Analyzing September 11
In the months since the attacks
of September 11 a great deal of information has surfaced that
goes directly against the scenario that has been put forth by
the American government and promoted by the major media. A number
of researchers and commentators can be heard that make the claim
that leaders at the highest levels of the United States Government
possessed definitive knowledge of the impending September 11
attacks, and that these leaders allowed the attacks to take place.
The voices making these claims come from across the entire
political spectrum and although some are speaking out for political
reasons others, including a number of conservatives, are speaking
out only because they want to know the truth. From the Left people
like former LAPD officer Mike
Ruppert, judicial investigator Sherman
Skolnick, author Gore
Vidal and Representative Cynthia
McKinney challenge the official version of events, and from
the Right radio talk show host Alex
Jones, author and researcher Joel
Skousen, Representative Ron
Paul and attorney David
Schippers head up a long list of conservatives who realize
that the whole truth is far from revealed.
The courageous few who dare to dissent from the government's
version of events know that they are treading dangerous ground,
but they also know that they have a great deal of evidence that
supports their point of view: Evidence of insider trading through
a CIA connected brokerage house meant to profit from the attack
evidence of high-level orders prohibiting Air Force interception
of the final flights that crashed into the south tower of the
World Trade Center and the Pentagon (2);
evidence that U.S. Naval Intelligence possessed knowledge of
the plan of attack (3),
as well as the overwhelming circumstantial evidence that the
U.S. Government had been planning a military campaign against
Afghanistan for a number of years prior to September 11 (4).
Add to this the evidence that the U.S. Government was warned
many times by a number of foreign and domestic intelligence sources
that an Al-Qaeda attack was imminent (5)
and compare it with the evidence that the Bush administration,
the Justice Department and high-ranking FBI officials had blocked
investigations of Al-Qaeda, Bin Ladin and his family in the months
leading up to September 11 (6).
Conspiracy fact-finders have more than enough material
to justify their skepticism of the "official version"

2. Lack of Air Force response to the
In October of 1999 the Learjet that carried
pro golfer Payne Stewart lost radio contact with ground controllers.
Twenty-four minutes later the FAA asked the Air Force
to intercept and escort the unresponsive aircraft and two F-15s
were diverted from their routine patrol to check on the
jet. Within minutes the F-15s had intercepted the Learjet and
were peering into the cockpit from 50 feet away. (USA
10/26/99, by Alan Levin)
On September 11 Flight 11 lifted off from Boston's
Logan Airport at 7:59 a.m. By 8:28 a.m., ground controllers
in New England knew that Flight 11 from Boston had been hijacked.
The FAA was notified and then NORAD received word at about 8:38
a.m. Flight 11 crashed into the WTC at 8:48 a.m. By this time
Flight 175 had been long off course and unresponsive as well.
At 8:55 Flight 77 lost contact and veered off course. At 9:03
Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower of the WTC. At 9:45 Flight
77 crashed into the Pentagon.
There were twenty-five minutes for the Air
Force to intercept Flight 175, and an hour and seven minutes
to intercept Flight 77. The government claims that interception
attempts were made from Otis and Langley Air Force bases, but
that these attempts failed. The hijacked aircraft were
never intercepted and escorted as was the Learjet carrying
Payne Stewart. After the Pentagon was struck then it was finally
decided to scramble jets from Andrews AFB (ten miles from the
Pentagon) giving them the order to shoot to kill any more incoming
aircraft, but the damage had been done and the attacks were finished.
Why did it take so long to scramble jets from Andrews which is
tasked with protecting the Pentagon and the White House? One
possibility is that Air Force jets, including those in the air
on the numerous routine patrols, were ordered not to interfere
until the attacks were over. The lone exception of course is
Flight 93, that would have landed safely with captured terrorists
after the successful passenger revolt, if it had not gone down
mysteriously over Pennsylvania.

Vreeland claims to be a former U.S. Navy lieutenant who was assigned
to the Office of Naval Intelligence. He claims that in late 2000
he was involved in transporting top secret documents from Russia
to Canadian and U.S. intelligence agents. Vreeland claims that
this transfer failed and that after opening the pouch he found
documentary evidence that U.S. Intelligence knew about a future
terrorist attack on the United States. Vreeland was later arrested
by Canadian authorities in December of 2000 on credit card fraud
charges. Vreeland claims that in August of 2001 he penned a letter
from his cell, based on his knowledge of the contents of the
pouch, that something would occur involving the "World
Trade Center, the Sears Tower, the Pentagon and the White House."
He wrote "let one happen stop the rest!!!"

September 11 a massive military buildup took place in the Middle
East. Two U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups arrived off the
coast of Pakistan, a "training exercise" called Operation
Bright Star began in Egypt involving 17,000 U.S. troops and 23,000
NATO troops, and a British exercise called Operation Swift Sword
involving 23,000 British troops in Oman was set to begin as well.
When the attacks of September 11 occurred the military buildup
in the Middle East was already underway.

with the limitations imposed upon him. In August of 2001 he was
compelled to retire because of an incident from the summer of
2000 involving the "theft" of his briefcase. It was
lost for only a few hours but contained highly sensitive documents
(New York Times
article, David Johnston, 8-19-2001). O'Neill retired because
of the pressure of a threatened internal FBI investigation and
was promptly given a job as head of security for the World Trade
Center. O'Neill died at the WTC on September 11, his second day
on the job (CNN
article). What would the outspoken John O'Neill, the FBI's
former chief of international terrorism, have said about the
government's failure to prevent the attacks if he had survived
past the 11th of September?
II. Osama Bin Laden Had Some Help
from a post
at the LibertyForum on January 9, 2005)

Only. Not for Commercial Use.
Osama bin Laden - - Had Some Help
According to the U.S. government and the 9/11 Commission, an
Islamic man in Afghanistan, known as Osama bin Laden, used his
terrorist organization, known as al Qaeda (haters of freedom)
to carry out the terrorist attacks on September 11. Let's look
at what was involved in bringing about one of the most diabolical
terrorist attacks in history.
Osama bin Laden
- freedom fighter in Afghanistan,
established military training camps in Afghanistan and forced
out the Soviets with the full support and funding of the U.S.
Congress and the CIA. Al Qaeda fighters were later used in the
Balkans by the Clinton Administration to overthrow Serbia.
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld - presides
over NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, which
uses ground-based radar, airborne radar, satellites, fighter
aircraft, "proven command structures" and intelligence
capabilities to enforce control of the skies over the United
States and Canada.
The President of the United States George W. Bush -
presides over the Pentagon, NORAD, and all intelligence agencies.
Dennis Hastert (R,IL), Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives
- has oversight over executive agencies
to ensure that taxpayer money is used legally and appropriately.
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) - collects, evaluates,
and disseminates foreign intelligence to assist the President
and senior U.S. Government policymakers in making decisions relating
to national security.
Vice President of the United States Dick Cheney - directed
the response to 9/11 from the White House emergency bunker.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) -
the investigative arm of the Dept. of Justice, responsible to
protect and defend the United States against terrorist and foreign
intelligence threats and to uphold and enforce the criminal federal
laws of the United States.
The National Security Agency (NSA) -
part of the Dept. of Defense, responsible for the collection
and analysis of global communications, including radio and the
internet. Operates Echelon to monitor civilian telephone, fax
and data traffic.
John Ashcroft, Attorney General of the United States, Dept
of Justice (DOJ)
- investigates and prosecutes
violations of federal laws, represents the interests of the president.
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) -
responsible for the safety of civil aviation, regulates and controls
the air traffic system, regulates commercial air space.
* Fifteen of the nineteen alleged hijackers were able to obtain
visas at the U.S Consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia so they could
enter the United States. Three used Visa Express where no
interviews were required. The Jeddah Consulate had previously
been used by the CIA to bring bin Laden recruits into the U.S.
for training, to be returned to Afghanistan to fight the Soviets.
* In June of 2001, the FAA rescinded a 40-year-old rule allowing
pilots to carry guns into the cockpit.
* Sec. of Defense Rumsfeld and the Joint Chiefs of Staff changed
the long-standing rules on how hijackings should be handled on
June 1, 2001. Effective after that date, NORAD had to
obtain approval directly from Rumsfeld in order to respond to
off-course aircraft - which as a matter of routine occurred 67
times in the 8 months prior to 9/11. On the morning of 9/11,
Rumsfeld was in his "usual intelligence briefing" in
the Pentagon and "continued his briefing"  until
he smelled smoke in his office.
* After the alleged al Qaeda operatives
entered the U.S.,
they entered flight schools
at several different locations. Several attended U.S. military
training facilities, such as the Defense Language School at Lackland
Air Force Base in Texas, the Air War College at Maxwell Air Force
Base in Alabama, and the Pensacola Naval Air Station in Florida.
* Dennis Hastert, Speaker of the House,
and several other members of Congress refused to meet with FBI
agents who wanted to tell what they knew about a planned terrorist
attack on lower Manhattan.
John Ashcroft's Dept. of
Justice intervened. David Schippers, Chicago attorney and previous
Clinton impeachment investigator, called several members of Congress
(including Hastert) begging them to take testimony from the FBI
agents before the terrorist act occurred. The agents were
later threatened with prosecution by the DOJ if they went public
with what they knew.
* In July of 2001, a CIA official was reported
to have met with Osama bin Laden, who was receiving treatment
for kidney problems at an American hospital in Dubai. France's
Le Figaro newspaper and Radio France International reported that
bin Laden checked into the American Hospital Dubai in the United
Arab Emirates, a 100-bed, acute-care general hospital, July 4
and stayed until July 14. He arrived from Quetta, Pakistan, accompanied
by his personal doctor, four bodyguards and a male nurse. Bin
Laden received many visitors: local dignitaries and family members,
including the CIA agent, Larry Mitchell, who was widely recognized
locally. Mitchell was recalled to the U.S. shortly thereafter.
At the time, bin Laden was wanted by the U.S. government for
possible involvement in the USS Cole bombing. The CIA dismissed
the report as "absurd." When questioned, both news
agencies stood by their reports. The urologist who is said
to have treated bin Laden, Dr. Terry Callaway, refused to answer
* An FBI informant in San Diego, California, provided housing
and assistance to two of the alleged hijackers: al-Mihdar and
al-Hazmi. The informant claimed he had no way of
knowing that they were going to carry out a terrorist attack
 and had not provided their full names to the FBI. When their
names were placed on the Terrorist Watch List in Aug, 2001, the
FBI couldn't find al-Mihdhar even though his name was in the
San Diego phone book  and they had one of their informants
housing him. When the Joint House-Senate Intelligence Committees
wanted to question the FBI informant about his role, the FBI
refused. To this day, the informant has not been questioned.
A senior member of the FBIs Congressional Affairs Staff
stated the Administration would not sanction a staff interview
with the source." The FBI provided the informant with a
Dept. of Justice lawyer at taxpayers' expense. Of course,
they didn't need to worry about the 9/11 Commission demanding
to question him.
* The CIA did not put al-Mihdhar and al-Hazmi's names on the
Terrorist Watch List until August 24, 2001, even though they
had information identifying them as suspected terrorists with
visas to enter the U.S. for 18 months previous. The CIA
began surveillance on Khaled al-Mihdhar in late 1999. In testimony
before the Joint Congressional Inquiry, CIA Director Tenet stated
that the CIA had learned after 9/11 that "in the mid-90s,
al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar traveled to Bosnia"  where they
participated in U.S.-funded clashes between Muslims and Serbs.
At that time, the Clinton Administration overthrew the Serbian
* The NSA delayed translation and dissemination of information
obtained in wiretapped phone calls concerning al-Mihdhar and
al-Hazmi until after 9/11.
The NSA had information associating
al-Hazmi with the bin Laden network. NSA Director Lt. Gen. Michael
Hayden said even though the NSA did not share the 1998-99 interceptions,
U.S. intelligence by the year 2000 had al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar
"in our sights. We knew of their association with al Qaeda."
In addition, the NSA intercepted on Sept. 10, 2001, the messages,
"The match begins tomorrow" and "Tomorrow is zero
hour" but didn't translate them until Sept. 12.
* FBI and military intelligence agents in Washington were
prevented from investigating members of the Bin Laden family
in the U.S. prior to 9/11. FBI documents, marked secret and
coded 199, leaked to BBC Newsnight and The Guardian in Nov. 2001,
show that an investigation of Abdullah bin Laden and the World
Assembly of Muslim Youth was shut down. Intelligence sources
in Washington told the Guardian: "There were always constraints
on investigating the Saudis." They said the restrictions
became worse after the Bush administration took over. On
June 1, 2004, the World Assembly of Muslim Youth in Alexandria,
Virginia was raided by agents of the FBI, U.S. Bureau of Immigration
and Customs Enforcement and the Joint Terrorism Task Force.
* Aug. 6, 2001: Pres. Bush received a presidential daily
brief in Crawford, Texas, that mentioned the possibility
of an airline hijacking as a domestic threat.
* FBI agents in Minneapolis were denied a warrant on a suspected
Islamic terrorist said to be the 20th hijacker. Zacarias
Moussaoui, a French Muslim, was arrested on immigration charges
on Aug. 16, 2001 after an official at the Pan Am International
Flight Academy he was attending called the FAA and FBI saying,
"Do you realize how serious this is? This man wants training
on a 747. A 747 fully loaded with fuel could be used as a weapon!"
The FBI agents wanted to search Moussaoui's computer and personal
effects but were denied a warrant by FBI headquarters. The agents
requested information from French Intelligence, which indicated
that Moussaoui had terrorist connections with al Qaeda. This
information was forwarded to FBI headquarters and eventually
to the Justice Dept. (DOJ) where they declined to submit it to
the FISA court to obtain a warrant on a foreign national. On
the day after 9/11, the same information was submitted to the
FISA court and a warrant was issued. Michael Maltbie, the
FBI supervisory special agent who delayed the request for a warrant
was later promoted to field supervisor.
* In Aug, 2001, Raytheon engineers successfully landed a unpiloted
Boeing 727 by remote control
at Holloman Air Force
Base in New Mexico. The purpose of the pilotless system was to
allow ground controllers to take over the controls of a hijacked
aircraft. A combination of GPS Satellite and ground signals
were used to orient the aircraft. Raytheon is the manufacturer
of the pilotless Global Hawk surveillance aircraft. On Sept 12,
2001, Raytheon issued a statement that four of their high-level
officials and engineers were listed among the dead passengers
of Flight 11 which was reported as hijacked and crashed on
* In the days before 9/11, unusually high numbers of put options
were purchased for the stocks of AMR Corp. and UAL Corp., the
parent companies of American Airlines and United Airlines. Investors
who engage in such short-selling are betting that the price of
the stock will fall. Between September 6 and 7, the Chicago Board
Options Exchange saw purchases of 4,744 put options on United
Airlines, but only 396 call options. Assuming that 4,000 of the
options were bought by people with advance knowledge of the 9/11
attacks, the "insiders" would have profited by almost
$5 million. The Chicago Board Options Exchange announced that
it was investigating reports of unusual trading activity prior
to 9/11. According to the Associated Press, unusually high
levels of put options were also purchased on Raytheon, Continental,
Delta, Northwest, Southwest, USAirways, and Boeing. Security
and Exchange Commission Chairman Harvey Pitt told Congress that
the agency's "No. 1 priority" was to pursue its worldwide
investigation of possible trading by people associated with the
terrorists. If such trading did occur, "We will do everything
within our power to track those people down and bring them to
justice," In July, 2004, the Securities and Exchange
Commission announced that it "did not develop any evidence
suggesting that anyone who had advance knowledge of the September
11 attacks traded on the basis of that information."
* On the morning of 9/11, Sen. Bob Graham (head of Senate
Intelligence Committee) and Rep. Porter Goss (head of House Intelligence
Committee) had breakfast with General Mahmoud Ahmad, head of
Pakistani Intelligence, who had earlier directed that $100,000
be wired to Mohamad Atta, terrorist ringleader.
* Numerous military exercises, war games and anti-terrorism
drills were scheduled for 9/11. FAA and NORAD tracking radar
were unable to identify real aircraft from simulated war game
- OPERATION NORTHERN VIGILANCE: Planned
months in advance of 9/11. It ensured that on 9/11 NORAD jet
fighters were transferred to Alaska and Canada to monitor a Russian
Air Force exercise, reducing the number of military aircraft
available to protect the east coast. Simulated information
for the exercise was fed into NORAD radar screens.
- BIOWARFARE EXERCISE TRIPOD
II: referred to by Rudolph Giuliani in his
public testimony to the 9/11 Commission (no transcript has been
released to the public). FEMA arrived in New York City on September
10th to set up a command post at Pier 29 to prepare for a biowarfare
exercise scheduled for September 12. As a result, The FEMA Urban
Search and Rescue Team was in place on 9/11.
- OPERATION VIGILANT GUARDIAN: simulated
hijacked planes in the northeastern U.S. Lt. Col. Dawne Deskins,
NORAD unit's airborne control and warning officer, was overseeing
the exercise. At 8:40 am she took a call from Boston Center which
said it had a hijacked airliner. Her first words were, "It
must be part of the exercise."
- - OPERATION NORTHERN GUARDIAN: Few
details are available but it appears to have involved deployment
of aircraft from Langley Air Force Base to Iceland. In late
August, 2001, six jets and 70 people deployed to Iceland for
Operation Northern Guardian. Another six jets and 115 people
deployed to Turkey to enforce the northern Iraqi no-fly zone.
The members in Operation Northern Guardian in Iceland returned
Dec. 3rd, 2001.
- John Fulton, CIA, gave a presentation at a Law Enforcement
Seminar on June 6, 2002 that on the morning of September
11th 2001, he and his team at the CIA were running a pre-planned
simulation to explore the emergency response issues that would
be created if a plane were to strike a building.
- The FAA ordered the Pittsburgh air traffic control tower
evacuated at 9:49 a.m. Flight 93 crashed (or was shot down)
in Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:06. 
- United Flight 175 (second aircraft to hit the Trade Towers) changed
transponder codes (its flight identification) twice in one minute.
-Not one of the four hijacked pilots entered the 4-digit hijack
code to signal they had been hijacked.
- At least six air traffic controllers who dealt with two of
the hijacked airliners made a tape recording that same day describing
the events, but the tape was destroyed by the quality-assurance
manager without anyone making a transcript of it or even listening
to it. The manager crushed the cassette in his hand, shredded
the tape and dropped the pieces into different trash cans around
the building, according to the inspector general of the Transportation
* The ignored testimony of Sec. of Transportation Norman Mineta:
"During the time that the airplane was coming into the Pentagon,
there was a young man who would come in and say to the Vice President,
'The plane is 50 miles out.' 'The plane is 30 miles out.' And
when it got down to 'the plane is 10 miles out,' the young man
also said to the Vice President, 'Do the orders still stand?'
And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and
said, 'Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything
to the contrary?"
Blue line to green arrow:

* The official story is that the black boxes (voice and data
recorders) from Flight 11 and Flight 175 were never retrieved
from the World Trade Tower wreckage. However,
firefighters Mike Bellone and Nicholas DeMasi say they assisted
the FBI in retrieving three of the four black boxes in December,
2001. When recently interviewed by the American Free Press, Bellone
said, "They confronted me and told me not to say anything.
I said, 'Give me a good reason.' When they couldn't, I told them
I wouldn't shut up about it. Why should I? I have nothing to
hide and nothing to gain. It's the truth and Nick and I are sticking
to our story as we always have."
