11 September 2001. 19 years ago, today. Our thoughts go out to all those who were, and still are affected by the tragedy.
Like the death of JFK for an earlier generation, anyone who experienced that event knows exactly where they were when it happened.
I was living in an apartment in Bondi at the time. My housemate and I were watching Hoop Dreams, a doco about American kids trying to make their way to the NBA — the basketball big league in the US.
It was around 11pm on Tuesday evening. One of our friends called and told us to switch over to the news. I remember seeing vision of the Twin Towers, one of them with black smoke billowing from the top.
And the rest, as they say, is history…
That moment changed the world. Irrevocably. And the scars remain to this day.
And 19 years after 9/11, there are still a number of highly troubling questions about the attacks on New York that haven’t been addressed. I doubt they ever will be.
And in the age of COVID, where heartless and deceitful politicians incite fear to divide their citizens and keep them compliant, it’s worth remembering these people are not in power for your benefit. It is only for theirs.
With that in mind, here are just a few questions about that fateful day that remain unanswered…
Why were no military jets scrambled to intercept the aircraft? The first flight lost contact with air traffic controllers at 8:15am, 30 minutes before it hit the north tower.
The second flight veered off course at 8:42am, 21 minutes before it hit the south tower. And Flight 77 veered off course at 8:46am, nearly an hour before it hit the Pentagon.
Are we expected to believe that the greatest military force on Earth couldn’t respond in the timeframes given?
And why did the Federal Aviation Administration destroy recordings of New York’s air traffic controllers on duty that day?
Why was there a big increase in put options bought on the two airlines involved, United Airlines and American Airlines, reinsurance companies Munich Re and AXA, and a surge in call options on weapons manufacturer Raytheon?
Put options are a bet on a falling share price while call options are a bet on a rising share price. That’s some coincidence, no?
If you want more unanswered questions, check this out. It’s tragically funny. It makes you realise governments are not in the business of telling the truth.
OK. Things smell pretty fishy right about now. But the real stinker came later in the afternoon.
At 5:20pm, World Trade Centre building seven (WTC 7) collapsed. The official story is that this 47-story tower collapsed due to burning fires, which in turn resulted from the earlier collapse of the Twin Towers.
As many independent experts have said, if that was the case, it’s the first modern skyscraper in history to execute a perfect collapse from a fire. And if you watch WTC 7 come down, it looks very much like a controlled explosion. You can check it out, here.
If you’re still sceptical, then perhaps this might get you over the line…
A number of news networks reported the collapse of WTC 7…before it actually occurred! You can view the details of that here. Note, some of the videos are ‘no longer available’. But you’ll get the gist of it. Which is…
The BBC and other networks reported on the collapse of WTC 7 around 25 minutes before it happened!
How could that be?
Have you heard about Operation Mockingbird? It was set up by the CIA in the 1950s to ensure the mainstream media (MSM) is on board with the official government directive narrative. By and large, we only read about what they want us to hear.
On September 11 there was obviously a lot of communication between government agencies and the MSM. My guess is that someone stuffed up and sent the memo to the media about WTC 7 too early. How else could they report on it before it happened?
In 2008, the National Institute of Standards and Technology issued a report stating that science backed up the claim that WTC 7 collapsed due to fire. A year later, David Ray Griffin, an authority on the subject, debunked this view in his book, The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7.
A review of the book by Richard Gage, a member of the American Institute of Architects, stated:
‘David Ray Griffin has provided a comprehensive dismantling of NIST’s theory about WTC 7, according to which it suffered global collapse because of ordinary building fires. Besides showing that NIST committed massive scientific fraud, Griffin also points out that NIST was able to complete its theory only by affirming a miracle: a steel-framed high-rise building coming down in free fall even though explosives had not been used to remove its columns.’
Why was WTC 7 demolished? What was in there that was convenient to destroy that day?
I don’t know the answer to that. But the whole thing stinks. And the fact that the MSM didn’t hold the government to account over these glaring questions gives you an idea of their complicity.
This is why I often put the boot into the mainstream media. Their agenda is for the 1%, not for you or me.
It’s a sad day for the people of New York and the US. We are thinking of you…
