Actor Charlie Sheen Questions Official 9/11 Story
Calls for truly independent investigation, joins growing ranks of prominent credible whistleblowers

Alex Jones & Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | March 20 2006

Actor Charlie Sheen has joined a growing army of other highly credible public figures in questioning the official story of 9/11 and calling for a new independent investigation of the attack and the circumstances surrounding it.

Over the past two years, scores of highly regarded individuals have gone public to express their serious doubts about 9/11. These include former presidential advisor and CIA analyst Ray McGovern, the father of Reaganomics and former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury Paul Craig Roberts, BYU physics Professor Steven Jones, former German defense minister Andreas von Buelow, former MI5 officer David Shayler, former Blair cabinet member Michael Meacher, former Chief Economist for the Department of Labor during President George W. Bush's first term Morgan Reynolds and many more.

Speaking to The Alex Jones Show on the GCN Radio Network, the star of current hit comedy show Two and a Half Men and dozens of movies including Platoon and Young Guns, Sheen elaborated on why he had problems believing the government's version of events.

Sheen agreed that the biggest conspiracy theory was put out by the government itself and prefaced his argument by quoting Theodore Roosevelt in stating, "That we are to stand by the President right or wrong is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."

"We're not the conspiracy theorists on this particular issue," said Sheen.

"It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75% of their targets, that feels like a conspiracy theory. It raises a lot of questions."

Sheen described the climate of acceptance for serious discussion about 9/11 as being far more fertile than it was a couple of years ago.

"It feels like from the people I talk to in and around my circles, it seems like the worm is turning."

Suspicious collapse of buildings

Sheen described his immediate skepticism regarding the official reason for the collapse of the twin towers and building 7 on the day of 9/11.

"I was up early and we were gonna do a pre-shoot on Spin City, the show I used to do, I was watching the news and the north tower was burning. I saw the south tower hit live, that famous wide shot where it disappears behind the building and then we see the tremendous fireball."

"There was a feeling, it just didn't look any commercial jetliner I've flown on any time in my life and then when the buildings came down later on that day I said to my brother 'call me insane, but did it sorta look like those buildings came down in a controlled demolition'?"

Sheen said that most people's gut instinct, that the buildings had been deliberately imploded, was washed away by the incessant flood of the official version of events from day one.

Sheen questioned the plausibility of a fireballs traveling 1100 feet down an elevator shaft and causing damage to the lobbies of the towers as seen in video footage, especially when contrasted with eyewitness accounts of bombs and explosions in the basement levels of the buildings.

Regarding building 7, which wasn't hit by a plane, Sheen highlighted the use of the term "pull," a demolition industry term for pulling the outer walls of the building towards the center in an implosion, as was used by Larry Silverstein in a September 2002 PBS documentary when he said that the decision to "pull" building 7 was made before its collapse. This technique ensures the building collapses in its own footprint and can clearly be seen during the collapse of building 7 with the classic 'crimp' being visible.

The highly suspicious collapse of building 7 and the twin towers has previously been put under the spotlight by physics Professor Steven Jones and Kevin Ryan of Underwriters Laboratories, the company that certified the steel components used in the construction of the World Trade Center towers.

"The term 'pull' is as common to the demolition world as 'action and 'cut' are to the movie world," said Sheen.

Sheen referenced firefighters in the buildings who were eyewitnesses to demolition style implosions and bombs.

"This is not you or I watching the videos and speculating on what we saw, these are gentlemen inside the buildings at the very point of collapse."

"If there's a problem with building 7 then there's a problem with the whole thing," said Sheen.

Bush's behavior on 9/11

Sheen then questioned President Bush's actions on 9/11 and his location at the Booker Elementary School in Florida. Once Andy Card had whispered to Bush that America was under attack why didn't the secret service immediately whisk Bush away to a secret location?

By remaining at a location where it was publicly known the President would be before 9/11, he was not only putting his own life in danger, but the lives of hundreds of schoolchildren. That is unless the government knew for sure what the targets were beforehand and that President Bush wasn't one of them.

"It seems to me that upon the revelation of that news that the secret service would grab the President as if he was on fire and remove him from that room," said Sheen.

The question of how Bush saw the first plane hit the north tower, when no live footage of that incident was carried, an assertion that Bush repeated twice, was also put under the spotlight.

"I guess one of the perks of being President is that you get access to TV channels that don't exist in the known universe," said Sheen.

"It might lead you to believe that he'd seen similar images in some type of rehearsal as it were, I don't know."

The Pentagon incident

Sheen outlined his disbelief that the official story of what happened at the Pentagon matched the physical evidence.

"Show us this incredible maneuvering, just show it to us. Just show us how this particular plane pulled off these maneuvers. 270 degree turn at 500 miles and hour descending 7,000 feet in two and a half minutes, skimming across treetops the last 500 meters."

We have not been able to confirm that a large commercial airliner hit the Pentagon because the government has seized and refused to release any footage that would show the impact.

"I understand in the interest of national security that maybe not release the Pentagon cameras but what about the Sheraton, what about the gas station, what about the Department of Transportation freeway cam? What about all these shots that had this thing perfectly documented? Instead they put out five frames that they claim not to have authorized, it's really suspicious," said Sheen.

Sheen also questioned how the plane basically disappeared into the Pentagon with next to no wreckage and no indication of what happened to the wing sections.

Concerning how the Bush administration had finalized Afghanistan war plans two days before 9/11 with the massing of 44,000 US troops and 18,000 British troops in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, and in addition the call for "some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor," as outlined in the PNAC documents, Sheen stated, "you don't really put those strategies together overnight do you for a major invasion? Those are really well calculated and really well planned."

"Coincidence? We think not," said Sheen and he called the PNAC quotes "emblematic of the arrogance of this administration."

A real investigation

Sheen joined others in calling for a revised and truly independent investigation of 9/11.

Sheen said that "September 11 wasn't the Zapruder film, it was the Zapruder film festival," and that the inquiry had to be, "headed, if this is possible, by some neutral investigative committee. What if we used retired political foreign nationals? What if we used experts that don't have any ties whatsoever to this administration?"

"It is up to us to reveal the truth. It is up to us because we owe it to the families, we owe it to the victims. We owe it to everybody's life who was drastically altered, horrifically that day and forever. We owe it to them to uncover what happened."

Charlie Sheen joins the rest of his great family and notably his father Martin Sheen, who has lambasted for opposing the Iraq war before it had begun yet has now been proven right in triplicate, in using his prominent public platform to stand for truth and justice and we applaud and salute his brave efforts, remembering Mark Twain's quote.

"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, brave, hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."

I listened to the interview--he's not the BEST speaker on the issues but the simple fact that he's got the guts (or brains) to come out on the correct side is fantastic. these bums are tooooast....

Not only is this Administration is horrific, but the whole U.S. Government is filled with lies, deceit and conspiracies. As Americans we have been taught to sit back and let the elected officials get away with what they want. In going into the Presidency, George Sadaam Hussein Walker Bush, knew what the game play was, Revenge. Revenge on Sadaam, war to gain control of the oil, and corruption, coverup to confuse the American people. George Bush is the Biggest Terrorist there is, and fighting this war is no more than a ploy for his greed. There is no way that he or any president will be able to put a stop to terorism, because terrorist are the Government Administration.
The only reasonable explanation for 9/11 is that Bush did it.
22 Mar 2006
Who benefitted most?

Why would hijackers target the White House when they knew Bush was not there, unless, of course, they were sent by the regime?

Why did the US Air Force Stand Down?

Why was a training exercize for a similar event planned at the same time the real event took place?

Why did Bush do all he could to AVOID investigating the attacks of 9/11?

Why is Bush doing all he can to silence dissent? Well, it's obvious, isn't it? He's got something to hide. Something VERY big to hide.

Bush did 9/11. That is the truth. That is what we must make every American come to know.

I can't believe someone that has a "voice" has finally come out and questioned this whole thing. The minute I watched the documentary 911: In Plane Site, I was 110% sure that the governments reasoning for 911 were a conspiracy. I commend Charlie Sheen for speaking up, it needed to be done, and hopefully something comes out of it.

CNN Headline News had a short clip on Sheen's comments. Of course the MSM news made Charlie Sheen look like a "conspiricy nut". Doesn't matter. Anyone with high speed internet. And links to Information Clearing House or Net Center? Will get the truth on September 11th. The best video on 9-11 is LOOSE CHANGE. If you haven't watched it? Now is the time.
Our government is pure evil.

"Charlie Sheen look like a "conspiricy nut". "

His next TV show will be "Two and a Half Arabs" a story about Marwan and Musatafa, and their attempts to get little Yasser to wear a bomb belt. A hilarious comedy about love, life and being a shihid.

I can't believe this article. I also can't believe all these people who are quick in saying our own government would do such a thing. Just to refresh your memory, we live is the best country in this entire world. I think some people need to be dropped off in a third world country and see how life can actually be over there. They live in fear every day of their lives. They are stricken with poverty and illness. I, for one, and DAMN proud to be an American. Our President has made some mistakes, but who hasn't. I would like to see all of the people who bash him try to be president. Think about the families who lost loved ones on 9-11. Bush would never do something like this or even be capable of doing something like this. The President is always being watched. There is no way that he could have set up the whole plan without someone finding out. He could not have had the whole Supreme Court and Congress and every other government branch in on this. Yes, every goverment is filled with some type of deceit, but our government is not this extreme. Before you go bashing and coming up with crazy remarks like "Bush planned 9-11" take a step back, and realize what you have in this country. A president should be remembered by the 100 good things he has done, not the 1 bad thing. Again, I repeat, I am PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN, and I am proud of President Bush. If we had a differnt government system, you wouldn't be able to bash the government without being killed. Think about your priveledges in this great country. I support out troups and I support our country. Well, at least one thing is for sure, Charlie Sheen probably won't have a TV show after this!!

CHARLIE SHEEN IS RIGHT, 911 IS AND ALWAYS WAS AN INSIDE JOB. INDUSTRIAL MILITARY COMPLEX HAS TAKEN FULL CONTROL OF AMERICAN GOV TODAY. BUSH WILL NOT FINISH THIS TERM AS PRESIDENT. HE WILL BE BROKEN AND DESTROYED BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. YOU CAN FIND TRUTH OF PLANES FLOWN REMOTE, TOWERS BLOWN UP FROM BASEMENT, FOLLOW THE MONEY. MOST AMERICANS HAVE NO OPEN ORFICES LEFT TO TAKE IN THE TRUTH, THEY HAVE THEIR HEADS SHOVED UP THEIR ASS. BUSH IS HISTORY I PROMISE.
Hey, "are you kidding me," are you kidding me?
24 Mar 2006
You win the Bush-bot award for 2006:

"I can't believe this article." - Yeah, but you can believe that they found the passports of the the hijackers just hours after the jets crashed into the WTC? And get this, you can believe that the terrorists left a Koran in the trunk of the rental car along with diaries. Oh, LMFAO, you believe Bush when he said "no one had any idea terrorists would fly jets into buildings..." Tell me another one.
"I also can't believe all these people who are quick in saying our own government would do such a thing." - Let's see, our government knew about the impending attack on Pearl Harbor and did nothing to stop it. Our government worked out plans for fake terrorist attacks on Americans jets to be blamed on Cuba in the 1960s. Our government faked the Tonkin Gulf incident. Our government faked the sinking of the Maine in Havana Harbor. Of course, I just could NOT image "our" government doing such a thing. Bannish the thought!

"Just to refresh your memory, we live is the best country in this entire world." - You get an "A" in second grade civics lessons. Maybe they'll give you a hall pass so you can use the bathroom at will. Just to refresh your empty memory, the United States does not have the world's highest standard of living, the U.S. has more citizens in jail than any other industrial nation, the U.S. has no national healthcare, Americans have fewer freedoms than Canadians, Scandanavians and many others. You're beliefs about the U.S. are pure bull-shit.

"I think some people need to be dropped off in a third world country and see how life can actually be over there." - I live in Central America and felt more free there than here.

"They live in fear every day of their lives." - Um, no. They live in fear of American helicopters and jet planes raining death upon them.

"They are stricken with poverty and illness. I, for one, and DAMN proud to be an American." - Sounds like the U.S., "sticken with poverty and illness."

Get a life, loser. And while you're at it, get an education!

not even the PR firms are going near this one! normally they are hired to post things here defending the prez and his gang, but in this case it seems that only the die-hard amateur Muslim-haters are rallying to his side! unless dumbya is resorting to posting these himself!

Where, I ask, has "Veteran" disappeared to?? What could be more important than saving his dear leader????
"Veteran" is a cop and he knows that I know who he is.
24 Mar 2006
I think he couldn't take the heat. Isn't that right, Veteran? How are things at the intersection of Washington and High Streets?
World Trade Center Building 7
24 Mar 2006
Please take the time to listen to the questions Charlie poses. You will see that they are very legitimate and remain unanswered. Namely the collapse of WORLD TRADE CENTER BUILDING 7. The FEMA report had this to say about the collapse of WTC 7.<br><br> "The specifics of the fires in WTC 7 and how they caused the building to collapse remain unknown at this time. Although the total diesel fuel on the premises contained massive potential energy, the best hypothesis has only a low probability of occurrence. Further research, investigation, and analyses are needed to resolve this issue." (FEMA, 2002, chapter 5) <br><br> <a href="http://wtc7.net/ ">http://www.wtc7.net/</a> <br><br> <a href="http://www.physics.byu.edu/research/energy/ htm7.html">http://www.physics.byu.edu/research/energy/htm7.html</a> <br><br> The owner of WTC 7 admitted in a PBS documentary to "pulling" the building. "Pull it" is a demolition term for bringing down a building. <br><br> "I remember getting a call from the, er, fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, "We've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it." Larry Silverstein - owner of WTC 7 <br><br> Putting explosives in a building takes weeks and could not have been placed between the time of the first two tower collapses and the collapse of WTC 7. <br><br> WTC7 shares all the characteristics of a controlled demolition and has yet to be explained by the government. Heres a video of the collapse. <br><br> <a href="http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/IMAGES/wtc-7_cbs_demolition.mpg">Video Of WTC 7 collapse</a><br><br> Millions of people all over the world question the official US government story of 9/11 for very good reasons, and namely the collapse of WTC Building 7. Don't be so quick to proclaim Charlie Sheen is stupid and wrong if you have not done any research regarding the subject. Look at what he is asking instead of just attacking Charlie Sheen's character over the internet.<br><br> If Charlie Sheen is so wrong just present evidence that proves him wrong. It shouldn't be hard right?

Look at the evidence and decide for your self.
http://fpiarticle.blogspot.com/2005/12/911-video-loose-change.html
I want to know why the worlds most outstanding symbol of power, the pentagon, has 4 frames of low res camera footage of the whole fucking side of a building considered the most secure in the world. That puzzles no one? None of the after shots add up. Where is the plane. The lawn in front of the crash site was unburned. and exposed offices were un touched by fire. Where is the plane?
Give me something more convincing than what we have been fed. In this day of cameras where is the evidence to the contary.
There too many questionable images and sound bites. Get a copy of In Plane Sight and keep an open mind and watch it.

In highschool in 1964 I played O'brien in our senior rendition of Orwell's, 1984. We thought his vision extraordinary and not remotely possible. We thought the real future and 1984 would probably never get here. Bobby and John and Martin were dead.
If you don't think your government will sacrifice Innocents and Personel to keep there agendas, just gaze far to the east.

Let me ask you again Mr. Bush
what was the real reason you invaded Iraq?


And the question of how Bush saw the first plane hit the north tower, when no live footage of that incident was carried, an assertion that Bush repeated twice, was also put under the spotlight.
