Robert Fisk on 9 11
Video: False Flag Operations
Robert Fisk, in The Independemt, 25 August 2007, writes the following about 9 11:
Robert Fisk: Even I question the 'truth' about 9/11
1. Where are the aircraft parts (engines, etc) from the attack on the Pentagon?
2. Why have the officials involved in the United 93 flight (which crashed in Pennsylvania) been muzzled?
3. Why did flight 93's debris spread over miles when it was supposed to have crashed in one piece in a field?
4. If it is true, for example, that kerosene burns at 820 C under optimum conditions, how come the steel beams of the twin towers – whose melting point is supposed to be about 1,480 C – would snap through at the same time? (They collapsed in 8.1 and 10 seconds.)
5. What about the third tower – the so-called World Trade Centre Building 7 (or the Salmon Brothers Building) – which collapsed in 6.6 seconds in its own footprint at 5.20pm on 11 September? Why did it so neatly fall to the ground when no aircraft had hit it?
6. The CIA's list of Arab suicide-hijackers... included three men who were – and still are – very much alive and living in the Middle East...
7. What about the weird letter allegedly written by Mohamed Atta, the Egyptian hijacker-murderer with the spooky face, whose "Islamic" advice to his gruesome comrades – released by the CIA – mystified every Muslim friend I know in the Middle East? Atta mentioned his family – which no Muslim, however ill-taught, would be likely to include in such a prayer. He reminds his comrades-in-murder to say the first Muslim prayer of the day and then goes on to quote from it. But no Muslim would need such a reminder – let alone expect the text of the "Fajr" prayer to be included in Atta's letter.
Some points that Robert Fisk did not mention:
1. The 'hijackers' apparently trained at US military bases. Five of the alleged 9/11 hijackers received training at secure US military bases. (MSNBC) "Terrorists in the September 11 attacks received training at secure US military bases, a Defense Department spokesman admitted in an interview Friday." Three days after the WTC disaster, Newsweek and the Washington Post reported that 3 of the hijackers had listed their address as the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida.
2. David Ray Griffin and Michael Meacher are among a very large number of famous people who believe that the official version of 9 11 is wrong. According to David Ray Griffin, several witnesses saw two F-16s tailing Flight 93 minutes before it went down.
3. Daniel Hopsicker has referred to the fact that Atta learnt to fly at Venice Florida airfield which apparently has links to CIA operations and operatives.
4. Operation Northwoods . In 1962 the US military's 'Operation Northwoods' was a plan to commit terror acts in US cities, kill innocent people, hijack airplanes, and blame all this on Cuba. (ABC, Natl Security Archives) . 9 11 appears to copy Northwoods.
5. Odigo. On 9/11, employees at Israeli instant messaging company Odigo received text message warnings about attacks 2 hours prior. (Haaretz, Washington Post)
6. Larry Silverstein was absent from his office on the North Tower's 88th floor because of a 'doctors appointment' along with his two kids who were 'running late'. (NY Magazine, NY Observer)
7. Janitor William Rodriguez. In the WTC 1 basement he heard an explosion below him; then the plane crashed above him seconds later; then he saw a severely burnt man come out of a basement elevator. (CNN)
8. Pentagon. The Pentagon crash happened right in the middle of the only section being renovated to bolster it against an attack. This severely limited damage and loss of life. (USA Today, Army)
9. Afghanistan. In July 2001, the US was planning to invade Afghanistan by Oct 2001 (BBC, Guardian).
10. Osama. Osama bin Laden had ties to the CIA (MSNBC). In July 2001, Osama had medical treatment at the American Hospital in Dubai and was met by the local CIA chief (Le Figaro and French State Radio). On Sept 10, Osama had kidney dialysis at a Pakistani military hospital in which a "secret team" replaced regular urology staff. (CBS). On 9 11 2001 , 'Frank Carlucci of the Carlyle group was involved in a meeting with representatives of the bin Laden family'. The Bush and bin Laden families are old business partners (BBC Newsnight)
