The clearer we thought we saw 9/11, the easier we were to fool

You’d have to think it would be just about impossible to deceive the world about a catastrophic event like 9/11 because everything happened in broad daylight in front of thousands of people wouldn’t you?
But maybe it’s just the opposite. Maybe it’s the fact that thousands saw it in person and millions watched it over and over on TV that has made it so easy for us to be fooled. The bigger the lie, the more people will believe it, as Hitler said.
Most of us are desperate to believe what we’re told. We think that if we question everything we see and hear, then we’ll never know what’s real and what’s not. This fact is taken advantage of by Continue reading

Cheney appears to order stand-down, allowing Pentagon crash

October 29, 2010

Did Dick Cheney give orders to allow a plane, allegedly American Airlines Flight 77, to hit the Pentagon on the morning of Sept. 11?
It seems that he did if you listen to one of his own cabinet colleagues at the time.
Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta told the 9/11 Commission in 2003 that when he arrived in the Presidential Emergency Operations Centre (PEOC) in the basement of the White House around 9:20 a.m. on Sept. 11, Cheney was already there, as was Mrs. Cheney. The second World Trade Center tower was hit at 9:03.
Mineta said that shortly after he arrived, he witnessed an exchange between Cheney and a young, unidentified man. Mineta seemed not to realize the importance of what he was saying. He told the commission:
“During the time that the airplane was coming in to 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 Continue reading

Who’s in charge? The unlikely travels of George Bush on 9/11

October 20, 2010

By Craig McKee

So we know that before 10 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, President George W. Bush behaved very suspiciously. He remained in a Florida classroom reading with students while disaster unfolded.
We know the Secret Service did not take steps to protect the president during the most catastrophic attack ever on American soil. He stayed at the school against all protocol, and no one made any effort to get him out of there. He might have been a terrorist target but he just sat there, endangering an entire school full of children.
We know that Chief of Staff Andrew Card told Bush that America was under attack while he sat with the children, but didn’t say any more and didn’t wait for any response from Bush.
And Bush made no move to say anything to anyone. No instructions, no questions. He didn’t Continue reading

Military wasn’t worried ‘campaign of terror’ secret would come out

October 11, 2010

By Craig McKee

A buddy of mine told me the other day that he could never believe that 9/11 was an inside job because it would be impossible to keep a secret that big.
I think this is how a lot of people feel. They might be able to accept that criminal elements in government could be ruthless enough to try it, but they just can’t believe they could keep it quiet.
But they haven’t kept it quiet – not really. If they had, we’d all be forcefully standing by the official 9/11 story. We’d all believe the myth that Muslim terrorists were behind the whole thing. But there are so many gaping holes in the government’s version of what happened that many don’t believe this. Continue reading

Can’t believe U.S. would unleash terror on its citizens? They tried

October 9, 2010

They wanted to murder civilians in major American cities, blow up a plane painted to look like a civilian airliner, sink a military ship, and even fake an attack on their own naval base.
The year was 1962. The creators of the plan were the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States of America. The goal was to get the public on board for an invasion of Cuba.
And it’s all a matter of public record. It’s not a conspiracy theory, it’s a fact.
The Joint Chiefs also discussed the possibility that disaster might strike Mercury astronaut John Glenn in his bid to become the first American to orbit the earth. If Glenn died in an accident, they were prepared to fake evidence that the rocket had been sabotaged by Fidel Castro using some kind of radio interference.
Unfortunately for them, the flight went off without a hitch and Glenn lived. Continue reading

The rush to judgment: a familiar pattern labels Oswald a killer

Oswald was silenced by Jack Ruby.
September 13, 2010

By Craig McKee

When I started this blog, 9/11 was just supposed to be one of the topics to be addressed. But in doing research on the subject, I found myself becoming more and more captivated. And more and more angry.
The story has so many angles, so many questions, so many lies, so many glaring omissions. When the attacks first happened I assumed, like most people, that Osama bin Laden was indeed responsible. I may have hated Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld, but that didn’t make me question the official account.
The event was so huge, so destructive, so shocking that the idea that anyone other than Bush’s “evil doers” had been involved seemed unthinkable. I should have known better. As a firm believer that John Continue reading
