The causes officially given for the incidents are not a sufficient explanation for what actually happened on that day, especially as regards the logistics of this highly sophisticated operation and the very advanced infrastructure required for it.As Bush hangs by a thread, there is a list of indictments for which he could hang later. As the Bush 'vision thing' crashes and burns, an increasingly tiny band of loud mouthed GOP cultists, deniers of science and logic, born again believers in fairy tales and miracles are left only their loud mouths and astounding intellectual challenges. I am referring, of course, to gullible folk whose ancestors most certainly burned witches in Europe and hanged them at Salem. In other words, the born again believers in Bush's 'official conspiracy theory of 911'. It makes no sense to believe a man about one thing when he has told nothing but lies about everything else. What makes 911 different? As Dr. Hans Koechler points out, it has become 'politically correct dogma'. As Ronald Reagan's 'trickle down theory' and 'fundamentalist Christianity' has done for 'true believers', the 'official conspiracy theory of 911, relieves its 'true believers' of responsibility for their 'sins' and places it with a 'rag tag band' of 'evil terrorists'. The GOP's faith in the 911 orthodoxy has become a secular religion, akin to their unquestioned belief in Christianity, a faith --not a science --in which they are relieved of responsibility, forgiven all sins in exchange for merely believing a 'dogma' for which there is not a shred of logic or fact in support. The 'terrorists' have become Christ-like. They have borne America's collective guilt and died for our sins. The good news is that we true skeptics have won this debate. Our case is logical and precise. As the case against Bush grows stronger, that of Bush's authoritarian officialists grows more desperate, its partisans more shrill and nonsensical. When freepers, GOP hypocrites and 'bitter enders' descend into utter lunacy, the debate is over. We win! Among the more absurd fallacies indulged by Bush apologists is an attempt to 'spin' the Bush administration's refusal to release all the photos taken of whatever it was that crashed into the Pentagon. The attempt ignores the fact that the photos were ordered seized by the Bush administration. With absurd circular fallacies, Bush officialists criticize 'us' for not having seen the photos. That, of course, is precisely the problem and precisely our complaint. The photos, evidence of a crime, were not released, in fact, covered-up in an act of obstruction of justice --a felony! There is the very real possibility that all have been destroyed by now. Missing the point and mistaking conclusions for premises, however, is to be expected from a political wing that most surely has more idiots in it than is statistically normal! Another idiocy typical of Bush partisans involves what firefighters called a 'punch out' hole in the inner ring. Bush kiss ups, in a masterpiece of circular logic, claim that the hole cannot be evidence of a missile because, uh... 'there is no evidence of a missile.' That this is said with a straight face is evidence of the utter failure of the American educational system. A theory --even stupid 'official theories' that are handed top from the top --must account for every observed phenomenon. What Johnny Cochran said of a glove can be said of every theory: if it does not fit, you must acquit! The 'official theory' fails that very first and critical test. Just as Newtonian physics cannot account for the slowing of clocks at near light speeds, the official conspiracy theory of 911 does not, cannot explain the Pentagon punch-out hole, an observed phenomenon of which photos were made. Contrary to what Bush officialists would have you believe, the 'hole' is evidence of something and that 'something' is not a 757, of which there is nary a scrap. Besides --Bush's brigade of official conspiracy theorists have stated on this blog that 757 airliners --made of aluminum --simply vaporized, that is, turned into a gas upon hitting the Pentagon outer wall at some 530 MPH. Lunacy! The official conspiracy theorists simply cannot get their stories straight. Did the 757 vaporize? Or did it manage to shrink sufficiently to create and 'get through' the tiny punch out hole in the inner ring? Or --are we to believe that the hole has nothing to do with whatever it was that hit the Pentagon? Perhaps, the hole is a portal into another dimension, the Twilight Zone, where airliners turn into gasses, where evidence of something is evidence of nothing, and Alice is expected to believe six impossible things before breakfast. Though 911 is the GOP's last redoubt, I suspect Bush's warning of new terrorist attacks that would make 911 'pale by comparison' didn't 'test' well by GOP poll takers and spin-meisters. The pollsters should have interviewed Rudy Giuliani. As Guiliani's failed candidacy proves, the 'good ol' days' when a GOP candidate need only raise the specter of impossible tower collapses to stampede a gullible public are gone. Having lied about everything else, odds are Bush will never tell the truth about 911. But, if Guiliani's experience is worth anything, we might look forward to hearing less GOP demagoguery about 911. Trolls, however, have hot yet gotten the memo. The bullshit brigades are even more annoying than a Ron Paul supporter at a precious metals convention. Certainly, platitudes and fear tactics have a finite shelf life.
Instead of dealing with the contradictions and inconsistencies in the official version of events and the numerous gaps in terms of the factual information, a "dogma of political correctness" has been promulgated according to which 19 Islamic-inspired Arab hijackers, directed by an elusive "Al-Qaeda" ("base"), succeeded in carrying out the atrocities all by themselves.--Scoop, Dr. Hans Koechler: 9/11 may have been an insider job
[T]he towers came straight down. Accordingly, the official theory, by implying that fire produced collapses that perfectly mimicked the collapses that have otherwise been produced only by precisely placed explosives, requires a miracle. While only controlled demolitions are known to have exhibited the observed nature of the towers' falls, other experts, of differing backgrounds, find other fatal flaws in the official conspiracy theory. Dr. Hans Koechler has recently called the 'official conspiracy' theory a "dogma of political correctness", characterizing the 'official theory' as one in which "19 Islamic-inspired Arab hijackers, directed by an elusive "Al-Qaeda" ("base"), succeeded in carrying out the atrocities all by themselves." But, of course, being superstition, it doesn't matter to Bush's ever dwindling base that none of the 'hijackers' were accomplished Cessna pilots. Miraculously, they flew airliners with impossible precision. The official conspiracy theory is a fairy tale told to gullible goppers to make them feel better about being greedy, self-absorbed goppers for whom America is superior to an inferior world. The official theory relieves them of all responsibility for GOP policies which have over a period of at least 30 years made terrorism worse. [See:Terrorism is Worse Under GOP Regimes] If the 'official conspiracy theory' had been designed to dull critical thinking abilities, it succeeded. An update:
--Why the Official Account Cannot Be True, David Ray Griffin
A structural engineer who was a member of the team assembled by the American Society of Civil Engineers to investigate the World Trade Center site after 9/11 has described numerous phenomena indicating extremely high temperatures suffered by the WTC structural steel. This appears to be further evidence that high-temperature explosives, such as thermate, were used to bring down the towers.- Advertisement -
Dr. Abolhassan Astaneh-Asl is a professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of California at Berkeley, who specializes in studying structural damage done by earthquakes and terrorist bombings. He flew to New York on September 19, 2001 to conduct a two-week reconnaissance of the collapsed towers, hoping to gain an understanding of how they'd come down. He was able to examine numerous pieces of steel taken from Ground Zero.
