Ten years can go by pretty quickly. I remember exactly where I was that Tuesday morning, but I’m not going to bore you with ‘my story’. Over the last week leading up to this anniversary I’m sure that you’ve already heard dozens of people give you their ‘where were you on 9/11’ schpeel. No, instead of going with that angle I am going to use this article to ask some questions that are extremely obvious but rarely brought up by the general public. I feel that the best thing we can do for the victims of 9/11 is to find out what actually happened that day. I had one person imply I was selfish for using this date to post and promote my blog. If that’s how some see it that’s fine by me; because I know that the only reason I’m doing this is to get the word out about the upcoming conflict so we can be best prepared to deal with it. The day of 9/11 was the turning point for our society and there are way too many questions remaining. I want answers to them. I think you will too.
How was the castle wall breached?
A 5-story, 6,500,000 square foot concrete structure known as the Pentagon sits on a 280-acre plot of land here in Arlington, Virginia. You may have heard of it. It serves as the nerve center of the greatest military mankind has ever known, and on any given day more than 25,000 of the nation’s best and brightest can be found within. To say that America’s castle wall was breached by a rogue commercial aircraft helmed by a group of terrorists from a cave is laughable at best.
The first aircraft hit the North tower at 8:46 AM, and the second plane hit the South tower at 9:03 AM. It wasn’t until more than half an hour later at 9:38 AM that the Pentagon was struck. One could see the inability of the nation’s air defense to prevent the first strike…perhaps even the second…but you’re telling me that the greatest military of all-time can’t identify and shoot down a lumbering jumbo jet, when said jumbo jet is heading straight for DC Airspace? I don’t have any military experience, but as an avid gamer I will tell you this: You never leave your capital unprotected. I’m not saying that The Pentagon and DC area have a secret laser weapon that can destroy anything in seconds, but I’m pretty sure the area was hardened against aerial attack from the Soviets decades ago. You’re telling me the DC area doesn’t have one SAM turret? You’re saying there weren’t 5 squads of F-18s in the air patrolling a 40 mile radius minutes after the first tower was hit? It’s a joke.
Let’s not forget to mention the difficulty of the maneuver in of itself. It’s been admitted by the mainstream media that the terrorists were barely proficient pilots; the flight schools they trained at (which were in the US, by the way) gave them poor reviews, and the instructors had concerns about their ability to fly by themselves after leaving the school. Of course, this training was at the helm of an aircraft much smaller and easier to fly than the one hijacked and smashed into the Pentagon. I have strong doubts that these n00b pilots could pull off these maneuvers while at the controls of a massive Boeing. It takes years and years of training before you can even operate a Boeing, and they hit a 5 story building, square-on, at several hundred miles per hour?
There are some ‘official’ rebuttals to these and the other issues I will bring up, but they’re superfluous at the best and downright falsified at worst. I’m not trying to tell you what happened on 9/11 because I don’t know what happened, and only a few people really do. All I know is 3,000 innocent people died and people have been in such a state of shock that they never asked the tough questions. Well, 10 years is long enough in my opinion.
That’s a quote from former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld when he was asked a few months ago about the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. When people think of 9/11, they obviously think of the towers first. Some people will then go on to think about the Pentagon or the fate of flight 93 which was downed in Pennsylvania. Almost no one ever mentions Building 7. I think this is because people either never heard of Building 7 or their memory is slipping a bit like Rummy’s. As a quick overview, Building 7 was in the World Trade Center complex near the towers. While it may not have looked impressive in the midst of the lower Manhattan skyline, it stood at over 600 feet and would have been the largest building in 39 of the 50 States. It collapsed at free-fall into its own footprint at 5:20 PM on September 11th, but pretty much no one knows that.
The story of this building is extremely interesting for several reasons, the first being that the official story has changed several times. I have one of those ‘flash memories’ of this building coming down and thinking it was demolished, and I specifically remember them mentioning that ‘they were taking it down’ at some point in the day’s coverage. I’ve gone online and found several other instances of newscasters, firefighters, and officials discussing countdowns and plans to bring the building down during that afternoon. The first flip-flop took the form of a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) report that blamed the collapse of Building 7 on uncontrolled fire. This report rejected the hypothesis that structural damage from the falling twin towers was a primary reason for the collapse of the structure, and that the main reason it fell was because of fire. There was no mention of a demolition or planned collapse.
So we have firefighters telling people to get back because ‘they’re going to bring it down’, we have newscasters announcing the fall of the building before it fell (Click Here), but we have a FEMA report that says it fell from fire. Check out this video and let me know if that looks like a random collapse from fire or if it looks like a demolition. I’m not an engineer or an architect, but I do know that a building fire does not burn hot enough to weaken steel to such a point that it allows for a free-fall collapse. Only a small portion of the building was on fire, if you look at video from the day you can see that only one corner of the building is really showing flame or heavy smoke. There have been dozens of steel-structure buildings gutted by fire in the past 50 years; the only one to fall was Building 7.
So what’s the big deal? Maybe they just demolished the building and told everyone it was from fire so they could get the insurance money. Well, that’s possible, but I have a little surprise for you. Building 7 was a repository for hundreds of thousands of confidential and Top Secret files. The evidence and documentation for nearly 4,000 Securities and Exchange Commission cases against Wall Street was in the building, as were other federal investigative files. Many of these files were not backed up anywhere else due to their extremely confidential nature. As one agent said, “All the evidence that we stored at 7 World Trade, in all our cases, went down with the building”. I smell Bankster involvement.
Are we really safer a decade later?
Whether you believe the Official Faerie Tale of 9/11 or not, I’m sure you are in agreement that things were taken too far afterwards. Even if you believe that four planes could be simultaneously hijacked by men who had been living in caves, and 3 of the four would hit their targets with precision, you have to admit that the events of that day have been used to take away American freedoms for a decade. The Patriot Act is an abomination to the Constitution. A variety of Executive Orders given by Bush and continued by Obama make them de facto dictators in ‘a time of crisis’ (financial meltdown counts). That afternoon our good friend Donald Rumsfeld was quoted asking his staff to find any and all connection between the attacks and Saddam Hussein. Of course, we know there never was a connection, just as we now know that there were no weapons of mass destruction, but tell that to the nearly one million Iraqis who have died in the last 8 years. Tell that to the thousands upon thousands of US Men and Women who lost their lives, lost their friends, and lost their souls for no reason. Afghanistan is just as bad. You see, we setup al-Qaeda and the Taliban to act as a thorn in the side of the Soviets back in the 70s and 80s. Now we’re stuck fighting them, spilling countless gallons of blood and $5.5 Trillion in treasure so that more ‘extremists’ don’t pull off another impossible feat.
These are the simple facts: More people in America die per year of bee-stings or a peanut allergy than die from terrorist attacks. I’m all for preventing a suitcase nuke from being detonated in DC, mostly because I’d be dead in 0.05 seconds, but the “War on Terror” is nothing more than a cash-cow for the military industrial complex and an indoctrination into a Police State by the Department of Homeland Security. As I’ve mentioned before, this Police State was touted as the answer to preventing radical Islamists from striking again, but its true purpose will be to lock down the streets of America when the planned and coordinated economic collapse hits. Well, the collapse has begun, and it’s only going to get worse in the coming months. At this rate you will be worrying where you next meal comes from in two years, and that’s on the conservative side. The American People will be begging for the TSA on the streets and the burning of the Bill of Rights to save them from the starving masses. Luckily the Department of Homeland Security has developed a solid footing post-9/11 from which to keep us under control.
The best way to remember the fallen?
I think discussing these issues is the best way to show respect to the innocent people who perished 10 years ago. Having a moment of silence before NFL Season openers is fine, so is showing heart-wrenching documentaries on network television. However, I believe it serves as an injustice to everyone affected to take the government’s official Faery Tale as fact and not ask the tough questions. So what really happened on 9/11? Well, I don’t know, but neither does the official 9/11 Commission. Six out of the ten members admitted that they could not draw firm conclusions on events of the day because so much evidence had been deemed ‘classified’ and locked away, never to be see again. All I know is that if you look at the story in detail with an open, analytical mind, you will find that it’s a total farce. Once you realize this you begin to see who benefited from the attacks; of course, the rabbit hole usually just leads to more and more questions, but that’s fine by me. I’d rather be asking the questions than mindlessly accepting the propaganda. God Bless the victims of 9/11 and God Bless America.
