Did You Know?


Armed guards were immediately posted at the World Trade Center site to prevent anyone examining the debris or even taking photographs of it. And then the debris was promptly shipped out of the country.

The best evidence of what struck the Pentagon is the images captured by surveillance cameras in the area. The videos from nearby surveillance cameras were quickly seized by the FBI from a service station with a direct view of the Pentagon. Similarly two other private surveillance cameras in nearby buildings were seized within minutes of the event. The Pentagon itself has many surveillance cameras, of course, that likely captured the event. However, with the exception of a few frames from a camera in a parking lot that shows an indistinct flying object striking the Pentagon, the government has refused all Freedom of Information Act requests for the release of this data. The evidence in the videos would clear up the question of what actually struck the Pentagon.

Editor's note: One of the pictures that I published in one of the editions, shows that white smoke flew outward from the Pentagon indicating an explosive within the Pentagon rather than any object hitting it.

A meeting of air traffic controllers was held shortly after 9/11 to discuss what they had experienced. Six air traffic controllers provided accounts of their communications with hijacked planes on September 11, 2001, on a tape recording that was later destroyed by Federal Aviation Administration managers, according to a government investigative report.

The Defense Department released a video tape of "Osama" on December 13, 2001, excerpts from which were shown on prime time television several times. Many people interpreted the translated dialog as a "confession" that bin Laden had been behind the attacks on 911.

CNN reported: "(CNN) -- Osama bin Laden recounts with delight the September 11 terrorist attacks against the United States as he talks with associates on a videotape released Thursday by the Bush administration." However, it was quickly established that the man playing the part of Osama on the tape was not the real Osama and nothing was ever seen or heard of the tape thereafter. Somehow, CNN failed to report that the tape was a fake. As many widely circulated pictures of Osama bin Laden show, he has a long thin face and a long thin nose. The fake Osama was round faced and had a broad nose.

Recently, it was revealed that the "Most Wanted" poster of Osama bin Laden, posted at the FBI website, did not list the events of 9/11 as a crime for which he was wanted. When queried, the FBI said it had "no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11."

The National Transportation and Safety Board investigates plane crashes. That is its reason for being. Except on 9/11. There is no indication that they investigated the crash at the Pentagon.

Although the media reports that American Airlines Flight 77 was hijacked and flown into the Pentagon, there is no credible evidence of the crash of such a huge plane. CNN's Jamie McIntyre reported live from the Pentagon. He said "there's no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon; no large sections of wing, tail, or fuselage visible."

Samuel Danner (electrical engineer for AmTrak), was involved in the clean-up at the Pentagon crash site and inspected the debris at the site. He said, "It was not a Boeing 757 that hit the Pentagon." He relates how the authorities immediately organized a crew to clean up the debris on the Pentagon lawn.

The crime scene was cleaned up before anyone could investigate it. Want to know what hit the Pentagon? Well, the first thing that would be done is to examine the evidence at the scene. That can't happen now, can it?

Although President Bush opposed having a commission to investigate 911 initially, he conceded and an "independent" commission was appointed. Bush nominated Henry Kissenger to lead it, but howls of protest led to Mr. Kissenger declining. The commission held hearings and issued its report. One of the strange aspects among many of the final report is that it omitted any mention of the strange collapse of Tower 7 of the World Trade Center the afternoon of 9/11. Although not struck by a plane and across the street from the two main towers, Tower 7 collapsed into its foot print several hours after the main towers collapsed.

Americans across the country are doubtful of what has been reported to have happened on September 11, 2001. A second poll released last month by Zogby International found that 42 percent of all Americans believe the 9/11 Commission "concealed or refused to investigate critical evidence" in the attacks.

Editor's note: Since August 23, 2006 when this article was posted on the listserv, a poll indicates that 81 per cent of the American people know that 9/11 was an inside job.

The internet is allowing the truth to surface in spite of the concentrated media effort to suppress it. Videos are now free and available on the internet. One of the most popular is Loose Change, a documentary that explains what really happened on 9/11. It is being viewed around the country as well as around the globe. See it at
