Section 1: Air force stand-down

1:1  It has become popular mythology  in the media that fighter jets were
scrambled to intercept the hijacked planes. This is completely untrue as
the following research shows.

So on Sept 11, 2001 - Why were no fighter jets scrambled, and why has a
cover up story been concocted?

In the unlikely event that the airfare failed through incompetence,
(not once but 4 times! ) where is the major inquiry?

I have seen bigger inquiries into car crashes at race tracks.


Section 2: Complicit behavior of G.W.Bush

It has become common mythology in the media that George W. Bush was at Booker Elementary School when
he learned of the first WTC crash. This is a lie. Why is Bush lying about where he was, and what he knew?

2:1  Guilty for 9-11 Section 3: Bush in the open by Illarion Bykov and Jared Israel.

And why do authorities keep telling us that nobody had ever conceived of planes being used in this manner,

2:2   Bush Was Warned of Hijackings Before 9/11; Lawmakers Want Public Inquiry ABC News May 16 2002

when the 1994 extract from Time magazine, quoted in the previous article demonstrates that the potential
problem had been recognized for decades?

This is not the only lie Bush has told about his movements that morning. See how many times he has
changed his story.

2:5  The President as Incompetent Liar: Bush's Claim that he Saw TV Footage of 1st Plane Hitting WTC
Comments by Jared Israel [Posted 12 September 2002]

Clinton was impeached for lying about an affair. Bush is lying about where he was, what he was doing and
what he knew, during the crucial period between 8.45 and 9 AM on Sept 11.

2:6   Why did the President - after being told "America is under attack" continue to listen to schoolchildren
reading for another 25 minutes ? Why was he cheering, smiling and joking even as it was known that at
least one more hijacked plane was on the loose ? View the TV footage which proves treason at the top level.


Section 3: The Fictitious Hijackers

If 19 Arabs hijacked the planes, why are there no Arabic names on any of the passenger lists? If they used non Arabic
aliases, which of the "innocents" on the lists are alleged to be the hijackers?

Passenger and crew list for AA 11 (first WTC crash.)

AA 77 (Pentagon crash)

UAL 175 (2nd WTC crash)

UAL 93 (Pennsylvania crash)

If they are alleged to have been using non- Arabic aliases (19 obviously Arabic men got on board using non-Arabic
ID, with 100% success rate ?), why did the FBI claim that they were traced through the use of credit cards to buy
tickets in their own names?

3:5   If 9 of the alleged hijackers were searched before boarding, as claimed in this article why is there no airport security footage of them? How did they
(allegedly) get on board with knives, guns, AND electronic guidance systems, while being searched, but
avoiding security cameras and not
being on the passenger lists?

What aliases were they alleged to be using when they were searched, and
if they were not using aliases, why are they not on the passenger lists?

What of reports that some of the alleged hijackers are still alive, and
had nothing to do with the attacks ?

3:11  According to this article the FBI now
claims that the hijackers used gas to subdue the passengers and crew. If they used gas they would have been affected themselves - unless
they had masks. The story gets better all the time. They somehow got on board with masks, gas, guns, knives and electronic guidance systems,
in spite of being searched, didn't show up on the airport security cameras, and were not on the passenger lists. They left flight manuals in Arabic
in rented cars outside the airport ( last minute brushing up on the way there, about how to fly the things!) and then crashed the planes in breath
taking displays of skilled piloting. Just to make sure we knew who they were, their passports were conveniently found in spite of fiery crashes
which incinerated the planes and occupants. So they got on board with false IDs but used their real passports ?

If the mythical Arab hijackers really were on the planes and airport security systems failed due to incompetence ( not once but 19 times! ),
where is the major inquiry? I have seen bigger inquiries into racehorse doping scandals.


Section 4: More oddities

Why the official story concerning the hijacking of AA11 (first WTC crash) cannot possibly be true.

Section 5: Where is the evidence against Bin laden?

Why is it that the US government doesn't feel confident enough of it's
case against Bin laden to lay any formal charges, but keeps " finding"
convenient video " confession" tapes ? Probably because new video
technology makes it impossible to distinguish between a real video
confession and a fake.

(Read the section called "Evidence please !")


Section 6: Insider trading reveals high level foreknowledge

In the first few hours after the attacks, it was reported that investigators were already looking into huge
volumes of insider trading on airline stocks in the weeks leading up to the attacks.

Why has this story since completely disappeared? Do authorities seriously expect us to believe that
more than a year later, they still do not know who was responsible? Should not alarm bells have been
ringing BEFORE the attacks with these record volumes of trading?

If the executive director of the CIA had previously managed the firm which handled much of the trade,
are we seriously expected to believe that he doesn't know who was responsible?

Section 7: The pentagon frame up

7:1   It is alleged that that American Airlines 77 ( a hijacked Boeing 757 ) crashed into the Pentagon.
A Boeing 757 is a very large aircraft with a wingspan of 125 ft and a length of 155 ft. So how did it make an
initial hole 12 ft wide, collapsing only about a 35 ft depth of the outer ring of the building - and not leave any wreckage outside ?
This photo of the damage to the Pentagon wall proves that whatever crashed into the pentagon
was NOT AA 77, which demonstrates the Pentagon attack to have been a self - inflicted frame up.

the pre planned attack came to light ?


Section 9: U.S. and Bin Laden co-operate behind the scenes.

The new story is that they allegedly feared Bin Laden so much that they wanted to get him first.
So why didn't they arrest him when they had the chance in July 2001?

Are we seriously expected to believe that burning kerosene towards the
top of the building ( heat travels upwards ) somehow caused both towers
to neatly implode in a manner identical to that of a controlled
demolition ?
Where is the inquiry? I have seen bigger inquiries into suburban house fires. Why is discussion of  the possibility of a controlled implosion completely taboo? Why do authorities keep inventing ridiculous stories about burning jet fuel melting steel?

Probing 9/11: Show us the money

By Timothy J. Burger
Monday, March 3, 2003 Posted: 4:41 PM EST (2141 GMT)

The panel charged with figuring out why the FBI, the CIA and other federal agencies were unable to stop the Sept. 11 terrorist plot is about to seek a huge budget boost.

Sources tell TIME that commission chairman Thomas Kean has concluded that the $3 million allotted in legislation passed late last year is not nearly enough. He is expected to ask Congress for $12 million to $15 million. That's a fivefold increase, but still far less than the $50 million allotted for the probe of last month's space-shuttle catastrophe.

The panel got off to a slow start last year when its first chairman, Henry Kissinger, resigned rather than comply with financial-disclosure and potential-conflict requirements. Now, three months after the commission was signed into law, most of its members still don't have the required security clearances -- including Kean, though sources tell TIME his is expected to come through soon.

Kean is contemplating a staff of at least 50 divided into several task forces that will sift through classified documents and interview current and former officials. One reason for the increased budget: the commission wants to hire its own staff and not rely on officials on loan from the very agencies under investigation.

"They want people independent of the agency," said one source. "Everybody's got oxen to grind."

The commission also has yet to receive a copy of the highly classified 800-plus-page report from last year's joint House-Senate inquiry on 9/11. Meanwhile, Congress is still wrangling with intelligence and law-enforcement agencies over how much of its report can be made public.
