Cheney, 9/11- More
Uncomfortable Facts

By Devvy Kidd
Exclusive to

My last column, 9/11 - Why Are Americans Afraid Of The Truth? drew the expected death threats, profanity laced emails, including why I should have my female private parts spread out in the desert for rats to feed on. I wonder if their mothers would be proud? Each and every one of those emailers defended Dick Cheney. Despite their false bravado, all are cowards afraid of the truth.

But, really, how much does the average American really know about Dick Cheney other than the official, sanitized bio? Well, he was vice-president. He was Secretary of Defense. Back in the 80s, he served in Congress and in the 70s, was WH Chief of Staff under Gerald Ford. Cheney is a war mongering neocon who pays little attention to the U.S. Constitution. Here is an example:

Dick Cheney ordered the CIA to conceal counter-terrorism plan from Congress: "The former US vice-president Dick Cheney ordered the CIA conceal a highly secret counter-terrorist programme from Congress for eight years, possibly in breach of long-standing oversight laws." Who was Cheney to order the CIA to do anything?

Cheney's Shadow Government. "Seymour Hersh has been going around the country telling of a much more extensive assassination program that reported directly to Cheney. "It is a special wing of our special-operations community that is set up independently," Hersh explained at an appearance at the University of Minnesota (and repeated later to NPR’s Terry Gross), that “reported directly to the Cheney office.”

"According to Hersh, “they've been going into countries, not talking to the ambassador or the CIA station chief, and finding people on a list and executing them and leaving." Perhaps we will soon learn that these, too, were part of Cheney’s ever-expanding portfolio."

Reminds me of the right's hero, Oliver North. Like so many others, I watched gap toothed, Ollie, stand up in front of the world and lie to Congress. Gullible Americans bought his spiel, made him a hero and he's laughed all the way to the bank since then.

How many of those who emailed me have actually read the massive tome, the  Iran Contra Report? I began reading it at the fabulous Denver Public Library when I needed to do research. I set aside time and read. I finished reading it out in California while doing my research at the great main library in Sacramento. For those who don't remember or are too young to remember, this is an excellent overview:

"The Iran-contra Report, or Tower Commission Report, was delivered to President Ronald Reagan on February 26, 1987. The report documented the investigation into the Iran-Contra affair, a political scandal that rocked the U.S. government in the mid-1980s.

"In 1984, President Reagan and other high-ranking U.S. officials covertly arranged the sale of arms to Iran, an action forbidden under an arms embargo. While the extent of the presidents involvement is uncertain, at least some U.S. officials intended that the arms sales would be a trade for the release of U.S. hostages, held by Iranian-sponsored militants in Lebanon, and that the proceeds would be used to fund the brutal Nicaraguan Contras.

"In November 1986, President Reagan formed a commission led by former Senator John Tower to inquire into the affair. The Tower Commission Report strongly criticized a number of U.S. officials, including Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North, National Security Adviser John Poindexter, and Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger. The commission ultimately concluded that President Reagan knew about the arms shipment, but that he did not have full knowledge of many other details of the program, including the diversion of funds to the Contras. However, the president was chastised -- both in this report and in a later report issued by Congress -- for failing to know what was going on in his own administration."

Oliver North is no hero. He's a liar who worked in a secret government within a government:

"In 1984, Oliver North directly helped draft a plan in 1984 to impose martial law in the United States in the event of an emergency. This secret plan would suspend the U.S. Constitution and turn over control of the government to the little known agency at that time: FEMA. This plan would appoint military commanders to run state and local governments. Implementation of this plan would have been triggered by violent and wide spread internal dissent, disagreement with government policy or national opposition to any U.S. military invasion abroad. Essentially, it amounted to a complete and total suspension of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights."

Think Ronnie Reagan didn't know about it? Then Attorney General William French Smith, was so angry over it, he resigned.

How many know anything about the shooting down of KAL Flight 007? If you spend the considerable amount of time necessary to research it, there's no question Ronald Reagan and Secretary of State, George Shultz lied to the American people and the world. They sacrificed 63 Americans, including Congressman Larry McDonald, on the alter of geo political games.

People seem to have no problem believing dictators in banana republics lying to the people of their country. Of course, they lie! They have no problem accusing Reagan or Bush of lying if they're a Democrat. Republicans have no problem accusing Clinton and Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama of lying. Somehow that is acceptable. But, to state your opinion based on more than a couple hours of researching 9/11, and who was the mastermind behind 9/11, that simply is not allowed. Not if its your favorite Republican.

Some Americans who fight back against the truth act as if America has never had traitors within our borders. I guess they aren't familiar with Benedict Arnold. Hans Max Haupt was convicted of treason for aiding his son who was a spy for Germany during World War II. Ben-ami Kadish, Stewart Nozette and Jonathan Pollard were convicted of spying for Israel. FBI Agents convicted of espionage: Leandro Aragoncillo, Robert Hanssen, Richard Miller, Earl Edwin Pitts. Bill Clinton should have been tried for treason for selling our most sensitive military secrets to the communist Chinese; go read The Cox Report.

People should read more. Try Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA. How the Presidency was Co-opted b the CIA by Terry Reed and John Cummings. Also: Defrauding America: A Pattern of Related Scandals. Dirty Secrets of the CIA and other Government Operations. Written by insider, Rodney Stitch. The American people have been lied to by the very people they have trusted. A gentleman sent me an email with a quote which I looked up; page 7.  J. Edgar Hoover writing about communism. "Yet the individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists." Another emailer said you can sell people any lie that sounds good, but you can't sell them the truth.

A couple of men with closed minds said NWVs should never allow any of my columns again. Sure, crush the First Amendment because what I wrote disturbs your comfort zone. Doesn't that sound a little like this?

American Muslims Launch Petition to Limit Free Speech

9/11 is a conspiracy of such monstrous proportions involving rouge elements within our government that most Americans simply cannot process it, much less accept facts. In one of David Ray Griffin's thoroughly researched books: 9/11 Contradictions - An Open Letter to Congress and the Press, he asks some hard questions for which we have never received answers. The book recites many live interviews from that day about explosions inside the twin towers. Here is just one example, page 247:

Pat Dawson of NBC News gave a report in which he said: "Just moments ago I spoke to the Chief of Safety for the New York City Fire Department, Chief Albert Turi. He received word of the possibility of a secondary device, that is another bomb going off. He tried to get his men out as quickly as he could, but he said that there was another explosion which took place, and then an hour after the....first crash that took place....there was another explosion that took place in one of the towers here. He thinks that there were actually devices that were planted in the building." But, of course, someone like Chief Turi would know nothing about explosive devices.

There was enough prior warning to at least mitigate the bombing of Pearl Harbor, but that wasn't the plan:

FDR and the Pearl Harbor attack - (One of my older columns on WND)

"One shouldn't believe everything they read in a book, but in the case of “Day of Deceit: The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor” by Robert B. Stinnett, there can be no denying the awful truth that FDR not only knew the Japanese were going to attack, but official documents prove FDR wanted them to strike America first.

"Stinnett spent 16 years doing his research and fighting in the courts to obtain a plethora of shocking documents under the Freedom of Information Act – their authenticity cannot be denied. This link to a .pdf file provides a few of the official documents, i.e., “It (official document) directs the Hawaiian U.S. Army commander, Lt. Gen. Walter Short, to follow an official U.S. government desire: ‘The United States desires that Japan commit the first overt act.’”

"Pearl Harbor was no surprise. “Day of infamy,” indeed.

"While Stinnett should be commended for his commitment to expose the truth and help clear the names of those military officers wrongly blamed, I was shocked by his comment on page 259: “As heinous as it seems to families and veterans of World War II, of which the author is one, the Pearl Harbor attack was, from the White House perspective, something that had to be endured in order to stop a greater evil – the Nazi invaders in Europe who had begun the Holocaust and were poised to invade England.”

"There were 2,403 Americans who died at Pearl Harbor. According to Stinnett, who backs up FDR, those 2,403 Americans were acceptable casualties in order to take America into war. Stinnett goes on to say (same page), “Had the facts uncovered in this book been known immediately after the war ended, and had Roosevelt explained his war strategies and tactics to the families who lost their sons at Pearl Harbor, how different American history might be viewed today.”

"I feel confident in saying that the families of those 2,403 Americans slaughtered at Pearl Harbor with the full knowledge of a sitting president of the United States would not have been very understanding. I was further shocked by Stinnett’s next comments (same page), “The truth that has been told here does not diminish FDR’s magnificent contributions to the American people. His legacy should not be tarnished by the truth. As with all American presidents, Roosevelt must be viewed in the total context of his administration, not just Pearl Harbor.” Quite frankly, I would be ashamed to say such a thing."

There was more than enough warning about 9/11. Who turned a blind eye? Bush, Cheney and Condi Rice, to name a few. Always ask: Cui Bono? Who benefits?

9/11/01 as a Pretext for U.S. Imperialism

The 9/11/01 attack served as a general-purpose pretext for imperialist ventures that were planned years in advance of the attack. Deployments for the attack on Afghanistan began within days of the attack. When the attack failed to produce the capture of the alleged perpetrator of the 9/11/01 attack, Osama bin Laden, the administration shifted blame for the attack to Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, and commenced its invasion and occupation of Iraq.

The Project for a New American Century, a think-tank including of some of the core policy advisors for the Bush Administration, articulated the need for a "new Pearl Harbor" in the policy paper Rebuilding America's Defenses just one year before 9/11/01. The paper also foreshadowed the use of Saddam Hussein as a pretext for invasions of Central Asia.

e x c e r p t

title: Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategies, Forces and Resources for a New Century
authors: Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Dov Zakheim, William Kristol,

"... Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event -- like a new Pearl Harbor. ...

"... While the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justification, the need for a substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein ..."

I also recommend another of David Ray Griffin's fully researched books, The New Pearl Harbor Revisited: 9/11, the Cover-Up, and the Exposé.
Here is more research for those who wish to pursue the truth:

9/11 Timeline
The Most Comprehensive Minute By Minute Timeline On 9/11

Video: "Morgan O. Reynolds was a professor emeritus at Texas A&M University and of the Criminal Justice Center at the National Center for Policy Analysis head quartered in Dallas, TX. He served as chief economist for the United States Department of Labor during 2001-2002, George W. Bush's first term. In 2005, he gained public attention as the first prominent government official to publicly claim that 9/11 was an inside job, and is a member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth." A man with three degrees. Just another conspiracy nut wearing a tin foil hat.

This is a 2:15 video that every American should watch.

If you can't watch it all today, book mark it and watch in segments, but watch it. Architects & Engineers for 9/11 truth. Good, decent, Americans like Professor Steve Jones, was excoriated simply because he gave his expert opinion about the twin towers and the use of thermite. Watch the individuals in this video. One after another after another. Their credentials and experience are impeccable. I didn't see any of them wearing a tin foil hat or drinking Kool Aid.

This is also a very important documentary every American should watch. Seeking the truth requires sacrificing time, but it's the only way to become fully informed.

The New American Century

As you watch the video above, keep this in mind by writer/researcher, Jeri Lynn Ball written nearly 15 years ago:

"In Stalin's Russia, notes Mikhail Heller, enemies were blamed for everything; they were used to justify the invasion of Czechoslovakia (1968), the invasion of Afghanistan in 1980, and so on. The Soviet Communists were thus able to manipulate Soviet citizens into supporting government hunts for "terrorists," "traitors," and spies, for "liberation wars" for humanity.

"Using Marxist-Leninist strategies, the Russian, Chinese, and U.S. ruling elites have sought to frighten Americans and other populations with the specter of ruthless mass terror. They have created enemies and blamed them for everything including terrorist acts. They have used them manipulate Americans into supporting government hunts for "traitors," "terrorists," and these never ending "wars of national liberation." Their aim is to manipulate whole populations into supporting "wars of national liberation" and achieving not only the sovietization of "liberated" underdeveloped countries such as Afghanistan and Iraq, but also the full altruization and sovietization of the United States and other Western nations."
