Millions of refugees from Washington’s wars are currently over-running Europe. Washington’s 14-year and ongoing slaughter of Muslims and destruction of their countries are war crimes for which the US government’s official 9/11 conspiracy theory was the catalyst. Factual evidence and science do not support Washington’s conspiracy theory. The 9/11 Commission did not conduct an investigation. It was not permitted to investigate.
The Commission sat and listened to the government’s story and wrote it down. Afterwards, the chairman and cochairman of the Commission said that the Commission “was set up to fail.” For a factual explanation of 9/11, watch this film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsoY3AIRUGA&feature=youtu.be
Here is a presentation by Pilots For 9/11 Truth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Laaq44SDgg
Here is an extensive examination of many of the aspects of 9/11: http://www.luogocomune.net/site/modules/sections/index.php?op=viewarticle&artid=167
Phil Restino of the Central Florida chapter of Veterans For Peace wants to know why national antiwar organizations buy into the official 9/11 story when the official story is the basis for the wars that antiwar organizations oppose. Some are beginning to wonder if ineffectual peace groups are really Homeland Security or CIA fronts?
The account below of the government’s 9/11 conspiracy theory reads like a parody, but in fact is an accurate summary of the official 9/11 conspiracy theory. It was posted as a comment in the online UK Telegraph on September 12, 2009, in response to Charlie Sheen’s request to President Obama to conduct a real investigation into what happened on September 11, 2001.
The Official Version of 9/11 goes something like this:
Directed by a beardy-guy from a cave in Afghanistan, nineteen hard-drinking, coke-snorting, devout Muslims enjoy lap dances before their mission to meet Allah. Using nothing more than craft knifes, they overpower cabin crew, passengers and pilots on four planes.
And hangover or not, they manage to give the world’s most sophisticated air defence system the slip.
Unfazed by leaving their “How to Fly a Passenger Jet” guide in the car at the airport, they master the controls in no-time and score direct hits on two towers, causing THREE to collapse completely.
The laws of physics fail, and the world watches in awe as asymmetrical damage and scattered low temperature fires cause steel-framed buildings to collapse symmetrically through their own mass at free-fall speed, for the first time in history.
Despite their dastardly cunning and superb planning, they give their identity away by using explosion-proof passports, which survive the destruction of steel and concrete and fall to the ground where they are quickly discovered lying on top of the mass of debris.
Meanwhile in Washington:
Hani Hanjour, having previously flunked Cessna flying school, gets carried away with all the success of the day and suddenly finds incredible abilities behind the controls of a jet airliner. Instead of flying straight down into the large roof area of the Pentagon, he decides to show off a little. Executing an incredible 270-degree downward spiral, he levels off to hit the low facade of the Pentagon. Without ruining the nicely mowed lawn and at a speed just too fast to capture on video.
In the skies above Pennsylvania:
Desperate to talk to loved ones before their death, some passengers use sheer willpower to connect mobile calls that would not be possible until several years later.
And following a heroic attempt by some to retake control of Flight 93, the airliner crashes into a Pennsylvania field leaving no trace of engines, fuselage or occupants except for the standard issue Muslim terrorist bandana.
During these events:
President Bush continues to read “My Pet Goat” to a class of primary school children.
In New York:
World Trade Center leaseholder Larry Silverstein blesses his own foresight in insuring the buildings against terrorist attack only six weeks previously.
The Neoconservatives are overjoyed by the arrival of the “New Pearl Harbor,” the necessary catalyst for launching their pre-planned wars.
You can't make this stuff up.
Although it sometimes seems that someone did.
Please remember and donate to the survivors of 9/11.
And all those who have survived its seemingly everafter effects.
Visas for Al-Qaeda, Part 2: Treachery
Michael Springmann was, to all appearances, your run-of-the-mill junior level consular employee, but he was not in a usual place, nor in a usual time. His government sent him to Saudi Arabia right as it was preparing for a battle royale with the USSR in Afghanistan. In this excerpt from his book, Springmann describes a consulate teeming with CIA personnel, and reveals how, as head of the American visa bureau, he was ordered not to follow his best instincts but instead to approve visas for all manner of dubious individuals. In retrospect, he realized he was witnessing the mujahideen pipeline — the flow of young fighters to take on the Soviets — the same people who later became al-Qaeda.
Springmann, it turns out, was not run-of-the-mill at all. He did not behave as expected. He asked too many questions and made too many complaints to too many agencies about what was going on. For sounding the alarm, the State Department fired him. The story, in his words:
“This tale is a sordid sketch of backstabbing, disloyalty, double crosses, faithlessness, falsity, perfidy, sellouts, treachery, and betrayal. All of this is in addition to the stupidity and incompetence normally manifested by the State Department and the intelligence services.”
21st Century Fox in the Henhouse
The hole in the ozone layer is growing, the drought in California is worsening, the Arctic is melting, the severity of natural disaster is increasing — and the very people who’ve been documenting these issues in living color have just merged with the very people who deny the causes behind it!
That’s right, 21st Century Fox, controlled by the Murdoch family, now holds a 73 percent stake in a for-profit venture between Fox and "National Geographic." Seeing as how family patriarch Rupert Murdoch is not exactly an ardent supporter of the notion of man-made climate change, maybe the "National Geographic" magazine will soon treat us to headlines like: “Fracking is the new solar power” or “Driving SUVs proven beneficial to the environment.”
It should also be noted that the "National Geographic Society" has a long history of handing out grants to scientists. It is certainly not difficult to imagine that the ones writing the checks might also want a say in who the money is going to.
TV Reporter Gets the Hook for Asking Senator about Hookers
"The Advocate" reports that a Baton Rouge TV reporter was fired shortly after asking Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) whether the gubernatorial candidate still solicited prostitutes. Considering that the lawmaker was tied to not one but two prostitution rings, it might seem like a fair question.
Somebody clearly didn’t think so, and now TV reporter Derek Meyers is out of a job. He claims the reason is that Vitter’s people called his TV station and threatened to pull campaign ads. Both the station and Vitter’s campaign say that didn’t happen. You can read the entire story here.
DOJ Wants Access to Everything, Everywhere
If the Department of Justice (DOJ) has its way, the US government would be allowed to demand access to any e-mail sent and received through an e-mail provider headquartered in the United States. The reason: DOJ says those e-mails constitute “business records” of the hosting company.
In other words, when a 12-year-old Belgian girl uses a Gmail (or Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, etc.) account to send an e-mail wishing her granny all the best on her 70thbirthday, DOJ argues that constitutes a Google/Microsoft/Yahoo business record and the US government should be allowed to read it upon demand — even if it is stored on a server abroad. It is difficult to see how that kind of argument will stand up in court, but, as "WhoWhatWhy" readers know, judges make peculiar decisions when the government’s insatiable appetite for information — and control — is at stake.
This time around, DOJ goes up against Microsoft in a landmark case described in this article.
