Summary of Seismic Observations Study:

Since the time of plane impact at the Pentagon had often been reported with large scatter the
United States Army contacted us to inquire whether we could obtain an accurate time of the
Pentagon attack on September 11, 2001 based upon our seismic network. We analyzed seismic
records from five stations in the northeastern United States, ranging from 63 to 350 km from
the Pentagon.

Despite detailed analysis of the data, we could not find a clear seismic signal.

Even the closest station (^=62.8 km) at Soldier’s Delight, Baltimore County, Maryland (SDMD)
did not record the impact. We concluded that the plane impact to the Pentagon generated
relatively weak seismic signals. However, we positively identified seismic signals associated
with United Airlines Flight 93 that crashed near Shanksville, Somerset County, Pennsylvania.
The time of the UAL Flight 93 plane crash was 10:06:05 +-5 (EDT)

The complete study is at

(Note – Page 33 of The 9/11 Commission Report give a time of 10:03:11 as the time that United
Flight 93 crashed in Shanksville, Pa.)

(Note – Page 43 of the 9/11 Commission report has Vice Pres. Cheney updating Sec. of
Defense Rumsfeld at 10:39 AM “ And it’s my understanding they’ve already taken a couple
of aircraft out. “) This appears to be a reference to AA 77 that did not crash into the Pentagon
and UA Flight 93 that took 3 minutes to hit the ground after being shot down at 10:03 AM

RE: AA Flight 77
(Note – Page 24, 25 of the 9/11 Commission Report states that the transponder for AA 77 was
turned off at 8:56 AM and that the West Virginia State Police were contacted to determine if any
reports of a downed aircraft had been received. This was 7 minutes before the second plane
struck the World Trade Center at 9:07 AM)

(Note - Page 460 note 140 states that the Great Lakes Regional Operations Center was notified
of a possible aircraft accident due to the simultaneous loss of radio communication and
radar identification. )

1-B If you go to Search engines or (Images)

And enter a request for “world trade center pictures 9/11” and you will see a large
200 foot wide crater in the wall. The World Trade Center is 220 feet wide. This type
of damage should have been evident in the pictures of the Pentagon taken before the
outer wall collapsed. These are a few example pictures showing the WTC crater.


And enter a request for pentagon 9/11 and you will find many pictures that were taken in
the half hour after 9:37 AM when the Pentagon was hit and before the outer wall collapsed.
These Pentagon web sites do not show a 200-foot wide crater similar to the World
Trade Center impact site.
Jack White’s Pentagon Studies – comparables before and after the Pentagon wall collapsed.

The area above the car is believed to be the impact site. Why no large crater?

Why there is no crater in the wall similar to the crater in the WTC attack.

Since an airplane can not enter the building via a window then it is obvious
that a plane did not crash into the Pentagon.

The picture of plane debris on the Pentagon is troubling because it proves that a plan to attack the
Pentagon was in place. Since a plane did not hit the Pentagon then this “plane debris” must have
been a prop. To have a prop you must have a plan. Was the plan to create a “Pearl Harbor” type
incident by attacking the Pentagon to advance a political or military agenda? Since the fall of the
Soviet Union our military needed an enemy to justify its’ existence. This attack would serve two
purposes, create an enemy and also give us an excuse to attack Iraq to gain control over their oil.

The common link in all the pictures taken shortly after 9:37 AM is that they do not show a 200
foot wide crater in the wall of the Pentagon. The fact that there is no such crater resulting from
the supposedly AA 77 crash into the Pentagon proves that it did not happen.

The expert in the book “Pentagate” has a theory that a missile, launched from an airplane, struck the
Pentagon. An example of the missile can be found at: .
The web site includes the specifications for a Boeing AGM-86B with a circumference of 24
inches. This means that the missile could easily have entered the Pentagon via a window.

The expert further explains that the missile, after crashing through the outer wall, propels a jet
mixture of gas and melted materials at a speed of several thousand feet per second, with a
temperature of several thousands of degrees. It could easily pierce five walls of the building
without any problem. Five walls out of six because the façade was perforated by the vector itself.

The detonation of the charge occurs once it has been carried inside the objective. The fuses have
a short delay. That is why the flame of the explosion developed from within the interior of the

He said this would explain the 7-foot circular exit hole in the inner wall of the “C” ring. The
heat scorched the area above the opening before the heat energy was exhausted.

The pictures prove that American Airlines Flight 77 did not crash into the Pentagon on 9.11 at
9:37 AM. Since it did not crash into the Pentagon AA 77 probably crashed at 8:56 AM when the
simultaneous loss of transponder and radar blip occurred. This is near where Ky., West Virginia
and Ohio meet and where the State Police were sent to look for a downed plane.

1-C If AA Flight 77 did crash in this area the precise location and time can be determined by
seismologist checking that area to see if an impact occurred similar to the impact when UA Flight
93 crashed in Shanksville, Pa. Seismologist reported a 3 minute difference in impact time from when
the UA 93 transponder stopped 10:03 AM and the time the impact was felt on the ground at 10:06 AM.

Vice President Cheney told Sec. of Defense Rumsfeld at 10:39 AM -- That is correct.
And it’s my understanding they’ve already taken a couple of aircraft out”.

See pages 24, 32, 33, 43 and 460 note 140 of “The 9/11 Commission Report”
You can view an online copy of The 9/11 Commission Report at

These web sites both show a dotted line AA 77 flight path back to the Pentagon because the
transponder was turned off. This flight path to the east is an estimate.


American Airlines Flight 77 probably crashed at 8:56 AM in the area where Ohio,
West Virginia and Kentucky meet.

The crash occurred 10 minutes after AA 11 hit 1 WTC (North Tower) at 8:46 AM and 7 minutes
before UA 175 hit 2 WTC (South Tower) at 9:03 AM. This means that AA 77 crashed or was
shot down before it was confirmed that we were under attack.

If seismologist confirm that AA 77 crashed around 8:56 AM then it probably means that AA 77
was shot down by a US Air Force Pilot who believed that he was involved in a military practice
exercise and that the plane was flying under remote control. To be in place to shoot AA 77 down
at 8:56 AM the Air Force pilot must have begun following it sometime after AA 77 took off at
8:20 AM. This means the pilot began following AA 77 before the first WTC crash at 8:46 AM
and that it was part of a plan.

See Pages 32 & 33 of the 9/11 Commission Report for the timelines of the four planes that crashed.

See Page 24 of the 9/11 Commission Report for the information that AA flight 77 had crashed and
the West Virginia State police were asked to look for a downed air plane.

See Pages 43 of the 9/11 Commission Report for the statement by VP Cheney to Rumsfeld that
“and it’s my understanding thay’ve already taken a couple of aircraft out.

See Pages 460, note 140 – “due to the simultaneous loss of radio communication and radar
identification the Great Lakes Center was notified about a possible aircraft accident of AA 77.


There was a conspiracy to hide from the public the fact the Administration must have known details
about an upcoming attack when investment vultures throughout the world knew specific details

A. The internet has many documents regarding the insider trading where vulture speculators
had prior knowledge about the 9.11 attacks and profited from the disaster. The media has
ignored this information because it shows that many people knew specifically of the planned
attacks against AA & UAL airlines and that the Administration was going to allow it
to happen otherwise they would not have made the bets they did. Some examples are:

Black Tuesday:
The World's Largest Insider Trading Scam?
Don Radlauer
ICT Consultant
In the wake of the terrorist attacks which caused the destruction of the Twin Towers of
New York's World Trade Center, damaged the Pentagon, and destroyed four large
airliners with all aboard, securities-exchange investigators on three continents are
poring over trading records to determine whether one or more parties profited by their
advance knowledge of the disaster.

Investigations are focusing on the many different ways and places in which profits
could be made following the Black Tuesday outrage. A brief introduction to "
left-handed trading" will help to clarify what may have happened.
Short Selling
· Most investors buy stocks much the way they buy houses: They try to buy
cheap and sell dear. Some traders, however, try to accomplish the same thing
in reverse order – when they think a stock will decrease in value, they sell the
stock first, in the belief that they will be able to buy it back at a lower price later.
This is known as short-selling. (An easy way to benefit when a stock decreases
in value is to buy a “put” on the particular stock because the put increases in
value as the stock decreases in value.)

Investigators will be looking at transactions starting with those that can be most
easily identified as suspicious. Already enough has emerged to indicate that some trades
were almost certainly made based upon advance knowledge of the Black Tuesday attacks:

· Between September 6 and 7, the Chicago Board Options Exchange saw
purchases of 4,744 put options on United Airlines, but only 396 call options.
Although there was no news at that time to justify so much "left-handed" trading,
United Airlines stock fell 42 percent, from $30.82 per share to $17.50, when the
market reopened after the attacks. Assuming that 4,000 of the options were
bought by people with advance knowledge of the imminent attacks, these
"insiders" would have profited by almost $5 million.

· On September 10, 4,516 put options on American Airlines were bought on
the Chicago exchange, compared to only 748 calls. Again, there was no news at
that point to justify this imbalance; but American Airlines stock fell 39 percent,
from $29.70 to $18.00 per share, when the market reopened. Again, assuming
that 4,000 of these options trades represent "insiders," they would represent a gain
of about $4 million.

· No similar trading in other airlines occurred on the Chicago exchange in the days
immediately preceding Black Tuesday.

· Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co., which occupied 22 floors of the World Trade
Center, saw 2,157 of its October $45.00 put options bought in the three trading
days before Black Tuesday; this compares to an average of 27 contracts per day
before September 6. Morgan Stanley's share price fell from $48.90 to $42.50 in the a
ftermath of the attacks. Assuming that 2,000 of these options contracts

· Merrill Lynch & Co., with headquarters near the Twin Towers, saw 12,215 October
$45.00 put options bought in the four trading days before the attacks; the previous
average volume in these options had been 252 contracts per day. When trading
resumed, Merrill's shares fell from $46.88 to $41.50; assuming that 11,000 option
contracts were bought by "insiders," their profit would have been about $5.5 million.

· European regulators are examing trades in Germany's Munich Re, Switzerland's
Swiss Re, and AXA of France, all major reinsurers with exposure to the Black Tuesday
disaster. (Swiss Re estimates that its exposure will be $730 million; Munich Re expects
to pay out as much as $903 million.) It is not clear if any trades in these stocks ring
alarm bells; and some negative earnings news announced shortly before the attacks
means that a certain amount of unusual selling may have been a normal market
reaction and not anything more sinister.

· Amsterdam traders have noted that there was unusual trading activity in KLM
Royal Dutch Airlines put options before the attacks.

This is very much a developing story, and we can be sure that more -- and more accurate –
numbers will emerge soon. Investigators will be examining transactions starting with the
few days immediately before the attack, and then working backwards; and similarly, they
will be looking first at trades in the most obviously affected securities.

Drawing Conclusions

Assuming that investigators are convinced that trades were made based upon advance
knowledge of the attacks, they will obviously try to trace these trades back to determine who
initiated them. Obviously, anyone who had detailed knowledge of the attacks before they
happened was, at the very least, an accessory to their planning; and the overwhelming
probability is that the trades could have been made only by the same people who masterminded
the attacks themselves.

The difficulty, of course, will be in tracing the transactions to their real source. The trading is
sure to have been done under false names, behind shell corporations, and in general to have
been thoroughly obfuscated. If in fact the Black Tuesday attacks -- and the associated securities transactions -- were made under orders from Osama bin Laden, then we are dealing with an
expert in masking ownership of corporations and making covert deals. This doesn't mean
that unraveling the threads of these transactions will be impossible, but it probably won't be
quick or easy.

Another Example of Insider trading based on the knowledge that 9.11 was about to happen:

SEC Probe Of 9.11 Stock Dealings Reveals ... Guess Who?
by TBR News • Tuesday April 15, 2003 at 12:06 AM


Between August 26 and September 11, 2001, a group of speculators, identified by the
American Securities and Exchange Commission as Israeli citizens, sold “short” a list
of 38 stocks that could reasonably be expected to fall in value as a result of the
pending attacks. These speculators operated out of the Toronto, Canada and Frankfurt,
Germany, stock exchanges and their profits were specifically stated to be “in the millions
of dollars.”

Short selling of stocks involves the opportunity to gain large profits by passing shares
to a friendly third party, then buying them back when the price falls. Historically, if
this precedes a traumatic event, it is an indication of foreknowledge. It is widely
known that the CIA uses the Promis software to routinely monitor stock trades as a
possible warning sign of a terrorist attack or suspicious economic behavior. A week
after the Sept.11 attacks, the London Times reported that the CIA had asked regulators
for the Financial Services Authority in London to investigate the suspicious sales of
millions of shares of stock just prior to the terrorist acts. It was hoped the business
paper trail might lead to the terrorists.

Investigators from numerous government agencies are part of a clandestine but official
effort to resolve the market manipulations There has been a great deal of talk about
insider trading of American stocks by certain Israeli groups both in Canada and Germany
between August 26 and the Sept.11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Lynne Howard, a spokeswoman for the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE),
stated that information about who made the trades was available immediately. "We
would have been aware of any unusual activity right away. It would have been
triggered by any unusual volume. There is an automated system called 'blue sheeting,'
or the CBOE Market Surveillance System, that everyone in the business knows about.
It provides information on the trades - the name and even the Social Security number
on an account - and these surveillance systems are set up specifically to look into
insider trading. The system would look at the volume, and then a real person would
take over and review it, going back in time and looking at other unusual activity."

Howard continued, "The system is so smart that even if there is a news event that
triggers a market event it can go back in time, and even the parameters can be
changed depending on what is being looked at. It's a very clever system and it is
instantaneous. Even with the system, though, we have very experienced and savvy
staff in our market-regulations area who are always looking for things that might be
unusual. They're trained to put the pieces of the puzzle together. Even if it's offshore,
it might take a little longer, but all offshore accounts have to go through U.S. member
firms - members of the CBOE - and it is easily and quickly identifiable who made the
trades. The member firm who made the trades has to have identifiable information
about the client under the 'Know Your Customer' regulations (and we share all
information with the Securities and Exchange Commission.)"

Given all of this, at a minimum the CBOE and government regulators who are
conducting the secret investigations have known for some time who made the options
puts on a total of 38 stocks that might reasonably be anticipated to have a sharp drop
in value because of an attack similar to the 9/11 episode. The silence from the
investigating camps could mean several things: Either terrorists are responsible for
the puts on the listed stocks or others besides terrorists had foreknowledge of the
attack and used this knowledge to reap a nice financial harvest from the tragedy.

Adam Hamilton of Zeal LLC, a North Dakota-based private consulting company
that publishes research on markets worldwide, stated that "I heard that $22 million
in profits was made on these put options..."

Federal investigators are continuing to be so closed-mouthed about these stock trades,
and it is clear that a much wider net has been cast, apparently looking for bigger
international fish involved in dubious financial activity relating to the 9/11 attacks
on the world stock markets.

Just a month after the attacks the SEC sent out a list of stocks to various securities
firms around the world looking for information. The list includes stocks of American,
United, Continental, Northwest, Southwest and US Airways airlines, as well as Martin,
Boeing, Lockheed Martin Corp., AIG, American Express Corp, American International
Group, AMR Corporation, Axa SA, Bank of America Corp, Bank of New York
Corp, Bank One Corp, Cigna Group, CNA Financial, Carnival Corp, Chubb Group,
John Hancock Financial Services, Hercules Inc, L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc.,
LTV Corporation, Marsh & McLennan Cos. Inc., MetLife, Progressive Corp.,
General Motors, Raytheon, W.R. Grace, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd., Lone Star
Technologies, American Express, the Citigroup Inc. ,Royal & Sun Alliance,
Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc., Vornado Reality Trust, Morgan Stanley, Dean
Witter & Co., XL Capital Ltd., and Bear Stearns.

The Times said market regulators in Germany, Japan and the US all had
received information concerning the short selling of insurance, airlines and
arms companies stock, all of which fell sharply in the wake of the attacks.

City of London broker and analyst Richard Crossley noted that someone sold
shares in unusually large quantities beginning three weeks before the assault
on the WTC and Pentagon.

He said he took this as evidence that someone had insider foreknowledge
of the attacks.

"What is more awful than he should aim a stiletto blow at the heart of Western
financial markets?" he added. "But to profit from it? Words fail me."

The US Government also admitted it was investigating short selling, which
evinced a compellingly strong foreknowledge of the coming Arab attack.

There was unusually heavy trading in airline and insurance stocks several
days before Sept.11, which essentially bet on a drop in the worth of the stocks.

It was reported by the Interdisciplinary Center, a counter-terrorism think
tank involving former Israeli intelligence officers, that insiders made nearly
$16 million profit by short selling shares in American and United Airlines,
the two airlines that suffered hijacking, and the investment firm of Morgan
Stanley, which occupied 22 floors of the WTC.


Investigators from numerous government agencies are part of a clandestine but
official effort to resolve the market manipulations There has been a great deal
talk about the insider trading of American stocks by certain Israeli groups both in
Canada and Germany between August 26 and the Sept.11 attacks on the World
Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Government investigators have maintained a diplomatic silence about a Department
of Justice (DOJ) probe of possible profiteering by interested parties with advance
knowledge of the attack.

On Sept. 6, 2001, the Thursday before the tragedy, 2,075 put options were made
on United Airlines and on Sept. 10, the day before the attacks, 2,282 put options
were recorded for American Airlines. Given the prices at the time, this could
have yielded speculators between $2 million and $4 million in profit.

The matter still is under investigation and none of the government investigating
bodies -including the FBI, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and
DOJ -are speaking to reporters about insider trading. Even so, suspicion of insider
trading to profit from the Sept. 11 attacks is not limited to U.S. regulators.
Investigations were initiated in a number of places including Japan, Germany, the
United Kingdom, France, Luxembourg, Hong Kong, Switzerland and Spain. As in
the United States, all are treating these inquiries as if they were state secrets.

B Florida Executive order 2001-261 indicates that there was prior knowledge
about an attack on 9/11. A copy is enclosed.

Section 3. of the order is listed below.

The Florida National Guard may order selected members on to state active
duty for service to the State of Florida pursuant to Section 250.06(4), Florida
Statutes, to assist FDLE in performing port security training and inspections.
Based on the potential massive damage to life and property that may result
from an act of terrorism at a Florida port, the necessity to protect life and
property from such acts of terrorism, and inhibiting the smuggling of illegal
drugs into the State of Florida, the use of the Florida National Guard to
support FDLE in accomplishing port security training and inspections is
"extraordinary support to law enforcement" as used in Section 250.06(4),
Florida Statutes.

The obvious questions:
Why did Gov. Jeb Bush sign Executive order 2001-261 four days before the 9/11 attack?
What did Gov. Jeb Bush learn that caused him to sign this order?
When did he learn this information?
How did he obtain this informantion?

Another item showing prior knowledge:

USA Today , New York Times and CNN
Conversations intercepted the day before Sept. 11 caught al-Qaeda operatives
boasting in Arabic, "The match begins tomorrow" and "Tomorrow is Zero Hour."

In each of the transcripts is the disclaimer that the information was not translated
until the day after the attack.

D Travel plans cancelled
Mayor Willie Brown, San Francisco Chronincle on 9-10-2001

According to Newsweek, a group of top Pentagon officials suddenly cancelled travel
plans for the next morning, apparently because of security concerns.

Includes 2 warnings a Jordanian intercept and info from secret agent who
had infiltrated alqaeda

John K. Cooley
The road to Sept. 11
ATHENS When the hubbub about what the White House did or didn't know
before Sept. 11 dies down, Congressional or other investigators should consider
the specific warnings that friendly Arab intelligence services sent to Washington
in the summer of 2001.


.As for the Moroccan case, last November a French magazine and a Moroccan
newspaper simultaneously reported a story that has since met a wall of silence.

.The reports said that a Moroccan secret agent named Hassan Dabou succeeded
in infiltrating Al Qaeda. Several weeks before Sept. 11, the story ran, he
informed his chiefs in King Mohammed VI's royal intelligence service that
Osama bin Laden's men were preparing "large-scale operations in New York
in the summer or autumn of 2001." The warning was said to have been passed
on to Washington. .Dabou was said to have told his bosses in Rabat that bin Laden
was "very disappointed" by the failure of the first bombing of the World Trade Center
in February 1993 to topple the towers.

.Though Dabou won bin Laden's confidence at first, according to an unnamed
French intelligence agent cited in the reports, after he was invited to the United
States to tell his story he lost contact with Al Qaeda, curtailing his ability to help
prevent Sept. 11. Nonetheless, the story goes, he was given asylum and a new identity
in the United States and is said to be helping out in the "war on terror."


Britain Gave Bush a Categorical Warning to Expect Multiple
Airline Hijackings a month before 9.11

Britain warned US to expect September 11 al-Qaeda hijackings
By Torcuil Crichton, Westminster Editor

Britain gave President Bush a categorical warning to expect
multiple airline hijackings by the al-Qaeda network a month
before the September 11 attacks which killed nearly 3000 people
and triggered the international war against terrorism.



800 Page Report will not be released

The Secrets of September 11

The White House is battling to keep a report on the terror attacks secret.

Newsweek Web Exclusive

April 30 - Even as White House political aides plot a 2004 campaign plan designed
to capitalize on the emotions and issues raised by the September 11 terror attacks,
administration officials are waging a behind-the-scenes battle to restrict public
disclosure of key events relating to the attacks.

AT THE CENTER of the dispute is a more-than-800-page secret report
prepared by a joint congressional inquiry detailing the intelligence and law-enforce
ment failures that preceded the attacks—including provocative, if unheeded
warnings, given President Bush and his top advisers during the summer of 2001.

Graham is “increasingly frustrated” by the administration’s “unwillingness to release
what he regards as important information the public should have about 9-11,” a
spokesman said. In Graham’s view, the Bush administration isn’t protecting legitimate
issues of national security but information that could be a political “embarrassment,”
the aide said. Graham, who last year served as Senate Intelligence Committee chairman,
recently told NEWSWEEK: “There has been a cover-up of this.”

E-5 The 9/11 Secret in the CIA's Back Pocket
By Robert Scheer
The Los Angeles Times
Tuesday 19 October 2004
The agency is withholding a damning report that points at senior officials.
It is shocking: The Bush administration is suppressing a CIA report on 9/11 until
after the election, and this one names names. Although the report by the inspector
general's office of the CIA was completed in June, it has not been made available
to the congressional intelligence committees that mandated the study almost two years ago.

"What all the other reports on 9/11 did not do is point the finger at individuals,
and give the how and what of their responsibility. This report does that," said
the intelligence official. "The report found very senior-level officials responsible."

Count 4

There was a conspiracy to hide from the general public the fact that the military was engaged
in exercises on the East coast involving many airplanes and that one of those missions may have
included the shooting down of AA 77 in the area where the transponder and radar blip were lost.

Go to Search engines or

And enter a request for “war games” 9/11 and you will find many documents
regarding the war games that were in progress that day. Including a war game that
specifically called for a plane to crash into a building.

This site includes a lot of information about the war games Over 30 pages of information.

On September 11, 2001, the Air Force was in its second day of annual war game
drills, titled VIGILANT GUARDIAN, designed to test national air response systems,
…..everyone at the North East Air Defense Sector (NEADS), part of NORAD, initially
thought the first call she received about the real 9/11 hijackings was part of the wargames
scenario (Newhouse News, 1/25/02).

War games Were Cover For the Operational Execution of 9/11

UPDATE: Alex Jones Discusses 9/11 Wargames in April 2004 Video

For almost three years since 9/11 independent researchers have stockpiled individual
smoking guns which prove that the official version of events was not only a lie
but operationally impossible.

However, no single smoking gun has yet been forwarded to explain why air
defenses categorically reversed Standard Operating Procedure and failed to respond
to hijacked jetliners.

Until now. More and more individuals are looking at the facts and highlighting
exercise drills that took place on the morning of 9/11.

It is clear that at least five if not six training exercises were in operation in the days
leading up to and on the morning of 9/11. This meant that NORAD radar screens
showed as many as 22 hijacked airliners at the same time. NORAD had been briefed
that this was part of the exercise drill and therefore normal reactive procedure was
forestalled and delayed.

The large numbers of 'blips' on NORAD screens that displayed both real and 'drill'
hijacked planes explain why confused press reports emerged hours after the attack
stating that up to eight planes had been hijacked.


The controller is told that a hijacked airliner is heading for New York and
responds by saying, "is this real world or an exercise?"

…… What were the drills called and what was their nature?

1) OPERATION NORTHERN VIGILANCE: This was planned months in
advance of 9/11 and ensured that on the morning of 9/11, jet fighters were
removed from patrolling the US east coast and sent to Alaska and Canada,
therefore reducing the amount of fighter planes available to protect the east coast.

2) BIOWARFARE EXERCISE TRIPOD II: Alex Jones first reported on
this back in May when Rudolph Giuliani let the details of it slip in his testimony
to the 9/11 Commission. FEMA arrived in New York on September 10th to set
up a command post located at Pier 29 under the auspices of a 'biowarfare exercise
scheduled for September 12. This explains why Tom Kenney of FEMA's National
Urban Search and Rescue Team, told Dan Rather of CBS News that FEMA had
arrived in New York on the night of September 10th. This was originally
dismissed as a slip of the tongue. Giuliani was to use this post as a command
post on 9/11 after he evacuated WTC Building 7. As we reported back in January,
Giuliani knew when to leave WTC 7 because he got advanced warning that the
Trade Towers were about to collapse. "We were operating out of there when we
were told that the World Trade Center was gonna collapse," Rudolph Giuliani
told Peter Jennings of ABC News. How did Giuliani know the towers were about
to collapse when no steel building in history had previously collapsed from fire damage?

3) OPERATION VIGILANT GUARDIAN: This exercise simulated hijacked
planes in the north eastern sector and started to coincide with 9/11. Lt. Col. Dawne
Deskins, NORAD unit's airborne control and warning officer, was overseeing the
exercise. At 8:40am she took a call from Boston Center which said it had a
hijacked airliner. Her first words, as quoted by Newhouse News Service were,
"It must be part of the exercise." This is another example of how the numerous drills
on the morning of 9/11 deliberately distracted NORAD so that the real hijacked
planes couldn't be intercepted in time.

4) OPERATION NORTHERN GUARDIAN: The details of this exercise are still
scant but it is considered to be part of Vigilant Guardian, relating to simulating
hijacked planes in the north eastern sector.

5) OPERATION VIGILANT WARRIOR: This was referenced in Richard
Clarke's book 'Against All Enemies'. It is thought to have been the 'attack'
component of the Vigilant Guardian exercise. Another example of how
air defenses were purposefully kept preoccupied so they couldn't protect
New York was reported by this website in December of 2003. The Air
National Guard's 177th Fighter Wing, based at Atlantic City International
Airport in Pomona, were just eight minutes away from New York and could
have intercepted both Flight 11 and Flight 175.

Under NORAD procedures that date to the Cold War, two F-16 fighters from the
177th were parked around the clock on the Atlantic City runway. Pilots waited in a
nearby building, ready to scramble.

But on the morning of 9/11, the F-16's were performing bombing runs over an empty
stretch of the Pine Barrens near Atlantic City after being decommissioned from their
usual role of protecting the skies of the east coast.


American Airlines Flight 77 did not crash into the Pentagon at 9:37 AM on 9/11/2001.
This is confirmed by a seismic study and pentagon pictures that show fire coming out
of windows – no large crater like at the World Trade Center. The damage to the Pentagon
suggests that some type of missile killed the 125 people who died in that tragedy.

American Airlines Flight 77 probably crashed in the area where KY, Ohio and West
Virginia meet killing the 64 people on board. Confirmation of the location should be
possible via a seismic or strong motion study of this area for the time period around
8:56 AM when all communication with the plane was lost.

Communication with AA Flight 77 was lost seven minutes before it was confirmed that we
were under attack when the second plane hit the World Trade Center at 9:03 AM. This
occurred ten minutes after 8:46 AM when the first plane hit the WTC.

On September 11, 2001 about five different war games were underway with over 20
airplanes being hijacked actually or as part of the war games. One game included a plane
crashing into a building.

If AA Flight 77 was shot down by our military then it must have been done by a pilot who
was told that it was part of a military exercise and that no one would be injured. To be in
position to shoot down AA 77 the pilot must have been following it shortly after it left
Dulles airport. This following of AA 77 must have begun before the first plane hit the
WTC at 8:46 AM indicating that it was part of a war game plan. The first airplane crash
into the WTC could have been the trigger for the events that followed.

A piece of plane debris was found on the Pentagon lawn. Since no plane hit the Pentagon
this debris must also have been part of a war game plan that was used to deceive the public that
AA 77 had crashed into the building. To have this prop there it probably originally was a
prop in a war game plan.

“Vulture” investors throughout the world made investments days before 9.11 that increased
in value when AA & UA airlines stocks declined based on the belief that those airlines’
planes would be involved in an attack on the US. If they knew then our government
must have also known and allowed it to happen.

This is confirmed by the many documents showing that many governments told
our government about an impending attack and the Administration did nothing and
allowed the attack to continue. This knowledge was obtained by our allies via a
spy who had infiltrated al quaeda & also by monitoring their conversations.

This means that our intelligence was excellent and did not have to be overhauled.
We also did not have to create a Dept of Homeland Security. The new airline procedures
did not have to happen and the bankruptcy of many airlines did not have to happen.

The raiding of the Social Security Trust Fund and the projected 200 Billion Cost of the
Iraq war also did not have to happen. This probably will become the most expensive act
of neglect, do nothing & allow the attack to occur, that any administration has been
responsible for.

The 3,000 people who died at the World Trade Center and all the sons and
daughters who have died fighting in Afganistan and Iraq wars didn’t have to
happen. The thousands of Iraqi deaths were unnecessary also.

Those deaths are the result of an evil policy - to allow events that could have been
stopped - to continue - just to create a Pearl Harbor type atmosphere so people would
not question anything the Administration did.

What did happen was that our Army now has an enemy and can justify its existence.
We also created a reason to attack Afghanistan because they had not been co-operating in
the negotiations to build an oil pipeline through their country and to attack Iraq because
the Administration coveted their oil.

The oil industry continues to benefit from this tragedy. We consume over 10 million
barrels of oil each day with about half coming from domestic sources. Assuming a
profit of $1 dollar per barrel when the price was $20 per barrel equals a profit of $5
million dollars per day. At $50 per barrel that profit $30 X 5 million barrels equals an
additional $150 million daily. This is because the cost to process the domestic oil
doesn’t increase just because the selling price increases.

This could be the reason that the “war” on terror will continue for a long time because
uncertainty and war = profits for the oil industry to the detriment of every other consumer
of energy.
