9/11: How many virtual proofs does it take to turn on the 9/11 light bulb in people's minds? A keep it simple approach.
(Note: This is a work in progress that will likely change somewhat as I receive suggestions, if I do. I have already made a couple of changes since this was first posted. Those changes have been referenced in the comments.)
As I wrote the following, I asked myself if this is simple enough for Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Ron Paul and John McCain to understand?; is it simple enough for my Representative and Senator to understand?; is it simple enough for writers and editors in the media to understand?; is it simple enough for Tim Russert, Chris Matthews, Bill Maher, and Keith Olberman to understand?; is it simple enough for Arianna Huffington, Matt Drudge, and Christoper Hitchens to understand?; is it simple enough for Brian Williams, Charles Gibson, and Katie Couric to understand?; is it simple enough for Lou Dobbs, John McLaughlin, and 60 Minutes to understand?; is it simple enough for Joe Scarborough, Willie Geist, Glen Beck, and Alan Colmes to understand?; is it simple enough for my neighbors, my fellow workers, my friends to understand?; is it simple enough for a sensible junior high schooler to understand?; is it simple enough for a common sensical 10-year-old to understand?; is it simple enough for me to understand (I hope so)?
Following are examples of events of 9/11 that by themselves virtually prove the Official Story of 9/11 to be a lie. The Official Story of course, is that 19 Islamic hijackers caused the death and destruction on 9/11. I use the word "virtually" because some people offer implausible or highly improbable alternative explanations. And if taken by themselves, it is possible that an implausible or highly improbable explanation or two could be true. However, I contend that many of the following examples by themselves actually DO prove the Official Story to be a lie. To believe the Official Story, one must believe virtually ALL of the implausible or improbable explanations. For if only one support for the Official Story is proven to be false, the whole Story begins to crumble. And mind you, these are NOT isolated events. They are all major parts of the Official Story. So, like a veterinarian examining a sick puppy, ALL symptoms -- in this case, events -- must be considered in the diagnosis. The veterinarian can perhaps explain away a single symptom or two, but you are not going to be happy if he tries to explain away all of the many symptoms that are ailing your dog. After all, its your puppy dog; or in this case, your country and your disappearing rights; or your relative or friend that was killed on 9/11; or your maimed or dead brother/sister/mother/father/son/daughter in Iraq or Afghanistan; or a sick or dying First Responder; or....or....or....
The following list is quite simple and straightforward; but by no means, all inclusive:
1. Given the fact that there was not much airplane debris found at the Pentagon and the best explanation the Official Story can come up with is that most of the large 757 airliner vaporized; yet the Official Story claims they were able to identify each and every passenger and crew member through UNvaporized DNA -- NONE with an Arab sounding name; then this alone virtually proves the Official Story to be a lie.
2. Given that the Official Story requires that a 125 foot wide 757 made only a 16 to 20 foot wide hole when it hit the Pentagon; and given that NIST claims that the airplanes that hit the Twin Towers severed massive interior steel columns after severing the perimeter steel columns; yet the wings, tail section, and massive engines were not able to penetrate the reinforced concrete walls of the Pentagon, something doesn't add up. Therefore, this alone virtually proves the Official Story to be a lie.
3. As flight data recorders (FDRs) accurately record flight data -- if the FDR is damaged, data is destroyed, not altered -- and the FDR recorded (data provided by the NTSB/government) that the 757 that allegedly hit the Pentagon actually flew on a different track (as corroborated by witnesses at the time including Pentagon policemen) than the Official Story requires; and that same FDR recorded the 757 never being low enough to hit the Pentagon; then something ELSE must have hit the Pentagon. The only video released was five frames and definitely did NOT show a 757. It showed something much smaller and looked more like either a missile or a Global Hawk, an unmanned aerial vehicle. This smaller flying object is consistent with the smallish hole created on impact and with the little amount of "airplane" debris that was recovered. These facts alone virtually prove the Official Story to be a lie.
4. The fact that both Twin Towers collapsed in symmetrically identical fashion even though the South Tower was hit very significantly off-center means something other than straight forward gravitational collapses were at work. That alone virtually proves the Official Story to be a lie.
5. The fact that the top section of EACH Twin Tower was able to plow its way symmetrically through the ENTIRE 80-90 stories below about as quickly as if it had fallen through thin air is alone enough to virtually prove the Official Story to be a lie.
6. There were many people including firemen who reported that molten metal was seen below all three (one not hit by an airplane) buildings that collapsed on 9/11. And there is a LOT of corroborating evidence in support of there being molten metal below the rubble such as extremely high temperatures recorded on NASA thermal maps and pictures of extremely hot orange/white hot steel. Only one thing could account for "flowing" molten metal: thermite. Evidence of thermite at ground zero was found. There would be no reason for the existence of thermite at the sites other than it being the reason for the molten metal. If there was molten metal underneath any -- much less all three as was reported -- of the three buildings that collapsed on 9/11 as reported by firemen and others as "flowing like lava" for many weeks, then for the Official Story to be true there must be a scientific explanation for its existence that does not belie the Official Story. Since there is no such scientific explanation, that alone virtually proves the Official Story to be a lie.
7. Physical laws -- the kinds of laws Isaac Newton discovered and which govern our universe --were violated on 9/11: The law of falling objects following the paths of least resistance; the law of conservation of momentum; the law of conservation of angular momentum. According to conservation-of-momentum laws, the block of approximately 34 floors on top of the South Tower should have continued to topple and fall through the path of least resistance: the air. It should have continued to topple and fall to the ground far outside the building's footprint and NOT through the path of most resistance: the building itself. That same block which can be seen twisting at the start of the collapse should have kept twisting and obeyed the law of conservation of angular momentum but the rotation suddenly stopped. The stopping of both its rotation and its "toppling" can only be explained by the breakup of most of the block, which would have destroyed its moment of inertia. But there is no good explanation for the upper block to break up at the start of the collapse; unless of course, it was being broken up in a purposeful way as in a controlled demolition. This violation of physical laws alone virtually proves that the Official Story is a lie.
8. Evidence has shown that nearly all of the concrete in both Twin Towers was pulverized into dust and powder, with a very large percentage of this being fine micron sized particles, as small as 0.2 microns. Since there is no mechanism in a simple gravity collapse to apply the energy in the perfectly even manner required to pulverize nearly all of the concrete into fine powder, microns thick, something else must have been taking place. And even if nearly all of the potential gravitational energy was actually released in the perfectly even fashion required and actually was being converted -- no longer being gravitational energy -- into FINE FLOATING powder, where was the energy required to plow through the ENTIRE Towers at nearly free-fall speed? The gravitational energy had been converted into floating powder. And as anyone would know, fine floating powder floats, and doesn't push down very hard. This isn't rocket science. It really is very simple; just ask any 10 year old with common sense. Floating powder doesn't crush massive buildings, much less at nearly free-fall speed. This alone virtually proves the Official Story to be a lie.
9. WTC7, a steel-framed building collapsed on 9/11 even though it was not hit by an airplane. The 47 story tall building collapased in a perfectly symmetrical fashion on 9/11. In fact you can put a ruler on the screen as you view the collapse and it comes PERFECTLY STRAIGHT DOWN ON A LINE! The collapse exhibited every single characteristic of a controlled demolition; or perhaps better said, a finely produced implosion. And there was not a single characteristic of destruction by fire; much less asymmetrical fire or even asymmetrical damage. In fact, neither governmental agency, NIST nor FEMA has been able to figure out how fires could have caused the collapse. WTC7 was a TALL, NARROW, massively braced steel-framed building. For such a TALL, NARROW building to come down in such a precisely symmetrical fashion -- vs. falling off to the side -- and DIRECTLY into its own footprint at about the speed of a falling brick; common sense would say that would be impossible; unless of course, it had a lot of demolition help.
There were even multiple reports of a countdown (as in 5..4..3..2..1.. explosions, collapse) heard over radios that ended with large explosions followed by the collapse. What does that tell you? That tells you they knew the exact second WTC7 was going to collapse. That can only mean they knew exactly what second they were going to "push the button" to start the controlled demolition. There are other factors easily researched that also show prior knowledge that WTC7 was about to come down.
Molten metal was observed below WTC7. That fact cannot be explained away other than in terms of a substance like thermite (evidence of which was found in the rubble) which melts metal like a scalding frying pan liquifies warm butter and is used in demolitions of steel-framed buildings.
Even Mr. Silverstein who had leased and insured all of the WTC buildings just weeks prior to 9/11 said later on PBS that he told them to "pull" (a demolition term) WTC7. An example of the use of this term happened just prior to demolishing WTC6 after 9/11: a worker in a hard hat can be seen and heard saying, "they're gettin' ready to pull buildin' six." Larry Silverstein subsequently collected several billions of dollars for his destroyed buildings.
Now put all of these things together -- there are more -- and see how contorted one's reasoning would have to be to not understand WTC7 was a controlled demolition. The collapse of WTC7 alone virtually proves the Official Story to be a lie.
10. Two hijacker's passports survived the aircraft crashes on 9/11 as well as a hijacker's bandana. One of the passports was from a plane that impacted one of the Twin Towers and was found on the streets below. The passport came away unscathed from the violent crash and tremendous fireball. The other passport was found unscathed from the wreckage of the airplane that disappeared into the ground in Pennsylvania. The undamaged (looked just like new) red bandana was also found in the same wreckage of the airplane that disappeared into the ground. Each one surviving in such good condition is by itself nearly impossible. But what about ALL three? (Remember, all three items were central to "proving" that Muslim hijackers were responsible. These weren't random/miscellaneous findings.) Well, (one nearly impossible) times (another nearly impossible) times (another nearly impossible) = virtually NO chance at all. Now multiply "virtually no chance" by the chance that each item in this list could have happened the way the Official Story requires, and what do you get? How about virtual-ZERO. If the passports and bandana were planted at the scene, what is the chance of finding all three? 100%, of course. So virtual-zero% vs. 100%. This alone virtually proves the Official Story to be a lie.
11. The Transportation Secretary, Norman Minetta, testified that a young man came up to Mr. Cheney in the command bunker at about 9:25 AM on 9/11 -- the Pentagon was hit shortly after -- and said, "During the time that the airplane was coming in to the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the Vice President, "The plane is 50 miles out". . . . . "The plane is 30 miles out" . . . . ..And when it got down to "the plane is 10 miles out," the young man also said to the Vice President, "Do the orders still stand?" And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and said, "Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?" The only reasonable explanation is that the young man was asking if the orders to NOT shoot down the plane that the young man was referring to and was "10 miles out" from the Pentagon, "still stand," i.e., there were stand down orders. Add to this the fact there were no intercepts by military aircraft of any of the hijacked airplanes and normal protocol would have had the airplanes intercepted within minutes and is therefore consistent with stand down orders; it is reasonable to conclude there were in fact, stand down orders. This alone virtually proves that the Official Story is a lie.
12. To believe the Official Story one must believe that the five or more confusing PRACTICE exercises and war games that were occurring on 9/11 were mere coincidences. These confusing "exercises" weren't planned for 9/10 or 9/12; they were planned for 9/11. Those exercises included the simulation of hijacked airplanes crashing into buildings and confusing FALSE radar blips. And, while not on 9/11, those believers of the Official Story of the 7/7 London bombings in 2005, also have to believe that the practice anti-terrorist drills occurring at the same time as the actual bombings were a mere coincidence. At the very exact time, in the very exact places (multiple, and not on a different street or on a different subway or on a different bus), that the exercises were beginning to take place, real live bombs started exploding. So the trained officials and people were in position ahead of time to handle the resulting chaos that occurred, much the same as what happened on 9/11. So, the highly incredible unliklihood of such "pre-placing" of trained officials and people, and confusing radar blips, is much, MUCH more likely to NOT be a coincidence just as in the London bombings in which actuaries say the chances of that occurring is magnitudes 'off the charts', i.e., beyond virtually impossible. Keep in mind that these absolutely incredible coincidences occurred in two separate "terror" attacks. I say this coincidental occurrence of these two separate, absolutely mind boggling, coincidences should be called, "The Mother of All Coincidences!" (Perhaps they really weren't "separate" as they both occurred in the War On Terror.) Given that the much simpler explanation -- in accordance with Occam's razor -- would be that these actually were NOT coincidences and they are simply unbelievable, then this alone virtually proves the Official Story to be a lie.
13. It is highly probable that Barbara Olson never made those famous phone calls to her husband, Ted Olson. The FBI says there were no cell phone calls from Barbara. That combined with the fact that there apparently were NO onboard phones on the American Airlines' 757 means the calls could not have taken place. All of the available information indicates there were no onboard phones yet it is not absolutely conclusive. However, these doubts about the phone calls could easily be put to rest with a simple investigation to find out whether in fact there were onboard phones and checking phone records. (Actually, even IF there were onboard phones, there are many other reasons to doubt the phone calls actually took place. Those reasons have been clearly explained by both the Pilotsfor911truth and the scholar, David Ray Griffin.) But like everything else regarding 9/11, this simple thing goes un-investigated and the doubts are allowed to remain. And if a simple investigation were to prove the phone calls (which were front and center around which the Muslim hijackers-with-box-cutters myth was built) never took place as the evidence indicates was probably the case, that alone would virtually prove the Official Story to be a lie.
14. If the Official Story is true, there should be no reason for the government to hide anything. Given that NIST, a governmental agency, will not release the 6,899 photographs and over 300 hours of recordings acquired from mostly private parties and admits to holding; and given the fact that the FBI/government confiscated video recordings within MINUTES of the impact at the Pentagon that would have shown the 757 -- if it really was a 757 -- and those recording have never been released even though they could put doubts to rest; and given that there were many dozens of other cameras that would have shown the 757 -- if it indeed was a 757 -- hitting the Pentagon have never been released even though they could put doubts to rest; and given that they destroyed audio recordings made by FAA air traffic controllers to document what happened on 9/11; and given the fact that a large crate covered by a blue tarp was removed from the Pentagon and its contents never revealed; and given the fact they refuse to allow inspection of recovered aircraft parts that would positively identify all four of the aircraft via serial numbers even though that would put doubts to rest; and given the fact that the flight data recorders themselves would contain recorded flight information from previous flights made by the aircraft and could be used for positive identification of the aircraft, yet they refuse to release the data even though that would put doubts to rest; and given the fact that inspection of the steel columns would have revealed how the first collapses ever (there were THREE!) occurred for steel-framed buildings due to fire, yet they removed and shipped overseas nearly ALL of the steel columns in defiance of requests not to do so; and given the fact the Bush/Cheney administration tried very hard to prevent any investigation into 9/11; and given the fact that the 9/11 Commission both distorted and omitted highly incriminating evidence indicating the Official Story to be a lie; it must be concluded that they are hiding a lot of things and will allow the doubts to persist -- no doubt because they are afraid of the real Truth being revealed. Alone, this hiding of so many things by the government virtually proves the Official Story to be a lie.
15. The following is from an article by Paul Joseph Watson (note this information -- like nearly ALL 9/11 facts -- does not get reported by our main stream media here in the U.S.):
Former Italian President and the man who revealed the existence of Operation Gladio Francesco Cossiga has gone public on 9/11, telling Italy's most respected newspaper that the attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad and that this was common knowledge amongst global intelligence agencies.
Cossiga was elected President of the Italian Senate in July 1983 before winning a landslide 1985 election to become President of the country in 1985.
Cossiga gained respect from opposition parties as one of a rare breed - an honest politician - and led the country for seven years until April 1992.
Cossiga's tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian political establishment and he was forced to resign after revealing the existence of, and his part in setting up, Operation Gladio - a rogue intelligence network under NATO auspices that carried out bombings across Europe in the 60's, 70's and 80's.
Gladio's specialty was to carry out what they coined "false flag operations," terror attacks that were blamed on their domestic and geopolitical opposition.
Cossiga's revelations contributed to an Italian parliamentary investigation of Gladio in 2000, during which evidence was unearthed that the attacks were being overseen by the U.S. intelligence apparatus.
In March 2001, Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra stated, in sworn testimony, "You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force ... the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security."
Cossiga's new revelations appeared last week in Italy's oldest and most widely read newspaper, Corriere della Sera.
A translation from Italy's most respected newspaper of what Italy's ex-President said:
"[Bin Laden supposedly confessed] to the Qaeda September [attack] to the two towers in New York [claiming to be] the author of the attack of the 11, while all the [intelligence services] of America and Europe ... now know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the CIA American and the Mossad.... in order to put under accusation the Arabic Countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part ... in Iraq [and] Afghanistan."
If there is any truth to what Mr. Cossiga said about the CIA planning 9/11 -- and given that all of the proof/virtual proof above (#'s 1 through 14) and all of the other evidence not presented here is consistent with the article, there is very good reason to believe what the Italian ex-President said is true -- that alone would virtually prove that the Official Story is a lie.
There are more virtual proofs that could be added to this list of fifteen. For example, I could add:
16. President Bush claimed on at least two occasions that he watched the first airplane impact the North Tower just prior to entering the classroom where he saw fit to remain reading about a pet goat. He even gave specific recollections of what he was thinking when he watched the airplane hit the Tower. That is a good indication his recollection was clear and honest. Given that there was no "public" broadcast of the first crash, the only way he could have seen the first crash would have been if there was some sort of closed circuit broadcast. That would mean that the monitor was set up in the school specifically for viewing that specific event; which virtually could only mean that this alone proves the Official Story is a lie.
Or how about adding this one:
17) Here's one that just occurred to me. And this might be one of the most convincing of all. A lot of things happened on 9/11. So it should be no surprise that there may have been a few anomalies that were hard to reconcile. There should as well have been countless examples of things that were straightforwrd and easy to explain. BUT! IS THERE A SINGLE THING ABOUT 9/11 THAT IS NOT ANOMALOUS? IS THERE A SINGLE THING ABOUT 9/11 THAT IS NOT LACED WITH DOUBT? (There may be but I can't think of anything. Offer them up in the comments.) This fact alone virtually proves the Official Story to be one big fat LIE!
I think this list could be used as a simple way to turn on some 9/11 light bulbs in more people's heads. This list can be handed or sent to anyone to read and thereby relieve yourself of the often agonizing exercise of trying to actually get people to listen. Its quite simple and for the most part, pretty easy to understand. And its a lot easier and quicker than reading a book or watching a long video or reading lengthy articles online about one specific aspect of 9/11. Then, once the bulb starts to light up, all of those other things can be used to nail the Truth home. This is similar to the cards that list a number of 9/11 facts; however, this list gives more detailed substance without being too long. Therefore, it should be even more convincing.
Presenting this fairly simple list ought to be enough to at least start opening the eyes and minds for all but the most closed minded. Tell people to be empirical; to look at the facts. Tell them not to get caught up in it being labeled a "conspiracy theory;" why would they kill innocent Americans; how would they have done it; and how would they hide such a seemingly large conspiracy. Tell them that just because they don't hear about this in the media, that doesn't mean its not true. Tell them they may find themselves asking "if its this simple and apparently so obvious, why doesn't everyone know?" Tell them the reason everyone doesn't know is primarily because not enough have actually looked at the facts; but more and more people everyday -- take the Japanese Parliament for example -- are indeed looking at the facts and understanding the Official Story is one great big LIE. Tell them the bigger the lie, the more easily people are fooled. Tell them that the Patriotic thing to do is question your government when it deserves to be questioned. Tell them the founding fathers of our country said the hard part will be holding on to the liberties we have given them; liberties must not be taken for granted. Tell them there are thousands of patriotsfor911truth, physicistsfor911truth, architechturalengineersfor911truth, veteransfor911truth, pilotsfor911truth, scholarsfor911truth, canadiensfor911truth, Irishfor911truth, Scottsfor911truth, Newfoundlandersfor911truth, Australiansfor911truth, people and scientists and politicians from all around the world for 911truth. Tell them the truth about 911 is being debated in the Japanese Parliament.
Have people ask themselves these questions:
1) Why would so many highly respected people, including so many highly respected people from around the globe, spend so much time trying to get out what they believe is the truth about 9/11 if there wasn't a damn good reason to believe the Official Story is a lie?
2) Why does the main stream media in the United States virtually ignore all of the evidence and other incriminating information that many other countries around the world recognize?
3) Why do so many obvious, and what should be easily answered questions, go un-addressed?
4) Who is it that has restricted many of our constitutional rights and liberties, al Qaeda or our own government?
5) We are being told we need to have our constitutional rights restricted and taken away in order to protect us; yet they could not protect us on 9/11 in spite of the fact they had a multitude of warnings including from within our own intelligence agencies and other governments; including Britain, France, Italy, Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Russia. Some of the warnings were "dire" and some were specific about the possibility of terrorists using hijacked airplanes as weapons. There was also the now famous presidential daily briefing given to George Bush titled "Bin Ladin Determined To Strike Within the United States." Even given so many warnings (including warnings of using hijacked airplanes as weapons), George Bush claimed when he 'saw' the first airplane hit the Tower he thought it was a terrible "accident;" it didn't even occur to him that it might be a terrorist attack. So the question people should be asking themselves: Is protecting us the real reason they want to spy on U.S. citizens?
6) If there are so many people who have so many doubts, and if our government (shadow, secret, or otherwise) has nothing to hide, why not have an honest and independent investigation to put all of the doubts to rest?
