircraft wreckage and the bodies, but the area was simply placed “off limits”, and that was the end.
The Investigating Commission
Due to public outcry and demands, there was eventually held a Congressional 9-11 Investigation Commission, but the members claimed they were hamstrung by official obstruction and never managed to uncover the truth. The Commission was not permitted to begin until over a year after the attacks,and its terms of reference were described as “suspiciously narrow”, its powers of investigation “curiously limited”, and it was given less than a year to examine millions of pages of evidence and interview hundreds of witnesses. Both the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Commission stated that they were “set up to fail” and were starved of funds to do a proper investigation. They also claimed they were denied access to the truth and misled by senior officials in the Pentagon, the Federal Aviation Authority, and that they were deliberately lied to by NORAD officials about the failure to intercept the hijacked aircraft.
Both men, and other Commission members, resigned because of the problems, and these two men wrote a book titled “Without Precedent“, in which they stated their many concerns and frustrations at the cover-up, the deliberate obstruction, and the lack of support from the entire US government and all its agencies. Both men (and other members) claimed the official evidence given to the Commission was “far from the truth”, and that although they were repeatedly lied to, not a single person has ever been charged or even reprimanded, for the crimes of obstruction. The final report omitted a great deal of key evidence, and neglected to address the many serious anomalies in the various accounts of what happened. The commissioners admitted their report was incomplete and flawed, but it was swiftly closed down.
And that ends our truncated summary of the causes for cynicism about the events of 911. You will have to form your own conclusions as to what really occurred on 9-11, and by whom.
Epilogue – Who did it?
In all this, there is one item that requires serious consideration – that of the responsibility for the 9-11 events. They were originally attributed to a group of Saudis, but no evidence was found for that and, as indicated above, most of the so-called “hijackers” were later seen alive and well in Saudi Arabia. It thus seems that they were another kind of “false flag” intended to throw the public off the correct path. The crashes were also blamed on Osama bin Laden, and used as the justification for the invasion and hijacking of Iraq, but these accusations have also been proven false. It thus seems in retrospect than neither the Saudis nor bin Laden were in any way responsible for the attacks. Where, then, does the blame lie?
It appears a certainty that Jews were behind the plot.Nothing else can explain Larry Silversteinpurchasing the scheduled-for-demolition Twin Towers, then make a billion-dollar profit in only months from the insurance claims. Nothing else can explain the “dancing Jews” who placed their photo equipment in position to photograph the crashes into the World Trade Center – a full 30 minutes prior to the crashes, firmly indicating prior knowledge. Nothing else can explain their celebration dancing as the crashes occurred. Nor is there any other explanation for the New York police to suddenly release these proven Mossad agents (who were on the US terrorist list) and put them on a plane to return to Israel, when the city was locked down and no one was leaving. Nothing else can explain the Israeli instant-messaging firm Odigo sending messages to the offices of the Jewish companies in the Towers two or three hours prior to the crashes, telling them to vacate the premises. All of this indicates not only prior knowledge, but connections at a very high level, sufficient for full legal immunity, and this could come only from the Jewish-controlled US State and Justice Departments, as well as the Jewish-controlled CIA.
Since knowledge of the involvement of the Jews became too public to hide or bury, another plausible false-flag conspiracy theory had to be concocted to deflect the blame from the actual perpetrators – and they were certainly not Saudis. Who, then? Several Jews have published material blaming “the Israelis”, claiming that Mossad and Israel were behind the attacks. Among these Jews was Ron Unz of the Unz Review, who even appeared on a video link to Iranian TV, giving his version of how “the Israelis” plotted and executed the entire event. You might say, “Well, isn’t that brave of a Jew, to implicate his own people in such an affair?” No, not at all. This is just a very clever series of Jewish lies, meant to deflect blame and put the matter to rest without resolution.
There are several aspects to this. The first is that blaming the Israelis is equivalent to blaming no one. If you want to prosecute this crime, whom do you arrest? The entire population of Israel? All the staff of Mossad? The problem with such an accusation is that it is too general to be useful. You might as well blame the weatherman. If you blame it on George Bush, you have a target for investigation, but if you blame a nationality, you have nothing.And that is precisely the point of making such an accusation: you have no target, no one specifically to blame, so the matter remains unresolved. And since you present no actual proof, your accusations resonate only with those who probably believed that anyway.
A second, and more serious problem, is that neither “the Israelis” nor Mossad have the authority – or the wherewithal – to independently execute such a plan in a country like the US. The evidence, circumstantial though it may be, is that Jews were definitely behind the event, but this could have been planned and authorised only from The City of London. Israel hasn’t the independence or authority to carry out something of this magnitude on its own, and in any case the event was used to justify the hijacking of Iraq and its oil, and that is definitely something the Jewish bankers in The City had been planning for years – along with similar fates for Libya, Syria, Iran, and Somalia.
But there is another bit of cleverness lurking in this attempt to blame the Israelis for the 9-11 events: it serves to eliminate all other suspects or co-conspirators. If the Jews from Israel, relying heavily on the stealth and prowess of Mossad, executed this event independently, we have no one else to blame. But is that reasonable? Jews from Israel could not possibly have carried out this adventure without the full cooperation of the US government. All we have to do is think.
The day after the buildings in the World Trade Center were brought down, the area was quarantined and demolition crews were already on-site to remove all the debris, dumping rubble into the ocean and separating the steel for shipment to China for re-processing. Who could have been responsible for arranging that, which was obviously done well in advance? The Israelis? Who had the authority to clear the site to eliminate all the evidence, and who was in such a hurry to do it? The Israelis? Who found (and then lost) the hijacker’s passport lying on top of the rubble at the World Trade Center? The Israelis? Who went to all the (reported) 85 separate locations that had video cameras on the Pentagon, and seized all the recordings and the evidence? The Israelis? The Pentagon was in a crisis of explaining more than one trillion dollars’ worth of military hardware that was missing and unaccounted for. Who moved all the records for that investigation into the precise location where the missile would hit the Pentagon and destroy all the evidence and thus kill the investigation?The Israelis?
Who was responsible for NORAD aircraft to intercept and bring down precisely such terrorist aircraft? The Israelis? Who claimed that NORAD aircraft were scrambled but “couldn’t find” the hijacked airliners even with modern radar, and who inexplicably flew those aircraft out over the ocean instead of going to New York or Washington? The Israelis? Who was flying the military aircraft that launched a missile at the “coal mine”, hoping to delude residents into believing an aircraft had crashed? The Israelis? Who refused to search for the non-existent bodies at the coal mine? The Israelis? Who visited the witnesses of the “coal mine” crash to tell them “You saw nothing”? The Israelis? Who changed the flight registration numbers of the two aircraft that hit the World Trade Center, making them appear as regular flights when they were not? The Israelis? Who refused to permit the hundreds of on-the-scene professional witnesses to testify at the Congressional hearings? The Israelis? Which country’s mass media promulgated the official narrative 24/7 and so ferociously denigrated as “conspiracy theorists” everyone searching for the truth? The Israelis?
It should be apparent that this 9-11 event could not possibly have been executed without the full cooperation of the US government and many of its agencies including NORAD, Homeland Security, the State Department, the Department of Justice, the FBI, the CIA, the Pentagon and the US military, and the entire Jewish-owned American media.
But it isn’t really as bad as it seems. A non-existent coal mine suffered no damage. The Pentagon experienced the collapse of a small portion of its perimeter, but gained the loss of all its incriminating files. The buildings in the World Trade Center had already been condemned because of the asbestos, and were scheduled for demolition anyway. And yes, a few thousand people died, but that’s hardly the first time the US government or the Jews have sacrificed lives for a political cause.
You might think, “But this would involve at least hundreds and perhaps thousands of people. Surely one of them would talk. The truth would have to leak out.” Let me tell you something. If three men in black suits and wearing aviator sunglasses push their way into your home and tell you that you saw nothing and knew nothing, and to keep your mouth shut, you would be very tempted to obey. Those men are armed, they have the right to shoot you dead where you stand, and you know that, and they know it. Some of you may remember a movie where one of the criminal protagonists said, “If you step out of line, I will shoot you and the man next to you”. That is much more powerful than simply threatening you.The standard way these people obtain obedience – or silence – is to threaten not only you but your entire family, your parents, your friends and your parents’ friends.And if they tell you that the lives of your family and friends are dependent on your silence, you will most likely choose to be silent. And if you are not silent, two things will happen: (1) you will be dead, and (2) you will be viciously denounced in the media as a “conspiracy theorist” who committed suicide. And you wouldn’t be the first.
