9/11 was a false-flag event; war was the hidden agenda

  • Comments

FAIRBANKS — The shock and awe of 9/11 gives way to reasoned analysis. Sixteen years of reflection and research concludes the official version of the New York City and Pentagon attacks is a cover story. It’s a finger-pointing ploy that exposes rot at the heart of the American empire. Authors of the 9/11 Commission Report now admit it ignores pertinent facts. We can surmise such omissions aim to hide the truth.

A false-flag event is a staged attack intended to catalyze an outcome. James Fetzer, a former Marine Corps officer and professor of philosophy, applied the label early on. Fetzer takes his doubts to the next level with a provocative analysis of the twin towers’ destruction. He presents evidence that shows micro-nuclear bombs, less than a kiloton in size, and located in the basements, caused the buildings’ collapse.

James Corbett, a researcher based in Japan, reminds his audience that on Sept. 10, 2001, the day before the attacks, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announced that the Pentagon had lost $2.3 trillion. Coincidental or preplanned, skilled psychopaths use a crisis to hide earlier crimes.

Field McConnell, a Marine Corps and Northwest Airlines pilot turned whistleblower, revealed in 2006 that airliners are fitted with Boeing Honeywell Uninterruptible Auto Pilots, software that transfers cockpit control to a remote site. Confidential to that point, the technology mocks the tale of Arabs hijacking airliners. McConnell’s contacts in civilian and military aviation lend credibility to his team’s scenario.

The crimes of 9/11 are among the most successful false-flags ever devised. The events in New York City and Washington, D.C., provided a calculated pretext for a score of illegal military invasions and occupations. The perpetrators’ real agenda was to spark national vengeance so our troops would do their bidding.

Nuclear bombs are the only known technology with the power to vaporize a target. Based on the known mass of each tower, the resulting rubble piles were vastly undersized. The majority of each building was turned to micron-sized dust, drifting through lower Manhattan, over the Hudson River and ultimately the Atlantic Ocean. Video supports witness accounts of pyroclastic clouds of hot dust moving like a nuclear bomb’s base surge.

As late as February 2002, thermal imaging revealed hot spots in the basements below the rubble pile. Cleanup vendor Bechtel Corp. issued a news release about working conditions, saying subsurface temperatures were as high as 2,800 degrees Fahrenheit. Photos from Ground Zero’s cleanup operation show mechanical claws pulling molten steel from a basement level.

In the immediate aftermath, the U.S. Geological Survey sampled soil at 35 locations in the vicinity of Ground Zero. Radioactive isotopes produced by nuclear explosions were found throughout collection zones, interior and exterior. Identification revealed heavy metals and radioactive elements: strontium, barium, lead, zinc, tritium, uranium, vanadium, chromium, manganese, antimony and molybdenum. EPA safety limits were significantly exceeded for all samples. Despite the hazards, the area was declared safe for workers and nearby residents.

As of June 2016, Newsweek reported 6,378 people with multiple cancers linked to 9/11. Epidemiologists who study health outcomes estimate 400,000 New Yorkers are likely to develop cancers or cognitive impairments that can be traced to 9/11. These include first responders, city workers, business owners and residents.

Oddly missing from the 9/11 Commission Report and most media: an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) cut electricity and communication lines. It also ignited fires that gutted hundreds of vehicles. Seismographs detected ground explosions; accounts of victims in basements with “hanging and melted skin” (also seen in Japanese A-bomb injuries); World Trace Center 7’s (47 stories) late-afternoon, free-fall collapse.

If the official story ignores extreme heat and explosions in the basements, acute radioactivity, specific trauma, seismic records, witness accounts, EMP effects and rampant cancer among those in close proximity, can it be trusted? I believe a more realistic scenario uses micro-nukes to vaporize the towers. Mayor Michael Bloomberg sought to censor fallout awareness by requiring permits to possess Geiger counters. He backed down under a barrage of criticism.

Distrust of the official story ramped up when then President Bush said anyone with doubts was a traitor. More recently, Bill Clinton angrily denounced an audience member for suggesting the federal government played a role in 9/11. And yet the cumulative weight of evidence suggests just that.

The cover story sold to Americans is bolstered by frequent doses of televised hypnosis. Slipping orthodoxy’s chokehold, independent journalists such as James Fetzer, James Corbett, Field McConnell and others chronicle uncomfortable facts about 9/11. As America’s awareness reaches critical mass, the criminal cadre that orchestrated 9/11 is working overtime to maintain the trance. Shake it off.
