The Real Path to 9/11: Inside Job or Republican Incompetence?

s the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy approaches, there has been a concerted effort in the corporate media, mostly television and radio, to discredit the 9/11 truth movement. They mainly have been using these two media outlets because television watchers are the people most unable to think clearly and therefore unable to form an independent conclusion on their own.

Accoring to a Zogby poll, 46% of Americans think that Saddam Hussein had something to do with 9/11. How did they reach that conclusion? Bush himself said there was no links in September of 2003, and Cheney blamed it on the media, two years ago. So why do these notions still persist?
What's more, where did these notions originate? Could it have been from The White House itself?
The effort to discredit the 9/11 truth movement in the corporate media is an attempt to again force notions on people without actually prepondering the evidence.The two main theories Let It Happen On Purpose(LIHOP) and Made It Happen On Purpose(MIHOP) are dismissed as crazy "tinfoil hat" conspiracies (as opposed to the racist "official" conspiracy theory), but never address some of the issues raised by the movement.
First piece of evidence (which falls into the MIHOP category) is the presense of explosions caused by bombs being placed in the towers that caused them to collapse like a controlled demolition into their own footprint. Moreover, they point to the collapse of WTC 7, which was not struck by a plane, as evidence that explosives were used on September 11. As Steven Jones ( a physics professor) says:

As you observed, WTC 7 collapsed rapidly and symmetrically -- even though fires were randomly scattered in the building. WTC 7 fell about seven hours after the Towers collapsed, even though no major persistent fires were visible. There were twenty-four huge steel support columns inside WTC 7 as well as huge trusses, arranged asymmetrically, along with approximately 57 perimeter columns. (FEMA, 2002, chapter 5.) A symmetrical collapse, as observed, evidently requires the simultaneous “pulling” of most or all of the support columns. The Second Law of Thermodynamics implies that the likelihood of complete and symmetrical collapse due to random fires as in the “official” theory is small, since asymmetrical failure is so much more likely. On the other hand, a major goal of controlled demolition using explosives is the complete and symmetrical collapse of buildings.

Professor Jones has also said this was the only evidence in history, before or after, of fire bringing down a steel framed building.
Another incident that fits both the LIHOP and MIHOP scenarios is the death of Payne Stewart in his Lear Jet, which had depressurized shortly after take-off in Florida and was shortly intercepted by fighter jets when the cockpit was "unresponsive". Standard operational procedure of NORAD is to send planes to intercept a flight when it goes off course (which is filed before take-off). Yet this was not followed on 9/11, which would have prevented any planes from hitting the towers and the Pentagon. This leads to the theory that someone had issued a "stand down" order on that day. Now consider the testimony of Norman Mineta, Former Transportation Secretary for the Bush administration, to the official 9/11 Commission:

Mineta: "During the time that the airplane was coming into the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the Vice President...the plane is 50 miles out...the plane is 30 miles out....and when it got down to the plane is 10 miles out, the young man also said to the vice president "do the orders still stand?" And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and said "Of course the orders still stand, have you heard anything to the contrary!??"

The MIHOP theory claims that 9/11 was a "false flag" operation, that is, an intelligence operation carried out by one group to be blamed on another. They point to the Project For a New American Century's "Rebuilding America's Defenses", which called for reshaping the Middle East to better fit corporate America's interests. In order to catalyze the support they would need to start their aganda, a "New Pearl Harbor" would be needed to rally the American people behind the agenda. MIHOP supporters point to the fact that 7 of the alleged 9/11 hijackers were still alive after 9/11, (as well as evidence no Arabs were found on the autopsy list) that 9/11 was a false flag operation designed to frame Arabs in order to enable the Bush administration (most of them signees on the PNAC) to start their agenda. As former MI5 agent David Shayler stated last year, in his opinion 9/11 was an inside meant to " bring about a permanent state of emergency in America and pave the way for the invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq and ultimately Iran and Syria." Guess which countries the Bush administration is starting the propaganda campaign for invasion of next?
Of course, another conclusion could be that the US government under the Bush/Republican regime has become so incompetent that it can't function at all. The failures in Afghanistan and Iraq certainly point to that, as well as their botched handling of a response to Hurricane Katrina. It does appeal to those of a partisan stripe who feel that these pathetic bunglers aren't capable of pulling off such a complex scheme (neglecting, of course, their capability of pulling off two election frauds).
Another example of incompetence or complicity is the actions of the Secret Service on September 11. With an airport four miles away, untold numbers of hijacked planes in the sky that day, Bush's location at the time being made known days in advance, the secret service allowed the number one terrorist target to sit in plain sight, surrounded by children, instead of immediately whisking him away to safety. But they didn't. Was it merely incompetence, or did they know that Bush was not a target (MIHOP)?
And yet, the only defnse that people can muster up against such theories is the insanity defense. You know, you must be wearing a tinfoil hat to believe the government would lie to us and kill their own people. The same government that deliberately manipulated intelligence to start a war in Iraq causing the deaths of over 12,000 soldiers (who, the last time I checked were people too)and gave defense contractors, construction companies, and oil companies billions of dollars in no-bid contracts. It's an old ploy, when you can't refute the evidence you must therefore attack the ones presenting it.
And what of Osama? You know, the one that Bush blames for the attacks, even though it's not on his official FBI 'rap sheet'? The guy who turns up on audio and video tapes almost conveniently timed to benefit the agenda of the Bush administration? The one Bush claimed we had no idea where he was or how to capture him, without carpet bombing Afghanistan? He recently turned up again on another videotape just as the GOP needed him for their fall election strategy, which is based on selling fear to the masses.
It's the fear that got the PATRIOT Act passed. It's the fear that keeps people from questioning the actions of the Bush administration lest they be bundled with the 'terrorists'.
When a crime is committed, the usual investigative techniques involve finding out who committed the crime by determining who benefitted the most from it. Did alQaeda, whose goal is to remove the American infidel presence from their lands, as well as having Israel leave Palestine, benefit? Not really, as the attacks brought more US troops to the Middle east. The PNAC benefitted by having their agenda of "creating a new Middle east" advanced. Israel benefitted because, in the words of Binyamin Netanyahu on 9/11:
"It's very good…….Well, it's not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy (for Israel)"

allowing them to build a "security" wall through Palestinian territory, as well as perpetuate collective punishment against the Palestinian people without much outcry from the US. Defense contractors, Halliburton, they certainly benefitted.
So excuse me if I think the government at least LIHOP, if not MIHOP. I've looked at all the evidence, too much to go into here, and reached my conclusion. You can think I wear a tin foil hat if you wish. But I hope you don't mind if I call you an anal ostrich. You know, hiding your head up your ass in fear of the truth.

Hey! Thanks for fixing this! I tried several times to get it to this, following the examples of my previous posts, but it just wouldn't do it.

Do you mean the truncating?

Blogger's been weird.

Elizabeth Branford said...

Not sure what you mean here:
(as opposed to the racist "official" conspiracy theory)

Very thorough article, Lew.

My understanding recently though based on tapes from civilian air traffic and NORAD which were played a few weeks also on NPR- was that due to outdated equipment, NORAD was unable to "find" the planes.

They featured one conversation for example where NROAD did not even know the crash in PA had happened yet-a full hour after it went down.

And to allow a plane into Washington DC? Without scrambling planes to take it down? So much just doesn't make sense.

What is the "official" explanation for that? The order? Somebody stopped protocol, right?

Lew Scannon said...

Unfortunately, we'll never know because tape recorings if that day were destroyed by crusing the cassette, then cttuing up the tape and dispersing it in varios garbage receptacles throughout the building.
At one time, Rumsfeld admitted Flight 93 was shot down. I'll see if I can find a link.

1- George W. Bush was sworn in.
2. This immediately ended protocol.

I heard that the movie producers were the ones that fought for those tapes, that hollywood has more clout than families of 4,000 people.

Did you hear that?

Those tapes were pretty damning on the competency matter

Diane S. said...

I've read (and watched) some of the conspiracy theories and heard most of them reasonably debunked. However, I don't think any of us will ever know what really happened on September 11th. I have no reason to believe the government has been any more honest about this event than it has been about anything else.

What is certain is that almost 3,000 people died at the hands of pure evil. Whose evil, I'm not sure of. I am sure their death served no purpose other than to give George W. his excuse to invade Iraq (something he had planned prior to his campaign for the presidency), and was a political shot in the arm to terrorists everywhere.

I had no idea tapes had been destroyed. Isn't that vaguely familiar? Didn't someone get impeached for that? Is America even awake?

Brian said...

There are far too many convenient coincidences on 9-11 for it to have not been ignored/allowed to happen. It was probably deemed as a necessary evil and a means to pick off a dictator (Saddam) whom Bush had a vendetta against.

There are other odd happenings which are finally being brought to light... a speech accidentally stating that WTC 7 was 'pulled'. Conveniently, this was home to the SEC as they investigated Enron.

Too much in the way of underhanded secrecy to trust any explanation or arrive at any definitive explanation.

Enlightenment said...

One thing that struck me as odd in the days after 9/11 was Bush saying "We will not tolerate conspiracy theories [regarding 9/11]". Sure enough there have been some wacky conspiracy theories surrounding the events of that day. The most far-fetched and patently ridiculous one that I've ever heard goes like this: Nineteen hijackers who claimed to be devout Muslims but yet were so un-Muslim as to be getting drunk all the time, doing cocaine and frequenting strip clubs decided to hijack four airliners and fly them into buildings in the northeastern U.S., the area of the country that is the most thick with fighter bases. After leaving a Koran on a barstool at a strip bar after getting shitfaced drunk on the night before, then writing a suicide note/inspirational letter that sounded like it was written by someone with next to no knowledge of Islam, they went to bed and got up the next morning hung over and carried out their devious plan. Nevermind the fact that of the four "pilots" among them there was not a one that could handle a Cessna or a Piper Cub let alone fly a jumbo jet, and the one assigned the most difficult task of all, Hani Hanjour, was so laughably incompetent that he was the worst fake "pilot" of the bunch, with someone who was there when he was attempting to fly a small airplane saying that Hanjour was so clumsy that he was unsure if he had driven a car before. Nevermind the fact that they received very rudimentary flight training at Pensacola Naval Air Station, making them more likely to have been C.I.A. assets than Islamic fundamentalist terrorists. So on to the airports after Mohammed Atta supposedly leaves two rental cars at two impossibly far-removed locations. So they hijack all four airliners and at this time passengers on United 93 start making a bunch of cell phone calls from 35,000 feet in the air to tell people what was going on. Nevermind the fact that cell phones wouldn't work very well above 4,000 feet, and wouldn't work at ALL above 8,000 feet. But the conspiracy theorists won't let that fact get in the way of a good fantasy. That is one of the little things you "aren't supposed to think about". Nevermind that one of the callers called his mom and said his first and last name ("Hi mom, this is Mark Bingham"), more like he was reading from a list than calling his own mom. Anyway, when these airliners each deviated from their flight plan and didn't respond to ground control, NORAD would any other time have followed standard operating procedure (and did NOT have to be told by F.A.A. that there were hijackings because they were watching the same events unfold on their own radar) which means fighter jets would be scrambled from the nearest base where they were available on standby within a few minutes, just like every other time when airliners stray off course. But of course on 9/11 this didn't happen, not even close. Somehow these "hijackers" must have used magical powers to cause NORAD to stand down, as ridiculous as this sounds because total inaction from the most high-tech and professional Air Force in the world would be necessary to carry out their tasks. So on the most important day in its history the Air Force was totally worthless. Then they had to make one of the airliners look like a smaller plane, because unknown to them the Naudet brothers had a videocamera to capture the only known footage of the North Tower crash, and this footage shows something that is not at all like a jumbo jet, but didn't have to bother with the South Tower jet disguising itself because that was the one we were "supposed to see". Anyway, as for the Pentagon they had to have Hani Hanjour fly his airliner like it was a fighter plane, making a high G-force corkscrew turn that no real airliner can do, in making its descent to strike the Pentagon. But these "hijackers" wanted to make sure Rumsfeld survived so they went out of their way to hit the farthest point in the building from where Rumsfeld and the top brass are located. And this worked out rather well for the military personnel in the Pentagon, since the side that was hit was the part that was under renovation at the time with few military personnel present compared to construction workers. Still more fortuitous for the Pentagon, the side that was hit had just before 9/11 been structurally reinforced to prevent a large fire there from spreading elsewhere in the building. Awful nice of them to pick that part to hit, huh? Then the airliner vaporized itself into nothing but tiny unidentifiable pieces most no bigger than a fist, unlike the crash of a real airliner when you will be able to see at least some identifiable parts, like crumpled wings, broken tail section etc. Why, Hani Hanjour the terrible pilot flew that airliner so good that even though he hit the Pentagon on the ground floor the engines didn't even drag the ground!! Imagine that!! Though the airliner vaporized itself on impact it only made a tiny 16 foot hole in the building. Amazing. Meanwhile, though the planes hitting the Twin Towers caused fires small enough for the firefighters to be heard on their radios saying "We just need 2 hoses and we can knock this fire down" attesting to the small size of it, somehow they must have used magical powers from beyond the grave to make this morph into a raging inferno capable of making the steel on all forty-seven main support columns (not to mention the over 100 smaller support columns) soften and buckle, then all fail at once. Hmmm. Then still more magic was used to make the building totally defy physics as well as common sense in having the uppermost floors pass through the remainder of the building as quickly, meaning as effortlessly, as falling through air, a feat that without magic could only be done with explosives. Then exactly 30 minutes later the North Tower collapses in precisely the same freefall physics-defying manner. Incredible. Not to mention the fact that both collapsed at a uniform rate too, not slowing down, which also defies physics because as the uppermost floors crash into and through each successive floor beneath them they would shed more and more energy each time, thus slowing itself down. Common sense tells you this is not possible without either the hijackers' magical powers or explosives. To emphasize their telekinetic prowess, later in the day they made a third building, WTC # 7, collapse also at freefall rate though no plane or any major debris hit it. Amazing guys these magical hijackers. But we know it had to be "Muslim hijackers" the conspiracy theorist will tell you because (now don't laugh) one of their passports was "found" a couple days later near Ground Zero, miraculously "surviving" the fire that we were told incinerated planes, passengers and black boxes, and also "survived" the collapse of the building it was in. When common sense tells you if that were true then they should start making buildings and airliners out of heavy paper and plastic so as to be "indestructable" like that magic passport. The hijackers even used their magical powers to bring at least seven of their number back to life, to appear at american embassies outraged at being blamed for 9/11!! BBC reported on that and it is still online. Nevertheless, they also used magical powers to make the american government look like it was covering something up in the aftermath of this, what with the hasty removal of the steel debris and having it driven to ports in trucks with GPS locators on them, to be shipped overseas to China and India to be melted down. When common sense again tells you that this is paradoxical in that if the steel was so unimportant that they didn't bother saving some for analysis but so important as to require GPS locators on the trucks with one driver losing his job because he stopped to get lunch. Hmmmm. Further making themselves look guilty, the Bush administration steadfastly refused for over a year to allow a commission to investigate 9/11 to even be formed, only agreeing to it on the conditions that they get to dictate its scope, meaning it was based on the false pretense of the "official story" being true with no other alternatives allowed to be considered, handpicked all its members making sure the ones picked had vested interests in the truth remaining buried, and with Bush and Cheney only "testifying" together, only for an hour, behind closed doors, with their attorneys present and with their "testimonies" not being recorded by tape or even written down in notes. Yes, this whole story smacks of the utmost idiocy and fantastic far-fetched lying, but it is amazingly enough what some people believe. Even now, five years later, the provably false fairy tale of the "nineteen hijackers" is heard repeated again and again, and is accepted without question by so many Americans. Which is itself a testament to the innate psychological cowardice of the American sheeple, i mean people, and their abject willingness to believe something, ANYTHING, no matter how ridiculous in order to avoid facing a scary uncomfortable truth. Time to wake up America.
