More than three years [now more than 14 years] after September 11th 2001 there has still not been any official investigation which provides answers to the many unanswered questions concerning the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon (in contrast to the case of the Columbia space shuttle disaster, where three official investigations were initiated within days and within months we knew what actually happened and who was responsible). The President and Vice-President of the United States are known to have actively discouraged any such investigation, strongly indicating that they have something to hide, as surely they do, namely, their complicity in the attacks of September 11th.
The World Trade Center Demolition
and the So-Called War on Terrorism
During ten months of probing by a joint House-Senate investigation headed by former prosecutor and Pentagon inspector general Eleanor Hill, staff members reviewed classified documents made available by U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies. They also interviewed field agents, spooks, and senior government officials. The Senate and House intelligence committees approved the report, but the White House insisted that it be "scrubbed" before being released — that is, cleansed of any hint that the attack might have been prevented. — "The Final Secret of 9/11" [APFN link expired]
Instead of an open inquiry into what happened, and how the U.S. Air Force (with jet fighters ready to scramble just ten minutes from Washington) failed to prevent three allegedly hijacked commercial jetliners from crashing into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, there is a growing chorus of protest that we have been fed blatant lies by the Bush administration assisted by the mainstream media.
The so-called 9/11 Independent Commission was a fraud from start to finish, concealing the truth, rather than revealing it (see Ex-Senator Bob Kerrey appointed to 9/11 panel and 9/11 could have been prevented, 9/11 chair admits). The major outlines of the truth can already be known by anyone whose mind is not closed and who wishes to know. Eventually it will be generally recognized and acknowledged, and those responsible will be revealed. George W. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Ashcroft, Myers, Eberhardt, Powell, Perle, Wolfowitz, Feith and the others know it, which is one reason why they launched their war on Iraq before the citizens of the U.S. (at least, those few who care about what America has traditionally stood for) could bring these traitors to justice for their crimes and thereby help to defeat the attempt to transform the U.S., and the rest of the world, into a police state and the Earth into a prison planet.
At stake is the future of not only the nation, but the whole world, and all our futures, and if we the people don't take some sort of constructive action about the lies that continue to be told in this matter, then our future is very, very dark. — John Kaminski, Why I Write
In March and April 2004 a series of high-level Bush administration figures appeared before the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, a.k.a. the September 11th Commission, chaired by Thomas Kean. These figures included Richard Clarke, Condoleezza Rice, George Tenet and John Ashcroft. There was a lot of blame cast around regarding "intelligence failures" prior to September 11th. Richard Clarke even "apologized" to the families of those who were killed on September 11th for having "failed" them. Much attention was given to the Presidential Daily Briefing of August 6th, entitled "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the United States". This was all stage-managed by the propaganda experts in the White House. All of this hand-wringing and blame was designed to reinforce the official story: that nineteen Arabs, Al-Qaeda operatives, hijacked four commercial airliners and crashed three of them into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. The greater the controversy and the more spectacular the accusations the better for the Bush administration, since this theatre was designed to distract attention from the questions which should have been asked of those appearing before the Commission, such as: Why was there no video evidence of any Arabs boarding the UA and AA flights? Why did the U.S. Air Force not follow standard operating procedure and scramble interceptor jets within fifteen minutes of the commercial planes going off-course? Why did both of the Twin Towers collapse in the manner of a controlled demolition? Why was there no evidence found at the Pentagon of the impact of a Boeing 757? What were the results of the SEC's investigation into highly unusual trading in United Airlines and American Airlines stock in the days just before 9/11? Why was the steel from the collapsed Twin Towers immediately shipped off to India and China with almost no forensic examination? What actually happened on September 11th? None of these questions were ever asked by the Kean Commission. Its purpose was not to get at the truth but to suppress it. The tactics it employed are completely transparent. It is because of the deception perpetrated upon the American public by the mainstream media that this is not entirely obvious to anyone with the slightest capacity to think. Treason and mass murder has been committed by officials at the highest level of the United States government, and everyone in that government and in the mainstream media continues to take part in the cover-up.
The news that the official story is a cover-up of something very nasty started to make headlines in the second half of 2003 (two years after 9/11 occurred!), and continues:
- Gail Sheehy, New York Observer, 2003-08-25: Four 9/11 Moms Battle Bush
This concerns the refusal of the country's leadership to be held accountable for the failure to execute its most fundamental responsibility.
- Timothy J. Burger, Time Magazine, 2003-12-20: Condi and the 9/11 Commission
National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice is apparently not keen on going under oath for the Kean 9/11 commission.

What don't we know, and why don't we know it?
- Philadelphia Inquirer, 2004-01-29: Editorial | 9/11 Investigation
If America hopes to prevent another attack, one of the best strategies is an unblinking examination of the events surrounding Sept. 11, 2001.
- Philadelphia Daily News, 2004-01-29: A 9/11 COVER UP? WHY WON'T BUSH COOPERATE WITH INVESTIGATORS?
It was the Bush administration, remember, that resisted mightily the creation of this commission and then .. the Bush White House proceeded to stonewall, not turning over documents until subpoenaed.
- Paul Krugman, New York Times / IHT, 2004-03-17: Why Bush hasn't captured bin Laden
Why ... has his [Bush's] inner circle tried so hard to prevent a serious investigation of what happened on Sept. 11?
- Frank Rich, New York Times / IHT, 2004-03-27: White House's new ally: faux journalism
No fake news story has become more embedded in our culture than the administration's account of its actions on Sept. 11. ... — many of this story's most familiar details are utter fiction. ... Yet the fake narrative of Sept. 11 has been scrupulously maintained by the White House for more than two years.
- Nick Welsh, Santa Barbara Independent, 2004-04-01: Thinking Unthinkable Thoughts — an interview with David Ray Griffin
Members of the FBI, the CIA, and other intelligence agencies have taken oaths to not reveal things they've been told not to reveal ... and if they violate this oath, repercussions may occur. You have a wife and children ... People ... learn very quickly to keep their mouths shut. ... I at least hope that if we can begin to get a public discussion of 9/11 and of the many, many discrepancies between the official story and what at least appear to be the facts, that some of those people might be emboldened to step forward.
- Marc Estrin, Counterpunch, 2004-05-25: September Song: A Review of The New Pearl Harbor
The implications of the accumulated evidence is that the Bush administration was complicit in the events of September 11th, and not merely a victim of structural problems or incompetence on the part of the intelligence establishment.
- Antonia Zerbisias, Toronto Star, 2004-05-26: Poking holes in the official story of 9/11
Why were fighter jets not scrambled in time to stop the planes from smashing into the buildings? Why did the U.S. chain of command — including the commander-in-chief Bush — not act when the hijackings were in progress? Why were so many warnings missed? And why did it take the Kean Commission — Washington's official 9/11 inquiry — so long to get going, and only after the bereaved families noisily lobbied for more than a year?
- Alan Cabal, New York Press, 2004-07-27: Miracles and Wonders
Last week, USA Today reported a joint effort between Qualcomm and American Airlines' to allow passengers to make cellphone calls from aircraft in flight. ... Before this ... it was nigh on impossible to make a call from a passenger aircraft in flight. Connection is impossible at altitudes over 8000 feet or speeds in excess of 230 mph.
- Greg Gordon, Star Tribune, 2004-07-31: Dayton: FAA, NORAD hid 9/11 failures
Dayton said NORAD officials "lied to the American people, they lied to Congress and they lied to your 9/11 commission to create a false impression of competence, communication and protection of the American people."
- Carole Brouillet, The Stanford Daily, 2004-10-20: The truth about Zelikow and the Sept. 11 cover-up commission
While Sept. 11 has been used to invade Afghanistan and Iraq, shred the Constitution and Bill of Rights, construct a global police state, enrich weapons manufacturers and seize oil assets, there have been no convictions in any courts of law supporting the government conspiracy theory, particularly the Saddam Hussein / Al Qaeda link.
- Mark Morford, SF Gate, 2004-10-27: Write More About Skull & Bones Secret societies? UFOs? The truth about what *really* happened on 9/11? The media cowers
After all, once you allow the real possibility ... that we could very well have a hugely malicious, criminal U.S. government capable of pulling a 9/11 on its own citizens, well, the happy capitalistic all-American Christian world begins to implode.
- Edmonton Sun, 2005-02-08: Held man doubts Osama did 9/11
A Morrocan-born Montrealer detained for nearly two years on suspicion of being a terrorist testified for the first time yesterday, suggesting ultra-conservative Americans may have been responsible for 2001 attacks on the United States.
- Victor Thorn, The Centre Daily Times, 2005-03-10: Author searches for truth on Trade Center collapse (Web page version here.)
[C]onsidering that 9-11 was the most traumatic event of the 21st century [so far], if there was even a one-percent chance that the government's official story was false, shouldn't we do everything humanly possible to discover what the truth ultimately is? Because, if the search for truth and justice doesn't matter to us in regard to 9-11, what does?
- Samara Kalk Derby, The Capitol Times, 2005-04-19: Theologian calls for response to 9/11
David Ray Griffin ... whose book, "The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11," came out a year ago, drew an enthusiastic standing ovation from the majority of the 400 or so people who packed his lecture Monday night at Bascom Hall [in Madison, WI].
- Bruce David and Carolyn Sinclair interview David Ray Griffin, Hustler Magazine, August 2004: What If Everything You Know About 9/11 Is Wrong?
- John Daly, 2005-06-13: UPI Hears About Prof. Morgan Reynolds on the WTC Collapse
At the time of George W. Bush's 2005 inaugural address the truth of 9/11 still remained buried, as far as the corporate-controlled mainstream media was concerned. Only on hundreds of websites have all the clues been given, and the facts and reasoning presented which establish beyond doubt that 9/11 was a massive hoax (one which involved the murder of nearly 3000 people) designed to produce "shock and awe" in the American public as a prelude to the institution of a police state in the US and the launching of wars of aggression around the world. The full consequences this abominable crime have yet to be felt by the American public. For their failure to seek the truth about what happened on 9/11, and to bring those responsible to justice, they will pay a heavy price: the destruction of their country and their own impoverishment, enslavement and (for many) death. Hard times are a-comin', boys, hard times.
This article, "The World Trade Center Demolition and the So-Called War on Terrorism", was written by Peter Meyer from September 2001 to January 2005. The earliest version, entitled The World Trade Center Bombing, and stating that "the [WTC] towers collapsed because explosives were carefully placed besides their structural supports", appeared on Serendipity on September 13th, 2001. And here's the page seven months later on April 13, 2002.
Note added by Peter Meyer, 2013-09-03:
The article by Chris Hedges, The Last Chance to Stop the NDAA (published 2013-09-02), is followed by many good comments. One of them, by notaname, begins:
Today US citizens everywhere have been given a piece of dynamite that can blow to smithereens the NDAA, the Patriot Act, Homeland Security, TSA, NSA, the whole police state apparatus. Architects and engineers for 9/11 truth, through a well argued, well-documented reconsideration of the evidence in juxtaposition with the government's story about 9/11 show there is no way the latter story can be granted any kind of credibility. Watch the documentary here:
and pass it on to everyone you know. The only way we the People of the United States of America are going to foil our corrupted courts, our corrupted Congress and our corrupted imperial Presidency is to look directly at the evidence and then insist upon impeachment and if successfully prosecuted, imprisonment of every governing party in any way related to this unconscionable travesty perpetrated against the citizenry of the United States on September 11, 2001.
