TINFOILHAT: The Implosion of Building 7 Remains the Irrefutable ‘Smoking Gun‘ of a 9/11 Inside Job – LewRockwell

The dramatic thrust about 9/11 that is always the undercurrent of the mainstream narrative goes as follows: “Middle Eastern highjackers piloted American planes with American passengers into American buildings, killing thousands of Americans, so let’s make them pay!” As a support for this narrative, however, the destruction of Building 7 a full 7 hours later is at best anticlimactic. In fact, a closer examination of the evidence surrounding Building 7 begins to erode the entire narrative, and start us questioning whether the whole scene really played out the way we are being told.

If, as seems to be a growing consensus now, that all 3 buildings had been prepared for controlled demolitions in order to advance the narrative above, then perhaps Building 7, too, was meant to be hit by a plane. As it turns out, its demolition 7 hours later appears to have been damage control for a part of the plan that went wrong.  By that time, word was getting out on the ground that Building 7 was going to be taken down. Reports came to journalists and other onlookers from law enforcement officers, the fire department and others that the building was going to be taken down, and that people should leave the area.

The video below provides compelling testimony of this, since it is from a collection of people who were there as it was happening, and with no particular agenda other than to say what they were told, what they heard, or what they saw.

All that is necessary is to ask the question.

If this upsets, some people so be it.

If this is true, then it becomes the biggest hit on Gooferment propaganda since Pearl Harbor. (Referring to FDR engineering the Japanese attack to get out of the Great Depression.)

While this story is not imho “proven” yet, it certainly is more open and honest that the NIST report or other Gooferment “pronouncements” on the whole 911 disaster. NIST never shared its data or models for “security” reasons. That’s what the Gooferment always says.

Remember that the CIA created the phrase “Conspiracy Theories” to discredit any disagreement with the “official story”.

In my opinion, from my brain square in my tin foil hat, a Conspiracy Theorist merely needs to assert “inconvenient facts”, ask questions, or put “small holes” in the Gooferment propaganda balloon to have default credibility. They may be wrong. They may have been wrong on other topics in the past. BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), they deserve a “fair hearing”; not dismissal out of hand.

If there is a “conspiracy”, it’s from the “Deep State” and / or “the rich elite”. So, “We, The Sheeple” need to suspect everything they are EVER told by Gooferment politicians or bureaucrats.

As I said in my recent vaccine post, where the NY DOH bureaucrat swears that vaccines are same, I point to my personal “EXHIBIT #1” of Christie Todd Wittman, the head of the EPA, assuring us that the air around the 911 site was safe to breathe. Argh! TO quote a famous TV jurist, “I wouldn’t believe you, if your tongue came notarized.” … attributed to Judge Marilyn Milian, but may have an earlier history.

YMMV, but I think the Gooferment “explanation” of 911/7WTC is suspect at best.

TINFOILHAT: Mueller Helped Saudis Cover Up Involvement In 9/11 Attacks

Time and again, agents were called off from pursuing leads back to the kingdom’s embassy in Washington, as well as its consulate in Los Angeles, where former FBI Agent Stephen Moore headed a 9/11 task force looking into local contacts made by two of the 15 Saudi hijackers, Moore testified in an affidavit for the 9/11 lawsuit. He concluded that “diplomatic and intelligence personnel of Saudi Arabia knowingly provided material support to the two hijackers and facilitated the 9/11 plot.” Yet he and his team were not allowed to interview them, according to the suit.

TINFOILHAT: Did Saudis, CIA Fear Khashoggi – LewRockwell

The macabre case of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi raises the question: did Saudi rulers fear him revealing highly damaging information on their secret dealings? In particular, possible involvement in the 9/11 terror attacks on New York in 2001.

This does explain why the Saudis would do something so blatant.  And, explains why the Deep State is so anxious not to make a big deal about it.

My purpose in using “tin foil hat” in this blog is just to suggest the questions that no one seems to be interested in asking.

Interesting that one of the participants in this assassination just had a “traffic accident”.  Was this one like George Patton’s  — just too convenient?

Will we get any answers?  Of course, not. Does it mean that everyone should stop asking “annoying” questions?  Of course, not. When do the sheeple wake up that they are on the farm and being managed and harvested?  Of course, not.

TINFOILHAT: Need an honest inquiry into 9/11

9/11 Was an Israeli Job
How America was neoconned into World War IV

*** begin quote ***

Thanks to courageous investigators, many anomalies in the official explanation of the events of 9/11 were posted on the Internet in the following months, providing evidence that this was a false flag operation, and that Osama bin Laden was innocent, as he repeatedly declared in the Afghan and Pakistani press and on Al Jazeera.[1] The proofs of this appalling fraud have been accumulating ever since, and are now accessible to anyone willing to spend a few hours of research on the Web. (Although, while preparing this article, I noticed that Google is now making access to that research more difficult than it was five years ago, artificially prioritizing anti-conspiracy sites.)

For example, members of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth have demonstrated that it was impossible for plane crashes and jet fuel fires to trigger the collapse of the Twin Towers. Even Donald Trump understood this. In fact, speaking of “collapse” is perhaps misleading: the towers literally exploded, pulverizing concrete and projecting pieces of steel beams weighing several hundred tons hundreds of meters laterally at high speeds. The pyroclastic dust that immediately flooded through the streets, not unlike the dust from a volcano, indicates a high temperature mixture of hot gasses and relatively dense solid particles, an impossible phenomenon in a simple collapse. It is also impossible that WTC7, another skyscraper (47 stories), which had not been hit by a plane, collapsed into its own footprint at near free-fall speed, unless by “controlled demolition.”

Testimonies of firefighters recorded shortly after the events describe sequences of explosions just before the “collapse”, well below the plane impact. The presence of molten metal in the wreckage up to three weeks after the attack is inexplicable except by the presence of incompletely burned explosives. Firefighter Philip Ruvolo testified before Étienne Sauret’s camera for his film Collateral Damages (2011): “You’d get down below and you’d see molten steel—molten steel running down the channelways, like you were in a foundry—like lava.”

Aviation professionals have also reported impossibilities in the behavior of the planes. The charted speeds of the two aircraft hitting the Twin Towers, 443 mph and 542 mph, exclude these aircraft being Boeing 767s, because these speeds are virtually impossible near ground level. In the unlikely event such speeds could be attained without the aircraft falling apart, flying them accurately into the towers was mission impossible, especially by the amateur pilots blamed for the hijacking. Hosni Mubarak, a former pilot, said he could never do it. (He is not the only head of state to have voiced his doubts: Chavez and Ahmadinejad are among them.) Recall that neither of the black boxes of the jetliners was ever found, an incomprehensible situation.

And of course, there are the obvious anomalies of Shanksville and Pentagon crash sites: no plane or credible plane debris can be seen on any of the numerous photos easily available.

Inside Job or Mossad Job?

9. News agencies, including BBC and CNN, announced the destruction of WTC 7 long before it happened. One BBC reporter announced the collapse while viewers could see the still-standing building right behind her in the video. Years later, after claiming that it had lost the tapes and then found them again, BBC’s answer to this astonishing report was that everything was just “confusing and chaotic” that day. Of course, one problem with this is that the news agencies predicted the exact building, of the many damaged in the area, that would collapse. Another big problem is that no one could have possibly predicted the collapse of WTC 7 given the unprecedented and unbelievable official account for how that happened.

New 9/11 Conspiracy? NSA Whistleblowers say Agency Kept Tabs on Attackers
Sputnik News
August 4, 2015

*** begin quote ***

New revelations about the National Security Agency’s ability to track phone calls in pre-9/11 America are raising the specter of a massive government cover-up. One that could have been used to hide intelligence failures, and fuel arguments for mass domestic spying.

In 2000, Khalid al-Mihdhar was living in San Diego. One year later, he would go on to be one of the five hijackers aboard American Airlines Flight 77, steered into the Pentagon on September 11. But in the months leading up to that horrifying day, al-Mihdhar made a number of phone calls to Yemen from his California apartment.

Those calls went directly to one of Osama bin Laden’s operation centers in Sanaa, already a major target for US intelligence monitoring.

“One of the 9/11 hijackers, Khalid al-Mihdhar, made a phone call from San Diego to a known al Qaeda safehouse in Yemen,” President Obama said during a speech in 2014. “NSA saw that call, but it could not see that the call was coming from an individual already in the United States.”

But according to the testimony of agency whistleblowers like Thomas Drake and Kirk Wiebe, it would have been impossible for the agency not to have known the origin of those phone calls.

*** end quote ***

Argh!

It’s an article of faith that the Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient.

BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), if this is true, then why do we have the NSA at all.

The ONLY moral function for Government is to protect its citizens from force or fraud.

If it can perform this basic, essential, and sole function, then why fund it at all?

FBI Agent: The CIA Could Have Stopped 9/11
BY JEFF STEIN 6/19/15 AT 6:07 AM

*** begin quote ***

Updated | Mark Rossini, a former FBI special agent at the center of an enduring mystery related to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, says he is “appalled” by the newly declassified statements by former CIA Director George Tenet defending the spy agency’s efforts to detect and stop the plot.

Rossini, who was assigned to the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center (CTC) at the time of the attacks, has long maintained that the U.S. government has covered up secret relations between the spy agency and Saudi individuals who may have abetted the plot. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers who flew commercial airliners into the World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon, and a failed effort to crash into the U.S. Capitol, were Saudis.

*** and ***

Over 30 pages relating to Saudi Arabia in the report were blacked out. The Obama administration has also refused to declassify 28 pages dealing with Saudi connections to the hijackers in a joint congressional probe of the attacks.

As has been previously reported, Rossini and another FBI agent assigned to the CTC, Doug Miller, learned in January 2000 that one of the future hijackers, an Al-Qaeda operative by the name of Khalid al-Mihdhar, had a multi-entry visa to enter the U.S. By mid-summer of 2001, the CIA was repeatedly warning President George W. Bush and other White House officials that an Al-Qaeda attack was imminent. But when Miller and Rossini attempted to warn FBI headquarters that al-Mihdhar could be loose in the U.S., a CIA supervisor ordered them to remain silent.

Rossini says he is “deeply concerned” by how the agency continues to suppress information related to contacts between the CIA and Saudi Arabia, particularly when the spy agency is declassifying other portions of documents to show that it did everything possible to thwart the September 11, 2001 plot.

“There would have not been a 9/11 if Doug’s CIR [Central Intelligence Report] on al-Mihdhar was sent,” he told Newsweek in an email. “Period. End of story.

Did Certain Foreign Governments Facilitate the 9/11 Attacks?
– and why is the US government keeping the evidence a secret?
by Justin Raimondo, August 29, 2014

*** begin quote ***

“Through its investigation, the Joint Inquiry developed information suggesting specific sources of foreign support for some of the September 11 hijackers while they were in the United States. The Joint Inquiry’s review confirmed that the Intelligence Community also has information, much of which has yet to be independently verified, concerning these potential sources of support. In their testimony, neither CIA nor FBI officials were able to address definitively the extent of such support for the hijackers globally or within the United States or the extent to which such support, if it exists, is knowing or inadvertent in nature.”

The alleged Saudi connection to the 9/11 attacks has had a lot of play: it is widely believed that in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 special permission was given to fly members of the Saudi royal family out of the country when the whole nation was in lockdown. This raised suspicions, along with the incontrovertible fact that the majority of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi citizens.

OP-ED CONTRIBUTOR
The Deafness Before the Storm
By KURT EICHENWALD
Published: September 10, 2012 913 Comments

*** begin quote ***

IT was perhaps the most famous presidential briefing in history.

On Aug. 6, 2001, President George W. Bush received a classified review of the threats posed by Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network, Al Qaeda. That morning’s “presidential daily brief” — the top-secret document prepared by America’s intelligence agencies — featured the now-infamous heading: “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” A few weeks later, on 9/11, Al Qaeda accomplished that goal.

On April 10, 2004, the Bush White House declassified that daily brief — and only that daily brief — in response to pressure from the 9/11 Commission, which was investigating the events leading to the attack. Administration officials dismissed the document’s significance, saying that, despite the jaw-dropping headline, it was only an assessment of Al Qaeda’s history, not a warning of the impending attack. While some critics considered that claim absurd, a close reading of the brief showed that the argument had some validity.

That is, unless it was read in conjunction with the daily briefs preceding Aug. 6, the ones the Bush administration would not release. While those documents are still not public, I have read excerpts from many of them, along with other recently declassified records, and come to an inescapable conclusion: the administration’s reaction to what Mr. Bush was told in the weeks before that infamous briefing reflected significantly more negligence than has been disclosed. In other words, the Aug. 6 document, for all of the controversy it provoked, is not nearly as shocking as the briefs that came before it.

*** and ***

Could the 9/11 attack have been stopped, had the Bush team reacted with urgency to the warnings contained in all of those daily briefs? We can’t ever know. And that may be the most agonizing reality of all.

As usual, “we, the sheeple” never get the full story.

Not that the NYT is source of truth.

Or does one assume, for lack of any other motive, that this moves us further from “liberty” to “tyranny”.

I hope there is a special place in, a special circle of, Hell for all these.

If there were pictures or videos of an airliner hitting the Pentagon, they would have been released years ago. They would have been supplied to the 9/11 Commission.

Eleven 9/11 Questions Which Still Demand Answers
by Allen L Roland

*** begin quote ***

Warburton than makes his point ~ Crystallizing this down to a few basic principles of criminal and investigative journalism you at the BBC have failed as a fact to ask these basic questions about 9/11;

  1. Where is the film footage of the Boeing striking the Pentagon?
  2. Why haven’t your journalists asked the US authorities to see it? Why is it secret?
  3. Why haven’t you interviewed people like April Gallop who stepped through that Pentagon hole after the attack and said there was no plane there?
  4. Why haven’t you interviewed firefighters who heard explosions in the Twin Towers?
  5. Why haven’t you been able to show substantial wreckage (or photos of) from the Shanksville site?
  6. Why do you only interview explosives experts that back the official version ?
  7. Why don’t you speak to any pilots from pilots for 9/11truth ?
  8. Why don’t you speak to victim’s family members who still demand an independent investigation?
  9. Why are 5 of the alleged hijackers alive and well according to your own news reporting ? Who then did hijack the planes?
  10. Why aren’t you seeking written scientific evidence to rebut the compelling Thermite explosion claims of the teams of Richard Gage and Niels Harrit?
  11. Why are your programs “conspiracy files” on 9/11 so overtly biased as to not withstand scrutiny as fair and objective ~ and why don’t they address any of the above issues ?

Beyond this strange absence of airliner debris, there was no sign of the kind of damage to the Pentagon structure one would expect from the impact of a large airliner. This visible evidence or lack thereof may also have been apparent to the secretary of defense [Donald Rumsfeld], who in an unfortunate slip of the tongue referred to the aircraft that slammed into the Pentagon as a “missile” … Lt. Col. Karen U. Kwiatkowski, PhD, U.S. Air Force (ret) – Former Political-Military Affairs Officer in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. Also served on the staff of the Director of the National Security Agency.
