Plans fade for U.S. trial of alleged 9/11 architect

Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the self-proclaimed mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, will probably remain in military detention without trial for the foreseeable future, according to Obama administration officials.

Does the fact that Muslims didn't do it is becoming widely known have anything to do with this?

Wikileaks Is Zionist Disinformation

In a recent interview, Julian Assange stated, "I'm constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud."

Plus Wikileaks reinforces the low estimates of Iraqi deaths.

9/11 coverup finds a voice on FOX with Judge Napolitano



Caution: This video may be intended to reinforce the Muslims did it theory. There's an admission of a coverup, but then we're told of a failure to act on the terror (presumably Muslim) cells.

The show aired on October 10, 2010.

VP Cheney involved in 9/11 alleges former NSA analyst

Wayne Madsen, an independent analyst who worked for the US National Security Agency (NSA) reported: "The real secret about the Cheney-Pentagon team is that it participated in other terrorist attacks attributed to "Al Qaeda." Future revelations about Cheney's covert team may expose the former Vice President's involvement in activities much more damaging than political assassinations and kidnappings, including the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001."

What do these guys know about 9/11 that you don't?

Obama has 'retribution' plan in event of a 9/11-like strike on US

Bob Woodward, in his book "Obama's War," writes that the United States has a secret "retribution" plan to bomb every known al-Qaida compound or training camp in the event of another 9/11-like attack on American soil by terrorists based in Pakistan.

Ahmadinejad stands by 9/11 probe call

Speaking before a gathering in Abadan, Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reiterated his call for an independent fact-finding committee to investigate the 9/11 attacks.

9/11: Analyzing Media Analysts

Given that 220 senior military, intelligence, law enforcement, and government personnel, 1200 architects and engineers, 250 pilots and aviation personnel, 400 professors, 300 survivors of 9/11 do not believe the official account of what happened on September 11, 2001, I wanted to know what news media analysts had to say about the absence of any serious investigation of this issue by major news media.

On the weekend of of the 9th anniversary of 9/11, I was invited to New York by I.N.N. World Report to co-moderate with Ryme Katkhouda a panel discussion on Islamophobia -- one of eight panel discussions at the symposium on "How The World Changed After 9/11". Ryme asked me to also attend another panel, "The 4th Estate Fails In Its Duty And The Birth Of Alternative Media", which I did, and couldn't help but end up analyzing the media analysts.

It has often been said "The first casualty of war is truth". What about truth in the never ending war on terror? The first panel, chaired by Priya Reddy -- an on air news anchor, documentary filmmaker, radio producer, and a print journalist -- was asked to look at modern reporting, military censorship, taboos, and techniques often used by media to hide the truth. The panel was asked to explore the birth of the citizen journalist movement, open publishing, and alternative broadcasting.

The panel was made up of Robin Andersen -- Professor of Communication and Media Studies at Fordam University, Danny Schecter -- author, filmmaker and commentator on economic issues, Lynn Landes -- publisher of The Landes Report and Ecotalk.org, and Christina Borjesson -- award winning journalist and author of "Into the Buzzsaw, Leading Journalists Expose the Myth of a Free Press".

While I learned from these experts, I also found myself disagreeing with them on a few issues. A brief commentary follows:

"I'm also a media critic," said Robin Andersen. She talked about the the non-existent weapons of mass destruction, and the "brutal images from Abu Ghraib". However, she did not call the Iraq war a crime.

Former Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson, chief U.S. prosecutor at the first Nuremberg trial, called waging aggressive war "the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole", according to Benjamin B. Ferencz, Chief Prosecutor for the United States Army at one of the twelve military trials held by the U.S. authorities at Nuremberg, Germany.

Ms. Andersen also did not talk about U.S. reparations for its invasion of Iraq. Recall that Iraq was forced to pay reparations for its invasion of Kuwait -- a former province of Iraq.

Danny Schecter spoke about the sinking of the USS Maine on February 15, 1898 which helped precipitate the Spanish-American War. He praised the National Geographic which in its dedication to the truth sent a submarine to get the facts, and found that it was an explosion in the boiler room that caused the sinking.

The National Geographic, in the matter of 9/11, has not shown the dedication to fact-finding that it did in the sinking of the USS Maine. Despite all the evidence to the contrary, Nat Geo has supported the official version of 9/11 by airing documentaries such as "Inside 9/11" and "9/11: Science and Conspiracies".

Mr. Schecter went on to say that the collapse of World Trade Center 7 (which is not even mentioned in "The 9/11 Commission Report", and which hundreds of scientists and engineers claim was an "inside job" using highly sophisticated explosives) "was not important unless we can connect it to something that's happening today."

I didn't quite understand Schecter's reasoning. Aren't the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and the "war on terror" happening today? Aren't they connected to 9/11?

Lynn Landes spoke of the tampering of voting machines to which the news media pays insufficient attention. It has turned off many voters, including Ms. Landes, and resulted in a "shadow government" running the U.S.

Christina Borjesson said she "agree[d] with Danny Schechter that looking into [World Trade Center] building 7 doesn't matter." Doesn't matter Ms. Borjesson?

The fatally flawed account of 9/11 has led to the deaths of uncounted Afghans and more than one million Iraqi's, the devastation of Afghanistan and Iraq, the killing of more that 4400 American soldiers, millions more have been wounded and/or made refugees. Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz and Harvard economist Linda Bilmes have estimated the Iraq war will eventually cost between $4 and $5 trillion -- that's over $13,000 for every U.S. citizen, and the costs continue to increase as the wars go on.

Ms. Borjesson added, "I know less about 9/11 today than I knew on 9/11." She said that she's been trying to get funds to "bring together journalists and 9/11 experts" to investigate what happend on 9/11. In a somewhat contradictory statement given her position on World Trade Center building 7, Ms. Borjesson said, "9/11 is the seminal event".

During the question and answer period, I asked Ms. Borjesson, "What can I do to help?" I did not get a response to my question.

When the program ended, I gave a copy of "9/11 Unveiled" to the four panel members and the moderator.

Iran's President Ahmadinejad applauded at UN

Iran's President Ahmadinejad "was greeted by applause when he walked into the United Nations General Assembly, and applauded again, even after questioning 9/11 and claiming that the American government may have been behind the attack", according to Fox News.

The Iranian President called for a U.N. fact finding group to investigate 9/11. Hundreds of US scientists, engineers, architects, military and intelligence personnel have been calling for an investigation for a couple of years.

A transcript of President Ahmadinejad's speech is available at http://gadebate.un.org/Portals/1/statements/634208557381562500IR_en.pdf. A video is available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4phNuwx8Hs&feature=player_embedded.

Enver Masud, founder of The Wisdom Fund, presented his book "9/11 Unveiled" to President Ahmadinejad at a dinner for Muslim leaders in New York on September 20, 2010.

"9/11 Unveiled" and a flyer titled "Muslims Didn't Do It" was mailed to Janet Napolitano, Secretary Department of Homeland Security, today.

'9/11 Unveiled' presented to President Ahmadinejad

Yesterday in New York, Mr. Enver Masud, founder of The Wisdom Fund, presented his book "9/11 Unveiled" to Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The occasion was a private dinner at the Warwick hotel in New York City hosted by Mohammad Khazaee, the Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations.

Approximately 50 Muslim leaders, including Minister Farrakhan and representatives of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Muslim American Society (MAS), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Truth & Justice Foundation attended.

Following dinner, President Ahmadinejad met with guests and invited questions and comments. He responded to each of them.

In his response to Mr. Masud's statement that the official account of 9/11 is false, President Ahmadinejad stated that he would read Mr. Masud's book "9/11 Unveiled".

"9/11 Unveiled" was mailed to President Obama and Attorney General Holder on March 24, 2009, and has since been presented to several US government officials.

"9/11 Unveiled" is available free at The Wisdom Fund.

President Ahmadinejad is scheduled to address the UN General Assembly on Thursday.

Disinformation: Noman Benotman's 'open letter to Osama bin Laden'

Who is Noman Benotman, and should we trust him?

The Quilliam Foundation claims that it is "a think tank." You would think that their website would have some thoughtful articles by Mr. Benotman. Yet we couldn't find a single article by Mr. Benotman at their website

According to his employer: "Noman Benotman has been appointed as Senior Analyst (Strategic Communications) at Quilliam. He is leading Quilliam’s work on de-radicalisation processes in the UK and abroad, working to raise international awareness of Jihadist recantations, co-ordinating Quilliam’s outreach to current and former extremists and using Quilliam as a platform from which to share his inside knowledge of al-Qaeda and other Jihadist groups with a wider audience."

As a Senior Analyst, surely Mr. Benotman is familiar with the work of Prof. David Ray Griffin.

Prof. Griffin, in a thoroughly researched article, claims, "Osama bin Laden has been dead for many years", and "that there is not even any good evidence for the claim that bin Laden was responsible for the 9/11 attacks."

Indeed, the evidence against Bin Laden, promised by Secretary of State Colin Powell on September 23, 2001, has yet to be made available to the public, and the FBI states that it has "no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11".

Noman Benotman's "open letter to Osama bin Laden" is disinformation. It is intended to keep alive the myth that Osama bin Laden was behind the attacks of September 11, 2001, and to permit the US to claim victory by staging the death of Osama bin Laden.

A comment on Eid — Muslims' day of celebration

Muslims are toning down Eid festivities in honor of September 11 writes Tara Bahrampour in the Washington Post. We agree. Eid observances should recognize that Muslims' day of celebration happens to coincide with a tragic day for Americans — Muslims included. But with the news media focused on 9/11, Muslims should use this opportunity to respectfully combat the Islamophobia that is raging across parts of the United States and Europe.

The facts speak for themselves. The 9/11 Commission Report is fatally flawed.

Just minutes after the alleged attack, standing in front of the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, Jamie McIntyre, CNN's senior Pentagon correspondent since November 1992, reported: "From my close up inspection there's no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon. . . . . The only pieces left that you can see are small enough that you could pick up in your hand. There are no large tail sections, wing sections, fuselage — nothing like that anywhere around which would indicate that the entire plane crashed into the side of the Pentagon."

At the September 12, 2001, Dept. of Defense (DoD) News Briefing by Assistant Secretary of Defense, Victoria Clarke, Ed Plaugher (fire chief of Arlington County), and others, "American Airlines", "Flight 77", "Boeing 757" were not even mentioned. Reporters on the scene were denied access, "handcuffed and dragged away".

In a front page article on September 12, 2001 -- On Flight 77: 'Our Plane Is Being Hijacked' — Marc Fisher and Don Phillips of the Washington Post reported that Barbara K. Olson called her husband twice in the final minutes before the crash of Flight 77. FBI exhibit P200054 from the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui contradicts the Solicitor General's account. It shows that Barbara Olson made only one phone call — it did not connect, and it lasted for 0 seconds.

The FBI's "Most Wanted Terrorists" web page does not state that Bin Laden is wanted for the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on the FBI's web page, Rex Tomb, the FBI's Chief of Investigative Publicity, is reported to have said, "The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden's Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11."

It’s past time that Muslims joined with the millions of Americans working to expose the false account of that tragic day in September 2001. Instead of being on the defensive, Muslims should be asking the news media and Congress why it’s not investigating 9/11.

9/11: Nine years on...

The Independent (UK) states: "Deena Burnett remembers the call from her husband on Flight 93."

In the trial of Zacarias Moussavi (the alleged 20th hijacker) FBI exhibits show that the US Solicitor General apparently lied about receiving phone calls from his wife Barbara Olson on board Flight 77.

In 2001 cell phone calls were "essentially impossible" and "American Airlines 757s [did] not have onboard phones for passenger use." Only two cell phone calls were made from the aircraft involved in 9/11.

In fact the US government's own records show that "The 9/11 Commission Report" is fatally flawed.

Pentagon transcripts, official records belie 'The 9/11 Commission Report'

Pentagon Transcripts, Official Records Belie 'The 9/11 Commission Report'

Hard evidence exists that American Airlines Flight 77 did not strike the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 -- the laws of science refute the official account of 9/11

by Enver Masud

At the September 12, 2001, Dept. of Defense News Briefing by Victoria Clarke, Assistant Secretary of Defense, "American Airlines", "Flight 77", "Boeing 757", were not even mentioned.

The security camera video of "Flight 77" released by the Pentagon has one frame showing something -- labeled "Approaching Aircraft" -- moving parallel to the ground about 100 yards in front of the Pentagon.

This is the U.S. government's evidence to support its claim that American Airlines Flight 77 struck the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

However, the government's own records -- Pentagon transcripts, official reports, flight data recorder, and the laws of science belie "The 9/11 Commission Report".

September 11, 2001: CNN News Report

Just minutes after the alleged attack, standing in front of the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, Jamie McIntyre, CNN's senior Pentagon correspondent since November 1992, reported: "From my close up inspection there's no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon. . . . . The only pieces left that you can see are small enough that you could pick up in your hand. There are no large tail sections, wing sections, fuselage -- nothing like that anywhere around which would indicate that the entire plane crashed into the side of the Pentagon."

This news report apparently was not rebroadcast, and a few years later McIntyre claimed on CNN (Wolf Blitzer's show) that he had been taken out of context -- the context is quite clear in McIntyre's September 11, 2001 broadcast from the Pentagon.

Lt Col Karen Kwiatowski, who from her fifth-floor, B-ring office at the Pentagon, witnessed "an unforgettable fireball, 20 to 30 feet in diameter" confirms McIntyre's account.

Writing in "9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out," Kwiatowski noted, "a strange absence of airliner debris, there was no sign of the kind of damage to the Pentagon structure one would expect from the impact of a large airliner. This visible evidence or lack thereof may also have been apparent to the secretary of defense, who in an unfortunate slip of the tongue referred to the aircraft that slammed into the Pentagon as a 'missile'."

Pentagon employee April Gallop, whose "desk was roughly 40 feet from the point where the plane allegedly hit the outside wall" stated in a sworn complaint (before the U.S. District Court Southern District of New York): "As she sat down to work there was an explosion, then another; walls collapsed and the ceiling fell in. Hit in the head, she was able to grab the baby and make her way towards the daylight showing through a blasted opening in the outside wall. There was no airplane wreckage and no burning airplane fuel anywhere; only rubble and dust."

Barbara Honegger, military affairs journalist, reported in her personal capacity that a pilot sent by Gen Larry Arnold (NORAD) "reported back that there was no evidence that a plane had hit the building." She added, "Multiple standard-issue, battery-operated wall clocks . . . stopped between 9:31 and 9:32-1/2 on September 11."

A diagram (derived from the "Pentagon Building Performance Report", Figure 7.9) indicates a "Slab deflected upward" which is consistent with either an explosion below the slab, or an upward blow by a hard object.

Major General Albert Stubblebine, U.S. Army (ret) -- former Commanding General of U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command, and head of Imagery Interpretation for Scientific and Technical Intelligence, stated in a video interview, "I don't know exactly what hit it, but I do know, from the photographs that I have analyzed and looked at very, very carefully, it was not an airplane."

September 12, 2001: Pentagon News Briefing

At the September 12, 2001, Dept. of Defense (DoD) News Briefing by Assistant Secretary of Defense, Victoria Clarke, Ed Plaugher (fire chief of Arlington County), and others, "American Airlines", "Flight 77", "Boeing 757" were not even mentioned.

How significant is this?

With the world's news media assembled at the Pentagon on the day after the alleged attack on the Pentagon by Arab hijackers flying American Airlines Flight 77 -- a Boeing 757 -- "American Airlines", "Flight 77", "Boeing 757" were not considered important enough to mention at the Pentagon News Briefing the day after the alleged attack!

Fire chief Ed Plaugher was asked by a reporter, "Is there anything left of the aircraft at all?" Plaugher responded, "there are some small pieces of aircraft ... there's no fuselage sections and that sort of thing."

When asked, "Chief, there are small pieces of the plane virtually all over, out over the highway, tiny pieces. Would you say the plane exploded, virtually exploded on impact due to the fuel", Plaugher reponded "You know, I'd rather not comment on that."

The transcript reveals that reporters were being "threatened or, in fact, handcuffed and dragged away".

This year, the transcript of the September 12, 2001 News Briefing was removed from the DoD website.

September 15, 2001: Pentagon News Briefing

At the September 15, 2001, Dept. of Defense (DoD) News Briefing by Mr. Lee Evey, Pentagon Renovation Manager, Rear Adm. Craig R. Quigley, deputy assistant secretary of Defense for Public Affairs, and others, it was apparent that there were lingering doubts about what had struck the Pentagon on September 11.

When Mr. Evey said, "the nose of the aircraft broke through this innermost wall of C Ring", a reporter asked, "One thing that's confusing -- if it came in the way you described, at an angle, why then are not the wings outside? I mean, the wings would have shorn off. The tail would have shorn off. And yet there's apparently no evidence of the aircraft outside the E Ring." Evey replied, "Actually, there's considerable evidence of the aircraft outside the E Ring. It's just not very visible."

Apparently, no one asked how "the nose of the aircraft" (a relatively weak component of the aircraft) remained sufficiently intact to penetrate the C Ring -- the E Ring is the outermost ring.

'Pentagon Building Performance Report'

In January 2003, the U.S. government's National Institute of Standards and Technology released the "Pentagon Building Performance Report" that belies the official account of 9/11.

Page 35 of this report reads: "An examination of the area encompassed by extending the line of travel of the aircraft to the face of the building shows that there are no discrete marks on the building corresponding to the positions of the outer third of the right wing. The size and position of the actual opening in the facade of the building (from column line 8 to column line 18) indicate that no portion of the outer two-thirds of the right wing and no portion of the outer one-third of the left wing actually entered the building."

Had a Boeing 757 struck the Pentagon, its wings would probably have been found outside the Pentagon. But these wings were not found outside the Pentagon!

Photographs, and CNN's Jamie McIntyre confirm this fact.

Page 36 of this report reads: "The height of the damage to the facade of the building was much less than the height of the aircraft's tail. At approximately 45 ft, the tail height was nearly as tall as the first four floors of the building. Obvious visible damage extended only over the lowest two floors, to approximately 25 ft above grade.

This implies that whatever struck the Pentagon, couldn't have been a Boeing 757.

Page 39 of this report reads: "Most likely, the wings of the aircraft were severed as the aircraft penetrated the facade of the building. Even if portions of the wings remained intact after passing through the plane of the facade, the structural damage pattern indicates that the wings were severed before the aircraft penetrated more than a few dozen feet into the building."

As previously noted, these wings were not found outside the Pentagon!

From the preceding it is clear that the "Pentagon Building Performance Report" -- prepared by the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Structural Engineering Institute, and released by the U.S. government's National Institute of Standards and Technology -- contradicts the official account of 9/11.

'Arlington County After-Action Report'

The "Arlington County After-Action Report" describes the occurrence of an event at the Pentagon minutes before the alleged strike of Flight 77, and the presence of Fort Myer Unit 161 at the Pentagon prior to impact.

Annex A, Page A-4 of this report states: "Captain Dennis Gilroy and his team were already on station at the Pentagon when Flight #77 slammed into it, just beyond the heliport. Foam 161 caught fire and suffered a flat tire from flying debris. Firefighters Mark Skipper and Alan Wallace were outside the vehicle at impact and received burns and lacerations. . . . Captain Gilroy called the Fort Myer Fire Department, reporting for the first time the actual location of the crash."

Did Fort Myer Unit 161 go the Pentagon following an explosion -- prior to the alleged strike of Flight 77?

It is consistent with the reporter's question at the September 12 News Briefing, "Chief, there are small pieces of the plane virtually all over, out over the highway, tiny pieces. Would you say the plane exploded, virtually exploded on impact due to the fuel"?

It is consistent with April Gallop's sworn complaint that "she was able to grab the baby and make her way towards the daylight showing through a blasted opening in the outside wall. There was no airplane wreckage and no burning airplane fuel anywhere; only rubble and dust."

It is consistent with military affairs journalist Barbara Honegger's account of "Multiple standard-issue, battery-operated wall clocks . . . stopped between 9:31 and 9:32-1/2 on September 11."

Fort Myer Unit 161's arrival at the Pentagon to put out a fire prior to the strike by "Flight 77" is not consistent with the official account of 9/11.

'American Airlines' Flight Data Recorder

Pilots for 9/11 Truth state: "video captured by the parking gate cam is in direct conflict with the Aircraft Flight Data Recorder data released by the NTSB" (National Transportation Safety Board) pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act request. The "Pentagon Building Performance Report" states (page 14): "A Pentagon security camera located near the northwest corner of the building recorded the aircraft as it approached the building. Five photographs (figures 3.3 through 3.7), taken approximately one second apart, show the approaching aircraft and the ensuing fireball associated with the initial impact. The first photograph (figure 3.3) captured an image of the aircraft when it was approximately 320 ft (approximately 0.42 second) from impact with the west wall of the Pentagon. Two photographs (figures 3.3 and 3.7), when compared, seem to show that the top of the fuselage of the aircraft was no more than approximately 20 ft above the ground when the first photograph of this series was taken."

On page 35 of this report we're told, "The site data indicate that the aircraft fuselage impacted the building at column line 14 at an angle of approximately 42 degrees to the normal to the face of the building, at or slightly below the second-story slab."

However, the NTSB animation (January 2002), according to Pilots for 9/11 Truth, shows an aircraft flying north of the Navy Annex, not leveling off, and being too high to have hit the Pentagon.

When confronted with this discrepancy, NTSB Chief Jim Potter said: "I have no comment on the existence of the discrepancies."

Eyewitnesses state categorically that a plane (which they believed was Flight 77) flew north of the Citgo gas station (now the Navy Exchange) located west of the Pentagon on South Joyce Street at Columbia Pike, rather than flying south of the gas station as stated in official reports.

G-Forces Would Have Destroyed the Boeing 757

Pilots for 9/11 Truth conclude: "Arlington's unique topography and obstacles along American 77 "final leg" to the Pentagon make this approach completely impossible as we will demonstrate.

Flight 77 is alleged to have flown over Columbia Pike and the Virginia Department of Transportation communications tower located 1143 yards west of the Pentagon before striking the Pentagon at "530 miles per hour".

The antenna on the VDOT tower has been determined to be 169 ft above the ground with a ground elevation of 135 feet (FCC Registration Number 1016111). The ground elevation of the Pentagon is 33 feet according to USGS.

This path would have taken Flight 77 south of the gas station at the intersection of Columbia Pike and S. Joyce Street, and over the intersection of Columbia Pike and Virginia Route 27. VA-27 goes over Columbia Pike, and forms about a 20 feet tall barrier, about 150 yards out from the west wall of the Pentagon, in the alleged path of Flight 77.

After this intersection Flight 77 would have been over Pentagon ground with about 150 yards remaining to level out and to strike the Pentagon "slightly below the second floor slab" at "an angle of approximately 42 degrees".

According to the "Pentagon Building Performance Report" (page 14), "the top of the fuselage of the aircraft was no more than approximately 20 ft above the ground when the first photograph" from the security camera was taken.

Leaving aside the discrepancies between the official account of Flight 77, and the Flight Data Recorder (which NTSB refuses to answer), Pilots for 9/11 Truth calculated the force on the Boeing 757 at 34 Gs, i.e. 34 times the force due to gravity, at the point that it would have to transition from its downward flight to level flight.

With a virtual weight of about 8.5 million pounds, Flight 77 could not have leveled off before striking the Pentagon. It would have crashed at the intersection of Columbia Pike and VA-27. This alone is sufficient to refute the official account of "Flight 77" -- Flight 77 cannot violate the laws of science.

Pilots for 9/11 Truth did another calculation by lowering the height of "Flight 77" below that shown by the FDR. They lowered it to the top of the VDOT antenna.

With this very conservative case, they calculated the force on the Boeing 757 at 11.2 Gs. "11.2 Gs was never recorded in the FDR. 11.2 Gs would rip the aircraft apart" they wrote.

Impossible: Damage Path and Flight Path Aligned

With Flight 77 alleged to have struck the Pentagon at "an angle of approximately 42 degrees", the flight path and the damage path cannot possibly form a straight line.

Flying at "an angle of approximately 42 degrees" the Boeing 757's starboard wing would have struck the west wall of the Pentagon first. This would cause the aircraft to veer to the right, and the damage path would be in line with the aircraft's new heading -- not with the aircraft's heading prior to impact.

However, the "Pentagon Building Performance Report" Figures 6.2 and 6.6 show that the flight path and damage path (damage path also illustrated in the "Arlington County After Action Report", page 23) do form a straight line extending from the center-line of the fuselage of the aircraft to where the "the nose of the aircraft broke through this innermost wall of C Ring".

The flight path and damage path depicted forming a straight line in Figures 6.2 and 6.6 violate the laws of science. This alone is sufficient to refute the official account of "Flight 77" -- Flight 77 cannot violate the laws of science.

Therefore, what looks like a puff of smoke -- labeled "Approaching Aircraft" in the security camera video, cannot possibly be a Boeing 757.

Conclusion

To conclude, the official account of Flight 77 -- supported only by one frame from a security camera showing a puff of something approaching the Pentagon -- is contradicted by the transcripts of Pentagon News Briefings conducted on September 12 and 15; by the "Pentagon Building Performance Report"; by the "Arlington County After-Action Report"; and by the Flight Data Recorder provided by the NTSB.

The official account of Flight 77 contradicts the laws of science. Flight 77 could not have withstood the calculated G-force when it would have had to level out -- about 100 yards before striking the Pentagon -- with "the top of the fuselage of the aircraft . . . no more than approximately 20 ft above the ground". The flight path of a Boeing 757 traveling at "530 miles per hour", striking the Pentagon at "an angle of approximately 42 degrees", and the resulting damage path inside the Pentagon cannot possibly form a straight line.

NASA flight director confirms 9/11 aircraft speed as the 'elephant in the room'

Pilots for 9/11 Truth have analyzed the speeds reported for the aircraft utilized on 9/11. Numerous aviation experts have voiced their concerns regarding the extremely excessive speeds reported above Maximum Operating for the 757 and 767, particularly, United and American Airlines 757/767 Captains who have actual flight time in all 4 aircraft reportedly used on 9/11. These experts state the speeds are impossible to achieve near sea level in thick air if the aircraft were a standard 757/767 as reported. Combined with the fact the airplane which was reported to strike the south tower of the World Trade Center was also producing high G Loading while turning and pulling out from a dive, the whole issue becomes incomprehensible to fathom a standard 767 can perform such maneuvers at such intense speeds exceeding Maximum Operating limits of the aircraft.

State crimes against democracy, hidden in plain sight

At 5:21 PM on 9/11, Building 7 of the World Trade Center collapsed, even though it had not been hit by a plane - a fact that is important because of the widespread acceptance of the idea, in spite of its scientific absurdity, that the Twin Towers collapsed because of the combined effect of the impact of the airliners plus the ensuing jet-fuel-fed fires. The collapse of World Trade Center 7 (WTC 7) thereby challenges the official account of the destruction of the World Trade Center, according to which it was accomplished by al-Qaeda hijackers, even if one accepts the government's scientifically impossible account of the Twin Towers. This fact was recently emphasized in the title of a review article based on my 2009 book, The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7,[1] by National Medal of Science-winner Lynn Margulis: "Two Hit, Three Down - The Biggest Lie."

Airline pilot cleared of role in 9/11 after 'nine years of hell'

The Guardian (UK) reported: Lotfi Raissi, an Algerian living in Britain who lost his career as an airline pilot, suffered wrongful imprisonment and damage to his health, will now be eligible for up to £2m compensation. . . .

Raissi's arrest, at his home in Colnbrook, Berkshire, 10 days after the 9/11 attacks, followed an extradition request from the FBI. In court, where he awaited extradition to the US on a holding charge, he was described by British lawyers representing the US as one of the lead instructors of the four hijackers.

Pentagon employee April Gallop case dismissed

On April 16, 2010, it was reported that William Veale, the attorney representing April Gallop, wrote: "Judge Chin has just dismissed the Gallop case. He said that the allegations are frivolous and based on fantasy and delusion."

"April Gallop's . . . desk was roughly 40 feet from the point where the plane [Flight 77] allegedly hit the outside wall. As she sat down to work there was an explosion, then another; walls collapsed and the ceiling fell in. Hit in the head, she was able to grab the baby and make her way towards the daylight showing through a blasted opening in the outside wall. There was no airplane wreckage and no burning airplane fuel anywhere; only rubble and dust."

Fantasy and delusion, Judge Chin? Did you examine the evidence?

On April 16, the Los Angeles Times reported that President Obama "has nominated U.S. District Judge Denny Chin for the New York-based 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals."

Prof. Jean Bethke Elshtain challenged to defend her position on 9/11

Prof. Jean Bethke Elshtain
Professor of Social and Political Ethics
Divinity School
The University of Chicago

Dear Prof. Bethke:

Regarding my comments on 9/11, at the Berkeley Center program "Ending Wars Well: Just War Theory and Conflict's End", my book "9/11 Unveiled" presents hard evidence that the official version of 9/11 is fatally flawed.

Robert D. Crane, Co-founder, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Washington, D.C., Deputy Director for Planning at the National Security Council, and Principal Foreign Policy Adviser to Richard Nixon wrote:

"9/11 Unveiled . . . is the best short summary of what most Americans and virtually all of the rest of the world consider to be the '9/11 mystery'."

"9/11 Unveiled" is a free download at:

The transcripts, photos, videos, Flight Data Recorder info, etc. referenced in the book are available at:

http://www.twf.org/News/News911.html

My challenge to you (and your colleagues) remains open: present the evidence supporting the official version of 9/11. I will present evidence contradicting the official position.

To my knowledge, no government spokesperson is willing to defend the official position in a public forum.

Assistant Secretary Posner challenged to answer 9/11 skeptics

Yesterday, at the AMA Foundation's Forum on National Security & American Muslims, Michael H. Posner — Assistant Secretary, U.S. Department of State — was challenged to answer 9/11 skeptics.

"9/11 is central to national security, terrorism and human rights," said Mr. Enver Masud, Founder of The Wisdom Fund. He added that Osama bin Laden is not wanted for 9/11 by the FBI. BBC News has reported several hijackers are alive. A recent Angus Reid poll concludes that 26% of Americans do not believe The 9/11 Commission Report.

Mr. Masud then handed Mr. Posner his book "9/11 Unveiled" together with a letter to President Obama, and a copy of a quarter-page, newspaper advertisement that contains highlights from his book.

Mr. Posner's response was that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed had admitted to planning 9/11.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed admitted his role in 9/11 after being waterboarded 183 times. Skeptics of the official report do not believe that KSM is the "mastermind" of 9/11.

Nihad Awad, Executive Director and co-founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and Sahar Aziz of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee also spoke at the forum.

Among those attending the forum was Mr. Darron Paul Monteiro, Associate Director White House Office of Public Engagement. He was scheduled to speak at the event, but was not permitted to do so by the White House.

The forum was moderated by Dr. Agha Saeed, Founder and Chairman of American Muslim Alliance Foundation, and sponsored by Muhammad Salim Akhtar, National Director of the American Muslim Task Force on Civil Rights and Elections.

Mr. Masud is also the author of "The War on Islam." An expanded, 5th edition is to be released on April 17, 2010 — the 15th anniversary of The Wisdom Fund.

Staging Bin Laden’s 'death'

Enver Masud, founder of The Wisdom Fund, says, "It appears that we are being primed for the 'death' of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden."

Attorney General Eric Holder told a House panel this month that bin Laden "will never appear in an American courtroom."

Others who have examined “Bin Laden’s tapes” have concluded that Bin Laden is dead.

US Defense Secretary Robert Gates admitted that the US has had no reliable information on the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden in years.

But the US needs a neat ending to its war on Afghanistan.

Staging Bin Laden’s death will be seen as a fitting end to this genocidal war for the control of energy resources. Of course it will have to be done so that visual identification is not possible.

We suspect that when Bin Laden is “killed,” we’ll just have to trust the folks that lied us into war to confirm they got him.

One in four Americans believe 9/11 was a fabrication and pretext for war

The following are the results of an Angus Reid poll:

Do you agree or disagree with this statement? – “The Sept. 11 incident was a big fabrication as a pretext for the campaign against terrorism and a prelude for staging an invasion against Afghanistan.”

Result: 26% agree; 12% not sure; 62% disagree.

The commission that investigated the events of Sept. 11, 2001 concluded that an attack was carried out by 19 hijackers who were members of the al-Qaeda terrorist organization, led by Osama bin Laden. Do you believe this is what actually happened on 9/11?

Result: 12% said no; 21% not sure; 67% said yes.

A leading Japanese politician espouses a 9/11 fantasy

Re Editorial, "A leading Japanese politician espouses a 9/11 fantasy," Washington Post, March 8, 2010

If you believe it's a fantasy, why does the government refuse to answer the questions raised by more than 1000 architects and engineers, dozens of pilots, military and intelligence personnel, etc.?

During my 3-week, 9/11 lecture tour of South Africa — http://www.twf.org/911.html — I spoke to hundreds daily, was on national radio, and was interviewed on a television show broadcast to more than 20 countries. Virtually no one disagreed with me that The 9/11 Commission Report was fatally flawed.

The US embassy declined to provide someone to rebut me, despite the fact that the radio station, SABC, waited over a week for them.

I managed a multidisciplinary team of 150 persons at the US Dept of Energy, have consulted for USAID and the World Bank, and do not put my reputation on the line lightly.

The official version of events is the fantasy.

Taliban 'imposed strict isolation on Osama bin Laden after 1998 to prevent him from carrying out any plots against the United States'

Gareth Porter, Inter Press Service, writes: Evidence now available from various sources, including recently declassified U.S. State Department documents, shows that the Taliban regime led by Mullah Mohammad Omar imposed strict isolation on Osama bin Laden after 1998 to prevent him from carrying out any plots against the United States.

Pentagon: North approach impact analysis

Rob Balsamo, Pilots for 9/11 Truth, writes: "It is physically impossible for a plane approaching the Pentagon on a flight path consistent with eyewitnesses statements to have caused the physical damage to the light poles, generator trailer, and Pentagon as photographically documented and reported. The following technical analysis will present the calculations that demonstrate this simple scientific fact."
