Why 'Israelis' Danced on 911

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

It was stated recently on Facebook that investigating 911 is a waste of time, that nothing was 'likely to be proven'. That's obvious! It is the purpose of a cover up to make of 'investigations' a 'waste of time'. On this point, whomever perpetrated 911 won when Bush made of the pursuit of justice a 'waste of time'.

The lesson learned is that if you are sufficiently rich and/or powerful, you can subvert justice, the rule of law, the truth! Our nation is lost if truth is abandoned because the pursuit of it is a 'waste of time'. In such a society, no one is free; everything is based upon a lie and, based upon a lie, is unjust. Such a society is a police state, at best a tyranny of an uninformed 'majority'! The 'establishment' is not appalled by widespread ignorance; it depends upon it and promotes it. Such a society is finished! The U.S. will fall ignominiously as did Rome of its folly, arrogance and incompetence.

Only the guilty are sufficiently motivated to cover up a crime. Just as obvious is the corollary: the innocent have nothing to cover up! If Bush covered up and/or obstructed in any way the investigation of the crime of 911, then he is guilty of acts of obstruction of justice intended to hide the truth in ways that would protect him or his 'friends' or both! 'Obstruction of justice' was one of several serious allegations against Richard Nixon, leading to articles of impeachment, eventually his ignominious resignation.

Bush personally and his administration, under his orders, covered up the crime of 911, warning 'free' Americans that they must not inquire beyond his official statements, that they must not indulge 'outrageous conspiracy theories' even as he rolled out the most outrageous, the most absurd, the most ludicrous conspiracy theory of them all. It is the pernicious legacy of 911 that it was exploited by Bush, the GOP, the U.S. right wing to justify the silencing of dissent, the silencing of America.

Certainly, the crime of 911 should have been investigated while the trail was still warm; a legitimate President would have ordered it, insisted upon it. The trail has grown cold, an outcome desired by an administration that opposed the creation of a 911 commission and put limits on it as a condition of its creation!
The evidence includes the unprecedented nature of what happened that day, the eyewitness testimonies of people present at the site, and the physical evidence demonstrated by photographs and videos. 1, 2 Evidence for explosives is also given through proof by contradiction in that seven years of ever-changing government reports could not provide a non-explosive story for destruction of the WTC buildings. 3, 4, 5 More recently, peer-reviewed scientific papers show that energetic materials were present at the WTC, as indicated by the environmental data and the dust from Ground Zero. 6, 7, 8
The forensic investigation of explosions typically aims to determine who had the means, opportunity and motive to accomplish the explosive event. 9 When that approach is taken with the WTC, we can see that those who had the greatest means and opportunity also had the greatest motive. For example, we've seen that certain tenant companies that occupied the WTC towers not only had the opportunity, but they also had the means in terms of access and expertise, to place explosives in the buildings. 10 We also know that the security companies that were responsible for planning and implementing the security plan for the towers, after the 1993 bombing, appeared to have benefited from the attacks. 11 Additionally, the companies reviewed were connected to each other through certain powerful people and organizations, and had all done major work for the Saudi Arabian government.
--KEVIN RYAN, Demolition Access to the WTC Towers: Part Four - Cleanup
In the days and weeks following 911, Bush ordered the destruction of 911 evidence --on its face obstruction of justice!

Other than subsection 1512(c), there are three federal statutes which expressly outlaw the destruction of evidence in order to obstruct justice: 18 U.S.C. 1519 prohibits destruction of evidence in connection with federal investigation or bankruptcy proceedings, 18 U.S.C. 1520 prohibits destruction of corporate audit records, and 18 U.S.C. 2232(a) prohibits the destruction of property to prevent the government from searching or seizing it.
None of the three are RICO or money laundering predicate offenses.334 There are no explicit statements of extraterritorial jurisdiction for any of them, but the courts are likely to conclude that overseas violation of their provisions are subject to prosecution in this country. None of them feature an individual conspiracy component, but all of them are subject to general federal law governing conspiracy, principals, accessories after the fact, and misprision.335 Obstruction of Investigations by Destruction of Evidence (18 U.S.C. 1519). Where subsection 1512(c) condemns obstruction of federal proceedings by destruction of evidence, Section 1519 outlaws obstruction of federal investigations or bankruptcy proceedings by such means. Section 1519’s language suggests that it reaches only executive branch investigations and does not extend to Congressional investigations or judicial investigations such as those conducted by a federal grand jury. It declares:
    Whoever knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the investigation or proper administration of any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States or any case filed under title 11, or in relation to or contemplation of any such matter or case, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.
Although its “relation to or contemplation of” clause may admit to more than one construction, the section’s elements might be displayed as follows:
I. Whoever II. knowingly III. A. alters, B.destroys, C. Mutilates
-- Obstruction of Justice: an Overview of Some of the Federal Statutes that Prohibit Interference with Judicial, Executive, or Legislative Activities By the time I saw 'ground zero' for myself, every scrap had been carted off! I peered into a deep and pristine hole! An individual cannot cover up his/her crimes on this scale. But Bushco --his administration of fellow crooks like Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld --covered up the crime of 911 in 'full view of the world'. The American 'sheeple' bought it!

The only time in history in which such a heinous crime was perpetrated so openly was the Holocaust about which Hitler boasted "I waged war on the Jew in full view of the world!" The lesson Bush learned from Hitler was this: commit mass murder in broad daylight, order the destruction of all physical evidence, tar the opposition with a label: conspiracy theorist, and, for good measure, accuse them of being un-patriotic! How dare that cretinous murderer impugn my patriotism?! My ancestors had been on this continent for thousands of years before the likes of Bush-scum would would ever see and invade these shores.

I am of the opinion that only those guilty of crimes are sufficiently motivated to cover them up as did Bush with regard to 911. I would have entertained an innocent explanation but for the fact that the destruction itself is a crime and those ordering and complying are criminals by definition, by law!

The Bush conspiracy theory of 911 is shot-through with holes, unexplained anomalies and outright lies. Certainly, a definitive list of every falsehood, every distortion, every misstatement is beyond the scope of any article I might put on this blog. What may be done, however, is to categorize them --the three most obvious and fatal holes, the three legs without which the tripod will not stand..
  1. A 757 did NOT crash into the Pentagon! The wings and tail are huge surfaces areas --certainly bigger than the tiny hole said by official conspiracy theorists to have been the impact point! The hole would not have accommodated the fuselage, let alone the wings and tail which might have broken off to be found on the lawn. Nor was there any significant damage that might have been attributed to either wings or tail section or both. Neither was there evidence of wings or tail section! There was a 'punch out' hole in the inner ring but could not have been made by a 757!
    Even if the plane had 'shredded' --as some have claimed --'80 tons of plane is still 80 tons of debris'.
    "Wings that should have been sheared off by the impact are entirely absent. There is also substantial evidence of debris from a much smaller jet-powered aircraft inside the building. We conclude with a high degree of certainty that no Boeing 757 struck the building. We also conclude with a substantial degree of certainty that a smaller, single-engined aircraft, roughly the size and shape of an F-16, did, in fact, strike the building."
    Detailed analysis of the debris field, physical damage, and other factors in the alleged impact of a Boeing 757 on the Pentagon building on the morning of September 11, 2001 reveals an almost complete absence of debris expected from such an event. (Elliott 2003) The initial (pre-collapse) hole made by the alleged impact on the ground floor of Wedge One of the building is too small to admit an entire Boeing 757. In order to decide whether or not a Boeing 757 (or aircraft of comparable size) struck the Pentagon on the morning in question, a comprehensive review of all the debris and other physical evidence is hardly necessary. It turns out that a study of the wings alone suffices for the purpose.
    The analysis presented here is based entirely on standard and/or official sources, such as the engineering report issued under the auspices of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), as directed by an army engineering officer as chair. (ASCE 2003)
    --The Missing Wings, A Comparison of actual and expected wing debris resulting from the impact of a Boeing 757 on the Pentagon building (revised Dec 19, 2004), A. K. Dewdney, G. W. Longspaugh
    We are lead to believe that not only did the 757 penetrate the outer wall, but continued on to penetrate separate internal walls totaling 9 feet of reinforced concrete. The final breach of concrete was a nearly perfectly cut circular hole (see left) in a reinforced concrete wall, with no subsequent damage to the rest of the wall. (If we are to believe that somehow this aluminum aircraft did in fact reach this sixth final wall.)
    --A Boeing 757 did not hit the Pentagon, Michael Meyer, Mechanical Engineer
  2. Johnny Cochran said: "If it does not fit, you must acquit!" Likewise, if there is no wreckage, the Bush cover story falls apart.

    When all other contingencies - official theories and cover stories -fail to hold up under scrutiny, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. The truth is: Bushco lied about the events of 911. They did so deliberately, knowing that all was false. [See also: The Missing Wings]
  3. Airliners could not and did not bring down the towers of the WTC!
  4. Fires, presumably caused by airliner crashes at the Twin Towers of WTC did not melt the steel core and could not have caused the towers' collapse let alone a symmetrical collapse into the building footprint ala a controlled demolition. The fires simply were not hot enough even to have weakened steel.
    The temperatures generated by a hydrocarbon-fuelled office compartment fire are not capable of melting steel. A stoichiometric combustion of kerosene, generally regarded as dodecane, for example...
    C12H26 + 18.5O2 +69.595N2 ===> 12CO2 + 13H2O + 69.595N2 + 7518 kJ

    ...would have at best the above 7,518 kJ locked into 2.712 kg of combustion products to yield an adiabatic flame temperature (AFT) of some 2,398 K or 2,125 C (it is about 130 K less after including the inevitable endothermic dissociation reactions at these temperatures in order to reach an equilibrium state). At standard temperature and pressure, one mole of an ideal gas occupies 22.4 liters; at 2,398 K the volume would have expanded by a factor of 2398/273, i.e. nearly 9 times, to 196.8 liters/mol. The 7.518 MJ is spread amongst 94.595 moles or 18.62 cubic meters of hot gaseous products. At some 0.146 kg/m^3, these are much lighter than air at STP. In order to melt a mere 1 kg of steel that would take up a volume of only 0.127 liters, at least 1 MJ would be required. If 1/7.518 of the enthalpy (heat) in the products was directed at the kilogram of steel, the temperature rise would be reduced from 2,105 K to a little above 1,825 K which would result in a temperature of a little over 1,845 C and still potentially hot enough to melt some steel. But in real-world conditions, flame and upper layer hot gas temperatures are well below the AFT, typically barely reaching 1,000 C and certainly well below the melting point of steel.

    --WTC Molten Steel: The 911 Smoking Gun
    The following was sent to me by Michael Sanchez, Broadcaster-911 Researcher
    This Program has been permanently removed from the PBS Library.

    It goes on to explain a concrete core that was at the center of the Tower. It also mentions C-4 Plastic explosives were used to line the girders of the building (And then covered and sealed with concrete).

    As a Producer, I have edited a rather extensive (45 Minute) audio interview with Willie Rodriguez (One of the heroes and survivors of the Towers and the last man out of the Building before it fell). He explains that he heard an explosion that could NOT have been the plane hitting the tower. As he was lead out of the building through the lobby, he observed the lobby was DEMOLISHED as he stepped on several dead bodies.

    How does a plane hitting the towers cause the ground floor lobby to be COMPLETELY DESTROYED??? NO WAY does a JET PLANE cause a devastating explosion to a GROUND FLOOR LOBBY. NO WAY did a fire cause the collapse. The explosion (Rodriguez described) was done to DESTROY THE CONCRETE CORE. There have been several credible sources who have tested the remnants of steel and dust from the Towers and have found traces of Thermite.

    The thermite was more than likely planted the weekend before the demolition when there was "Maintenance" being done to the building's Security System. THE BUILDING WAS COMPLETELY OPEN. It took an average of about 18 minutes to place each of the charges via the internal phone security systems boxes (Which were NOT part of the Buildings' regular business phone systems). A BUSH Family member, Marvin Bush was a Board Member of the company in charge of the Security. There are MORE unanswered questions THAN there are "Answered Questions".

  5. There is no evidence that there were Arabs on Flight 77

  6. If there were no Arabs on Flight 77, then the official theory must be completely discarded. At last, some 184 un-identified remains were buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
    A five-sided granite marker bearing the 184 names will be placed over a shared grave at Arlington National Cemetery — the nation's most prestigious burial ground — holding the unidentified remains. [emphasis mine, LH]

    --Arlington National Cemetary
    Of the 184, sixty-four were said to have been passengers of Flight 77, the flight which is said to have crashed into the Pentagon.
    A list of names on a piece of paper is not evidence, but an autopsy by a pathologist, is. I undertook by FOIA request, to obtain that autopsy list and you are invited to view it below. Guess what? Still no Arabs on the list. In my opinion the monsters who planned this crime made a mistake by not including Arabic names on the original list to make the ruse seem more believable.
    When airline disasters occur, airlines will routinely provide a manifest list for anxious families. You may have noticed that even before Sep 11th, airlines are pretty meticulous about getting an accurate headcount before takeoff. It seems very unlikely to me, that five Arabs sneaked onto a flight with weapons. This is the list provided by American of the 56 passengers. On September 27th, the FBI published photos of the “hijackers” of Flight 77
    Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP), does a miraculous job and identifies nearly all the bodies on November 16th 2001.
    The AFIP suggest these numbers; 189 killed, 125 worked at the Pentagon and 64 were “passengers” on the plane. The AA list only had 56 and the list just obtained has 58. They did not explain how they were able to tell “victims” bodies from “hijacker” bodies. In fact, from the beginning NO explanation has been given for the extra five suggested in news reports except that the FBI showed us the pictures to make up the difference, and that makes it so. 
    --Thomas R. Olmsted, M.D, Autopsy: No Arabs on Flight 77
    The numbers will never add up. Arlington National Cemetary says it interred 184. But AFIP says there were a total of 189 bodies --125 worked at the Pentagon and 64 were “passengers” on flight 77. Arlington claims that the unidentified remains of 184 victims share a grave at Arlington National Cemetery.
    A five-sided granite marker bearing the 184 names will be placed over a shared grave at Arlington National Cemetery — the nation's most prestigious burial ground — holding the unidentified remains.
    Arlington National CemeteryI interpret that to mean that this "shared grave" is the final resting place for unidentified victims from both the Pentagon and Flight 77. Five are unaccounted for --presumably the "terrorist" hijackers. But that does not account for the discrepancy for several reasons. Both Arlington and AFIP claim that there were 64 Pentagon workers. AFIP provided a list of 56 passengers of Flight 77. That''s only 120! If you exclude 5 terrorists from the AFIP's total of 189, you are still left with 64 "people" completely unaccounted for. Who the hell are they?
    No Arabs wound up on the morgue slab; however, three ADDITIONAL people not listed by American Airlines sneaked in. I have seen no explanation for these extras. I did American [Airlines] the opportunity to “revise” their original list, but they have not responded. The new names are: Robert Ploger, Zandra Ploger, and Sandra Teague. The AFIP claims that the only “passenger” body that they were not able to identify is the toddler, Dana Falkenberg, whose parents and young sister are on the list of those identified. 
    --Thomas R. Olmsted, M.D, Autopsy: No Arabs on Flight 77
    These are just a tiny few of the myriad of facts that Bush loyalists cannot explain away or rationalize with the official conspiracy theory. The silver bullet is this: there were no arabs on the flight manifests when "officialdom" maintains that all the said hijackers were Arab. Johnny Cochran won a famous murder trial with a single phrase which summed up his defense: "If it does not fit, you must acquit!" I rather think that a guilty party might be indicted just as simply: "No Arabs on flight! You must indict!"
These are fatal discrepancies in Bush's official conspiracy theory of 911. Any one of these glaring faults is enough to collapse the official 'theory', the official bald-faced lie.

Show me the wreckage!

'Wreckage' was carted off under a blue tarpaulin. Hardly 255,000 lbs of airliner wreckage. I doubt that white shirted government goons could have lifted 200 pounds let alone 255,000 lbs! Those believing that some 255,000 lbs of wreckage was recovered must prove their assertion but obviously cannot. If the wreckage of an airliner had been recovered, it is reasonable to expect that with a proper investigation, the aircraft would be re-assembled.

When an airliner blew up over Lockerbie, Scotland in the 1980s, leaving debris over the township and surrounding countryside, every scrap was gathered, the aircraft re-assembled in a hangar. Likewise, the Space Shuttle Columbia which left wreckage over 3 states after breaking up in the stratosphere at speeds much, much higher than those of any airliner said to have been involved on 911. If anything were going to vaporize, it would have been Columbia. Bit it did not and neither would have any flight alleged to have been involved in 911. Show me the wreckage! Until that is done and the wreckage identified by experts, 911 is a pure bullshit!

Why was flight 911 an exception?

Why was it not re-assembled?

Why was the crime of mass murder not investigated?

Why was 911, in fact, covered up and justice subverted?

Why were the crimes of felony destruction of evidence and perjury never investigated?

It was widely believed and disseminated via the internet that the fuselage of Flight 77 vaporized in the intense heat! What intense heat? Kerosene (jet fuel) fires are relatively 'cool'! I looked up the temperature at which Aluminum vaporizes. It is 11000 degrees F which NASA states is almost 1000 degrees hotter than the surface of the sun.
The part of the sun that we see has a temperature of about 5500 degrees C (10,000 degrees F). Astronomers measure star temperatures in a metric unit called the Kelvin (abbreviated K). One Kelvin equals exactly 1 Celsius degree (1.8 Fahrenheit degree), but the Kelvin and Celsius scales begin at different points. The Kelvin scale starts at absolute zero, which is -273.15 degrees C (- 459.67 degrees F). Thus, the temperature of the solar surface is about 5800 K. Temperatures in the sun's core reach over 15 million K.

--The Sun, NASA
Other facts are easily verified if one is courageous enough to be honest. Most notably: Aluminum will not penetrate steel at any speed! That fact alone will rule out the many 'animations' and/or cartoons that you will see on YouTube, the most egregious is said to have been produced by Perdue University. The producers --whoever they really are --presume to call it 'accurate'. It was so 'accurate' that it entirely omitted a dense, steel core clearly depicted in construction photos.

The official cover story does not work. An aluminum fuselage will not penetrate the hard steel outer 'cladding'.

Kinetic energy is absorbed by the softer body.

Don't take my word for it. Just try hurling a marshmallow wad with a Trebouchet against either a brick wall or metal garage door. Guess which object gets 'smushed-up" into a 'splat'. Not the brick wall; NOT the garage door. Hurl the marshmallow at either at Mach 1, 2, 3 or even higher. It makes no difference. The additional kinetic energy gained by velocity is absorbed by the softer body. In this 'thought experiment', the softer body is the marshmallow. In the real world, the softer body is the largely hollow, aluminum fuselage that did not and could not have penetrated the outer steel cladding, let alone the dense steel core depicted at right during construction.

A 757 has two engines each containing a Titanium-Steel alloy rotor with a diameter of about 12 feet. Titanium-steel alloy is chosen so that it won't melt inside the engine. But this elementary fact is utterly lost upon those intent upon perverting, distorting or lying about the laws of physics in order to cover up the crimes of mass murder and high treason! Those defending the Bush theory must prove their assertions that these rotors were recovered. Where are they? Show me the wreckage!

In fact, there is no such evidence, no such proof. Had there been such evidence, had Bush been innocent of 911, he would have made that evidence public! It would have been a priority. It might have legitimized a 'war on terror' which is otherwise a mere act of imperial terrorism, an act of mass murder by a rogue nation. Had Bush been a legitimate President he would have made this information available immediately. Had he been 'innocent', above suspicion, he would have made public the evidence; he would have insisted upon it! Instead, he ordered 'evidence' covered up in a blue tarpaulin, hauled off, to be destroyed! An innocent man does not destroy evidence that would exonerate him! Bush's orders and actions in the wake of 911 are the actions of a culprit, a perpetrator, a mass murderer!

Now --there was wreckage at the Pentagon but not wreckage traceable to a 757 nor was such a trace attempted. The scant wreckage left behind is evidence of a much smaller craft --a missile --striking the Pentagon. Only one engine rotor was found; it was about one third the size of two much larger rotors that would have been found had a 757 done the damage. If an airliner of some 200 tons had crashed and burned at any temp less than that of a nuclear explosion, it will leave behind 200 tons of wreckage. Those are the laws of physics, specifically, the Law of the Conservation of Matter and Energy.

I doubt that the 'white-shirted' office schmucks who carted the wreckage off under a blue tarpaulin were capable of lifting upon their wimpy shoulders some 200 tons. Why was the wreckage not re-assembled? Was the Bush administration afraid of revealing by re-assembly what it was that actually struck the Pentagon? I am sure of it. They dare not re-assemble the meager wreckage as was, in fact, done when an airliner exploded over Lockebie, Scotland in the 1980s. In the case of Lockerbie and, much later, the Space Shuttle Columbia the wreckage, the evidence was gathered.

Only one engine rotor was found among the few scraps at the Pentagon. About one third the diameter of a 757 engine, it was most certainly left behind by the U.S. Global Hawk which uses a Rolls-Royce engine with specs consistent with what can be learned from the only photograph showing any sort of rotor on the Pentagon lawn whatsoever. The bad news for Bush partisans is that the single rotor that was found is but about one-third the size of the rotors such rotors that would have been found had a 757 crashed the pent. But the ONLY rotors that was found is about the right size of the SINGLE rotor that is used in the U.S. Global Hawk, evidence of an inside job.

Conan Doyle by way of his character Sherlock Holmes said:
When you have eliminated the impossible whatever remains however implausible must be the truth!
Today, the truth is reviled. At least since GWB, possibly since Ronald Reagan, the government has been controlled by a nexus of liars and self-interested opportunists and militarists. There is money to be made killing people abroad, 'death and destruction' have become America's biggest exports!

The Military-Industrial Complex is the fancy name given to the venal cooperation between Pentagon Brass and the makers of killing machines --automated drones, robots, and de-humanized 'soldiers'. The deals are cut on K-street, that on-going auction in which the 'empire' is sold or more properly pimped! The most powerful lobby is the so-called Jewish Lobby, called thus because the 'foreign' government of Israel is, we are told, prohibited by law to lobby the government of the United States. Subterfuge! The results are what counts. As long as money buys souls the government of the U.S. is 'owned' by the state of Israel. What was that I read about Israelis 'dancing' on 911?

Adieu, Daniel Schorr, a real journalist, a CBS legend.
Most people listening to NPR the last twenty years have come to know the name Daniel Schorr as the commentator who gave sage advice and observations of an increasingly shrinking world. But if you grew up in the 1950's and 60's, Schorr was the correspondent who had first hand knowledge of the Cold War, was the first to do a live on-air interview with Nikita Khruschev and who ran afoul of Richard Nixon's White House during the Watergate era.

Schorr, like all the correspondents during that great age of reporting at CBS News, was the cool observer who reported and never spun, sought answers and shared a vast amount of knowledge. His was one of the many voices that came to be trusted in times of uncertainty.

And it was during the Cold War that Schorr had some of his greatest moments. In 1962, when tensions between the West and the Soviet Union were at their highest, Daniel Schorr reported on the newly constructed Berlin Wall, taking a crew to East Berlin in search of answers.

The result was the CBS Reports documentary Berlin: Wall of Shame, which aired on January 4, 1962. A vivid picture of just how bad relations had become between East and West.

It is doubtful we'll see or hear his kind again anytime soon. It is a tragedy that no heir apparent is on the horizon to take his place. More tragic that CBS News has become a lifeless shell of its former self. It is probably the time his words of calm and his keen observations are the most needed.

But all we can do at the moment is be reminded and perhaps strive.

RIP - Daniel Schorr.

George Bush Sr, JFK and the Men Who Stole America

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

As Texas Sen Lloyd Bentsen famously told GOP V.P. candidate Dan Quayle in the Vice Presidential debate of October 5, 1988:
"I served with Jack Kennedy. I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy".
That exchange from the Vice-Presidential debates (1988) was a bitter reminder that the cold-blooded murder of JFK destroyed the 'America' that we had known and loved. Not only JFK died that day but our hopes and dreams for a better America, a world at peace.

I was not as fortunate as the late Senator Bentsen and did not know JFK. I was still in high school. But I knew George Bush Sr --sort of, if any one ever 'really' knew him or 'knows' him! We never hung out or shared a beer! George Bush Sr was no friend of mine! And never will be! If my suspicions are true, Bush is no friend of anyone --rather an enemy of the American people, the Constitution, possibly the world!

I did know Bush Sr well enough to recognize him up close or from a distance. I could pick him out in a crowd from across the huge Grand Ballroom of the Houston Hyatt-Regency. I am convinced that it is Bush Sr who was photographed 'hanging around' just outside the Texas School Book Depository just moments before JFK was murdered.
Jim Marrs : During that time, during the time of the Bay of Pigs, while you were training and moving around in the Caribbean, No Name Key and all that, did you ever hear the name George Herbert Walker Bush?

James Files: Oh Yeah!

Jim Marrs: What was his role?

James Files: George Herbert Walker Bush. I don't know if, I think a lot of people are not going to believe this, but he worked for the CIA back as early as 1961 that I know of.

Jim Marrs : How did he work? What did he do?

James Files : I don't know all he did, but he did a lot of recruiting work. I know he was there at the beginning for what we called Group 40, a special operations group, Group 40. If you wonder what Group 40 was, an assassination group.

Operation 40 was a top secret CIA project to train selected cuban exiles in guerrilla warfare and assassinations, aimed against the Castro regime. Apart from Felix Rodriguez, other members were now infamous CIA agents and Anti Castro terrorists like Luis Posada Carriles, Orlando Bosch, Guillermo and Ignacio Novo Sampoll and later Watergate plumbers Frank Sturgis, Eugenio Martinez, Virgilio Gonzalez and E. Howard Hunt. Most of the operation 40 members were recruited from JM/Wave, a much larger clandestine operation to train a cuban exile army for the Bay of Pigs invasion. JM/Wave is headed by CIA official Theodore Shackley. James Files, the confessed gunman on the grassy knoll, was recruited for the CIA by David Atlee Phillips on a recommendation of Ted Shackley. Shackley becomes George Bush's deputy director for Covert Operations in 1976. The CIA controller of JFK's assassin is provably close to Shackley, Shackley is provably close to Bush. Not significant?

--Behind the Bushes
The Warren Commission's official 'magic bullet' theory was cooked up to cover up the undeniable fact that the shot that killed JFK came from the front, the infamous grassy knoll where witnesses were photographed rushing up the knoll toward a leafy cover just behind the picket fence.

A cover-up of the murder began the day he died or even sooner. Gerald Ford admitted to tampering with evidence while he was on the Warren Commission. In other words, Ford committed a federal crime the effect of which has kept the truth from the American people since 1963.
The initial draft of the report stated:
    "A bullet had entered his back at a point slightly above the shoulder to the right of the spine."
Ford wanted it to read:
    "A bullet had entered the back of his neck slightly to the right of the spine."

--Gerald Ford's Terrible Fiction
Anyone lying about the JFK assassination is, as far as I am concerned, suspected of covering up the crimes of murder and high treason that were committed on November 22, 1963. Who lies about a crime but those who are guilty or profiting, in any way, from the cover up? Lying about and covering up a crime is probable cause to suspect the liar of having participated in whatever crime is lied about. Guilt is the most powerful motive to lie about a crime. Conversely, innocent people are powerfully motivated to tell and/or get at the truth.

Like 911, we were and remain targeted to receive a fusillade of lies, the purposes of which are to distract and confuse. Those guilty of the crime are always those who benefit from the lies. Similarly, those who lie about the crime are almost always guilty of it.

Nothing silences a potential witness more effectively than death. The murder of Lee Harvey Oswald by known mobster Jack Ruby was entirely too timely, too convenient. It effectively shut Oswald up. Accused of murdering JFK, Oswald protested that he had been set up, that he had been 'a patsy'. Indeed, Oswald had to die.

It was necessary to create a 'credible sounding' phony investigation before a real investigation could learn the truth. Thus was born the Warren Cover-Up Commission facilitating and promoting the government's official cover story.
"According to the Warren Report the missile hit JFK in the posterior neck, then without striking any hard object passed through the neck to exit at the front of his throat. It then entered Texas Governor John B. Connally's back at the right arm pit, sliding along his fifth rib, demolishing four inches of the rib before it exited his chest below the right nipple. The bullet then allegedly struck and shattered the radius of the right wrist on the dorsal side, then exited at the base of his palm and hit his left thigh just about the knee.

The Report then asserts that CE 399 traveled about three inches beneath the surface of the skin, hit the femur and deposited a lead fragment on the bone. Then, sometime later, with a spasm of reverse kinetic energy it spontaneously exited the hole in Connally's thigh and neatly tucked itself under the mattress of a stretcher parked in a hallway of the Parkland Memorial Hospital that the Report asserted was linked to the wounded governor. There it rested calmly under the mattress waiting for its rendezvous with history."

--Gerald McKnight, Researcher
The "chain of evidence" on Commission Exhibit 399 --known as the 'Magic Bullet' --had been broken. The government could not have convicted Oswald with a 'magic bullet'. Because the 'chain of evidence' had been broken, the 'magic bullet' would not have been admitted as evidence. Oswald would have walked.

A trial of Oswald would have exposed the fraudulent nature of both the Warren Commission and the government's position. That's motive enough to order the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald who had maintained from the get go that he was a 'patsy'. Oswald, I am sure, would have had much more to say in his own defense had his case gone to trial. Oswald knew too much.
Among the many flaws in the composition and mandate of the Warren Commission, the most glaring is that the committee lacked investigative powers. It was at the mercy of the CIA and the FBI to conduct its investigation, and both organizations had a lot to hide. The CIA, for example, refused to reveal the extent to which it had collaborated with organized crime to try to assassinate Castro. Nor did it reveal the files it had on contacts with Lee Oswald, dating to his time in the Soviet Union. Likewise, the FBI had similar interests and files on Oswald’s bizarre movements and affiliations.

Talbot writes: “In the days following the assassination, [CIA Director John] McCone would conclude that there had been two shooters in Dallas, in striking contrast to the official version of the crime of a lone gunman, which was being ardently promoted by Hoover and the FBI.” In their own ways, for their own institutional reasons, both agencies preferred cover-up over truth in answering the question that National Book Award novelist, Don DeLillo, raises in Libra: “Who arranged the life of Lee Harvey Oswald?”

Despite being “one of the first—and among the staunchest—believers in a conspiracy,” Robert Kennedy did little to encourage those challenging the lone-gunman orthodoxy. He had little time for New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, who was, according to Talbot, “shining light on a crucial corner of the conspiracy—a world of zealous CIA plotters, Cuban expatriates, far-right militants, and mercenaries, where President Kennedy was considered a traitor.” Bobby’s gumshoe, Walt Sheridan, did not trust or like Garrison, who placed Oswald, during the summer of 1963, in the company of such Camp Street lowlifes as Guy Banister and David Ferrie. Bobby may also have resented Garrison for disrupting Kennedy’s grand plan, to go public with his conspiracy conclusions only after he had become president. In turn, Garrison could never understand Bobby’s reluctance to join forces and track down the assassins. “If they killed my brother,” Garrison said, “I’d be in the alley waiting for them with a steak knife, not sitting at the Kennedy Center watching a ballet with them.”

Like Dan Quayle, Bush Sr was expert at saying nothing while moving his lips. In his presence, one was always in danger of death by boredom! Nevertheless, he was a Bonesman, the son of a traitor, a CIA 'operative'. He was and probably still is a very dangerous man! As Caesar said of Cassius, he had 'a lean and hungry look'!
A body of leads has been assembled which suggests that George Bush may have been associated with the CIA at some time before the autumn of 1963. According to Joseph McBride of The Nation, “a source with close connections to the intelligence community confirms that Bush started working for the agency in 1960 or 1961, using his oil business as a cover for clandestine activities.” 1

By the time of the Kennedy assassination, we have an official FBI document which refers to “Mr. George Bush of the Central Intelligence Agency,” and despite official disclaimers there is every reason to think that this is indeed the man in the White House today. The mystery of George Bush as a possible covert operator hinges on four points, each one of which represents one of the great political and espionage scandals of postwar American history. These four cardinal points are:
  • The abortive Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba, launched on April 16-17, 1961, prepared with the assistance of the CIA’s “Miami Station” (also known under the code name JM/WAVE). After the failure of the amphibious landings of Brigade 2506, Miami station, under the leadership of Theodore Shackley, became the focus for Operation Mongoose, a series of covert operations directed against Castro, Cuba, and possibly other targets.

  • The assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, and the cover-up of those responsible for this crime.

  • The Watergate scandal, beginning with an April, 1971 visit to Miami, Florida by E. Howard Hunt on the tenth anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion to recruit operatives for the White House Special Investigations Unit (the “Plumbers” and later Watergate burglars) from among Cuban-American Bay of Pigs veterans.

  • The Iran-contra affair, which became a public scandal during October-November 1986, several of whose central figures, such as Felix Rodriguez, were also veterans of the Bay of Pigs.
George Bush’s role in both Watergate and the October surprise/Iran-contra complex will be treated in detail at later points in this book. Right now it is important to see that thirty years of covert operations, in many respects, form a single continuous whole. This is especially true in regard to the dramatis personae. Georgie Anne Geyer points to the obvious in a recent book: “…an entire new Cuban cadre now emerged from the Bay of Pigs.

The names Howard Hunt, Bernard Barker, Rolando Martinez, Felix Rodriguez and Eugenio Martinez would, in the next quarter century, pop up, often decisively, over and over again in the most dangerous American foreign policy crises. There were Cubans flying missions for the CIA in the Congo and even for the Portuguese in Africa; Cubans were the burglars of Watergate; Cubans played key roles in Nicaragua, in Irangate, in the American move into the Persian Gulf.” 2 Felix Rodriguez tells us that he was infiltrated into Cuba with the other members of the “Grey Team” in conjunction with the Bay of Pigs landings; this is the same man we will find directing the contra supply effort in central American during the 1980’s, working under the direct supervision of Don Gregg and George Bush. 3 Theodore Shackley, the JM/WAVE station chief, will later show up in Bush’s 1979-80 presidential campaign.

Was the assassination of JFK a textbook example of the The Modus Operandi of the CIA? In this source insider Ralph McGehee, chronicles the work he performed for the CIA from 1952 through 1977. Another book --Deadly Deceits --is sub-titled: My 25 years in the CIA (New York: Sheridan Square Press, 1983). In this source is compiled a computer data base of CIA activities. Persons interested may write to him at: 422 Arkansas Ave., Herndon, VA 22070. (See .)
“ is essential to provide background on the scope and nature of its worldwide operations. Between 1961 and 1975 the Agency conducted 900 major or sensitive operations, and thousands of lesser covert actions. The majority of its operations were propaganda, election or paramilitary. Countries of major concern, such as Indonesia in the early 1960s, were usually subjected to the CIA's most concerted attention. Critics of the CIA have aptly described the mainstays of such attention: "discrediting political groups... by forged documents that may be attributed to them. . . ." faking "communist weapon shipments,'' capturing communist documents and then inserting forgeries prepared by the Agency's Technical Services Division.

--Ralph McGehee
Americans may be less informed about the CIA than residents of almost every other country. Americans are routinely, deliberately kept in the dark and lied to by a 'mainstream' media that often seems complicit. The MSM dare not tell the truth about the CIA. It is the rare media outlet that will risk alienating its advertising base. See: The Origins of the Overclass, Steve Kangas

Like the fatal flaws in the official conspiracy theory of 911, the holes in the government's JFK story are fatal.

  • No competent or sane sniper/hit man would choose to shoot anyone from the TSBD. The 'view to a kill' was and remains at least partially obscured by branches and leaves as photos taken that day prove! It was and remains the worst of several possible locations! CBS News tried to simulate a shot from the TSBD window. Every attempt failed. None of have succeeded since then. Conclusion: the chances that JFK was shot an killed by a sniper in the TSBD are slim and none!
  • Zapruder frame 313 proves conclusively that the fatal shot came from the front, the so-called Grassy Knoll. My conclusion is based upon large, high-rez digital files of each framein the Zapruder film.
  • No sniper in his right mind would choose a kill spot providing no possibility of egress or escape! Were Oswald the shooter, he would have had to ditch his rifle and run down some six flights into the waiting arms of the cops and/or secret service! No 'hit man' would have tried it! Nor did Oswald!
  • Based on my own visits to Dealy Plaza, I concluded that the picket fence afforded cover, egress and a clear unobstructed shot of the 'target' from a distance about one third that of a 'sniper's nest' anywhere in TSBD. The area between the picket fence and the railroad tracks were most certainly secured by the 'company' that murdered JFK. I have found no official mention that the area had been secured by the secret service in advance of the Kennedy visit.
  • From TSBD, the motorcade is moving laterally and then away; from the picket fence, the target's lateral motion relative to the 'shooter' is minimal. A non-expert could have made the shot but, in fact, it was an expert who did!

I interviewed a witness to the JFK murder many years after the fact. Rosemary Willis was but a child on that fateful day and her story has been ignored by the mainstream media. When we met, she produced several boxes of color slides that had been taken by her father that fateful day in Dealy Plaza.

Referred to in the literature of the assassination as the "little girl in the red dress", she is seen in the Zapruder film running along the south side of Elm Street. Her father, Phillip Willis, taking 35mm color slides, can also be seen in the Zapruder film, looking forward at his daughter, perhaps calling to her. She stops suddenly just as the Presidential limousine is partially blocked by a sign between the motorcade and Abraham Zapruder's camera.

The FBI seized the Phillips photos but returned them years later. I looked at them on a light table with a loupe, immediately recognizing Dealy Plaza, the limousine, the motorcade, the Texas School Book Depository, the Pergola, the Grassy Knoll, the Triple Underpass, place names now burned into the consciousness of a scarred nation.
One Phillip Willis took a series of 12 photos of Dealy Plaza, where Kennedy was shot, in the minutes before and after the assassination. Mr. Willis' photos and testimony before the Commission appear in the report.

He was not questioned about the eighth photo, a shot of the Book Depository entrance shortly after the shooting. As Willis later pointed out, one of the men in the photo "looks so much like (Jack Ruby), it's pitiful". FBI agents questioning Willis agreed with him that the man bore a powerful resemblance to Ruby. When Willis mentioned this to the Commission, no interest was shown. When the photo was published in the Warren Report, a considerable part of the face of the Ruby look-alike had been cropped away.

- JFK Conspiracy Theories

At last, Rosemary Willis pointed out some especially interesting slides. One of them was a shot of the Pergola, above the grassy knoll, taken from her father's position on the south side of Elm Street. Through the columns, all was clear. Then Rosemary produced an old copy of Look Magazine and turned to a double page spread of the same photo published before the FBI had seized the original slide. Reproduced over facing pages, her father's photograph clearly depicted the limousine and the Pergola beyond.

"Do you notice anything unusual?" she asked.

I had noticed something. In the magazine spread, a train locomotive on the tracks was clearly visible between the columns. It was in that rail yard that three "tramps" had been arrested prior to the Kennedy assassination. [See: JFK Conspirator Wanted Every Kennedy Dead ]

But why was there a locomotive in the published picture but no locomotive in the "slide"? Rosemary explained that following Look's publication of her father's photos, FBI agents came calling, taking all her father's slides. The FBI kept the slides for years. When they were returned at last, every slide depicting the train had been doctored. The train was gone. Only the FBI could have 'removed' the depicted train --but why?

The answer to that question might well have solved the JFK murder case! Had the train not been a threat, the FBI would not have removed every trace of it. Cover-ups, of course, are intended to protect the guilty. Something about the train --where earlier well-dressed tramps had been arrested --is germane to the plot to murder JFK. Tampering with evidence is always intended to protect the guilty. By removing the evidence, the FBI was not merely obstructing justice, it was protecting the identity/identities of murderers and traitors! Why would the FBI protect an assassin's get-away? It is reasonable to conclude that the FBI was and remains a part of the plot. See more at: Exposing Lies About the FED, the CIA, the Murder of JFK

The death of Lee Harvey Oswald relieved the government of having to get a conviction. Had Oswald gone to trial, he would have walked. The government 'case' against him would never have convinced a jury. The Warren Commission was, I believe, hijacked, intimidated and/or bought.

The most obvious failure among many remains Arlen Specter's convenient and physics-defying 'Magic Bullet'. The 'Magic Bullet', found on a gurney at Parkland, perhaps the wrong gurney, cannot be placed at the scene of the crime. It would be dismissed by any competent judge for lacking bona fides.

Nevertheless, we are expected to believe that a single bullet fired from the Mannlicher-Carcano was responsible for numerous wounds --a fatal one to JFK and serious wounds to Texas Governor John Connally. None of this would have gotten by a competent defense. The plotters concluded that it was better to destroy the evidence and kill all the witnesses.

The murder of JFK may not have been the classic coup d'etat announced amid great chest beating and displays of arms and/or militia. This was, rather, a cowardly covert coup d'etat designed to hide-away the beneficiaries throughout the CIA and the Military/Industrial complex.

JFK could have, might have made the Faustian bargain with the Bush crime family that even then, via the Sr Bush, directed the CIA effort against Cuba. Instead, JFK refused to provide air cover for the abortive 'Bay of Pigs', a CIA operation. He promised to 'smash the CIA into a thousand pieces'. He denounced secret societies (Skull and Bones), threatened to break up the FED and rescind the oil depletion allowance. In reaction, powerful, ruthless 'interests' aligned against him. It was a matter of their life --his death!

Those benefiting most from the murder of JFK are surely guilty of it. Those benefiting are the CIA, the oil industry (primarily Texas), the FED. A pivotal character, Bush Sr was involved with both the CIA and the Texas Oil Industry. With some effort and the rejection of obvious cover stories, JFKs killers would most certainly have been brought to justice. The guilty are always most motivated to lie about a crime and the most pernicious lie about the JFK assassination is the magic bullet theory.

RFK threatened the same axis. Just recently, a BBC documentary established that RFKs 'killers' were most certainly CIA. Martin Luther King, of course, represented the 'black' revolution that would have rocked the establishment. He too was a threat to the CIA. Many years later, a little known self-professed 'liberal', Steve Kangas, would publish to his website, 'Liberal Resurgent' an article exposing a sordid history of of CIA crimes and interventions from Guatamala to Cuba, from Iran-Contra to Watergate. The article is entitled: The Origin of the Overclass. Kangas would be found dead in a men's room in the Pittsburgh office building owned and occupied by Richard Mellon Scaife, the spider behind the effort to impeach Bill Clinton. Kangas, it is said, committed suicide by shooting himself twice in the mouth! It is a story that one must accept upon bad faith.

All of this 'odd' history is explained too easily: coincidence. The word 'conspiracy' is denied though the body of 'conspiracy case law' would fill a library. But in a world of newspeak, 'conspiracies' are 'kooky' though they are confirmed by almost every criminal law on the books, a huge body of case law, and the words of a saint --Thomas More --who said: "I can perceive of noting but a conspiracy of rich men to procure their commodities in the name and title of the commonwealth."

Saints are silent on the subject of 'coincidence'; neither is there any case law on the subject. Reasonable people will deny such improbabilities as 'happy coincidences', especially those 'coincidences' from which only a tiny few will benefit.

It is only coincidence, we are told, that the dead Kennedys had been a threat to the CIA. It is only coincidence that activist Steve Kangas had zeroed in on conservative crimes and BS just as Scaife was bankrolling a jihad against Clinton. It was only coincidence that Bush Sr was photographed hanging around the front entrance to the Texas School Book depository just minutes prior to the murder of JFK. It was only coincidence that tramps looking like E. Howard Hunt and Frank Sturgis et al were arrested for just hanging around the rail road tracks that run north and south just behind the grassy knoll. It was just coincidence that Martin Luther King Jr seemed to have prophesied his own death with his 'I Have a Dream' speech.

"The thing I am concerned about, and so is [Deputy Attorney General Nicholas] Katzenbach, is having something issued so we can convince the public that Oswald is the real assassin." --FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, speaking on the telephone to Johnson aide Walter Jenkins two hours after Oswald was murdered by Jack Ruby, HSCA Report, vol. III, pp. 471-73. (The Warren Commission -charged with determining the truth in the JFK assassination --relied upon Hoover's FBI as its primary investigative arm.)

"We have not been told the truth about Oswald." ----Senator Richard Russell, former Warren Commission member, conversation with researcher Harold Weisberg in 1970, Whitewash IV
We have not been told the truth about the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. But we know who the liars are and we know what it is they are lying about. We also know a great deal about why they lied as well as who is protected by the lies and why. It has also been my experience that only the guilty are sufficiently motivated to lie about a crime. Those who cover up a crime do so because they are guilty. By contrast, the innocent are motivated to tell the truth or to get at the truth. The innocent must insist that truth be told if they are to remain free. It was Conan Doyle's character Sherlock Holmes who said:
"When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth!"
