9-11 facts and fiction

Peace and Blessings to all the families of the vicitims of 9/11 and the families of people who are dying still today because of it.

It seems like the other day we watched in horror as those buildings collapsed to the ground on live TV. Sept. 11, 2001 changed the face of our society. It has given us such evolutionary things as the “War on Terror,” wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the USA Patriot Act and the continued dismantling of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Yet, despite its enormous presence in our conscience, the facts surrounding the events of 9-11 and its subsequent investigation remain shrouded in contradictions, fabrications and dark secrecy. Eight years later, millions of concerned American citizens, including families of the victims, are still demanding a reinvestigation of 9-11 to find out what truly happened. With just a little exploration into this realm, one is soon confronted with heavy resistance, and long list of unanswered questions.

“The Official Story” is the description given of the events of 9-11 by the government-appointed investigation and its findings, the so called the 9-11 Commission.

Masterminded by Osama Bin Laden from a cave in Afghanistan, 19 Islamic terrorists hijacked four commercial aircraft with box cutters and plastic knives and then proceeded to fly two planes into the World Trade Center and one into the Pentagon; another coming down in Pennsylvania after the passengers charged the cockpit.

Many things have been said both questioning the facts of the story, and defending it. It is sometimes hard to separate the fact from the fiction. But these things, I do know:

We have a state-of-the-art air-defense system. Washington DC and New York City are home to some of the most secure airspace in the world. Within minutes of a commercial plane losing communication contact with ground control, the military is notified and fighter jets are scrambled to investigate. This happened 125 times in 2000, the year prior. On 9-11, the plane that eventually flew into the Pentagon was in the air for more than 40 minutes between losing contact and crashing into the wall of the Pentagon. Similar lag times are true of the New York flights as well. What is clear is that on 9-11, the defense procedures that are in place and working every other day, were nowhere to be found.

War-game exercises were taking place in the same airspace as the attacks were occurring on 9-11, some of which involved a simulated hijacking of plane and flying it into a building in Washington DC. This had the effect of confusing the radar system, which was peppered with both real and simulated hijackings during the critical response time. And who was in charge of NORAD and these military exercises at this time? Dick Cheney.

“Three months prior to 9-11, VP Cheney usurped control of NORAD (the military arm responsible for air defense), and did not return it to military operation until 3 months after,” according to David Icke’s Guide to the Global Conspiracy.

At a town hall meeting shortly after 9-11, President George W. Bush was describing what was happening that morning. He said that shortly before going into the room to speak with some children at a school, he was watching TV and saw the first plane crash into the World Trade Center.

“I thought it was just a bad pilot”, he said, and was whisked away into the room to read My Pet Goat for the kids. There is just one problem with that scenario. No one saw the first plane hit towers until several days later when video of it surfaced. There is no way he could have possibly seen that footage that morning, unless he knew what was going to happen.

According to the website, video from BBC News shows correspondent Jane Standley reporting on the collapse of WTC Building 7 more than 20 minutes before it fell at 5;20 p.m. on the afternoon of 9-11. Tapes from earlier BBC broadcasts show news anchors discussing the collapse of WTC 7 a full 26 minutes in advance.

Hundreds of eyewitness accounts, including first responders, fire captains, news reporters and police, all describe multiple explosions in both towers before and during the collapse.

This is just scratching the surface of the mountain of evidence suggesting that the official story of 9-11 is a lie. Prior knowledge by forces within the government of what was about to take place on that day is quite evident. One could easily stand to reason that (A) they knew it was going to happen and allowed it to, or (B), they caused it to happen My opinion? Well, I think that this was carried out by a group of shape-shifting Reptilian/Human hybrids who aim to further centralize power and maintain a tighter control over a fear-stricken, enslaved human race, but like Levar Burton would say on “Reading Rainbow,” don’t take my word for it.
