"There cannot be any survivors; it just would be beyond comprehension."
-- Donald Rumsfeld, US Secretary of Defense, speaking of missing Pentagon
personnel on September 11, 2001 -- just nine hours after impact.
"And just as we may not rescue them from a fire, so may we
not rescue them from a collapse [of debris] or from water or from anything
that may destroy them."
June 23, 2002
-- The recent movie "Black Hawk Down (Leave No Man
Behind)" deals with an important lesson -- the military has two jobs.
The military must destroy the enemy's forces and they must ensure the survival
of their own. "Black Hawk Down (Leave No Man Behind)" dramatizes a
story of survival: the heroic efforts of soldiers who attempted to rescue
their fellows who were trapped behind enemy lines in Mogadishu, Somalia.
The rescuers themselves become trapped, and they, too, needed to be rescued.
For about 140 minutes, "Black Hawk Down (Leave No Man Behind)" deals with
how much soldiers -- from the generals down to the enlisted man -- care
about each other. We see soldiers risking their lives to get their
wounded buddies, risking grenades, risking machine gun fire, risking rockets,
risking belligerent mobs -- all to rescue other soldiers. We hear
dialogue that goes like this:
"No man gets left behind,"
"You all right?"
"No man gets left behind,"
"We won't leave you behind,"
"If he don't get to the hospital in 1/2 hour, he's in trouble!"
"No man gets left behind."
At one point, two soldiers are talking about a helicopter crash. The
dialogue goes something like this: "There can't be any survivors," says
the first man. The second replies: "We don't know that, we gotta go
back and look!"
At the conclusion of the movie, soldier hero Sgt. Hoot Gibson is asked why
he risks life and limb in these military actions: Is he a war addict?
"It's about the man next to you."
Camaraderie, being a team member -- that's what the US military is about.
Or is it?
What would you think of a military that refused to rescue its soldiers from
certain death -- even though those soldiers were within arm's reach, right
in the Pentagon office building?
What would you think of a military that publicly pretended rescue, but meanwhile
deceitfully ensured the deaths of its own soldiers?
What would you think of a military that gave away its rightful jurisdiction
over military matters to perfidious civilians, and stood by while the civilians
let US soldiers die?
Who would support such a military?
As you read this article, keep in mind that on September 11, the Chairman
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was General Henry Hugh Shelton. Shelton
is a former Commanding General of the 101 and 82nd Airborne Divisions.
He is a former Commanding General of the XVIII Airborne Corps, and a former
Commander in Chief of the Special Operations Command. It was Special
Operations that conducted the "Black Hawk Down (Leave No Man Behind)" mission
in Mogadishu, Somalia. (See Shelton's career highlights at:
There's what you need to know: On September 11, the top commander
of the entire US military machine was intimately familiar with aircraft,
aviation fuel fires, aircraft rescue, and the ideals depicted in "Black
Hawk Down (Leave No Man Behind)."
However, those who directed the 9-11 rescue at the Pentagon did these amazing
- They sprayed the aviation fuel fire with water. Every housewife
knows you don't spray water on a grease or oil fire; both military and civilian
aviation fire fighters know you don't spray water on an aviation fuel fire.
- They allowed the fire to spread until the upper floors of the Pentagon
collapsed, burying Army and Navy personnel in the debris and further hampering
- Once the upper floors collapsed, the directors of the rescue flouted
standard rescue procedures for collapsed buildings.
- While there should still have been hope of finding survivors alive,
they used a wrecking ball to demolish sections of the building still standing.
Many additional tons of debris crashed down upon the already buried victims,
almost certainly collapsing any spaces or voids which may have sheltering
victims in the original debris.
- When qualified emergency medical technicians arrived by helicopter
to rescue the victims, they were ordered to leave and forbidden from returning.
One wave of survivors were brought out, and then there were no more . . .
- One flimsy excuse after the other was used to stop the work and
delay rescue operations.
- Civilian rescuers worked long shifts and became exhausted with
wrongheaded methods. Meanwhile, thousands of able-bodied military
personnel at nearby bases -- including those specially trained in putting
out aviation fires -- sat and watched the drama on Tee Vee.
- Surviving military intelligence officers lost jurisdiction over
military intelligence documents and those documents were collected by civilians
not cleared to see them.
Meanwhile, the Pentagon front office made a media spectacular of the fire.
Donald Rumsfeld and other Pentagon officials wrung their hands and cried,
"How awful, how awful" for days, stoking up passions for a war.
Do I believe that the well-meaning, desperate, and exhausted rescuers we
saw on TV intended anything but the best? No. I believe the
people doing the work had the very best intentions and were trying to save
lives. But they were relying on the leadership to make decisions.
They naturally followed orders as they are trained to do. Among the
people I accuse are:
- Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at that time, Gen. Henry Hugh
- Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense,
- Paul Wolfowitz, Deputy Secretary of Defense,
- Rabbi Dov Zakheim, Undersecretary/Comptroller of DoD,
- Secretary of the Army Thomas E. White,
- Other commanders of the National Military Command Center,
- Other "John Does" -- persons whose names remain hidden to
the public at this time.

Millions Of Gallons Of Water Used
AVIATION FIRE CONTROL REQUIRES FOAM
Let us begin by accepting one of the Official Truths of 9-11: American Flight
77 crashed into the Pentagon, and exploding jet fuel caused an inferno.
The fire obviously threatened the lives of those still in the building,
and it threatened to spread. It had to be put out quickly.
Liquid petroleum fires present a special problem to firefighters.
Ordinarily, water is used to douse building fires. But liquid fuel
floats on the top of water, giving the fuel access to oxygen. Thus
water does not extinguish a liquid petroleum fire.
Special foams have been developed to extinguish liquid petroleum fires.
Those foams are mixtures that float on the surface of the fuel and cut off
the oxygen, suffocating the combustion.
If you want to know more about extinguishing fires, try:
If you want to learn about aircraft rescue procedure and the routine use
of foam, visit this page:
In the above pages, notice the emphasis on speed in fighting fires.
Aviation fire-and-rescue people have only about two minutes to rescue passengers
before it is too late to help. And foam is THE tool of choice because
it puts out liquid fuel fires efficiently.
If you go to the Aviation Fire Journal
you will see photos of special
foam-spraying trucks used at airports, and a photo of three firefighters
extinguishing an aircraft fire with foam.
MILITARY USES FOAMS ON JET FUEL FIRES
We have already seen from the above referenced Aviation Fire Journal webpage
that foam is used to fight fires at civilian airports, but now let's turn
our attention to what happens in military aviation. Visit the DoD's
Defense Visual Information Center at:
and put "rescue" in the DVIC search engine. On March 23, 2002, I did
that, and when I scrolled down, I found the following three photos:
Each of them shows foam being sprayed on aviation fuel fire. I cached
each photo. Here they are.

WATER, NOT FOAM, WAS USED
ON PENTAGON FLAMES
By now we have established that knowledgeable fire fighters never, never,
never, use water to fight petroleum fires. However, here is
"Outside, the Arlington County police and fire departments
arrived and started securing the area and pumping water on the blaze."
("September 11 at the Pentagon," American Forces Press Service, October
Look at this photo from the American Forces Information Service.
The caption reads:
"Firefighters work to put out the flames moments
after a hijacked jetliner crashed into the Pentagon at approximately 0930
on Sept. 11, 2001. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Jason Ingersoll)
What wrong with this picture? Well, we know military men are precise
about keeping time. What time did the Boeing 757 hit the Pentagon?
Depending on the report you read, the event occurred at 9:40 a.m. (Time
Magazine), 9:43 a.m. (CNN), or even 9:45 a.m. (Miami Herald).
It surely would take the Arlington Fire Department five or ten minutes to
arrive at the Pentagon and set up the hoses. That would suggest the
Marine's photo was taken somewhere between 09:45 to 9:55 a.m., fifteen minutes
later than he states.
It's an odd photo -- the much of the "water" being sprayed by the firetruck
appears to be white out. The jet originates from the lower left side
of the picture, to the left of the fire truck, and the water fans out broadly
but does not lose any of its opacity. But notice that the upper floors
had not yet collapsed at the time the photo was taken.
EFFECT OF USING WATER?
FIRE CONTINUES TO SPREAD
But what was the result of using water to extinguish a jet fuel fire?
Predictably, the fire continued to spread. Soon the upper floors and
the roof were involved, and they collapsed. We should be surprised?
The photo taken after the collapse was taken by Jason Ingersoll, the same
Marine who took the photo of the fire truck spraying water on the fire at
"0930." The caption on the photo taken after the collapse, however,
"The pentagon [sic] in flames just minutes after
a hijacked jetliner crashed into the building on Sept. 11, 2001. (U.S. Marine
Corps photo by Cpl. Jason Ingersoll) (Released)"
No, this second picture could not have been taken "just minutes" after impact.
According to photographic evidence the upper floors did not collapse immediately,
and surely the Marine photographer knew exactly when he took this photo.
Furthermore, a CNN 9-11 time line available on the Net states:
"10:10 a.m.: A portion of the Pentagon collapses."
So the second photo was taken approximately 30 minutes after the impact
event. Thirty minutes is not "just minutes" after impact.
Now let's return to the American Forces Press Service coverage:
"Fire continued to burn the Pentagon and
spread in unrenovated sections. Flames ignited core materials
in the layered roof and were particularly difficult to get at. Pools
of aviation fuel would ignite occasionally and create thick black smoke
over the building . . ."
"AT 6:00 p.m., with the building still on fire . . ."
("September 11 at the Pentagon," American Forces Press Service, October
AIRPORT FIRETRUCK USED WATER
DESPITE FAA REGULATIONS
We have just seen that military aviation firefighters are trained to use
foam on aviation fuel fires. Are civilian aviation firefighters dumb enough
to use water? No, not at all. FAA regulations require civilian
airports to have firetrucks equipped to spray foam, and just two years ago
the Detroit City Airport was cited by the FAA because it would not follow
According to newspaper reports, Detroit City Airport firefighters had been
asking airport fire department for more foam because their supplies were
low, but for weeks the firefighters received no response. Then, shortly
after midnight June 21, Secret Service agents notified City Airport firefighters
to expect First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton to arrive the next day on a
Lear jet. Mrs. Clinton would be in Detroit for a $1,000 a person fund-raiser
for New York Senate campaign.
The next day the firefighters got the 150 gallons of foam they had been
(Detroit News, "FAA criticizes City Airport for Violations," November
But look at this photo from the Military District of Washington's webpage,
The caption under the photo reads:
"Fire truck 345 from Metropolitan Washington
Airports Authority Fire Department throws a stream of water into the collapsed
point of impact as smoke billows from the Pentagon shortly after an airplane
slammed into the west side of the building."
Why is the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Fire Department spraying
water on the Pentagon fire, when FAA regulations require airport firefighting
trucks to use foam? It is inexplicable -- unless, of course, you consider
the entire "rescue" mosaic.
WAS THERE REALLY A JET FUEL FIRE?
This photo shows firefighters from the Alexandria Fire Department spraying
water on the debris.
Makes one wonder, doesn't it? Perhaps all these firefighters knew
what we don't -- maybe there was no aviation fuel in the Pentagon that day . . .
no aviation fuel means no airplane, no airplane means no truth in the Official
Story. That's one explanation.
MILITARY FIREFIGHTERS CLOSE TO PENTAGON
Andrews Air Force Base, home of Air Force One, is 9 1/2 miles from the Pentagon,
as the crow flies,. Bolling Air Force Base is 1 1/2 miles from the
Pentagon, as the crow flies. Quantico Marine Base (home of Marine
Helicopter Squadron One) is 23 miles from the Pentagon, as the crow flies.
MILITARY FIREFIGHTERS FAIL TO SHOW
There should have been no problem getting aviation fire fighters from Andrews,
Bolling or Quantico to the Pentagon, pronto, to put the fire out and rescue
their comrades. The soldiers in "Black Hawk Down (Leave No Man Behind)"
did not hesitate to crash through enemy lines, through crowds throwing grenades,
through machine gun fire, rocket launchers, armed militia, etc., to rescue
their comrades. The servicemen at Andrews, Bolling, or Quantico were
in friendly territory. All they had to do was travel a few miles along
the Beltway or Interstate 95.
So did the "leave no man behind" military show up to rescue their Pentagon
comrades? No, it didn't happen.
As the photo in the September 24, 2001, Business Week (pg. 47) shows, the
US military was organized enough to have soldiers drive an armored personnel
carrier (APC) down Wall Street in New York during the 9-11 crisis, but not
organized enough to send military aviation firefighters to the Pentagon.
On the other hand, let's not be too critical of the military response to
the fire. After all, the Marines did send a photographer.
PENTAGON WATCHED 9-11 ON TEE VEE
Let's take a step back and look at what was happening before disaster struck
the headquarters of the mightiest military force on God's Green Earth.
Let us rely on the DoD's own news service, the American Forces Press Service.
Surely AFPS had access and can give us the inside scoop. According
to AFPS, the morning of September 11 saw the folks at the Pentagon sitting
around watching the WTC towers burn on Tee Vee, courtesy of CNN.
When CNN announced the NYC strikes were an act of terrorism, did any of
the couch potatoes react? Did they say:
"You don't suppose they'll send planes
over here, do you? After all, those people are terrorists, and this
is the Pentagon. We'd better call Andrews Air Force Base and get some
air cover . . . ." ?
No, the Pentagon couch potatoes just "exchanged shocked glances . . ."
And presumably continued to watch the drama unfold on CNN. I wonder
if they were munching on donuts or nachos as they watched?
PENTAGON HERE! SEND CIVILIANS!"
BLAM! Flight 77 (allegedly) hits the Pentagon. How do the couch
potatoes respond? The American Forces Press Service report tells us:
"Outside, the Arlington County police and fire departments arrived and started
securing the area and pumping water on the blaze" but mentions not one word
about how the Arlington County Fire Department was alerted to the situation.
We can imagine General Couch Potato dialing 911:
"Hello? 911? This is the
Pentagon. We're sitting around watching Tee Vee and just found out
from CNN that half of our building just got blown away, and hey, there's
a fire . . . can y'all send a few trucks over? Yeah.
Its an aviation fuel fire, so make sure to spray water on it, orright?"
Now some may point out that the Arlington County Fire Department has an
agreement with the Pentagon to handle fire emergencies (SOP#OPS EMS 10).
Obviously this agreement was made to handle everyday fires started by exploding
Pentagon coffee pots, or file cabinet fires. It is ridiculous to suggest
the Pentagon had this agreement to handle acts of war on the Pentagon.
And Pentagon personnel knew that the September 11 events were acts of war.
They were watching CNN, and CNN had just told them.
No, the couch potatoes should have ordered air cover over DC when the first
news from New York broke. And failing that, once the 9:40 a.m. (or
9:43, or 9:45) event occurred, the military should immediately have ordered
military aviation firefighters to put out the blaze.
Local civilian fire departments handle ordinary building fires. They
don't handle aviation fuel fires. Local fire stations should not have
been on the scene that day. Their presence acted as a distraction.
Their presence distracted attention from the simple fact that no one in
the Pentagon was taking proper measures to put the fire out.
RUMSFELD, TOP BRASS
KNEW WHAT WAS HAPPENING
It might be comforting to think that Rumsfeld, Shelton, and the top brass
were all out playing golf that day and not on hand to see what was going
on, but that was not true. The American Forces Press Service tells
the story as if these were heroic lads:
"One area never closed: the National
Military Command Center. Rumsfeld and the senior leadership repaired
to the facility and monitored DoD activities worldwide. At one point,
smoke grew so thick in the faculty that there was talk of evacuating, but
Rumsfeld scotched it."
What is the National Military Command Center, mentioned above? See
So the top commanders of each of the services were on site. Each of
the services uses aviators, each of the commanders HAD to know water does
not extinguish aviation fuel fires, yet all of them let the farce continue.
FIRE AS A MEDIA SPECTACULAR
Had the fire been put out quickly with foam, Rumsfeld would have lost valuable
public relations mileage. The "stubborn" fire at the Pentagon was
just one facet of a campaign designed to whip the American pubic and military
into a bloodlust for a war on Islam. From a propaganda viewpoint, the
higher the casualty list, the better.
The American Forces Information Service describe the press gala on September
11 this way:
"Across Washington Boulevard from
the Pentagon, the press set up shop at the navy Annex Exchange gas station
and broadcast the fire fighting activities. With Correspondents' Corridor
closed, reporters dictated stories using cell phones. TV trucks with
antennae showed up and eased some of the communications problems.
"At 6:00 p.m, with the building still
on fire, Pentagon officials announced Rumsfeld would have a press conference
in the Pentagon. Buses arrived at the gas station to take reporters,
photographers and videographers to the Pentagon.
"Inside the River Entrance of the building
the smoke hit like a physical force. People could not see to the end
of the hallways and it was tough to breathe. The smell of burning
insulation and electrical wiring permeated the briefing studio.
"As Rumsfeld, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs
of Staff Army Gen. Henry Shelton, Senate Armed Services Committee chairman
Sen. Carl Levin, ranking minority member Sen. John Warner, and Army Secretary
Thomas White came into the studio, one side of the building was still on
"Rumsfeld expressed his sorrow over the loss of life at the building . . ."
Do you believe Rumsfeld felt any grief over those he was doing nothing to
Missing from the media spectacular was THE key 9-11 player: the commander
of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), Ralph E. Eberhart;
as commander of NORAD, it was Eberhart's job to keep American skies safe.
But Rumsfeld & Company kept Eberhart safely tucked away. At 6:42
p.m. on September 11 Donald Rumsfeld held a national press conference.
Eberhart did not even show up then.
RUMSFELD' CRYSTAL BALL:
"THERE CANNOT BE ANY SURVIVORS"
Emergency rescue experts say earthquake victims who are buried in debris
can survive up to 12 days (more below.) Rumsfeld held his September
11 press conference approximately nine hours after impact. He made
"There cannot be any survivors;
it just would be beyond comprehension."
How could Rumsfeld KNOW no more survivors would be found in the Pentagon
debris, when earthquake experts give victims a 12-day chance of survival?
At this point, the Pentagon victims had only been buried nine hours.
Why the hurry to pronounce them all dead?
Gen. Shelton was at Rumsfeld's side during this press conference.
He of course uttered pious statements about "barbaric terrorism carried
out by fanatics against both civilians and military people, acts that have
killed and maimed many innocent and decent citizens our country."
Oddly, however, Mr. Derring-do Shelton did not say a word about the rescue
efforts which were murdering survivors.
"I will not tell you up front,
I have no intentions of discussing today what comes next, but make no mistake
about it, your armed forces are ready."
Yes, our armed forces were ready, all right, Mr. Rescue Shelton. Ready
to let civilian firemen squirt water on an aviation fuel fire while men
died under the debris. And you stood by and watched . . .
you watched it going on for days . . .
Aside from Rumsfeld, who spoke about the rescue efforts? Sen. Carl
Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, who uttered this
inanity: "Our intense focus on recovery and helping the injured and the
families of those who were killed is matched only by . . .
[rah, rah, war, war ] . . ."
RUMSFELD'S PREDICTIONS COME TRUE
No survivors were found on September 12 and 13, or on any other day thereafter,
just like Rumsfeld predicted.
"As of Thursday morning [September
13], about 70 bodies had been removed from the buckled section of the Pentagon
as search-and-rescue workers toiled around the clock with little hope of
finding more survivors. Anyone who might have survived the initial
impact and collapse could not have survived the fire that followed."
("Pentagon Says About 190 People Dead," September 13, by Robert Burns, AP
Military Writer, Associated Press)
Remember heat travels UP, not down. Those still buried in the rubble
may well have been protected from the fire above them.
On September 14, the Pentagon announced 126 DoD personnel were dead.
On September 15, the figure was lowered to 124 because two people had been
double-counted. On October 11, 2001, when President Bush spoke at
a Pentagon memorial service, he confirmed 125 DoD deaths. ("Memorial
Service Honors Pentagon Victims," American Forces Information Service, Oct.
Remember Rumsfeld's words on September 11:
"There cannot be
any survivors; it just would be beyond comprehension."
So Rumsfeld's predictions came true. After the first round of victims
escaped, there were no more survivors . . . He's quite
a clairvoyant, isn't he? What are the statistical chances of Rumsfeld
being 100% right in circumstances like those?
EMERGENCY MEDICAL HELP
TOLD TO GET OUT AND STAY OUT
We all know that when a person is seriously ill or injured, he must be given
medical attention as soon as possible. Delay may cost the victim's
life. That's why we have ambulances, and that's why ambulances have
On September 11, three members of a Washington Hospital Center MedStar Transport
helicopter team responded to the emergency at the Pentagon. Several
days later, (September 14) they were interviewed by Kathy Fowler of WJLA-TV
(ABC-Channel 7) in the Washington, DC area. Luckily, I have a copy
of that interview.
The MedStar pilot and crew were among the very first at the scene, according
to the WJLA report. When they arrived, they were told that another
suicide plane was on the way and they should LEAVE.
How does that comport with the "Black Hawk Down (Leave No Man Behind)" philosophy?
Here we have civilians showing up to perform rescues and the military (or
whoever was controlling the Pentagon scene then) ordering them to abandon
the victims on the pretext of an unconfirmed and unfounded report.
The MedStar people, to their eternal credit, refused to leave. By
the time they did, they had helped eight victims and were taking another
to the hospital. Speaking of the rescued victim, one of the crew told
Fowler on camera:
"She hugged me three
times and said thank you for saving my life."
Then Fowler told the audience:
"After the crew transferred
one patient back to the Washington Hospital Center, they were not allowed
to go back because of the restricted air space."
So what we have is this: MedStar arrived and was immediately ordered to
leave. They refused, rescued eight people, took one to the hospital,
and were prevented from coming back.
Now who would prohibit a MedStar helicopter to return to the scene of a
disaster and take victims to the hospital? Those MedStar helicopters
should have been given military escorts to and from the disaster site.
What could be more important than immediate professional medical care for
the 9-11 victims?
AIR SPACE NOT TOO RESTRICTED
Despite what the MedStar people were told, the air space was not quite as
restricted as the Pentagon indicated. Here is a photo of a military
helicopter flying over the crash site conducting "aerial survey." If the
US military could conduct surveillance over the crash site, it surely could
have seen to it that the MedStar helicopters were safely escorted to and
This photo shows what appears to be the same chopper, now described as an
Army "Red Cross" helicopter.
It is of utmost importance that the injured should be moved only by trained
people. Improper handling of an injured person can result in his death
or permanent paralysis. In this photo, we see that the Pentagon allowed
the Park Police helicopter to land and do "rescue" work. The Park
Police are part of the National Park Service. They are not trained
emergency medical people. Nor is the helicopter marked as an emergency
Why did they stop MedStar's trained professionals but allow National Park
Service employees to handle the injured? Something stinks here.
Perhaps you think that the MedStar team was chased away because those in
charge of the crash site were concerned for the safety of civilians.
If so, recall that civilian firemen were present at the scene, using water
on a petroleum-fueled fire when they should have been using foam.
They were not chased away.
Some, upon learning qualified emergency medical rescue people were turned
away from the Pentagon disaster site, may insist there "must" have been
a good reason for keeping them out. But a tree is judged by the fruit
that it bears. So let's look at the fruit.
AREA HOSPITALS SURPRISED BY
LOW NUMBER OF SURVIVING VICTIMS
Area hospitals geared up to handle a large number of injured survivors,
and were most surprised when few showed up.
"But only about 80
people were treated at area hospitals, according to Walter Reed officials.
At Virginia Hospital Center in nearby Arlington, over 100 nurses and 50
doctors were called in -- 16 times the normal emergency staffing.
They treated 44 victims in the first 24 hours, more than any other hospital
in the region. But it was a mere trickle compared with what they expected.
Inova Alexandria Hospital treated just 22 victims, 16 of whom were released
Tuesday. Six patients were helicoptered from the Pentagon to Washington
Hospital Center. 'We got the first wave, says Marion Jordan, director
of the hospital's renowned burn unit. 'After than, nothing.'
In the end, his trauma teams treated about as many people as they would
from a large house fire." (US News & World Report, Sept. 14, 2001, pg.
"In the end, his
trauma teams [at the nearby Washington Hospital Center] treated about as
many people as they would from a large house fire."
What's wrong with this picture? Then, later on the same page:
survivors Navy Lt. Charles McGill, 26, who had worked at the Pentagon
for just four weeks, joined a group of people who calmly evacuated the massive
building, then made his way around the perimeter to where dark, heavy smoke
poured out. He lined up to be a stretcher-bearer. He and his
fellow volunteers, four to a board, were told that during these first hours
only survivors would be moved. 'In three hours, no one came out.'" (US news
& World Report, Sept. 14, 2001, pg. 51.)
Repeat: Navy Lt. Charles McGill said:
"In three hours,
no one came out."
Then, on the next page:
"At the Pentagon,
two trauma teams remain on the scene in two triage tents, with the workers
replaced every eight hours. Lt. Col. James Goff, assistant chief of
surgery at Walter Reed, says that no survivors have been removed from the
building since the early hours Tuesday." (US News and World Report,
September 14, 2001, Pg. 52.)
have been removed from the building since the early hours Tuesday."
ARMY "SUPPORTS" FBI AND FIRE DEPARTMENT
During Donald Rumsfeld's September 11 press conference, Secretary of the
Army Thomas E. White spoke gobblegook, thus:
it's fair to say at this point that the fire is contained, and will shortly,
if not already, be sufficiently controlled to allow entry into the building.
That entry will be supervised by the FBI, who are in charge of the site,
assisted by the fire departments that are present. We, on the Army
side, will support them as they go in the building and search for casualties
and bring them out . . ." (
What was White talking about? Who is the "them" White is referring
" . . .
support them as they go in the building and search for casualties and bring
them out . . ." ?
Obviously he was talking about FBI agents. The FBI is going to rescue
Pentagon personnel! But FBI agents are not medically trained, and
they are not rescuers. They are assassins. Look at what they did to
Melissa Morrison, a 7-year-old Davidian child, when they "rescued" her in
Waco nine years ago:
Why would the Army transfer the rescue of Army personnel over to the FBI?
Why weren't soldiers and Army medics rescuing other soldiers?
FBI LOOKING FOR OSAMA'S FINGERPRINTS?
Shortly after the 9:40 a.m. event, it was announced that the explosion and
fire was caused by American Airlines Flight 77, which had been commandeered
by terrorists and purposely flown into the Pentagon -- conveniently missing
the offices of Rumsfeld and the Joint Chiefs, of course. Putting out
the fire and rescuing the buried victims should have been the first order
of business. Surely the FBI did not need to take control over the
site to look for fingerprints on the fuselage or other "clues." So why did
the FBI have control of the site?
BLACK HAWK DOWN MEETS PENTAGON DOWN
We already know that when the 9-11 terror events were taking place, Gen.
Shelton was out of the country. Surely he was informed by phone as
the events were unfolding in the US. Surely he was in a position to
issue commands to the armed forces:
are our people? Buried? The fire is still burning? What
the Sam Hill is going on? Put that fire out, pronto, you know how
to do it, and get our people out. Leave no man behind!"
By the time Rumsfeld gave his 6:42 press conference, Leave-No-Man-Behind
Shelton was by Rumsfeld's and White's side, silent, when Rumsfeld told the
world the FBI had "secured" the war zone and was supervising the [non-]
rescue. Remember, Shelton was a former commander of Special Operations
Command, the "Black Hawk Down" people who performed so bravely in Mogadishu.
Of course Shelton knew about the Mogadishu rescue. The story first appeared
as a series written by Mark Bowden, and ran in the Philadelphia Enquirer,
in 1997. It was then published as a book. Here is what Leave-No-Man-Behind
Shelton said to the author:
"Your account of the events in Mogadishu on October 3, 1993 is an inspirational
and evocative retelling of one of the most significant military operations
of the past 10 years. Though there is heroism and professionalism aplenty,
you also bring out the errors and missed opportunities that contributed
to the unfortunate outcome of the mission. Both senior leaders and young
soldiers can learn much from this compelling story. . . .
Black Hawk Down will occupy an honored place in my personal library."
Note that Shelton does not commend Bowden for the accuracy of his accounting
or call Bowden's story "true to history."
You can rest assured Mr. Rescue Shelton and all the big poohbahs at Rumsfeld's
9-11 press conference saw the movie, too. Eight hundred top Pentagon
officials and military brass attended its Washington, DC premier.
It's hard to imagine the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff missed that
event. This from The Nation, February 25, 2002:
"The military was so helpful in making 'Black Hawk Down' that it deserves
a production credit. After vetting the script, the Pentagon sent to
Morocco (the shooting site) two C-5 transports carrying eight helicopters
and more than 100 soldiers from the same Ranger company that fought in the
Somalia raid depicted in the movie. US Army pilots flew the helicopters
in the movie's battle scenes, and two retired soldiers who fought in the
raid served as advisers to director Ridley Scott. And the Pentagon
has been pleased with the result. 'Powerful,' Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld called it after attending the Washington Premier along with 800
other top officials and brass . . ." ("Black Hawk Downer,"
by Michael Massing, The Nation, February 25, 2002, pg. 5.)
According to an article in Counterpunch (March 1, 2002), some "Black Hawk
Down (Leave No Man Behind)" actors were given Army Ranger Orientation Training
at Fort Benning. ("An Actor Speaks Out -- What's Wrong With Black
Hawk Down," Counterpunch, March 1, 2002.)
Then the director, Ridley Scott, rushed the film's release after 9-11 (the
movie was released on January 18, 2002); Scott earned a Pentagon commendation
for doing so. ("Black Hawk Down," Worker's World, January 31,
But what happened on September 11 at the Pentagon is in direct opposition
to the heroism depicted in the movie. "Black Hawk Down (Leave No Man
Behind)" is obviously what we're supposed to believe -- that the lives of
the grunt soldiers are precious to the commanders of the US military.
But the observable truth, the truth that can be documented, is just the
Shelton, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Zakheim and the National Military Command
Center treated the missing Pentagon personnel as dust motes.
"Black Hawk Down (Leave No Man Behind)" is obviously a piece of embroidery.
The Pentagon sham rescue is verifiable fact.
FIRE USED AS EXCUSE TO STALL RESCUE
"Search and rescue operations are continuing, but they are stymied by at
least two fires on either side of the impact area. Firefighters are
directing hoses at the flames -- manifested by great plumes of bitter smoke
-- from the center courtyard of the Pentagon." ("No Hope of survivors
in Pentagon Attack," United Press International, September 12, 2001.)
Notice this observation: "Search and rescue operations are continuing, but
they are stymied by at least two fires . . ." Of course
the fires "stymied" the rescue. So why didn't they use foam?
Two and three days after the crash, fire was still a problem at the Pentagon.
FIRE USED TO EXPLAIN DEATHS
"The Pentagon said Wednesday no more survivors are expected to be pulled
from the tons of rubble and stubborn fires created by the terrorist attack
that collapsed a portion of the building.
"'The area of the Pentagon where the aircraft struck and burned sustained
catastrophic damage. Anyone who might have survived the initial impact
and collapse would not have survived the fire that followed,' the Defense
Department said in a written statement." ("Officials say no more survivors
expected to be found at Pentagon; smoke lingers," Associated Press, April
FIRE, SHE KEEP ON BURNIN' . . .
So Rumsfeld and Company permitted water to be sprayed on a petroleum fuel
fire, allowed more of the building to become involved in the fire, watched
the upper floors collapse, ordered emergency medical help off the scene
and failed to order military aviation firefighters to the scene. Now
let's have a closer look at the progress of the fire/media event.
On September 12, we get these reports:
"Fire fighters using water cannons continued to douse the charred building
from either side of the impact area." ("Officials say no more survivors
expected to be found at Pentagon; smoke lingers," Associated Press, September
12, 2001, http://www.public-action.com/911/rescue/obq-ap-09-12-2001
"Smoke from the blackened concrete structure drifted over Washington and
a stubborn roof fire continued to burn more than 24 hours after a high-jacked
fuel-laden airline slammed into a corner of the five-sided building on Tuesday
morning." ("Pentagon Reopens, Death Toll Uncertain," Reuters, September
12, 2001; http://www.public-action.com/911/rescue/obq-reuters-09-12-2001
"The damage to the Pentagon was extensive, compounded by smoke and water
damage from tenacious fires that burned for a day and a half after the attack."
("Pentagon Toll at 190," New York Times, Sept. 14, 2001,
"Late Thursday, rescuers worked to shore up unsteady parts of the building
but flames erupted. The flare-up sent black smoke billowing hundreds
of feet into the air over Washington." ("Flight Data, Cockpit Voice
Recorders Found in Pentagon Wreckage," FoxNews, September 14, 2001,
Late Thursday, and flames were still erupting -- that is almost 60 hours
after impact, folks. How many building fires you've ever heard of
last 60 hours?
MILLIONS OF GALLONS OF WATER USED
So much water had been poured into the building, the Pentagon later hired
Munters Moisture Control Services to help get rid of it.
"'Millions of gallons of water flowed throughout the building after the
attack,' said Joe Kelley, Munters district manager in the Washington DC
area. In some places water was 18 inches deep on the floors."

RESCUE FROM COLLAPSED BUILDINGS
Now let's turn our attention to the subject of rescuing people trapped in
collapsed buildings. The Emergency Response & Research Institute
(ERRI) is a crisis, conflict and emergency services news and resource center.
It has won awards from a variety of paramedic, security, and law enforcement
organizations. The ERRI homepage is here:
You can see the awards they have received from police and emergency rescue
Now let's visit the ERRI page that deals with rescues from collapsed buildings.
Study these pages. This is how the pros do it when they want to save
lives. The ERRI will be our standard for measuring the Pentagon [non-]
EARTHQUAKE VICTIMS CAN LIVE
UP TO 12 DAYS IN RUBBLE
The Emergency Response & Research Institute tells rescuers that:
" . . . you should remain aware of the fact that people have
been successfully rescued alive after as much as twelve (12) days . . .
buried in the rubble of an earthquake . . . In the March,
1992 Turkish earthquake, a 22 year old nurse was pulled from beneath a building
collapse after eight days. She was also quoted as saying that she had been
'talking with her two friends,' who were also buried, for several days after
the collapse . . . until she 'didn't hear them anymore.'
The thought of someone remaining buried alive for several days should be
enough motivation for most rescuers to continue with their efforts until
every possible hope has been exhausted."
" . . . you should remain aware of the fact that people have
been successfully rescued alive after as much as twelve (12) days . . ."
Yet here is Rumsfeld declaring the 9-11 victims dead after nine hours . . .
"There cannot be any survivors; it just would be beyond comprehension."
Rumsfeld's "it's all hopeless" statement was pulled out of thin air.
He could not possibly have known whether the buried victims were alive or
Leadership drives men to extraordinary effort or paralyzes them with apathy.
Rumsfeld's words seem designed to discourage any heroic effort.
WRECKAGE MUST BE REMOVED VERTICALLY
According to the ERRI webpage, debris from a collapsed building MUST BE
"Most rescue experts agree that building collapse extrication must be a
process of vertical removal, rather than horizontal movement or reduction.
The safest way to remove debris from someone that is buried should involve
carefully lifting the debris from above the victim and continually "shoring"
the sides of the entrance hole or excavation to ensure against additional
collapse. This is a method that is consistent with common practices used
for 'trench rescue'."
UNSTABLE SECTIONS OF BUILDING
MUST BE SHORED
"In the case of building collapses, the magnitude of the shoring efforts
and the type of equipment necessary to perform the rescue may be very different
from normal extrication . . .
"The importance of careful overhead lifting of debris, rather than vertical
movement, can not be emphasized enough. As many as one third of all building
collapse victims that are rescued are found in spaces created by the way
that building materials generally fall. Most of the collapse configurations
that occur (lean-to, A-Frame, tent, pancake) create 'voids' in which people
may be trapped and remain alive. Vertical movement of debris will normally
further collapse the sides of these 'protective spaces' and can result in
additional deaths of those that might have been rescued."
CRANES MUST BE AVAILABLE
"In order to facilitate vertical removal of debris, it may be essential
to quickly locate and utilize various types of 'cranes' and other types
of 'overhead lift' capabilities. It is strongly suggested that every rescue
system have previous knowledge of and training for the use of heavy construction
equipment. Emergency dispatchers should have access to a list of construction
companies and other businesses that could provide this type of equipment
on a 24 hour a day seven day a week basis."
CRANES ON SITE SEPTEMBER 12, 13
This NPR photo shows two large cranes on the site on September 12, but there
is no sign that the debris is being lifted.
What a photo opportunity this vertical lifting rescue operation would make:
Cranes lifting the debris from the top, layer by layer, while rescue workers
did whatever shoring work was necessary along the adjacent areas.
The nation would be watching, breathless, glued to the TV screen, waiting
for news of survivors.
Look at this photo, taken on September 13, 2001, showing the cranes
in front of the Pentagon debris.
The caption under the photo reads "Recovery efforts continue Sept. 13, 2001 . . ."
Look at the wreckage of the roof, and compare what you see here with what
was visible the previous day, September 12. It appears that no vertical
lifting had been done from 12 to September 13. The collapsed roof line appears
How long would it have taken those cranes to lift the debris? The
Pentagon is five stories high with a mezzanine and basement -- it is not
one of the World Trade Center Towers. The hole made in the building
by whatever force was just 70 feet across. (US News & World Report,
December 10, 2001, pg. 31, http://www.public-action.com/911/usn011210-1.jpg
That was not a massive job. Moreover, the Washington DC area is overburdened
with construction companies equipped with cranes; the US military has at
its command air transport planes and helicopters capable of moving heavy
equipment from any part of the country or the world. Lifting off the
debris vertically would have been no problem.
WRECKING BALL USED
INSTEAD OF VERTICAL LIFTING AND SHORING
Instead of using the cranes at the site for lifting the debris off vertically,
the cranes at the site on September 12 and 13 were apparently used to swing
a wrecking ball into the portions of the building still standing, to demolish
those sections instead of shoring them up.
That, along with spraying an (alleged) aviation fuel fire with water, was
a recipe for murder. The increased weight of new debris torn from the
damaged building by the wrecking ball must have collapsed any voids in the
original debris that may have been sheltering victims. The result
could only have crushed the victims to death as they awaited rescue.
MURDEROUS USE OF WRECKING BALL
"Rescue teams planned to use a wrecking ball in the collapsed area to clear
away unstable rubble . . ." ("No Hope of Survivors in
Pentagon Attack," September 12, 2001, United Press International.
" . . . By evening [Wednesday, September 12] crews had started
tearing down unstable parts of the building to continue their search.
They hoped to have enough demolition work done by morning to enter the impact
area," (Pentagon Says About 190 People Dead," Associated Press, September
13, 2001; http://www.public-action.com/911/rescue/obq-ap-09-13-2001
"Rescue teams were preparing to use a large wrecking ball on the collapsed
section to clear away unstable ruble so that four special urban search and
rescue teams of about 60 specialists each could get access to damaged nearby
"Rescuers probed as far as they could but 'obviously in the collapsed areas,
that will have to take place a later time, after we have made the building
safe,' Plaugher [Arlington Country Fire Chief] said." (Reuters, "Pentagon
Reopens, Death Toll Uncertain," Sept. 12, 2001;
"Crews began removing victims' remains Wednesday afternoon but there was
no word on how many bodies were recovered. By evening, crews had started
tearing down unstable parts of the building to continue their search. They
hoped to have enough demolition work done by morning to enter the impact
area . . .
"Authorities did not rule out finding people in adjacent areas after a wrecking
ball could be used to clear unstable debris, but they did not appear confident
of that possibility . . . Pentagon officials acknowledged
the prospects of finding anyone alive was extremely remote." (Pentagon
Says About 190 People Dead," September 13, AP,
But of course "authorities" were not "confident" of finding people alive:
they were doing everything wrong to ensure they died. They might as
well have used a flame-thrower to relieve a toothache, or a steam shovel
to perform an appendectomy.
"And just as we may not rescue them from a fire, so may we not rescue them
from a collapse [of debris] or from water or from anything that may destroy
ONE EXCUSE AFTER ANOTHER TO STALL RESCUE
One excuse after another interrupted rescue operations.
On September 13, Thursday, 2001, a Washington area radio station, WGMS-FM,
broadcasted an interview with a Fairfax County Fire and Rescue worker, who
said all rescue operations had been suspended, due to a "credible" terrorist
Think about it. On September 13, the US military had complete control
of the perimeter of the Pentagon. Air space was still closed.
How could any terrorist threat be "credible" under those circumstances?
This report from the New York Times corroborated the WGMS report:
"By late afternoon, firefighters and rescue workers had so far managed to
remove only 70 bodies from the building, their work hampered first by smoke
and fire, then by unstable debris and another tense, lengthy evacuation
Thursday morning, this time because of a bomb threat.
"Firefighters who had been working around-the-clock shifts recounted how
their desperate efforts had been stymied from the start by repeated evacuations,
including some in the first frantic hours on Tuesday when authorities believed
a second attack was imminent.
'''We were there about 14 hours straight, battling smoke in the dark.
But the most frustrating thing was we had to keep dropping our gear and
running for our lives when we wanted to stay and save other lives,' said
Andrea Kaiser, a firefighter from Arlington County." ("Pentagon toll
at 190," New York Times, September 14, 2001,
"Capt. Robert F. Wirtz, also of the Arlington County Fire Department, said
the military authorities had twice warned that radar stations had detected
airplanes headed toward the Pentagon, forcing rescuers to drop their hoses
and axes and race from the building, raising the question of whether other
victims could have been saved in early hours." (New York Times, "Pentagon
toll at 190," September 14, 2001, URL above.)
Needless to say, every alarm was a false alarm. Every one.
SIX DAYS LATER, "STABILIZATION" CONTINUES
This from an Associated Press report of September 17, 2001:
"Recovery of the 188 victims of the terrorist attack on the Pentagon neared
the halfway point Monday as officials began relieving exhausted search and
rescue crews . . . Teams from Fairfax County, Va., and Montgomery
County, Md., first on the scene after the hijacked airliner crashed Sept.
11, were being replaced by a search and rescue unit from New Mexico . .
. 'Certainly it takes a toll on the men and workers in there,' said Tom
Carr, leader of the Montgomery County task force. 'We have to admit that.'
"But Carr described the rotation of search crews as standard practice for
a prolonged effort like this. He said the reduction in the number of crews
at the Pentagon of four to three indicates that work to stabilize the damaged
building is nearly complete."
Notice the numbers of rescuers were being REDUCED, on or before Day Six,
September 17, 2001.
"Recovery of the bodies is expected to take much longer. Pentagon officials
said the remains of 88 victims had been removed by Sunday. Much of the recovery
effort overnight was concentrated in the impact area where the roof of the
Pentagon's outer ring collapsed." ("Exhausted rescue teams relieved
at Pentagon," September 17, 2001,
So here we are, six days after the disaster, and they have just started
"concentrating" on the roof? WHAT?? Have a look at the NPR photo
again. On September 12, the roof was within easy reach of the cranes.
"'We've been finding bodies throughout the night,' said Arlington County
fire battalion chief Jim Bonzano. He estimated it will take another 10 days
to two weeks to complete the recovery effort." ("Exhausted rescue
teams relieved at Pentagon," Associated Press, September 17, 2001,
Once again: The Pentagon was just five stories high, and the hole left by
whatever happened on September 11 was 70 feet across. But we've just
read that it's going to take 16 to 20 days for the world's mightiest miliary
force with the most sophisticated and powerful equipment at its fingertips
to recover the victims?
Notice that throughout this AP article, the CIVILIAN rescue people are quoted.
The rescue efforts at the Pentagon should have been a military effort from
Day One. After all, the 9-11 attack was an "act of war," was it not?
CIVILIAN RESCUE WORKERS EXHAUSTED
Let me repeat one sentence from the September 14 New York Times article
quoted above. A civilian Arlington County firefighter said of the
time she and her fellows spent at the scene:
"'We were there about 14 hours straight . . .'" (
Not only is the Pentagon close to Andrews and Bolling Air Force Bases, the
Quantico Marine Base, but it is also minutes away from the Ft. Belvoir and
Ft. Myer Army bases. The Pentagon had at its command thousands of
Why were civilians working 14-hour shifts?
HOW THINGS SHOULD HAVE BEEN
For a remarkably contrasting incident, let's turn our attention to President
Kennedy's Inauguration Day, 1961:
"Early on the morning of January 20, 1961, Washington lay buried beneath
half a foot of freshly fallen snow . . . Throughout the region,
schools, businesses, and factories were shut down, and airports diverted
inbound flights . . .
"By daybreak, the military began their takeover. From Fort Belvoir,
a heavy armored division of more than a hundred snowplows, front-loaders,
dump trucks, and road graders crossed into the city to attack the ice and
heavy drifts . . ." (Body of Secrets, James
Bamford, Doubleday, 2001, pg. 64.)
If Fort Belvoir could turn out vehicles to help clear the snow on Inauguration
Day, what happened to its public spirit on September 11, 2001? If
rapid mobilization and friendly occupation was no problem in a 1961 snowstorm,
why was it a problem on a fine September day in 2001?
ARRIVAL OF THE SODA POP BRIGADE
Instead of sending in real help -- trained aviation fire fighters and disciplined
men trained to work with heavy equipment in tightly coordinated teams --
the military sent soda pop and other sundries to the (civilian) rescuers.
The soda pop was provided by the Army and Air Force Exchange Service, thus:
"Mobilizing two 45-foot trailers from its Newport News, Va., distribution
center, AAFES has established a field-style exchange store that provides
rescue workers with free towels, bottled water, soft drinks, snacks, lip
balm, T-shirts, socks and other items. The facility is operating around
"'This is just wonderful, just fantastic, how AAFES is supporting the soldier,'
said Staff Sgt. Michele Hammonds, a public affairs noncommissioned officer
with the Army Reserve's 214th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment, Fort Belvoir,
Va.'" ("AAFES Provides Free Items To Pentagon Rescue Workers," September
15, 2001. American Forces Press Service.
PR flack Hammonds is gushing about the support being shown "soldiers."
But the rescuers were civilians. Did she fail to notice the anomalies
herself, or was she hoping we were too dumb to notice them?
HEAD SHRINKING & SMOOCHIE POOCHIES
The military also provided "love dogs" and head shrinking sessions to the
bereaved whose "loved ones" were missing.
"Arlington, VA., Sept. 15, 2001-- More than 300 family members and loved
ones of victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the Pentagon have visited
DoD's Family (Casualty) Assistance Center in the Sheraton Hotel here since
it opened three days ago, according to DoD spokesman Marine Corps Maj. Ben
"'The first family member arrived at 8 a.m. Wednesday morning,' Owens noted.
'They're met at the entrance and escorted upstairs where they're interviewed
to find out what their concerns and needs are. We ensure they know
what the status of their missing loved one is and provide them with the
newest information we have. Currently, we have families here looking
for more than 60 missing loved ones.' . . .
"Depending on the family members' and loved ones' needs, the center provides
such resources and services as counseling, chaplains, benefits, compensation,
transportation, and financial, legal and lodging assistance. Family
members are coupled with chaplains and counselors and taken to rooms for
their private discussions. Forty rooms are available at the Sheraton, and
other hotels in the area have offered rooms to handle the overflow . . .
"'We also have 'stress and love dogs' provided by Therapy Dogs International,
Inc.,' Owens said. 'We asked for the therapy dogs because a family
said it would be helpful if we had them.'" ("Round-the-Clock Center
Aids Families, Loved Ones of Pentagon Casualties," American Forces Press
Service, Sept. 15, 20010.)
CALLS HOME FROM THE GRAVE
According to the Washington Post, January 20, 2002, "The Last Watch," (front
page, Style section), the entire chain of command of the super secret Chief
of Naval Operations Intelligence Plot (CNO-IP) were killed in the September
11 attack on the Pentagon.
One of the victims was Darin Pontell, who worked in CNO-IP. The Post
reported that two days after the attack, Darin's parents were still hoping
Darin was alive. Here is an excerpt from "The Last Watch," Washington
Post, January 20, 2001, pg.F1.
|"'Where'd I put my cell phone? Where is it?' Marilyn Pontell,
Darrin's mother, grew frantic looking for her purse. Her Nokia was
chiming 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game.'
"Marilyn would be sick if she missed that call. Maybe it was news
about her son. maybe it was Darin himself.
"Two days later, Marilyn and Gary Pontell still hoped their youngest boy
had been spared. Gathered at Darin and Devora's apartment in Gaithersburg
on Thursday afternoon, they could barely process the idea that he was dead . . .
"Navy officials gave garbled reports: One person said someone who looked
like Darin walked from the scene. Somebody else claimed he was working
far away, in the A-Ring. An officials said they couldn't find his
Acura Integra in the Pentagon lot . . .
"The Nokia sang again, then silence. Too late. when she finally
got to the phone, Marilyn scrolled through the menu. One missed call:
1:57 p.m. No message. But the incoming number was clearly identified.
It was Darin's.
"My God, maybe he was alive.
"For five more days, they waited. On Sept. 18, the Navy informed the
Pontells that Darin's body had been positively identified. His cell
phone was never returned to the family. They presume it was never
found. Perhaps the flip-phone had somehow dialed Marilyn's number
when the rubble shifted. But didn't all cell phones have to be turned
off upon entry into the CNO-IP [Chief of Naval Operations Intelligence Plot]?
"The FBI offered a one-word explanation for that call: 'anomaly.'"
SURVIVORS BE DAMNED! PASS THE MONEY!
While Gen. Rescue Shelton, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Rabbi Dov Zakheim,
and Army Secretary White should have been rescuing Darin and his Army and
Navy colleagues from the debris during those early frightful days, what
did they do instead?
On September 15, the DoD announced it had awarded a contract to the Hensel
Phelps Construction Company of Chantilly, Virginia to rebuild the Pentagon.
The contract has a potential value of $758 million, according the DoD release,
"Contract Awarded to Rebuild the Pentagon."
Now let's see: Disaster struck on September 11. According to the Emergency
Response and Rescue Institute, there may have been many living survivors
in that rubble on September 15. Yet on September 15, the contract
to rebuild over the ruins had already been awarded. Is that bad taste,
Come to think of it, does it sound as if the damage suffered by the Pentagon
on 9-11 came as a surprise to certain people in the DoD contracting office?
Does it sound like the job awarded to Hensel Phelps was open to competitive
bidding and went through channels? How do you spell "fast track"?
Did the Comptroller and Undersecretary of the DoD, Rabbi Zakheim, have a
role in the 3/4 $billion award? Whose friends and relatives will be
on the receiving end of that? Surely no one would be tasteless enough
As the Emergency Response & Research Institute website told us, victims
trapped by debris from earthquakes and other disasters can live up to 12
days. Do you think that maybe Darin Pontell was still alive on September
11, when Rumsfeld, "visibly upset," at his press conference, was swearing
there could be no survivors? Perhaps Darin was alive on September
12, waiting for the cranes to lift the debris and free him. Perhaps
he was alive on September 13, when his parents received a call from his
cell phone. Had he been reached in time, perhaps Darin might be alive
Gen. Leave-No-Man-Behind Shelton, Messrs. Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz, Rabbi
Zakheim, and the National Command Center were surely accomplices to the
murder of Darin Pontell and the others. The gang simply used different
weapons. They used water, a fire-cum-rescue media event, and a wrecking
ball. And lies, lies lies, and more lies.
However, there is another explanation for what we see, and for Rumsfeld's
certainty on 9-11 that "there cannot be any survivors; it just would be
beyond comprehension." We'll get to that later on.
BLACK HAWK DOWN REVISITED
On May 24-25, 2002, the Washington Post ran a two-part story concerning
seven (7) Special Operations team members who died during an attempt to
rescue another soldier in Afghanistan in March, 2002. The incident
began when a US helicopter attempted to land to engage al Qaeda forces.
"How it unfolded highlighted the extraordinary commitment of the American
soldiers not to leave fallen comrades behind: The entire episode spiraled
out of an attempt to rescue a single SEAL, who had fallen out of the initial
helicopter . . ." (Washington Post, May 24-25, 2002.
"Ambush at Takur Ghar" series.
Part I: "Bravery and Breakdowns in a Ridgetop Battle"
Part II: "A wintery Ordeal at 10,000 Feet"
There is something very wrong here. Without a chance to verify information
for ourselves, we are told a heroic story of events in far-off lands, first
in Somalia, now in Afghanistan. We are told that every individual
soldier is precious to the top command.
Yet close to home, with verification at hand, we see that the former commander
of the Special Operations Command and current Chairman of the Joint Chiefs
of Staff, and other top brass, were actually accomplices in the murders
of 125 Pentagon personnel.

INTERNECINE WARFARE AND A PURGE
RUMSFELD, MILITARY, HAND THEIR JOBS TO FBI
Let's go back to the beginning, and state the obvious. The Pentagon
is not your ordinary run-of the-mill office building. The Pentagon
is the military headquarters for the mightiest military power on earth.
It is the home of the US Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines, and Special Operations.
According to the Official Story, the 9-11 attack on the Pentagon was an
act of war. Rumsfeld and the top brass had lawful jurisdiction over
the piece of real estate on which the "act of war" had just occurred; the
Pentagon building was a war zone. But what did Rumsfeld, Gen. Shelton,
and the top brass do? On September 11, 2001, they gave jurisdiction
of the war zone to the FBI -- a division of the civilian Department of Justice.
Donald Rumsfeld dropped the news casually at his September 11, 2001, news
" . . . the FBI has secured the site."
Speaking of those supervising entry into the damaged portion of the Pentagon
on September 11, White said:
"That entry will be supervised by the FBI, who are in charge of the site."
Wow! After September 11, they brought soldiers to Wall Street to secure
civilians, and brought civilians to the Pentagon to secure the nation's
military headquarters. Who wrote this script?
("The View From Ground Zero," Business Week, September 24, 2001, pg. 47.)
All of this is as natural as a fish perched in a tree or a robin swimming
up river. And yet it happened, and NOBODY commented on the strangeness
of it all.
Notice that when Rumsfeld and White spoke, they did not mention who had
given the FBI jurisdiction over the Pentagon. They merely said:&
" . . . the FBI has secured the site," and "the FBI, who
are in charge of the site." But as Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld
was surely the person who gave his jurisdiction away. He did it by
simply redefining the war zone as a "crime scene." And who handles
crimes on federal property? Why, the FBI, maybe?
It's laughable when you think about it. The headquarters of the mightiest
military force on earth is attacked in an "act of war" and has to have its
site "secured" by a civilian agency.
And there was Gen. Shelton, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, standing
by silently, having abandoned the responsibilities of the US military.
Can you read the expression on his face as Rumsfeld spoke?
Read the transcript of the press interview; not one reporter picked up on
this anomaly and questioned Rumsfeld or White or Shelton.
FROM THE RIDICULOUS TO THE BIZARRE
Later, the DoD would say they gave jurisdiction over the "crime scene" to
-- hold on to your hat -- the Arlington County Fire Department; that the
Fire Department exercised jurisdiction for 10 days before handing it over
to the FBI. This from the DoD's own American Forces Press Service:
"The FBI assumed crime-scene jurisdiction at the Pentagon Terrorist attack
site Sept. 21 from the Arlington County (Va.) Fire Department, officials
said . . .
"Plaugher [Fire Chief] said Arlington firefighters will continue providing
emergency protection for FBI investigators combing the crash site . . .
He said his department would also assist in processing evidence."
("FBI Assumes Jurisdiction At Pentagon Crash Site," AFIS, Sept. 24)
But of course! The Arlington County Fire Department, armed with 50
mm water cannons, were "protecting" the FBI and had jurisdiction over the
Pentagon war zone. Pigs fly, too.
This extraordinary story is repeated on the Arlington County Fire Department's
webpage. Look for it in the News Release section, "Arlington Transfers
Pentagon Site To FBI," September 21, 2001 (
The Pentagon rescue was just one lie after another.
FBI GRABS MILITARY INTELLIGENCE DOCUMENTS
If the Arlington County fire department had jurisdiction over the Pentagon
crime scene from September 11 to September 21, the news must have been kept
quiet. On September 14, the Associated Press ran a story which clearly
indicates the FBI was actually in charge.
But more importantly, the AP report reveals the FBI took possession of military
intelligence documents at the site. The story quoted Jerry Crawford, a civilian,
and leader of an urban search and rescue team from Memphis, Tenn.
" . . . Crawford also said officials were worried about classified
material and intelligence information that is strewn throughout the rubble.
He said no military intelligence officials have been allowed into the area
. . . 'We have the FBI with us and nobody is touching anything
they're not supposed to touch,' Crawford said. He said that when rescue
workers 'see something marked secret or sensitive, we leave it alone.'"
("Work being done to shore up Pentagon," Associated Press, September 14,
Did you notice that? NO MILITARY INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS WERE ALLOWED
INTO THE AREA THAT WAS STREWN WITH MILITARY INTELLIGENCE DOCUMENTS.
Under what circumstances would military intelligence people ever lose jurisdiction
over their own documents? Why, when their documents have been scattered
over a "crime scene," and the FBI has control of the crime scene.
Intelligence agencies are proprietary about their intelligence: they work
in compartmentalized units, and they operate on a "need to know" policy.
How likely is it the FBI agents collecting and reading those Top Secret
and SCI (Special Compartmentalized Information) military intelligence documents
had been cleared by military intelligence to read them?
If the FBI agents did NOT possess the clearances to see them, why did Rumsfeld,
Shelton & Company give them access? But if the FBI agents DID
had the necessary clearances, why did they? What is going on in this
Since the offices hit were Army and Navy offices, we can assume that the
intelligence documents lying around the Pentagon grounds were Army and Navy
military intelligence documents. What might be so important about
those documents? Why might the FBI be so interested? Perhaps
we should have a closer look at the FBI.
As you read what follows, remember this: the FBI was not at the Pentagon
site to investigate. They already "knew" the Pentagon had been hit
by American Airlines Flight 77, supposedly commandeered by terrorists.

FOREIGN FIFTH COLUMN
OPERATES OPENLY ON US SOIL
Fifth column: "A clandestine subversive organization working within
a given country to further an invading enemy's military and political aims"
(American Heritage Dictionary, 1976).
Unknown to most Americans, a foreign intelligence agency operates openly
on American soil, with FBI collaboration. The purpose of the agency
is to identify American citizens who pose political threats to the interests
of the foreign power. The foreign agency gathers or invents dirt on the
people who pose threats, and attempts to neutralize them, one way or another.
The name of that foreign intelligence agency or fifth column is the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith (ADL). The ADL is an Israeli/Jewish spy
organization dedicated to the neutralization of those who oppose Zionist
Let's take a small step back in time and look at how the ADL operated on
American soil when WW II broke out in Europe.
ADL'S TREASONOUS POLICIES
Walter Winchell was a famous news and gossip columnist whose heyday extended
from the mid 1920s through the 1950s. He was a descendant of a long
line of Jewish rabbis and cantors; the original family name was "Weinschel,"
which in Yiddish meant "sour cherries." A dedicated Zionist and friend
of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and J. Edgar Hoover, Winchell badly wanted
the US to enter World War II. Claiming he was a patriotic American,
Winchell smeared those opposed to intervention as Nazi collaborators, anti-semites,
The following excerpt is taken from "Winchell (Gossip, Power, and The
Culture of Celebrity)
," by Neal Gabler (Alfred Knopf and Vintage Books,
New York, 1994.) Time Magazine called the book "The best book of the
year," and the New York Daily News called it "A wonderful cultural history."
So we may conclude this book is consistent with unchallenged "official"
history. Here was Winchell's strategy for securing winning support
of Zionist goals.
"To Walter isolationism had now become unconscionable, a form of treason.
He was determined to prove that the isolationists were not, as they claimed,
patriotic Americans who happened to hold a different point of view from
his own; they were Nazi collaborators, anti-semites, and racists who cared
far less about saving American lives than about ensuring Hitler's victory
. . .
"Every week brought new charges from Walter linking the radical right to
Nazi Germany, but Walter's prime source was not, as most assumed, the FBI;
in fact, he was one if ITS [the FBI's] prime sources, channeling hundreds
of documents abut Nazi groups to the bureau both before and during the war.
Rather Walter's most important source was Arnold Forster [ne Fastenberg],
the young basso-voiced attorney who, at the time he met Walter early in
1941, was New York counsel for the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B'nai
"When it came to the radical right, Forster had one of the best intelligence-gathering
operations in the country, with spies everywhere . . ."
. . . including spies in one key US Senator's staff.
"Occasionally Forster himself drafted whole columns for Walter . . ."
(Winchell, pgs. 294-295.)
Notice in particular this sentence in the above passage:
" . . . in fact, he [Winchell] was one if ITS [the FBI's]
prime sources, channeling hundreds of documents about Nazi groups to the
bureau both before and during the war."
Remember, a "Nazi" group was any group that did not agree with Jewish/Zionist
goals. So at least by the 1940s, the ADL was using the FBI as its
cat's paw. ADL was targeting loyal Americans who put America first,
and reporting them to the FBI, via Winchell, as enemies of America and subversives.
Simultaneously, Winchell smeared his targets before the American public,
ruining them by accusation.
Later, after WW II had ended, Winchell beat the drums for the establishment
of the state of Israel on Palestinian lands. James Forrestal, US Secretary
of Defense under Harry S Truman, was adamantly opposed to this.
Winchell and his colleague Drew Pearson started an intense campaign of media
vilification against Forrestal. Eventually Israel was recognized and
Forrestal was ousted. He became "depressed," was admitted to the Bethesda
Naval Hospital and committed "suicide" by jumping out of a hospital window.
With Forrestal out of the way, a formidable opponent to the Zionism was
eliminated for once and for all.
Even today, heavy disinformation surrounds the circumstances of Forrestal's
death. Search the Net, and you will find claims that Forrestal did
not commit suicide, but was murdered because Forrestal had been abducted
by space aliens and "they" [?] feared he would write his memoirs.
The purpose of this silliness? To suggest that anyone who suspects
Forrestal was murdered is crazy.
As already mentioned, Winchell was an intimate of J. Edgar Hoover.
The friendship stretched over decades. One wonders whether the
basis of this alleged friendship was blackmail material supplied to Winchell
by the ADL. Blackmail is a very useful tool in the manipulation of
public figures. With its vast and powerful spy network, it is not
unreasonable to assume the ADL had blackmail material on cross-dresser Hoover.
Winchell introduced Hoover to the Stork Club and the night clubbing life
in New York. One wonders if Winchell encouraged Hoover to participate
in other activities that would compromise him.
Winchell had attempted to get a commission in Naval Intelligence, but his
application was rejected. Hoover put pressure on Naval Intelligence,
and Winchell was accepted as a lieutenant ("Winchell," pgs. 197, 220).
ISRAELI "IN-YOUR-FACE" COVERT ACTION
Now let's leave the 1940s and move up to present time. These excerpts
have been taken from Counterpunch's February 25, 2002 edition.
"In 1993, the District of Attorney of San Francisco released 700 pages of
documents implicating the Anti-Defamation League, an organization that claims
to be a defender of civil rights, in a vast spying operation directed against
American citizens who were opposed to Israel's policies in the Occupied
West Bank and Gaza and to the apartheid policies of the government
of South Africa and passing on information to both governments.
"Under great political pressure, Smith [District Attorney of San Francisco?]
later dropped the charges . . ."
A man by the name of Roy Bullock was one of the ADL's operatives.
"Ten days before he was assassinated in South Africa, Chris Hani, the man
who would have succeeded Nelson Mandela as the country's president,
was trailed by Bullock on a trip through California who reported on it to
the South African government."
After Los Angeles Arab American leader Alex Odeh was murdered, Bullock was
discovered to have a key, and a floor plan, of the murdered man's office.
This is evidence that ADL operatives may have helped plan and execute political
assassinations in the US and abroad. But don't hold your breath for
the FBI to investigate or charge Bullock, or any other ADLer, in connection
to these murders.
("The ADL Spying Case Is Over, But The Struggle Continues," Counterpunch,
February 25, 2002.)
San Francisco Bay area activists who were spied upon sued the ADL for violation
of their privacy rights as provided under California law; the suit was settled
out of court in February, 2002.
ADL AND FBI ARE PARTNERS,
FBI DIRECTOR SAYS
Certainly the FBI did not join the suit against the ADL as a friend of the
US public, nor did the federal government file its own suit against the
ADL for violating the civil rights of Americans. In fact, while litigation
was in progress in 1997, the FBI openly cooperated with the ADL:
- The FBI displayed ADL posters in FBI offices throughout the country,
The FBI hosted a Holocaust Memorial Ceremony at FBI headquarters at which
ADL chairman Abraham H. Foxman spoke. (
On June 30, 2000, FBI Director Louis Freeh and the directors of the United
States Holocaust Museum and the Anti-Defamation League announced a new training
program for FBI agents. According to the FBI press release, Freeh
said the new course "focuses on law enforcement's historical role in the
1930's and 40's in abetting the Holocaust. It is designed to ensure
that FBI investigators, early in their training, understand fully the consequences
when law enforcement fails to protect citizens, their civil rights, their
dignities, and their moral, ethical and human values." (Release no
longer available at FBI website.)
Quite clearly the purpose of the FBI course was NOT as stated, for the FBI
"failed to protect citizens, their civil rights, their dignities, and their
moral, ethical and human values" when it tortured and murdered the Branch
Davidians in Waco and then destroyed the evidence at the crime scene.
And of course, the ADL had no objection to the FBI conduct at Waco, either.
On May 7, 2002, Robert S. Mueller III, Director of the FBI and a Marine
on "retired" status, addressed the ADL's 24th National Leadership Conference.
"A few months ago, Abe [Abraham H. Foxman] and Jess [Jess N. Hordes, ADL
Washington representative] came by my office for a visit. I appreciated
their taking the time to meet with me."
So here we have the head of the FBI telling two professional Jews -- who
openly work to undermine American Constitutional liberties and who actively
work as foreign agents on US soil -- that the FBI appreciates the time THEY
took to pay a visit to the director of the FBI.
"I have long admired and respected the work of ADL, and I appreciate your
longstanding support of the FBI. I know that under my predecessor,
Louis Freeh, this partnership reached new heights. As I told Abe and
Jess, I am absolutely committed to building on that relationship.
"We in the FBI tremendously value your perspectives and your partnership
. . ." (
Amazing to have he FBI-ADL relationship stated so boldly. The FBI
admits to a PARTNERSHIP, but it does not sound like a partnership. It sounds
as though ADL is firmly in the driver's seat. As Mueller said of the
two ADL executives: "I appreciated their taking the time to meet with
me." Mueller does not sound like a partner, he sounds like a
DEFENSE INVESTIGATIVE SERVICE
WARNS OF ISRAELI/JEWISH SPIES
In January, 1996, the Defense Investigative Service wrote a confidential
memo to many military contractors warning them that the Israeli government
was "aggressively" trying to steal US military and intelligence secrets,
using "strong ethnic ties" to recruit spies (that is, using Jewish US citizens.)
The Washington Post stated:
"The confidential memo on Israel began by noting that the country, a major
recipient of US military and economic aid, 'is a political and military
ally.' But it continued, 'the nature of espionage relations between the
two governments is competitive.'
"It said Israel 'aggressively collects [U.S.] military and industrial technology,'
including spy satellite data, missile defense information, and data on military
aircraft, tanks, missile boats, and radars.
"Drawing on the example of the Pollard case and of other Israeli espionage
operations in the United States, the memo said that the country's recruitment
techniques include 'ethnic targeting, financial aggrandizement, and identification
and exploitation of individual frailties' of US citizens.
"'Placing Israeli nationals in key industries . . . is a
technique utilized with great success,' the memo said." (The Washington
Post, January 30, 1996, p. A1
ADL USES THE OLD "ANTI-SEMITISM" CANARD
American Jews secured a copy of the memo in quick order. (No espionage
here, of course!)
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B'nai B'rith publicly called upon the
Pentagon to -- are you ready for this? -- conduct an "internal investigation"
-- not on the possibly treasonous American Jews, but on the intelligence
officers who wrote the memo!
"'This is a distressing charge which impugns American Jews and borders on
anti-semitism,' said ADL Director Abraham H. Foxman in a letter to Defense
Secretary William J. Perry.
"The government memo, and the ADL's angry reaction to it, highlight a particularly
delicate issue for the Defense Department. Many military counterintelligence
officials remain scarred by the 1985 revelation that Navy intelligence analyst
Jonathan Jay Pollard stole what the memo refers to as 'vast quantities of
classified information' on Israel's behalf over a 17-month period . . .
"In first publicizing the memo, which was first obtained by the Jewish weekly
Moment Magazine, ADL director Foxman complained not only about its reference
to Israeli recruitment techniques but also its harsh tone . . ."
DEFENSE INVESTIGATIVE SERVICE
PATRIOTS WERE RIGHT
In fact American Jews are regularly called upon to take part in Israeli
intelligence operations within the US, and regularly do exactly that.
There is even a Hebrew word that denotes such people: "sayanim." Mossad
whistleblower Victor Ostrovsky has described them as "a unique and important
part of the Mossad's operation."
"There are thousands of sayanim around the world. In London alone,
there are about 2,000 who are active, and another 5,000 on the list.
They fulfill many different roles. A car sayan, for example, running
a rental agency, could help the Mossad rent a car without having to complete
the usual documentation . . .
"Suppose during an operation a katsa [Mossad case officer] suddenly
had to come up with an electronics store as a cover. A call to a sayan
in that business could bring 50 television sets, 200 VCRs -- whatever was
needed -- from his warehouse to your building, and in next to no time, you'd
have a store with $3 or $4 million worth of stock in it . . .
The system allows the Mossad to work with a skeleton staff. That's
why, for example, a KGB station would employ 100 people, while a comparable
Mossad station would need only six or seven." (By Way Of Deception
, Victor Ostrovsky & Claire Hoy, St. Martin's Paperbacks, New York,
1990, pgs. 87, 88.)
In The Other Side of Deception
, Victor Ostrovsky writes about another
Israeli intelligence unit, the Lishka Le Kishry Mada, which he describes
as "the section for scientific relations, a special unit directly under
the prime minister's office . . ."
The Lishka Le Kishry Mada ("LAKAM") was the agency that recruited Jonathan
Pollard. Sayan within the Pentagon gave the LAKAM case manager sources,
and Pollard was directed to bring out the hard copy. (The Other
Side of Deception
, Victor Ostrovsky, Harper Paperbacks, New York, 1995;
pgs. 33, 34.)
So in the Pollard case, American Jews within the Pentagon had their loyalties
tested. They chose Israel.
RECRUITING FIFTH COLUMNISTS
On May 22, 2002, the Christian Science Monitor published an article describing
how Israel persuades Palestinians to betray Palestine and work as Israeli
Fifth Columnists. The methods used by Israeli agents to entrap Palestinians
include sexual seduction and blackmail. Palestinians with criminal
records are offered freedom in exchange for information. Other Palestinians
have been shown photographs of female relatives undressing in fashion store
changing rooms, and told the images would be circulated unless they agreed
As Palestinian collaborators are drawn more deeply into the system they
may be asked to infiltrate the highest levels of militant and political
groups or set up targets for arrest and assassination. Israel's use
of targeted assassination typically involves collaborators arranging the
hit. ("How Israel builds its fifth column," Christian Science Monitor,
May 22, 2002.
It would be naive to expect that Israeli agents do not use similar techniques
on Americans, whether military personnel or civilians. Some of you
might remember the FBI's ABSCAM's sting operation, in which undercover FBI
agents lured Congressmen into taking bribes. The obvious effect of
ABSCAM was to show the Senate and the House that the FBI (read: Israel)
could "get" any of them at any time, by digging up dirt, provoking it, or
(or go to http://www.awesome80s.com/Awesome80s/News/
and search for "Abscam")
Now that we understand how things work, let's get back to the ADL's 1996
complaint about the Defense Investigative Service. How was the complaint
DEFENSE INVESTIGATIVE SERVICE TAKES A DIVE
"Assistant Secretary of Defense Emmett Paige Jr., who has responsibility
for military intelligence matters, replied in a letter to Foxman yesterday
that 'the content' of this document does not reflect the official position
of the Department of Defense.
"He described the author as a 'low-ranking individual at a field activity
of the Defense Investigative Service.'
"'While we object to the document in general, singling out ethnicity as
a matter of counterintelligence vulnerability is particularly repugnant
to the Department,' Paige wrote. 'We have instructed appropriate personnel
that similar documents will not be produced in the future.'" ("Defense
Memo Warned of Israeli Spying," Washington Post, January 30, 1996.
So . . . if military intelligence officers think that American
Jews may form a Fifth Column in the US and work to steal our secrets for
Israel, they should keep their mouths shut. In other words, intelligence
officers must toe the politically correct line and effectively cooperate
in treason -- or loose their jobs.
We are getting a clearer picture here: The Pentagon is comprised of at least
two camps: Patriotic military people who are loyal to this country, and
Jews and Jewish sympathizers who work for the Nation of Zion. Note:
There is no shortage of Gentiles, especially "Christian" Zionists, who would
not gladly betray America for Israel.
It is beyond the scope of this article, but readers should research the
Net themselves and confirm that, particularly since 9-11, the FBI has been
seeking to expand and consolidate its hold over "law-enforcement" agencies
world-wide. The FBI, draped in an American flag, is another arm of
Israel -- an intelligence/enforcement arm.
ARMY FREE SPEECH REGARDING ISRAEL
On September 10, 2001, just one day before 9-11, The Washington Times ran
a front-page story "US troops would enforce peace under Army study."
The Times quoted officers in the Army's School of Advanced Military Studies
(SAMS). Commenting on the Mossad, Israel's intelligence/dirty trick
service, the SAMS officers said:
"Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target US
forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act."
On April 4, 2002, I wrote to the Army's School of Advanced Military Studies,
asking, among other things, if the Washington Times story was true.
The next day I received a reply from SAMS.
The SAMS public relations officer said that The Times' article was misleading
because it failed to mention "the Army study" was an academic exercise.
But the SAMS's "academic exercise" explanation tell us something even more
significant about the Army: That within SAM's ranks, and within its
critically important officer training ranks, the propensities of the Nation
of Israel can be openly discussed, without fear of the "anti-semitism" smear.
Politics be damned. Facts are facts, and studies are studies.
Revolutionary! It seems that there is still freedom of thought, freedom
of inquiry, and freedom of speech within U.S. Army officer ranks.
It says that certain elements within the Army were not under Israeli's heel
-- or at least they were not prior to 9/11. The Israelis surely must
have known about that Army situation. That situation could be extremely
dangerous to Israel.
One way to handle the danger would be to send a shot across the bows of
the Army, a shot which might communicate: "Shut up." It would be even better
to liquidate some of the particularly troublesome Army personnel, too.
ARMY SUFFERS HEAVIEST LOSSES ON 9-11
This from the New York Times, reporting the respective losses of each of
the services on 9-11:
"The Army suffered the heaviest losses, including Lt. Gen. Timothy J. Maude,
a three-star general who headed the Army's personnel division, according
"Altogether, 21 Army soldiers and officers and 53 civilians who worked in
the Department of the Army were killed, many of them from the service's
budget and personnel offices.
"The Navy reported that 33 sailors and officers, along with nine civilians,
remained missing. They worked in a variety of offices, including the Navy's
operation center, which was damaged in the attack. Ten other missing people
were from other defense agencies, including seven from the Defense Intelligence
Agency." ("Pentagon toll at 190," New York Times, September 14, 2001,
No active duty Air Force, Marine, or Special Operations personnel were killed
ARMY REMAINS SUSPICIOUS OF ISRAELIS
On April 24, 2002, the pro-Zionist WorldNetDaily, which claims to be an
alternate source of news on the Internet,
reported that a US Army Reserve counterintelligence officer with dual citizenship
in the United States and Israel had his security clearance revoked.
Naturally the officer claimed bias on the part of the Army, and complained
about the Army's treatment of him to WorldNetDaily.
You can see the report here:
Note that according to the report, the Israeli had his security clearance
pulled by the Army's personnel command, which was obviously concerned with
the internal security of the Army. Good for them!
Now look again at the accounting of the Army's 9-11 Pentagon casualties.
The Army's personnel division was heavily hit. This from the above-cited
New York Times article:
"The Army suffered the heaviest losses, including Lt. Gen. Timothy J. Maude,
a three-star general who headed the Army's personnel division, according
"Altogether, 21 Army soldiers and officers and 53 civilians who worked in
the Department of the Army were killed, many of them from the service's
budget and personnel offices."
Those Army personnel officers may have had a list of names of people those
security clearances they wanted to yank. They may have had other information
that Israel wanted squashed.
DEFENSE INVESTIGATIVE SERVICES DEATHS
Seven members of the Defense Intelligence Agency, the agency that had warned
about the recruitment of American Jews by the Israeli spy networks, also
According to the flagship Zionist publication the Washington Post, the entire
chain of command of the super secret "Chief of Naval Operations Intelligence
Plot" were killed on September 11. ("The Last Watch," January 20,
2002, front page of Style section, quoted above.) Naval Intelligence
was the base from which Jonathan Pollard operated. Remember, it was
Naval Intelligence that caught Pollard and Naval Intelligence that insisted
the FBI arrest him. How many patriotic Naval Intelligence types had
an attitude adjustment on September 11, 2001?
NO AIR FORCE OR MARINE DEATHS
As mentioned above, no active duty Air Force people died as a result of
the 9-11 attack on the Pentagon. Air Force types, of course, make
up the staff of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).
Almost certainly it was NORAD that sent the remote controlled planes plowing
into their targets on 9-11. See:
No active duty Marines were killed on 9-11, either.
We have already seen one Marine miracle -- the Marine photographer who was
at the Pentagon at approximately 9:30 a.m. on September 11 and took shots
of an incident that could not have occurred until 9:45 -- 9:55a.m.
Another Marine miracle was described in an article posted on the Usenet
group soc.veterans on September 16, 2001.
|"Subject: America mourns victims of terrorism
"Submitted by: Headquarters MarineCorps
Story by Lance Cpl. John r. Lawson, III
" . . . On Thursday, Marines recovered a Marine Corps flag
from the impact area that -- strangely -- went untouched. Seeing a
Marine proudly carry the red and gold flag away from the rubble moved Williams.
"'That kind of touches you,' he said.
"Then he added, 'Once a Marine, always a Marine.'"
The soc.veterans posting does not explain what a MARINE flag was doing in
Army/Navy offices. And it is indeed nothing short of a miracle that
any flag, be it Marine or otherwise, would survive the inferno and building
collapse "untouched," when 125 souls perished in the same place.
The posting implies that the flag was held high on a staff as it was carried
from the ruins, for notice the flag was carried "proudly." That term would
scarcely be used if the flag was folded.
Flags are important symbols -- they are used to indicate authority and supremacy.
The miraculous discovery of an unscathed Marine flag in the ruins of Army
and Navy operations offices could well be a show of victory over Army/Navy
elements liquidated on 9-11.
Coincidentally, the director of the FBI, Robert S. Mueller III, the
man who openly boasts that his organization is a "partner" of an Israeli
intelligence arm (the ADL), is a Marine. ("Once a Marine, always a
Mueller would have received the Army and Navy intelligence documents scattered
on the Pentagon grounds and gathered up by the civilian rescuers.
For all we know, the so-called FBI agents to whom the documents were given
were working directly for the Mossad, or were Israeli commandos working
under cover. Recall the FBI/ADL "partnership" mentioned by the Marine
Director of the FBI.
MARINES WORK FOR FBI ON 9-11
We are asked to believe the FBI is the foremost criminal investigatory agency
in the world; that they have highly trained employees who are experts in
gathering evidence that will stand up in any court. We are also asked
to believe that the FBI was at the Pentagon on 9-11 to "investigate."
But at the same time we are asked to believe the FBI arrived at the scene
without their own photographers, and hired two photographers on the spot
to take court-room quality photos. Both photographers just happened
to arrive at the scene with cameras, and both happened to be Marines.
One of these was Cpl.Jason Ingersoll, the gentleman who took a photo of
the 9:40 a.m. event at 9:30 a.m.
According to an article in Recordnet.com, at the time impact occurred, Ingersoll
was in his Marine Corps' headquarters office, across the street from the
Pentagon. When he heard the impact, he grabbed his camera and went
"One of the first photographers on the scene, he was drafted by the FBI
to become a member of it evidence-response team. All through the day, Ingersoll
took photos that some day could be used as evidence in court. He also had

Ingersoll put in 12-hour shifts for the FBI over the next few days, providing
them with photographic "support." Recordnet.com also stated:
"Ingersoll . . . helped place bodies in bags to be handed
over to the Army recovery team." ("Lode Marine's heroic photo duty

the FBI drafts him into the crucial work of

Removing the bodies of the victims -- apparently without training in the
proper handling of bodies at a crime scene.
A second Marine photographer just happened to show up with his camera and
just happened to get hired on the spot by the FBI. Sgt. Marshall Paull
is the photographer for the Commandant of the Marine Corps., Gen. James
L. Jones. As mentioned already, the terrorists had been considerate
enough to avoid hitting the offices of the Joint Chiefs; after the event,
Paull was safe, grabbed his camera, and headed for the impact site.
"During his time at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Ariz., Sgt. Paull had
the unfortunate duty of photographing a few aviation accidents. When
he saw FBI agents arrive at the Pentagon, he told them of his experience
and said he would be willing to help.
"They took him up on his offer, and soon put him in a helicopter to take
overhead pictures of the damage to the Pentagon."
Several Public Action supporters have searched the Net, but found no photos
showing FBI helicopters over Pentagon airspace on 9-11. However, remember
the helicopter, variously described as a military helicopter conducting
an "aerial survey" of the Pentagon crash site, and as an "Army Red Cross
helicopter" (see "Air Space Not Too
", above). Most likely, this was the helicopter into which FBI agents
put Sgt. Paull. The FBI, not the military, was obviously controlling
the air space, military personnel, and military materiel on 9-11.
Recall that "no military intelligence officials have been allowed into the
area," nor were they allowed to gather up military intelligence documents
on 9-11; even military secret documents became FBI property. See "
FBI Grabs Military Intelligence Documents
Thus it was the "investigators" (the FBI), not the "war fighters" (the military),
who captured the Pentagon war zone during the first days of the War For
"On the Wednesday and Friday following the attack, Sgt. Paull assisted FBI
agents by actually entering the devastated segment of the Pentagon to search
for bodies. It was Sgt. Paull's tasks to take photographs."

Doubly blessed with serendipitous photographers was the FBI that day.
But why, oh why, did the FBI show up at the "crime scene" of the century
without FBI crime scene photographers?

MARINES AND ISRAEL ARE BUGS IN A RUG
Few deny the Israelis are committing war crimes and genocide against Palestinians.
The massacres at the Jenin refugee camp have been well-documented in the
press throughout the world. You can study a sampling of the world press
accounts and see photos of the Jenin massacre here:
What is the US Marine response to Jenin massacre? The Marines are
studying the event to see "what they could learn from that urban fight."
"Likewise, just weeks after the vicious fight in the Jenin refugee camp
that ended April 15 with 75 Israelis and Palestinians dead and nearly 150
buildings in rubble, a senior Israeli Defense Force intelligence officer
visited the United States to watch U.S. Marines experiment with new urban-warfare
Urban warfare? The Palestinians did not provide an opportunity for
"urban warfare" practice. What happened at Jenin was urban slaughter.
So instead of condemning the barbarism, the Marine Corps has announced to
the world that the US Marines want to take lessons.
Who will be the targets of the Marines in US urban warfare? That answer
is simple. The targets will be American citizens -- American men,
women and children, just as the Israeli targets in Jenin were Palestinian
men, women, and children.
Let's all sing together: "Oh, the land of the free, and the home of
the BRAVE . . ."
A WORD ABOUT
THE SPECIAL OPERATIONS COMMAND
Now it is time to take a closer look at the Special Operations Command.
It is indeed a coincidence that Americans of Jewish descent were prominently
involved in the establishment of the Special Operations Command. Harold
Brown, a Jew, was Secretary of Defense when the attempted rescue of 53 American
hostages in Iran turned into a disaster in April, 1980.
The failed mission under Harold Brown was used to promote the establishment
of a separate Special Operations Command. According to official history,
on May 15, 1986, Sen. William S. Cohen, following up on the suggestions
of such as Gen. Edward C. "Shy" Meyer and Pentagon functionary Noel Koch,
introduced legislation to establish a separate Special Operations Command.

SPECIAL OPS, AT ISRAEL'S SERVICE, CIRCA 1993
The Special Operations Command was activated on April 16, 1987. Six
years later, using civilian facades provided by the ATF and FBI, Special
Ops staged its Waco operation. Study the Waco Holocaust Electronic
Museum's War Gallery:
The deaths of David Koresh and his followers served Israeli interests. David
Koresh was born Vernon Wayne Howell, and legally changed his name, taking
the tribal name of the prophet Mohammed: "Quraysh." Another transliteration
of that name is "Koresh." David Quraysh, or David Koresh,
if you prefer, was teaching that the existence of the state of Israel was
not essential to the fulfillment of Biblical prophecies, and that a Savior
would come from Persia (Iran). David Koresh was teaching essentially
Islamic beliefs; he threatened Israeli control of the fundamentalist "Christian"
(Zionist) movement in the US. Clearly he had to go.
The Waco affair was disguised as a law-enforcement action gone wrong, but
it was a Special Operations junket from start to finish. Who was the
commander of the Special Operations Command in April 1993? It was
Gen. Wayne Allan Downing. More on Downing ("Waco Wayne") below.
Coincidentally, it was the black helicopters of the 160th Airborne Division
Special Operations Regiment (SOAR), featured in "Black Hawk Down (Leave
No Man Behind)" that kicked off the February 28, 1993 raid by strafing the
women's and children's quarters with machine gun fire, killing and wounding
an unknown number of Davidian moms and kids. Those who were not killed
outright on the first day of the raid died later of their wounds.
Those remaining alive and loyal to David Koresh were assassinated on or
just before April 19, along with Koresh himself.
The rescue recorded by Tee Vee cameras on April 19, 1993, was staged.
Plausible explanations for the victims' deaths were provided, including
a fire and a structural collapse, just as a fire and structural collapse
were plausible explanations of the Pentagon deaths, eight years later.
COOKING UP PLAUSIBLE CAUSES OF DEATH
After the April 19 Waco fire went out, Special Operations-cum-FBI-cum-Israel's
gofers sent down two world renowned Smithsonian Institution forensic scientists
to help cook up the fraudulent autopsy reports: Drs. Douglas Owsley
and Douglas Ubelaker, from the Division of Physical Anthropology at the
Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution.
They put their names on autopsy reports that contained lots of obvious lies
about how victims were killed in the fire or crushed in a structural collapse,
One of the dumbest lies was this: The moms and kids died as a result
of crushing injuries suffered when a concrete room collapsed. The
problem? Widely published photos in newsmagazines and newspapers, taken
from the ground and the air, show that the concrete room did not collapse.
And both Owsley and Ubelaker had their names right there, right on the fraudulent
reports citing "structural collapse" as the cause of death. You can
read about Ubelaker and Owsley's high jinks by going to the Waco Holocaust
Electronic Museum and putting "Ubelaker" and "Owsley" in the search engine.
Or meander through the Museum using this URL as a starting point:
"BONE GUYS" PAW PENTAGON CADAVERS
Now here's the creepy part. The FBI, given control of the Pentagon
9-11 war zone, called in the same people -- Owsley and Ubelaker -- to work
on the Pentagon cadavers. Read "Skeleton Keys," in the May 31, 2002
Washington Post's Style section.
And read this related article: "Pentagon Cadavers Meet 'The Bone Guys'"
Why were Owsley and Ubelaker -- whom the Post dubbed "bone guys" in its
May 31 article -- called in on the Pentagon job at all? The Washington
Post article does not explain that. Supposedly, a Boeing 757 hit the
Pentagon, a fire broke out, the building collapsed, and the victims died
on impact or in the fire, or in the structural collapse. On September
11, Donald Rumsfeld declared all the missing persons to be dead, without
having seen one body. The identity of each victim was known.
Cause of death, date of death, circumstances of death -- all were established.
The FBI has a DNA lab. What mysteries required the services of the
Smithsonian "bone guys"?
MADE-TO-ORDER AUTOPSY REPORTS
Ah! When you check out the history of Owsley and Ubelaker, the lights
come on! The bone guys use the magic of their prestige to turn a wish into
a fact. Their names, along with the prestige of the Smithsonian Institution,
will ensure no member of the medical examiner or forensic community will
ever challenge those reports. [Footnote
Want the headless corpse of David Koresh's 8-year old son Cyrus to have
died of suffocation? Or maybe a head injury? Or whatever?
Dr. Owsley will lend his name that effort. See pages 2, 3 of Cyrus
Koresh's autopsy report:
Want the headless, armless, legless corpse of Davidian John McBean to have
died of asphyxiation? Dr. Douglas Ubelaker will help you whistle that
one through -- without ever raising a question about how poor Mr. McBean
managed to lose his head, both arms, and both legs during the process of
and pages 1, 6 of Mr. McBean's autopsy report:
Want a political assassination in Toledo to look like a fire victim at the
Pentagon? You got it. Want an autopsy report that no other medical
examiner in the world would question? You got it. Just ask the
Smithsonian "bone guys" to sign off on whatever autopsy report you wish
to write. Any fantastic cover-up excuse for a death becomes scientific
When important people are assassinated and circumstances of their deaths
must be covered up, only the best people are used. In light of all
the evidence we have looked at so far, doesn't the presence of Drs. Ubelaker
and Owsley in the Pentagon 9-11 team make you just a little uncomfortable?
PENTAGON VICTIMS ON A HIT LIST?
Put it all together: It is possible that some of the 125 victims who
died on 9-11 at the Pentagon had been specially selected for the death list,
and had been killed by other means; perhaps the fire/building collapse/delayed
rescue scenario was set up as a diversion and to destroy evidence.
That's how they did it in Waco. And we see the same crowd present,
and in control, at the Pentagon, along with a spectacular fireball explosion,
an uncontrollable fire, structural collapse, and a sham rescue. It's
looking like deja vu all over again.
Now we must turn our attention to administrative matters.
As mentioned above, at the time of the February 28, 1993 raid on the Mt.
Carmel Center, the commander of the Special Operations Command was Gen.
Wayne Allan Downing ("Waco Wayne"). Try to find an official US military
biography of Downing on the net -- detailed biographies such as these of
Gens. Shelton, Myers, Eberhart, etc., already cited. This writer tried,
but could not do so, even though I could find bios on other "retired" or
even deceased members of the military. Specific details of Downing's
background -- exactly where he was when --have been smudged out. What's
to hide? Surely he and the US military is proud of what he did to
the moms and kids at Waco.
Waco Wayne is now the Zionists' terrorism tsar. He is the special
terrorism "consultant" who reports to National security Advisor Condoleezza
Rice and Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge.
Here is a recent photo of Mr. Helter-Skelter himself, disguised as
a human in a business suit.
SHELTON SUCCEEDS WACO WAYNE
Waco Wayne's handling of bogus Davidian rescue attempt was so ham-fisted
that he was eventually forced to retire. (See
for details.) Gen. Henry Hugh Shelton succeeded Downing as Commander
of the Special Operations Command in 1996.
In 1997, William S. Cohen, then Secretary of Defense, selected Shelton as
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. (Recall that Cohen introduced
the Special Ops legislation in the Senate.
And to bring matters full circle: Here was Shelton on September 11, 2001,
silently betraying his command, silently assisting in the murders of 125

The Purpose Of 9-11
9-11 Chabad Lubavitch Bash
Theory And Practice Of Talmudic Law
Why FBI Took Charge Of War Zone
Ladies and Gentlemen of The US Military
THE BIG PICTURE
. . .
The 9-11 terror served Israeli purposes, and continues to serve them.
Allow me to explain how.
George Bush claims that the 9-11 terror was perpetrated by MUSLIMS who were
jealous of our freedom. But do politicians always tell the truth?
For several decades, Congress and various presidents, including both Bush
I and Bush II, have been laying the groundwork to turn America into a theocracy
controlled by Jewish rabbis. Bush the Elder's administration passed
the groundwork legislation. You can read the full story, "Merry Christmas,
and OFF WITH YOUR HEAD," at:
In brief: In the new Jewish-designed American theocracy, Gentiles
will be forced to join a synthetic religion, designed by rabbis for a servant
class. Gentiles who insist on maintaining their own religious practices
will be put to death (beheaded) for idolatry. Christian religious holidays
such as Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, Easter Sunday, will be abolished.
There will be two sets of laws, and two court systems, for America: one
for Jews, and one for Gentiles. Gentile education in mathematics,
science, history, English, social studies, computers, technical subjects,
will be severely limited.
A powerful, monied Jewish sect is at the vanguard of this movement for a
world-wide Jewish theocracy. The name of the sect is Chabad Lubavitch.
And no, Chabad Lubavitch is not an aberration within Judaism; it relies
upon the teachings of the Talmud and other classical works of Judaism.
You may often hear the Lubavitchers described as "ultra-Orthodox," meaning
they are right in line with the fundamental doctrines of Judaism.
President Bush's press secretary, Ari Fleicsher, is a Lubvaticher.
Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, and Sen. Joseph Lieberman, the
former candidate for the US Vice Presidency, have all publicly declared
their support for Chabad Lubavitch.
As already mentioned, it was the North American Aerospace Defense Command,
NORAD, that almost certainly sent the remotely controlled jets to crash
into their targets on 9-11. Sen. Carl Levin is chairman of the Senate
Armed Services Committee. And it was Sen. Carl Levin's committee that
listened to the testimony of Vice-Chairman of the JCS, Gen. Richard Myers,
and NORAD Commander Ralph Eberhart after 9-11, and allowed them to
bob and weave, and lie, lie, lie.
Can you imagine trying to pull off 9-11 without having Levin in your pocket?
Oh, yes, I should have mentioned -- Levin is a supporter of Chabad Lubavitch.
Of course Levin's Senate hearings were a set up. Levin knows who pulled
off 9-11. Levin knows whose interests 9-11 serves.
And it is significant that NORAD's second-in command on 9-11, Canadian Lt.
Gen. Ken Pennie, contradicted the testimony Myers and Eberhart gave to Levin.
Did you know that the Undersecretary and Comptroller of the Department of
Defense, Dov Zakheim, is an ordained Orthodox Jewish rabbi, and that he,
too, openly supports Chabad Lubavitch?
9-11 CHABAD LUBAVITCH BASH
In fact, on March 11, 2002, 500 emissaries of Chabad Lubavitch from all
over the world gathered opposite the Pentagon 9-11 crash site and held a
birthday kickoff celebration of their late guru, Rabbi Menachem Mandel Schneerson.
The birthday celebration kickoff was combined with a "memorial service"
for those who died at the Pentagon on 9-11. The rabbis acting as masters
of ceremony for the event sang a Jewish religious song, "Oseh Shalom," along
with -- of course -- "God Bless America." You expected they would leave
If you search google.com on the terms "Oseh Shalom" and "lyrics," you will
discover a number of translations similar to this one: "May he who makes
peace in high places, make peace for us and for all Israel, and let us say,
Officially, the 9-11 terrorism had nothing to do with Israel. Nothing
at all. Factually, however, the dream of Jewish world domination had
everything in common with events since the 9-11 catastrophe. By this
war, the Jewish supremacy movement hopes the US will annihilate Islam.
Islam is the most vigorous religious rival to Judaism.
How does the "peace for Israel" sung about in "Oseh Shalom" relate to 9-11?
Think back to the massive slaughter of Palestinians (and other Muslims)
Israel has been able to effect since 9 11. There is no sweeter peace to
be found than at the graveyard of one's enemy . . .
Rabbi Dov Zakheim took some time off his DoD duties on March 11, 2002,
to speak at the Chabad Lubavitch event. He called America the "greatest
country in the world" (you expected something different?) and then
"delivered a dvar Torah (sermon), expounding on the halachic (Jewish law)
requirements of a poor man bringing a meal offering in the Temple."
Now that's an important theme to bring up at a memorial service, isn't it?
It gives a clear indication of where the Lubavitchers' attention was focussed.
Remember, this dude is the DoD Comptroller and Undersecretary for Defense.
THEORY AND PRACTICE OF TALMUDIC LAW
"And just as we may not rescue them from a fire, so may we not rescue them
from a collapse [of debris] or from water or from anything that may destroy
Those words are from the Babylonian Talmud (the fundamental holy book of
Judaism), Tractate Sabbath. Chapter XVI (115a) begins with a condemnation
of all holy scriptures from other religions, in particular the scriptures
of Christians ("minim"):
"R[abbi] Tarfon said: May I bury my son if I would not burn them together
with their Divine Names if they came to my hand."
continues through a tirade against Christians personally:
"For even if one pursued me to slay me, or a snake pursued me to bite me,
I would enter a heathen Temple [for refuge], but not the houses of these
[people], for the latter know [of God] yet deny [Him], whereas the former
are ignorant and deny [Him] . . ."
and culminates (in 116a) with this:
"R[abbi] Ishmael said: . . . these, who stir up jealousy,
enmity, and wrath between Israel and their Father in Heaven, how much more
so; and of them David said, Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee?
And am I not grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate
them with a perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies. And just
as we may not rescue them from a fire, so may we not rescue them from a
collapse [of debris] or from water or from anything that may destroy them."
Who is the "them" referred to in Sabbath 116a? "Them" are Israel's
WHY FBI TOOK CONTROL
OF PENTAGON WAR ZONE
Now, perhaps, you can understand why the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff and his junior officers abandoned their responsibilities on September
11. Now, perhaps, we can understand why the FBI was put in charge
of the war zone at the Pentagon on 9-11. The FBI is an arm of Israel.
Assigning the FBI to "secure" the Pentagon would ensure that Army/Navy personnel
not pleasing to Israel were liquidated while a plausible explanation for
their deaths was publicly established. Assigning the FBI to "secure"
the Pentagon would ensure that incriminating Army/Navy military intelligence
documents fall directly into Israeli hands.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN
OF THE US ARMED SERVICES:
What of the noble goals of our country? You now work for a regime
that would wipe those noble goals from the face of the earth, even from
the face of history.
Do you really want to risk your lives wiping out your fellow Gentiles so
that all Gentiles may become slaves of the Jews?
When will your turn come to be slaughtered for political convenience, just
as your comrades in the Pentagon were slaughtered on 9-11?
Is this the military you intend to support? And if not, what are you going
to do about it?
Footnote 1. The iron seal of approval from the Smithsonian Institution
has worked all the magic required of it. Several months ago, an attorney
contacted this writer. His client was implicated by evidence offered
by one of those who committed fraud on the Davidian autopsies.
The fraud in those autopsy reports was as clear as a bell to this attorney.
He wanted to know if anyone had legally challenged the reports; such a recorded
challenge might help his client. I had to report to him that since
their release in 1993, not one single solitary soul in the medical examiner/forensic
community had challenged them. To challenge the autopsies, stamped
as they were with the Smithsonian/FBI imprimatur, would mean career suicide.
More on Waco Wayne's faked "rescue" attempt of the Davidians on April 19,
1993. It was inept, to say the least. Tee Vee cameras on site
that day picked up:
- One of the Special Ops arsonists casually watching the fire from a rooftop,
casually jumping off the roof and landing on his feet, casually taking off
a fire hood he was wearing, and casually walking to awaiting tanks,
Tanks pushing crime scene evidence at the burning Mt. Carmel Center into
Soldiers using flame throwers on the grounds of the Mt. Carmel Center,
Uniformed Marines at the site,
Uniformed members of the 10th Mountain Division at the site, wearing their
maroon berets. Their distinctive unit patches were clearly visible.
Indianapolis attorney Linda Thompson put this footage into her Waco videos
and distributed them all over the country. That caused an uproar.
Thompson's videos left the official Waco fall guy -- Janet Reno -- severely
embarrassed. A reliable and well placed source told this writer late
in 1995 that Downing's subsequent and consistent lying to Reno and the DoJ
concerning the details of the massacre had created a groundswell of resentment
against him, and that Downing was going to be forced to "retire." Indeed,
this came to pass. Waco Wayne "retired" in 1996. (Look in Usenet
archives for this writer's 1996 posting.) Here is the Tampa Tribune's March
1, 1996 article on Waco Wayne's "retirement" and his replacement with Shelton.
If you need any further evidence that the Waco Holocaust served Israel's
purposes, visit the ADL website and put the words "Linda Thompson" into
the ADL search engine. You will find ADL denunciations of Thompson,
almost 10 years after the event, an event that (ostensibly) had nothing
to do with Israel or the Jews. (We've cached the pages.)
As mentioned above, Tee Vee cameras picked up members of the 10th Mountain
Division, clearly identifiable in their maroon berets and distinctive unit
patches, at Waco on April 19. Recently the (New York) Ithaca Journal
published an article in which the Journal interviewed a 10th Mountain Division
soldier upon his return from Afghanistan. The soldier, Private Matt
Guckenheimer, was quoted thus:
"'We were told there were no friendly forces,' said Guckenheimer, an assistant
gunner with the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum. 'If there was
anybody there, they were the enemy. We were told specifically that
if there were women and children to kill them.'" ("Fresh memories
of war," The Ithaca Journal, May 25, 2002
The publication of Guckenheimer's remarks ruffled some feathers. On
May 31, Guckenheimer wrote a letter to the Ithaca Journal to "clarify" his
remarks. The letter was published on June 4.
The heart of Guckenheimer's clarification was this:
" . . . if those women and children showed hostile intent,
we were ordered to kill them as hostile forces, just like any other hostile
force we encountered . . ." (
It would, of course, be the individual soldier, going house to house in
besieged Afghan villages, who determined "hostile intent." Running
away, giving the soldier a dirty look, or giving the soldier the finger,
could be interpreted as "hostile intent," of course. In other words,
each soldier was given a cart blanche to kill women and children at his
Pvt. Gluckenheimer added:
"However, this does not mean that we were ordered to slaughter noncombatants
such as babies."
