Preliminary Website - Subject to Change
Based on their prior statements questioning the official account
of 9/11 and/or supporting a new investigation, the following officers have been invited to sign the petition. Only those
officers listed as having signed the petition have done so.
As Commissioned and Non-commissioned Officers in the U.S. military, we took an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same."

Regardless of our current status -- active duty, reserves, retired, or civilian -- that oath remains in force. Therefore it is not just our responsibility as citizens, it is our duty as officers to expose the real perpetrators of 9/11 and bring them to justice, no matter how hard it is, how long it takes, how much we have to suffer, or where it leads us.

We believe the official account of 9/11 as defined in the 9/11 Commission Report is grossly inaccurate and fatally flawed.

It is imperative that we have an accurate understanding of 9/11 so that those responsible can be identified and brought to justice in order that they and similarly-minded people never again commit such heinous crimes.

It is also imperative that we have an accurate understanding of 9/11 so that governmental policies and military actions resulting from 9/11 are based on truth rather than deception.

We join with others, such as Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth,Pilots for 9/11 Truth, Firefighters for 9/11 Truth, Veterans for 9/11 Truth,Medical Professionals for 9/11 Truth, and Lawyers for 9/11 Truth, and millions of individual citizens in demanding a thorough, impartial, open and transparent reinvestigation of the terrorist acts of 9/11.
PETITION:
We, the undersigned current and former Commissioned and Non-commissioned U.S. Military Officers, believe that whereas:
  • There is incontrovertible publicly available evidence since 9/11/01 that the official account of the events of that day is incomplete and fraught with errors;
  • The 9/11 Commission Report inadequately answered, and in numerous cases even failed to address, many of the most important questions that were called to its attention;
  • The blatant disregard of extensive compelling evidence that clearly refutes the official account raises rational suspicion of intentional deception by agents of the U.S. Government;
  • U.S. Government policies and military actions have been, and continue to be, founded upon assumptions about the events of 9/11 that are likely to be erroneous;
  • As a result of U.S. military action based on the official account of 9/11, thousands of U.S. servicemen and women and hundreds of thousands of civilians have lost their lives; and
  • The perpetrators of the heinous crimes against humanity that were committed on 9/11 have still not been brought to justice.
Therefore, we petition the Congress of the United States for a new and independent investigation into the events of 9/11/01 by a duly constituted legal body with the authority to subpoena and require testimony under oath, and with authority to prosecute if criminal activity is discovered, so that the perpetrators of these crimes against humanity can at last be brought to justice.
Signed by the following currently serving and former U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard Commissioned and Non-Commissioned Officers:

  • Founding Signer Commissioned and Non-commissioned U.S. Military Officers petition calling for a new investigation of 9/11

    Personal statement of support:

    "In my first position paper, titled The Precautionary Principle, [see below] written shortly after the attacks on NYC and the Pentagon, I cautioned readers against a rush to judgment, although the immediate evidence suggested the crime had been an inside job. As the years went by, a virtual mountain of physical evidence was collected by hundreds of highly qualified investigators -- evidence sufficient to convince any dedicated Grand Jury that the horrendous events of 9/11 were clearly an inside job. The Precautionary Principle no longer applies. It is time to positively conclude that a well-orchestrated and obviously pre-planned cover-up of the worst mass murder in our country's history began immediately following the deaths of 3,000 innocent people on September 11, 2001. Nearly nine years later the criminal cover-up continues. Fortunately for our country, our judicial system provides no statute of limitations for treason, first degree murder, and terrorism."
  • Essay Aircraft Parts and the Precautionary Principle:

    "In all my years of direct and indirect participation, I never witnessed nor even heard of an aircraft loss, where the wreckage was accessible, that prevented investigators from finding enough hard evidence to positively identify the make, model, and specific registration number of the aircraft -- and in most cases the precise cause of the accident. ...

    The government alleges that four wide-body airliners crashed on the morning of September 11 2001, resulting in the deaths of more than 3,000 human beings, yet not one piece of hard aircraft evidence has been produced in an attempt to positively identify any of the four aircraft. On the contrary, it seems only that all potential evidence was deliberately kept hidden from public view. …

    With all the evidence readily available at the Pentagon crash site, any unbiased rational investigator could only conclude that a Boeing 757 did not fly into the Pentagon as alleged. Similarly, with all the evidence available at the Pennsylvania crash site, it was most doubtful that a passenger airliner caused the obvious hole in the ground and certainly not the Boeing 757 as alleged. …

    As painful and heartbreaking as was the loss of innocent lives and the lingering health problems of thousands more, a most troublesome and nightmarish probability remains that so many Americans appear to be involved in the most heinous conspiracy in our country's history." http://www.physics911.net

We are committed to seeking the truth surrounding the events of the 11th of September 2001. Our main focus concentrates on the four flights, maneuvers performed and the reported pilots. We do not offer theory or point blame. However, we are focused on determining the truth of that fateful day since the United States Government doesn't seem to be very forthcoming with answers."

  • Statement to the PatriotsQuestion911.com website 9/19/06:

    "I knew from September 18, 2001, that the official story about 9/11 was false. ... [A]nomalies poured in rapidly: the hijackers' names appearing in none of the published flight passenger lists, BBC reports of stolen identities of the alleged hijackers or the alleged hijackers being found alive, the obvious demolitions of WTC 1 and 2 [each 1300+ feet tall, 110 stories], and WTC 7, the lack of identifiable Boeing 757 wreckage at the Pentagon ... http://PatriotsQuestion911.com [Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories. It would have been the tallest building in 33 states. Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers. However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks." Watch the collapse videohere. And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.]

  • Video interview 6/28/09:

    General Stubblebine: I am Major General Albert Stubblebine. I am retired Army Major-General. In my last assignment -- my last command -- I was responsible for all of the Army's strategic intelligence forces around the world. I had responsibility for the Signals Intelligence, Photo Intelligence, Counter Intelligence, Human Intelligence. They all belonged to me, in my last assignment. …

    I was supposed to find out what the enemy was doing, before the enemy did it so that we could take action against the enemy. That's Intelligence, OK, before the fact. So, we always -- always -- rely not on a single piece of data, before we make a statement, but on multiple and the more pieces of data that you have that correlate, the better you know exactly what is going on. …

    So I have had a lot of experience looking at photographs. I have looked at many, many different kinds of photographs, from many, many different platforms on many, many different countries, around the world.

    Interviewer: OK. So on September the 11th, in 2001, what hit the Pentagon?

    General Stubblebine: I don't know exactly what hit it, but I do know, from the photographs that I have analyzed and looked at very, very carefully, it was not an airplane.

    Interviewer: What made you believe that?

    General Stubblebine: Well, for one thing, if you look at the hole that was made in the Pentagon, the nose penetrated far enough so that there should have been wing marks on the walls of the Pentagon. I have been unable to find those wing marks. So where were they? Did this vessel -- vehicle, or whatever it was -- have wings? Apparently not, because if it had had wings, they would have made marks on the side of the Pentagon.

    One person counteracted my theory, and said, "Oh, you've got it all wrong. And the reason that it's wrong is that as the airplane came across, one wing tipped down and hit the ground and broke off." I said, "Fine, that's possible, one wing could have broken off." But if I understand airplanes correctly, most airplanes have two wings. I haven't met an airplane with only one wing. So where was the mark for the second wing? OK, one broke off -- there should have been a mark for the second wing. I could not find that in any of the photographs that I've analyzed. Now I've been very careful to not say what went in there. Why? Because you don't have that evidence. …

    I did -- I've never believed that it was an airplane since I've looked at the photographs. Up until the time I looked at the photographs, I accepted what was being said. After I looked at it -- NO WAY! …

    We pride ourselves with the "free press." I do not believe the "free press" is free any more. It's very expensive. It's very expensive. And the press is saying what they have been told to say about this.

    Now, do I have proof of that? No. But I believe that what is being -- what certainly the -- the stories that were told -- all about 9/11 were false. I mean, you take a look at the buildings falling down. They didn't fall down because airplanes hit them. They fell down because of explosives went off inside. Demolition. Look at Building 7, for God's sake. It didn't fall down to its side. It didn't fall to this direction or that direction; just like the two Towers. …

    When you look at the temperatures that you can create with fuel in a gas tank or a fuel tank of an airplane, and then you investigate the amount of heat that would be required to melt -- to melt -- the superstructure of the buildings that came tumbling down, when you put all of that together, the one thing that shows; It does not match the facts. What is it they do not want the public to know?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daNr_TrBw6E
  • Video documentary One Nation Under Siege 7/11/06: "One of my experiences in the Army was being in charge of the Army’s Imagery Interpretation for Scientific and Technical Intelligence during the Cold War. I measured pieces of Soviet equipment from photographs. It was my job. I look at the hole in the Pentagon and I look at the size of an airplane that was supposed to have hit the Pentagon. And I said, ‘The plane does not fit in that hole’. So what did hit the Pentagon? What hit it? Where is it? What's going on?" http://www.undersiegemovie.com

  • Signatory of a Letter to Congress regarding the 9/11 Commission Report 9/13/04, signed by 25 military, intelligence, and law enforcement veterans:

    "[W]e the undersigned wish to bring to the attention of the Congress and the people of the United States what we believe are serious shortcomings in the report and its recommendations. …

    Omission is one of the major flaws in the Commission’s report. We are aware of significant issues and cases that were duly reported to the commission by those of us with direct knowledge, but somehow escaped attention. …

    The omission of such serious and applicable issues and information by itself renders the report flawed, and casts doubt on the validity of many of its recommendations. ...

    The Commission, with its incomplete report of "facts and circumstances", intentional avoidance of assigning accountability, and disregard for the knowledge, expertise and experience of those who actually do the job, has now set about pressuring our Congress and our nation to hastily implement all its recommendations. ...

    We the undersigned, who have worked within various government agencies (FBI, CIA, FAA, DIA, Customs) responsible for national security and public safety, call upon you in Congress to include the voices of those with first-hand knowledge and expertise in the important issues at hand. We stand ready to do our part." Link to signatories
  • Interview with Laurie Van Auken, conducted by Richard Greene on Air America Radio9/11/07: "It's incredible some of these things that still are unanswered. The 9/11 Report; that was totally inadequate. I mean the questions that anybody has after reading that. You know, like -- One of the questions, "Why would people even get in planes and come after us?" That question was not at all addressed, much less all of these very, very interesting events that were going on that day, like Laurie was talking about.

    How could our national intelligence and defense operations be so inept that they could not communicate; that they could not scramble jets; that they could not take defensive action? And I totally agree. I always thought the Pentagon had all sorts of air defense sort of equipment around it; that they could take out anything that was coming at it. And for a plane to be able to just fly low right over Washington and slam into that thing is just -- I mean, you still just shake your head. How in the world could that happen? ...

    There's a very specific glide path that comes in for planes to land at [Reagan] National Airport [one mile from the Pentagon]. And you know whether it's somebody using a different transponder but even a plane any plane, a military plane with a transponder going -- that was flying that low into Washington, a big plane like that should have set off alarm bells."

  • Charter Signer Commissioned and Non-commissioned U.S. Military Officers petition calling for a new investigation of 9/11

    Personal statement of support:

    "We who are military officers are sworn to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that includes current and past presidents and vice-presidents. That oath does not expire with retirement. We took on a career of putting our lives on the line to protect this country, its borders, and its people – not the global financial interests of multinational corporations. The tragedy of 9/11 has been falsely used to deceive this nation into unnecessary and illegal corporate wars of aggression, killing over 5,000 of our finest comrades in arms (to say nothing of the countless innocent civilians in the target countries). It has been used to illegally take away our Constitutional rights and jeopardize the Constitution itself. These treasonous exploitations of 9/11, started under Cheney/Bush, have been continued and even expanded under President Obama. It is now clear that until the truth of 9/11 is acknowledged and the myth of the official Bush conspiracy theory is exposed, all these evils will continue, no matter which party is in power. It is therefore incumbent on us who are military officers to live up to our oath by doing everything in our power to peacefully bring about a new and truly independent investigation of 9/11 and its cover-up so that our Constitution may be restored and our Republic healed. So help us God!"
  • Member: Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth Association Statement:

    "Scholars and professionals with various kinds of expertise---including architects, engineers, firefighters, intelligence officers, lawyers, medical professionals, military officers, philosophers, religious leaders, physical scientists, and pilots---have spoken out about radical discrepancies between the official account of the 9/11 attacks and what they, as independent researchers, have learned.

    They have established beyond any reasonable doubt that the official account of 9/11 is false and that, therefore, the official “investigations” have really been cover-up operations.

    Thus far, however, there has been no response from political leaders in Washington or, for that matter, in other capitals around the world. Our organization, Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth, has been formed to help bring about such a response.

    We believe that the truth about 9/11 needs to be exposed now---not in 50 years as a footnote in the history books---so the policies that have been based on the Bush-Cheney administration’s interpretation of the 9/11 attacks can be changed.

    We are, therefore, calling for a new, independent investigation of 9/11 that takes account of evidence that has been documented by independent researchers but thus far ignored by governments and the mainstream media."

  • Video 9/11/04: "A lot of these pieces of information, taken together, prove that the official story, the official conspiracy theory of 9/11 is a bunch of hogwash. It’s impossible. … There’s a second group of facts having to do with the cover up. … Taken together these things prove that high levels of our government don’t want us to know what happened and who’s responsible.…

    Who gained from 9/11? Who covered up crucial information about 9/11? And who put out the patently false stories about 9/11 in the first place? When you take those three things together, I think the case is pretty clear that it’s highly placed individuals in the administration with all roads passing through Dick Cheney.

    I think the very kindest thing that we can say about George W. Bush and all the people in the U.S. Government that have been involved in this massive cover-up, the very kindest thing we can say is that they were aware of impending attacks and let them happen. Now some people will say that’s much too kind, however even that is high treason and conspiracy to commit murder." http://video.go

  • Charter Signer Commissioned and Non-commissioned U.S. Military Officers petition calling for a new investigation of 9/11

    Personal statement of support:

    "When faced with the many discrepancies and outright falsifications that have taken place in what was represented as an investigation into the events of 9/11/01, what is a person of conscience, sworn to defend this country and its constitution, to do? The option of putting it out of your mind to focus on the minutia of daily life does not seem available. Is it possible to do that and not feel in the back of your mind the slipping away of values and ideals that have been inculcated in all of us, and which we thought we had the birthright to assume were shared by those who were entrusted with high office?

    Those bedrock assumptions stand openly challenged by a government that, far from answering the questions raised by conscientious researchers, does not even address or acknowledge the large gaps between what is possible and the official representation of the facts. Instead, the obvious misinformation about the origin and nature of the attacks, and the horror of the day itself are cynically used as an excuse for taking the nation to long and costly wars, the justification for which was never strong, and diminishes with every unanswered question, and every officially ignored piece of contrary evidence. It is nothing less than a breaking of faith with those who wear the uniform of the nation. We, along with every citizen of this country deserve a true and honest account of 9/11. The body of omissions and distortions put forward by our government to date will not answer. We demand the truth, and following from that, justice."
  • Article Twenty-five U.S. Military Officers Challenge Official Account of 9/11 1/14/08:

    “September 11, 2001 seems destined to be the watershed event of our lives and the greatest test for our democracy in our lifetimes. The evidence of government complicity in the lead-up to the events, the failure to respond during the event, and the astounding lack of any meaningful investigation afterwards, as well as the ignoring of evidence turned up by others that renders the official explanation impossible, may signal the end of the American experiment. It has been used to justify all manners of measures to legalize repression at home and as a pretext for behaving as an aggressive empire abroad. Until we demand an independent, honest, and thorough investigation and accountability for those whose action and inaction led to those events and the cover-up, our republic and our Constitution remain in the gravest danger.” http://www.opednews.com

  • Contributor to 9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out 8/23/06: Account of Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, Pentagon employee and eyewitness to the events at the Pentagon on 9/11. "I believe the Commission failed to deeply examine the topic at hand, failed to apply scientific rigor to its assessment of events leading up to and including 9/11, failed to produce a believable and unbiased summary of what happened, failed to fully examine why it happened, and even failed to include a set of unanswered questions for future research. ...

    It is as a scientist that I have the most trouble with the official government conspiracy theory, mainly because it does not satisfy the rules of probability or physics. The collapses of the World Trade Center buildings clearly violate the laws of probability and physics. ...

    There was a dearth of visible debris on the relatively unmarked [Pentagon] lawn, where I stood only minutes after the impact. Beyond this strange absence of airliner debris, there was no sign of the kind of damage to the Pentagon structure one would expect from the impact of a large airliner. This visible evidence or lack thereof may also have been apparent to the secretary of defense [Donald Rumsfeld], who in an unfortunate slip of the tongue referred to the aircraft that slammed into the Pentagon as a "missile". ...

    I saw nothing of significance at the point of impact - no airplane metal or cargo debris was blowing on the lawn in front of the damaged building as smoke billowed from within the Pentagon. ... all of us staring at the Pentagon that morning were indeed looking for such debris, but what we expected to see was not evident.

    The same is true with regard to the kind of damage we expected. ... But I did not see this kind of damage. Rather, the facade had a rather small hole, no larger than 20 feet in diameter. Although this facade later collapsed, it remained standing for 30 or 40 minutes, with the roof line remaining relatively straight.

    The scene, in short, was not what I would have expected from a strike by a large jetliner. It was, however, exactly what one would expect if a missile had struck the Pentagon. ...

    More information is certainly needed regarding the events of 9/11 and the events leading up to that terrible day."

  • Statement to the PatriotsQuestion911.com website 3/25/07: "After 4+ years of research since retirement in 2002, I am 100% convinced that the attacks of September 11, 2001 were planned, organized, and committed by treasonous perpetrators that have infiltrated the highest levels of our government. It is now time to take our country back.

    The "collapse" of WTC Building 7 shows beyond any doubt that the demolitions were pre-planned. There is simply no way to demolish a 47-story building (on fire) over a coffee break. It is also impossible to report the building’s collapse before it happened, as BBC News did, unless it was pre-planned. Further damning evidence is Larry Silverstein's video taped confession in which he states "they made that decision to pull [WTC 7] and we watched the building collapse." [Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories. It would have been the tallest building in 33 states. Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers. However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks." Watch the collapse videohere. And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.]

    We cannot let the pursuit of justice fail. Those of us in the military took an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic". Just because we have retired does not make that oath invalid, so it is not just our responsibility, it is our duty to expose the real perpetrators of 9/11 and bring them to justice, no matter how hard it is, how long it takes, or how much we have to suffer to do it.

    We owe it to those who have gone before us who executed that same oath, and who are doing the same thing in Iraq and Afghanistan right now. Those of us who joined the military and faithfully executed orders that were given us had to trust our leaders. The violation and abuse of that trust is not only heinous, but ultimately the most accurate definition of treason!"http://PatriotsQuestion911.com

  • Audio interview with Rob Balsamo 6/25/07: Regarding the 9/11 Commission's account of the impact of Flight 77 at the Pentagon and discrepancies with the actual Flight Data Recorder information:

    "After I did my own analysis of it, it's obvious that there's discrepancies between the two stories; between the 9/11 Commission and the flight data recorder information. And I think that's where we really need to focus a lot of our attention to get the help that we need in order to put pressure on government agencies to actually do a real investigation of 9/11. And not just from a security standpoint, but from even an aviation standpoint, like any accident investigation would actually help the aviators out by finding reasons for things happening. ...

    The things that really got my attention were the amount of descent rate that you had to have at the end of the flight, of Flight 77, that would have made it practically impossible to hit the light poles. [Editor's note: Destruction of the light poles near the Pentagon by Flight 77 was stated in the 9/11 Commission Report.] Essentially it would have been too high at that point to the point of impact where the main body of the airplane was hitting between the first and second floor of the Pentagon. ...

    You know, I'd ride my bike to the Pentagon. So, you know I'm a little bit familiar with that area. [Editor's note: Lt. Col. Latas served as a Weapons Requirement Officer at the Pentagon.] But, you know, that kind of descent rate it would have been impossible essentially for the results that we see physically from what the flight data recorder was recording. Like I say, that's an area that I think deserves explanation. ...

    The ground track [the path of the airplane] is off from the 9/11 Commission. There are several things that can be brought up but it's been a while since I've seen the film and looked at the flight data recorder. And I can't think of all the discrepancies I saw, but there are several there. [The film he refers to is Pandora's Black Box, Chapter 2, Flight of American 77.] ...

    And I think that we Americans need to demand further investigation just to clarify the discrepancies that you've [Pilots for 9/11 Truth] found. And I think that we need to be getting on the phone with our Congressmen and women and letting them know that we don't accept the excuses that we're hearing now, that we want true investigators to do a true investigation." http://video.google.com

  • Interview Alex Jones Show 4/11/07:

    Alex Jones: Recap Hani Hanjour's maneuver, what they claim -- go through the maneuver they claim he did and then what supposedly happened there at the Pentagon ...

    Commander Muga: The maneuver at the Pentagon was just a tight spiral coming down out of 7,000 feet. And a commercial aircraft, while they can in fact structurally somewhat handle that maneuver, they are very, very, very difficult. And it would take considerable training. In other words, commercial aircraft are designed for a particular purpose and that is for comfort and for passengers and it's not for military maneuvers. And while they are structurally capable of doing them, it takes some very, very talented pilots to do that. ...

    When a commercial airplane gets that high, it gets very, very close to getting into what you refer to as a speed high-speed stall. And a high-speed stall can be very, very violent on a commercial-type aircraft and you never want to get into that situation. I just can't imagine an amateur even being able to come close to performing a maneuver of that nature.

    And as far as hijacking the airplanes, once again getting back to the nature of pilots and airplanes, there is no way that a pilot would give up an airplane to hijackers. ...

    I mean, hell, a guy doesn't give up a TV remote control much less a complicated 757. And so to think that pilots would allow a plane to be taken over by a couple of 5 foot 7, 150 pound guys with a one-inch blade boxcutter is ridiculous.

    And also in all four planes, if you remember, none of the planes ever switched on their transponder to the hijack code. There's a very, very simple code that you put in if you suspect that your plane is being hijacked. It takes literally just a split-second for you to put your hand down on the center console and flip it over. And not one of the four planes ever transponded a hijack code, which is most, most unusual. ...

    Commercial airplanes are very, very complex pieces of machines. And they're designed for two pilots up there, not just two amateur pilots, but two qualified commercial pilots up there. And to think that you're going to get an amateur up into the cockpit and fly, much less navigate, it to a designated target, the probability is so low, that it's bordering on impossible."

  • Statement to the PatriotsQuestion911.com website 8/20/07: "I started questioning the Sept 11, 2001 “story” only days after the event. It just didn't make any sense to me. How could a steel and concrete building collapse after being hit by a Boeing 767? Didn't the engineers design it to withstand a direct hit from a Boeing 707, approximately the same size and weight of the 767? The evidence just didn't add up. ...

    At the Pentagon, the pilot of the Boeing 757 did quite a feat of flying. I have 6,000 hours of flight time in Boeing 757’s and 767’s and could not have flown it the way the flight path was described.

    I was also a Navy fighter pilot and Air Combat Instructor, U.S. Navy Fighter Weapons School and have experience flying low altitude, high speed aircraft. I could not have done what these beginners did. Something stinks to high heaven!

    Where is the damage to the wall of the Pentagon from the wings? Where are the big pieces that always break away in an accident? Where is all the luggage? Where are the miles and miles of wire, cable, and lines that are part and parcel of any large aircraft? Where are the steel engine parts? Where is the steel landing gear? Where is the tail section that would have broken into large pieces?

    I also personally knew American Airlines Captain “Chick” Burlingame, who was the captain of Flight 77 which allegedly hit the Pentagon, and I know he would not have given up his airplane to crazies!

    And at the Shanksville Pennsylvania impact site, where is any of the wreckage?!!! Of all the pictures I have seen, there is only a hole! Where is any piece of a crashed airplane? Why was the area cordoned off, and no inspection allowed by the normal accident personnel? Where is any evidence at all?

    When one starts using his own mind, and not what one was told, there is very little to believe in the official “story”. ...

    Every question leads to another question that has not been answered by anyone in authority. This is just the beginning as to why I don’t believe the official “story” and why I want the truth to be told."http://PatriotsQuestion911.com

    This is, without question, the most important modern reference on state-sponsored terrorism, and also the reference that most pointedly suggests that select rogue elements within the US Government, most likely led by Dick Cheney with the assistance of George Tenet, Buzzy Kronguard, and others close to the Wall Street gangs, are the most guilty of state-sponsored terrorism....

    "If you complete a careful analysis of the events on 9/11 to include photos, videos, written reports, recorded radio transmissions, and discussions with those on site as purported by our nations leaders you will find that what happened according to official statements and how our nation's leaders used their analysis and comments to justify our 1990's pre-planned invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan, the Balkans, and Somalia bears little relationship to the truth."

Had previously flown the actual two United Airlines aircraft that were hijacked on 9/11 (Flight 93, which impacted in Pennsylvania, and Flight 175, the second plane to hit the WTC).
  • Video interview 9/11 Ripple Effect 8/07: "I flew the two actual aircraft which were involved in 9/11; the Fight number 175 and Flight 93, the 757 that allegedly went down in Shanksville and Flight 175 is the aircraft that's alleged to have hit the South Tower. I don't believe it's possible for, like I said, for a terrorist, a so-called terrorist to train on a [Cessna] 172, then jump in a cockpit of a 757-767 class cockpit, and vertical navigate the aircraft, lateral navigate the aircraft, and fly the airplane at speeds exceeding it's design limit speed by well over 100 knots, make high-speed high-banked turns, exceeding -- pulling probably 5, 6, 7 G's. And the aircraft would literally fall out of the sky. I couldn't do it and I'm absolutely positive they couldn't do it." http://americanbuddhist.net
  • Article 7/17/05: "The government story they handed us about 9/11 is total B.S. plain and simple." … Wittenberg convincingly argued there was absolutely no possibility that Flight 77 could have "descended 7,000 feet in two minutes, all the while performing a steep 280 degree banked turn before crashing into the Pentagon's first floor wall without touching the lawn."…

    "For a guy to just jump into the cockpit and fly like an ace is impossible - there is not one chance in a thousand," said Wittenberg, recalling that when he made the jump from Boeing 727's to the highly sophisticated computerized characteristics of the 737's through 767's it took him considerable time to feel comfortable flying." http://www.arcticbeacon.com
  • Audio Interview 9/16/04: Regarding Flight 77, which allegedly hit the Pentagon. "The airplane could not have flown at those speeds which they said it did without going into what they call a high speed stall. The airplane won’t go that fast if you start pulling those high G maneuvers at those bank angles. … To expect this alleged airplane to run these maneuvers with a total amateur at the controls is simply ludicrous...

    It’s roughly a 100 ton airplane. And an airplane that weighs 100 tons all assembled is still going to have 100 tons of disassembled trash and parts after it hits a building. There was no wreckage from a 757 at the Pentagon. … The vehicle that hit the Pentagon was not Flight 77. We think, as you may have heard before, it was a cruise missile." http://911underground.com

  • Essay Debunking the Debunkers 2/14/05: "For over a decade now, the PTB [Powers That Be] have used an odd vehicle to do their debunking on a variety of issues - Popular Mechanics Magazine (a Hearst publication). I suppose they are targeting the back-yard mechanic and auto-enthusiast crowd, who are often prone to accepting conspiracy facts and theories.

    In the March 2005 issue, PM magazine singled out 16 issues or claims of the 9/11 skeptics that point to government collusion and systematically attempted to debunk each one. Of the 16, most missed the mark and almost half were straw men arguments - either ridiculous arguments that few conspiracists believed or restatements of the arguments that were highly distorted so as to make them look weaker than they really were. ...

    I am one of those who claim there are factual arguments pointing to conspiracy, and that truth is not served by taking cheap shots at those who see gaping flaws in the government story ...

    There is significant evidence that the aircraft impacts did not cause the collapse [of the Twin Towers] ...

    The issues of the penetration hole [at the Pentagon] and the lack of large pieces of debris simply do not jive with the official story, but they are explainable if you include the parking lot video evidence that shows a huge white explosion at impact. This cannot happen with an aircraft laden only with fuel. It can only happen in the presence of high explosives." http://www.rense.com

  • Statement to the PatriotsQuestion911.com website 3/23/07: "As a former General Electric Turbine engineering specialist and manager and then CEO of a turbine engineering company, I can guarantee that none of the high tech, high temperature alloy engines on any of the four planes that crashed on 9/11 would be completely destroyed, burned, shattered or melted in any crash or fire. Wrecked, yes, but not destroyed. Where are all of those engines, particularly at the Pentagon? If jet powered aircraft crashed on 9/11, those engines, plus wings and tail assembly, would be there.

    Additionally, in my experience as an officer in NORAD as a Tactical Director for the Chicago-Milwaukee Air Defense and as a current private pilot, there is no way that an aircraft on instrument flight plans (all commercial flights are IFR) would not be intercepted when they deviate from their flight plan, turn off their transponders, or stop communication with Air Traffic Control. No way! With very bad luck, perhaps one could slip by, but no there's no way all four of them could!

    Finally, going over the hill and highway and crashing into the Pentagon right at the wall/ground interface is nearly impossible for even a small slow single engine airplane and no way for a 757. Maybe the best pilot in the world could accomplish that but not these unskilled "terrorists".

  • Essay "Treason, Betrayal and Deceit: 9/11 and Beyond" 9/10/09:

    "The official 9/11 Commission's work and report were at best an incomplete exercise. Many people dismiss the findings of the Commission, and that includes its co-chairs [ Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton ]. Many others who utterly distrust the 9/11 Commission report, dismiss the US Government’s explanation of it, and point to both an official cover-up and an “inside job,” include veteran fighter pilots, EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians), air defense experts, experienced commercial pilots, demolition experts, architects and civil engineers – none of them professions that inherently attract and retain the gullible and credulous.

    Several things are very clear to me from a careful assessment of both official and critical evaluations of the 9/11 attacks. First, the striking aircraft alone simply could not have brought down either of the two buildings in the manner in which they fell, much less a third building which was not hit by a plane (I expect the one intended to do that as a "cover" had ended up in that Pennsylvania field), given the available physical evidence and a wealth of expert testimony. This means the attackers had assistance on the ground, and it had to have been active before the attacks occurred: preparing buildings for controlled demolition is not something done haphazardly in the midst of chaos.

    Second, only two intelligence agencies had the expertise, assets, access and political protection to execute 9/11 in the air and on the ground: our CIA and Israel's Mossad. Only one had the incentive, using the “who benefits” principle: Mossad. And that incentive dovetailed perfectly with the neo-con’s agenda and explicitly expressed need for a catalytic event to mobilize the American public for their wars, using American military power to destroy Israel’s enemies. Only the unexpected strength of the Iraqi resistance kept Syria and Iran from being attacked in the second Bush Administration. Thus, the evidential trail for 9/11 and the wars in Afghanistan & Iraq run from PNAC, AIPAC and their cohorts; through the mostly Jewish neo-cons in the Bush Administration; and back to the Israeli government. None of the denials and political machinations can alter that essential reality. Terms such as treason, betrayal and deceit do not overstate the case against them.

    Finally, we need to take a hard look at why the mainstream media (MSM) have paid more attention to Sarah Palin’s wardrobe than they have to dissecting blatant falsehoods, discrepancies and inconsistencies in the US Government’s treatment of 9/11 and its aftermath. And the reason is that on this issue, all are on the same side, and the official line is the one they all prefer – “all” meaning the PNAC alumni who took over the Bush Administration’s national security apparatus and their counterparts in the Obama administration, AIPAC and the rest of the numerous Jewish PACs, the MSM owners and Israel." http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article23460.htm

  • Congressional briefing testimony 7/22/05: "It falls to me this morning to bring to your attention the story of Saeed Sheikh, whose full name is Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, and his astonishing rise to power in Al Qaeda, his crucial role in 9/11, which is completely, utterly, missing from the 9/11 Commission report…

    The 9/11 Commission which studied US intelligence and law enforcement community performance in great detail, (maybe not so much great detail, but they did), neglected to cover the community’s performance during the weeks following the attacks to determine who was responsible for them, not a word about that in the Report.

    The Report does discuss the immediate US responses but the immediate investigation is never addressed, and anyone who has closely studied the post-9/11 investigation knows that the first breakthrough came two weeks into the investigation when the money transfers from the United Arab Emirates to the hijackers were uncovered.

    Furthermore, if you have studied that investigation, you know there is no disputing that while investigators may have struggled with the identity of the paymaster, they were clear about one thing, he was Al Qaeda’s finance chief. For this reason alone you have to ask why the 9/11 Commission Report never mentions the finance chief’s role as the 9/11 paymaster." http://www.vt911.org

And that until they answer all the questions, you will leave open, at least in the mind of certain individuals, the possibility of collusion, the possibility of conspiracy ...

    We have an absolute requirement to know what happened on 9/11. And no stone should be left unturned. And the 9/11 Commission Report was not up to the task. And there must be a re-opening of the investigation, so that we the people of the United States know what occurred on that horrific day.

    And that way it lays to rest all conspiracies. We'll find out what happened. Did Bush and Cheney plan the demise of the building? Was this a terrorist attack by Al Qaida? Or was it something in between? We frankly don't know because the body of data is incomplete. So, let's find the body of data and let's not rush to judgment. ...

    Now, I'll tell you where I have seen attachments that look like that -- on military aircraft.

    Personal statement of support:

    "
    On September 11, 2001, I was stationed in Seoul Korea where I had been for only six weeks prior to 9/11. Each day following my workday I walked out of the same gate to my apartment. On September 11, 2001 I noticed barricades and obstacles had been placed in the corner of the parking lot; something very different than our normal day-to-day operations. As I walked out of the gate the time was approximately 5pm in Korea. That evening I was watching the television news and learned of the 9/11 events that shocked the World. It was like a Hollywood movie, and it took a little time for it to sink in. Was what I was seeing on my television screen really happening? When the second plane impacted the South Tower I knew that the action had to be deliberate. It was certainly no accident. What remained curious to me was the sudden installation of the barricades on my walk that served as increased Force Protection, which had apparently been implemented world-wide, immediately after the shocking events had occurred.

    I went to work the next day and asked myself why this had happened, and who was to benefit from this mayhem. It took me some time to analyze the situation, and I concluded that the events of 9/11 were filled with strange news commentary that just didn't make sense. Usually, terrorists make demands, and have a cause, but none of this was unfolding. It all appeared to me to be a pre-planned operation from start to finish.

    I kept my skeptical views quietly to myself for the next few years, which included an event filled, one-year tour in Iraq where I was wounded in a rocket attack on our base camp, and was decorated with a Purple Heart.

    Following my tour in Iraq, I was assigned to US Army North (5th Army) as an Intelligence Analyst. This was to be the beginning of the end of my Army career. One evening at work I received an email, which argued that people who subscribed to theories contrary to the official storyline about the 9/11 attacks were “crazy”. The author of this email then offered his own “proof” of what happens to an aircraft when it hits a concrete structure; the DOD footage was of an F-4 Phantom attached to a sled and impacting a concrete barrier at over 500mph, and that the official story of what happened at the Pentagon that day is correct because this file footage showed the F-4 disappearing into the concrete. I replied to the writer that this was faulty logic, and not good analysis as the barrier was a test section of a dome lid to go atop nuclear power stations, not the old and brittle concrete used in the Pentagon-or even the newly poured concrete at the Pentagon! I closed my email reply by suggesting that a new investigation into the events of Sept 11, 2001 was required because we had all been deceived.The next day I found myself being investigated for making statements disloyal to the United States of America, for even questioning the events of Sept. 11, 2001. I was being seriously threatened with an Army Court Martial and suddenly found myself fighting the highest levels of the US Army over many months and at great cost to me. I was eventually exonerated when US Army North was told to “stand down” by senior leadership in the Pentagon, and was allowed to retire. Since that experience, I've been an untiring advocate for 9/11 Truth, and for a fair investigation of the tragic events of 9/11, and I will continue to educate my fellow citizens about that day, and the powers that were behind such astonishing and brazen attack against our country. I will not tire, I will not quit until justice for the victims is lawfully served.

  • Charter Signer Commissioned and Non-commissioned U.S. Military Officers petition calling for a new investigation of 9/11
  • Statement to the PatriotsQuestion911.com website 6/3/07: "I have been a licensed pilot with a commercial rating, multi-engine, IFR, since 1981. Prior to that I served as an Electronic Warfare / Electronic Signals Intelligence (EW ELINT) specialist in the U.S. Navy, with many 'first time' signal intercepts in the national (NSA) sigint database. Since I left the Navy in 1979, I have been heavily involved in DoD weapons system testing and certification. I have held high level clearances most of my career.

    There is no doubt in my mind that what transpired on September 11, 2001, was an inside job carried out by members of our own government. Based on my experience as a commercial pilot, I do not believe that it's possible for four large commercial airliners to have gone off course for as long as they did and as far as they did and were not intercepted by Air Force pilots, without the explicit cooperation of highly placed people in the military and government.

    I also do not believe that both of the WTC Twin Towers could have been identically pulverized and that both identically collapsed into their own footprints as a result of a single airplane impact and the fire from a few thousand gallons of jet fuel. I also do not believe that WTC Building 7, which wasn't even hit by an airplane, could have entirely collapsed as a result of a few fires, particularly in a manner that is entirely consistent with a controlled demolition.

    Additionally, the visible evidence at the Pentagon is inconsistent with an impact by a Boeing 757. There was virtually no debris from the 80-ton airplane, except a few small pieces that were picked up by hand. Nor was there any evidence of holes in the building that surely would have resulted from the impacts of the two 6-ton RB-211 engines on the alleged Boeing 757. Similarly, at Shanksville, PA, the small gash in the earth is far too small to have resulted from the impact of a Boeing 757.

    All of these factors have convinced me that our government was fully onboard with what took place on 9/11. The official account of 9/11 is absolute B.S. We, as citizens of this great country, need to do research, question the government, and demand a full, impartial investigation to determine what actually took place that day." http://PatriotsQuestion911.com

Watch the collapse video here. And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.

  • Member: Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth Association Statement:

    "Scholars and professionals with various kinds of expertise---including architects, engineers, firefighters, intelligence officers, lawyers, medical professionals, military officers, philosophers, religious leaders, physical scientists, and pilots---have spoken out about radical discrepancies between the official account of the 9/11 attacks and what they, as independent researchers, have learned.

    They have established beyond any reasonable doubt that the official account of 9/11 is false and that, therefore, the official “investigations” have really been cover-up operations.

    Thus far, however, there has been no response from political leaders in Washington or, for that matter, in other capitals around the world. Our organization, Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth, has been formed to help bring about such a response.

    We believe that the truth about 9/11 needs to be exposed now---not in 50 years as a footnote in the history books---so the policies that have been based on the Bush-Cheney administration’s interpretation of the 9/11 attacks can be changed.

    Senator Gravel: I have told the leaders of this organization, Les Jamison and Dr. Pepper, I would be honored to serve on that Commission. And I hope the citizens of New York pass this initiative. And I don't know if they'll be able to overcome the powers of the Federal government, but I tell you, if I become President of the United States, that Commission will be created in spades.

    We will have a Commission that will re-examine not only what happened at 9/11 and post-9/11, but how -- re-examining all of the intelligence prior to 9/11 -- why the failure took place. And they'll subpoena anybody and everybody and they'll put them under oath, starting from the President of the United States on down. And if there's any perjury taking place or criminality is discovered, we'll prosecute them from the President on down to the fullest extent of the law. And if they go to jail, they go to jail.

  • Essay in The American Spectator 3/13/09:

    "Seven years after Osama bin Laden's last verifiable appearance among the living, there is more evidence for Elvis's presence among us than for his. Hence there is reason to ask whether the paradigm of Osama bin Laden as terrorism's deus ex machina and of al Qaeda as the prototype of terrorism may be an artifact of our Best and Brightest's imagination, and whether investment in this paradigm has kept our national security establishment from thinking seriously about our troubles' sources. So let us take a fresh look at the fundamentals.

    Negative evidence alone compels the conclusion that Osama is long since dead. Since October 2001, when Al Jazeera's Tayseer Alouni interviewed him, no reputable person reports having seen him—not even after multiple-blind journeys through intermediaries. The audio and video tapes alleged to be Osama's never convinced impartial observers. The guy just does not look like Osama. Some videos show him with a Semitic aquiline nose, while others show him with a shorter, broader one. Next to that, differences between colors and styles of beard are small stuff.

    Nor does the tapes' Osama sound like Osama. In 2007 Switzerland's Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence, which does computer voice recognition for bank security, compared the voices on 15 undisputed recordings of Osama with the voices on 15 subsequent ones attributed to Osama, to which they added two by native Arab speakers who had trained to imitate him and were reading his writings. All of the purported Osama recordings (with one falling into a gray area) differed clearly from one another as well as from the genuine ones. By contrast, the CIA found all the recordings authentic. It is hard to imagine what methodology might support this conclusion.

    Also in 2007, Professor Bruce Lawrence, who heads Duke University's religious studies program, argued in a book on Osama's messages that their increasingly secular language is inconsistent with Osama's Wahhabism. Lawrence noted as well that the Osama figure in the December 2001 video, which many have taken as his assumption of responsibility for 9/11, wears golden rings—decidedly un-Wahhabi. He also writes with the wrong hand. Lawrence concluded that the messages are fakes, and not very good ones. The CIA has judged them all good.

    Above all, whereas Elvis impersonators at least sing the King's signature song, "You ain't nutin' but a hound dawg," the words on the Osama tapes differ substantively from what the real Osama used to say—especially about the most important matter. On September 16, 2001, on Al Jazeera, Osama said of 9/11: "I stress that I have not carried out this act, which appears to have been carried out by individuals with their own motivation." Again, in the October interview with Tayseer Alouni, he limited his connection with 9/11 to ideology: "If they mean, or if you mean, that there is a link as a result of our incitement, then it is true. We incite…" But in the so-called "confession video" that the CIA found in December, the Osama figure acts like the chief conspirator. The fact that the video had been made for no self-evident purpose except perhaps to be found by the Americans should have raised suspicion. Its substance, the celebratory affirmation of a responsibility for 9/11 that Osama had denied, should also have weighed against the video's authenticity. Why would he wait to indict himself until after U.S. forces and allies had secured Afghanistan? But the CIA acted as if it had caught Osama red-handed." http://spectator.org

  • Interviewed on The Alex Jones Show 4/2/08:

    "Appearing on The Alex Jones Show, Ventura said that his initial reaction to 9/11 was much like most people at the time, and he accepted the official story outright, a response he now regrets because he was in a position of power and could have used it to raise a lot of pointed questions.

    "I kicked myself when it initially happened that the light didn't go off but I was so shocked that this thing had even taken place that I apologize for not being more aware," said Ventura, adding that watching Loose Change at the insistence of his son was part of the catalyst for his wake up call.

    Host Alex Jones is executive producer of Loose Change (get it here), the most watched Internet movie of all time. Ventura said he ran through a rollercoaster of emotions when he saw the film.

    "When I finally did watch it I went through every emotion you could imagine, from laughing, crying, getting sick to my stomach, to the whole emotional thing," said the former Governor.

    "To me questions haven't been answered and are not being answered about 9/11," said Ventura, before highlighting the collapse of Building 7, a 47-story tall skyscraper that was not hit by a plane but collapsed in its own footprint in the late afternoon of September 11.

    "Two planes struck two buildings .... but how is it that a third building fell 5 hours later?" asked Ventura, "How could this building just implode into its own footprint 5 hours later - that's my first question - the 9/11 Commission didn't even devote one page to that in their big volume of investigation," added the former Governor.

    Ventura then explored how it was possible that all three buildings could rapidly collapse at almost free fall speed.

    "How could those buildings fall at the speed of gravity - if you put a stopwatch on them, both of those World Trade Center buildings were on the ground in ten seconds - how can that be?" asked Ventura.

    "If you took a billiard ball and dropped it from the height of the World Trade Center in a vacuum it would hit the ground in 9.3 seconds and if you took that same billiard ball and dropped it 10 stories at a time and merely stopped it and started it it would take 30 seconds - if you dropped it every floor of the World Trade Center to the ground, simply stopping and starting it on gravity it would take over 100 seconds to reach the ground," he surmised.

    Having undergone Basic Underwater Demolition Seal training, Ventura is speaking from an experienced standpoint and he unequivocally stated that he thought the buildings were deliberately imploded.

    "Upon looking at the film in super-slow motion and the way the buildings fell and comparing that to the way that they do like a controlled demolition of a hotel in Las Vegas, they both fell identical."

    "I did watch the film of Building 7 going down and in my opinion there's no doubt that that building was brought down with demolition," said the former Governor.

    Ventura also questioned the lack of wreckage outside of the Pentagon after Flight 77 allegedly struck the building.

    "When I was watching Loose Change with a friend of mine - he happens to work for a company that helps build the Boeing airplanes and they said that when the engines completely disappeared and were destroyed, his response was, excuse my French - bullshit!," said Ventura.

    "I turned to him and said why and he said because they're made of titanium steel - they can't disintegrate." http://prisonplanet.com
  • Video interview The Alex Jones Show 9/26/06: "The thing I question on 9/11 was simply the fact; where were our planes? When all this was going on and planes were being hijacked an hour apart and there were four of them They cover about a six-hour space. At no time, to my knowledge, did we have any fighter planes up in the air. Why? ...

    In light of the fact that there was a cover-up that got us into the Viet Nam war and there was, in my opinion, a cover-up of John Kennedy's assassination, I would just say that I don't believe it's beyond reason to not at least consider that the government certainly would do things like that."http://www.infowars.com/articles
  • Interview Black Op Radio 8/20/04: "At first, again, I wanted to believe 9/11, you know. But the problem I have with 9/11 is just a real simple one. I'm trying to figure out -- and of course they're now attempting to answer it somewhat -- how we could have failed so miserably in not having air defense. ...

    And the problem I have with 9/11 is that. Where the heck was our defense? Who was sleeping at the wheel? While all of these planes... I mean, I've been to air traffic control when I was Governor, and you've got a dozen people there looking at these dials, watching every plane in their sector. They know where it's going and they know what direction it's supposed to be going

    Now, how is it that these planes were able to be hijacked at half hour intervals, turned directly opposite the way they're supposed to be going and no bells went off, no emergency sirens went off, no fighter jets were scrambled? Just what the hell happened in that area of time?! And that's the part that troubles me about 9/11. ...

    I mean here's the Pentagon, the head of our military. How was this plane able to circle the city of Baltimore [sic] at least once, picking out a target, and then drive into it, and we didn't have -- nothing up in the air? There wasn't one scrambled fighter jet up there to defend in any way, shape, or form?"http://www.libertypost.org

  • Statement in support of Medical Professionals petition for Reinvestigation of 9/11:

    "I have been following the 9/11 "story" for over 7 years. The most significant impediment for citizens even considering that the U.S. government is in some way complicit is the unwillingness to entertain that possibility. The fact that the government and the 9/11 Commission Report could not/would not address certain questions raised by the Jersey Girls, scientists, pilots etc., questions which would seem to have easily available factual responses, strongly suggests "cover up."

    I refer to such items as: release of the Pentagon and other videos of the Pentagon crash; explanation of the debris scatter at the PA "crash" site; explanation of how these obviously "hijacked" airliners were not intercepted in a timely fashion -- especially the one in DC; a more evidence-based, scientific explanation of the fall of the twin towers and Building 7.

    The failure to produce this information/evidence, along with much more, can only lead to one conclusion: THERE IS A COVER UP. There is much data to strongly suggest who and what are being protected and shielded by this cover up. Hopefully a sufficient number of citizens will shed their denial and demand answers and explanations from our nations leaders."

    "Against a background of escalating ecological crises, and the fact that large parts of the world´s population are being exposed to extreme poverty, inhuman working conditions and increasing social tensions, the annual global military expenditure has risen to more than 1,000 billion dollars.

    The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalculable social and ecological consequences.

    Unequal distribution of global resources, increasingly controlled by large multinational companies, global debt policy and unfair international trading practices ultimately could not be maintained without military security. In many countries the military is used to repress critical opposition.

    The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 are increasingly used to justify systematic surveillance and the dismantling of constitutional rights. [Bold added for emphasis by Editor of this website.] Even European countries have helped to establish Guantanomo-like secret prisons, where torture in all probability takes place.

    Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.

    Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.

    Faced with the choice between a war, that according to some western leaders, will last for many years or a possible peaceful transformation we support the following demands: ...

    International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. They are used as the central justification for the "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct. International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans, have called for a new investigation."

    "On Behalf of the People of the United States of America, the undersigned Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and affiliates hereby petition for, and demand, a truly independent investigation with subpoena power in order to uncover the full truth surrounding the events of 9/11/01 - specifically the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers and Building 7. We believe that there is sufficient doubt about the official story and therefore that the 9/11 investigation must be re-opened and must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that may have been the actual cause behind the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7."http://www.ae911truth.org/joinus.php
  • Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories. It would have been the tallest building in 33 states. Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers. However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks." Watch the collapse video here. And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.

  • Statement to the PatriotsQuestion911.com website 9/25/07: "When 9/11 occurred I bought the entire government and mainstream media story line. I was a lifelong conservative Republican that voted for Bush/Cheney, twice. Curiosity about JFK’s death, after a late night TV re-run of Oliver Stone’s movie, got me started researching and digging for the truth about his assassins.

    My research lead me to a much more important and timely question: the mystery of what really did happen on 9/11. Everything that seemed real, turned out to be false. The US government and the news media, once again, were lying to the world about the real terrorists and the public murder of 2,972 innocents on 9/11.

    The “Patriot Act” was actually written prior to 9/11 with the intention of destroying the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. It was passed by Congress, based upon the government's myth of 9/11, which was in reality a staged hoax. 9/11 was scripted and executed by rogue elements of the military, FAA, intelligence, and private contractors working for the US government.

    In addition to severely curtailing fundamental rights of Americans, the 9/11 crime was then used by this administration, the one I originally voted for and supported, to justify waging two preemptive wars (and most likely a third war), killing over 4,500 American soldiers, and killing over one million innocent Afghan and Iraqi people.

    It was all premeditated.

    Treason, a false flag military operation, and betrayal of the trust of the American people were committed on 9/11 by the highest levels of the US government and not one person responsible for the crimes, or the cover-up, has been held accountable for the last six years.

    After reading fifteen well researched books, studying eight or nine DVD documentaries, and devoting months of personal research and investigation, I have arrived at one ultimate conclusion: The American government and the US Constitution have been hijacked and subverted by a group of criminals that today are the real terrorists. They are in control of the US government and they have all violated their oaths of office and committed treason against their own citizens.

    John F. Kennedy knew what was a similar truth in his day, and his life was snuffed out, prematurely. Had JFK’s assassins been brought to justice after that 1963 day in Dealey Plaza, some of the very same perpetrators that orchestrated the 9/11 crimes, almost 37 years later, would be in prison where they belong. Don’t let them get away with it, again!" http://PatriotsQuestion911.com

  • Review of The New Pearl Harbor 4/8/04: "Having been kept awake nights in the Bachelor Officer's Quarters at McGuire Air Force Base, NJ, by both Air Force and Navy jet fighters revving and taking off through the night in defense of New York City, I have wondered why, contrary to standard operating procedure, no McGuire jets were scrambled on 9/11. The standard operating procedure is to intercept aircraft that are off course or out of communication, but - even after the first tower was hit - this was not done. Having read Griffin's book, and even though he does not claim to have a conclusive answer to my question, I am beginning to understand. In fact, I am aware of and beginning to understand much much else as well. And I shudder.

    It may be too hot for the popular media to handle, but everyone - especially Air Force and Navy Air Corps veterans - should read and think carefully about the evidence and arguments considered in this book." http://www.amazon.com

    "As Bill Moyers has said, 'We need to know the truth.' " http://rl911truth.org
  • Member: Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth Association Statement

    "When faced with actions that conflict with the universal moral principle that we should not do to others what we would not want done to ourselves or our loved ones, members of faith communities have a responsibility to voice their opposition to those actions. Many religious leaders throughout history have publicly challenged morally unacceptable practices---recently, for example, in the civil rights and anti-apartheid movements.

    A significant moral challenge has emerged due to glaring discrepancies between the official version of the events of September 11, 2001, and the results of extensive independent research by individuals with relevant scientific or professional expertise. . . . As a result of this extensive research carried out by scientists and professionals, it can now be seen that the official account of 9/11 is false beyond any reasonable doubt. ... Because the false account of 9/11 has led to [numerous] evils, it is incumbent on religious leaders, once they realize that the official account is a lie, to speak out."

  • Charter Signer Commissioned and Non-commissioned U.S. Military Officers petition calling for a new investigation of 9/11

    Personal statement of support:

    " Here is what I KNOW:

    1) No need to cover-up what is clean only what is dirty;

    2) No need to fear being taped or sworn under penalty of perjury if honest and speaking what one truly believes to be true; only if one is dishonest and has something to hide and fears accountability;

    3) Families who have suffered the tragedy of a lost child and had nothing to do with it, immediately demand investigations, demand to be polygraphed, cooperate fully with law enforcement, because they know that they may be initially suspected because of police experience and protocols, and, they want the attention of law enforcement on finding the real criminals; in the same fashion, with a tragedy of the magnitude of 9/11 and all of its implications, with so many theories floating around about who was involved, those not involved, should be demanding not obstructing, full, impartial, credible, fully-funded investigations without fear or favor;

    4) As a commercially-rated pilot over forty years, I know that even when small aircraft go down, a full NTSB investigation, often very costly, is ordered in order not only to find out what happened, but to learn lessons, fix what needs to be fixed, so as to prevent future deaths. In the case of 9/11, the largest and most coordinated terrorist attack against U.S. soil, the Bush Administration was dragged kicking and screaming into finally undertaking what what clearly an under-funded, highly restricted, hurried, sloppy, and highly proscribed investigation stacked with members with multiple conflicts-of interest and often investigating allegations against themselves.

    These facts alone, without reference, fear or favor, to any partisan politics, or, to even one of the many so-called "conspiracy theory", or possible scenario of who "really" was involved in 9/11, how, when, where, why, what are the real costs and implications short-run and long-run of 9/11, these facts alone, suggest that the demand for 9/11 Truth, the demand for a real, fully-funded, credible, impartial, conflict-of-interest-free investigation, conducted without fear or favor to anyone, keeping nothing potentially relevant from the scope and depth of the investigation, is no empty or unwarranted, or demented, or unreasonable, or partisan demand."
  • Statement to the PatriotsQuestion911.com website 8/27/08:

    "These different groups are all named what they are calling for: Pilots "FOR 9/11 TRUTH", Architects and Engineers "FOR 9/11 TRUTH", Firefighters "FOR 9/11 TRUTH", etc. They are not named for a particular theory of what happened on 9/11, for example Pilots for Theory X. They are only interested in finding the truth -- whatever it is -- of what happened.

    The mere fact that there was no immediate call for a real, full and competent investigation following 9/11, and in fact that there was ongoing obstruction of any investigation, says it all: we are still far from the truth of what happened and there is simply too much at stake to let it go. What could be wrong or crazy about that position?" http://PatriotsQuestion911.com

(How and why would/could anyone summarily dismiss evidence they have not even bothered to view let alone consider?)

Despite the absence of any visible fire at the time of collapse, the government report alleges WTC Building 7 is the first and only steel-framed high-rise building in the history of mankind to collapse simply as the result of a fire.

Author of over 40 technical papers and contributing author to three books on building design. For more details on Mr. Ayres career, please click here.
  • Statement of support to Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth 7/16/07: "I am a consulting mechanical engineer with over 55 years of experience in the design and construction of all types of buildings including high-rise office towers. I am an expert in heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and fire protection for buildings. I have authored 41 technical papers and I am a chapter author in 3 books covering HVAC systems, building and energy requirements, solar heating and cooling applications, thermal energy storage and earthquake damage to building nonstructural systems.

    I support the work of Dr. Steven Jones. He has provided a scientific foundation for the collapse of the three World Trade Center (WTC) towers. I read the FEMA September, 2002 report, prepared by the American Society of Civil Engineers, and initially accepted their theory of the collapse of WTC 1 and 2. As more information became available on the web, I was motivated to research the subject in a more rigorous manner. I have carefully studied the Jones 2006 paper, "Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Completely Collapse?" and concluded that it is a rational step-by-step study that meets the accepted standards for scientific building research. His critical reviews of the FEMA, NIST, and 9/11 Commission reports are correct. I have signed his petition calling for the release of all U.S. Government-held information regarding the events of 9/11/2001.

    Steven Jones' call for a “serious investigation” of the hypothesis that the WTC 7 and the Twin Towers were brought down, not just by impact damage and fire, but through the use of pre-positioned "cutter-charges" must be the rallying cry for all building design experts to speak out. Dr. Jones is following in the footsteps of Dr. Linus Pauling of the California Institute of Technology, who rallied his fellow scientists to oppose the development of the Hydrogen Bomb and the testing of nuclear weapons. He was later awarded the 1962 Nobel Peace Prize for these efforts."

    "When I saw the collapse of the North Tower the morning of 9/11, the first thing that I said to others watching with me was, "There had to be explosives inside the building." I was amazed later to hear the explanation that the building collapsed due to 'pancaking' after the steel columns 'melted' due to the fires. Especially suspect was the speed with which the government explanation came out (before any detailed examination of the building rubble), and the rapid removal of all the material.

  • Endorsement of the PentaCon documentary: "Well after I reviewed the footage and carefully looked at the information I think it should be considered as credible for public viewing and also very important for people to look at because it shows that there is obviously some fabrication in the official testimony. And I think that everyone should sit down and take a look at it." http://thepentacon.com/
  • Interview 7/14/06: Interviewer: Do you have any theory about how a Boeing 757 could have hit such a secure building without any anti-aircraft defenses being activated or any warning alarms sounded?

    Gallop: I have thought about this very question numerous times. And then I realized I needed to rephrase the question. The real question is what is the probability or likelihood that no anti-aircraft defense, warning alarms or additional security mechanism functioned on that particular day?

    And then we need to think how likely is it then there was a glitch in all the security mechanisms, anti-aircraft defense and warning alarms?

    You know, it takes a while to get around that building. And I remember being so disgusted at the frequency of random drill exercises taking place for us to evacuate the building. It seemed as if they always happened when I had to take care of certain things.

    Yet on September 11th, the day when our lives were threatened, not one alarm. ...

    Interviewer: I know that you have previously been quoted about things like thinking that a bomb had exploded in the Pentagon, and that you did not see any plane debris in the Pentagon. I do not want to misquote you or twist your words. Is there anything you wish to state about these topics?

    Gallop: I have been misquoted on numerous occasions. That happens when individuals have ulterior motives. But here is my statement for the record.

    I was located at the E ring. From my inside perspective, with no knowledge of what had actually happened on the outside, it did sound like a bomb. And we had to escape the building before the floors, debris etc collapsed on us.

    And I don't recall at any time seeing any plane debris. Again, I don't know what plane debris would look like after hitting a building. But I would have recalled unusual looking pieces similar to plane parts.

    ... I was focusing on getting help and getting out. With that in mind, the images are etched in my mind. When I review the pictures regarding the Boeing, in my opinion, the hole didn't appear to be big enough for the 757. I don't know the scientific theory that was created to justify it being a hole created by a 757. What we need to consider is how did the plane go thru the building with all that heat and not burn us (those on the inside) to a crisp? We need to consider, how did the plane break up so to the point it created a perfectly round hole considering the rate of impact?

    I didn't know it was a plane until I was informed at the hospital. If I wasn't informed I would have never believed it. I walked through that place to try to get out before everything collapsed on us . . . surely we should have seen something." http://www.lookingglassnews.org

    We believe there is overwhelming evidence of obstruction of justice, and destruction of evidence voiced even by numerous 9/11 Commissioners themselves. Senator Cleland resigned from the Commission stating, “This investigation is now compromised.”

    NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) 921, which is the National Standard for Fire and Explosion Investigations, very clearly indicates in numerous sections that the possibility of explosives should have been thoroughly investigated. ... Specifically, the use of "exotic accelerants" should have been investigated. In NFPA 921 19.2.4 -“Exotic Accelerants,” three indicators were clearly met that should have led to a thorough investigation into the possible use of “exotic accelerants,” specifically as stated in the guideline, “Thermite mixtures.”

    So, why was the possibility of explosives, controlled demolition, or the use of "exotic accelerants" not thoroughly investigated, or even mentioned in the 9/11 Commission Report?

  • Statement in support of Medical Professionals petition for Reinvestigation of 9/11:

    "There is evidence that suggests the 9/11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people were either planned by or with full foreknowledge were allowed to happen by those in control of the U.S. government and military.

    Furthermore, there is evidence that the collapse of the WTC buildings was the result of controlled detonations; not the result of airliner impacts. Some film coverage shows evidence of detonations being activated.

    These 3,000 deaths happened so that those in control of the U.S. government could use it as the catalyst for two wars -- wars that continue to be as pointless today as that brutal event in the U.S. in 2001.

    Our country, and those who run it, have done a masterful job of instilling fear in the citizens of America so that they will not question the many obvious falsehoods in the official account of 9/11.

  • Statement in support of Medical Professionals petition for Reinvestigation of 9/11:

    "Justice demands the formation of a new 9/11 International Tribunal with its investigative members from multiple nations who are completely immune to corporate/political influence and coercion. Every question raised by the 9/11 Truth Movement must be thoroughly reviewed and answered in great detail, wherever complicity might lodge. All findings shall form a presentment to the International Court of Justice, The Hague. The very concept of "America" must be restored by countering all of the false messages of the cowardly and treasonous "summer patriots." I call on all fellow "Winter Soldiers" to save this beloved nation by demanding the full revelation of all facts relevant to the 9/11 murders." http://mp911truth.org/#LKent

    "Unanswered questions relating to the mechanism of failure for all 3 WTC buildings, suspicious contradictions in testimony during the investigation, conflicts of interest with the executive director of the 9/11 Commission, and the removal of evidence from the crime scenes must be addressed. The earmarks of false flag catastrophe are evident with this event.

    Our nation was traumatized and MOLESTED by the images of 9/11, leaving us vulnerable for manipulation from industrial influences beyond the understanding of the common public. These influences must be exposed as who they are or continuous manipulation and exploitation is likely.

    As a federal employee, former U.S. Army Reserve intelligence analyst and combat stress control officer, I have a lifelong obligation and swore an oath to protect the republic from enemies "foreign and domestic." I do take that oath seriously. My suspicion is that our enemies may be of the domestic variety with this event and they must be exposed.

  • Article Autopsy: No Arabs on Flight 77:

    "I am an ex Naval line officer and a psychiatrist in private practice in New Orleans, a Christian and homeschool dad. It troubled me a great deal that we rushed off to war on the flimsiest of evidence. I considered various ways to provide a smoking gun of who and why Sept 11th happened. Astute observers noticed right away that there were no Arabic sounding names on any of the flight manifests of the planes that “crashed” on that day.

    A list of names on a piece of paper is not evidence, but an autopsy by a pathologist, is. I undertook by FOIA request, to obtain that autopsy list and you are invited to view it below. Guess what? Still no Arabs on the list. In my opinion the monsters who planned this crime made a mistake by not including Arabic names on the original list to make the ruse seem more believable. ...

    The satanic masterminds behind this caper may be feeling pretty smug about the perfect crime, but they have left a raft of clues tying these unfortunates together." The entirety of Dr. Olmstead's lengthy article is available at http://www.physics911.net/olmsted.

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    " 'Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar!' The event (collapse of all three structures) has all of the essential earmarks of a designed demolition. The 'official' story is neither logical nor does it comply with basic knowledge about why building do and do not fall down. The physics is wrong (in the official explanation). e.g. The melting of steel, the lack of explanation for the apparent reports of multiple explosions, the initial events at street level (i.e. exothermic explosions, etc). How can it be that the planes (which seem to have nothing to do with the collapse) were not intercepted when their routes were known well in advance of the (alleged, in the case of Pennsylvania and Pentagon) collisions?

  • Signatory: War Is Illegal Petition 12/07, which states:

    "Against a background of escalating ecological crises, and the fact that large parts of the world´s population are being exposed to extreme poverty, inhuman working conditions and increasing social tensions, the annual global military expenditure has risen to more than 1,000 billion dollars.

    The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalculable social and ecological consequences.

    Unequal distribution of global resources, increasingly controlled by large multinational companies, global debt policy and unfair international trading practices ultimately could not be maintained without military security. In many countries the military is used to repress critical opposition.

    The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 are increasingly used to justify systematic surveillance and the dismantling of constitutional rights. [Bold added for emphasis by Editor of this website.] Even European countries have helped to establish Guantanomo-like secret prisons, where torture in all probability takes place.

    Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.

    Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.

    Faced with the choice between a war, that according to some western leaders, will last for many years or a possible peaceful transformation we support the following demands: ...

    International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. They are used as the central justification for the "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct. International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans, have called for a new investigation."

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "I'm a veteran from the US Army Engineer Corps, specializing in carpentry and masonry. I don't have a degree for anything related to skyscrapers, but just having a better understanding of construction materials than your average person is all I need to have in order to clearly see that those buildings did not just collapse into dust because of fire.

    It's obvious that a new investigation of this tragedy is warranted and long past due; it should be made completely up of people who are actually American citizens, not "dual" citizens of any kind.

    I've seen the rare footage clearly showing the computer-controlled explosions and seen video of eyewitness accounts on that day. I knew all along that three planes had gone down, and that one didn't make it [to its obvious target], and that, coincidentally, Building 7 (where the headquarters for the CIA, FBI, and others was located, coincidentally) had to be 'pulled' or destroyed because of 'fire'. Yea. Riiigghhht. Rudy Giuliani burying the bulk of the buildings' remains underground is also too much to believe happened. It's time for accountability.

    No more people in openly secret societies in our government. No more 'Signing statements,' destroying evidence, 'Patriot' Acts, SPP, and the gross misuse of the term 'Government Secrecy' are highly likely in-our-face cop outs for the people who are involved in all this mess." http://www.ae911truth.org

He spent the next four days searching through the rubble and nearby buildings for survivors.
  • Video interview with WeAreChangeUK 11/19/04: Regarding his observations at WTC 7, immediately prior to its collapse. "The Red Cross rep was like, he goes over and he says, 'Well, you got to stay behind this line because they're thinking about bringing a building down.' They didn't say what building. They just said bringing a building down. So, we're like, 'Ok, you know, we'll take their word for it. You know, we'll stay behind the line.'

    And he went over and he talked to one of the -- through all the commotion -- he goes over and he asked one of the Red Cross -- er, one of the firefighters what was going on.. I guess -- I don't know if he got an answer or not. He came back over with his hand over the radio and what sounded like a countdown. And at the last few seconds he took his hand off and you heard '3 - 2 - 1'. And he was just saying, 'Just run for your life! Just run for your life!'

    And then it was like another 2 - 3 seconds, you heard explosions, like BA-BOOM! It was like a distinct sound. It's not like when compression, like boom boom boom boom boom, like floors that were dropping and collapsing. This was BA-BOOM!, and like you felt a rumble in the ground, like almost like you wanted to grab onto something. That to me, I knew that was an explosion. There was no doubt in my mind. ... That was Building 7 that fell." http://www.youtube.com

  • Personal endorsement of a New Investigation into 9/11 as described in the New York City Ballot Initiative:

    "I endorse the NYC CAN campaign and support the need for a new, independent, investigation of the events and failures that lead up to the 9/11 attacks.

    The original 9/11 Commission inquiry became an exercise in bureaucratic ass-covering and obfuscation of accountability.

    I had no intention of joining the ranks of “whistle blowers”. In 2003, when I made my disclosure to the 9/11 commission regarding the existence of a pre 9/11 offensive counter-terrorism operation that had discovered several of the 9/11 terrorists a full year before the 9/11 attacks my intention was to simply tell the truth, and fulfill my oath of office.

    Unfortunately, this was a minority view.

    Instead of supporting the search for the truth, members of the Bush/Rumsfeld Department of Defense did everything within their power to destroy my 20 year career as a clandestine intelligence operative simply to try to discredit me and my disclosure.

    In 2006 I testified before Congress on the pre-9/11 issues regarding the systemic failures I was personally aware of – in both open and closed sessions – and yet nothing was ever done to correct these problems.

    The families and victims of the 9/11 attacks are owed a real accounting of why their government failed them. We all deserve answers.

    The full accounting has never been made. This accounting is long overdue. I hope the NYC CAN effort will result in a real, detailed, independent investigation that will reveal the full truth – whatever that truth may be." http://www.opednews.com
  • Testimony before the House Armed Services Committee 2/15/06: Regarding the Able Danger project - "... basic law enforcement investigative techniques, with 21st Century data mining and analytical tools ... resulted in the establishment of a new form of intelligence collection – and the identification of Mohammed Atta and several other of the 9/11 terrorists as having links to Al Qaeda leadership a full year in advance of the attacks. ...

    After contact by two separate members of the ABLE DANGER team, … the 9/11 [Commission] staff refused to perform any in-depth review or investigation of the issues that were identified to them. … It was their job to do a thorough investigation of these claims – to not simply dismiss them based on what many now believe was a "preconceived" conclusion to the 9/11 story they wished to tell. … I consider this a failure of the 9/11 staff – a failure that the 9/11 Commissioners themselves were victimized by – and continue to have perpetrated on them by the staff as is evidenced by their recent, groundless conclusion that ABLE DANGER’s findings were "urban legend". http://www.abledan

But I don't know what the bigger picture was of why you'd want to stop an operation going after the very target who attacked us, in advance, why you'd want to turn it off." at 3:00 into the video at http://video.google.com
  • Editor's note: The 9/11 Commission Report asserts that only three of the alleged hijackers were known to U.S. intelligence agencies prior to 9/11; Nawaf al-Hazmi, Salem al-Hazmi, and Khalid al-Mihdar. There is no mention in the Report that the names and photographs of alleged hijacker Marwan al-Shehhi and alleged ring-leader Mohamed Atta had been identified by the Department of Defense antiterrorist program known as Able Danger more than a year prior to 9/11 and that they were known to be affiliates of al-Qaida.

  • Essay Reopening the 9/11 Investigation 1/17/10:

    "In OpEd News.Com of January 8, 2010, 911 Widows strongly objected to the absence of any accountability for the 9/11 and Xmas Day terror attacks. Their position is that without personal accountability there will be no impetus to prevent future failures. The major issue they raise is: "The 9/11 Commissioners would not assign any accountability nor did they recommend that incompetent people be fired".

    The 9/11 Widows are on the right track, but don't have the full story because the 9/11 Commission didn't disclose it. The White House was the real problem. How do you fire the President and Vice- President, except at election time?After rejecting the new office of homeland security, the Vice-President was supposed to set up a defense against domestic attacks. Over a period of several months his project never got off the ground. All the discussion about sharing of information and connecting dots at lower levels had nothing to do with the 9/11 outcome. How could it -- neither the President nor the Vice-President ever accepted what was then the most advanced threat in U.S. history? ...

    True accountability for 9/11 should be shared by the President, the Vice President and their national security team. An extensive article on this entire topic (including the White House cover-up) is out for possible publication. The article documents that our government at the very highest level had reliable information on the approaching 9/11 attacks, but did not make an attempt to stop them. To this day we do not know why, although the article suggests a possible reason. The 9/11 investigation should be reopened, and only then will the 911 Widows find some peace of mind in their long quest for accountability." http://www.opednews.com/articles

    "I started my career as an Aerial Reconnaissance Photographer / Photo Lab Technician and some image interpreting experience. I later became a U.S. Air Force Combat Photographer / Photojournalist. During this time I did assignments throughout the Nellis/Tonopah Range sites which included the real Area 51 and it assets throughout the United States.

    From my experience, I know without a doubt that aircraft impacts could only have done critical, but survivable damage to the towers -- they were built specifically to survive such an impact. The fuel was expended during the initial 15-to-30 minutes after the crashes--you can tell from the bellowing smoke -- the flames were not hot enough to melt the superstructure (another design necessity).

Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers. However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."

  • Essay 8/7/06: "I began the investigation of 9/11 on 9/12/2001, because some of the planes were known Air Emergencies for nearly an hour. I began by going to the FAA, looked up the Chapter on Air Emergencies in the FAA Manual, and based on what was said there, I concluded that NORAD, and or the FAA had not followed the protocols. ...

    The Andrews AFB Mission Statement was listed as "The Highest State of Combat Readiness" in the Air National Guard. I book marked the page, and less than a week later the Andrews AFB site was changed, the Mission Statement page was no longer available for viewing. "They" had blocked access to it. A short time later the FAA manual changed as well, and access to the page on Air Emergences was blocked, and still is to this day. These 2 events made me very suspicious, and with further investigation my suspicions have not only not abated, they have increased to a point where I am no longer suspicious, I am convinced that 9/11 was an inside/outside job. ...

    On April 11, 2006 The Veterans for 911 Truth was created by people who met by chance at The Scholars for 911 Truth Forum. They are good people with something in common, they are people who are patriots, who are champions of truth and justice, who understand that what happened on 911, and what has ensued since, is a Coup d'Etat." http://www.911citizenscourt.com

    "In my opinion, the collapse of all three structures show a controlled demolition. I feel that a thorough investigation was not done by the 9/11 Commission. I have read numerous articles and spent many hours watching video on the building collapses as well as the Pentagon crash and the PA crash. There are many questions that have not been answered. As an American citizen, I feel that all the evidence for this date should be made public. Being an ex-member of the United States Air Force, I can understand that certain things should be classified, but our government uses this excuse way to much.

    "Whereas, we as military veterans have vowed to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; and

    Whereas, we as veterans are keenly aware that our political leaders do sometimes, in the name of 'national security', send the men and women of our armed forces to fight for causes not really vital to the 'national security;' and

    Whereas, we as veterans are also aware that our leaders have occasionally orchestrated 'false-flag' attacks to create pretexts for going to war; and

    Whereas, abundant evidence has come to light, some of it produced by our own members, suggesting that the 9/11 attacks may have been examples of such 'false-flag' attacks, orchestrated to provide pretexts for going to war; and

    Whereas, this evidence indicates that these attacks, which have been used to nullify parts of the US Constitution, appear to have been arranged by domestic terrorist and possibly outside agents, and we veterans have vowed to protect the Constitution and the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic; and

    Whereas, the official investigations, which stated that the attacks were carried out by Muslim terrorists, were all conducted by individuals employed by, or otherwise closely aligned with, the Bush-Cheney administration; ...

    Therefore, we, the undersigned members of Veterans for 9/11 Truth, call on President Obama and/or the US Congress to authorize a new, truly independent, investigation, complete with subpoena power, to discover and report to the American people what really happened."

    A huge body of physical evidence has been ignored, suppressed, and ridiculed by the media and by our Government. Why did WTC 7 collapse? It was never hit by an airplane and was apparently brought down by explosives. How could Al-Qaida terrorists have had access and time to plant bombs in a top secret installation? Why did the 9/11 Commission fail to seek the reason for the WTC 7 collapse?

    The more one studies the evidence, the more apparent it becomes that our Nation, our Bill of Rights, and our Constitution are in grave danger!" http://PatriotsQuestion911.com

  • Signatory: War Is Illegal Petition 12/07, which states:

    "Against a background of escalating ecological crises, and the fact that large parts of the world´s population are being exposed to extreme poverty, inhuman working conditions and increasing social tensions, the annual global military expenditure has risen to more than 1,000 billion dollars.

    The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalculable social and ecological consequences.

    Unequal distribution of global resources, increasingly controlled by large multinational companies, global debt policy and unfair international trading practices ultimately could not be maintained without military security. In many countries the military is used to repress critical opposition.

    The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 are increasingly used to justify systematic surveillance and the dismantling of constitutional rights. [Bold added for emphasis by Editor of this website.] Even European countries have helped to establish Guantanomo-like secret prisons, where torture in all probability takes place.

    Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.

    Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.

    Faced with the choice between a war, that according to some western leaders, will last for many years or a possible peaceful transformation we support the following demands: ...

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:
    "Being a civil engineer and understanding the laws of physics, I know that a building cannot fall at free fall speed without the floors already falling also giving no resistance. I wish our Congressmen were as smart, and also showed some backbone and got a truly independent investigation going. Also, this 911 truth movement has shown to me that our press is as every bit controlled and spits out as much propaganda as I thought Pravda did for the old Soviet Union. My eyes have been awakened to many things, and I have come to learn that we do not live in as free a country as I thought we did, and with the passage of the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, it has become even less so." http://www.ae911truth.org

    "On Behalf of the People of the United States of America, the undersigned Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and affiliates hereby petition for, and demand, a truly independent investigation with subpoena power in order to uncover the full truth surrounding the events of 9/11/01 - specifically the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers and Building 7. We believe that there is sufficient doubt about the official story and therefore that the 9/11 investigation must be re-opened and must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that may have been the actual cause behind the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7."http://www.ae911truth.org/joinus.php
  • Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories. It would have been the tallest building in 33 states. Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers. However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks." Watch the collapse video here. And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.

  • Signatory: War Is Illegal Petition 12/07, which states:

    "Against a background of escalating ecological crises, and the fact that large parts of the world´s population are being exposed to extreme poverty, inhuman working conditions and increasing social tensions, the annual global military expenditure has risen to more than 1,000 billion dollars.

    The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalculable social and ecological consequences.

    Unequal distribution of global resources, increasingly controlled by large multinational companies, global debt policy and unfair international trading practices ultimately could not be maintained without military security. In many countries the military is used to repress critical opposition.

    The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 are increasingly used to justify systematic surveillance and the dismantling of constitutional rights. [Bold added for emphasis by Editor of this website.] Even European countries have helped to establish Guantanomo-like secret prisons, where torture in all probability takes place.

    Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.

    Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.

    Faced with the choice between a war, that according to some western leaders, will last for many years or a possible peaceful transformation we support the following demands: ...

    International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. They are used as the central justification for the "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct. International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans, have called for a new investigation."

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "I have been researching the events of 9/11 intensely for about 2 months now. I have analyzed the events from 3 different perspectives.

    1. As a U.S. Navy fighter pilot, having served on alert on the pad at Key West, Florida. We could be in the air and at full after-burner speed in 5 minutes or less on course to an invading Cuban Mig-21.

    Where were the Air Force F-15s on 9/11? There was an abundance of time after each hijacking to intercept and possibly shoot down each airliner.

    2. As an airline pilot trained for hijackings in the 1970s when there were dozens of them, including aircraft of Eastern Airlines, I know that awareness of hijackings by the FAA and subsequently the pilots on alert, happens within 2-3 minutes of the event. Where were the F-15s?

    3. As an attorney, trained to gather and evaluate evidence, I know that the official 9/11 government reports are impossible to believe." http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Article The Portugal News 8/3/02: "A further question raised by the inquiry was why none of the pilots concerned had alerted ground control. It stated that all pilots are trained to punch a four-digit code into the flight control's transponder to warn ground control crews of a hijacking - but this did not happen.

    During the press conference Captain Hill maintained that the four airliners must have been choreographed by an Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS). This system can engage several aircraft simultaneously by knocking out their on-board flight controls. He said that all the evidence points to the fact that the pilots and their crews had not taken any evasive action to resist the supposed hijackers. They had not attempted any sudden changes in flight path or nose-dive procedures - which led him to believe that they had no control over their aircraft."http://www.prisonplanet.com

  • Article by Col Donn de Grand Pre: "The other [pilot], Kent Hill, who lives with his wife, Carol, on a farm close to mine, is an American Airlines captain assigned to the European route. He was a lifelong friend of "Chic" Burlingame, They were graduates of the Naval Academy and flew F-4 Phantoms in Vietnam. Both left the Navy 28 years ago and joined American Airlines. Both planned to retire in 2002. Chic was the captain of AA flight 77, a Boeing 757, which departed Washington Dulles for Los Angeles at 8: 10 am on 11 September, with 58 passengers and a crew of 6. Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon at 9:41 am.

    "We were totally trained on the old type of hijack," Capt Hill said, "where you treat the hijacker cordially, punch a 4-digit code into your transponder to alert ground control you're being hijacked, and then get him where he wants to go, set the plane safely on the ground and let them deal with it on the ground. However, this is a totally new situation... Not one of the planes alerted ground control that they were being hijacked." How come?

    "The fact is, all the transponders were turned off on the doomed flights virtually at the same time." Look at their departure times -- two from Logan (Boston), one from Newark, another from Dulles (Washington DC) -- all between 8 am and 8:15.

    "Shortly after climb-out to flight level, their transponders are de-activated.. (they are no longer a blip on the radar screens). This is something that really needs to be looked into. The only reason we turn them off is so they don't interfere with ground systems when we land."

    (Note: Transponders identify a particular aircraft in flight on the radar screens of FAA flight controllers located throughout the country. Various codes are punched into the transponder, one displaying, "I am being hijacked.") ...

    He is convinced none of the pilots had control of their aircraft when they were flown into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The question then becomes, who was really in control?

    "Even if I had a gun at my head, I'd never fly a plane into a building. I'd try to put it in anywhere -- a field or a river -- and I'd be scaring the hell out of them (the hijackers) by flying upside down first," Hill said.

    In fact, the pilot has the best weapon in his hand when threatened with imminent death by a hijacker, namely, the airplane." http://www.geocities.com/mknemesis/colonels.html

  • Letter to The Nation website 1/17/07:

    "I am an airline pilot, retired after years of flying heavy jets on international routes. During my training I reviewed reports and photographs of thousands of aircraft accidents. I watched live news footage from the Pentagon on 9/11. I recognized immediately that what I saw could not possibly have been an aircraft crash scene.

    Where did the energy of 200 tons of mass striking that building go? The roof fell downward when it should have been blown into the next state. It doesn't take a PhD to figure out what any high school physics student could. Nor does it take an airline pilot like myself to notice the minimal damage, lack of aircraft parts, bodies, cargo, baggage, etc. that should be spread out in a 360-degree pattern.

    Perhaps the most overlooked aspect of this scene is the U-shaped burn pattern, viewed from above, that extends through all five Pentagon segments and has two 90-degree turns. As a Vietnam Special Forces vet I'd suggest the possibility of faulty explosives that fizzled and burned rather than exploding." http://www.thenation.com/doc/20070205/letter
