9.11 investigation | imperialism & war


Cheney LIED on camera of his surprise the WTC buildings had been attacked. Cheney failed to tell us (of the amazing "coincidence") that on the morning of 9/11 - at the same time as the REAL 9/11 attacks - Cheney was personally directing "War Games" DRILLS with multiple imaginary "hijacked airliners" attacking buildings on the east coast! Our Air Defenses became confused by as many as 22 imaginary (and real) hijacked aircraft!
In his review of the Tuesday night June 20th, PBS "Frontline" DARK SIDE 90-minute exposé, Seattle Times staff reporter Mark Rahner, wrote: "FRONTLINE" DOCUMENTARY MAKES CASE THAT CHENEY USED 9/11 TO GO TO WAR.

Unlike Rahner's promising headline, the documentary turned out to be just a carefully edited, PSUEDO - exposure, with "Frontline" allowing several LIES about the 9/11 attack and the war on Iraq, to remain unchallenged!

In May of 2001, by presidential order, Cheney was handed (by Bush) direct control of all war game and drill operations. This meant he was solely in charge of the overlapping NORAD drills and wargames on the morning of 9/11, that prevented Standard Operating Procedure from being implemented, and any of the hijacked planes being intercepted.

On the morning of 9/11, Cheney was controlling "War Games" DRILLS with multiple imaginary "hijacked airliners" attacking buildings on the east coast!

The drill scenario also explains a comment made by air traffic control personnel which was featured in a July 2004 BBC television report. The controller is told that a hijacked airliner is heading for New York and responds by saying, "is this real world or an exercise?"

Cheney SHOULD have been publicly revealed as an incredibly incompetent amateur "General" - or suspected of a more sinister role in the events of 9/11!

At bottom, read further details in Secretary of Transportation NORMAN MINETA'S startling testimony to the 9/11 Commission (not reported to the American people), about Cheney's actions and inactions on the morning of 9/11. If you're impatient, open these URLS now...

"FRONTLINE" TOTALLY FAILED to even mention the two separate UN weapons inspection teams led by SCOTT RITTER (1991-1998) and HANS BLIX (2002-2003) - that found there were NO WMD REMAINING IN IRAQ!

All our cooperating (and informed, even involved) American Intelligence people were fully aware that all or nearly all of Iraq's UNCONVENTIONAL weapons, materials and production facilities, had been destroyed since 1991, anything remaining were verified as destroyed by Ritter's UN teams through 1998. Surely, interviewed retired "Terrorism" experts Scheurer and Clarke also were aware of the above, but "strangely" failed to mention the Ritter and Blix teams findings on the "Frontline" report!

Aside from Kay (who was not asked on camera) most of the other former intelligence people interviewed by "Frontline" strangely seemed to be "pretending" the many years of Ritter and Blix team inspections never happened! Or they chose to totally ignore the Ritter/Blix findings that there were NO REMAINING WMD IN IRAQ!

Just as Clinton (pressured by Israel to renew bombing of Iraq in 1998, which he obeyed) ignored the Ritter teams verification of NO remaining WMD in Iraq by 1998 - Bush's people (supported by an misinformed majority in Congress) also ignored Ritter! Recall that the Iraqis had permitted Blix' 2002 - 2003 UN inspection teams to search ANYWHERE they wanted. Large Iraqi (conventional) missiles with a range just a little beyond a certain 300 mile+ UN prohibition, were cooperatively brought forward by the Iraqis and most destroyed under the watchful eyes of Blix' inspectors (just prior to Bush's invasion).

Apparently Hans Blix was only weeks away from VERIFYING there were NO WMD remaining in Iraq! No need for Iraq to be invaded to be "disarmed."

Impatient (or terrified the final Blix UN report made public would undermine their WMD excuse to attack Iraq?) Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld (aided by a complicit majority in Congress and obedient media) totally ignored Blix' nearly completed search - and quickly launched the General Tommy Franks' designed, merciless "Shock and Awe" attack (openly intended to "TERRORIZE" all Iraqis into swift surrender).

Some researchers contend possibly 250,000 Iraqi civilians have died so far from our bombs, missiles and bullets, half of them women and children. All "accidental" collateral damage.

We should never forget THE PRIMARY REASON Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld (and Blair) told us "justified" invading Iraq... It was to FIND and REMOVE what they alleged was a vast "hidden" stockpile of "terrifying" Iraqi WMD, "imminently" threatening to America, Britain - and especially to "tiny" ISRAEL! It was a lie, and they KNEW it was lie!

that (AFTER our military conquest of Iraq) two separate Bush appointed large WMD search teams led by Kay and Deulfer, CONFIRMED that the findings of the (Bush ignored) Ritter and Blix UN teams had been accurate - that most of Iraq's WMD had been destroyed back in 1991! Clearly, there were no Iraqi WMDS to "remove." NO JUSTIFICATION to attack and occupy Iraq!
interviewed Colonel Wilkerson, Colin Powell's Chief of Staff, to repeat on air his recent public admission (earlier ignored by America's major media)...
Excerpt only: "I participated in a hoax on the American people, the international community, and the United Nations Security Council," says Wilkerson, who helped prepare (Colin Powell's) UN address.
• ABOUT THE 9/11 ATTACK, "FRONTLINE" ALSO FAILED TO REPORT that later in September, 2001, SEVEN of the (still today FBI accused) "dead" 19 Islamic Hijackers were found alive and well by British newspapers!

The astounding news about the "SEVEN ALIVE HIJACKERS" was widely reported in Britain and Europe (but NOT in our American media). Because those Seven men had not been on the 9/11 planes, our government's entire "19 hijackers" tale should be suspect.

The entire list of alleged "19 hijackers" supposedly led by Atta, may be a "false flag" invention.

Read the following...


TO SEN. KYL: WHEN WILL PRETENSE ABOUT THE 19 HIJACKERS CEASE? (Email sent in early 2002 to Kyl and McCain)

The false (by at least 7) list of (Osama's) alleged "19 Muslim Hijackers" was quickly exploited by Bush and Blair to "justify" their mutually declared, never-to-end, GLOBAL "War on Terror" (in practice, the start of their exclusive "Wars on Muslims").

To "punish" GUILTY Osama Bin Laden and ("posthumously") his personally trained "19 (dead) Hijackers," along with Osama's foolish Taliban protectors, 9/11 avengers Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld launched REVENGE attacks on Afghanistan, followed by Iraq. (But apparently the FBI does not yet agree with the President's 2001 onward, belief in Osama's GUILT for 9/11? Check the following.)

the following astounding FBI admission -
- (FBI's Rex Tomb, answering why the FBI poster does not accuse Bin Laden for 9/11) June 8, 2006
that days after the 9/11 attacks, Lyndon LaRouche was among the first to contend that 9/11 was NOT a "TERRORIST" attack from OUTSIDE America - but (possibly using Remotely Controlled aircraft?) a carefully staged criminal act of TREASON from INSIDE America by still unidentified "rogue" elements high up in our government, military and Intelligence - attempting to so terrify us all, the American people and Congress would accept a "protective" Martial Law Dictatorship in America - with the Traitors in control!
What is the one powerful "Driving Force" (unmentioned by "Frontline") that most strongly influences Cheney, Rumsfeld and Bush? Zionist Israel!

• "FRONTLINE" TOTALLY FAILED TO MENTION THE ROLE OF ISRAEL - whose government and its influential American "Israel Lobby" heavily pressured Bush and Congress to attack Iraq!

Nor did "Frontline" mention the "25 (Israel-First) Neoconservatives" who planned attacking Iraq a decade back, some Bush's closest advisors, who persuaded him to attack... HAARETZ article by Ari Shavit, 05/04/2003...
Excerpt only... The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish, who are pushing President Bush to change the course of history.
"(General) Zinni said it was "the worst-kept secret in Washington" that a group of neoconservative thinkers had pushed for invading Iraq in order to make the Middle East more democratic — and safer for Israel." - on CBS 60-Minutes, May 21, 2004...  http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/05/21/60minutes/printable618896.shtml

Following are details of Norman Minetta's 9/11 testimony mentioned at top...
According to the testimony of Secretary of Transportation NORMAN MINETA to the Bush Administration's (handpicked) 911 Commission - Cheney (apparently) REFUSED to change the "standing orders" that prevented our interceptors from shooting down the hijacked airliner approaching the Pentagon!

9/11 CONTRIVED! by Dr. Stan Monteith

(The full text of Mineta's testimony at CooperativeResearch.org Mineta's quotes taken from official testimony to the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States 9-11Commission.gov)
Excerpts only...
(Mineta told the Commission):
"When I got to the White House, it was being evacuated. . . . Then the Secret Service escorted me down to the Presidential Emergency Operations Center, otherwise known as the PEOC. . . . We did not know how many more attacks might be in progress. . . .."

(Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta was in the Presidential Emergency Operating Center with Vice President Cheney as Flight 77 approached Washington, D.C.)

Secretary Mineta testified:
"During the time that the airplane was coming in to the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the Vice President, "The plane is 50 miles out." "The plane is 30 miles out." And when it got down to "the plane is 10 miles out," the young man also said to the Vice President, "Do the orders still stand?" And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and said, "Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?"
(Mineta): "Well at the time, I didn't know what all of that meant. And. . . ." 911 Commission Testimony, May 23, 2003

The morning of 911, Cheney (and General Myers) ran several computer practice drills (involving NORAD and other Air Defenses) simulating "imaginary" hijacked airliners crashing into East Coast buildings, before (and during) the REAL 911 attacks!
Cheney's and Myers "war games" practice drills (confusing our Air Defenses with at least 22 real and imaginary "hijacked aircraft") certainly was just an amazing "coincidence" (as accepted by the 911 Commission) - because otherwise, it suggests that clever Bin Laden in his cave and his alleged "confessed 911 mastermind" Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, somehow learned in advance (from spies?) about the U.S. 911 practice drills and timed their REAL hijacking attacks simultaneously to match Cheney's practice drills!

This is out and out lying. The amount of bullshit you squeezed out of there is amazing. Any half-informed person at Frontline should have been aware of at least a few of the lies.
