ANOTHER LOOK AT 9-11
MORE PNAC PLOTTING?

By: Ted Lang

Increasingly, evidence continues to mount against our own government. Parts of what were formerly viewed as disjointed, confusing and disconnected pieces of a puzzle are beginning to fall into place. The Abu Ghraib prison torture scandal was bad enough, but the Bush administration’s cover-up is much worse. The same can be said for the 9-11 Commission that never really addressed how it was possible for our skies to be so vulnerable on that day. We are to believe that nary a jet fighter plane was available to protect US? And need we again refer to the FBI cover-ups of downed flights AA587 and TWA 800?

Amazing, isn’t it? And the only plane that didn’t reach its target was the one that was on its way to Washington, DC? Of course, the story is that the passengers "rolled" and attacked the terrorist pilots. However, I remember a fellow worker speaking on the phone that morning and then loudly stating: "Another airliner was just shot down over Pennsylvania!" I’ve decided to revise my thinking on the fate of Flight 93 – I’ve decided that the plane was indeed shot down, because no one will ever convince me that four hijacked airliners were in our unfriendly skies for over one hour with absolutely no military response. Why have the Flight 93 black boxes been made to disappear in the bowels of FBI headquarters?

Considering Abu Ghraib, the 9-11 Commission cover-up, the Flight 93 cover-up, and all the other government cover-ups, and now the additional scandal identified as the spying and intelligence-manipulating Israeli lobby, AIPAC, which has virtually bribed and purchased every member of Congress, as well as the White House as confirmed by retiring Senator Fritz Hollings, we should not be limited by our own personal standards of morality.

We would never stoop to the astonishingly low levels of immorality to which our bought-and-paid-for politicians have prostituted themselves. We should, in fact, think the very worst of them. They are traitors for doing the bidding of Israel and leading US into an unnecessary and deadly war. Over one thousand of our military have been killed, and 15,000 more wounded, maimed and crippled for life. And 30,000 Iraqis, most of them innocent non-combatant civilians, have been slaughtered.

All this unnecessary misery and carnage has been planned and manipulated by a Jewish cabal loyal to Israel inside and in total control of the Pentagon. How could they ever have been loyal to our nation when they knowingly plotted and planned to utilize the anger of Americans thereby capitalizing on the terrorist acts of September 11, 2001 to benefit only Israel? And four star General Eric Shinseki, the Army’s former Chief-of -Staff, warned the Bush administration and his Zionist cabal that at least 250,000 troops would be needed, given a justifiable reason to invade Iraq. And just what does that mean?

It means that any force numbering less than this "show-of-force" strength would encourage more and continuing armed resistance, thereby raising the death and injury toll amongst our own military! Now, if this isn’t treason, then please explain to me what is! We were provided with manufactured, deliberately false intelligence, obviously by some collaboration between the Jewish lobby and Israeli intelligence’s involvement and manipulation, thereby committing our nation and its military to war that didn’t ever have to be fought – a clear example of a dangerous entangling alliance. And now this Jewish lobby and its allegiance to Israel and Israeli intelligence’s manipulative agenda is plotting yet another unnecessary and potentially deadly war with Iran!

James Petras, writing for Rebeliņn and carried on Information Clearing House, in his September 7th article said it best: "The FBI investigation into Israeli espionage agents in the Pentagon is part of a major struggle between prominent Zionists in the Pentagon and the US security apparatus. Ever since the Bush regime came to power there has been a fierce political and organizational war between the Pentagon Zionists and their militarist collaborators, on the one hand, and the professional military and intelligence apparatus, on the other. This conflict has manifested itself in a series of major issues including the war in the Middle East, the rationale for war, the relationship between Israel and the US, the strategy for empire, as well as tactical issues like the size of military force needed for colonial wars and the nature of colonial occupation. From 9/11/2001 to the invasion of Iraq, the Pentagon Zionists and the civilian militarists had the upper hand: they marginalized the CIA and established their own intelligence services to "cook the data", they pushed through the doctrine of sequential wars, beginning with Afghanistan and Iraq and projecting wars with Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries. The Pentagon Zionists increased Israel’s power in the Middle East and promoted its expansionist colonization of Palestine, at the expense of US soldiers, budget busting expenditures and CIA objections."

Petras in his article, "Treason in High Places: Pentagon Zionists, AIPAC and Israel," then comes to his sobering point: "Israel has for decades subverted US foreign policy to serve its interests through the organized power of major Jewish organizations in the US. What is new in the current Pentagon spy case is that rather than pressuring from the outside to secure favorable policies for Israel, the Israel loyalists are in top positions within the government making strategic decisions about US global policy and providing their Israeli handlers with secret documents pertaining to top level discussions in the White House on questions of war and peace. Today the politics of Pentagon and AIPAC espionage is especially dangerous – because what is at stake is a new US and/or Israeli war on Iran which will ignite the entire Middle East. [Emphasis added.]

The move to high-level spying by top Zionist policy-makers like Douglas Feith, Elliott Abrams, Paul Wolfowitz and others in the Bush Administration is the culmination of a long series of strategic policies promoted by AIPAC designed to enhance Israeli expansionist goals in the Middle East."

On August 30th, Zogby, recognized as America’s leading pollster, offered on its website that, "On the eve of a Republican National Convention invoking 9-11 symbols, sound bites and imagery, half (49.3%) of New York City residents and 41% of New York citizens overall say that some of our leaders ‘knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act,’ according to the poll conducted by Zogby International. The poll of New York residents was conducted from Tuesday August 24 through Thursday August 26, 2004."

A +/- 3.5 margin for sampling error notwithstanding, that’s an outrageously high number, which, for all practical purposes, constitutes a resounding "no confidence" vote that the people are registering as concerns the Bush administration. Of course, I find little to no value in polls – results are a factor of how the question or questions are framed and where and when they are asked. New Yorkers, for the most part, are not supportive of Republicans, and hefty Republican references to 9-11 to glorify Bush will never acquire air speed in the Apple.

But in spite of all of that, it still represents a disastrously low level of public support for Bush and his neoconservative warmongering cabal. The article continues, "The poll is the first of its kind conducted in America that surveys attitudes regarding US government complicity in the 9-11 tragedy. Despite the acute legal and political implications of this accusation, nearly 30% of registered Republicans and over 38% of those who described themselves as ‘very conservative’ supported the claim."

The Zogby effort then offers: "Less than two in five (36%) believe that the 9/11 Commission had ‘answered all the important questions about what actually happened on September 11th,’ and two in three (66%) New Yorkers (and 56.2% overall) called for another full investigation of the ‘still unanswered questions’ by Congress or Elliot Spitzer, New York’s Attorney General." [Emphasis added.]

American outrage was exploited, and the recognition of the criticality of 9-11 becomes more and more apparent as the hook that was used by the seemingly Jewish conspiracy that runs the Pentagon to launch not only the Iraqi war, but now exposes their intentions against Iran, Syria, Egypt and the entire Middle East. This leads many Americans to believe that 9-11 was known to be an upcoming event as Zogby pointed out, and capitalized upon as America’s 21st Century Pearl Harbor. There is indeed very strong evidence that the impending terrorist attack that was 9-11 was known to be coming by officials at the highest levels within the Bush administration.

Alex Jones on his website, Prison Planet, co-authored an article September 8th with Joseph Watson entitled, "War Games Were Cover for the Operational Execution of 9/11": "For almost three years since 9/11, independent researchers have stockpiled individual smoking guns which prove that the official version of events was not only a lie but operationally impossible. However, no single smoking gun has yet been forwarded to explain why air defenses categorically reversed Standard Operating Procedures and failed to respond to hijacked jetliners. Until now. More and more individuals are looking at the facts and highlighting exercise drills that took place on the morning of 9/11." [Emphasis added.]

Jones in his piece provides an astonishing laundry list of "exercises" and "simulation drills" that were all oddly scheduled for that particular infamous day. Why that day? And of course, the simple explanation could be yet another example of mere government stupidity; but when one now becomes cognizant of the AIPAC treachery, the fraudulent intelligence used to lie US into a totally unnecessary and a much worse-than-useless war, that secretive plotting, conniving, neoconservative PNAC cabal begins to emit the reeking stench of planned and premeditated treason.

Zogby again: "W. David Kubiak, executive director of 911Truth.org, the group that commissioned the poll, expressed genuine surprise that New Yorkers’ belief in the administration’s complicity is as high or higher than that seen overseas. ‘We’re familiar with high levels of 9/11 skepticism abroad where there has been open debate of the evidence for US government complicity. On May 26th the Toronto Star reported a national poll showing that 63% of Canadians are also convinced US leaders had ‘prior knowledge’ of the attacks yet declined to act. There was no US coverage of this startling poll or the facts supporting the Canadians’ conclusions, and there has been virtually no debate on the victim families’ scores of still unanswered questions. I think these numbers show that most New Yorkers are fed up with the silence, and that politicians trying to exploit 9/11 do so at their own peril. The 9/11 case is not closed and New York’s questions are not going away.’" [Emphasis added.]

The organization that sponsored Zogby’s poll, 911Truth.org, is initiating further inquiries into the 9-11 terrorism so blatantly covered up by our corrupt politicians. Sadly, all that such citizens groups can hope for is that someone in American government will have some modicum of integrity and honesty to do right by the more than 3,000 victims who died as the result of a brutal "political arrangement" seized upon as an opportunity to make the world safe for Israel.

Alex Jones again: "It is clear that at least five, if not six, training exercises were in operation in the days leading up to and on the morning of 9/11. This meant that NORAD radar screens showed as many as 22 hijacked airliners at the same time. NORAD had been briefed that this was part of an exercise drill and therefore normal reactive procedure was forestalled and delayed."

Jones continues: "The drill scenario also explains the comment made by air traffic control personnel which was featured in a July 2004 BBC television report." Jones summarizes and references that report, which quotes an air traffic controller querying on that fateful day, "Is this real world or an exercise?"

How could so many drills, radar systems, and defensive response advanced warning systems be so totally compromised, AND just coincidentally occur at the same time that 19 Arab adolescents with box cutters took such terrific advantage of this planned and deliberately orchestrated abandonment of ALL our defense systems?

Where could such a major coordinative effort ONLY have been originated if not directly from inside the Pentagon, where all such military exercises and war games are planned and executed? All military plans and actions emanate from the Pentagon, and who’s in charge over there? Who runs the show, and for what purpose? Perhaps a Congressional investigation is in order.

And if one doesn’t believe in conspiracy theories because they are somewhat of a stretch, then perhaps we’d all be more interested in hearing additional arguments for a "coincidence theory" concerning 9-11, especially as regards Pentagon planning for the September 11 drills and the full scale deployment in New York City of FEMA on September 10, 2001.
