911: MORAL COWARDS AND FBI ADMISSION
� 2007 - NewsWithViews.com
"One of our most precious freedoms is the right to learn the truth. The common man is in danger of losing that right when 90 percent of his mental food is prepared for him every day by those who select the news to prove a point -- and that point either reactionary or Marxist." --Henry A. Wallace (1888-1965), American Statesman
My recent column on 911 brought in a handful of emails calling me all kinds of colorful names and worn out labels. It never ceases to amaze me when people send email accusing me of saying all sorts of things in one of my columns that aren't there, i.e., "Read your most recent article about 9-11 on NewWithViews.com. Mr. Gage does not speak for all engineers and architects." Did I say that in my column? No, I wrote, "This slide presentation is endorsed by dozens of others in his profession (list on slides 3 & 4) demanding a real investigation." How about this work of higher intellect about my column: "You need to start blaming Islam, illegal immigrants, liberal Democrats and stop blaming America. You sound like Harry Reid!!!! You probably have his picture hanging on your wall!!!!" One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest....going once, going twice.
This was mail from one friend to another referring to this web site which contains the factual statements of family members, first responders and survivors regarding the government's version of 911- you know - people who were actually there and survived:
"Kim, this site is profoundly irresponsible. So too are all the people who would lend their names to it. If they really did say the things that are quoted on this site and were quoted in context, I would question their sanity or at least their motives.....Let me say this in the plainest of terms - Anyone who believes that 9/11 is an inside job or a conspiracy of the U.S. Government is either insane or incredibly naiive, misinformed and misguided. This issue warrants no more discusion from me. It is a complete waste of my time. The events of 9/11 happened just as reported. There may be a few crazies out there who see conspiracy where there is none, but the overwhelmingly vast majority of people who are professionals do not give these people the time of day....Satan must really love the craziness that is going on in the world right now, this 9/11 conspiracy nonsense being part of that craziness. I contine being disheartened to know that you actually buy in to this nonsense in any way."
Spoken like someone who hasn't done one single minute of real research. His words echo spin masters Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Glen Beck and other very high paid mouth pieces. Let me point out a couple of things here you may not know:
1. How can any of us forget the heart wrenching phone calls from passengers who perished that day? Phone calls to loved ones. The pain, anguish, fear and courage -- all conveyed via cell phones from these hijacked planes. Or were they? David Ray Griffin has authored several books on 911; a must read by Griffin is Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory. In an October 12, 2007, article Griffin drops a bomb shell:
"The most famous of the reported calls from the flights supposedly came from Barbara Olson, the well-known commentator on CNN who was married to Ted Olson, who was then the US solicitor general. Olson reported that his wife had called him twice from American Airlines Flight 77, stating that hijackers with knives and boxcutters had taken over the plane. Besides providing evidence of hijackers, this call also provided the only evidence that Flight 77 was still aloft (it had disappeared from radar and there had been reports of an airliner crash nearby). Although Olson went back and forth on the question of whether his wife had used a cell phone or an onboard phone, he finally settled on the latter.
"In the first edition, I challenged this claim on the basis of evidence from American Airlines that their Boeing 757 (which is what Flight 77 was) had no onboard phones. After publishing the book, however, I became worried, because of some new evidence, that the statement from American Airlines, made in 2004, had referred only to their 757s at that time - that their 757s in 2001 may well have had onboard phones. So I published a retraction, saying that the claim was uncertain.
"That retraction, however, evoked new evidence, including a statement made by American Airlines in 2006 that their 757s in 2001 had had no onboard phones, so that anyone calling out from Flight 77 had needed to use a cell phone. Barbara Olson, therefore, could not have used a passenger-seat phone. That left open, of course, the possibility that Ted Olson was correct when he said that his wife had used her cell phone.
"However, the evidence from the Moussaoui trial ruled out this possibility. In its report on AA 77, it listed one attempted call from Barbara Olson, which was "unconnected" and hence lasted "0 seconds." This was an astounding discovery. The FBI is part of the Department of Justice. And yet it had undercut the testimony of the DOJ's former solicitor general, saying in effect that the two calls that he reported had never happened. The implication is that unless Ted Olson had, like Deena Burnett, been duped, he had lied. Although this should have produced front-page headlines, it has thus far not been reported by any mainstream publication. The Revised and Updated Edition of "Debunking 9/11 Debunking" provides the documentation for these reports from American Airlines and the FBI, which pretty thoroughly undermine the idea that any of the reported calls were genuine: If the cell phone calls were faked, why should we believe that the reported calls from onboard phones were genuine?" Griffin has much more to say on this; click here.
2. The time line on 911 is crucial - especially for Bush; see here: "When Did Bush First Learn of the Attacks?" We know from historical live feed that Bush made a number of statements at the Booker Elementary School and after being informed about this attack, he sat there and continued to read about goats for another seven minutes. However, I have found by doing research, that questions asked using the Freedom of Information Act produced results that beg for answers. The presidential limousine is equipped with secure STU-III phones, not to mention a national security staff at the White House and all the intelligence apparatus money can buy. Yet, Bush seems not to have known what millions of people were watching live on TV?
And from this accurate time line: "Bush's Confused Recollection. Bush's own recollection of the first crash only complicates the picture. Less than two months after the attacks, Bush made the preposterous claim that he had watched the first attack as it happened on live television. This is the seventh different account of how Bush learned about the first crash (in his limousine, from Loewer, from Card, from Rove, from Gottesman, from Rice, from television). On December 4, 2001, Bush was asked: "How did you feel when you heard about the terrorist attack?" Bush replied, "I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower-the TV was obviously on. And I used to fly, myself, and I said, well, there's one terrible pilot. I said, it must have been a horrible accident. But I was whisked off there, I didn't have much time to think about it." There was no film footage of the first attack until at least the following day."
What about any calls Bush received in his limo on the way to the Booker Elementary School? A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request was made to the Defense Information Systems Agency for any and all visual transmissions to Bush before he ever got to that school. The FOIA was denied, but confirmed the records do exist, but are under control of the White House and the Executive Branch has no obligation to give them up. You can view the request and links to the official denial here. This raises more serious questions.
3. Sibel Edmonds is one of those rare individuals who believes in the truth no matter how painful. She is an FBI whistleblower who knows a lot about 911. Ms. Edmonds has been gagged and threatened by your government, but now she is ready to name names no matter the consequences:
"Attention CBS 60 Minutes: we've got a huge scoop for you. If you want it. Remember the exclusive story you aired on Sibel Edmonds, originally on October 27th, 2002, when she was not allowed to tell you everything that she heard while serving as an FBI translator after 9/11 because she was gagged by the rarely-invoked "States Secret Privilege"? Well, she's still gagged..."But if you'll sit down and talk with her for an unedited interview, she has now told The Brad Blog during an exclusive interview, she will now tell you everything she knows. Everything she hasn't been allowed to tell since 2002, about the criminal penetration of the FBI where she worked, and at the Departments of State and Defense; everything she heard concerning the corruption and illegal activities of several well-known members of Congress; everything she's aware of concerning information omitted and/or covered up in relation to 9/11. All of the information gleaned from her time listening to and translating wire-taps made prior to 9/11 at the FBI."
4. If the government has nothing to hide, release all unedited, raw footage the FBI is holding (dozens of videos) of the Murrah Building in OKC and the Pentagon. As the Bush Administration refuses to do so, it simply begs the question: Why not? There are no more on-going investigations and the blanket "national security" is bull at this point in time.
5 - Still no answer on the missing Pentagon trillions: "Rumsfeld Buries Admission of Missing 2+ Trillion Dollars in 9/10/01 Press Conference. "On September 10, 2001, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld held a press conference to disclose that over $2,000,000,000,000 in Pentagon funds could not be accounted for. Rumsfeld stated: "According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions. "Such a disclosure normally would have sparked a huge scandal. However, the commencement of the attack on New York City and Washington in the morning would assure that the story remained buried." Where is all that money?
I received one email from a real gentleman named David, who believes the government's fairy tale, but he's honest about it and I think does want the truth. However, like a whole lot of Americans, he doesn't want to believe anything other than the official story. Just like the families who lost loved ones. Just like former military who have served this country, some under Bush. No one wants to believe that rogue elements within this government would allow such a monstrous slaughter of humans and not lift a finger - or worse, have orchestrated events to allow it to happen for plausible deniability. It took me well over a year before I said to myself: "There's just too much here to ignore and, groan, what a lot of research this is going to require." However, my family didn't die that day, so I should complain about doing more research?
During a recent event featuring Bill Clinton, some folks from the 911 truth movement disrupted the event and this former president who brought shame to the Office of the President, assumed his Ebinezer Scrooge with the bony fingers posture and demanded, "How dare you?" Interesting question, Mr. Clinton because I say, how dare you shame this nation when the truth came out that you were getting your Johnson blown by an intern in the Oval Office. How dare you flaunt your sluttish behavior in front of the world shaming our nation. How dare you, Mr. Clinton, sell our most sensitive defense secrets to our mortal enemy, the Communist Chinese. You, Mr. Clinton, should have been tried for treason instead of just being a tramp with a rape accusation hanging over your head. How dare you.
I am not in favor of disrupting events such as we've been seeing, but I know it's from frustration by those trying to get the media to do their job and follow up on the reasonable questions about 911 from family members and survivors. As I have said many times, there is a great deal of garbage, disinformation and sensationalist trash on the Internet about 911. I have done my level best to provide what I believe are the most credible sources for those who still have the ability to think and believe in truth and justice. As this is very complicated and time is an issue, for those who sincerely wish to learn the facts, I respectfully recommend the following: Griffin's book, The Revised and Updated Edition of Debunking 9/11 Debunking; 911: Press for Truth. 911 widows and their fight for the truth, DVD; 911 Mysteries: Demolitions video, short trailer, then below click on 'Watch this film now; Verifiable statements from family, first responders, ex-military, etc.
I say those who call family members, first responders, FDNY personnel, former commercial airline pilots and just average Americans who ask reasonable questions, nut cases and worse, and who haven't done a single minute of research, you are gutless cowards. Because to find out the truth would require you to step up to the plate and do the morally right thing: join millions of us in demanding a new, unbiased investigation and a grand jury and that would disturb the old comfort zone. Can't have that, now can we?
(I will be on Jeff Rense's radio show, Tuesday, November 6, 2007 at 8:00 pm PST, 10:00 pm CST and 11:00 pm EST. I am going to discuss the conviction yesterday of my friend, Sherry Jackson; she was convicted on four counts of willful failure to file tax returns. Please tune in because what I have to say is very important. If you haven't listened before, you might get connected a few minutes ahead of time so you don't miss out.)
