Instead of making a big scene and dropping a bombshell so-to-speak, the commission ‘compromised’ and deferred to the justice department so that it could pursue criminal investigations.I recently posted NTSB data indicating that Flight 77 never dropped below 273 feet after take off and could not, therefore, have crashed into the Pentagon! Damien followed up with NTSB data contradicting every Bush administration statement with regard to Flight 93, another mysterious crash characterized by the lack of airliner wreckage. [See: NTSB Filght Data: Official 'Explanation' of Flight 93 is a Criminal Fraud!; NTSB Flight Data: Flight 77 Could Not Have Crashed into the 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.9/11 Panel Suspected Deception by Pentagon
Suspicion of wrongdoing ran so deep that the 10-member commission, in a secret meeting at the end of its tenure in summer 2004, debated referring the matter to the Justice Department for criminal investigation, according to several commission sources. Staff members and some commissioners thought that e-mails and other evidence provided enough probable cause to believe that military and aviation officials violated the law by making false statements to Congress and to the commission, hoping to hide the bungled response to the hijackings, these sources said.
As we are all well aware, criminal charges were never made and it looks like interest in pursuing ‘justice’ wasn’t a top priority for the Department of Justice.
The panel agreed to a compromise, turning over the allegations to the inspectors general for the Defense and Transportation departments, who can make criminal referrals if they believe they are warranted, officials said.Liberals have been shouting the Bush Administration for some time now. In fact, the hatred for our administration is so strong that Republicans had to concoct rhetoric in order to deal with the anger. “BDS” short for Bush Derangement Syndrome is all that the GOP die-hards could come up with to combat the allegations of impropriety and lawlessness that best characterizes President Bush and his administration of bandits.
“We to this day don’t know why NORAD [the North American Aerospace Command] told us what they told us,” said Thomas H. Kean, the former New Jersey Republican governor who led the commission. “It was just so far from the truth. . . . It’s one of those loose ends that never got tied.”
--Did the Pentagon Lie To 9/11 Commission?
Pilots for 9/11 Truth is an organization of aviation professionals and pilots throughout the globe who have gathered together for one purpose. We are committed to seeking the truth surrounding the events of the 11th of September 2001. Our main focus concentrates on the four flights, maneuvers performed and the reported pilots. We do not offer theory or point blame at this point in time. However, we are focused on determining the truth of that fateful day based on solid data and facts -- since 9/11/2001 is the catalyst for many of the events shaping our world today -- and the United States Government doesn't seem to be very forthcoming with answers or facts.
The FBI released the following footage, apparently an effort to put to rest 'outlandish' conclusions based upon NTSB flight data indicating that Flight 77 NEVER reached an altitude less than 273 feet since its first ascent upon take-off! Now --keep in mind that this FBI footage is supposed to put to rest those 'outlandish conspiracy theories' that Bush warned us about. Please keep in mind that this video is not intended to create even more 'outlandish conspiracy theories', though, I am sure that had been the result. Therefore, after watching the following video, please resist the urge to call up the FBI while yelling FRAUD, FRAUD, FRAUD!!!
I would venture to say that Flight 77 is not visible in the video because it was not video taped 'crashing into the Pentagon. A corollary: it was not video taped crashing into the Pentagon because it never crashed into the Pentagon. My assertion not merely a challenge to the Bush administration to put up or shut, it is consistent with "official" flight 77 data released to Pilotsfor911truth in response to their FOIA request. That makes it official. If you have a problem with the data, then take it up with the NTSB. Given the context that "official" flight data indicates that Flight 77 was at the time of this "fire ball" at an altitude of some 273 feet above the Pentagon, one is justified in demanding that the Bush administration release every photograph that was made of the Pentagon from every security camera on September 11, 2001. Of thousands that were surely taken, only two --a grainy, blurring GIF and the worse 'video' posted in this article have been released. Why is that? What does Bush continue to cover up? Guilt?
It was some time ago that the self-anointed skeptic, Michael Shermer, made a gullible false analogy, comparing those who are skeptical of Bush's absurd theory with "Holocaust Deniers" --"911 Deniers", he called us/them! The analogy is bullshit and betrays Shermer's gullibility and subverts his carefully nurtured image as a 'skeptic'.
My following remark is addressed to Michael Shermer directly: Michael, skeptics do not become cheerleaders for bullshit theories for which there is not a shred of evidence --hard or soft! Secondly, your analogy breaks down. Holocaust deniers deny abundant evidence, much of which was entered into 'evidence' at the war crimes trial of Nazi brass at Nuremberg. In the case of 911, there is, in fact, no credible evidence to deny! There is no comparable documentation! There is no logical or empirical support of Bush whatsoever! What has surfaced --an official autopsy report of Pentagon dead and, most recently, flight data (NTSB) from Flights 77 and 93 all but destroy Bush's ever changing official theories of 911.
One of the most damning critiques Bush's official theory comes from, Heather Thomas, author of Trophies: A Novel:
There was no fuselage at the Pentagon. There was none that you could check out. They said it vaporized, and yet they produced bodies saying that they didn't vaporize. You can vaporize a two-ton engine?
Thomas is absolutely correct. It's hard to imagine fires hot enough to vaporize the hard steel engines of a 757. In fact, steel is used for airliner engines precisely because it will not melt or --worse --completely vaporize in a kerosene fire. Last time, I checked flight was still possible! If Bush were correct, it would not be! Engines for jet aircraft are still made of STEEL because steel will not melt by a kerosene combustion which, by the way, takes place under high pressure. That's how engines work and they would not work if they melted at kerosene fire temperatures. If you can still buy a ticket at Newark and fly to Los Angeles, Bush is a liar.
Thomas saw though this gaping hole while pompous network poohbahs, 'commentators, and pundits got suckered (or paid off) into believing and propagating the pernicious and evil myth that you can burn kerosene inside a 757 engine but the same aircraft will vaporize completely in a kerosene fire!
Initially, Bush defenders denied the presence of 'molten steel' at WTC. Later, when it was clear that 'molten steel' was absolutely necessary to support their mumbo jumbo, their superstition that both towers collapsed into their own footprints due to fire damage, they embraced molten steel. It was the only way to get the steel to melt. The story had to sound credible. For these people --sounding plausible is more important than truth.
Later, when it was made abundantly clear, that never in recorded history has a kerosene fire melted steel, the story was changed yet again. The 'steel' was only 'weakened to the point of collapse, we were told. But what point is that? It doesn't matter because the Bush liars were trying to have it both ways again. The new cover story did not explain: 1) professional firefighter testimony that molten steel was in fact observed; 2) it does not explain video tapes of what can only be molten steel; 3) it does not explain video tapes of molten steel flowing down the sides of still un-collapsed towers!The cat --the verified presence of molten steel --was already out of the bag.
It was time for another cover story, another PR offensive. Bush defenders --in yet another version --cried foul. This time they took aim at 911 first responders. Firefighters, they said, mistook molten aluminum for molten steel, an insult to working, professional firefighters whose testimony would most certainly be considered 'expert' in any courtroom. I rather think that the testimony of professional firefighers with regard to what they saw is infinitely more credible than that of a flack somewhere on K-street or inside the White House --a din of iniquity if there ever was one.
Thus Bush defenders were caught trying to paper over yet another glaring hole in Bush's official lie with yet another version designed to plug up holes in the dike. Even if it were true, there is no evidence in support of a 'new' theory that heat from melting aluminum is sufficient to melt over 100 stories of steel cladding, steel reinforced walls, a tightly woven steel core --the existence of which officials tried to hide!
The 911 Commission, for example, failed to mention that in the towers of the WTC was a very densely re-enforced steel core. As far as the 911 Commission report is concerned, the 'core' just didn't exist. This is a pathetic picture of murderers, liars and felons desperately trying to come up with a credible cover story ---but, alas, too late!
Most recently, NIST has come up with still another 'version' intended to paper over the myriad of flaws and bullshit to be found in the official narratives. They have invented an entirely new phenomenon -- 'heat expansion' --to explain what is best explained with just two words: controlled demolition! What is the term 'heat expansion' supposed to mean in this context. If you heat the air in a balloon, it expands and the ballon rises. The liars at the NIST have failed to demonstrate the relevance of hot air balloons to WTC --an instance of undeniable controlled demolition. The building in question is, of course, WTC 7 said by Silverstein himself to have been pulled! I suggest the paid liars at NIST go take a hot air balloon ride. Hot air carried aloft by hot air. Poetic justice.
Silverstein Properties (collected large insurance payout due to the attacks of 911) was one of the contracters NIST depended on to get to the truth in the investigation. Look at the NIST report here on page vii for contributors to the investigation. Talk about the fox guarding the henhouse. Can you say "conflict of interest?" And how about all of NIST's precious recommendations for future building safety?It looked like a controlled demolition because it was a controlled demolition. Re-writing the laws of physics is not allowed! Neocons may break and ignore the laws of this nation and the international treaties to which we are bound, but not even Bush nor his evil minions may violate with impunity the laws of nature and physics.
--What Really Happened: Surprise!! NIST concludes fire dropped WTC7 at free-fall into its own footprint
Clearly --WTC had been wired for a controlled demolition perhaps months before 911. The motive is a matter of public record: "the verdict in U.S. District Court in Manhattan was the latest twist in Mr. Silverstein's efforts to turn his $3.5 billion insurance policy on the trade center complex into a $7 billion payout."
Here are some lessons in 'skepticism' for Michael Shermer who fell for and swallowed as gospel an absurd and outlandish theory. THOSE WHO ASSERT MUST PROVE. Shermer would have us ignore this important and prudent dictum. Bush and his partisans put forward --asserted --a "theory", an "official conspiracy theory" for which there is not a shred of hard evidence or established physical science in support --let alone a proof. Shermer's magazine is called "The Skeptic". Since Shermer's amazing display of credulousness and naivete, haven't been able to read 'The Skeptic' with a straight face.
The burden of proof is on Bush and the dwindling number of rats, many of whom are jumping ship. Let's start with the co-chairs of the 911 Commission. Both have now dis-avowed their own work. They don't even believe it and claimed that they were misled by Bush and the Pentagon! They are not alone in that belief. Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, PhD, U.S. Air Force (ret) was a Pentagon eye-witness. She is a former member of the staff of the Director of the National Security Agency. As a contributing author to the 2006 book 9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out, she wrote:
I believe the [9/11] Commission failed to deeply examine the topic at hand, failed to apply scientific rigor to its assessment of events leading up to and including 9/11, failed to produce a believable and unbiased summary of what happened, failed to fully examine why it happened, and even failed to include a set of unanswered questions for future research.
It is as a scientist that I have the most trouble with the official government conspiracy theory, mainly because it does not satisfy the rules of probability or physics. The collapses of the World Trade Center buildings clearly violate the laws of probability and physics.
--Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, PhD, U.S. Air Force (ret), Twenty-five U.S. Military Officers Challenge Official Account of 9/11.
Kwiatkowski one in a long and growing list of equally intelligent, qualified, expert and articulate folk many of whom have literally driven a stake through the heart of Bush's evil and treasonous lie. I might have picked her quote at random from among the throng which now makes up a growing chorus demanding that the crime of 911 be investigated and the perpetrators brought to trial and justice. You won't have any trouble finding other outraged and patriotic Americans who will speak out against tyranny. It is a growing chorus of true skeptics who will tell you that Bush's official conspiracy theory is a black hearted lie.
(CBS) President Bush took a few minutes during his trip to Europe Thursday to voice his opposition to establishing a special commission to probe how the government dealt with terror warnings before Sept. 11.
Mr. Bush said the matter should be dealt with by congressional intelligence committees.
CBS News Correspondent Bill Plante reports that Mr. Bush said the investigation should be confined to Congress because it deals with sensitive information that could reveal sources and methods of intelligence. Therefore, he said, the congressional investigation is "the best place" to probe the events leading up to the terrorist attacks.
Bush's excesses in office stem from the powers he assumed upon the pretext of 911. They include but are not limited to his numerous abrogations of the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights and habeas corpus, his assumption of dictatorial powers as evinced by his many 'signing statements', in fact, his rule by decree. It is all right out of Adolph Hitler's play book. Until these crucial issues having to do with the very legitimacy of our government are addressed, the current election campaign is eyewash. I am waiting for Barack Obama to address the issue of nothing less than the legitimacy of this government.
Flight77.info says that it is trying to secure the release of about 80 videos that are related to the Pentagon crash. The liars in DC most certainly have better footage but will never release it. It will confirm even more convincingly that Flight 77 NEVER struck the Pentagon. DC will not willingly and of its own accord release information or evidence that will prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that an airliner did not crash into the Pentagon.
An administration capable of crashing a missile into its own Pentagon with a careless, murderous disregard for human life is likewise capable of lying about the falls of the Twin Towers and WTC 7; it is capable of lying about WMD, it is capable of waging war upon the people of the United States itself. The waging of war against the people by the people's own government is called high treason and traditionally, it requires the death penalty. King Charles I of England was beheaded for less egregious crimes than those which may now be charged to Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and very other co-conspirator inside the White House.
It would appear that the FBI is up to its ass in the cover up of 911. I suggest that the cover up of high treason is high treason. Congress should empower a special prosecutor to investigate Bush, the FBI, the Pentagon and the JD. The American people are left little choice but to effect not merely regime change but a sweeping purge, nothing less than the creation of a new government. A new broom sweeps clean! We may yet round up a enough traitors to fill up a football stadium.
This essential update from Goon Squad blogger and pilot --Greg Bacon:
Another aspect of this to consider is called the Wing in Ground effect or WIG.Also see:
WIG holds that large aircraft and a 757 is definitely large, can't fly close to the ground because of all of the turbulence created by the aircraft's wings.
A pilot would not be able to control a large aircraft flying that close to the ground, the turbulence kicked up by the wings would be hellish.
The jet would either have to land or gain altitude, it CAN NOT fly that close to the ground, its physically impossible.
Of course, they could just make up a new term for this new twisting of the laws of physics, just like they made up a new term for the collapse of WTC, calling this new term "thermal expansion."
Which, if you watched the NIST briefing /charade on the WTC collapse, is a term just for WTC 7, since it hadn't happened before and may not happen again.
And their explanation of just one beam causing the whole damned building to collapse is laughable.
Look at the pics of WTC 6, which sustained damage from falling debris from WTC 1 or 2.
That building got nearly sawed in half by debris, yet it was still standing at the end of the day.
Is anybody at home in America?
Can we wake up before its too late?
