Bush Talks About Explosives In Twin Towers

Bush actually said this.
 http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2006/09/20060915-2.html

"For example, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed described the design of planned attacks of buildings inside the U.S. and how operatives were directed to carry them out. That is valuable information for those of us who have the responsibility to protect the American people. He told us the operatives had been instructed to ensure that the explosives went off at a high -- a point that was high enough to prevent people trapped above from escaping."
*******************************************************************************************************

How many times have we heard the often repeated mantra that Arab hijackers attacked America
by flying jets into the WTC towers.

Now Bush is talking about how the terrorists had instructions on how to set up explosives in
buildings. The al Qaeda terrorists were busy planting explosives in the 2 towers?

Remember how other buildings have been brought down by controlled demolition.
Think back and remember how the two towers fell -- in controlled demolition fashion,
and WTC7 later.

People are well aware of what and who was really responsible for the murder of those people
in the twin towers.

People will find Bush's remarks as curious --- damn curious.
GW knows what is about to happen and is doing some pre-emptive spin... 24.Sep.2006 21:45

9/11 Toxic Dust Whistleblower Raided By SWAT Team

 http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2006/09/345987.shtml

[This is five paragraphs from the end of the article:]

"Numerous firemen were telling me that they heard numerous
secondary explosions all over the building - these guys
are seasoned firefighting professionals - a lot of them
have military backgrounds and they're not stupid."

McCormack said that around 75% of police, firemen and
rescue personnel that he had personally spoke with now
believe there is a cover-up pertaining to 9/11 and that
many had been threatened that "if they ever open their
mouth their pensions are at risk."

Just keep in mind that W is just the puppet on the strings of the industrial war complex that has been making tons of money from this long sought after war in Iraq. Please direct your anger in the correct direction. Cheney's Halliburton is a huge memeber of the industrial war complex that Eisenhower warned us of in the 50's.

So Marvin Bush hired al-Qaida folk and John O'Neill found out, eh? 25.Sep.2006 00:59

How the Bushies are going to deceive what they tried to weave is going to be curious indeed because wasn't Dubya's brother Marvin head of the security company overseeing the three buildings? Marvin would hire al-Qaida folk? Wow, what a scandal!! If so, that presents the Bushies with the real problem of explaining why John O'Neill was hired as security czar of Larry Silverstein's three buildings eight days before 9/11. Wasn't O'Neill bounced as the FBI's former deputy director because he kept warning the Bushies about al-Qaida's role in the USS Cole bombing? They'd have to say O'Neill spotted Marvin's people (posing as maintenance men or United Parcel guys hauling dollies of boxed "computers" around) carting in all that thermite/sulphur and tried to raise cain? Or that O'Neill carted it in and single-handedly planted it around those beams. Perhaps pushed the button to ignite it before leaving his 34th floor office in the North Tower??

They'd do far better to work on Silverstein sufficiently so he'd confess he honestly felt everyone was out of both towers when he ordered them pulled. This is the stuff of true Aristotelian tragedy: A good man making a monumental error of judgment. Think of what a film that ABC could make of this! Silverstein buys the complex a year before 9/11 and with the previous basement hit on one that required huge repair costs and, moreover, the risk of a jumbo jet hitting it by accident, he has maintenance crews plant thermite/sulphur around all those 31' beams ("just in case"). He knows such a hit would involve monstrously expensive repairs; rebuilding would be cheaper and insurance would cover it. Comes now the two strikes of 9/11. He thinks everyone's out and gives orders to pull the towers. Colossal error of judgment. He compounds it by pulling Building No. 7, the giveaway of pre-planting in the twin towers. He breaks down, confesses and, like the captain of the Andrea Doria, spends the rest of his life rocking in the backyard.

Isn't that a better story to foist on the public? They'll think it might shut us up once and for all. Bush's slip has opened the door on what really happened to those twin towers. That Marvin's people didn't spot al-Qaida people infiltrating the buildings to plant thermite/sulphur—in light of events a decade before—is something Dubya will have to explain. That should be a challenge to Karl Rove, et al.

Frankly, their tale of what happened is crumbling before the DVD onslaught of Loose Change, 9/11 Revisited, 9/11 Eye Witness and, most recently, 9/11 Press for Truth. Bush's slip of the tongue adds to the puzzle pieces. That a third of the American public now believes 9/11 was an inside job on a par with the Reichstag fire as their "new Pearl Harbor"—and growing daily—is forcing them to respond. And they're making mistakes in the cover up. Isn't that why they commissioned that ABC two-part crock-umentary? The NORAD tapes?

Let's focus on Larry Silverstein next to get at the truth. And/or find out who sold enough thermite/sulphur to take out those three buildings—and who bought it. Next, let's pose the Building No. 7 situation with engineering societies, every engineering school in the country, and architectural school and firm. Let's keep after them and get the truth out about what this regime has done.

The thing that gets me is that there's no reaction from the press 25.Sep.2006 23:38

You would think some reporter would ask:

"Hey, Mr. President. What are these explosives you're talking about? Did somebody put explosives in the WTC towers? Is that what you said?"

A while back the news came out that Jack Abramoff was taking Mohammad Atta as special guest along on some of his booze crusies. They were quite buddy-buddy. If I was a reporter, I would think this was big news. Is nobody even curious about this?

it's just words 26.Sep.2006 22:10

not george dumbya's strong suit

when bush uses the word "explosives" in relation to the twin towers, i think he is speaking in the "using hijacked planes as explosives" context. he is not talking about controlled demolition.
