9/11 was a hoax: The American government killed its own people
By John Kaminski
Online Journal Contributing Writer
March 24, 2003 - Opposed by everyone in the world who was not bought
off, the illegal invasion of Iraq was undertaken for many reasons -
the imminent replacement of the dollar by the euro as the world's
primary currency, the tempting lure of untapped oil reserves, the
desire to consolidate U.S./Israeli military hegemony over a
strategically vital region - but the most important reason was to
further obscure questions about the awesome deception staged by the
American government that has come to be known as 9/11.
9/11 was a hoax. This is no longer a wild conspiracy assertion; it is
a fact, supported by thousands of other verifiable facts, foremost of
The attacks of 9/11 could not have happened without the willful
failure of the American defense system. In Washington, Air Force
pilots demanded to fly but were ordered to stand down. Yet instead of
prosecuting George W. Bush and military leaders for this
unprecedented dereliction of duty, military leaders were promoted and
Bush was praised for presiding over a defense system that
suspiciously failed the most crucial test in its history. None of the
deaths would have happened without the deliberate unplugging of
America's air defenses.
Planes that lose contact with control towers are usually intercepted
by fighter jets inside of 10 minutes, as the incident with golfer
Payne Stewart's plane barely two years earlier so clearly
demonstrated. Yet on 9/11, the jetliners that struck New York were
allowed to proceed unmolested for more than a half-hour, and the
plane that supposedly crashed in Washington was not intercepted for
more than an hour and 40 minutes after it was widely known that four
planes had been hijacked.
The twin towers could not have collapsed as a result of burning jet
fuel. Most of that fuel was consumed on impact. In the south tower,
most of the fuel was spilled outside the building. Heat caused by
burning jet fuel does not reach temperatures needed to melt steel.
What does stand out as particularly suspicious and still unexplained
is that fires raged out of control beneath three of the collapsed
buildings for 100 days, clearly indicating the presence of some kind
of substance utilized in the demolition of the structures.
FBI Director Robert Mueller insisted officials had no idea this kind
of attack could happen when in fact the FBI had been investigating
the possibility of exactly this kind of attack for almost 10 years.
Numerous previous attempts at using planes as weapons, intimate
knowledge of terror plans called Project Bojinka, and knowledge of
suspicious characters attending flight schools who were being
monitored by the FBI make his utterance a clear lie on its face.
In the weeks before 9/11, the U.S. received warnings from all over
the world that an event just like this was about to happen, but FBI
investigations into suspected terrorists were suppressed and those
warnings were deliberately disregarded.
The names of the alleged hijackers, all ostensibly Muslims, were
released to the public only hours after the attacks, despite Mueller
saying we had no knowledge this would happen. This is an impossible
twist of logic. If he didn't know of a plan to strike buildings with
planes, how would he know the names of the hijackers? Various
artifacts were discovered in strategic places to try to confirm the
government's story, but these have all been dismissed as suspicious
planting of evidence. Since that time several names on that list have
turned up alive and well, living in Arab countries. Yet no attempt
has ever been made to update the list. And why were none of these
names on the airlines' passenger lists?
Much like the invasion of Iraq, the anthrax attacks were designed to
deflect attention from unanswered 9/11 questions in the patriotic
pandemonium that followed the tragedy. In addition to making large
amounts of money for George W.'s father and his friends from the
hasty sale of inefficient drugs to a panicked populace, the
investigation into these killings was abruptly halted when the trail
of evidence led straight to the government's door, and has not been
reopened. The anthrax attacks also ramped up the climate of fear and
deflected attention from the passage of the government's repressive
USA PATRIOT Act.
The USA PATRIOT Act was presented in the days after the tragedy
supposedly as a response to it, yet it was clear that this heinous
act, drafted to nullify provisions for freedom in the U.S.
Constitution, was put together long before 9/11. In addition,
testimony by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) revealed that most members of
Congress were compelled to vote for the bill without even reading it.
This was a vote to eliminate the Constitution's Bill of Rights, which
has defined American freedom for 200-plus years, and it was
accomplished when legislators voted for the bill without even reading
The invasion of Afghanistan was presented as an attempt to pursue the
alleged perpetrators of 9/11, yet it had been discussed for years
prior to the tragedy and actually planned in the months before the
attacks on New York and Washington. Zbigniew Brzezinski, in his book,
The Grand Chessboard, laid out a blueprint for American global
hegemony and the right-wing Project for a New American Century, in
calling for aggressive tactics, stressed that America needed a
formidable enemy to accomplish its geopolitical aims. The supposed
enemy we attacked in Afghanistan was a diverse group of men from all
over the world who were initially recruited, encouraged and supported
by the American CIA.
The hole in the Pentagon was not made by a jumbo jet. Damage to the
building was simply not consistent with the size of the hole. At the
supposed point of impact, a whole bank of windows remained unbroken
and there were no marks on the lawn. No airplane debris (except what
was planted on the lawn); nor were remains of passengers ever found.
Bush was shown on TV continuing to listen to schoolchildren reading
in a Florida school for 25 minutes after being informed of the attack
on the World Trade Center in New York. He has never explained this
puzzling behavior, nor how he saw the first plane hit. It was never
televised, only recorded by a French crew filming firemen in New York.
The plane in Pennsylvania was shot down and broke apart in midair. No
other explanation can account for the wreckage, which was spread over
a six-mile area, or the eyewitness accounts that describe debris
falling from the sky.
Cellular phone calls cannot be made from airliners in flight that are
not close to the ground. As research by Professor A. K. Dewdney has
shown, the emotional conversations between hijacked passengers and
others would not have been possible under conditions that existed at
that moment. These calls were cynical fabrications, exploiting the
distraught emotions of those who lost loved ones.
Radio communications from firefighters on the upper floors of the
Trade Center towers clearly indicate that fires were under control
and the structure was in no danger of collapsing.
These are merely a few of the deliberately false statements made by
U.S. officials about 9/11. They provide crystal clear evidence that
Bush and his administration should be indicted on charges of treason,
obstruction of justice and mass murder. Above all, these evil people
should be removed from their positions of authority before they
implement more of their moneymaking murder schemes, like the one they
are now perpetrating on the innocent people of Iraq.
Otherwise, we face a future of endless war abroad and merciless
repression at home.
Consider just a few more of the other unanswered questions from among
the thousands of unexplained loose ends that all point to 9/11 being
an inside job.
Who benefited from the suspiciously high numbers of put options
purchased prior to September 11 for shares in airline companies whose
stock prices subsequently plummeted, on the supposition that whoever
was behind the hijacking was also behind most of the purchases of
these put options? And what was the role of the CIA Executive
Director Buzzy Krongard who handled these transactions?
Why was the debris from the collapsed Twin Towers removed from the
site with no forensic examination? Why was almost all of it sold to
scrap merchants and shipped abroad where it would not be available
for scientific examination?
Why does the government refuse to release any transcripts of
communications or any records at all relating to signals of any form
transmitted by those jets?
Why did so many people, from San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown to many
employees of companies in the World Trade Center who failed to come
to work that day, know in advance that something bad was going to
happen on Sept. 11, 2001?
Why do all the major U.S. media continue to act as if none of these
questions is legitimate or relevant?
Today, millions of people around the world are protesting the
criminal destruction of the nation of Iraq. But these protests won't
change the number of minds necessary to stop America's criminal
madmen from continuing with their genocidal aim of enslaving the
What will stop them is spreading the realization that George W. Bush
and his billionaire accomplices in the oil industry perpetrated 9/11
as an excuse to begin the militarization of America for the purpose
of world conquest.
History has shown all too clearly the deceived American people will
support the destruction of faraway countries on phony pretexts of
defending so-called freedom.
Thus the needless wars continue. Right now we watch high-tech weapons
slaughter the defenseless people of Iraq. Soon it will be Iran,
Syria, Colombia, Venezuela, North Korea, Egypt, Libya, Nigeria, North
Korea, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and who knows where else. All these
misguided atrocities will be possible because of the hoax known as
But the American people will not - and cannot - tolerate leaders who
kill our own people merely to invent a pretext - the war on terror -
to go around killing anyone they like.
If the American people do tolerate such an insane strategy, then they
clearly do not deserve to survive as a nation or a people.
