Rumsfeld said a missile hit the Pentagon.

Missile, no airliner.

Talk about freudian slip ;D
"Q: This is a question that's been asked by many Americans, but especially by the widows of September 11th. How were we so asleep at the switch? How did a war targeting civilians arrive on our homeland with seemingly no warning?"

Rumsfeld: "... It is a truth that a terrorist can attack any time, any place, using any technique and it's physically impossible to defend at every time and every place against every conceivable technique. Here we're talking about plastic knives and using an American Airlines flight filed with our citizens, and the missile to damage this building and similar (inaudible) that damaged the World Trade Center. The only way to deal with this problem is by taking the battle to the terrorists, wherever they are, and dealing with them."

this is ridiculous 27.Jan.2003 20:47


He said the plane was used AS a missile.

pardon the splitting of hairs, but... 27.Jan.2003 21:45

the real Agent Orange

um, no, this is what he SAID:

"...American Airlines flight filed with our citizens, and the missile to damage this building and similar (inaudible) that damaged the World Trade Center."

I believe you MEAN that Rummy MEANT "AS a missle".

It's still open to debate whether you take a dismissive stance or not.

and the source for this tidbit would be PARADE magazine and I saw it first on www.thememoryhole.com for those interested in a GREAT website edited by Russ Kick who has also just edited two anthologies of www.disinfo.com articles entitled, appropriately enough, YOU ARE BEING LIED TO and EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS WRONG.

You ridiculous conspiracy theorists! The Pentagon was hit by a missile, huh?

And that's why there were all those human remains? And all those airplane parts? And a big fire from the jet fuel? (clue: a missile warhead doesn't produce that kind of fire - it can't. It isn't big enough to hold that much flammable liquid.)

You guys live on pure spite. If Bush said the Earth was round, you'd immediately KNOW that the Earth was flat, just like your electroencephalogram traces.

What a bunch of mindless bozos...

Donald Rumsfeld: "..your brain begins to connect things..."

yeah, like how ABCs national news broadcast tonight was focused on the oil issue of the pretty much imminent war. the oil markets and prices were discussed and the effects on the "price at the pump" was talked about, with emphasis placed on the fact that while the war is on, prices go up but *if* the US can "secure" the source of oil that is 20% of its imported supply, then prices will go down;

and how the term "resistance" was used yet again with regards to the planned use of force in Iraq and how some Democrats might make a stink about it, and how more citizens are becoming aware of the issue especially of the neglected one like the US economy (later in the b'cast it is reported that the Turkey is allowing the US to use land for military purposes and will be receiving billions for it). one economist that was interviewed suggests somewhat chipperly is that due to the poor economy "americans will not be going to the malls and spending a lot of money, but they will be cheering on the armed forces in Iraq" (paraphrase);

on "Super Bowl Sunday" (where 2 teams representing thieves of the high seas, Bucanneers and Raiders), NBC Channel 8 at 3:30pm was airing women's mogul skiing. there was a segment interview with skier Shannon Barkhe that talked about how her performance was enhanced w/ the help of a HYPNOTIST.as the interviewer and Shannon talked about her mental and physical training, the interview was interlaced with the creepy voice and image of the placidly gleeful hypnotist guy who when they cut to him audibly or visually would say a eerily spoken phrase like "they become like a machine" or "the subconscious mind is a machine". basically they wanted her to get down the hill like a robot.

as the interview ended, there was a strange sound effect that they played; somewhat "dissonant" and it creeped me the fuch out; i think i mentioned a visual effect once that sort of morphed the image in a twisting "dimensional" way, well this was the sonic version of that effect. sort of a light nausea but thankfully i didn't have super stereo or HDTV...

when they cut back to the action, Shannon ended up losing her race (looks like her "programming" didn't take);

more "sports riots", dual chemtrail spraying in the middle of last week at about 5pm with planes heading in a NWerly direction...

is there something here for my brain to connect? how many people are even able to use their brains after those *funny* funny superbowl commercials? were the commercials funny for a reason?

(the news): "Coming up, the showdown with Saddam is heating up..."

you hear that "xxx", it's getting hot in here, so take off all your clothes :)


Super Bowl propaganda (like the Cadillac commercial that states "resistance is futile" and the "War on Drugs" commercials)

Terry Tate Reebok commercial

Wow. 27.Jan.2003 22:14

Agent Orange

I was only pointing out the misquoting of the US Secretary of Defense. The original poster was merely commenting on a strange statement made by a public official.

Be wary of those who insist that the facts surrounding 9/11 or any signifigant event are non-debatable. These people are of the "Just Say No" (to thinking for yourself) type that cannot tolerate alternative explanations to the official story.

xxx acts as if asking a stupid question was the worst thing that could ever happen.

The Real Question is 27.Jan.2003 23:04


What did Herr Rumsfeld say when the transcript says "inaudible":

"Here we're talking about plastic knives and using an American Airlines flight filed with our citizens, and the missile to damage this building and similar (inaudible) that damaged the World Trade Center."

Similar what "that damaged the World Trade Center"? Similar missiles? Similar Airliners guided by US military Global Hawk technology? Similar bombs pre-planted in the World Trade Center and Pentagon that were designed to go off and make it look like an exploding airliner. What?

this is RIDICULOUS! 28.Jan.2003 00:29



This reminds me 28.Jan.2003 06:41

The Patriot Guy

This reminds me of when FEMA let slip that they were showed up a day ahead of time and when W. said that he watched the first plane hit. For xxx's information, he said it twice.

Whatever hit the Pentagon, it was most certainly NOT an airplane. This site has many pictures so you can make up your own mind:


Wow 28.Jan.2003 14:15


eye opener. Thanks Gringo.

I have heard that a plane did not crash into the pentagon but I had not seen much evidence for it. This is fascinating and brings up even MOre questions that will probably NOT be answered in the *official* investigation.

I Predict that the official investigation will be like that of the Condon report on anomalous aircraft: A whitewash from the beginning.

to guy who calls people morons 30.Jan.2004 12:12


did i see the bodies? the plane parts? the fire? what are you smoking. there were no plane parts, remember? the heat was sufficient enough to melt an entire jetliner. whatever few parts there were covered from view before being taken away. you have been shown no evidence that a plane hit the building. did you see the picture of the clean hole the "plane" made immediately after impact? the popular picture showing more extensive damage was taken after the fire crews showed up and collapsed the floors above. the entry photo shows NO plane parts lying around. how a 200 plus foot wingspan can simply disappear is beyond me. i could go on but you obviously know nothing factual about the situation. you do know a good amount of what has been popularly assumed.

Lots of aircraft wreckage left in Pentagon 28.Mar.2004 17:14


I don't know where all these donkeys got the idea there was no aircraft wreckage left in the pentagon after 9/11. Probably something they heard a reporter say and assumed it was right

There was plenty if aircraft wreckage left. It can be seen here:
