THE DAY ITSELF - EVIDENCE OF COMPLICITY
1) AWOL Chain of Command
a. It is well documented that the officials topping the chain of command
for response to a domestic attack - George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Richard
Myers, Montague Winfield - all found reason to do something else during
the actual attacks, other than assuming their duties as decision-makers.
b. Who was actually in charge? Dick Cheney, Richard Clarke, Norman Mineta
and the 9/11 Commission directly conflict in their accounts of top-level
response to the unfolding events, such that several (or all) of them must
2) Air Defense Failures
a. The US air defense system failed to follow standard procedures for
responding to diverted passenger flights.
b. Timelines: The various responsible agencies - NORAD, FAA, Pentagon,
USAF, as well as the 9/11 Commission - gave radically different explanations
for the failure (in some cases upheld for years), such that several officials
must have lied; but none were held accountable.
c. Was there an air defense standdown?
3) Pentagon Strike
How was it possible the Pentagon was hit 1 hour and 20 minutes after the
attacks began? Why was there no response from Andrews Air Force Base,
just 10 miles away and home to Air National Guard units charged with defending
the skies above the nation''s capital? How did Hani Hanjour, a man who
failed as a Cessna pilot on his first flight in a Boeing, execute a difficult
aerobatic maneuver to strike the Pentagon? Why did the attack strike the
just-renovated side, which was largely empty and opposite from the high
a. US military and other authorities planned or actually rehearsed defensive
response to all elements of the 9/11 scenario during the year prior to
the attack - including multiple hijackings, suicide crashbombings, and
a strike on the Pentagon.
b. The multiple military wargames planned long in advance and held on
the morning of September 11th included scenarios of a domestic air crisis,
a plane crashing into a government building, and a large-scale emergency
in New York. If this was only an incredible series of coincidences, why
did the official investigations avoid the issue? There is evidence that
the wargames created confusion as to whether the unfolding events were
"real world or exercise." Did wargames serve as the cover for
air defense sabotage, and/or the execution of an "inside job"?
5) Flight 93
Did the Shanksville crash occur at 10:06 (according to a seismic report)
or 10:03 (according to the 9/11 Commission)? Does the Commission wish
to hide what happened in the last three minutes of the flight, and if
so, why? Was Flight 93 shot down, as indicated by the scattering of debris
over a trail of several miles?
THE DAY - POSSIBLE SMOKING GUNS
6) Did cell phones work at
30,000 feet in 2001? How many hijackings were attempted? How many flights
7) Demolition Hypothesis
What caused the collapse of a third skyscraper, WTC 7, which was not hit
by a plane? Were the Twin Towers and WTC 7 brought down by explosives?
