The Anniversary of 9/11

Don't want to hear this?

Tough. Grow up.

9/11 Commissioners:

  • And the Senior Counsel to the 9/11 Commission (John Farmer) - who led the 9/11 staff's inquiry - recently said "At some level of the government, at some point in time...there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened". He also said "I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described .... The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years.... This is not spin. This is not true." And he said: "It's almost a culture of concealment, for lack of a better word. There were interviews made at the FAA's New York center the night of 9/11 and those tapes were destroyed. The CIA tapes of the interrogations were destroyed. The story of 9/11 itself, to put it mildly, was distorted and was completely different from the way things happened"
If even the 9/11 Commissioners don't buy the official story, why do you?

Senior intelligence officers:
  • Former military analyst and famed whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg said that the case of a certain 9/11 whistleblower is "far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers". He also said that the government is ordering the media to cover up her allegations about 9/11. And he said that some of the claims concerning government involvement in 9/11 are credible, that "very serious questions have been raised about what they [U.S. government officials] knew beforehand and how much involvement there might have been", that engineering 9/11 would not be humanly or psychologically beyond the scope of the current administration, and that there's enough evidence to justify a new, "hard-hitting" investigation into 9/11 with subpoenas and testimony taken under oath (see this and this)
  • A decorated 20-year CIA veteran, who Pulitzer-Prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh called "perhaps the best on-the-ground field officer in the Middle East”, and whose astounding career formed the script for the Academy Award winning motion picture Syriana (Robert Baer) said that "the evidence points at" 9/11 having had aspects of being an inside job
If even our country's top intelligence officers don't buy the official story, why do you?


  • Former U.S. Republican Congressman and senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, and who served six years as the Chairman of the Military Research and Development Subcommittee Curt Weldon has shown that the U.S. tracked hijackers before 9/11, is open to hearing information about explosives in the Twin Towers, and is open to the possibility that 9/11 was an inside job
If there is bipartisan questioning of the official story, why aren't you questioning it?

Other government officials:
  • Former Deputy Secretary for Intelligence and Warning under Nixon, Ford, and Carter (Morton Goulder), former Deputy Director to the White House Task Force on Terrorism (Edward L. Peck), and former US Department of State Foreign Service Officer (J. Michael Springmann), as well as a who's who of liberals and independents) jointly call for a new investigation into 9/11
  • Former Federal Prosecutor, Office of Special Investigations, U.S. Department of Justice under Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan; former U.S. Army Intelligence officer, and currently a widely-sought media commentator on terrorism and intelligence services (John Loftus) says "The information provided by European intelligence services prior to 9/11 was so extensive that it is no longer possible for either the CIA or FBI to assert a defense of incompetence"
If top government officials are skeptical, why aren't you?

Numerous other politicians, judges, legal scholars, and attorneys also question at least some aspects of the government's version of 9/11.


  1. Wow. Tremendously powerful post.

  2. America needs to suck it up and DEMAND the truth about 9/11/01. If the story goes that our government was in collusion with or author of, the 9/11 tragedy then, let the government fall. Hold all those responsible to account and get on with the war crimes tribunals. You know, on account of Iraq War Redo Two.

  3. No one will ever be held accountable. All the congress and senate would be indited. Just who is going to investigate this? You, You, did not think so.

  4. What, I can't believe my govt. You mean that when they say Trust us we're from the govt. it's a lie.
    I have to agree with Ranson, even the new wh won't look into it again. Just the same players only the names have change.

  5. The main point I'd like to make is that there is a big difference between

    A)the government covering up or lying about its own failed intelligence activities and antiterrorism policies in an effort to avoid embarrassment, loss of confidence, and to prevent additional oversight or accountability.

    and B) the government actively conspiring to cause 9/11 to happen or allow 9/11 to happen.

    The inconsistencies and lies point to the former, but the latter seems to be the direction that the 9/11 truth movements always seem to go in. Just my 2/c

  6. You forgot to mention one of the most important facts surrounding 9/11: That Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta stated under sworn testimony that Dick Cheney was in the EOC command center at least 30 minutes earlier than he claims and was being given status updates on the plane approaching the Pentagon (50 miles out....40 miles out...30 miles out, etc) yet gave no scramble order. In fact, Mineta seemed to imply that it seemed like Cheney had given an explicit order NOT to scramble or shoot down the plane and became very agitated when this order was questioned by an underling.

  7. I know a Bedouin in the caves of Afghanistan with a cell phone beat the most sophisticated air defenses in the world Norad which I think was only a 10 min. flight time away.

    I still believe in our fighter pilots. They would have hunted down those jets and shot them into eternity if they were given the intercept order. They weren't.

    Bin Laden died in Tora Bora in 2001.

    The Taliban actually offered to hand him over with evidence.

    There was a planned invasion before 9-11.

    Project For A New American Century, Clean Break
    Your governments official documents called for
    invading Afghanistan, Iraq and then bomb, bomb, bomb Iran. Their documents and you don't hear about that much. Written well before 9-11.

    They tried to negotiate the pipeline price with the Taliban; they wanted too much.

    It's all smoke and mirrors
    It's all a grand illusion
    It's a damn dog and pony show
    It's a big lie

    I know Bin Laden managed to get his hands on military grade Nano Thermite only possed by the Israeli and American Military. The list of inconsistencies and impossible is endless if you really start digging.

    That, that is why our 4th estate does not touch it critically. It can't stand scrutiny and they know it.

    9-11 was Mossad - Al/Cia'da and I have no doubt.

    Have you noticed the our soldiers are guarding the Poppies for the Opium Trade the Taliban had actually almost eliminated.

    It is an old tactic called false flag terrorism
    It's an old tactic; all been done before.
    Hitler executed it with the Reichstag

    History Repeats
    Solomon was right There's nothing new under the sun.

    I know they hate us for our freedom the big lie mantra. Joseph Goebbels would be so proud.

    How much freedom have you lost since 9-11?
    Chew on it long and hard.

    Fascism Rising

    The real reason we are in Afghanistan spending our blood and treasure.

    Cheap Labor
    Cheap Oil Pipelines
    Control of oil and other natural resources
    Your damn CIA and others are the biggest damn drug dealers on this earth I am almost sure.

    In Afghan fields the poppies grow.
    Between the crosses.
    Row on row.

    It's the damn truth.

    There is no Muslim out to get you in Oceania's fake never ending war.

    War is a racket.

    As the death hunt for the dead boogy man Osama continues.

    and so the lying game goes.

  8. But what is your positive evidence for a conspiracy?

    Easy to find things in a complex situation that aren't answered sufficiently - and it's certainly no surprise to find "the state" giving poor/wrong information. It's a long way from there to suggesting some conspiracy.

    SO what is your positive evidence for a conspiracy?

  9. After examining all the information that I could find on the events that happened on 9/11 presented by 9/11 Firefighters for Truth and the Engineers and Architects for 9/11 Truth and other sources; I can only conclude that there was indeed a very deep conspiracy inside the Bush administration to commit such an act of Treason.
    Any rational person sitting down to examine the 9/11 facts would come to the same conclusion.
    I get a kick out of the two agents who posted their desperate rebuttals to the 9/11 evident.
    Irrational Doomsday said: “A)the government covering up or lying about its own failed intelligence activities and antiterrorism policies in an effort to avoid embarrassment, loss of confidence, and to prevent additional oversight or accountability.”
    You admit “covering up or lying” but not conspiracy, how quaint. Ha. Ha.
    Last Name Left said: “Easy to find things in a complex situation that aren't answered sufficiently - and it's certainly no surprise to find "the state" giving poor/wrong information. It's a long way from there to suggesting some conspiracy.
    You also admit that they are lying in a cover up “it's certainly no surprise to find "the state" giving poor/wrong information.” Yet you deny a conspiracy. Ha. Ha. I suppose WMD was also not a conspiracy. Ha Ha.
    If the Traitors to our country were brought to Justice for the 9/11 attacks, how would that change our world today and the justification for a 9 year war?
    The 21st. Century would be the age of Enlightenment instead of the age of Tyranny.

  10. To that list you can also add all the architects, engineers, firefighters, pilots, first responders, etc.

    As for evidence of inside job, that is exactly why we demand an investigation, but for starters look at this:

    And for a good overall introduction go here:

  11. Vickie-I want to hear more-start blogging.

  12. Did they do a standard job of covering up their incompetence, or a hyper-competent job of covering up their nefariousness?

  13. Anyone lloking for evidence of high level involvement can see that World Trade Center #7 was brought down by controlled demolitions.

    Once you see that, it becomes quite clear that an entity like Al Qaeda could not have done this type of job.

    Then your mind will slowly accept the fact that the other 2 towers could not have fallen without assistance from high powered explosions and incindiary material, far beyond jet fuel.

    Thank you Washingtons Blog for keeping this most important issue in your scopes!

  14. The government of the United States is too big and too important to fail. A 9/11 investigation and its revelations would be a trauma the country couldn't handle without devastating disruptions to the establishment and consequently our society and our economy. It's better to accept what's happened and move on.

  15. Very good post.

    People should know about the new TV ad by 9/11 family members asking the American people to learn about Building 7.

    Watch it here:

  16. Thank you for this great post. I reposted on a new site launching this weekend:

  17. Now I know that yanks are dumb.
    An Anniversary, is what you name something that occurs every year, but in a positive light.
    When you wish to remember a past horrific event, such as a war, or a disaster, it is called a commemoration, not a bloody anniversary.
    Go back to school and do English/Endlish 101, OK?

  18. Re: Mary

    I think that an "establishment", entrusted with the highest office in the land,

    That betrays the people of that land, & is willing to sacrifice nearly 3,000 of those people,

    So as to justify an illegal, immoral & inhumane war, invasion & occupation of another country & it's innocent people,

    Half way 'round the world,

    That they are NOT under any threat from, never mind being attacked by,

    NEEDS to be "disrupted" & held accountable for their high crimes...don't you?????

    And as for the trauma the country couldn't handle, where on earth is the logic in that?

    That's somethhing like expecting a battered woman to stay in the abusive relationship for a lifetime of battering because she couldn't handle the trauma of leaving!

    Or how about if someone went on a killing spree, & massacred 3,000 people?

    Do you think we should just accept what he did, & move on, because of the "disruption" & "trauma" it would cause the victims' families?????

  19. "And yet we can document that George Washington did not chop down a cherry tree, Lincoln did not free the slaves (they became subjects of the Federal District, the District of Columbia), The War with Mexico was begun by General Zachary Taylor's provocations along the Nueces River, the battleship Maine blew up from the inside, Woodrow Wilson knew that the Lusitania was carrying US munitions to the war in Europe and would be sunk, Franklin D. Roosevelt had maneuvered the Japanese into an attack on Pearl Harbor and had cut fuel shipments to the Pacific fleet to ensure the presence of enough old ships to offer a tempting target, Truman knew that there were other good alternatives to an invasion of Japan and did not need to drop the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Roosevelt knew about the NAZI concentration camps, LBJ knew that there was no attack on the Maddox and Turner Joy in the Gulf of Tonkin when he asked for a Congressional Resolution to attack North Vietnam, and the US government had been warned by numerous documented sources that there would be an attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. All of this is from documented historical sources. Yet we continue to believe the myths that are in our histories, our movies, our mainstream media and our mass consciousness. John F Kennedy warned us that,

    "The great enemy of the Truth is very often not the lie - deliberate, contrived, and dishonest - but the myth - persistent, persuasive and realistic". "

  20. We need to stand up collectively and demand an investigation into these reports of cover-up by reputable and credible government officials, CIA agents, and congressmen. Are we asleep as a country, numbed out of our minds, too busy in our private lives? Where is our responsiblity, our outrage?

  21. The moron who called the 'yanks dumb' have to understand the so called 9/11 ceremonies/anniverseries or wherever are part of the show/deception put together by the power elite, to 'remember' their crimes. They do it all the time! Just look your pathetic english speaking countries in Europe keep celebrating all kind of crimes against humanity!!

  22. The job was not done by the "government" as a whole, it was done by rogue elements both within and without the government.

  23. 1. Follow the money.
    2. Follow the money.
    3. Don't forget 1 and 2.

    There need not have been actual engineering of the 9/11 attacks by the Bush admin, but it certainly enabled them, and when they happened, the admin was quick to take advantage of the situation, and in fact amplified the effects of the attacks immediately for maximum effect.

    The buildings were all imploded by pre-planted charges, this is obvious. When were those charges planted, and by whom? After the attempted bombing of the WTC in 1993, a decision was made to implement a fail-safe system, such that if the structural integrity of the buildings was compromised (which had been the intent of the '93 bombing, to cause one of the buildings to fall into the other), they could be dropped into their own footprint, to spare lower Manhattan and especially Wall Street from being destroyed. Hence, following the '93 attempt, charges were planted carefully, over time, throughout both buildings. When the attacks occurred on 9/11, an immediate high-level conference occurred, at which it was decided to bring the buildings down--including WTC 7, which housed evidence and even perhaps the mechanisms of the buildings' demolition. Everyone in power benefited; it was a win-win for all except the proximate victims and the courageous people who went into the ruins subsequently. And of course the nation as a whole.

    I believe certain people were not informed, in order to ensure "plausible deniability." These included, of course, the idiot president himself.

    Oh, and of course Flight 93 was shot down, and a story created about the courageous passengers. There's nothing the people love better when a war is being fabricated than a good tear-jerking melodrama about ordinary citizens coming through in a crisis and sacrificing themselves to save their country.

  24. Actually, given GWB family it is likely that he is not that much of an idiot. Some brain damage is inevitable given his alleged drug use. He possibly needed to dope himself because of his involvement with the family business which is not oil! They are from Maine, not Texas!

  25. Google "9/11 Nukes - Radiation-induced cancers"

  26. Here is the BBC reporting the destruction of building 7 - some 20 minutes before it happened and the building was still standing behind the presenter.

    How much proof do you Americans need? Do they put something in your breakfast cereals?

  27. Great post. Great comments, too. Yes, the country faces catharsis when it finally wakes up to the 911 Truth. It would be wonderful if we Americans could deal with the revelations in a mature manner. That's not likely, though. The bullies in charge will just go "wah wah," lashing out. "Send in the Predator drones!: No one tells America it has faults. My guess is that we're stuck with all this collective denial for a while, perhaps until all generations that experienced the day of 9/11 are dead. Then, finally, we'll get a documentary on TV that admits it all. But by then, it won't matter and the perps will have all gone free.

  28. It's very disheartening to see only twenty-nine comments on the biggest crime committed against US citizens in my lifetime.

  29. Jacob Javitz, Lenny Shavitz, and Ari Blabitz came to me in a dream and told me "Not all the truth be done being told about 911."

    I mean, wowie zowie, you could be right! Maybe all the truth isn't being told. which, of course, opens up large troughs of interesting conjecture.

    I heard the Hijackers ate PORK the morning of the 911, and it wasn't kosher!!!

  30. As thousands of physicists, engineers, military professionals and airline pilots have testified, the idea that 19 barely-trained Arabs armed with box-cutters could divert four US commercial jets and execute the near-impossible strikes on the Twin Towers and Pentagon over a time period of 93 minutes with not one Air Force NORAD military interception, is beyond belief.

    The defining moment in establishing complicity in the 9/11 attacks was watching George Bush calmly sitting in a classroom full of school kids after he had been informed the second jet crashed into the towers. A YouTube video demonstrates that at the precise moment Bush was listening to a story of a pet goat, his "fellow Americans" were jumping to their deaths from the towering inferno.

    It stands to reason that when a country is under attack, the President is the prime target in such an aggression, and under normal circumstances, would be immediately whisked away to a secure location.

    Certainly no benevolent leader would needlessly endanger the lives of innocent school children by remaining in their presence during such a crisis... unless of course this leader had forewarning of the attack and knew there was no cause for alarm because he was already in a secure location.

    Instead of making a statement to the class about an urgent matter he had to attend, Bush and his staff remained listening to the children read. It must have been quite the compelling story.

    If I had been a parent of one of the children, I would have wanted answers as to why Bush and his cronies remained at the school when they clearly knew, or should have, that a terrorist attack was underway.

    At any rate, Bush's contradictory statements and vague recollection of what took place that day can only be taken as an admission of guilt, despite his obvious lack of intellect.
