Re: The Truth About 9/11 Conspiracy Theories
- May 30, 2006 --
"The latest audio tape attributed to Osama bin Laden appears to be
one more installment in a succession of evidence fabricated by the
US government to deceive the American people, according to Scholars
for 9/11 Truth. "This tape is only the latest in a series of
fabrications intended to mislead the American people," said James H.
Fetzer, the society's founder. "The closer we get to revealing the
truth about 9/11, the more furiously the government fights to
conceal it!" He said members of Scholars and other experts had
detected evidence of fakery.
In this new recording, a voice attributed to Osama bin Laden asserts
that Zacarias Moussaoui was not involved in 9/11, which he knew to
be the case because he had personally assigned the 19 hijackers
involved in those events. The Osama of this tape thereby implicitly
confesses his responsibility for orchestrating the attacks. However,
in a tape released on December 27, 2001, the authenticity of which
is not in doubt, Osama denied having had anything to do with
9/11. "Moreover," Fetzer added, "some of the 19 hijackers
he 'personally assigned' have turned up alive and well."
To be sure, this new tape is not the first one in which bin Laden
appears to take responsibility for the attacks. As David Ray
Griffin, a prominent member of Scholars, points out, "The Osama on
the video tape that appeared on December 13, 2001, confessed to
planning the 9/11 attacks. But he is far darker and much heavier
than the real Osama bin Laden. People can see the difference by
looking up 'The Fake bin Laden Video Tape' on Google."
Griffin's point is supported by a work-in-progress by members of
Scholars for 9/11 Truth, which appears on its web site under the
heading, "9/11: Have we been lied to?" It offers evidence of fakery
in some of the videos based upon various physical properties of the
figures that are presumed to be Osama, pointing out that there are
differences in the ears, cheeks, eyebrows, length of the nose and
shape of the nostrils. "The use of computer analysis can 'fine tune'
these questions of facial characteristics," Fetzer said, "but the
gross differences already show they are not the same."
"Another problem with the video of December 13, 2001," Griffin
pointed out, "was that its stocky bin Laden praised two of the
alleged hijackers, Wail M. Al-Shehri and Salem al-Hazmi, by name,
and yet both the London Telegraph and the Saudi embassy reported
several days after 9/11 that al-Hazmi was still alive and working in
Saudi Arabia. Given the fact that the earlier video in which Osama
confessed was clearly a fake, we should be suspicious of this latest
A professor at Duke, Bruce Lawrence, who has published Messages to
the World: The Statements of Osama bin Laden, expressed profound
skepticism about a tape that was released January 17, 2006, in a
report that appeared two days later. "There's nothing in this from
the Koran," Lawrence said. "He's, by his own standards, a faithful
Muslim who quotes scripture in defense of his actions. There's no
quotation from the Koran in the excerpts we got, no reference to
specific events, no reference to past atrocities." Lawrence also
observed the tape ran only 10 minutes, whereas the shortest previous
tape, at 18 minutes, was nearly twice as long.
Fetzer noted that many of the same anomalous properties are found in
the latest tape. "Compared to Osama's past performances," he
observed, "this message is too short, too direct, and full of
falsehoods. It was even described on CBS News by Bob Schieffer
as 'almost American'." A translation of the text of the tape has
also been released by IntelCenter, a private company that does
contract work for the US government. "I suppose I would be accused
of being a 'conspiracy theorist' to suggest there is any
connection," Fetzer added.
Authentic Voice/Fake Content
Informed that Reuters news agency has reported confirmation that the
voice on the tape is indeed that of Osama bin Laden, Fetzer
replied, "The fact that the voice is his does not prove that the
tape is authentic. We have had phony tapes before using voices that
were authentic. Mark Bingham, a passenger on Flight 93, is supposed
to have called his mother and said, 'Hi, Mom, this is Mark Bingham!'
His mother confirmed it was his voice, but does anyone seriously
believe that Mark Bingham would have used his last name in
identifying himself to his mother?"
Griffin agreed, adding, "Back in 1999, William Arkin published an
article entitled, 'When Seeing and Hearing isn't Believing' (which
can also be accessed on Google). Describing the new technology
of 'voice morphing' (or 'voice synthesizing'), Arkin explained that,
if audio technicians have a recording of your voice, then they can
create a tape in which your voiceyour authentic voice!says
anything they wish."
In a press release on April 22, 2006, the Scholars observed that a
tape played at the trail of Zacarias Moussaoui included discussion
among the passengers about using a drink cart to break down the
cabin door alleged to have been picked up on a cockpit voice
recorder, which does not record conversations in the passenger
cabin. "This is not the first and certainly will not be the last
time that the American government plays the American people for
suckers," Fetzer said."
- Hi Dottie,
So what is the nature of soul? How do you understand your soul in relation
to your 'I' (lower and higher). When one askes what is the nature of soul,
we ask where it began, how it has developed (the stages in the education of
the human being) what happens to it when it is fully transformed? So a soul
which is worked on by our higher member, transforms (to spirit self) and
when fully transformed, how does it relate to the lower members of the human
being. We know that for the heirarchies above us, there lowest members are
to be found in the human higher members. So if a human transforms all of his
lowest members, as Christ showed us the Son of Man (i.e. no more physical,
etheric, astral) but spirit self, life spirit and spirit man, what then is
the lowest member, and is the human then not on a higher level than the
current human stage?
What is your current soul life experience? Will your soul continue with you
when you cross the threshold? or only part of it? or none of it? Do you need
a soul in the spiritual world? When you cross the threshold, how will it be
with the soul, what will you know of it there; is it the I that will
traverse the heavens or the I and the soul? When we sleep we take the soul
with us, why do we do this? Do we identify more with our soul than our I? If
so, how can we tell, or how can we change this? or do we want to change
When we gain an understanding of our theosophy, will we have a better
understanding of the mysteries and the questions you have posed? The complex
of what is the Nathan Soul, did not Prokofieff write entire chapters on
this? To understand the Nathan Soul, do you think it would not be good to
study this material? How does one do that on the net? The net is very
limitied don't you think, for human to human interaction.? Isn't all one
gets on here just dry ibones so to speak? Where is the feeling realm of the
soul on here?
Not sure if this is what you had in mind Dottie?
