Revisiting 9-11 Series #4: The United States of Mass Denial


Hello everyone

Except for this introduction, this compilation below is the same I sent last night to my Media list (4,385 mainstream journalists and news media from around the world). Most of this compilation deals with some amazing evidence that there is a huge cover up still going on about 9-11 and those who masterminded it. I know most media shy away from covering this topic but with the attempt in the U.S. Senate to "investigate" this tragedy, I think it is worth another shot...

Just as for the Kennedy assassination whose true culprits were never brought to face justice, it is unlikely that the powerful international elite band of criminals who are now trying their best to establish their global military hegemony through the successive U.S. governments will ever face trial for their ongoing murderous deeds.

This is no time to be in a state of mass denial about what is really going on...

Better to be in a state of mass harmonization with the emerging New Era that will soon help sweep the world clean of the dark influence of some terribly lost souls and bring Peace on Earth.

"The biggest difference between the Russians and Americans was that Russians recognized that "the Party Line" was propaganda from the ruling elite, and Americans who receive "the Mainstream Press" fail to recognize it as "propaganda from the ruling elite" and mistake it for "reality."

"You know, you cannot exercise your powers to the point of humiliation for others. That is what the Western world -- not only the Americans, the Western world -- has to realize. Because they (the have-nots) are human beings too. There are long-term consequences if you don't look hard at the reality in 10 or 20 (or) 30 years from now. And I do think the Western world is getting too rich in relation to the poor world and necessarily, you know, we're looked upon as being arrogant, self-satisfied greedy and with no limits. And Sept. 11 is an occasion for me to realize it even more."

Open Letter To World Trade Center Investigators

By Christopher Bollyn

American Free Press

8-24-2

The evidence is now compelling - the twin towers were BLOWN off their feet. The plane crashes and fires were but secondary distractions to the main event.

The towers were literally "blasted" off their footings at the beginning, and during the first phase, of their respective collapses.

The fact that the towers were seen "jumping" immediately before the collapse is documented on film by a helicopter camera that witnessed that event.

Massive explosions deep in the basements of the WTC towers clearly lifted - and dropped - the massive structures from their bases 70 feet below the surface.
The basement explosions that detached the central support columns from the bed rock, and dropped the towers, left extremely hot pools of molten steel (1535+ degrees Celsius), which persisted for days in the lowest basements (-7 level), and clear seismic tracks - that have yet to be explained.

However, the seismic evidence is quite clear: There were massive (and unexplained) releases of energy causing 2.1 and 2.3 magnitude earthquakes before ANY debris even hit the ground.

Furthermore, seismologists agree that the falling rubble would only cause minimal seismic disturbances, which it what the seismic record clearly shows it did. (e.g. Columbia University's Arthur Lerner-Lam's reports)

The largest blasts occurred during the first 5 seconds of the collapses - before any significant amount of debris even hit the ground.

As a matter of fact the impact of the "rubble" (we can no longer speak of large pieces) caused only relatively minor seismic shock wave signatures compared to what ROCKED the EARTH (2.1 and 2.3 earthquakes) at the towers' base from the beginning of the collapse until about 5 seconds into the 8 and 10 second collapses.

The massive seismic wave "spike", which occurred at about 4-5 seconds into the 8-second collapse of the North Tower was MANY times larger than the waves that marked the moment of impact when the "rubble" finally hit the ground.

DROP THE COVER-UP

Investigators: The cat is out of the bag. The game is up.

The evidence is now overwhelming and compelling. Scientists who continue to obfuscate and refuse to investigate the clear evidence of explosions in the towers will undoubtedly be considered by honest investigators, the public, and history, to be part of the cover-up. The steel evidence MUST be tested for signs of "twinning", the tracks left in steel of exposure to high-energy explosions. All steel from the basements must be tested for such twinning as well as radioactivity.

I, for one, would not want to be in the position of being involved in the criminal cover-up of this horrendous mass murder.

Those investigators who participate in the cover-up, whether actively or passively, whether by action or inaction, should expect to find themselves branded as quislings, of both their nation and their science.

The only sure path is to pursue the truth, wherever it may lead.

New Seismic Data Refutes Official WTC Explanation
By Christopher Bollyn
Exclusive to American Free Press
9-5-2

Two unexplained "spikes" in the seismic record from Sept. 11 indicate huge bursts of energy shook the ground beneath the World Trade Center's twin towers immediately prior to the collapse. American Free Press has learned of pools of "molten steel" found at the base of the collapsed twin towers weeks after the collapse. Although the energy source for these incredibly hot areas has yet to be explained, New York seismometers recorded huge bursts of energy, which caused unexplained seismic "spikes" at the beginning of each collapse.

These spikes suggest that massive underground explosions may have literally knocked the towers off their foundations, causing them to collapse.

In the basements of the collapsed towers, where the 47 central support columns connected with the bedrock, hot spots of "literally molten steel" were discovered more than a month after the collapse. Such persistent and intense residual heat, 70 feet below the surface, in an oxygen starved environment, could explain how these crucial structural supports failed.

Peter Tully, president of Tully Construction of Flushing, N.Y., told AFP that he saw pools of "literally molten steel" at the World Trade Center.

Tully was contracted after the Sept. 11 tragedy to remove the debris from the site.

Tully called Mark Loizeaux, president of Controlled Demolition, Inc. (CDI) of Phoenix, Md., for consultation about removing the debris. CDI calls itself "the innovator and global leader in the controlled demolition and implosion of structures."

Loizeaux, who cleaned up the bombed Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, arrived at the WTC site two days later and wrote the clean-up plan for the entire operation.

AFP asked Loizeaux about the report of molten steel on the site.

"Yes," he said, "hot spots of molten steel in the basements."

These incredibly hot areas were found "at the bottoms of the elevator shafts of the main towers, down seven [basement] levels," Loizeaux said.

The molten steel was found "three, four, and five weeks later, when the rubble was being removed," Loizeaux said. He said molten steel was also found at 7 WTC, which collapsed mysteriously in the late afternoon.

Construction steel has an extremely high melting point of about 2,800 degrees Fahrenheit.

Asked what could have caused such extreme heat, Tully said, "Think of the jet fuel."

Loizeaux told AFP that the steel-melting fires were fueled by "paper, carpet and other combustibles packed down the elevator shafts by the tower floors as they 'pancaked' into the basement."

However, some independent investigators dispute this claim, saying kerosene-based jet fuel, paper, or the other combustibles normally found in the towers, cannot generate the heat required to melt steel, especially in an oxygen-poor environment like a deep basement.

Eric Hufschmid, author of a book about the WTC collapse, Painful Questions,* told AFP that due to the lack of oxygen, paper and other combustibles packed down at the bottom of elevator shafts would probably be "a smoky smoldering pile."

Experts disagree that jet-fuel or paper could generate such heat.

This is impossible, they say, because the maximum temperature that can be reached by hydrocarbons like jet-fuel burning in air is 1,520 degrees F. Because the WTC fires were fuel rich, as evidenced by the thick black smoke, it is argued that they did not reach this upper limit.

The hottest spots at the surface of the rubble, where abundant oxygen was available, were much cooler than the molten steel found in the basements.

Five days after the collapse, on Sept. 16, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) used an Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) to locate and measure the site's hot spots.

Dozens of hot spots were mapped, the hottest being in the east corner of the South Tower where a temperature of 1,377 degrees F was recorded.

This is, however, less than half as hot at the molten steel in the basement.

The foundations of the twin towers were 70 feet deep. At that level, 47 huge box columns, connected to the bedrock, supported the entire gravity load of the structures. The steel walls of these lower box columns were four inches thick.

Videos of the North Tower collapse show its communication mast falling first, indicating that the central support columns must have failed at the very beginning of the collapse. Loizeaux told AFP, "Everything went simultaneously."

"At 10:29 the entire top section of the North Tower had been severed from the base and began falling down," Hufschmid writes. "If the first event was the falling of a floor, how did that progress to the severing of hundreds of columns?"

Asked if the vertical support columns gave way before the connections between the floors and the columns, Ron Hamburger, a structural engineer with the FEMA assessment team said, "That's the $64,000 question."

Loizeaux said, "If I were to bring the towers down, I would put explosives in the basement to get the weight of the building to help collapse the structure."

SEISMIC 'SPIKES'

Seismographs at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, N.Y., 21 miles north of the WTC, recorded strange seismic activity on Sept. 11 that has still not been explained.

While the aircraft crashes caused minimal earth shaking, significant earthquakes with unusual spikes occurred at the beginning of each collapse.

The Palisades seismic data recorded a 2.1 magnitude earthquake during the 10-second collapse of the South Tower at 9:59:04 and a 2.3 quake during the 8-second collapse of the North Tower at 10:28:31.

However, the Palisades seismic record shows that-as the collapses began-a huge seismic "spike" marked the moment the greatest energy went into the ground. The strongest jolts were all registered at the beginning of the collapses, well before the falling debris struck the Earth.

These unexplained "spikes" in the seismic data lend credence to the theory that massive explosions at the base of the towers caused the collapses.

A "sharp spike of short duration" is how seismologist Thorne Lay of University of California at Santa Cruz told AFP an underground nuclear explosion appears on a seismograph.

The two unexplained spikes are more than 20 times the amplitude of the other seismic waves associated with the collapses and occurred in the East-West seismic recording as the buildings began to fall.

Experts cannot explain why the seismic waves peaked before the towers actually hit the ground.

Asked about these spikes, seismologist Arthur Lerner-Lam, director of Columbia University's Center for Hazards and Risk Research told AFP, "This is an element of current research and discussion. It is still being investigated."

Lerner-Lam told AFP that a 10-fold increase in wave amplitude indicates a 100-fold increase in energy released. These "short-period surface waves," reflect "the interaction between the ground and the building foundation," according to a report from Columbia Earth Institute.

"The seismic effects of the collapses are comparable to the explosions at a gasoline tank farm near Newark on Jan. 7, 1983," the Palisades Seismology Group reported on Sept. 14, 2001.

One of the seismologists, Won-Young Kim, told AFP that the Palisades seismographs register daily underground explosions from a quarry 20 miles away.

These blasts are caused by 80,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate and cause local earthquakes between Magnitude 1 and 2. Kim said the 1993 truck-bomb at the WTC did not register on the seismographs because it was "not coupled" to the ground.

"Only a small fraction of the energy from the collapsing towers was converted into ground motion," Lerner-Lam said. "The ground shaking that resulted from the collapse of the towers was extremely small."

Last November, Lerner-Lam said: "During the collapse, most of the energy of the falling debris was absorbed by the towers and the neighboring structures, converting them into rubble and dust or causing other damage-but not causing significant ground shaking."

Evidently, the energy source that shook the ground beneath the towers was many times more powerful than the total potential energy released by the falling mass of the towers. The question is: What was that energy source?

The War on Freedom

Foreword: a Synopsis

In The War on Freedom, brilliant British scholar Nafeez M. Ahmed writes with cool, factual understatement a story that begs comprehension: compelling evidence that the U.S. government instigates terrorism as the perfect pretext to justify an aggressive foreign policy—up to and including the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. Astonishing as his thesis may seem, the thoughtful reader will find that it explains many obvious puzzles:

- How could our intelligence services fail to thwart such an ambitious project as 9/11?

- Why did our government immediately point the finger at Bin Laden, yet refuse to release the evidence? Were they loath to reveal their complicity, if they had been monitoring the ‘Boeing Bombing’ plot all along, and let it happen?

- Why did the White House ram through legal measures immediately after the attacks that essentially repeal the Bill of Rights and the Freedom of Information Act?

Ahmed’s extensive research also brings to light some less well-known puzzles. Isn’t it strange that:

- An investment from the bin Laden family started George Bush Jr. in business, and the war in Afghanistan will make the Bush family richer. -The activities of a former U.S. Army Sergeant who trained Al-Qaeda and participated in the Embassy bombings suggest that the U.S. continues to protect bin Laden as a strategic asset.

- Members of Al-Qaeda were trained in terrorism by the CIA in the USA, and the hijackers themselves were trained by the U.S. military.

- The U.S. financially supported the Pakistani secret services, which funded presumed hijacker Mohammed Atta.

- A crescendo of warnings from intelligence services around the world in early September were selectively ignored, while high-level orders were issued to block investigations of suspected terrorists linked to Bin Laden.

- Three FBI officers testified that they had known the names of the hijackers and the date of the planned attack weeks before it happened, but were muzzled by superiors under threat of prosecution; their counsel was the U.S. Congress’ chief prosecutor in the Clinton impeachment case.

- Standard operating procedure is for Air Force fighters to intercept hijacked planes immediately, but this was not done until it was all over on September 11, an hour and a half after the World Trade Center was hit.

- Intelligence experts deride the possibility that Bin Laden could have carried out such sophisticated, precise attacks without the support of a state-run intelligence organization.

Bin Laden got away, and the war on him remains an open-ended campaign, justifying any presidential policy, from attacking Iraq to plundering Social Security.

Loyal, law-abiding American readers may find all this too difficult to believe. We are taught certain civic values, and we believe our democratically elected government upholds them. Yet, even General Dwight D. Eisenhower warned us against the military-industrial complex...

How and why could the American presidency in effect wreak terror on its own citizens? The WTC attack, widely considered epoch-making, was certainly an immense opener for the war and oil lobbies, and for the projection of naked power. Ahmed unveils the linkages between the Bush, Cheney, Saudi, and Iraqi oil fortunes, as well as the shared anti-Soviet geopolitics of the CIA and the Islamic mujahideen in Central Asia.

How much of U.S. history and foreign policy has been made by manufacturing a pretext to attack a weaker enemy? Ahmed answers the question here in reference to the Afghan war, as he has earlier in a series of brilliant articles on U.S. intervention in Latin America and other regions (see http://nafeez.mediamonitors.net)

I am not an historian by trade, but I remember not only the Alamo, but the Maine, which we found out 100 years later the Spanish didn’t blow up; our intercession in WWI, from which Europe never recovered; and how FDR invited the Japanese to demolish our navy at Pearl Harbor. Isn’t it time to investigate this subversive government within a government, the war party with its ruthless secret services?

People around the world are saying they like America and Americans— it’s our government they can’t stand. Yet it is our civic responsibility to keep an eye on it, and not hide our heads in the sand of so-called patriotism. God willing, Ahmed’s call for an investigation will be heard and the evidence he has so diligently gathered will be examined. If his thesis is proved right, then the September 11 attacks will truly be epoch-making for freedom and democracy.

HERE IS AN EXCERPT FROM THE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY OF THIS BOOK

(...) In the aftermath of 11th September, the Bush administration embarked on a devastating bombing campaign in Afghanistan, killing up to 5,000 Afghan civilians—almost double the number of civilians killed in the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks. This massive bombardment of the country resulted in the destruction of the Taliban regime, making way for the installation of a new, interim government.

The new regime effectively constituted a return to the pre-Taliban era, when Northern Alliance factions ruled most of Afghanistan, brutalising and repressing the civilian population in the same manner as the Taliban. Now, however, Northern Alliance warlords have been bound by U.S.-UN brokered agreements designed to ensure the minimisation of civil war breaking out between rival warlords, the idea being to create the regional stability essential to lending an appropriate degree of security for proposed pipelines to Caspian oil and gas. The rights and wishes of the Afghan people, meanwhile, have been ignored.

Subsequently, on the pretext of entering into a new “war on terror,” the Bush administration successfully secured unlimited war powers, free from Congressional accountability. This has established an open-ended militarisation of foreign policy in which any country can be targeted at will on the pretext of harbouring terrorists.

In the U.S., this has been accompanied by unprecedented curbs on civil liberties and basic human rights, the crushing of domestic dissent, and the criminalisation of legitimate protest. Many authoritative commentators have described these domestic measures as moves toward the establishment of an American police state. The combination of militarisation abroad and repression at home has granted the Bush administration a free hand to pursue its strategic and economic interests, consolidating a permanent military presence in Afghanistan and Central Asia, and moving swiftly to establish lucrative pipeline deals to secure access to regional resources and energy deposits. It has allowed the Bush administration to challenge its principal rivals—Europe, China and Russia—in the pursuit of control of Central Asia, with the final objective of consolidating U.S. hegemony over the entirety of Eurasia, thus moving toward the establishment of unrivalled global hegemony.

Prior to 11th September, all of this was inconceivable. The tragic catastrophe of 11th September, which was apparently permitted to occur by the Bush administration—and further effectively pushed forward by the administration through its ongoing support of key allies in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan who support bin Laden and Al-Qaeda—allowed the U.S. to expand, consolidate and empower its hegemony, both at home and abroad, to an unprecedented level.

In the epilogue, John Leonard gives a historical perspective on the Federal executive’s repeated, clandestine use of staged provocations to get America into foreign wars, and presents published evidence pointing to the involvement of Mossad, Israeli military intelligence, in September 11.

Iraq: "Merely a first step?"

By Carla Binion

Sep 11, 2002

The Boston Globe reports that the Bush administration war hawks have for many years planned to "reshape" the Middle East. Iraq is "merely a first step." "After an ouster of Hussein," according to the Globe, "the United States will have more leverage to act against Syria and Iran." As the Globe article makes clear, oil and domination of the region are primary concerns, not any "threat" from Saddam Hussein. Some of the hawks claim they want to create "democracy" in the region, but they have lied about that concern in the past. According to the Globe article, "Jessica T. Mathews, president of Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a Washington policy group, said that installing a democracy in Iraq, much less the rest of the Middle East would be extraordinarily difficult, if not out of the question. She contended that change in Iraq is more akin to building a wall brick by brick and will require the support of allies." Matthews said, ''The argument we would be starting a democratic wave in Iraq is pure blowing smoke....You have 22 Arab governments and not one has made any progress toward democracy, not one." Here is what this information means:

* The Bush administration is lying to the American people, to Congress, to the UN and to the rest of the world about its real motives for attacking Iraq.

* The real intention of the Bush administration hawks is to keep this country at war for many years, attacking first Iraq and then a number of other nations - primarily for domination of the region and control of the region's oil.

* The Bush war hawks have no concern for the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of human lives these wars will cost. They don't care that many American soldiers will die for oil, and they don't mind lying to those soldiers in order to recruit them.

* The Bush administration will squander billions of dollars on their misbegotten wars - money that could instead be spent on a national health care system or other human needs.

* The war hawks' plans amount to premeditated, cold-blooded murder of many thousands of innocent Iraqis and American soldiers, and possibly the eventual murder of innocent Syrians, Iranians and others.

* The Bush hawks' plans will likely cause large numbers of potential terrorists to retaliate and possibly harm innocent Americans.

* The world should realize this: If the Bush war hawks go ahead with their plans to attack Iraq and other nations for the reasons detailed in the Boston Globe article, the Bush administration will be committing acts of terrorism every bit as evil and of greater proportions than the terrorist acts committed on September 11.

Contact members of Congress. Protest. Don't let this be done in your name.
