9/11 - Inside job

 
. Far from ordering a full and objective investigation to
determine who was responsible for the 9/11 tragedies, the
Bush administration dragged its feet and actually took
actions to impede a swift and truthful probe into the events
of that day. It was nearly two years after the events that
mounting pressure from the public, led by families of 9/11
victims, finally forced the creation of an "independent"
investigatory commission.

SUMMARY OF JIM MARRS' KEY FINDINGS ABOUT 9/11

Excerpted from Jim Marrs' INSIDE JOB

. A wide variety of standard defense mechanisms designed to
prevent such an attack systematically failed on 9/11.
Especially notable are the atypical failures which occurred
simultaneously within the Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA), the National Military Command Center (NMCC), and the
North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), all charged
with protecting US airspace.

. Interceptor jets were not scrambled for more than thirty
minutes after it was obvious that four airliners had gone off
course and were presumably hijacked. In the case of Flight
77, which reportedly slammed into the Pentagon, an hour and
forty-five minutes elapsed with no interception.

. Missile batteries designed to protect Washington, DC, failed
to stop the strike on the Pentagon, one of the world's most
protected structures, and fighter jets on constant alert at
Andrews Air Force Base just twelve miles away were never
scrambled.

. By a "bizarre coincidence," two government homeland defense
agencies (NORAD and the NRO) were practicing war games on the
morning of 9/11. The games simulated responses to a scenario
in which hijacked planes were crashed into buildings. This
fact could explain the government's lack of rapid response to
the real hijackings, yet this plausible alibi has never been
brought to public attention. One also wonders: How did the
hijackers know the time and date of these war games in order
to time their attacks to coincide with them?

. President Bush proceeded with a photo op at a Florida
elementary school even after he and his aides knew that three
planes had been hijacked. He lingered in the classroom for
nearly twenty minutes after being informed that a second
plane had struck the World Trade Center (WTC).

. Not one steel-framed high-rise building in history has
collapsed solely due to fire. The free-fall speed collapse of
the Trade Center towers, with attendant melted steel and
powdery dust, exhibited all the characteristics of a
controlled demolition.

. Just such a controlled demolition apparently occurred about 5
p.m. that same day when, according to the leaseholder of the
WTC complex, the 47-story Building 7 was "pulled," i.e.,
intentionally demolished.

. Vital evidence, including the buildings' structural steel,
was destroyed through rapid removal and destruction by US
government officials with no investigation. This is only one
of the many reasons why Fire Engineering magazine called the
official investigation "a half-baked farce."

. An eight-mile-long debris trail indicated that Flight 93 was
destroyed in the air rather than in the Pennsylvania crash
reportedly caused by an onboard struggle between the
hijackers and passengers.

. More than a dozen countries firmly warned US authorities that
an attack on American soil was imminent, some only days
before the events.

. Strong evidence points to complicity in the attacks by senior
intelligence operatives from Israel and Pakistan who are
closely aligned with American intelligence agencies.

. A classified Congressional report incriminates senior
officials in the Saudi Arabian government, showing that they
had close ties to the hijackers. The Saudis enjoy long-term
business and social ties to the Bush family and close
political ties to the US government.

. The US government expedited the swift departure of over 100
Saudis from the country, even as the American public had been
denied the right to fly. Two dozen members of bin Laden's own
family, presumably potential witnesses, were allowed to leave
the country without interrogation.

. Insiders with foreknowledge of the events to come engaged in
massive and highly profitable short-selling of shares in
American Airlines and United Airlines, as well as other
stocks readily affected by the disaster. The public has still
not been presented with the final results of official
investigations into these transactions-if there are any.

. A growing number of whistleblowers from within the federal
government have pointed to evidence that various agencies
were well aware of the possibility of attack, and were
prevented by seniors officials from mounting full
investigations.

. Far from being a mere reaction to 9/11, evidence now proves
that the US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq were the
culmination of long-standing plans which only awaited a
provocation such as 9/11.

. The official explanations for the invasion of Iraq, such as
the need to capture weapons of mass destruction, and to
"bring democracy" to the country, have proven false.

. Within a few hours, the FBI released names and photos of the
suspected hijackers although later many of those named turned
up alive in the Middle East.

. Also within hours of the attacks, FBI agents were scouring
the houses, restaurants, and flight schools they frequented.
If no one had foreknowledge of the hijackers or their
activities, how did they know where to look?

. Far from ordering a full and objective investigation to
determine who was responsible for the 9/11 tragedies, the
Bush administration dragged its feet and actually took
actions to impede a swift and truthful probe into the events
of that day. It was nearly two years after the events that
mounting pressure from the public, led by families of 9/11
victims, finally forced the creation of an "independent"
investigatory commission.

. No one in government has been reprimanded or even scolded for
what we are told was the greatest intelligence and
homeland-defense failure in US history. In fact, the very
agencies which failed the nation watched their budgets
increase dramatically, and some of the officials ostensibly
at fault were actually promoted.

. No person in government, other than former National Security
Council counterterrorism chief Richard A. Clarke, has felt
the need to apologize to the American people for the 9/11
security failure.

. President Bush himself declined to apologize for the 9/11
tragedy to either the American public or to victims' families
during an April 2004 press conference, despite being
presented with the opportunity to do so at least three times.

No one seems to be asking one common-sense question

How can we be so sure that the evidence is not tainted or *repackaged* after *TWO*
years since the incident?
