Officials question The 9/11 Commission Report

Many senior members of the U.S. military, intelligence services, and government have criticised the 9/11 Commission Report. Some allege government complicity in the terrible acts of 9/11. The collective voices of these officials lend credibility to the claim that the 9/11 Commission Report is seriously flawed.

On October 26, 2004 "an alliance of 100 prominent Americans and 40 family members of those killed on 9/11 today announced the release of the 911 Truth Statement, a call for immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur."

Conversation in Hebrew prior to 9/11

According to the Muckraker Report, on February 9, 2001, an unidentifed source sent an email to Attorney General Ashcroft about a conversation in which a man is reported to have said in Hebrew, “The Americans will learn what it is to live with terrorists after the planes hit the twins in September.”

Two FBI agents, identified as Agent Robin Gritz and Agent Andrew Stengel, are alleged to have visited the source on June 26, 2001, but were unable to provide a guarantee of protection without which the source was unwilling to disclose the complete details of what he heard.

The Muckraker Report claims to have received copies of the contact cards that Agents Gritz and Stengel left with the source. Kathy at the FBI National Press Office informed the Muckraker Report that to confirm the agent's visit they needed to file a Freedom of Information Act request.

Abu Zubaida and the '9/11 bombings'

Nic Robertson, CNN Senior International Correspondent, said, "Zubaida was vital to the success of the 9/11 bombings." The "9/11 bombings"?

Nic made the comment on Anderson Cooper 360, November 20, during his interview of Omar Nasiri, author of "Inside the Jihad."

BBC changes 5-year-old, hijackers alive story

Under the FBI picture of Waleed al Shehri BBC have added the words "A man called Waleed Al Shehri...". Stave Herrmann, in his BBC blog on "9/11 conspiracy theory," writes: "The confusion over names and identities we reported back in 2001 may have arisen because these were common Arabic and Islamic names.... The FBI is confident that it has positively identified the nineteen hijackers responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks."

Only 16 percent say the government is telling the truth

According to a poll by the New York Times and CBS News, conducted from Oct. 5 to Oct. 8, 2006, 53 per cent of respondents think the Bush administration is hiding something, and 28 per cent believe it is lying. Only 16 per cent of respondents say the government is telling the truth on what it knew prior to the terrorist attacks.

VIDEO: 9/11 Mysteries

"Excellent. The best of the 9/11 movies." --David Ray Griffin, author of The New Pearl Harbor

"WOW! is my reaction to this movie. Great insight into demolitions and what really happened on 9/11/2001." --Steven E. Jones, physics professor, Brigham Young University

"An outstanding contribution to understanding 9/11. Simply superb." --James H. Fetzer, founder, Scholars for 911 Truth

Watch this video, and see if you still believe the U.S. government's conspiracy theory.

NIST’s findings do not support the 'pancake theory' of collapse

NIST’s findings do not support the “pancake theory” of collapse, which is premised on a progressive failure of the floor systems in the WTC towers (the composite floor system—that connected the core columns and the perimeter columns—consisted of a grid of steel “trusses” integrated with a concrete slab; see diagram below). Instead, the NIST investigation showed conclusively that the failure of the inwardly bowed perimeter columns initiated collapse and that the occurrence of this inward bowing required the sagging floors to remain connected to the columns and pull the columns inwards. Thus, the floors did not fail progressively to cause a pancaking phenomenon.

9/11 report director specializes in creating 'public myths'

Dr. Philip D. Zelikow served as the Staff Director of the 9/11 Commission. In this capacity he basically determined who was interviewed, and what made it into The 9/11 Commission Report. His background is relevant to the credibility of the Commission's report.

Prof. Zelikow's area of academic expertise is the creation and maintenance of, in his words, “public myths” or “public presumptions,” which he defines as “beliefs (1) thought to be true (although not necessarily known to be true with certainty), and (2) shared in common within the relevant political community."

Pentagon attacked earlier than reported

Barbara Honneger, Senior Military Affairs journalist at the Naval Postgraduate School, writes, "if the official story that Flight 77 hit the Pentagon at 9:37 were true, Flight 77 could not have been the source of massive damage to the west side of the building a minimum of five minutes earlier at 9:32."

Based on several clocks that stopped at or around 9:32 am, and eyewitness accounts, Ms. Honegger confirms that the "Pentagon was attacked by bomb(s) at or around 9:32 am, possibly followed by an impact from an airborne object significantly smaller than Flight 77, a Boeing 757." Then White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales, during a speech on August 27, 2002, stated: "The Pentagon was attacked at 9:32."

What really happened on September 11?

The 110-story towers of the World Trade Center were obliterated. The Pentagon suffered massive damage. This much is clear. Much else remains a mystery.

The towers could not have collapsed the way the The 9/11 Commission Report tells us, it gives no explanation for the collapse of the 47-story Building 7 of the World Trade Center, the hole in the Pentagon wall appears too small to have been made by a Boeing 757, and apparently Osama Bin Laden is not wanted by the FBI for the events of September 11, 2001.

BYU places '9/11 truth' professor on paid leave

Brigham Young University placed physics professor Steven Jones on paid leave Thursday while it reviews his involvement in the so-called "9/11 truth movement" that accuses unnamed government agencies of orchestrating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center.

The disbelievers

The Washington Post published a long article in which it identifies some of the leaders of the 9/11 truth movement, and some of its critics. It restates previous poll results:

A recent Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll of 1,010 Americans found that 36 percent suspect the U.S. government promoted the attacks or intentionally sat on its hands. Sixteen percent believe explosives brought down the towers. Twelve percent believe a cruise
missile hit the Pentagon.

Distrust percolates more strongly near Ground Zero. A Zogby International poll of New York City residents two years ago found 49.3 percent believed the government "consciously failed to act."

U.S. government rebuts 9/11 sceptics

The U.S. Dept. of State, and the National Institutes of Science and Technology have issued rebuttals of alternative 9/11 theories. The rebuttals "faily miserably" say the folks at PrisonPlanet.com. Jim Hoffman of 911Research writes that "NIST's new FAQ avoids answering the central charges".

One in 3 Americans say U.S. aided 9-11

More than one-third of Americans suspect federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East, according to a new poll.

9/11 panel suspected deception by Pentagon

Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon's initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.

Lecturer under fire for 9/11 conspiracy belief

Wisconsin lawmakers are demanding that a University of Wisconsin-Madison lecturer be pulled from his fall teaching position because of his belief that the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were not carried out by terrorists, but by the U.S. government.

Kevin Barrett, who is scheduled to teach the course "Islam: Religion and Culture," said his views on the 9/11 attacks should not come as a surprise to anyone.

"I've been saying these things for three years, on local and national radio and TV, while teaching at UW-Madison and Edgewood College of Madison," he said. "Nobody even complained before, least of all the students."

"The appropriate question to ask about professors who give their opinions about 9/11 in the classroom, whether to embrace or reject the official theory," says David Ray Griffin— professor emeritus at the Claremont School of Theology, "is the standard one: Do they do so in an academically responsible manner, supporting their opinions with evidence in a way that could be defended before their peers?"

9/11 and 7/7: Mere coincidence?

Christopher Bollyn writes: "Can it really be a mere coincidence that a crisis management company was running a terror drill that simulated terrorist bombings on the very same London underground trains and stations at the very same time as duplicate real bombings were occurring? Should the fact that the very same coincidence occurred on the morning of September 11th 2001 when FEMA was conducting a simulated bioterrorism attack in New York raise any eyebrows?

"What about the fact that on the morning of September 11h 2001, officials at the Chantilly, Va.-based National Reconnaissance Office had planned and was running an exercise in which an errant aircraft crashed into one of its buildings?"

Griffin takes aim at official 9/11 conspiracy theory

It wasn't until a colleague sent Dr. David Ray Griffin an e-mail with Paul Thompson's timeline—an exact, minute-by-minute accounting of the events of Sept. 11 based entirely on mainstream media accounts—that he changed his mind. "The most glaring anomaly," Griffin now says, "was that none of the hijacked planes were intercepted, even though all of them would have been, had standard procedure been followed."

According to Gen. Ralph Eberhart, head of North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), from the time the FAA senses something is wrong, it takes about a minute to contact NORAD, after which NORAD, Eberhart says, can scramble fighter jets "within a matter of minutes to anywhere in the United States." So what happened on that morning?

Pentagon C-ring exit hole mystery

"The C-ring exit hole is significant," writes Michael Meyer, "because it is not consistent with building damage from a Boeing 757 impact.  The C-Ring exit hole carries a unique signature, which can only be explained by something other than a 757 impact.  No explanation is offered for this hole in the Pentagon Building Performance Report  or the official 9-11 Commission Report."

Group meets Malaysian PM to reopen investigation

The Reopen 911 organisation is offering US$1 million to anyone who can prove that explosives were not used to destroy the World Trade Center on 9/11.

Pentagon: Impossible flight

The Impossibility of Flying Heavy Aircraft Without Training, by Joel Harel at Physics911.net, provides facts and arguments which appear to discredit the allegation that American Airlines Flight 77 - a Boeing 757 - crashed into the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

Among the points he makes is that "for the aircraft to impact the ground floor of the Pentagon, Hanjour would have needed to have flown in with the engines buried in the Pentagon lawn." Available photos do not indicate such damage to the Pentagon lawn.

FBI: Bin Laden not wanted for 9-11?

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.

It states: "Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 7, 1998, bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. These attacks killed over 200 people. In addition, Bin Laden is a suspect in other terrorist attacks throughout the world."

When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on the FBI's web page, Rex Tomb of the FBI's public affairs unit 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."

Bin Laden, in a September 28, 2001 interview with the Pakistani newspaper Ummat, is reported to have said: "I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States."

On September 23, 2001 the BBC reported that four of the hijack "suspects"—Waleed Al Shehri, Abdulaziz Al Omari, Saeed Alghamdi, and possibly Khalid Al Midhar—were alive, and that FBI Director Robert Mueller acknowledged "that the identity of several of the suicide hijackers is in doubt."

The evidence promised by Secretary of State Colin Powell in September 2001 has yet to be made available to the public.

70 million support new 9/11 investigation

A Zogby poll indicates over 70 million American adults support a new 9/11 invstigation, 42% believe there has indeed been a cover up (with 10% unsure) and 45% think "Congress or an International Tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any US government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their success" (with 8% unsure).

The poll was commissioned by 911Truth.org "to inform deliberations at the June 2~4 '9/11: Revealing the Truth, Reclaiming Our Future' conference in Chicago." An August 2004 poll by Zogby International found that "half (49.3%) of New York City residents and 41% of New York citizens overall say that some of our leaders "knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act."

What does the new Pentagon video prove?

Yesterday the Pentagon released new video footage of what is said to show American Airlines flight 77 slamming into the Pentagon in Washington DC, on September 11, 2001. It is our understanding that the U.S. Department of Justice has yet to respond to an October 24, 2005 appeal, filed under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), for 85 videotapes of the September 11, 2001 crash of Flight 77 into the Pentagon.

It is curious that at the Dept. of Defense News Briefing, held approximately 24 hours after American Airlines Flight 77 departing from Dulles airport is said to have crashed into the Pentagon, the words "American Airlines," "Flight 77," "Boeing," "Dulles," and "passengers" were not even mentioned.

So what does this new video prove? Read our analysis, view videos of the collapse of World Trade Center Building No. 7, and decide for yourself.

World leaders suspect the Bush administration

Several world leaders "suspect the Bush administration of involvement in the 911 attacks," writes Wayne Madsen—a Washington, DC-based investigative journalist. These include German Science and Technology Minister Andreas Von Bulow, British Environment Minister Michael Meacher, and Belgian European Parliament Member Paul Lannoye.

"In recent months," writes Madsen, "the former Cabinet ministers have been joined in their skepticism about the 'official' version of the 911 events by Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez and Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad."

United 93

"A persuasively narrated, scrupulously tasteful re-creation of the downing of the fourth and final plane hijacked by Islamist terrorists on Sept. 11," writes Manohla Dargis of the New York Times.

On September 18, according to CNN, "FBI Director Robert Mueller said a preliminary investigation indicated 18 hijackers were on the four planes," and "U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell named suspected terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden as one of the primary suspects in the hijackings and crashes."

But we're not persuaded. Here's a few reasons why:
- Why are the alleged hijackers' names not on the passenger lists released by the Associated Press on September 17, 2001?
- Why were several of the alleged hijackers reported to be alive by BBC News on September 23, 2001?

And in a speech at the prestigious Commonwealth Club of California on April 19, 2002, Mueller IIIadmitted: "In our investigation, we have not uncovered a single piece of paper—either here in the United States, or in the treasure trove of information that has turned up in Afghanistan and elsewhere—that mentioned any aspect of the September 11 plot."

Moussaoui trial a 'charade'

The trial holding Zacarias Moussaoui responsible for the horrors of 9/11 has all the marks of a political charade, according to Scholars for 9/11 Truth, a society of experts devoted to exposing falsehoods and establishing truths about the events of September 11. "Even the most basic elements of due process have been violated," according to James H. Fetzer, its founder and co-chair, "by failing to prove that the accused had anything to do with 9/11. What we are seeing here tends to substantiate Charlie Sheen's allegations."

Cheney main 9/11 suspect says former Star Wars chief

Dr. Robert M. Bowman, retired Lt. Col., USAF, recipient of the Eisenhower Medal, the George F. Kennan Peace Prize, the President’s Medal of Veterans for Peace, the Society of Military Engineers Gold Medal, and dozens of other awards and honors, said during an interview with radio talk show host Alex Jones that Vice-President Richard Cheney is the prime suspect behind the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Dr. Bowman says that "the drills on the morning of 9/11 that simulated planes crashing into buildings on the east coast were used as a cover to dupe unwitting air defense personnel into not responding quickly enough to stop the attack."

Dr. Bowman has a Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering from Caltech, and is one of the foremost experts on U.S. National Security. Dr. Bowman worked secretly for the US government on the Star Wars project and was the first to coin that term in 1977.

Michael C. Ruppert, author of "Crossing the Rubicon," also names Mr. Cheney as the "the prime suspect in the mass murders of 9/11."

"The US government," reports Jones, "attempted to sabotage the trip by putting Rodriguez, who has been decorated at the White House itself, and Walter on a no fly list."

'Bin Laden tapes are phony'

The CIA verified an audiotape delivered to al-Jazeera in fall 2002 as authentic. The world's foremost voice identification experts in Switzerland reported that "the message was recorded by an impostor."

According to Dr. Kevin Barrett, an Islamologist and Arabist: "Every bin Laden message since then has been equally phony. They are released at moments when the Bush regime needs a boost and the American media go along with the fraud. Remember the bogus bin Laden tape that made headlines right before the 2004 presidential election? If you didn't figure out that it was a CIA-produced commercial for George Bush, I have some great bridges to sell you. Walter Cronkite, bless his heart, opined that Karl Rove was behind that tape."

Former Reagan official questions 9/11 report

Paul Craig Roberts, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration, questions "the glaring defects of the 9/11 Commission Report."

Mr. Roberts writes in CounterPunch: "There are not many editors eager for writers to explore the glaring defects of the 9/11 Commission Report. One would think that if the report could stand analysis, there would not be a taboo against calling attention to the inadequacy of its explanations. We know the government lied about Iraqi WMD, but we believe the government told the truth about 9/11."

Bin Laden video confession 'a fake'

Brigham Young University Professor Steven E. Jones says "A video tape purported to show bin Laden confessing to masterminding the attacks was a fake. Other tapes in which bin Laden denied involvement were more likely authentic."

Prof. Jones, a member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth—a group of academics who dispute the government's account of 9/11—was speaking to an overflow crowd on Wednesday at the Center for the Study of Ethics, Utah Valley State College.

Prof. Jones said "he suspects a thermite detonation from inside the building" caused the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7.

Revelations in the 9/11 oral histories

Following a Freedom of Information Act request, "12,000 pages of oral histories rendered in the voices of 503 firefighters, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians, were made public," and published by the New York Times. The oral histories include testimony such as:

Firefighter Richard Banaciski: "[T]here was just an explosion [in the south tower]. It seemed like on television [when] they blow up these buildings. It seemed like it was going all the way around like a belt, all these explosions."

Assistant Fire Commissioner Stephen Gregory: "I saw a flash flash flash [at] the lower level of the building. You know like when they demolish a building?"

Paramedic Daniel Rivera: "[I]t was [like a] professional demolition where they set the charges on certain floors and then you hear 'Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop'."

Dr. David Ray Griffin examines these oral histories, and other less widely known reports, in an article published by the 911Truth.org. He asks, "why did we have to wait for this court-ordered release to learn about these testimonies? Should not they have been discussed in "The 9/11 Commission Report," which was issued over a year earlier?"

Dr. Griffin is the author of "The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions." He alleges there are over 100 lies in the The 9/11 Commission Report.

Judge orders U.S. to give up pre-9/11 documents

U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema has ordered government lawyers to give defense lawyers documents describing what the government knew about the 9/11 conspiracy prior to September 11, 2001.

Lawyers for Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person charged by the U.S. in the 9/11 conspiracy, allege that the government knew more about the conspiracy than did the defendant.

FOIA request for videotapes of 9/11 Pentagon crash stalled

The U.S. Department of Justice has yet to respond to an October 24, 2005 appeal, filed under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), for 85 videotapes of the September 11, 2001 crash of Flight 77 into the Pentagon.

The existence of the videotapes “in the possession of the FBI [was] described in the declaration of Special Agent (“SA”) Jacqueline Maguire dated September 7, 2005, in the lawsuit captioned Bingham v. United States Department of Justice,” according to Scott A. Hodes, Attorney at Law.

Agent Maguire states that one videotape from a Pentagon security camera shows Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon. This videotape would be used as evidence in the case U.S. v. Zacarias Moussaoui.

The original FOIA Request No. 1030438-000 to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, filed on behalf of Scott Bingham, was denied on October 20, 2005.

Many still question what really happened at the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. These videotapes may answer their questions.
