Oft-gazed upon navel of the 9/11 Truth movement; crossroads at which many a multi-car pile-up has taken place.

The 911blogger site was originally a melting pot of all ideas about 9-11. All sides seem to be open to debate. Then positions started to harden against certain ideas. While moderators at first seemed neutral, they later took a harder line against mention of Zionist and Israeli involvement in 9-11.

There was also good reporting of issues about controlled demolition, but there seemed to be moderator bias to protect ((Jon Gold)), a blogger who quite often tried to put down controlled demolition and its supporters with less than logical arguments.

The moderators eventually implemented moderation queues for bloggers that were critical of certain individuals and banned those in the site who supported Real Truther's then new (( Posting a link to WTCDemolition even in a sig line was totally unacceptable to the 911blogger moderators then.

At a certain point the admin, ((dz)) who was quite neutral at the start but later seemed to passively side with the biased moderation was replaced by ((Reprehensor)) who was iron fisted in his biased moderation. The site's bias and attempts to control discussion reached a peak when mass bannings took place (mostly of CD and zionists-did-it supporters) and the registration page was removed. Can you imagine a blog site that purports to report and debate the truth but doesn't even have an accessible registration page!

Then 911blogger started to promote itself as an all stars site where the bigwigs like ((Steven Jones)) and ((Richard Gage)) would write blogs. If you wanted to read about their latest issues, 911blogger was where to find it first. Nice it seems, but at the same time, the site also held discussions where these very same 9-11 researchers were being undermined. If it were just valid criticism of these researchers, it would have been totally fine, but as before, the arguments that were putting down the research of these esteemed truthers seemed to hold no merit at all, yet allowed to flourish unchallenged within the site.

An intellectually-mediocre pugnacious ((Zionist)) ((LIHOP))per.


this email exchange between Jon Gold and ((Kevin Barrett)) is revealing as well as entertaining:


The problem isn't that you're pugnacious. Nor is that intellectually, you're utterly mediocre, and that's being charitable. Nor is it that you're pro-Zionist. Lots of my friends and colleagues support a Jewish state in Palestine, and that's their business.

The problem is that the combination of your stupidity, Zionism, and pugnaciousness makes you a huge waste of time, and a drain on the resources of the 9/11 truth movement.

I have never once in my life attacked anyone in the 9/11 truth movement if they didn't attack me first. Why not? Because it just leads to a time-wasting flame war.

But you...all you DO, besides posting moronic home movies that even your dog wouldn't want to watch, and idiotically predictable commentary that even your mom wouldn't want to read, is attack people (mostly people who are at least 50 IQ points and oodles of education ahead of you) and start flame wars. The internet, which puts everyone--morons like you and erudite geniuses like Tarpley--on the same level, has contributed to your developing a wildly inflated opinion of yourself. Like the F student who protests the hardest against not getting an A, you're too dumb to realize how dumb you are.

If you aren't an op, you might as well be. My best guess is that you're just an intellectually-mediocre pugnacious Zionist lihopper who has somehow come into enough money to spend your whole life wasting the 9/11 truth movement's time. You and Brian Good are each other's evil twins. Maybe you two should get together and wank each other while you fantasize about the 9/11 truth leaders you love to hate.

9-11 Mysteries Seminal film about controlled demolitions. Sofia Shafquat, the film's director and producer (who says she financed the movie with credit cards) has come under fire for connections to some of the more notorious Jew-hate-baiters -- ((Eric Hufschmid)) and John Kaminski.

Arabesque was/is a blogger who appeared at (( as a commenter in late 2006, mostly supporting controlled demolition arguments. At some point in 2007 he confessed that he really hadn't examined Pentagon-related issues, and following that, became one of the more vociferous proponents of a Big Boeing crash at the Pentagon, and an "analyst" of Truth Movement disinformation.

One of Arabesque's pro-BBC (Big Boeing Crash) blogs contains a frequently-cited compendium of Pentagon witness statements purporting to bolster both the South of Citgo flight path and the crash itself. Despite repeated demonstrations that many of the witnesses are not credible (they were not in a position to see the Pentagon from their vantage points and/or they inferred the crash and/or their "statements" are actually journalist-created remarks imputed to them), he has not admitted any fault or made any revisions.

Arabesque was also one of the parties denounced by ((Webster Tarpley)) at the time of the ((Kennebunkport Fiasco)). He has parlayed this unpleasant encounter with Tarpley into a seemingly endless amount of ((victim cred)).

Blowback Theorists
Blowback theorists contend that the September 11 attacks were indeed carried out by enraged Arabs and Muslims who were part of groups that had been groomed by Western intelligence but who were now "turning on their masters" and attacking the heart of American Empire in retaliation for our policies in the Arab/Muslim world. This theory much beloved by followers of ((Noam Chomsky)) who will sometimes even impute racist motivations to 9/11 truth ("So what you're saying is that you don't believe BROWN-SKINNED FREEDOM FIGHTERS could pull off such a magnificent coup, amirite?")

Bob Bowman Bob Bowman is a former Air Force officer who appeared at the Los Angeles conference in 2005 and following that ascended to prominence in the 9/11 truth movement as a former "government insider" In 2007, he ran for office in his home state of Florida, garnering campaign contributions from Truthers throughout the United States. After losing the race, he has toured the country on an annual basis as a representative of [some Patriot-truther thing]. He has not explicitly stated where he stands with regard to explosive demolition and his oft-repeated mantra is "The truth about 9/11 is that we don't know the truth."

What Can We Do About Terrorism?
© 2001 by Dr. Robert M. Bowman, Lt. Col., USAF, ret.

A few years ago, terrorists destroyed two U.S. embassies. President Clinton retaliated against suspected facilities of Osama bin Laden. In his television address, the President told the American people that we were the targets of terrorism because we stood for democracy, freedom, and human rights in the world.
On that occasion, I wrote: "Tell people the truth, Mr. President ... about terrorism, not about poor Monica. If your lies about terrorism go unchallenged, then the terror war you have unleashed will likely continue until it destroys us. The threat of nuclear terrorism is closing in upon us. Chemical terrorism is at hand, and biological terrorism is a future danger. None of our thousands of nuclear weapons can protect us from these threats. These idols of plutonium, titanium, and steel are impotent. Our worship of them for over five decades has not brought us security, only greater danger. No 'Star Wars' system ... no matter how technically advanced, no matter how many trillions of dollars was poured into it ... can protect us from even a single terrorist bomb. Not one weapon in our vast arsenal can shield us from a nuclear weapon delivered in a sailboat or a Piper Cub or a suitcase or a Ryder rental truck. Not a penny of the 273 billion dollars a year we spend on so-called defense can actually defend us against a terrorist bomb. Nothing in our enormous military establishment can actually give us one whit of security. That is a military fact.

"Mr. President, you did not tell the American people the truth about why we are the targets of terrorism. You said that we are the target because we stand for democracy, freedom, and human rights in the world. Baloney! We are the target of terrorists because we stand for dictatorship, bondage, and human exploitation in the world. We are the target of terrorists because we are hated. And we are hated because our government has done hateful things.

"In how many countries have we deposed popularly elected leaders and replaced them with puppet military dictators who were willing to sell out their own people to American multinational corporations?

"We did it in Iran when we deposed Mossadegh because he wanted to nationalize the oil industry. We replaced him with the Shah, and trained, armed, and paid his hated Savak national guard, which enslaved and brutalized the people of Iran. All to protect the financial interests of our oil companies. Is it any wonder there are people in Iran who hate us?

"We did it in Chile when we deposed Allende, democratically elected by the people to introduce socialism. We replaced him with the brutal right- wing military dictator, General Pinochet. Chile has still not recovered.

"We did it in Vietnam when we thwarted democratic elections in the South which would have united the country under Ho Chi Minh. We replaced him with a series of ineffectual puppet crooks who invited us to come in and slaughter their people - and we did. (I flew 101 combat missions in that war which you properly opposed.)

"We did it in Iraq, where we killed a quarter of a million civilians in a failed attempt to topple Saddam Hussein, and where we have killed a million since then with our sanctions. About half of these innocent victims have been children under the age of five.

"And, of course, how many times have we done it in Nicaragua and all the other banana republics of Latin America? Time after time we have ousted popular leaders who wanted the riches of the land to be shared by the people who worked it. We replaced them with murderous tyrants who would sell out and control their own people so that the wealth of the land could be taken out by Domino Sugar, the United Fruit Company, Folgers, and Chiquita Banana.

"In country after country, our government has thwarted democracy, stifled freedom, and trampled human rights. That's why we are hated around the world. And that's why we are the target of terrorists.

"People in Canada enjoy better democracy, more freedom, and greater human rights than we do. So do the people of Norway and Sweden. Have you heard of Canadian embassies being bombed? Or Norwegian embassies? Or Swedish embassies. No.

"We are not hated because we practice democracy, freedom, and human rights. We are hated because our government denies these things to people in third world countries whose resources are coveted by our multinational corporations. And that hatred we have sown has come back to haunt us in the form of terrorism, and in the future, nuclear terrorism.

"Once the truth about why the threat exists is understood, the solution becomes obvious. We must change our government's ways. Instead of sending our sons and daughters around the world to kill Arabs so the oil companies can sell the oil under their sand, we must send them to rebuild their infrastructure, supply clean water, and feed starving children.

"Instead of continuing to kill thousands of Iraqi children every day with our sanctions, we must help them rebuild their electric powerplants, their water treatment facilities, their hospitals - all the things we destroyed in our war against them and prevented them from rebuilding with our sanctions.

"Instead of seeking to be king of the hill, we must become a responsible member of the family of nations. Instead of stationing hundreds of thousands of troops around the world to protect the financial interests of our multinational corporations, we must bring them home and expand the Peace Corps.

"Instead of training terrorists and death squads in the techniques of torture and assassination, we must close the School of the Americas (no matter what name they use). Instead of supporting military dictatorships,we must support true democracy -- the right of the people to choose their own leaders. Instead of supporting insurrection, destabilization, assassination, and terror around the world, we must abolish the CIA and give the money to relief agencies.

"In short, we do good instead of evil. We become the good guys, once again. The threat of terrorism would vanish. That is the truth, Mr. President. That is what the American people need to hear. We are good people. We only need to be told the truth and given the vision. You can do it, Mr. President. Stop the killing. Stop the justifying. Stop the retaliating. Put people first. Tell them the truth."

Needless to say, he didn't ... and neither has George W. Bush.

Well, the seeds our policies have planted have borne their bitter fruit. The World Trade Center is gone. The Pentagon is damaged. And thousands of Americans have died. Almost every TV pundit is crying for massive military retaliation against whoever might have done it (assumedly the same Osama bin Laden) and against whoever harbors or aids the terrorists (most notably the Taliban government of Afghanistan). Steve Dunleavy of the New York Post screams "Kill the bastards! Train assassins, hire mercenaries, put a couple of million bucks up for bounty hunters to get them dead or alive, preferably dead. As for cities or countries that host these worms, bomb them into basketball courts." It's tempting to agree, but retaliation hasn't rid us of the problem in the past, and won't this time.

By far the world's best anti-terrorist apparatus is Israel's. Measured in military terms, it has been phenomenally successful. Yet Israel is still the primary target of terrorists and suffers more attacks than all other nations combined. If retaliation worked, Israelis would be the world's most secure people.

Only one thing has ever ended a terrorist campaign -- denying the terrorist organization the support of the larger community it represents. And the only way to do that is to listen to and alleviate the legitimate grievances of the people. If indeed Osama bin Laden was behind the four hijackings and subsequent carnage, that means addressing the concerns of the Arabs and Muslims in general and of the Palestinians in particular.

It does NOT mean abandoning Israel. But it may very well mean withdrawing all financial and military support until they abandon the settlements in occupied territory and comply with their duty to return to 1967 borders. It may also mean allowing Arab countries to have leaders of their own choosing, not hand-picked, CIA-installed dictators willing to cooperate with Western oil companies.

Chester Gillings has said it very well:

"How do we fight back against bin Laden? The first thing we must ask ourselves is what is it we hope to achieve -- security or revenge? The two are mutually exclusive; seek revenge and we WILL reduce our security. If it is security we seek, then we must begin to answer the tough questions -- what are the grievances of the Palestinians and the Arab world against the United States, and what is our real culpability for those grievances? Where we find legitimate culpability, we must be prepared to cure the grievance wherever possible. Where we cannot find culpability or a cure, we must communicate honestly our positions directly to the Arab people. In short, our best course of action is to remove ourselves as a combatant in the disputes of the region."
To kill bin Laden now would be to make him an eternal martyr. Thousands would rise up to take his place. In another year, we would face another round of terrorism, probably much worse even than this one. The vast majority of Arabs and Muslims are good, peaceful people.
But enough of them, in their desperation and anger and fear, have turned first to Arafat and now to bin Laden to relieve their misery. Remove the desperation, give them some hope, and support for terrorism will evaporate. At that point bin Laden will be forced to abandon terrorism (as has Arafat) or be treated like a common criminal. Either way, he and his money cease to be a threat.

We CAN have security ... or we can have revenge. We cannot have both.

Forbidden Truth I remember getting this book when it came out and thinking I'd discovered these amazing facts. Ha! How silly I look in hindsight! See where a lot of the LIHOPPERS came from?

"The Forbidden Truth" tells you what really happened, July 11, 2002
By John J Emerson (Portland, OR United States) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Forbidden Truth: U.S.-Taliban Secret Oil Diplomacy, Saudi Arabia and the Failed Search for bin Laden (Paperback)
First of all, this is the GOOD French book on 9/11. (The OTHER French book on 9/11 you hear people talking about is the same old conspiracy theory stuff. Dasquie and Brisard are well-respected professionals and completely mainstream.
When 9/11 took place the American response was dominated by rage and disbelief: how could anyone ever do something like that to us? Suggestions that we figure out why it happened were automatically slapped down, as if even asking the question would give legitimacy to the attackers.

It's quite normal to have inquiries whenever a disaster takes place, so someone must have had something to hide. This book tells you who they were and what it was.

The United States was negotiating with the Taliban right into September of 2001. What was at issue was an oil pipeline across Afghanistan, and the options we offered them were two: cooperate with us on the pipeline, or war. When negotiations broke down, Osama Bin Laden (a U.S. ally only a decade earlier in the anti-Soviet war, and a major force in Afghanistan)struck first. Once we were at war with the Taliban, they became unspeakably evil; but as long as it seemed that they might be willing to play ball, we had no problem with them.

The role of Saudi Arabia in this story is a second major theme. Most of the hijackers were Saudis and the funding came from Saudi Arabia and the neighboring Gulf States. Furthermore, some of Bin Laden's support, contrary to what we have been told, came from very high levels in Saudi society. Saudi Arabia has long been a major source of funds for Muslim extremists globally, and the see-no-evil complicity in this of the U.S. government and the oil industry cannot be denied. While this book in no way claims that the CIA (much less the Mossad) had a hand in the 9/11 attacks, it makes it clear that excessively indulgent attitudes to the Saudis at very high levels of the US government led to extreme negligence and made the terrorists' job much easier.

Saudi Arabia is not on the list of ten or more terrorist nations which we plan to attack. After reading this book, you will ask why not.

The ugly world of realpolitik is exposed, July 25, 2002
By Malvin (Frederick, MD USA) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Forbidden Truth: U.S.-Taliban Secret Oil Diplomacy, Saudi Arabia and the Failed Search for bin Laden (Paperback)
Brisard and Dasquie's "Forbidden Truth" is a very solid piece of research that contains more than a few surprises about the realpolitiks of the Middle East, especially as it pertains to the United States and Saudi Arabia. The book turns a number of received wisdoms on their head and should give everyone concerned about the war on terror a few things to think about.
Of course, the authors show that fossil fuels drives American policy in the region. The Clinton and Bush administrations both negotiated with the Taliban for the construction of a natural gas pipeline to be built in Afghan territory despite clear-cut evidence of the regime's human rights abuses. However, the book also makes the eye-popping suggestion that U.S. representatives may have recklessly threatened the Taliban prior to the September 11 attack, thereby provoking Al Qaeda into action.

Basically, Brisard and Dasquie explain that Saudi Arabia supports radical Islamic movements (including the Taliban, Al Qaeda and Usama Bin Laden) in order to extend its hegemony over the area. Saudi support of the Taliban, for example, helped keep Afghanistan from falling under Iranian influence. Interestingly, the authors point out that the first arrest warrant ever issued against Usama Bin Laden came not from the U.S. -- which wanted to overlook Usama's behavior in order to keep Saudi oil flowing -- but from Libya.

I must admit that all of this came as quite a surprise to me, since Saudi Arabia has always been portrayed as a staunch ally of the U.S. In fact, Brisard and Dasquie recall how U.S. oil companies helped the country develop, but they also show that the Kingdom remains dependent on religion to maintain control over its people. So the country is practically schizophrenic in its need to simultaneously maintain business ties with the U.S. and defend against the spread of Arab nationalism by covertly preaching the gospel of anti-Americanism.

The authors go into considerable detail illuminating the people, organizations and financial relationships that make the Saudi-supported terror network possible. The indictments reach the highest levels of Saudi society. In this light, it appears that Usama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda simply spun out of their master's control and took the anti-American cause too far.

All this should give us pause to consider why the U.S. allowed the Saudis to play such a dangerous game for so long. Also, one would think that prudence should compel the U.S. to develop an energy policy that does not depend on Middle Eastern oil. But already, Brisard and Dasquie report that talks for the pipeline have resumed since the installation of the Karzai regime in Afghanistan in May 2002.

On a technical note, the book could benefit from additional editorial work to correct a few grammatical errors (presumably due to the translation from French to English?) and several footnote mistakes. Stylistically, the author's research sometimes makes for dry reading, but that is only because the facts have been meticulously documented and presented. So although "Forbidden Truth" is at times far from entertaining, the reader is nevertheless impressed with the professionalism of the research and its air-tight conclusions. (Indeed, sensing the threat that the book poses to its business empire, the Bin Laden family succeeded in getting the book banned in Switzerland.)

"Forbidden Truth" is recommended for anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of the dynamics underlying the war on terror.

Horrifying! But Sadly Not Surprising..., October 8, 2002
By Anthony Ian "anthony_ian" (Chicago, IL United States) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Forbidden Truth: U.S.-Taliban Secret Oil Diplomacy, Saudi Arabia and the Failed Search for bin Laden (Paperback)
In a nutshell, this book outlines how we've looked the other way regarding Islamic terror for decades because it inconvenienced oil deals. No big surprise, although you may still be shocked at the calculated cynicism and the cold-blooded capitalism.
We may have bombed Afghanistan after 9/11, but you'll be shocked to learn that prior to 9/11 we actually tacitly supported the Taliban--because we wanted a stable regime there to allow for the construction of a lucrative pipeline through the country. We'd eventually sour on the Taliban as their abuses became world news, but we gave them plenty of money year after year.

Other sad tales involve our continuing "friendship" with Saudi Arabia--again, based on oil money--which seems absurd considering their status as the #1 exporter of Islamic terrorism, including the majority of the 9/11 hijackers.

Also interesting is how deeply the White House is staffed with big oil veterans--everybody knows about Bush and Cheney's oil gigs, but who knew Condoleeza Rice was a decade-long employee of the oil industry?

This book presents a pretty sobering reality about what our priorties have been over the years--most of them have taken a back seat to big oil profits, even post 9/11. Many conservative (meaning: Bush supporters) readers will probably dismiss this book because of its stark, unflattering portrayal of our government and its principals--those of us who are a little more questioning will still be appalled at how callous our policies have become... in the name of oil profits.

Diane the NYC Activist
A flash in the pan or possibly a very clear example of a ((cointelpro)) effort. Originally a women's and gay rights activist. Argued herself OUT of accepting ((controlled demolition)) and tries to do the same to others.

From the WTCD blog (date?):

In her typical "see how calm and reasonable I am" style, Diane the New York Activist gives a lengthy review of some guy named Max Photon, who sells himself as MAX-MIHOP and seems to spend a lot of time arguing with OCT shills on the JREF forums.

The theory that Diane and Mr. Photon are trying to give credibility to is that explosives weren't used in the WTC demolitions, just ((thermite)), to weaken the columns enough to precipitate a "natural" gravity based collapse. Mr. Photon even goes so far as to say that ((Bazant)) (a hardcore ((OCT)) spinner) is "the man when it comes to column failure".

Like a lot of what fake truthers point out, it is all presented in a way that makes the relative newbie say "hmmm, these people seem like they're onto something." Diane and Max make a great tag team because Max is a "character" who refers to himself in the third person (Max is hungry--Max is going to eat that sandwich) while Diane is a "seasoned activist" who likes to "resolve conflicts" and "promote tolerance". That pen on her blog is the kicker for her image--it is, I'm sure, the pen that she uses to fill out her New York Times crossword every day--in INK!

So what's the problem? Well, suggesting that explosives need not have been involved is the first step to suggesting that a "collapse" of the sort that occurred could happen just with gravity, so long as the columns were weakened. Now, this is clearly BS. Much of the work done to date on the destruction makes it clear that gravity based collapse, no matter HOW the columns may have been weakened, cannot possibly be the explanation--the speed of the destruction, the pulverized concrete, the squibs--none of these can be explained with a thermite/gravity explanation. Not just that, but Diane and Max also promote ((Frank Greening)), a sort of bridge ((shill)) between ((the NIST report)) and the truth movement (he acknowledges some problems with the NIST report but does not endorse any kind of foul play scenarion.)

One of Greening's claims apparently is that there could have been aluminothermic (like thermite) reactions caused by interaction between the aluminum in the planes and the rust in the towers.

To me the strategy is clear here--dismantle the truth step by step. First suggest that thermite alone could have done it (no explosives, yeah right) and THEN suggest that "oh, well it need not have been thermite--clever and trustworthy scientists everywhere say that a similar effect could have resulted from the plane crashes".

Warning to the truth movement--Diane the activist is apparently frequenting meetings of ((New York 911 Truth)). She is one of the most obviously fake truthers I've seen come out in a while, and she has been very productive in the few weeks she's been active. In effect, if not intent, she seems to be working to (you guessed it!) protect ((Larry Silverstein)) by trying to explain away the demolition of the towers as a freak accident, thereby paving part of the road to the ultimate goal of the ((LIHOP)) ((limited hangout)) escape route for the perps.

Citizen Investigation Team
Two guys, ((Craig Ranke)) and ((Aldo Marquis)), who have spent a lot of time and money traveling from the West Coast to the Arlington/D.C. area to do interviews with Pentagon eyewitnesses, including cab-driver Lloyde England (he of the lamp-post-speared windshield). Increasingly vociferous regarding their theory that a) there was a large passenger jet present b) its actual flightpath went north of the Citgo gas station and could not have cause the damage to the light poles or the directional damage in the building itself and c)that this plane pulled up and flew over the Pentagon building at the same time that a fireball misdirected the attention of witnesses.

They have also transitioned from being citizen journalists and researchers to advocates of a 9/11 truth strategy based on their work (i.e. spreading the "((flyover)) theory" far and wide, especially to public officials).

Journal of 9-11 Studies The 9/11 Truth Movement's in-house "peer-reviewed" journal, which has featured the seminal articles by ((Steven Jones)) as well as recent work by ((Frank Legge)) (which work is the reason I have "peer-reviewed" in quotations -- c455). Supposedly no longer seeking submissions (writers are encouraged to submit their papers to mainstream journals) but busy posting Legge's pro-plane crash at the Pentagon papers (up to Version 8).
((Mark Robinowitz))'s migraine-inducing temple of ((LIHOP)), ((blowback)), and ((incompetence theory)). Heavily influenced by ((Mike Ruppert)) and ((Peak Oil theory)).

Sibel Edmonds Former short-term translator for the FBI with approximately 18% body fat and liquid brown eyes who alleges that AFTER September 11, she translated material that was super-incriminating to some U.S. government officials and possibly Turkish lesbians. Essentially an advocate of the idea that a Turkish mafia, funded by drug money, has hijacked the U.S. government and allowed 9/11 to happen.

Heavily promoted in 9/11 Truth circles by ((Jon Gold)), she continues to not pursue anything relevant to 9/11 Truth on a website/radio program called ((The Boiling Frogs))

(Please revise for reduced snark.)

Video Fakery - No Plane Hit the Towers
A "theory" that was hotly debated (sort of) at the same time that explosive demolition as an explanation of the WTC destruction was getting traction at 911blogger. Video fakery people just would not shut up. The theory is related to the "hologram planes" theory of pre-2006. Chief figures include ((Nico Haupt)), ((Peggy Carter)), ((Killtown)), and ((CB_Brooklyn)).

See also ((blatant disinformation)).

Daryl Bradford Smith Owner of and host of The French Connection internet radio show.

Former associate of ((Eric Hufschmid)), "offensive anti-Zionist" (Jew-hate-baiter).

Luke Rudkowski Founder of We Are Change, but deserves his own entry because We Are Change is a loose network of local activist groups with no apparent direction from the founder. Associated with ((Alex Jones)) and interviewed several times by ((Russia Today)).
Website and forum started by Gretavo when explosive demolition was still a very contentious issue at 911blogger. Following several waves of purges at 911blogger (beginning with Gretavo's own banning from that site), it became a refuge for some of the movement's most critical thinkers/black sheep/misfit toys.

Webster Tarpley
Originally a follower of Lyndon LaRouche, the bizarro pseudo-populist (who, along with his followers, is most certainly NOT interested in advancing the cause of 9/11 Truth), Tarpley is now an "independent" historian, analyst, and speaker. His book Synthetic Terror: Made in USA is up to its fourth edition.

David Shayler British former (allegedly) MI5 agent who came out for 9/11 truth along with his partner (personal and professional) ((Annie Machon)). Shayler's claims about 9/11 became increasingly bizarre, including the claim that missiles made to look like planes by use of holograms were what hit the twin towers. His no doubt planned self-destruction culminated with a claim to be the messiah and a transformation into transvestite alter ego "Delores Kane".

Professor Emeritus of Brigham Young University who was forced into early retirement as a result of the controversy ensuing from his academic paper speculating on the role played by thermite in the destruction of the twin towers and WTC7. Cofounded ((Scholars for 9-11 Truth)) with ((Jim Fetzer)). After a falling out with mainly over the latter's endorsement of the work of ((Judy Wood)) Jones formed a new group called ((Scholars for 9-11 Truth and Justice)). Members of the old group were given the choice of staying in Fetzer's group or joining Jones', the vast majority choosing the latter.

Steve Alten Former PhysEd teacher cum bad novelist, penned ((The Shell Game)), a bad novel ostensibly containing clues for the reader about 9/11 truth. Truthers were encouraged to buy as many copies as they could in an attempt to have it make the NYTimes bestseller list, which would be a great boon for the truth movement.

Dear 9/11 Truth Seekers Demanding a New 9/11 Investigation,

Today we have an amazing opportunity, if we work together, to launch 9/11 truth into a new mainstream American paradigm.

In the formation of the global 9/11 truth movement there have been landmark moments that catapulted this truth movement forward:

* ((Mike Ruppert))'s early work with and his crucial early research (which got me in this)
* The first national truth conference, formed by ((Carol Brouillet)) / ((Ken Jenkins)) in San Francisco
* The formation of (( after that conference
* The dissemination of the "Stop the 9/11 Cover Up" signs to groups nationwide (911visibility)
* ((David Ray Griffin))'s earth shaking work
* Professor ((Steven Jones)) physics research
* ((Kevin Ryan))'s blowing the whistle on inaccuracies of UL's report to NIST
* The release of ((Loose Change)), which exploded the movement
* The "Eleventh Day of Every Month" (( Campaign
* The release of
* ((We Are Change))'s national television exposure on 9/11 truth issues
* The release of ((Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth)),

Today, we have an opportunity to explode 9/11 truth issues into the mainstream mind, in the form of a soon to be released popular action fiction novel by New York Times Best Selling Novelist, ((Steve Alten)) ( If we can get 30,000 copies of this profound novel purchased in the first month of its release, we can drive it to #1 on the New York Times best seller list. The 9/11 truth movement can do this, if we ALL push for it to happen.

Why is this such an incredible opportunity?

1) It is written by a New York Times Best Selling novelist - He's established an "adopt-a-writer" program, that has connected him with hundreds of english departments/teachers in high schools all across America and donated many copies of his book to US troops overseas, with a huge audience there.

2) Americans love action fiction (which "The Shell Game" definitely is)

3) The publisher has already purchased prime display space in the front of Barnes & Noble and Borders stores for its release

4) The author's webmaster is now creating a website for the book's release that will include major 9/11 truth websites, youtube video links, and recommended non-fiction reading on 9/11 (DRG, Ruppert, etc.)

We, the undersigned, urge everyone seeking truth, peace and justice, to not only purchase this new novel, "The Shell Game," but also to email out this appeal to all you know who seek truth, peace and justice in the form of 9/11 truth coming out. In turn, please urge them to do the same with all their contacts and urge them to do the same. We can break 9/11 truth open if we work together and focus on this project for the next 30 days.

by Daniel Hopsicker
13 November 2001 -- Venice, Florida.

The first thing you notice about the airport in Venice Florida is that there is a Flying Trapeze planted down at the end of one of the runways. It is a strange juxtaposition.

While taking off or landing, the terrorist student pilots practicing 'touch and go’s' could look over and see tightrope walkers or aerialists dancing high above the ground while practicing gravity-defying stunts, at a circus school which is a vestige of Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus, which used to make its winter home here.

Come to Venice. Join the Flying Circus.

Become a Human Missile.

Until Rudi Dekkers bought Huffman Aviation, Venice, Florida was best known as the Shark Tooth Capital of the World. But the flight training given to terrorists out at the local airport has now changed all that, and thrust this sleepy burg into the middle of one of American History's worst nightmares.

Within hours of the September 11 attack authorities concluded that the terrorist pilots had shown such unusual skill in maneuvering commercial airliners toward their targets that at least one hijacker on each jet must have been trained right here in the U.S.

They were right.

Cut to Venice, Florida. Middle of the night.

The FBI swarms. Local police do the grunt work. Under bright klieg lights they carry away boxes upon boxes of records from Rudi Dekkers flight school.

Remember Rudi?

"I don't need anything from you, just a check to start flying," said Dekkers, who likened flying lessons to shopping for groceries. "We're just a business."

The next day, the FBI is back again at the Venice Airport, this time down the block at Arne Kruithof’s flight school.

"It's really just coincidence that terrorists chose such a place (as Venice) to be their training ground for the unspeakable," says Venice City Manager George Hunt.

Determining whether that statement is true is complicated by the fact that the FBI has confiscated everything in sight looking remotely like evidence.

And the FBI isn’t talking.

"The FBI took all our files, everything," said one local law enforcement official, after shaking his head ruefully when we asked if Rudi had any local ‘priors.’

He shrugs. He can’t tell. His files are now All Gone.

"They loaded two Ryder trucks right outside that (police station) window, then drove them right onto a C130 military cargo plane at Sarasota airport which flew out with Jeb Bush aboard."

Nobody has yet been charged over the attacks on America. FBI chiefs talk about the agents they have on the case, the doors they have knocked down, the thousand and more suspects they have arrested.

They do not explain why they have failed to catch anyone responsible.

That the terrorist cadre had been trained right here in America opened a huge can of worms. And before all the squiggly little creatures had been put back into a cool dark place it had been disclosed that after establishing their terrorist beachhead in unsuspecting Venice as many as six of the Terrorist 19 had gone on to receive training at U.S. military bases.

Mohamed Atta, for example, was reported to have attended the International Officers School at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama.

The Pentagon quickly disputed the reports, which had appeared in Newsweek, the Washington Post and the Miami Herald. But their denial was vague, almost flimsy, and only raised further questions. Still, they were apparently enough for Newsweek, the Washington Post, and the Miami Herald.

All three dropped the story.

Was this a triumph for accuracy in Media? Or an example of wartime censorship?

The answer is: no one knows. If they do they aren’t telling.

Even a Senator, Bill Nelson of Florida, couldn’t get a response from the Attorney General and the Justice Department when he specifically inquired about the report that three of the Terrorist 19 had listed the Pensacola Naval Air Station as their home address.

We know of at least one woman in Montgomery Alabama who has credibly insisted to local reporters that she met Atta at a party on the base. She remembers because she then introduced him to her friends.

"Mohamed, meet my friend the Colonel."

Arab pilots, mostly Saudis, took up most of one of the most elite upscale apartment complexes in Montgomery, one observer there informed us. They too are now All Gone.

"They went in and got every one of them out of there pronto. Right after it happened."

There are dozens of terrorist pilots out there loose that went through U.S. flight training. But of the thousands of flight schools in this country, a mere handful of names keep popping up. Did a covert operation at the two Venice flight schools serve as a portal into an informal military training network?

The former head of the American visa bureau in Jeddah from 1987 to 1989, Michael Springman, told BBC Newsnight: "In Saudi Arabia I was repeatedly ordered by high-level State Department officials to issue visas to unqualified applicants."

Last week the Boston Globe reported that the NSA was destroying evidence, to the fury of other intelligence agencies and FBI investigators.

"A crying shame."

Often mentioned in connection with the NSA, Jackson Stephens has been a prominent figure in tiny Venice, Florida... for decades.

From a baronial estate built by Stephens financial empire the Boone law firm may still rule the city today, at least according to an angry letter to the editor we came across in last week's local Venice Gondolier...

"I think it is a crying shame that Dan Boone and his crowd can raise obscene sums of money to control the election and make it impossible for a candidate without great resource to run for city council. We might as well cancel future elections."

Even if it is a run-on sentence, this tells us something. Stephens was a big player in tiny Venice. Could be, he still is. Things are already beginning to look like somebody's game of Inside Baseball...

Then last Tuesday the BBC reported that there had always been "constraints" on investigating Saudis, but that under President George W Bush it had become much worse, according to "a highly-placed source in a US intelligence agency."

The Bush Family has had a number of connections with Saudi Arabia's prominent Bin Laden family. But it would be wildly unfair for anyone to accuse President George W. Bush of a conflict of interest.

Still, we have now heard one credible source claim that President Bush knows Osama Bin Laden personally. They met in Texas in the 80’s, when the CIA was pouring money into Bin Laden’s efforts, says this source.

If Bush knew Osama Bin Laden, though, he needs to tell us. Because, this time, we need to know everything. Otherwise how will we be sure that we have avenged the poor people we saw that day, so much like ourselves, except we were watching television while they were holding hands in twos and threes and jumping out of 110th story windows?

How long does it take a 200-pound body to fall 100 stories?

What prior dealings with U.S. officials might the terrorists individually or collectively have had?

What was the nature of those deals? Did they compromise U.S. security?

Did money change hands?

One way to get some answers, we figured, might be to go to Venice, tucked on the Florida Coast between Tampa and Fort Myers, where the terrorists began their U.S. training, and walk in their footsteps.

The terrorist cadre came here to train at two flight schools, each purchased independently by two separate Dutch nationals in 1998.

Some found that a little odd.

"One damn Dutch boy too many," muttered one longtime national investigator.

Perhaps they were just seeing things. Dutch people are free to buy businesses in the U.S., aren’t they?

Even if the companies being bought up are located next door to one another, and both of the supposedly competing Dutch Boys are business partners of a third man, Pascal Schrier?

Even if the businesses are shortly thereafter used to train the Bin Laden Air Force... what of it?

"We're just a business."

The only explanation offered as to why the terrorists picked Venice has been a vague assertion that flight training in Florida is cheaper than in Europe.

Cheaper than Europe, maybe. But is it cheaper than in the Sudan?

And even if true it does nothing to answer questions about why, with more than 200 flight schools to choose from in Florida alone, Atta’s deadly pilot cadre from Hamburg began their deadly invasion of the U.S. flight training at adjacent flight schools owned by Dutch nationals in a podunk town in the middle of nowhere.

Even the weak "cheaper by the terrorist squadron" explanation breaks down upon closer examination...

Typical training fees for a private pilot’s license are in the $10,000 range. Yet Atta and his sidekick together paid almost $40,000 to Dekker’s Huffman Aviation.

Was Dekkers charging double the going rate?

The Rudi Dekkers Surcharge.

Atta didn’t care. Atta was flush. Atta flashed a Big Roll. Ask the girls who dance at the Cheetah club in Sarasota. Cash was no problemo.

Atta liked very Un-Islamic lap dances at the Pink Pony Strip Club. Atta liked stuffing $20 bills into the panties of topless dancers in nightclubs at the seedy end of Las Vegas' Strip.

Atta liked ogling infidel flesh. And he had a taste for the finer things in life too. Atta liked hanging out at Harry’s Bar in New York, where he preferred a table near the piano.

Life in Venice must have been hell for Atta. The median age is 69. Dinnertime begins at 4 PM. Almost everyone gets in on the early bird specials.

Atta must have chafed. No wonder everyone ragged his "bad attitude." Six months in Venice was an eternity. Whose fault was that? Was Venice his choice? Or someone else's? Why did Mohamed Atta come here? Coincidence? Mere happenstance?

The Magic Dutch Boy Theory does not cohere. Will the Lone Nut Cadre story hold?

Do the American people have a right to know the true nature of the threat which has so suddenly changed all our lives?

Might we be better off not knowing?

Maybe these questions are being answered in meetings being held right now in Hollywood, between Bush aide Karl Rove and studio honchos

Back in Venice, even the circus that made its winter home here has sinister connections. Headquartered in Vienna, Virginia, it is owned by the Feld family of Washington D.C.

According to a recent two-part story in Salon magazine, circus owner Kenneth Feld hired former top CIA honcho Clair George to torment a hapless freelance writer for eight years because she wanted to write a book about his family.

The head of Ringling Bros.-Barnum & Bailey Circus farmed out a covert op which put top Agency operatives on the payroll, just to torment a writer.

Assume, just for the sake of argument, that he may have had his reasons. It almost goes without saying that guys like Kenneth Feld, Jackson Stephens, and Clair George usually do.

Still, a guy whose company based right beside the runways at the Venice Airport knows CIA honchos like Clair George, who ran Latin America for the Agency under then-Vice President Bush during the period of Iran Contra during the '80’s.

Taking down governments is right up his alley. Taking down a hapless journalist must have been cake.

Jackson Stephens, Clair George...

We have just realized that we are in the process of collecting 'snapshots' from the security cameras out at the Venice Airport.

We are creating a mug file of people who can fairly be labeled the Usual Suspects.

Down at the Naples, Florida airport "entrepreneur" Rudi Dekkers has offices next to Casablanca Air.

It would be a disservice to the memory of Humphrey Bogart to quip "Everybody comes to Rudi's."

But it might very well be true.

Eric Hufschmid [|Painful
Questions: An Analysis of the September 11th Attack]

blatant disinformation
Refers to that which pretends to be genuine 9/11 Truth research but contains one or more elements designed to "put-off" one or more types of people. This way, articles can be written and critiques broadcast on television that point the public to the disinformation as if it were representative of the real movement behind 9/11 Truth. It also serves as a foil for ((subtle disinformation)). A prime example of blatant disinformation is ((video fakery - no plane hit the towers))--not to be confused with the claim that no plane hit the Pentagon, which is quite possible, or the claim that no plane hit WTC building 7, which is an established fact.

subtle disinformation
Refers to attempts to control the truth movement from within, often relying on attacking ((blatant disinformation)) and thereby establishing itself as an authority on disinformation, especially effective on "newbies" who have an incomplete impression of who is whom at first. Subtle disinformation strives not necessarily to scuttle the movement outright but to introduce any number of problems with any number of methods, including sowing discord, encouraging fear and/or apathy, shielding the real perpetrators by offering red herrings, etc.

going fetzal
Refers to the process whereby a subtle disinfo shill "comes out" as a shill by becoming a blatant disinfo shill. Named after Prof. ((Jim Fetzer)) of the University of Minnesota who was perceived as an eccentric but intelligent academic until he began to promote the work of Clemson Professor ((Judy Wood)), another eccentric whose research included claims of space based directed energy weapons "dustifying" [sic] steel and concrete and "toasting cars" [sic]. Some erstwhile truthers who have gone Fetzal are ((Mike Ruppert)) (the first to actually go Fetzal, before the phenomenon was named, by declaring the truth movement dead and moving to Venezuela), ((David Shayler)) (who declared himself the messiah before making a lifestyle change to transvestism,) arguably ((Webster Tarpley)), just to name a few.

credibility capital
In the truth movement, the effectiveness of a genuine activist depends on their credibility. This is just as true for dishonest people posing as activists, whose intent is to thwart the exposure of the truth. If one is to mislead people, those people must believe what one is saying. People who lie constantly are seldom believed, and people who almost never lie can get away with a lie here and there--these occasional lies amount to "spending" ones credibility capital. In the 9/11 truth movement, there are a number of individuals who stand out as "well-known" activists, whistleblowers, or researchers because of their actual accomplishments or simply because they are heavily promoted. At times, those who want the truth to remain hidden feel that the truth movement is coming too close to the real truth (as opposed to the "truth-like" alternatives like ((LIHOP)) ) and will spend some credibility capital by having someone who is generally well regarded in the movement promote something unpopular--like a ((LIHOP)) scenario. When these ploys backfire they can be very costly and result in an individual's credibility rating to drop, often preciptously. see ((going fetzal))

LIHOP stands for Let It Happen On Purpose and suggests that the Bush administration knew that al Qaeda was planning an attack and let them carry out in order to advance their own agenda in response. It was popular early in the history of the truth movement, and still popular among some newcomers who are "easing in" to the truth. It has been argued that "((LIHOP)) always leads to ((MIHOP))" but the persistence of some in advocating it long after it has been dismissed by the vast majority of 9/11 researchers demonstrates its potential use as a ((limited hangout)).

MIHOP stands for Made It Happen On Purpose which suggests that ((the Bush administration)) actually planned the attacks themselves and carried them out using the ((CIA)), ((al Qaeda)), and/or real or alleged ((intelligence assets)).

ZIHOP is not a literal acronym but plays on the acronyms ((LIHOP)) and ((MIHOP)) to refer to the argument that American and Israeli ((Zionist))s were the primary architects of the attacks. (Zionists are by narrow definition supporters of a "Jewish" state, and by a slightly broader and more common definition supporters of a "Jewish" state in the former Palestine. Zionism is a political ideology, not a religious or ethnic identity. Evidence of this distinction is plentiful: there are many people who identify as Jewish who do not support the "Jewish state" and many Christians, fundamental or otherwise, who vehemently do.)

ZIHOP is an argument based on the "means, motive, opportunity" rubric. It refers equally to the participation of agents of the Israeli state and Zionist partisans who are US or other non-Israeli citizens.

Zionist means: Israel is a developed country with an advanced military, high tech industry, and intelligence apparatuses that have global reach. American Zionists (both Christian and those who identify as Jewish) wield extraordinary political influence in the United States as well as holding positions of power in the American military, intelligence services, and high tech industry.

Zionist motive: ZIHOP posits a two-fold motive for Zionist involvement in the planning and execution of the 9/11 attacks. Promoting/strengthening a global political alignment with the Israeli state and recruitment of the American military and popular sentiment to support regional wars that benefit Israel is one. The other is "normalizing" the idea of an ongoing terror threat in America and a concomitant suppression of human rights in the name of "security." This motive is reflected in the words attibuted to an Israeli agent arrested in the U.S. on 9/11 to the officer arresting him: "We are not your problem, we are Israeli. Your problem is our problem--the Palestinians are the problem."

Zionist opportunity: To reiterate, Zionists are found not only in the Israeli government and intelligence services but in those of the U.S. ZIHOP is not an ((outside job theory)) as has been suggested, often by dishonest Jew hate baiters, but a theory that recognizes a separation of inside and outside actors as a fallacy.

A supporter of a (currently 'the') Jewish state in Palestine. This means that they support the seizure of Palestinian land for the creation of a state where Jewish people have more rights than people who aren't Jewish. Zionists know that most Jews in the world would never want to live in Israel so they instead demand that these Jews give unconditional financial and political support to the Zionist regime from wherever they live.

Zionists are known to stage attacks against Jewish people in order to blame others and scare Jewish people into supporting them. Zionists in Germany during the rise of Nazism expressed approval of the Nazi philosophy of pure ethnic/racial states and offered Hitler their support in exchange for Germany's support of a Jewish state in Palestine. During the height of the persecution and deportation of Jews, Zionists used their political connections to ensure that the fewest Jewish refugees possible would be allowed to enter the U.S. or Britain in order to have as many as possible sent to Palestine.

Prominent anti-Zionist Jews include Israel Shahak, Joel Kovel, Gilad Atzmon, Norman Finkelstein, and the Rabbis of Neturei Karta. For the most part, anti-Zionists (including Iranian President Ahmedinejad) think Jews currently living in Israel should be allowed to stay, that Palestinians forced out in the past should be allowed to return, and that the land currently divided between Israel and the Palestinian territories should be made into a single state where all citizens have equal rights.
Someone who is selling something, usually dishonestly. In 9/11 Truth, a shill, or someone who shills (also used as a verb,) is considered to be promoting a particular idea for the purpose of covering up the actual truth. Example: ((Popular Mechanics)) are shills for the ((OCT)) (official conspiracy theory,) whereas fake truthers ((Jim Hoffman)), ((Arabesque)), and ((Victronix)) all shill from within the 9/11 truth movement for the idea that AA77 really did hit the Pentagon when it clearly did not.

limited hangout
The revealing of a small part of a larger hidden truth in order to make people think that the entire truth has been revealed and it is time to move on, stop questioning, etc. In 9/11 studies, ((LIHOP)) is considered a limited hangout because even by "revealing" the alleged fact that the Bush administration simply "let it happen" the bulk of the official story would remain intact, that is, it would still be "true" that we were attacked by evil Arab/Muslim terrorists.

7/7: Europe's terror scam -the final clues?
By ewing2001
Thu Aug 18 2005

Dear correspondents,

in december 2004, my other yahoo account was shutdown
without any warning. I lost 1000s of email addresses.

Only a few days later our website at was hacked for the 5th time
and my admin had to retire.
In the same time, an electronic shutdown in our TV
studio destroyed my system files from my Linux Box.

These and other political irritations within the 9/11
truth movement had been one of many reasons, why i
retired in january 2005, and turned both daily news
portal and weekly blog into archive modus only.

I decided also to retire from 9/11 research and
-activism and leave INN World Report.

I only remained with team8plus and some mailing lists.
The following article will be the only exception for
this year and it's concentrating on the 7/7 attacks

I continue to doubt that the controlled opposition
within this movement will be exposed in a proper way.

My respect goes to those individuals who are still not
too scared to speak out on our general deceptions
within our society.

This week, i was finally able to recover most files
from my linux box. Therefore hello to everyone, i
wasn't able to contact for 6 months.

I will remain in isolation. Good luck everyone :)

Nico Haupt aka ewing2001
One of a pair of sites (the other is (( ) associated with ((Jim Hoffman)) and partner ((Victronix)), which mix advocacy of the WTC explosive demolition hypothesis with strident denunciation of alternative theories about the Pentagon. purports to contextualize the 9/11 events and includes a lot of analysis of "truth movement disinfo." It also links to (( quite a bit, especially for Pentagon-related analysis, despite the fact that oilempire's ((Mark Robinowitz)) is one of the most shrill (or is that shill?) deniers of explosive demolition. For a delightful answer to both parties' insistence on the idea that a large passenger jet crashed at the Pentagon, see the essays of ((Dave McGowan)).
Dave McGowan
Writer of conspiracy and media analysis essays for his site [|Center for an Informed America]. He applies his witty, vulgar, incisive writing skills to a variety of topics, including the "[|Tattoo Theorists]" -- the people like ((Jim Hoffman)), ((Victronix)), ((Arabesque)), and ((Mark Robinowitz)) who continue to insist that a large commercial jetliner hit the Pentagon. (Named after the sidekick character on "Fantasy Island" who started every episode with "Ze plane! Ze plane!")

Mark Robinowitz
Mark Robinowitz is an Oregon 9/11 skeptic and devotee of ((Mike Ruppert)) who divides his time (and mental bandwidth) between denunciations of alternative Pentagon theories, promulgation of Peak Oil related ((doomshillery)), and harassing ((David Ray Griffin)) at public speaking events. His website is (( and is heavy on the Bush-blaming and Arab/Muslim-fearing. He ascribes a tremendous amount of significance to the various war games taking place on 9/11. He is a strident denier of WTC explosive demolitions theories and in the same fashion as ((Jon Gold)) is proud to parade his lack of basic science knowledge as a means to discourage investigations into the means by which the WTC was destroyed. ("If I can't understand it, nobody can!")

David Ray Griffin
David Ray Griffin is a retired theologian and college professor of religion who has become one of the 9/11 Truth Movement's most prolific researcher/writers. His seminal work was ''The New Pearl Harbor''. One of the most popular and credible spokespersons for 9/11 truth, criticism of Griffin tends to include his belief in global governance (not "one world government") and his general avoidance of discussion of ((Zionist)) links to 9/11. is part of the ((Jim Hoffman)) and ((Victronix)) web-presence, along with ((, focusing on the 9/11 events themselves and a deconstruction of the official narrative.

The practice of promoting fear and paranoia through the announcement of impending catastrophes of one form or another, often combined with sales of products that will help you weather the storm. Prominent exemplars are ((Alex Jones)) and ((Mike Ruppert)). Doomshilling serves to make gullible would-be actvists into paranoid and anti-social "crackpots" who are both ineffectual and give activists a bad image. Examples of doom include but are not limited to ((Peak Oil)), impending martial law, economic meltdown, environmental catastrophe, or "another 9/11".

airport security theater
::{img src= width= height= align= desc= link= }::

Airport security theater
refers to the amped-up search protocols which have been in place since 9/11, which do a much better job of reinforcing a fear of terrorist hijackings in passengers than in "preventing" attacks on airplanes.

With each new fake terror charade that takes place, such as a developmentally delayed man attempting to light a fuse leading to his shoe, an additional "act" is added to the security pantomime. Now we take our shoes off for the show. Following the alleged attempt to convert airplane bathrooms into high tech labs for the production of liquid explosives from components smuggled aboard in drink bottles, we now have to display our 3-oz bottles of personal hygiene products in plastic bags as another featured entertainment. The unfortunate man who evidently went to the restroom to rig a bomb in his briefs, but then returned to his seat to (fail to) ignite it had people joking about flying nude in the future, and the manufacturers of full-body scanners creamed themselves in anticipation.

The point is, every time you go to the airport, you are required to play your part in terror theater, acting the part of the frightened, compliant traveler who is ready to take off her clothes and submit to whatever the TSA has in mind. This participatory propaganda at least as effective than the Two Minutes' Hate endured by Winston Smith in manufacturing misdirected fear and loathing. The reason the fear is misdirected is that in each case, an examination of the terror non-event -- such as the recent Times Square Fizzle -- reveals a story full of holes and barely obscuring what is in all likelihood another patsy show.

special pleading
From [|The Free Dictionary]

special pleading
1. Law Assertion of new or special matter to offset the opposing party's allegations, as an alternative to direct denial.
2. A presentation of an argument that emphasizes only a favorable or single aspect of the question at issue.

special pleading
n Law
1. (Law) a pleading that alleges new facts that offset those put forward by the other side rather than directly admitting or denying those facts
2. (Law) a pleading that emphasizes the favourable aspects of a case while omitting the unfavourable

Collins English Dictionary – Complete and Unabridged © HarperCollins Publishers 1991, 1994, 1998, 2000, 2003

From [|Wikipedia], the free encyclopedia

Special pleading is a form of spurious argumentation where a position in a dispute introduces favorable details or excludes unfavorable details by alleging a need to apply additional considerations without proper criticism of these considerations themselves. Essentially, this involves someone attempting to cite something as an exemption to a generally accepted rule, principle, etc. without justifying the exemption.

The lack of criticism may be a simple oversight (e.g., a reference to common sense) or an application of a double standard.

A more difficult case is when a possible criticism is made relatively immune to investigation. This immunity may take the forms of:

* reference to vocabulary that is owned by a distinct community with sole rights to assess meaning and application

Example: Many blacks themselves now use the word nigger without meaning insult, so other people should not be stigmatized for using it.

* unexplained claims of exemption from principles commonly thought relevant to the subject matter

Example: I'm not relying on faith in small probabilities here. These are slot machines, not roulette wheels. They are different.

* claims to data that are inherently unverifiable, perhaps because too remote or impossible to define clearly

Example: Cocaine use should be legal. Like all drugs, it does have some adverse health effects, but cocaine is different from other drugs. Many have benefited from the effects of cocaine.

* assertion that the opponent lacks the qualifications necessary to comprehend a point of view

Example: I know you think that I should be giving my money to the poor, but you've never been rich before. There are things about wealth that you don't understand.

* assertion that literally nobody has the qualifications necessary to comprehend a point of view

Example: I know the idea that ball lightning is caused by ghosts makes no sense to you, but that's only because you're human. Humans cannot understand supernatural phenomena.

In the classic distinction among material, psychological, and logical fallacies,[1] special pleading most likely falls within the category of psychological fallacy, as it would seem to relate to "lip service", rationalization, and diversion (abandonment of discussion). Special pleading also often resembles the "appeal to" logical fallacies.

In philosophy, it is assumed that wherever a distinction is claimed, a relevant basis for the distinction should exist and be substantiated. Special pleading is a subversion of this assumption.
straw man
A straw man argument is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position.


Person A claims: Sunny days are good.

Argument Person B: If all days were sunny, we'd never have rain, and without rain, we'd have famine and death. You are obviously wrong.

Problem: B has falsely framed A's claim to imply that A says that only sunny days are good, and has argued against that assertion instead of the assertion A has made.

Aldo Marquis
One half of the ((Citizen Investigation Team)) that collected video testimony from Pentagon eyewitnesses apparently indicating a flight path (north of the Citgo station) incompatible with the official story and suggestive of a ((flyover)).

Craig Ranke
One half of the ((Citizen Investigation Team)) that collected video testimony from Pentagon eyewitnesses apparently indicating a flight path (north of the Citgo station) incompatible with the official story and suggestive of a ((flyover)).
The idea that the plane that eyewitnesses report having flown into the Pentagon instead flew ''over'' the Pentagon simultaneously with an explosion in the building, causing the illusion of an impact that did not in fact occur.

Alex Jones
Loud-mouthed "shock jock" type radio personality from Texas considered by some to be a leading figure in the truth movement, and by others to be ((controlled opposition)). Claims to have predicted 9/11 before it happened, though he is accused of merely parroting what ((William Cooper)) was saying at the time. Owns the ((Prison Planet)) and ((Infowars)) franchises. Has claimed previously that Arabs control the U.S. media, criticized for that and other reasons for being an apologist for Zionism and a downplayer of its role in 9/11. Rants frequently against global government, feminism, multiculturalism, the alleged ((New World Order)), and the ((Bilderberg Group)). Promotes ((doomshillery)), notably the idea that FEMA has prepared a number of internment camps in preparation for the declaration of martial law in the U.S.

William Cooper
Bill Cooper is the guy who first (before ((Alex Jones)) allegedly repeated it) warned of Osama bin Laden being used in a false flag attack, just 3 months or so before 9/11. He was allegedly killed by the feds a few weeks after 9/11. Cooper had basically been the ((Alex Jones)) of the 90's, when he published ((Behold a Pale Horse)), which as of this writing has a relatively high #2176 ranking among all Amazon books. It is a hodge podge of "conspiranoia" including UFOs, which according to one reviewer Cooper since disavowed, claiming the documents he had seen were government ((disinformation)). One reviewer also states that Cooper was an intelligence officer during Vietnam.

UA 175
Flight alleged to have struck the ((South Tower)).

"Blowback" refers to the belief that militant groups can be trained by the intelligence apparatuses of other countries and then "go rogue" or "bite the hand that feeds them" by using techniques and material supplied by foreign governments to attack those same governments, either locally or abroad. This theory is often connected to 9/11 by people who would like to believe that the members mujahadeen of Afghanistan, having been trained by the CIA to serve US Cold War interests in the fight against the Soviet Union, turned around and bit us in the ass on 9/11. In one of its more pernicious (and irritating) forms, it comes attached to the idea that you are a racist if you don't give credence to the idea that a third world fighting force (al Qaeda -- said to have grown out of groups initially sponsored by the US) could succeed in striking the heart of the Empire in ways that violate the laws of physics.

See also ((Blowback 2.0))

Mohammed Atta
((Alleged)) ultimate recipient of alleged ((pork chop transfer)). Alleged hijacker of ((AA11)), the alleged identity of a ((plane)) that flew into the ((North Tower)). No hard evidence exists for that identification.
Alleged A claim for which no ((hard evidence)) exists.

hard evidence
Evidence a lawyer wouldn't bother contesting because it is so solid and evidently true on its face.

Physical evidence that could not conceivably be convincingly faked would be considered hard evidence by most. What is not generally agreed on is what constitutes a convincing fake, as people's gullibility and dishonesty both vary. While some types of hard evidence are irrefutable, people can still dishonestly claim not to believe them, often by resorting to claiming not to understand them.

No hard evidence exists linking bin Laden to the 9/11 attacks, according to the FBI. Alleged videos of bin Laden could be fakes and a lawyer might consider challenging the authenticity of one or more of them. Most reasonable people would agree there is a case to be made for most if not all existing alleged post-9/11 video recordings of Osama bin Laden being fakes, and not very good ones at that.

No hard evidence exists for the positive identification of the four planes allegedly hijacked on 9/11 as the flights alleged (or even for the presence of any plane at the Pentagon and ((in Shanksville)).) Crash investigators routinely collect all of an aircraft's part to "reconstruct" in a large hangar so as to glean any information possible as to the nature and cause of the crash however this was never done for any of the flights involved in 9/11.

No hard evidence exists for the identity of the alleged passengers on the alleged flights, since none of their bodies were recovered intact. DNA test results could easily be fabricated, especially if the alleged passengers are in on the crime, perhaps for financial gain through the ((Victim Compensation Fund)) or other sources. This does not necessarily mean that everything ''was'' faked, it means that since everything ''could have been'' faked it cannot trump irrefutable hard evidence.
in Shanksville
The official account alleges that the reason little to no wreckage is visible at the scene of the alleged crash of UA93 is because the ground was soft and the plane embedded itself completely into the ground, including, presumably, each of the two six-ton steel and titanium engines which should have been recovered and preserved. These parts have never been publicly displayed, even just in pictures.

controlled opposition
When one group secretly controls another that is publicly critical of it in order to frame the debate in as favorable a light to itself as possible.
outside job
The idea that the 9/11 attacks were planned by non-U.S. government or Silverstein Properties actors, without the consent of the U.S. government.

Blowback 2.0
"Blowback 2.0" is part of the cluster of concepts connected to ((ZIHOP)). It refers to the hypothesis that the "Jewish State" was originally the product of both Jewish Zionists and influential non-Jewish groups (also Zionists) who saw an advantage to having a "colonial outpost" on prime real estate in the Near East. Whereas this "Jewish State" may have been intended by non-Jewish Zionists to act as a client state, at some point the balance of power began to shift. It is now unclear who is the client of whom. ((False flag attacks)) such as the ((Lavon affair)) and the destruction of the ((USS Liberty)) seem to have been the primary means by which Zionists have waged asymmetrical warfare whenever the dog is reluctant to be wagged by the tail.

Salvador Gersson Smeck
Arrested at Mexican parliament in possession of weapons shortly after 9/11.

Saer Ben-Zvi
Arrested in Mexican parliament in possession of weapons shortly after 9/11.

al Qaeda
In official storyland, al Qaeda is the name of the particular "brand" of Islamic terrorism associated with Saudi billionaire's son Osama bin Laden. Al Qaeda has a network of bases carved into the rugged mountains of Afghanistan that no U.S. or allied forces have been able to destroy, or even find.

passenger fakery
We have been told that there were four flights that experienced hijackings on September 11, 2001. We have not been shown anything close to conclusive evidence that these flights boarded, took off, flew, and crashed that day. Instead it has been suggested that it is wrong to question the official version of events, for various reasons. Among them, the idea that to do so is extremely upsetting to the families of the alleged victims. With my sincerest dommages to any legitimate victim's family members to whom our skepticism causes emotional discomfort, here are a few possible categories, beginning with the official version...

!!The OCT
All the passengers named in the official story are real people who really died when their planes were really crashed by real fanatical arab muslim hijackers. They are to be honored, respected, and commemorated and (obviously) never have their legitimacy questioned.

!!The "Loose Change" version aka the Cleveland Swap version
At least one of the real 9/11 flights with real passengers actually landed somewhere, where the real passengers were killed by the real perpetrators, whoever they may have been (but probably the CIA, which also pretends to be al Qaeda. Or they might have been gassed, possibly through the on board margarine cup/enema bag emergency air system. Think Northwoods. Think alBushCiada.

!!The "everything is fake" version
The passengers who are not "famous" i.e. known to the public to have definitely existed before 9/11, are fictional people--little more than names on a piece of paper. By offering Victim Compensation Fund payouts to anyone who lost a close relative (or claimed to) on 9/11, the perps could have the U.S. taxpayer bankroll their bribery of people to make the legal claim of the fictional passengers' existence. And still the four 9/11 flights were supposed to have been on average a mere 30% occupied (which incidentally means it would be carrying less fuel than if it were overbooked). The "flight manifests" that are publicly available are not originals, or even copies of originals, they are lists of names on a printout from some computer, so we can presume that the real manifests don't exist. The famous passengers like Barbara Olson are either still alive or have died at some point in the years since 9/11 (including by possible foul play). Faking your death is the best way to avoid paying taxes, and probably offers many people a welcome new lease on life as it were.

Debunking 9-11 Debunking

Shure Alias of internet persona purporting to be a Canadian 9/11 truth advocate. Promoted no-plane hit the towers theories before claiming to see the error of his ways. Known for making phone calls to individuals of interest to the 9/11 truth movement, including alleged eyewitnesses. A rare example of a good call was the call to Danny Jowenko to confirm that he had not retracted his statements on wtc7 made on a Dutch television show. In another phone call, to a demolition company, he asks the person who answers the phone what "pull it" means in demolition jargon. In some phone calls Shure behaved as if intoxicated as he harassed alleged eyewitnesses. Most recently Shure has adopted a purely LIHOP stance, abusively deriding David Ray Griffin and "controlled demolition theories".
