Ground Zero Mosque, Quran burnings, Steven Spielberg and the war for 9/11 Reality

Pro-Israel activists and Zionist dupes celebrate a Muslim blood libel

Under the Radar Media

In the months to the run-up of the 9th anniversary of 9/11, two contrived controversies were coordinated and artificially implanted in the American conscious by the US Zionist establishment, henceforth referred to as the mainstream media/banking/military complex. These controversies unleashed a Pavlovian wave of irrational sentiment and anti-Muslim hysteria in America that was just as bad, or worse, the days and weeks following the attacks. The two controversies were of course, the Cordoba Initiative AKA the “Ground Zero Mosque” proposal, and the decision of a previously unknown church in Gainesville to burn copies of the Muslim’s holy book, the Quran, in a 9/11 anniversary protest. In a sane country with an open and honest media, these two non-stories would have been relegated to “human interests” segments of the 6:00PM local nightly news and then quickly forgotten about after a week or so. Instead, they were given by-the-minute coverage on all news outlets including television, radio and internet.          

In one fell swoop, the mainstream media/banking/military complex not only managed to distract the nation from critical issues by hyping these two insignificant stories, they managed to re-ignite the flag waving, pro-war, faux patriot sentiment that many Americans had after the terror attacks of 9/11. They’ve also re-introduced the idea of a Zionist-inspired “clash of civilizations;” a hate-fest where through the influence of the media and black propaganda, Christians and Muslims are pit against one another in hopes that they will fight each other to the death. But most importantly, the anti-Muslim hysteria was key in reinforcing the thoroughly discredited, 585 page science fiction bestseller known as the Official 9/11 Commission Report, which upholds that 19 Muslim hijackers carried out the 9/11 attacks.          

Dr. Phillip Zelikow's international science fiction bestseller


It was a masterful stroke: the official government account of 9/11 was suddenly validated once again without question, as if there had never been any concerns of the veracity of the 9/11 Commission’s account of the attacks. No longer were there questions over why a forty-seven story building mysteriously collapsed without being hit by an airplane, why foreign substances were found in the dust from the WTC towers, why the 9/11 Commission report omitted the fact that two employees of an Israeli instant messaging company were issued a warning of the attack, why dozens of eye witnesses and television reporters all gave accounts of explosives before, during and after the planes hit the twin towers, why the account of three non-Arabs Middle Easters caught with a van full of explosives was quietly omitted from the official 9/11 narrative, and why faked audios and videos of an Osama bin Laden actor were presented at key points over the past nine years. This type of manipulation of perception by the mainstream media/banking/military complex goes far beyond propaganda; it cleverly bypasses rational thought processes and taps into the post 9/11 atmosphere of paranoia, fear and hatred that the staged media terror event represented for most Americans.          

Let it be clear: 9/11 wasn’t the work of Al Qaeda, or the Bush Administration, or the Bilderbergers, or the New World Order, or “the Jews,” or the Illuminati, it was the work of Zionist intelligence assets, or the CIA/Mossad for lack of better euphemisms, operating under the cover of the mainstream media/banking/military complex. We should refer to this as 9/11 Reality as opposed to 9/11 Truth, as much of the 9/11 Truth movement would rather minimize or absolve the extensive list of Israeli connections to the terror attacks. The best accounts explaining 9/11 Reality can be found in the following essays: How 9/11 Was Done,  911, Iraq, PNAC , All Roads Lead to Israel and Stranger Than Fiction: An Independent Investigation of 9/11 and the War On Terrorism.          

Due to its explosive and controversial nature combined with the easy access of credible information related to the attacks, the mainstream media/banking/military complex has had to tread lightly on the matter of 9/11 Reality. Previous efforts to combat 9/11 Reality have either been only marginally successful, or have largely backfired altogether. The most notable damage control effort to contain 9/11 Reality was CNN’s 2007 Out In The Open segment with Paula Zahn entitled 9/11 and Anti-Semitism. As no one wants to be labeled an “anti-Semite,” the true aim of the broadcast was to prevent mainstream 9/11 Truth activists from disseminating information regarding Israel’s role in 9/11, as well as to reinforce the fictitious idea that Osama bin Laden really did ordered the 9/11 terror attacks in his infamous “confession video.”              

More recent efforts to combat 9/11 Reality have been relegated to the behind-the-scenes efforts of Jewish strong arm organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League, the Simon Weisenthal Center and the Southern Poverty Law Center. Their aims are to author legislation that purport to stop “hate” and then lobby the compromised American Congress to vote to make their legislation into law. These laws will then criminalize 9/11 and similar political activism which would be classified as either  “terrorism” or “hate crimes” under very vague definitions and parameters. Similar legislation proposed to block, shut down or otherwise limit the access of websites under the guise of protecting America from “cyber-terrorism” and  have already been proposed by Senator Joseph Lieberman, who chairs the Committee on Homeland Security. These Jewish strong arm groups will also work closely with the Department of Homeland Security and local law enforcement agencies to spy on political activists that it considers “terrorists,” “extremists” or “haters.” For many years, these Jewish defamation groups have worked closely with local law enforcement agencies across the country, as well as with Homeland Security, and have fed them all manner of skewed reports which demonize Americans of all political and social walks of life.              

Spielberg: High-jacking 9/11 Reality and beyond

The next wave of 9/11 media manipulation will be Steven Spielberg’s documentary, Rebuilding Ground Zero, to be released in 2011. The documentary will air in six parts on the Science Channel for the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. A promotional blurb states the following:              

The doc will not only trace the engineering and building of the new skyscraper – known as the “Freedom Tower” before being renamed One World Trade Center – at the World Trade Center site, but it will remember “those who lost their lives in the Sept. 11 airplane attack.”              

Science Channel says Rebuilding will utilize 3-D, time-lapse cameras, computer models and similar technology to tell the story. One World Trade Center, when complete, will be the tallest building in the United States, and will include the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.              

“The fact that Steven Spielberg … will produce a documentary on it ensures that the story will be brought to life for the people around the world for generations to come.”              

Spielberg is said to have a fascination with 9/11, and in his remake of War of the Worlds  he was criticized for cynically invoking images and themes related to the terror attacks.  We should expect more of the same, and possibly worse, over the six nights that this documentary is set to air.  It seems as though Spielberg intends to do for 9/11 what he did for the Holocaust: take a historical event, then construct a fictional account of that event and present his fictional version of the event as true history, or reality, for mass consumption.              

Conclusion: Because lies need to be told over and over to remain believable, the Ground Zero Mosque and Quran burning were psychological warfare operations meant to reinforce the official government 9/11 disinformation to the average American. It is also being used to pit the Western, mostly Christian world against the Muslim world in a Jewish-Zionist version of the clash of civilizations where World Zionism emerges as the victor. The next step is an attack and a proposed invasion on Iran. Since the majority of Americans are  war-weary and feeling the hopelessness from the existing Middle East conflicts, another horrific, staged terror media event greater than 9/11 with an exponentially higher body count will be needed to rally the support needed for the attack on Iran.

The entire Arab Muslim world was framed for the terror attacks of September 11, 2001

Under the Radar Media

Who is behind all of this anti-Arab, and anti-Muslim hysteria and fear-mongering that we have seen over the past few months reguarding the controversy of the “Ground Zero mosque?”  The same propagandists who gave us the official September 11, 2001 cover story,  the anthrax attack coverup, the lies about Saddam’s imaginary weapons of mass distruction, and the current  “Bomb Iran” coalition,  that’s who!

Check out this video of American and Israeli Zionist Jews explaining the 9/11 terror attacks to the BBC on the day of the attacks. It’s a good thing that these “experts” had cleared their schedules and were on hand on September 11, 2001 to explain the terror attacks to America and the Western world before US intelligence and their counterparts had a chance to investigate the attacks. What in the world would we have ever done without them? Keep in mind these Zionist warmongers had already named the culprits of the attacks, implicated the practically all of the Arab and Muslim countries, called for America to go war against these countries, and told Americans that they will have to give up some of their freedoms for security; all before any intelligence officials had a chance to investigate the crimes.

A War Against the West – published on 9-11-2001 by Israeli Institute IASPS
by Robert J. Loewenberg, President, IASPS

Today’s sensational attacks on the U. S., certainly by Muslims who were likely Arabs, are being described as “terrorist” acts by “madmen” for example by Chris Patton, EU. Others seeking an academic perspective along the lines of Sam Huntington, see the attacks as a new bi-polar division between Muslims and Western states and culture. Our reading at the Institute for Advanced Strategic & Political Studies (Jerusalem and Washington, D. C.) is these attacks are the beginning of a struggle against the West in which the source or cause is primarily the West itself, a group of societies divided internally by an array of factors.

Practically speaking, residents of New York and Washington, D. C. as well as other U.S. cities can now expect routine terrorist assaults ranging from individual terrorist assaults, suicide bombings, germ and chemical attacks in subways and buildings. The existence in the U.S. of legal and tax exempt Arab and Muslim groups, for example CAIR, can be expected to fund and participate in, and most of all to defend these attacks while holding up their opponents as racist.

The strategic, military effect of this struggle against the West, presently most visible in the Middle East and concerning Islam and Arabs, finds its “advanced case” in Israel.  Just as Israel has been the object of an Arab undertaking, supported in the West (and most of all in Israel itself and among Jews) to extinguish, cruelly and barbarically to be sure by Arabs and Muslims,  Israel’s national existence, the assault today on the U.S. was driven by this same wish or hope to exterminate a nation and its people, and for which the source of support and complicity, grotesquely, resides in the West among its rulers and elites. In other words, what makes this effort a signal one in addition to being genocidal, is that its cause (to be distinguished from its executors) is not Arabs or Muslims or per Huntington, Islam.

Today’s opening assault in a war to destroy Western states is marked by two Western strategies respecting Israel and the West -by Israel and the West.

These strategies are 1) to establish among states and peoples as their leading principle that national existence is an option, particularly one that should be exercised against national existence and the balance of power by means of “conflict resolution,” cessation of “violence,”  by peace processes, treaties, moral equivalence and a host of similar undertakings to which Israel (and Jews) and the larger West are committed, and, 2) a strategy with respect to war and alliance which rejects the solution of conflicts, as in Ireland, Israel, Kosovo, by the victory of one side, the defeat and surrender of the other. The mantra: “there is no military solution to the conflict,” is at once the rejection of this simple response -victory, defeat, surrender -and, so far as such events can be “caused” by words and ideas –the direct cause of today’s attacks and their certain continuation.

Again, Israel is the “advanced case.” In a series of wars beginning in 1948, Israel has won by trading its final battle for a cease fire, an armistice and dollars. This is to say, Israel traded victory, surrender of the other side(s) and, of course, peace, borders, “neighbors”  for what it has today-a peace process. This trade included what the U.S.  experienced today and can expect to continue, indeed until victory or defeat.

We in the West, today in New York and Washington, D. C., are paying our price for supporting Israel’s “advanced case” of the affliction of the West. Our “pro-Israel” support of the Jewish state’s attempt to accommodate the Arabs instead of defeating them and establishing rational peace was perhaps a Western attempt to “buy off” our own day of reckoning for failure to face up to the obligations of self-defense and national existence.

If there is a simple, strategic “explanation” of today’s attacks on the U.S. it is this: the U.S. and the West, along with Israel, have insisted, at least since September 1993, that the Palestinian Problem has “no military solution.” At the end of the day, and after all the pundits are talked out in matters of “violence” and “peace” and the rest, the attack on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon (and the other assaults to come in what is now a serious if newfangled war) -which resulted in the hideous and unspeakable deaths of thousands of innocent souls, American citizens who have been effectively betrayed -these deaths were triggered by the peace process in Israel (and other peace processes) and by the very people and institutions of the West that are today making the speeches about “madmen” and “terrorism.”  The proximate charge of murder is on the murderers. The wider charge is on the West itself.

Vatic notes: 

Its amazing how fast the head of IASPS (The Israeli Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies) got this out on the day of the attack on 9-11.  We did not even know at this point who had done the attack.  So how did they know?   Remember, Israeli’s inside the twin towers were warned to leave.  So, this added to those other facts, shows they not only knew but were intimately involved in the full scope of the treasonous murder of American civilians.   Hmmmm, and now with all the evidence that Mossad was in part a player in the 9-11 false flag along with our treasonous insiders, this document truly highlights the intent of that event and what they expected to gain from it. No wonder those Mossad agents were celebrating on top of that van as they filmed the entire event. Look at how IASPS interpreted what they had done and blamed on the muslims. Is it clever? yes, but arrogance carries its own price. Its obvious this was all prepared before anyone ever knew who had done 9-11 until that evening and not before.

One astute commentor notes:

A key word in the article is “today’s,” but left unsaid was the time of day. The author of that article, Robert Loewenberg, is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Israel. Israel, where his bio says he now lives, is in an earlier time zone. When the first plane hit the World Trade Center, it was 3:45 P.M. in Israel. Israel evacuated its embassies at 5:54 P.M. Israel time. At 9:00 P.M. Israeli time, an FBI spokesman told CNN that they were “working on the assumption” that the crashes were part of a terrorist attack. At 11:00 P.M. Israeli time, Osama bin Laden was named as a suspect, based on “new and specific information.” Earlier suggestions that Muslims or Arabs were involved in the attacks had been reported as “unconfirmed.” At 3:30 A.M. September 12 Israeli time, Bush addressed the nation but doesn’t identify the attackers. As he speaks, member of Congress tell CNN during “private briefings” that there’s “enough evidence” to convince them that Osama bin Laden was behind the attacks. At 6:30 A.M. September 12 Israeli time, Bush wrote in his journal “The Pearl Harbor of the 21st century took place today….We THINK it’s Osama bin Laden.” (emphasis added) Loewenberg’s article was obviously well prepared; it had to have taken hours to write. Given the time line, those were hours he didn’t have. Prior knowledge? You bet.

Remember CNN’s “Dancing Palestinians” stock footage being played endlessly with no context of what we were actually seeing? CNN told you that these Palestinians were celebrating the attacks, but it is highly likely that this footage was a “psyop” that was prepared in advance of the attacks and meant to negatively portray all Arab Muslims.

Remember the words from Sivan Kurzberg one of the five “Dancing Israelis” arrested on 9/11?

‘We Are Not Your Problem’ 

According to the police report, one of the passengers told the officers they had been on the West Side Highway in Manhattan “during the incident” — referring to the World Trade Center attack. The driver of the van, Sivan Kurzberg, told the officers, “We are Israeli. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are the problem.”

Israeli intelligence news site DEBKAfile admitted that 911 had to have been an inside job

Under The Radar Media

On September 12, 2001, the online news source DEBKAfile, and the intelligence experts associated with the publication, admitted that 9/11 had to have been an inside job!

Based on their initial investigation of the limited facts that were available at the time, DEBKAfile came to some of the same conclusions, theories and beliefs that are actively promoted by the 9/11 Truth community and in the alternative media. These theories include the infiltration and disarmament of critical security infrastructure, collusion between the alleged terrorists and airport employees, and the impossibility of the absolute failure of US military and intelligence agencies to sufficiently perform their duties.

DEBKAfile is an Israeli online publication dedicated to intelligence and security news, and more importantly, for disseminating information regarding Arab terrorism in Israel and the Middle East. DEBKAfile claims to have pioneered “intensive news coverage and analysis of global terror before it hits the front pages.”

The article, “A Vast Conspiracy Hatched In The Dark” has been removed from DEBKAfile’s archives, however it can be found here , or here via the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine. While the article’s obvious intent was to offer support that Arab terrorists were responsible for 9/11, the news organization appears to have initially supported an “inside job” theory of the terror attacks, where an Al Qaeda cell was able to penetrate the US government. As it turns out, DEBKAfile’s article may have been the very first 9/11 “conspiracy theory” article ever published!

The most interesting of DEBKAfile’s suspicions was that the US military’s entire security apparatus and defense system “was muffled, disarmed from the inside,” and that Osama bin Laden or a senior associate “must have been able to plant agents inside the US military and intelligence services” for the attacks to have been carried out. Now that the public has an official government account of the events via the 9/11 Commission, DEBKAfile’s article can be examined from essentially two views:

1) DEBKAfile’s summary contradicts the 9/11 Commission.

2) DEBKAfile’s summary supports alternative accounts of 9/11 (conspiracy theories).

Fortunately, for the true intellectuals and academics who look down on conspiracy theories, it’s a good thing that we had an official, non-partisan 9/11 investigation that was able to put some of DEBKAfile’s wild conclusions to rest.

DEBKAfile’s initial analysis contradicts the 9/11 Commission

Consider DEBKAfile’s claim that the pre-planning of 9/11 “involved hundreds if not thousands” of participants. While the official 9/11 Commission agrees that the attack took years of planning, its account of who planned and executed the attacks doesn’t even exceed thirty men. This is if we include Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, Zacarias Moussaoui and (stretching a bit) Osama bin Laden’s driver, Salim Ahmed Hamdan.

If we are to accept the 9/11 Commission’s report and reject DEBKAfile’s claims, these were twenty or so of the hardest working men ever; doing the work of more than 100, possibly 1000 individuals! As evil and cold-blooded as these terrorists were, one must admire their efficiency and dedication to their craft!

Moving on to the amount of cash it took to pull off the attacks, DEBKAfile claims “large sums of cash must have moved between countries.” “Large” is a relative term, and they don’t state exactly how large an amount of money was used, but again, the 9/11 Commission appears to run contrary with DEBKAfile’s claims.

Officials on the 9/11 Commission seem to marvel at how these thrifty terrorists only ran up a tab of around $400,000 – $500,000 in preparation for the attacks of 9/11. [Zelikow, 9/11 Commission Report, p. 169] This amount included, for nineteen men (possibly more), flight lessons, various cross-country jaunts, international travel, food and lodging, rental cars, incidentals, alcohol, cocaine and gambling for some, and even the occasional lap dance!

The 9/11 Commission was, however, unable to determine exactly where these funds came from, but it was determined that Al Qaeda was the primary funding source for the highjackers. It was believed by the commission, that Al Qaeda used a secretive, shadowy, ancient system of money transfer used by Muslims called hawala. The 9/11 Commission also noted that they could not trace the money to any one foreign nation or any domestic source. [Zelikow, 9/11 Commission Report, p. 171]

DEBKAfile hypothesized that somehow US defenses must have been “muffled” and “disarmed from the inside.” It was further suggested that Osama bin Laden or Al Qaeda members were somehow able to infiltrate various US intelligence and military establishments.

Unfortunately, for the DEBKAfile conspiracy theorists, the 9/11 Commission’s official government account makes no mention of the infiltration of any intelligence or defense establishments by bin Laden or any of his associates. The 9/11 Commission does state that Richard Clarke of the National Security Council, mentioned the possibility of sleeper cells having existed in the US, but no evidence was ever presented to support that claim. [Zelikow, 9/11 Commission Report, p. 263]


DEBKAfile’s initial analysis supports 9/11 Truth

As previously stated, even though DEBKAfile’s claims and early analysis of the events of 9/11 essentially support the US government and mainstream media’s “Arab conspiracy theory,” in many ways they align with modern day alternative accounts of 9/11 and the subsequent aftermath.

For instance, DEBKAfile reported on the possibility that the alleged 19 highjackers received some assistance by airport personnel at Boston’s Logan International Airport in order to board Flight 11, and that “hundred of suspected accomplices were to be detained for interrogation.”This substantiates the claim made on many alternative websites which conclude that the Israeli security firm ICTS International and its subsidiary, Huntleigh USA, was responsible for allowing the alleged terrorists to board Flight 11.

ICTS is currently headed by convicted criminal Menachem Atzmon and his business partner Ezra Harel. Former members of the Shin Bet (Israeli equivalent of the FBI) and Tel Aviv’s El Al Airport security established ICTS in 1982. In January 2010, Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz reported that allegations were being leveled at ICTS for being responsible for allowing the Christmas day “underwear bomber,” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to board Northwest flight 253 at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam.

Alternative websites mirror DEBKAfile’s claim that US defenses must have been “muffled” and “disarmed from the inside,” only DEBKAfile asserts that Arab terrorists had infiltrated some sectors, while many 9/11 truth sites alleged that various military drills, like NORAD’s Vigilant Guardian, which occurred at the same time as the attacks, were used as smokescreens.

It has been well documented that the Vigilant Guardian terror drills initially caused some confusion for its participants, who thought the first reports of the hijackings were “part of the exercise.” Vigilant Guardian also happened to have been practicing their responses to a simulated plane hijacking in which terrorists plan to blow up a hijacked airliner over New York City.

And what of DEBKAfile’s claim that “hundreds if not thousands” of participants had to have been involved in the planning and execution of 9/11? A growing number of alternative news sites and 9/11 researchers now conclude that the suspicious activity of several groups of Israelis, as well as a large Israeli spy ring that was uncovered before, during and after 9/11, were connected to the attacks.

In the now infamous FOX News investigative report, “Israel Is Spying In And On The U.S.” featuring Carl Cameron, it was reported that at least sixty Israelis were rounded up after 9/11, and there had been as many as 140 other Israelis had been detained or arrested after 9/11. This may or may not include the “five dancing Israelis,” who were the very first suspects to have been arrested in connection to the attacks, or the various other Israelis who were arrested and detained after 9/11.

This appears to correspond with the estimated amount of Arab participants DEBKAfile concluded must have been involved in 9/11. FOX News had also discovered that the spy ring “targeted and penetrated military bases.” The DEA, FBI, dozens of government facilities, and even unlisted private homes of law enforcement and intelligence personnel were allegedly targeted. Again, we are seeing a direct parallel to DEBKAfile’s initial conclusion of the infiltration of “agents inside the US military and intelligence services.”

While Cameron assured his viewers that there was no evidence that Israel was directly involved with the attacks, we were also told”evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It’s classified information.”


It’s easy to see that immediately after the attacks, DEBKAfile attempted to create the fictitious idea that Arab terrorist cells existed all over the United States, and could launch more attacks at any time. Readers must simultaneously accept that DEBKAfile acted as a propaganda mouthpiece for Israeli military and intelligence objectives, and at the same time, respect DEBKAfile’s analysis on how the terror attacks must have been carried out.

The irony is that most of DEBKAfile’s initial claims on how 9/11 was carried out can be used as evidence to support credible, alternative theories, and even more ironic that the evidence along with DEBKAfile’s initial analysis suggests that 9/11 was an Israeli military and intelligence black operation.

Drill held at D.C. transit station days before Pentagon shooting

Posted in Uncategorized by maasanova on March 6, 2010

Kurt Nimmo

Coincidence? Several days before John Patrick Bedell attacked two Pentagon cops and was killed, D.C. police staged a drill at the Friendship Heights Metro station in in Northwest Washington.

“Metro police and other emergency personnel will descend on the Friendship Heights Station starting at 11:30 Wednesday night for an anti-terrorist exercise in which mock gunmen open fire, killing or wounding several passengers,” Ann Scott Tyson reported for the Washington Post on February 22. “Agencies responding will include the Metro police special response team, as well as fire, police and emergency medical personnel from the District, Montgomery County and the FBI, according to a Metro statement.”

Prior to the Friendship Heights Metro station drill, on February 3, D.C. Metro Transit Police staged their largest anti-terrorism sweep ever, “some toting M-4 rifles and others guiding bomb-sniffing dogs,” according to the Post. “In coming months, they plan to hold similar drills for the effort, dubbed Blue TIDE (Terrorism Identification and Deterrence Effort).”

Drills are a prominent and highly suspicious feature of the attacks on September 11, 2001. New York City was scheduled to have a major terrorism training exercise September 11. It was called Tripod and was intended to test how well the city’s Office of Emergency Management would administer treatment in the event of a biological-terrorism attack. FEMA and the FBI were scheduled to participate.

FEMA spokesman Tom Kenney confirmed Tripod was scheduled to take place. He told Dan Rather on September 12, 2001, that FEMA was deployed to New York on Monday night, September 10th, to be ready to go into action on Tuesday morning, September 11th. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani confirmed FEMA’s presence in the city during his testimony before the 9-11 Commission in 2004.

During its Vigilant Guardian exercise held on September 6, 2001, NORAD practiced for dealing with the simulated hijackings of two commercial aircraft by terrorists. The simulated hijackings were to occur on September 9, 10, and the morning of September 11.

The previous month, on August 30, the Department of Transportation held a tabletop exercise as part of its preparations for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. “During that exercise, part of the scenario, interestingly enough, involved a potentially hijacked plane and someone calling on a cell phone, among other aspects of the scenario that were very strange when 12 days later, as you know, we had the actual event [of 9/11],” Ellen Engleman, the administrator of the DOT’s Research and Special Programs Administration, said in October, 2001.

In early August of 2001, a mass casualty exercise was held at the Pentagon. The scenario envisioned a hijacked plane hitting the Pentagon. “[It was] purely a coincidence, the scenario for that exercise included a plane hitting the building,” General Lance Lord, the assistant vice chief of staff of the Air Force who was one of the participants in the exercise, told the Air Force Space Command News in September, 2002.

On the morning of September 11, within minutes of the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the CIA was engaged in “a pre-planned simulation to explore the emergency response issues that would be created if a plane were to strike a building.” The Bush administration described the event as “a bizarre coincidence.”

And then there was the terrorist drill held in London during the July 7, 2005, attack. “At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now,” Peter Power, Managing Director of Visor Consultants, a private firm on contract to the London Metropolitan Police, told the BBC.

After the London attack, math on the odds of a drill occurring at the same time was calculated. “The odds were one in 3,715,592,613,265,750,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. This is obviously a figure open to conjecture but it gives you an idea of the ballpark improbability we are talking about,” Paul Jospeh Watson wrote for Prison Planet on July 23, 2005. (See Probability of 7/7 Drill and Attack Coinciding.)

The odds on the drill at the Friendship Heights Metro station in in Northwest Washington and the Blue TIDE exercise held earlier prior to the Pentagon shooting are much lower, but suspicious nonetheless.

The exercises were not mentioned by the corporate media after the Pentagon shooting. The fact drills and exercises parallel such events are irrelevant to the corporate media. Its primary agenda is to engage in hysterical fear-mongering about “rightwing extremists” and 9/11 truthers and fallaciously connect them to a shooting by a mentally deranged man who not only wrote about 9/11 truth but the bizarre idea that marijuana should be the basis for the nation’s currency.
