"Truth, for the tyrants, is the most terrible and cruel of all bindings; it is like an incandescent iron falling across their chests. And it is even more agonizing than hot iron, for that only burns the flesh, while truth burns its way into the soul" — Lauro Aguirre
9/11 is the seminal event of our generation. That is what we've been sold. That is what we've been told seemingly every day on virtually every news telecast, every speech, every statement, every policy announcement, every public appearance by every government official since September 11, 2001. And as such, we're told, it should rightfully change the course of domestic and foreign policy. Civil liberties should be altered and amended in response. The perpetrators, and all peoples loosely linked and allied to their cause, should be pursued and hunted down no matter what the financial or human cost. It should dominate the airwaves of private and public discourse. It should reconfigure and refocus the diligence of the American populace. And all available measures should be taken to ensure something like it never happens again.
And this is all true. These assessments in response to that horrific morning are sober and appropriate. 9/11 is a call to arms. But not in the way we think. Not in the manner we have, until now, pursued. For we have made one enormous, catastrophic mistake. And that is in the identity of the perpetrators, and in the heading of our pursuit of justice. For any serious, detailed, and independent investigation into the events of 9/11 will reveal that the actual forces behind the conception, planning, and execution of this seminal event came not from bearded Islamic extremists living in a cave in Afghanistan, but from within high-level rogue elements of our own government.
In a speech in San Francisco on April 19, 2002, FBI Director Robert Mueller stated that, "In our investigation, we have not uncovered a single piece of paper-either here in the United States or in the treasure trove of information that has turned up in Afghanistan and elsewhere-that mentioned any aspect of the September 11 plot." In the speech, there was a tone of underlying surprise in Mueller's voice because he, like so many of us, had by that point accepted as self-evident truth the given narrative of 19 Arab hijackers under the direction of Osama bin Laden as the responsible perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks. And such a complex, well-orchestrated crime should have left a long paper trail and discarded pile of evidence for investigators to follow and pick up. But there was none. In fact, "the FBI's (current) page on bin Laden as a 'Most Wanted Terrorist' does not list him as wanted for 9/11, and when asked why, a FBI spokesman said, 'because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting bin Laden to 9/11'." (Debunking 9/11 Debunking, pg. 21, Dr. David Ray Griffin, Olive Branch Press, 2007.)
And the reason no evidence has been uncovered connecting bin Laden to 9/11 is simple - the plot was not hatched in a cave in Afghanistan. There is no cave, there is no evidence to find (at least not where we are looking) because the plot was hatched by a small group of people yet to be investigated - a cabal of high level, in-house perpetrators intent on inventing a 'new enemy' and a 'new Pearl Harbor'-like incident in order to conjure public support for their pre-existing, well-documented agenda and plans to redirect American domestic and foreign policy to feed their own self-serving imperial desires. After all, who benefited more from September 11th than the leaders of PNAC (Project for the New American Century), the Neo-Con movement, and their corporate overlords? The paper that follows will offer proof to support the above hypothesis and direction for further inquiry and investigation.
General notes on the layout of the paper and website: This paper is most effective when read in order. I have worked hard to create a logical, steadily progressing narrative. On the left hand side of each page, you will see the same list of section headings, and they essentially work like the chronological chapters of any book or essay. Each heading will bring up a specific section, making it easier to navigate between the various chapters and sections. I have also tried not to crowd the screen with too many photos or images, which often serve just to confuse and scatter one's attention. Instead, pertinent words and references are highlighted within the text, and when clicked, they will rout you to relevant windows to view the referenced photo, video, link, or primary source. This way you can move deftly back and forth between the text and the supporting imagery and source material.
'Clif Notes': Those of you in a rush and looking to scan over the strongest, most compelling evidence, I would suggest reviewing at least three aspects of the research: Intelligence Breakdowns, WTC Building 7, and Military Response, especially the bizarre behavior and comments of Dick Cheney on the morning of 9/11, as detailed by eyewitness Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta in open testimony to the '9/11 Commission'.
Those of you more visually inclined, study at least the 2 below video clips. The first is of WTC Building 7, the little-known third building to collapse on September 11, a massive 47 story high-rise NOT hit by an airplane that somehow fell to the ground at 5:20 p.m. on the evening of 9/11 in the exact manner of a controlled demolition.
Is it not at least reasonable to suggest that rather than 'collapsing', the building seems to be exploding in a progressive wave of expertly timed blasts popping out one floor at a time, creating a perfectly symmetrical downward wave of explosions? Is it not reasonable to suggest from the video evidence that, rather than falling, the building seems to be exploding, one floor at a time, into huge clouds of pulverized dust? Is it not odd that huge multi-ton steel beams are being ejected hundreds of feet laterally in front of the lighter dust particles, a phenomenon only possible with the aid of explosives? Is it not odd that, if the floors did indeed break away from the center support columns and fall one on top of the other in the supposed 'pancake' collapse, the 47 massive central steel support columns on which those floors sat are not standing naked hundreds of feet in the air after having been stripped of the attached floors, like a trunk stripped of its branches? Is it not odd that these 47 massive central steel support beams rising over 1,000 feet into the air were somehow severed into convenient 25 and 30 foot lengths to be collected and shipped away without anyone bothering to analyze them? Is it not odd that this federal disaster area and crime scene was cordoned off before qualified investigators, explosives experts, and/or arson specialists could be called in, and almost all physical evidence (i.e. the building parts) was removed, recycled, and shipped ovrerseas? These are all questions that have never been addressed in any of the official reports on the Towers' demise. Why?
And for those of you interested in feature-length films and documentaries on the subject, forget Loose Change for now (at least until their 'Final Cut' comes out in late 2007). Watch '9/11 Mysteries', or 'Improbable Collapse', what I consider the two most compelling, comprehensively researched documentaries on the subject of 9/11.
