- Some time after the Project for the New
American Century (PNAC) composed their manifesto, referring to a "New
Pearl Harbor" attack on America, an ultra-secret group of powerful
government insiders outlined a series of plans that would attempt to fulfill
every facet of their agenda.
- They considered and rejected many plans.
The plan they finally selected was ingenious and enormously profitable
for everyone involved. The plan called for airliner hijackings that were
in fact not hijackings at all.
- Instead pre-selected, early morning commercial
flights would be electronically commandeered and crashed into redundant
- Why early morning? Predictably a media
blizzard would commence while stunned Americans rubbed the sleep from their
eyes. The emotional overload would continue for the entire day and well
into the next. During that chaotic first day, disinformation (government-concocted
stories) would be released, informing the shocked citizens exactly who
perpetrated the treacherous deed.
- In the days that followed further "News"
releases would inform Americans of the identities and backgrounds of these
religious fanatics. Within a week we would know everything about the 19
Muslims who allegedly hijacked four airplanes and killed 3,000 Americans.
- As for the targets, a pair of architectural
white elephants were chosen, the massive, soaring, iconographic "Twin
Towers." In addition another electronically controlled airplane
would plow into a remodeled section of the Pentagon (occupied by Office
of Naval Intelligence). That fiery impact would signify an attack on America's
stronghold, in the public consciousness.
- The attacks were masterminded by a select
few of interconnected insiders who, not surprisingly, remain in power today.
Certain key members of Congress, the CIA, Mossad, Pentagon, and the White
House organized the plan to perfection.
- Secrecy was no problem. Anyone with foreknowledge
of the plan, who considered revealing the daring operation out of guilt
or misgiving, would be either threatened personally, have their family
threatened and have their story ridiculed and denied. After all, who in
the media would have believed 9-11 before it happened? Media complicity,
among top directors of the US media, was understood well in advance.
- How many were involved you ask? Probably
not more than a couple dozen. No more than fifty perhaps at the upper levels
of planning. A few Pentagon generals, a handful of US and Israeli intelligence
insiders, a half dozen White House ideologues, and certain corrupt Congressmen
and Cabinet members compromised by blackmail or debased patriotism.
- Beneath them, a cadre of true believers,
loyal footsoldiers and mercenaries actually did the dirty work. The flight
school drop outs belonged to this later group.
- A joint team of CIA and Mossad shadow
warriors supervised contract laborers who planted the explosives in the
weeks and months prior to the controlled demolitions. At the same time,
electronic guidance systems were tested and retested on large airplanes.
Nothing was left to chance.
- The NORAD stand down was one key element.
Whether White House or Pentagon insiders over-ruled top generals Eberhart,
Myers, Weaver et al, or whether these generals betrayed their country and
their sworn duty is debatable. Perhaps each general was compromised by
overt physical threats and or tempting, lucrative promises. Indeed, we
should recall that one such top general, General Richard Myers, was rewarded
with a promotion within days of the successful attack.
- Since the attack, you will have noticed
that those rumored connected to the attack have been amply rewarded.
But how, or why, did so many millions of otherwise rational and intelligent
people, with no stake in the event, agree to ignore the massive and overwhelming
suspicious evidence that indicated a conspiratorial crime rather than a
- Because to disagree with the official
government version of events (the planners version) would expose the dissident
to ridicule, recrimination or physical threat, or loss of job, career and,
particularly, social respect.
- Consider those patriotic whistleblowers
and dedicated American public servants who did attempt to alert their soon-to-be-promoted
superiors of the danger. Like FBI agent Colleen Rowley, Sybil Edmonds and
John O' Neill, anyone who opposed the plan could be killed, contained or
- The reasons for 9-11 were diverse and
extremely rewarding. While the risks were great, the rewards were far greater.
- Planners achieved enormous personal fortunes,
dictatorial power and a furtherance of a debased nationalism. Israel, which
supplied various Mossad loyalists (demolition experts?) months in advance,
gained the destruction of her enemies. Pentagon generals achieved promotions.
Wall Street masterminds achieved billions in profits with the complete
destruction of SEC records (When WTC-7 was demolished). Silverstein, the
WTC landlord, achieved hundreds of millions in damage claims. Intelligence
orgs achieved massive influx of money, tens of billions, as did the Pentagon.
Religious autocrats achieved a new crusade. While the risks were great---for
all involved---the rewards were far greater.
- How 9-11 actually happened is self-evident.
Why 9-11 happened is clearer still.
- Everyone involved had a personal reason,
an agenda, whether personal gain or a depraved sort of patriotism. Truly
9-11 was all about power, profit and yes, patriotism. The deaths of a
few thousand citizens would have been considered a small price to pay.
- To those readers who possess a moral
compass, who cannot conceive of such seemingly bizarre rationales, and
vehemently disagree with my scenario, I offer one final statement.
- Compare the motives of powerful men to
serial killers. The depraved serial killer, like a lone predator, kills
for no intelligent aim. Jeffrey Dahmer for example. Yet a conspiracy of
powerful government insiders achieves far greater ends than hundreds or
even thousands of serial killers. They change the course of history, seize
the ship of state and steer it in the direction they choose, and enrich
themselves and their cronies. If several thousand people must die in the
process, that is unfortunate but the end does justify the means. No ideologue
considers his methods immoral.
- A secret, powerful, state society of
serial killers may even be considered rational to themselves. Their agendas
and objectives-the furtherance of the state regime---may seem unselfish
and even patriotic. And if huge fortunes are to be gained, that becomes
a suitable reward for their risk.
