9/11: Intercepted

Ratings: 7.91/10 from 66 users.


9/11: InterceptedWhat happened on the morning of September 11, 2001? Why were US defenses ineffective? Pilots For 9/11 Truth analyze NORAD response, Audio recordings as well as Radar data provided by government agencies.

War Games, Simulated radar tracks, aircraft exceeding their max operating limits by more than 130-150 knots, inaccurate aircraft position reports, false aircraft target reports, aircraft converging - flying virtually in formation with - and then diverging from reported 9/11 aircraft, fighters launched in the wrong direction, aircraft seemingly still airborne after the alleged attack, poor communications, phones not working...

Pilots for 9/11 Truth is an organization of aviation professionals and pilots throughout the globe who have gathered together for one purpose. They're are committed to seeking the truth surrounding the events of the 11th of September 2001.

Their main focus concentrates on the four flights, maneuvers performed and the reported pilots. They do not offer theory or point blame at this point in time. However, they are focused on determining the truth of that fateful day based on solid data and facts - since 9/11/2001 is the catalyst for many of the events shaping our world today - and the United States Government doesn't seem to be very forthcoming with answers or facts.

    Damn! I watched another 911 doc, why can't I stop? Makes me feel like a crazy kid, ripping open endless packets in search of a rare pokemon card and only ever getting swapsies! I swear, this is the last one! ;)

    well are still buying the official story or what .
    if so i suspect you will not get clarity on this issue until they start

    Lets face it folks, we have a GOV creating events to go to war to keep the economy going and to eventually own the Mid East, always the plan. Next will be turning our backs on Israel once Iran and Pakistan attack her. Israel no longer has a place in the new world order, they dont want Zionism in the plan. Once Iran and Pakistan attack, the rest of the middle east will back them or not, probably not, Saudia Arabia does have a place in the new order. Finally, if this fails, it will be a fake UFO invasion with our own secret machines attacking, convincing all to unite into the one world order gladly. We will be pushed into 110 underground FEMA camps for protection, never to see the light of day again. Reduce the pop to 500 million, and the 13 families win.

  9. dewflirt

    I don't think anyone would believe the truth now. It's too late, conspiracies snowball. Look at Roswell, jfk, lady Di, global warming. Doesn't matter what anyone says, the average conspiracist is still going to think it's just more lies. :)

  10. oQ

    It is interesting to have a look at the website...Pilots For Truth.
    The member list is composed of lunatic conspiracists?
    ya, right!
    People want to know. There are groups of architects and engineers who have formed and now groups of pilots. When will we have groups of politicians that do the same?

  11. batvette

    This is probably the most pointless and substance lacking 9/11 twoofer doc yet. 18:00 in and all they've done is question the routing and then conclude it shared similarities to Operation Northwoods? Something that never happened!
    If you were to dig through all the government's files for all the contingency plans you'd find all kinds of crazy stuff.
    What we're hearing unfold is some good employees trying to think on their feet but the bureaucracy is not set up for this kind of event.
    Speculation and innuendo are not evidence.

  12. Peter Wilson

    Yes, pilots, architects, and engineers; what could such people know about idiosyncracies concerning air traffic communications, flight plans, aircraft stability factors, building integrity and collapses etc.?!! (irony alert for those who missed it) What is odd to me is the lack of discussion on this point: As a flight attendant, I received annual training which included security updates. For the couple years leading up to 9/11 we were informed that the #1 most likely threat of terrorism was that Osama Bin Laden (yes he was specifically named) would organize the hijacking of commercial aircraft which would be guided like missiles into vital U.S. structures. My colleagues and I wondered between us "why do they not change the cockpit doors, because anyone can simply kick these ones open?" For the cost of one first class ticket per plane, each plane could have had a much more secure door installed. Skip the "hindsight is 100%" nonsense; that was the first insight that came to mind upon being informed that our government deemed such a scenario as the most likely threat---well before 9/11 actually happened.

  13. Peter Wilson

    As I describe in my post, this "kind of event" was exactly what government security agencies were anticipating. As for evidence, what do you call the almost non-stop presentation of audio and visual recordings of pilot/air traffic controllers/security agencies and radar displays?! Wait a minute, is your comment an example of what's referred to as trolling? Ah you got me.

  14. Jack1952

    I wish people would understand the principle known as the rules of evidence. "Why did they", "How is it possible", "Never before has" are questions. It is not evidence. Until there is direct evidence pinpointing a chain of command and credible witnesses offering proof of malfeasance, they are only asking question. Confusion and coincidence are also not evidence. If that were true, then anyone could be found guilty of something.

  15. Jeremy Hughes

    I saw an interesting video, it claimed that the CIA realized shortly after their inception that they needed to create this counter-culture of conspiracy theories, supposedly by leaking faked documents into the right hands, they could cause so much confusion in the "conspiracy" genre, that people would just give up and assume that everything is bullshit. I kinda think it's working, if it's true, that is.

  16. Peter Wilson

    Are you talking to me? Here is what I wrote concerning evidence: "As for evidence, what do you call the almost non-stop presentation of audio and visual recordings of pilot/air traffic controllers/security agencies and radar displays?! " The rest of my post I referred to as a "point" of "discussion". Are you doing one of those straw man things? You sound like you are suggesting we use sound reason and a more scientific approach. There are two theories under discussion: 1. Bin Laden orchestrated a suicide mission and effectively defeated ALL our defense mechanisms even though the action was highly anticipated by our highest officials. 2. High level officials helped to orchestrate the events of 9/11. Both sound highly improbable, senseless and horrible. Returning to reason and a more scientific approach, skepticism calls for an open mind. How are you doing with that aspect? As with JFK, the official story got locked in startlingly fast for minds that prefer deeper inquiry into unlikely scenarios with a large list of unanswered questions.

  17. batvette

    " even though the action was highly anticipated by our highest officials. "

    That's your opinion. As well as asserting it should have been the only think they should be expecting.
    However "high level officials" were not who we see talking on the phones and reacting to these events here. It's obvious in their voices, they had no idea what to do or what was happening.
    Don't listen to common sense. Just keep telling yourself you're so much smarter than the 94% of us "sheeple" who are either part of the conspiracy or lack your courage to save the world....
    And spend the rest of your life being ridiculed, marginalized, and laughed at by everyone you patronize with the assumption ignorance is enlightenment. Remember you heard it here: You will die decades from now with no new "investigation", no head of Bush on a platter, a bitter, lonely person on the fringe.
    Grasping fringe is not science. Questioning hypothesis held by consensus is not science. "asking questions" and refusing answers is not science.

  18. batvette

    You DO realize those "radar displays" are recreations and the positions they place the aircraft in are their own and based on their interpretations?

  19. leanmv

    I agreed with you Peter, don't listen to that ***** (batvette), it's just another sheep still connected to the matrix. Respect.

  20. Jack1952

    Actually, I meant to make a general comment and did not intend it to be directed specifically towards you. For that, I apologize.

    Why is it that all those CTers seem to use the same jargon. Strawman, sheeple, matrix, status-quo, brain washed, wake up people, manipulated....and on and on? It is like they have share a handbook of phrases that they can use to identify one another. One thing is positive, they trust no one except those who accuse the government, the media, the military, or corporations. Then the trust is complete and unquestioning.

    I have never claimed that these entities are one hundred percent correct in all they do but, they cannot be guilty of one hundred percent of everything wrong in this world. It is too simplistic an answer. When you accuse someone of malfeasance, you have to have direct evidence, not supposition and coincidence. That is how our judicial system attempts to operate in our democratic societies. There is nothing in this film that would indict anyone in the American government or military of a criminal act concerning the attacks of that day. It is comprised of generalized accusations with no specifics involved. Just who could you bring to trial with the material this film presents? Not anyone. That is the reality that all the CT types have to realize.

  21. Jack1952

    And there are those who readily accept every wild accusation made. 9/11...the government, chemtrails...once again, the government, JFK... the government, Oklahoma City...the government, Virginia Tech...the government, the recent Batman shootings...the government, no cure for cancer...the government, the spread of Aids...the government...I could go on and on. It is incredible just how predictable these people are. And they call us "sheeple". You have your beliefs handed to you on a plate and don't even realize that the only real evidence you have is your own predisposition to believe any story that fits certain criteria. The problem is with these wild accusations is that when something untoward finally does happen, no one will listen. The boy who cried wolf too many times.

    I would like to fly a 747 into the heads of the people that made this doc!

  23. Jack1952

    Operation Northwoods is like the proposal recommending killing Castro with an exploding cigar. As a matter of fact, the person who proposed Operation Northwood was relieved of his post shortly after. I wonder why?

  24. Jack1952

    You gotta stop reading those comic books. They warping your brain.

  25. Senad Gani?

    When I had my first chance to form my own opinion first thing that came to me is maybe its not all other sides fault. Critical thinking is what I have discovered. I come from Bosnia, suffered war for 4 years, planes, bomb shelling, some other people suffered sniper fire, mortars etc and it was easy to be bias. In my pursuit for truth I stumbled upon a lot of mess. Lie upon lie, desinformations for the masses everything was staged to make me hate, not a lot of room for asking questions. Now I am 25 and for 7 years of searching I am so sure that there is a plan for all things that happened and for what you should know is whenever you question government it is the right thing to do, hate is not knowing, questioning is the path to truth. Do it as often you can, we are all the same, in the same bullshit.

  26. brianrose87

    So lets say that 9/11 wasn't a government conspiracy. Lets say that the official story is broadly true. The end result was one of the greatest misinvestments of a nations resources in history.

    Lets say that 9/11 was a government conspiracy. Lets say that the government pre-planned the attacks, and therefore pre-planned the ensuing military reaction. The end result is one of the greatest misinvestments of a nations resources in history.

    Heres the thing. If 9/11 was an elaborately planned false flag event (that killed over 3,000 of its own innocent civilians), then it should also have an equally elaborately planned reaction. If the entire event was staged why would they plant SAUDI ARABIAN IDs for the terrorists if your largest Muslim ally (to this day) is Saudi Arabia.

    I've got a better idea. If you want to kill 3,000 of your own citizens to invade Iraq, then plant IRAQI IDs in the wreckage.

  27. batvette

    (that's sheep talk from the matrix)
    I love it when the "Bush and Cheney did it to enrich themselves waging illegal wars" faction brings up Operation Northwoods. It shows how confused their whole mind is. Though it sounds nefarious, whatever light they wish to look at it with, it would have been solely for the purpose of the national security of the country. Not for a couple guys to get rich off.
    It's precedent of nothing.


    You seriously need to do further research before posting such obliviously ignorant rhetoric. They invaded Afghanistan to go after Al Queida. Iraq was invaded because of 'weapons of mass destruction', then to 'oust Saddam Hussein', then to 'bring Democracy to the Middle East', then....and so on, and so on. "9/11: Explosive Evidence- Experts Speak Out" is an excellent film on why a new investigation should occur. Do yourself a favor and look at the scientific approach and not rely on an emotional reaction for the sake of blind faith.

  29. Ramus73

    If it was a conspiracy America needs to take a hard look at itself but then if it wasn't a conspiracy and the defense was just a complete mickey mouse operation America needs to take a hard look at itself.

  30. Robert Elliot

    You forget that their boogeyman Osama, plotting 9/11 from his cave, is the lynchpin of the government's fairy tale, hence the fake Saudi Arabian terrorist IDs (several of whom have since been located alive and well, by the way).

  31. brianrose87

    My brevity wasn't for lack of knowledge. My assumption was that everyone knows that 3 months after 9/11 we invaded Afghanistan because Bin Laden and his training camps were located there. We then, in March 2003, invaded Iraq on dubious claims.

    My point was that the U.S. govt wouldn't murder 3,000 of its own citizens to invade Afghanistan. Afghanistan had some quirks. The year before we invaded (and 9/11 happened) the Taliban destroyed the opium crop (Afghanistan was.... and thanks to us, is again, the largest producer of heroine in the world); on top of that, the building of a natural gas pipeline that the U.S. was very much hoping for was cancelled in 1998, again by the Taliban. Considering the magnitude of the attack and comparing it to the possible rewards (the pipeline TO THIS DAY has not been built, although in 2002 the U.S. tried to get talks started again), its obvious Afghanistan wasn't the ultimate goal.

    USING LOGIC I therefore assume that Afghanistan wasn't the ultimate goal, and that Iraq was. Why do I assume that? Because Iraq has the 3rd largest oil reserves in the world and sits literally in the exact middle of the Middle East. Iraq has tremendous potential for increased oil production due to its vast reserves and underproduction in the past, and it also borders a number of strategic countries. Iraq was, and is, basically a gold mine in terms of geopolitical strategy.

    Which brings me back to my point. If Afghanistan was merely a diversion, and Iraq was the ultimate prize, then why not craft some bullsh*^ Iraqi IDs, instead of Saudi IDs. If they (the govt) can plan, and get away with, 9/11 then why can't they plant a connection to Iraq? IT DOESN'T ADD UP.

    The audacity and loss of life caused by 9/11 would require an equally large motive. That motive could not be Afghanistan because there's simply nothing worth the sacrifice in Afghanistan. When solving a crime detectives search for a motive of equal value to the crime committed; Afghanistan doesn't provide that.

    THEREFORE, if 9/11 is a govt conspiracy it must have ultimately been about Iraq due to Iraq's oil reserves (our civilization runs on oil... if you don't believe me then remember your keyboard, mouse, and monitor are made of oil. 100% of air transport runs on oil, 99% of sea transport, and 95% of land transport run on oil. The paint on your wall is oil, as is your toothpaste, toothbrush, windshield, pharmaceuticals, PETROchemicals [pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, fungicides], nylon, polyester, etc.). Our civilization is literally built on oil, so it would make sense that those in power would hope to secure the 3rd largest reserve in the world, which is conveniently placed in the most oil rich region of the world. Try flying an F-22 without oil... or trying your car, a 787, or Cruise Ship without oil.

    The problem is that if Iraq had been the ultimate goal, then 9/11 was a terrible, terrible way of getting to that goal. Saddam Hussein had zero affiliation with Al Qaeda (Saddam was a Sunni; Al Qaeda is Shiite... Most conflict in the Middle East stems from differences in these two sects of Islam). If you want a good excuse to invade Iraq, then don't blame 9/11 on a bunch of Saudi nationals who were Shiites.

  32. Christian Klinckwort Guerrero

    well done, lets hang G.W. Bush from a Redwood

  33. batvette

    I agree with what you say and I'll help you be even more right by pointing out something you're kind of wrong about, or at least aren't noting... since the invasion of Iraq, the bulk of the oil contracts have been awarded to French, Russian and Chinese oil companies! If it had anything to do with seizing Iraq's oil for ourselves, well we didn't follow up and get the payday.
    (we invaded Iraq for a number of reasons revolving around the continuing threat Saddam posed to our allies, his neighbors- and the three countries above could not be counted on to help us stop him, but were poised to help rearm him when sanctions ended)
    Good post though.

  34. brianrose87

    Thank you for the elaboration betvette. I neglected to mention reasons for why we ACTUALLY invaded Iraq because I was focusing on why the bulls*@^ reasons don't add up.

    Anyone who wants legitimate reasons for why the U.S. invaded Iraq need look no further than the Project for a New American Century and a paper written in September 2000. That think tank was headed by William Kristol, Ronald Kagan, Donald Rumsefeld and Paul Wolfowitz; a whose who of the Bush Administration.

    9 days after 9/11/01 PNAC sent a letter stating "even if evidence does not link Iraq directly to the attack, any strategy aiming at the eradication of terrorism and its sponsors must include a determined effort to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq." So a think-tank, created in the 1990s by Bush's future administration, told Bush 8 days after 9/11 that Iraq should be invaded REGARDLESS OF THE EVIDENCE. This is where the conspiracy theorists and I get along... How does and did the media ignore this?

  35. sean c

    The whole official explanation of 9/11 is absurd. Voltaire wrote "if you can make people believe in absurdities you can make them commit atrocities". Numbers don't lie. They say one thing the numbers say another. it's a sad fact that all those scientists in the world that have gone along with the official explanation should die of shame.

  36. sean c

    Isn't time you took your brain in for a service

  37. sean c

    When the Towers disintergrated, leaving no trace of the aircraft that alledgedly caused them to turn to dust, by some miracle a passport survived belonging to one of the hijackers. That was lucky. Oh...and they found a Timemex watch which was still ticking.

  38. sean c

    To paraphrase Aeschylus the Greek tragic dramatist (525 BC - 456 BC). "The first casualty of war is truth"

    He also wrote

    "I never trust people's assertions, I always judge of them by their actions"

    Even though we all know that the weapons of mass destruction never existed and was a blatant lie on the part of Bush and Blair Americans and Brits, in their millions still believe it was the right thing to do and ignore all the anomalies that they based their actions on.

    God bless America and nobody else. Maybe Britain.

  39. Peter Wilson

    That is a good question

  40. Peter Wilson

    Thank goodness. Aviation personnel are a lot more qualified than I am to interpret radar data! The greatest innovations in history come about from "fringe" thinking---from Euclid to Newton and Copernicus. Edison, Einstein...

  41. Jack1952

    I find one aspect of the lack of WMDs in Iraq to be a contradiction with the claims of CT supporters. The American government is accused of going to great lengths on 9/11 to cover up its part and yet doesn't even bother to plant the WMDs to bolster their claims. They don't want to be known as duplicitous on one incident but could care less if people suspect them of malfeasance in another. I don't think it would have been that difficult to plant some poison gas in Iraq to prove to the world just how dangerous Saddam was. Instead, they allow themselves to look like a bunch of liars and let everyone who hates them call them a bunch of murderers and baby killers. They just shrug their shoulders and say "oops". On 9/11 however, they go to great lengths to show how guilty Bin Laden was and continue this ruse to this day. Inconsistent, to say the least.

  42. Dean Edgington

    true Duane and true Andrei

  43. Dean Edgington

    ok, maybe this video isnt proof but the proof is there, set your theshold as high as you like, the proof is there. may i suggest you google it?

  44. Jack1952

    They didn't need that passport to identify the hijackers. Their identity was known from the passenger's manifest that is required by law on all commercial flights. If anything, the finding of the passport leaves them open to ridicule...ridicule like your comment. Things happen that seem to have no logical explanation. It isn't evidence of wrong doing when something of this nature happens. It is evidence when it can be proven that it was planted. It is not evidence to say "Come on. You actually believe that a passport could survive?". True evidence proves just how that passport came to be found after the incident. Until then it is an anomaly. An anomaly may be the impetus for an investigation but is not the end result of that investigation. This is a part of critical thinking that many find hard to understand.

  45. Jack1952

    The American government had issues with Iraq and specifically Saddam, since the Gulf War. The desire to see Saddam ousted does not link them with the events of 9/11. There are many who wanted him gone that would never consider an action of this sort. From my own standpoint, I wanted Saddam gone but was totally against the invasion and still am. You have to show the actual planning and implementation of the government on 9/11 with hard physical evidence. Dubious cause and effect scenarios is not evidence.

  46. Jack1952

    This guy had a memo and was so appalled by what it said that he never kept it or exposed its contents to the world. Clarke also seemed appalled by the contents and yet he never procured a copy to show how duplicitous the American government is. That memo is the type of hard evidence that we need and yet it never becomes available. Clarke's story may be one that makes one go "hmmm" but in reality we have no idea what his motivation was in telling his little anecdote. What we need is that memo...that memo is the thing. Without it, his story cannot be corroborated.

  47. Jack1952

    All that trouble to get Iraqi oil and yet Canada is and has been the largest exporter of oil to the United States. They don't need or use the oil that Iraq has been pumping out of the ground. If you go through all the trouble to get the oil, at least use it. Its like killing my neighbour so I can have his wife and then rejecting her for someone else. It makes no sense.

  48. Jack1952

    Osama was not living is a cave until after the invasion. He lived, quite comfortably, in a compound where Muslim fundamentalist types could get military training. That is fact.

    Those terrorist that some claim to be alive is a myth. There were those found who had the same name as the terrorists but were not the same person. I know two individuals named Ronald Macdonald. It doesn't mean that they are the hamburger clowns. Show me one that is alive and I might believe it. Don't just say it...prove it.

  49. Jack1952

    This film even shows that there was a lot of confusion that day. A hijacking is not an everyday occurrence in the United States. Four hijackings in one morning is off the charts. Confusion would have to be expected.

    Even if fighter jets had intercepted the first plane, they would not have shot it down. They would have accompanied it till it landed and may have realized too late what its intentions were. They would have been reluctant to shoot down a plane over a metropolitan area.

  50. David Ewer

    This film shows there were too many strange coincidences on the 11th of September 2001 for something dodgy not to be transpiring. Well worth watching although quite difficult to follow at times. Thanks

    I have always thought the Iraqi war was not so much to get their oil but to replace the position that we will lose when the Saudi's overthrow the the royal family and run us out of their country. The only thing controlling the Saudi people is the might of the family's private army. It's just a matter of time.

  57. Jack1952

    An interesting thought. I shudder to think what would happen to the people of Saudi Arabia if there is a revolution. The royal family is bad enough but Arabia is so taken with fundamentalist Islam and their special place in Allah's world that I fear an even worse form of totalitarianism. Many Muslims have accused the royal family of being to westernized. This, in a country where strict adherence to the Koran is insisted upon.

    I was against the invasion of Iraq and I would like to see the United States start to cut back on its military presence around the world. Everyone is turning against them because of it and it is to the detriment of not only the United States but to global peace. Having said this, I still do not believe the American government was responsible for the hijackings. There are a lot of people around the world who hate the United States...maybe even enough to attack them. After reading some of the angry comments against the United States online, including some which calls for armed insurrection, I do not doubt that some on would actually carry it out.

  58. WTC7

    I sincerely admire your attitude after all that you have been through. It takes an exceptional human being to do that. Apart from that, I absolutely agree with your stance towards the institution of government - any government.

  59. WTC7

    It does make sense if you see it from a different perspective. It's not about getting oil, it's about controlling its price and unhindered (or hindered when it suites) flow of it from the producing countries to users. Whoever controls it can decide who gets oil and who doesn't.

  60. xxconspiracyxx

    It's all about how Israel control the american politics and that Israel feel threaten by the middle east, everyone should know that of power of the Israel lobby, look it up, Jewish control just about everything in america and have fingers in just about every pie, look at the most powerful families in the world i.e rothschilds,

    This whole 9/11 stuff is just another excuse for the Israel/Americans to get there hands and military bases all over the world infecting middle eastern cultures with more global company shite, and the only reason America is pissed with north korea is that they for once can't get into a country and infect it with the poison, war crimes that fills the world today.

  61. batvette

    infecting middle eastern cultures with more global company shite"

    Many winners of Nobel prizes in chemistry, physics, biology, etc. note that after receiving a Nobel prize people ask them questions on a large range of subjects. For instance, a chemist will be asked questions about what should be done about Darfur, or if China's economic growth can really be sustained. A genuinely knowledgeable chemist simply says "I may have an unscientific opinion, but that's not my expertise". Many Nobel prize winners express angst at the notion that knowlgeability can be universalized.

    Just because a pilot is knowledgeable about flight dynamics, and certain policies that pertain SPECIFICALLY to pilots doesn't make them an expert on a broader basis. Just as a Nobel prize winning chemist cannot make an informed statement on String Theory.

    I've seen a large number of docs on 9/11, and I admittedly was thoroughly convinced of the false flag perspective for some time. I now no longer hold those beliefs because it doesn't add up. Engineers have constructed computer simulations that conclude the towers (especially Tower 7) could never have failed under the assumed conditions. Other engineers have produced computer simulations that conclude, based on highly complex algorithms, that they certainly did collapse naturally.

    I've known some incredibly intelligent, rational people who hold completely absurd beliefs. I know a chiropractor ( an old college friend) who finds Ancient Aliens fascinating. This is a man who graduated with a 3.87 GPA, and has more legitimate knowledge about the human body than anyone I can imagine... yet he finds Ancient Aliens fascinating.

    The point is that peoples competence and intelligence are founded in the specialized subjects that they are experts in. If Einstein believed in Scientology it wouldn't make Scientology true; it would merely prove that Einsteins specialty was an entirely different subject.

    I should also add that I AM CLEARLY NOT AN EXPERT ON THIS SUBJECT. I may have an informed opinion, but I am not qualified to give an absolute verdict. I'm merely discussing my personal perspective on a subject that I have no PhD in.

    Installing different doors in every airplane in existence would only have been one of literally thousands of minor to major changes that would be needed to fully prevent a hypothetical attack that had never happened. In general, corporations will avoid spending ANY money on anything that doesn't increase profits. If the potential is there for increased regulations that would require significant expense, then most corporations find lobbying against said regulations to be more profitable than actually complying.

    The cost of fully protecting the industry from a high risk, low probability event like 9/11 would have been enormous. Corporations would rather ignore and deter any attempt at making them properly protect themselves.

    If a corporations can spend $1 milion lobbying and save $100 million as a result, then lobbying just saved them $99 million... this is why there are over 25 lobbyists per congressman on Capital Hill... Think about that 25 lobbyists for every one congressman. That says a lot.

    We all can at least agree that whether this was an extremely elaborately planned govt cover up or not that the end result was that nothing was gained and trillions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of lives were lost (I'm including the loss of life of Afghan and Iraqi nationals here... because I'm pretty sure that they're human beings with family, friends, and children as well).

  66. spinflux

    brianrose speaks the truth. PNAC was our foreign policy for eight years and Dubya was the perfect puppet for the think tank to manipulate. His father believed the goals were too extreme eight years prior, and so he did not sign it. But Jeb Bush did, as well as Dick Cheney.

    Google PNAC and read its mission statement and note the people who signed it. It's not like a secret any longer. Half of them ended up in Dubya's administration.

    They even speak of "a new Pearl Harbor" to kick off their plan for America's global dominance through perpetual war, with plans to invade Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and finally "Egypt as the prize". 9-11 was that new Pearl Harbor. How very...convenient for them.

  67. markymark715

    What do you mean nothing was gained? Bush had all kinds of things passed into law that never would have, companies like the Carlyle Group who Bush's father works for made billions. The U.S. controls the oil and they installed a puppet government in Iraq.

  68. markymark715

    That PNAC is a very scary group indeed, their mission statement is for the U.S. to control the planet.

    In regards to professional's of all stripes questioning 9/11, I am one of them. I cannot erase 3 decades of knowledge in building construction, design, and fire code. To call all all of us conspiracy theorists is preposterous. I can no more expunge the knowledge from my brain than anyone can shut their own brains off. The three buildings in question, cannot, did not, and will never again, fall in such a way, without the aid of explosives. The basics of physics and building construction cannot be changed for one day, no matter who is saying they did. I have said this 1000 times, and will never change my mind. Dealing with non professional's, who have no knowledge of such topics was old a long time ago, but there are always a few people, who understand the language engineers speak, and they know, deep down, those buildings were blown up. Any other view is not possible for anyone who is involved with any facet of engineering. Buildings cannot fall like that, without using cutter charges or explosives. There is no debate in that. Only fact. Ignorance of that uncomfortable fact is done at your own risk. Have a nice day, everyone. I can leave it at that.

    Could have been put together better. arrows to show the aircraft they're talking about ext.

    It is really scary to know the gov't could be apart of such a mass massacre. It is also shocking that Bin Laden was a "Suspect," yet they went and killed him. lol I know all of this was to turn america against Muslims and to give the US gov't a nice excuse of why they're constantly in the Middle East. I do not feel safe living in a world like this. The Gov't is evil.

  73. dan summers

    Nothing was gained? The twin towers were insured for billions and the USA declared war on terror and us as citizens gave up more of our freedom and rights after this terrible act. So yeah id say there was alot to gain from this.

  74. Ajene Farrar

    As an air traffic controller, there were few things I could quibble with in this video, but there were a couple:

    The summary claims that this video is not suggesting any theories, but the tone of the narrator makes it clear that every unfortunate circumstance or communication error made on 9/11 must have been planned. This isn't a reasonable response made by objective parties.

    The controller who gave an inaccurate positioning of AAL11 northeast of DC could very well have been given information about a primary target and in the chaos of the day, assumed this target was one of the hijacked aircraft. It's happened all the time at work where we are looking for a lost private aircraft, and we see several primary targets, and guess wrong about who is who, based on where we expect our lost aircraft to be. Usually, these mistakes are kept in our heads, and we withhold presenting our assumptions to other controllers until we know for sure...but in a climate where you just saw an aircraft hit the WTC, I'm sure many people would be much more likely to offer their unsubstantiated opinions to other facilities in order to prevent another crash.

  75. sean c

    "there are none as blind as those that refuse to see"

  76. slpsa

    My opinion, as a certified engineer, is not unsubstantiated. The laws of physics and many other laws come into play. I do not play word games or talk out my a**hole to hear myself talk. I know the business of constructing buildings, using certified building code, fire protection and engineering concepts. 3 decades plus of it. I know jack about aircraft and traffic control, but sure do know implosions when I see them. Enough said.

  77. slpsa

    Those are two good links. Laymen may have a tough time grasping the engineering and physics part, but it is well laid out for most people to grasp. Building 7, IS the smoking gun, always has been, always will be. Watching that building fall says it all. Compare it to other demos online, there are even videos that line a known demolition up with building 7, and they fall at exactly the same rate of descent. Anyone who knows a thing about engineering knows what they saw in the Building 7 video. Anyone else, possibly may be fooled by it, professionals? Definitely not. The first time I saw it fall, which was at about 5 o clock on Sept 11th, 2001, told me all I needed to know. I knew all was not what they said it was, and 11 years later, I feel the same way. That building was demoed. Not a chance it was not. People can debate it all they like, the knowledge some people have cannot be erased. They fail at that and always will. What can we do about it? Who did it? I have no idea, but at least I know what really happened that day, who and why, is not my expertise. Only those buildings falling fall into my realm of understanding. The rest I leave to others to debate and figure out.

  78. WTC7

    And no one needs a PhD to see that there's not even a trace of a fre*king plane in the video from the surveillance camera in your first link :). It "vaporized" damn fast, didn't it?

    But, if we take the official report as truth, some parts of the plane did survive, though not many (nothing appears on the surveillance video, but ok...). Reportedly, most of the bodies were beyond recognition but the military authorities succeeded to identify the passengers using the most advanced identification techniques, including the DNA (presumably the DNA samples were collected from the families).

    How were the hijackers identified? They boarded the plane with false names...

  79. Pete Leclair

    Would so love to see this nitemare exposed for what it is.Obviously fighters who hear about first plane crash in wtc,are anxious to get to the area especially when 4 are confirmed hijackers.In all probability those who were in contact with the military would have given coordinates before the transponder was turned of and it does not take a moron to realise the fighters would have definately crossed paths with their superior power/.I am an Engineer and those two towers should have toppled over on their side destroying a minimum of four blocks.These are not coincidence,What can we do about it,Kinda wish something but fact is if the truth were really exposed the entire planet would become one giant that will place America as the most evil of all time.Also the two wars would have been based on this as well as womd The world will keep going on and maybe if their is another disaster such as the one on this video,I would suspect that the people would be less forgiving and base another attack because of the wars America went to.What a sad way for people regardless of religion or belief to kill just to start a war and clearly the leaders have much to hide but the slightest leak would mean certain death bye their own government and why?Cause their should never be a live witness.Truly the truth has been told here and our own people in high places are willing to murder their own and for what.4 more years.Very sick people who started this very sick yet their gruesome fate is after their life is complete and buried.

  80. kdessa

    If drones, not American Airlines passenger planes, crashed into the World Trade Centre towers and/or the Pentagon, what happened to the American Airlines planes that did take off and the passengers on them? The passengers didn't live to come home, and if they weren't on the planes that caused the explosions, what happened to them?

  81. CapnCanard

    slpsa, thanks and good post... I am not an engineer but the whole collapse of WTC7 has stunk to high heaven, and it is rarely if ever mentioned and only seen on YouTUbe. The collapse of WTC 1 and 2 were always too freakishly fast for my tastes, but I am not a construction/building/architectual engineer.

  82. CapnCanard

    Jack1952, sorry to say this but I believe that we can look forward to more military intervention in Middle East. Expect some fireworks in Iran soon...Oct or possibly Nov, but I hope to hell not, but my gut tells me this is what the Zionists are planning. After all the USSR isn't there to stop Israel and they only need to encourage crazy American Fundamentalist Christians to encourage the USA to help poor little Israel in their Holy War. If it happens, I predict that it will not end well for either the USA or Israel. I sure as hell hope I am wrong.

  83. Peter Wilson

    Yes, the beauty of establishing "terrorism" as "our war" is that no matter how many laws Congress may pass, no matter how totalitarian the measures, no matter how many countries are occupied and brought under U.S. control, "terrorist" incidences can still occur. Any and all measures can be "justified" with no end in sight! However; it is not MY opinion---it was the statement within FAA mandated training programs to pilots and flight attendants that the most likely terrorist action at that time (2000 and 2001) will involve commandeering commercial aircraft into vital American targets. Of "thousands of minor to major changes" to be considered, it was evident to us beverage servers of the skies that, should terrorists manage to board commercial aircraft, the flimsy cockpit doors would be their ticket to suicide fame. I won't challenge you to come up with thousands of changes, but how about 10 or 5 or 3 that would have been as potent and cost-effective in deterring such an act should terrorists have boarded a commercial flight. I believe Eisenhower provided the FAA with the mandate to regulate aviation industry as an independent body in order to make airline safety less vulnerable to congressional lobbying monkey business. Oddly, although suicide missions were deemed the most likely threat, none of our procedures for hijacking response were altered which was certainly handy for the 9/11 culprits

  84. Ajene Farrar

    uhhh...am I missing something? Why is this addressed to me?

  85. Ajene Farrar

    Ah, it appears you posted the video? Not sure. But your response has not responded to anything in my post. When a video claims objectivity and purports to merely examine the facts, and then jumps to assumptions of scripted, malevolent intent for every miscommunication or misfortune, it loses its gold star for objectivity (and, for many, it loses credibility). Whether you have other reasons for your cynicism or not, the facts laid out in this video do not back up these assumptions. It was an interesting watch and I quite enjoyed it, but it seems to want to be an expose when it has no smoking gun.

  86. batvette

    Oh, ad hominem, on the level of a ten year old even. I'm quite impressed.

  87. batvette

    You're kind of dodging the point, which is that we're at the mercy of the film's producers for accuracy over what the presentation is of this recreation- and you seemed to believe that the radar screens we were seeing in the film were actually taken from some kind of footage the government was recording.
    The producers have given a subjective rendering of these events based on either honest or "other" interpretations of data they collected. We don't know that the paths of these aircraft are what they are showing us they are, so the points they make in this doc may be pointless to begin with.
    This may be no less a fictional account than a Hollywood movie.
    I noticed these same producers have a cute little clip on youtube with them badgering an analyst from a gov't agency who couldn't discuss his report because it was for the FBI, not his own agency.
    It was about the Pentagon plane, some sort of doubts about the actual flight path or something. Getting past his harassment of this analyst, what was his point? That some of the data about the plane's trajectory was in error for any possible numbers of reasons? Okay fine. The equipment is not perfect nor are the people collecting the data.
    Is the point that they are claiming no plane hit the Pentagon? That's ridiculous. Just silly.
    As usual, someone thinks "asking questions" is a pursuit of its own goals, or poking holes in a consensus held hypothesis replaces it with another.

    I can't help but notice that from posting to posting your style of writing and grammar differ somewhat.

Dasterdly stuff.Mirth of a Nation.

  90. slpsa

    The basic problem with the official story of these collapses, is that in order to achieve free fall speeds, which all three did, all the material underneath must be removed. That is a physics problem, and no matter who says what, the laws cannot be changed. This is the sticking point for engineers and architects, and many other experts.

  91. slpsa

    I disagree on the point it will not end well. The arsenal and power of the USA dwarfs all others. They can take Iran apart from the sky, without ever having to set foot on its soil. They are not going to invade, they will take apart their nuke program and bomb everything back to the stone age. There is nothing Iran can do about it, just like Iraq could not. All the advances they claim to have made will matter very little, they do not have what it takes to defeat stealth technology nor can Iran match in the air or the ground. Russia and China will not fight the USA or its allies over this situation. They may yell and scream a bit, but go to a WW3 scenario over it? I cannot see that happening. I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

  92. slpsa

    As I said, this video is not my expertise. I did not put it up either. My knowledge lies in engineering, construction, fire code. I could not tell you if this has a smoking gun in it, I know nothing about air traffic control. I only know buildings and know when someone has blown them up.

  93. slpsa

    Bat, I will not even begin to debate this with you. I have played this game with the uninformed for 11 years. I was tired of it long ago. I have spent more than enough time analyzing the official report. It is flawed, much of it baseless tripe. I need no pat on the back nor your support. I am not trying to win anyone over. This is old stuff. I only say this, as I have said many times. Ignoring the obvious, believing buildings fall like those three did by jet fuel and office fires, is done at your own risk. I have not much else to say, you are not a certified engineer, and I will certainly not entertain you and your delusions of the truth. I spent enough time on this to fill a lifetime, talking to people who do not hold my qualifications is boring and useless. I will not convince you of anything, your notions are firmly entrenched. You obviously think the basic laws of physics can be changed for 1 day, and noone, especially me, will change your mind. We can agree to disagree and carry on. My knowledge will not change the world, nor change many peoples minds.

  94. slpsa

    "What "professionals" do you mean who aren't fooled? The vast consensus of civil engineers, structural failure analysts, etc, is that the official story is sound science. The numbers of dissenters is in the low single digits, if A & E 9/11 truth is an indication it's far below 1% even"

    And you know this how? You are not a member of any of the engineering groups, nor are you a card carrying certified engineer. It seems to me, you just made this up. I assume you have spoken to tens of thousands of us to come up with those numbers? Please, enough tripe. I talk to hundreds, if not thousands of my colleagues, yearly. If there is anyone who knows how most of my co employed feel it would be people like me. What you suggest here is utter nonsense. You had better keep in mind, many of the people you speak of would not publicly stand up and say it was a setup. In a room full of their peers. You can think what ya like bud.

  95. Peter Wilson

    I like the comments where, if you are skeptical of the official conspiracy theory, you are called a "twoofer" which I assume is a funny alteration of the intended term---truther---because, really, truther somehow does not come off as all that disparaging. If you are not a "truther" what are you---a "lie-er"?

  96. Teddy Mcd

    Okay let me ask a question.

    preamble - It is somewhere in the near future (two-three years) and a 9/11 investigation with the authority of law, the power to convict has been completed and the ruling is that it was an inside job. It was an inside job orchestrated by the government: non elected officials, congressmen, senators and the executive branch (including the president). Those found guilty (pick a number and make it high) of treason and murder are sentenced to death and duly executed.

    ? What then - what of the world - USA - democracy - religion (in a way) - the military - the common man and woman, and anything you want might want to add.

    I would appreciate hearing opinions from any and all so inclined.

    Thanks - Teddy Mcd

    I will post this question also on, '9/11 The Sensible Doubt'

  97. Peter Wilson

    If we assume the "inside job" allegation to be true (a large assumption at this time), then your scenario outcome you describe presupposes a realm of amazing and positive developments that must have already occured to arrive at your scenario in 2 to 3 years, namely; The American population has made huge strides in Critical Independent Thinking. They have superseded the pernicious secrecy of the U.S. agencies from the CIA, military branches to the Executive advisories. A huge number of Americans must have actively questioned "official" proclamations, the mainstream media, corporate/government mouthpieces, blind allegiances to authority---they have demanded access to the processes of justice and taken an active heroic role in defending the innocent and promoting peaceful interaction to bring about a better world---a world of lesser violation and greater peace among humans. You ask "what of the world..." in the sense "what is to become of..." but were the scenario to come about as you describe, an amazing transformation has already happened, namely; millions of Americans have answered the calling described by JFK that we "do our part to build a world of peace where the weak are safe and the strong are just", and they have responded uncompromisingly to the calling.

  98. emp12345

    didn't watch this docu (have watched enough) but if you did not do it already watch the interview with Dimitri Khalezov. He claims the Russians have known since the 80-ties that when the twin Towers were built they had nukes planted around 77m below the towers. It sounds rediculous but you need to listen to the whole video. If you watch what happens to the towers it makes sense. He claims that America was a victim of an assault and that they decided to blow up the towers to avoid an even worse outcome. This I do not believe myself. But I am pretty sure that the towers have been blown up by nukes planted around 80m below the towers. And if they allow me I can prove it with seismology.

    The comment about what will happen once it is proven that 911 is an inside job? I am afraid that human kind is just hopeless. You have a lot of hardworking people who have accomplished the most amazing things. But then there are the power hungry who are in control and they are always corrupt, always want more and destroy everything. This will continue unless humankind gets a mutation.

  99. brianrose87

    Haha yea cause a Geiger counter could never detect radiation after a nuclear blast... in Manhattan.

    emp12345 you are the type that make conspiracy theorists look bad. Most conspiracy theorists don't believe official stories because they are logical and want to do research before coming to a conclusion.

    Buy a Geiger counter on eBay for $20, go to ground zero, and take a reading. Any radiation?

  100. brianrose87

    Lets assume a powerful nuclear blast originated from below the towers (WTC 1, WTC 2, and WTC7). The collapse would begin at the bottom and propagate toward the top. The visual result is that the towers would have begun collapsing from the bottom floor instead of pancaking from the top. Is this what happened?

    By the way, its perfectly legal to take a Geiger Counter to the WTC site. Have you ever actually been to ground zero? Yes or no, cause I have. Not that it matters, though. A nuclear blast propagating from underground and up a building (3 buildings, really) would leave a cloud of radioactive dust that would contaminate areas downwind for miles. The half-life of emitted Plutonium is 24,400 years, so don't worry you have plenty of time.

    There's no need for a 3D seismograph; ALL YOU NEED IS A GEIGER COUNTER. I promise you this. If you genuinely believe what you are typing, then it is of critical importance that you confirm this evidence. Buy a Geiger counter, travel to Manhattan, and take some readings.

  101. xxconspiracyxx

    can anyone remember that mexican guy that was working as a cleaner or something that he and some witnesses heard explosions coming from the basement? i apologise about the lack of information but I just can't bloody remember his name,

    anyway as far as i'm aware he was working the morning of the day, when the planes hit, shorty after he heard explosions from the basement, also

    afew weeks prior the incident, when he was doing his cleaning or whatever, on the 50 something floor he said was not avalible to anyone, he heard nosies coming from there when people had left, he also noticed "out of place people coming in and out" i.e not your usual person who comes in the the WTC, this guy was offered alot of things by the goverment to keep things quite but turn't it down as he wanted to get the "truth out"

    again sorry about the lack of his name, i will find it, anyone remember or come across this?

  102. emp12345

    I see .... all of a sudden brainrose87 is a nuclear and demolition expert. Just watch the video and hear what this guy says about radiation produced by an UNDERGROUND nuke explosion. Why would I argue with someone who believes pancaking is what he saw happening. You just ignore what I say: UNDERGROUND nuke explosion.

  103. Fedem Seteehemeh

    i have three people on top of me by satellite technology. they don't listen to principles, because , one, they are in too much trouble to listen. principles are what we live by. one people who are on a passenger jet are in the driver's seat, like mohommad atta. he is the one who prays while he sits in the plane. his hands are at rest. next is the other passengers who want things like drinks. now the flight attendants who are busy are next with things to do, and are more busy than the passengers. and the pilots are the least important in principle because they have there hands on the controls of the airplane. on top of the pilots are he air traffic controllers, who oversee the plane. and the people behind the satellite systems in orbit are at the top of the ladder, and are the least important of all. these principles cannot be changed by anybody. you cannot make mohommad look like a hijacker, before you blame the pilots. you cannot blame the pilots before you blame the air traffic controllers. and you cannot blame the air traffic controllers before you blame the satellite systems people. now after you have the principles, you can go after specifics. who was in control of the different systems. thank you

    well 911 was bad but i was born in new York i guess that i was lucky but 911 was the worst thing that tourists could have done what do you think ??????????? but i can not believe that tourists would do that unless they were evil please if the people that did this are getting filthy rich then i want to ask them was it worth it. it is you no that it was not weapons but if any one of you did not like this then tell me nbut was it worth it?

    Let me just point out that "Questioning hypothesis held by consensus" is PRECISELY what science is all about. Perhaps that's what you meant to say instead of "Questioning hypothesis held by consensus is not science." Generally, consensus is the last place to seek truth.

  111. slpsa

    With all due respect. What you have written, is ridiculous. This is exactly the type of tripe that muddles the truth and makes anyone who opposes the official lie look disingenuous. Enough. Ask a certified engineer if they think they were nuked......lol. Go ahead.

  112. slpsa


  113. emp12345

    I am an engineer u dork. Why don't you make sure I can do some vertical seismic profiling in the WTC area instead of asking some brain dead engineer who agrees with your point of view. This is how science works. We use seismic profiling to prove or disprove whether and underground nuke explosion has taken place. If it turns out not to be the case you can laugh at me. You people just don't have 1 brain cell left. No independent thinking whatsoever. 911 was an inside job that is sure. Now we need to prove it. Seismic profiling is a good start.

  114. slpsa

    Well, perhaps, people are way ahead of you, 11 years later sir. It has already been looked at. Seismic readings were collected, by many different people, schools and organizations. You are about, 11 years too late. The data collected pointed to explosions and collapses. This is not new. Your theory has already been shot down. If you are an engineer mate, you might try not using words like dork to speak to your co employed. It makes you sound like a college freshman, not a certified engineer. I will not laugh, it is no laughing matter to me and never has been. I am saying, we as a profession, have already been down that road to check for things of that nature, and came up empty. They were implosions, of the most expert kind. With signatory thermitic reactions occurring as the buildings fell. You can ignore that or keep on going down the path that others have already taken. I am just trying to save you from wasting your time. It is a resounding no, no nukes here. It was a never before seen level of expertise used to drop those buildings. Nukes were not part of that. Please, just trust your elder experts son. I am sure your teachers and your employer, if you have one, under their breath, would tell you the same thing.

  115. emp12345

    they won't allow me to post. OK now I will be really civilised. Vertical Seismic Profiling is something different then the seismic signals generated during the collapse of the towers. With seismic profiling you measure the structure of the rock below the surface. Oil companies use this to find oil. Are you telling me that seismic profiling already has been done?? I don't think so. I know you are really convinced that your truth is the only truth, but what if you are wrong? You can prove me wrong by making a simple seismic profile of the WTC area. And please .... look it up what seismic profiling is before you start playing daddy with me again. I am an engineer in the oil field for 20 years, masters degree in physics.

    For reference, this was the entire statement:

    "Grasping fringe is not science. Questioning hypothesis held by consensus is not science. "asking questions" and refusing answers is not science."

    Within this context the quoted statement means it's not good enough to merely question the prevailing hypothesis or disbelieve it, you have to provide an alternative hypothesis and allow it to withstand scrutiny.

    "Generally, consensus is the last place to seek truth."

    Ah, the philosophy of the conspiracy theorist, who loves to dwell in the loneliness of the fringe.

  120. hk909

    Many alternative hypotheses have been provided to explain the various anomalies surrounding the events of 911. The problem is in allowing them to "withstand scrutiny." There can be no scrutiny of any hypothesis until there is a complete investigation of the 911 incident. There has not been such an investigation because the 911 Commission cherry-picked what it would hear and who it would allow to present evidence (such is the nature of all investigations). Now, since virtually every piece of physical evidence has been reduced to its constituent parts, there is nothing left to investigate. All that remains is verbal testimony and the various hypotheses put forth. In a word, "Science" has long ago been removed from the equation, so it's meaningless to demand proof that meets scientific criteria.

    Rascally ol' scatvette! Calling people "twoofers" and trolls, and then crying about insults? You've spun yourself right into a knot, scatvette!

  127. batvette

    You're trolling, That is not an ad hominem insult it is stating a fact.
    Run along now.

  128. rufusclyde

    No, that's not a fact, twirlin' ol' scatvette, it's a technique you use to debase other people. You lied about what Sibel Edmonds said, or you didn't know what she said, and then you chucked out disinfo chaff. Greasy ol' slidin' scatvette!

  129. batvette

    My statement:

    "Sibel Edmonds has never stated she believes 9/11 was an inside job"

    You've repeatedly called me a liar for that and you're lying yourself for it. Now you try and spread it into another thread. For the record for any other viewers, this was my statement.
    Since you have proven yourself to be the most dishonest and immature individual posting here I have no interest in convincing you of anything.

    fibbin' ol' scatvette! Whinin' and hammerin' away at your keyboard, hundres of posts, never discussing the documentaries directly, and using propaganda techniques like name-calling and reiterating the same sweeping generalizations. Whatcha doin' on this website, scatvette?

    I'm actually responding to the video. I wish someone [anyone] would do the same.

    Not supporting or denying any theory here, but honestly, the oil in Iraq is most useful for multinational corporations, not the US as a nation. It would be inaccurate to assume that because American citizens may not directly be reaping the rewards of Iraqi oil, that there is not an elite group of Americans enjoying the spoils of war.

  133. Ajene Farrar

    Confusion, yes, but complete ineptitude? Not quite. People in charge of handling emergency situations (like air traffic controllers, like the military, etc.) are trained to deal with the "unusual." That's why we get paid. Whether or not there was deliberate malfeasance on the part of any American citizen, the government should be explaining how so many people could be so poorly prepared for jobs, when they'd been warned repeatedly that a circumstance like 9/11 could one day happen.

    From the video, it does not appear that our air traffic system failed us. How could the military do so much worse?

    I'm sure there are those reaping the rewards from the Iraqi war. That doesn't prove that the American government was involved in the 9/11 attacks. Follow the money can be useful in an investigation but it doesn't always provide all the answers. Muslim fundamentalists have their own reason for doing the things they do. It isn't always all about money, is my point. Pure hatred can and is a strong motivator for some as well as religious conviction.

    I find this the most devastating testimony that the government was complicit and Cheney/Bush should be brought to trial, both for 9/11 and the years since.

    Obama has his own issues that need explanation in the wake of 9/11.

    Confused and confusing, half-baked in a crockpot, this bit of futz seems designed with dollars in mind: what new Truth About 9/11 can we invent to get some attention?

    I expected a real documentary about the military response to the 9/11 attacks. Instead, I sat through forty minutes of disjointed conjecture following meaningless blips on alleged radar screens. Whose footage was this? Most of the time, there was no identification of the dots and dashes moving around--just the ooooWEEEEoooo voice-over, suggesting horrible wrongdoing when nothing was apparent. Lingo and acronyms were tossed out without explanation; lots of maps were shown, with impossible-to-follow narration veering all over the place. Then came ominous music and reference to the infamous Operation Northwoods (which, incidentally, never became a mission). All meant to suggest (but remember, no theories are being offered)...what?

    In mid-air, passenger flights were "switched" with "drone planes"? Which were then aimed at the four 9/11 crash sites, killing thousands, with NO military brass aware that it was happening? All arranged by who, then? Dick Cheney, alone in his room? Cheney and Bush? Cheney and Bush and the Dark Lords of the Underworld? For what reason? So we could justify attacking our Great Enemy...Afghanistan? Or was it Iraq--"for oil"? (It's always "for oil"; we attacked, so where's all the oil?)

    After all the switching, deliberate deaths, and potential destruction of the government's own military hub...where did the real planes land? Was everyone on them killed to shut them up? What about the dozens of phone calls from the planes' crew and passengers, describing every minute of their ordeal? Were they just fakes, the grieving loved ones just making it all up? (Oh, wait...they're all in on it...) Where are the hijackers? If they weren't really the hijackers, why aren't they out waving and saying, "See? We're alive! Your government lies!" Where...Oh, why bother?

    As usual, the "filmmakers" (term used loosely) just throw a bunch of balls in the air and don't bother catching any of them; questions abound, with no plausible answers given. A subtitle suggestion for all these visual screeds: Sometimes A Vague Notion.

    Add this one to the long list of 9/11 Conspiracy Industry self-promos. Then skip it.
