The 9/11 issue is increasingly being framed as not “a conspiracy theory,” but “a legitimate controversy,” based on several unanswered questions and important scientific evidence emerging  showing the official story line the American public has been fed about the 9/11 attacks is a lie.

Dr. Alan Sabrosky in a recent interview on Sahar TV, marking the 9th Anniversary of the tragedy, once again challenges the truth of the official US Government Truth Commission and reiterates and re-affirms his earlier positions, among others that “….WT7 was absolutely a controlled demolition job…and if one of them was, then all three were”

By Alan Sabrosky

The attacks on September 11, 2001 have been a defining moment for America. Although the losses were not great in terms of urban slaughter during WWII, the political and psychological impact on Americans of a concerted and visible attack in America were enormous — indeed, it is an interesting “coincidence” that the attacks occurred on the one day of the year whose mention reinforces a public sense here of danger and emergency: 9-1-1.

With remarkably little reflection or concern with details and evidence, Americans accepted sweeping restrictions on civil liberties, torture as an instrument of government policy, and waged wars first in Afghanistan and later in Iraq, presumably punishing those who attacked America then or might do so in the future. A similar if less enthusiastic drama is unfolding today, as many of the same parties who brought us 9/11, Afghanistan and Iraq are edging America into confrontation and war with Iran.

Like most Americans, I take a dim view of a fixation on conspiracies. I am also conscious of a remark by a French colleague some years ago to the effect that Europeans saw conspiracies everywhere, but Americans never saw them anywhere, and both were wrong. I am even less enthusiastic about presumed coincidences with global consequences driving policy, or superficial explanations of physical catastrophes that fly in the face of both logic and physical realities. With one war waning today, another getting hotter and a third “in the oven,” it is high time to look hard at what brought us to this place.

Prelude to 9/11

Most of the world (but not Americans) understood for decades that American Middle East policy was weighted heavily towards Israel. Eisenhower could compel Israel to withdraw from the Sinai, but the last US President who forcefully opposed Israeli regional and nuclear ambitions was John F. Kennedy. His assassination brought Lyndon Johnson into the White House, so much a friend of Israel that he disregarded the deliberate Israeli attack on the USS Liberty during the 1967 war, in which over 200 US sailors and Marines were killed or wounded.

Shortly thereafter, pilgrimages to Israel and laudatory appearances before AIPAC (the powerful Jewish lobby in Washington) became effectively obligatory for Presidents and serious aspirants for the White House alike, with the Congress (both houses, both parties) being even more supportive – something commonly understood in Washington, but almost unknown elsewhere in the country.

A significant development in the 1990s was the formation of the neo-conservative think tank known as PNAC (Project for a New American Century), whose members prepared position papers for the Israeli government and for a future US Administration sharing their views. That happened in 2000 with the election of George W. Bush, and a contemporary writer summarized the tip of the neo-conservative iceberg in his first Administration this way:

The “outsiders” from PNAC were now powerful “insiders,” placed in important positions from which they could exert maximum pressure on U.S. policy: Cheney is Vice President, Rumsfeld is Defense Secretary, Wolfowitz is Deputy Defense Secretary, I. Lewis Libby is Cheney’s Chief of Staff, Elliot Abrams is in charge of Middle East policy at the National Security Council, Dov Zakheim is comptroller for the Defense Department, John Bolton is Undersecretary of State, Richard Perle is chair of the Defense Policy advisory board at the Pentagon, former CIA director James Woolsey is on that panel as well, etc. etc. (PNAC’s chairman, Bill Kristol, is the editor of The Weekly Standard.) In short, PNAC had a lock on military policy-creation in the Bush Administration.

The presence of so many people from PNAC in key positions definitely sent a signal that US Middle East policy would henceforth be that of Israel, something that brought no joy to any other countries in the region, much less the long-suffering Palestinians. Mutterings about a supposed “Road Map” to some type of peace arrangement in such circumstances were utterly meaningless, and almost everyone except the American public understood this fact of life.

Far more significant in terms of subsequent events was the acknowledgement in one of PNAC’s own documents that their program for America (and Israel) would not readily be accepted by the American people. What this meant, PNAC opined in 2000, was that “the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor.”

9/11 Reconsidered

On September 11, 2001, the PNAC people in and out of government — and by extension AIPAC and Israel — “coincidentally” got the event they needed, barely eight months after coming into office. Most people are familiar with the basic details of that day — two commercial aircrafts crashing into the two tallest buildings in New York City’s World Trade Center (WTC), a third striking the Pentagon, and a fourth ending up in a Pennsylvania field. Few people will forget the images of the burning buildings, their collapse, the casualties, and the sense of shock and tragedy that ensued. Few should forget the passage of emergency legislation (the misnamed “Patriot Act”), the rush to attack Afghanistan for harboring the source of the attackers, or the later rush to attack Iraq to forestall “mushroom clouds” from its apocryphal “weapons of mass destruction.”

The official 9/11 Commission’s work and report were at best an incomplete exercise. Many people dismiss the findings of the Commission, and that includes its co-chairs. Many others who utterly distrust the 9/11 Commission report, dismiss the US Government’s explanation of it, and point to both an official cover-up and an “inside job,” include veteran fighter pilots, EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians)(EMT interview), air defense experts, experienced commercial pilots, demolition experts, architects and civil engineers – none of them professions that inherently attract and retain the gullible and credulous.

Errors abound in the report. Among the more catastrophic is the collapse of a third WTC building (the 47-story WTC7) which was not hit by a plane, and fell in what appears to be a controlled demolition, but has essentially been sidestepped by the mainstream media (MSM). And this video interview (Interview) with a demolitions expert overseas explains clearly and succinctly what happened to WTC7, with the shock and chaos accompanying the impact of the aircraft serving to distract attention and conceal what happened overall. The overlay of the World Trade Center below shows the layout of the affected buildings:


Even more unbelievable is the “coincidental” salvage of an intact passport presumably belonging to one of the hijackers inside the plane that hit WTC2 — and this was how the official 9/11 Commission report described it:

The passport was recovered by NYPD Detective Yuk H. Chin from a male passerby in a business suit, about 30 years old. The passerby left before being identified, while debris was falling from WTC 2. The tower collapsed shortly afterwards. The detective then gave the passport to the FBI on 9/11.


Several things are very clear to me from a careful assessment of both official and critical evaluations of the 9/11 attacks. First, the striking aircraft alone simply could not have brought down either of the two buildings in the manner in which they fell, much less a third building which was not hit by a plane (I expect the one intended to do that as a “cover” had ended up in that Pennsylvania field), given the available physical evidence and a wealth of expert testimony. This means the attackers had assistance on the ground, and it had to have been active before the attacks occurred: preparing buildings for controlled demolition is not something done haphazardly in the midst of chaos.

Second, only two intelligence agencies had the expertise, assets, access and political protection to execute 9/11 in the air and on the ground: our CIA and Israel’s Mossad. Only one had the incentive, using the “who benefits” principle: Mossad. And that incentive dovetailed perfectly with the neo-con’s agenda and explicitly expressed need for a catalytic event to mobilize the American public for their wars, using American military power to destroy Israel’s enemies. Only the unexpected strength of the Iraqi resistance kept Syria and Iran from being attacked in the second Bush Administration. Thus, the evidential trail for 9/11 and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq run from PNAC, AIPAC and their cohorts; through the mostly Jewish neo-cons in the Bush Administration; and back to the Israeli government. None of the denials and political machinations can alter that essential reality. Terms such as treason, betrayal and deceit do not overstate the case against them.

Finally, we need to take a hard look at why the mainstream media (MSM) have paid more attention to Sarah Palin’s wardrobe than they have to dissecting blatant falsehoods, discrepancies and inconsistencies in the US Government’s treatment of 9/11 and its aftermath. And the reason is that on this issue, all are on the same side, and the official line is the one they all prefer – “all” meaning the PNAC alumni who took over the Bush Administration’s national security apparatus and their counterparts in the Obama administration, AIPAC and the rest of the numerous Jewish PACs, the MSM owners and Israel. The depiction of the media management in America in 2002 is especially informative, and has not changed significantly since then:


Looking Ahead

Today we are getting the same line on Iran, from the same type of people — Obama himself tries to be more independent, but most of the key staff and national security people in his Administration do not differ greatly on Israel and the Middle East from those of his predecessor. And the Congress has shown itself to be even more of AIPAC’s lap-dog than the preceding Congress, an exercise in self-serving cowardice that admittedly has taken some doing. This is not a simple anti-Jewish canard or mindless prejudice, both of which are juvenile and self-defeating sentiments. They are a factual depiction of specific people in specific positions advocating specific policies and stonewalling specific attempts to elicit specific information about specific lies, misrepresentations and deceit.

AIPAC and company are riding a tiger in America, and if they ever slip, the resulting convulsion will be catastrophic for them and for Israel. The open unfolding of the 9/11 tragedy and its ensuing wars that is now occurring can be that slip. The human cost to America to date is some 60,000 people, military and civilian, killed or wounded on 9/11 and in Iraq and Afghanistan together, with more to come once we go to war with Iran (or get dragged into it following an Israeli attack on Iran). Much of the deliberately misdirected rage that followed 9/11 has given way to endurance and grief, captured all too well in the following picture of a military funeral here:


But grief is a close cousin to rage, and an enraged America is not pretty, as anyone familiar with our history can appreciate. Americans are often deceptive without meaning to be. To much of the world, they often come across as naive, bumbling innocents in the world of global politics. And on a day-to-day basis, there is much truth to that.

But an enraged America is a very different character. You have only to look at what happened in WWII to German and Japanese cities, towns and villages, where America slaughtered literally millions of German and Japanese civilians — most of them women and children — knew it was doing it, and cared nothing at all. The goal was to crush, and restraint was not a word used much at all.

If these Americans and those like them ever fully understand just how much of their suffering — and the suffering we have inflicted on others — is properly laid on the doorsteps of Israel and its advocates in America, they will sweep aside those in politics, the press and the pulpits alike whose lies and disloyalty brought this about and concealed it from them. They may well leave Israel looking like Carthage after the Romans finished with it. It will be Israel’s own great fault.

    checked justice dept web site

    the only terror org mentioned are of muslims

  2. D Costa  September 21, 2010 at 11:00 am

    Taken from The Ugly Truth/Mark Glenn website:

    “Remember something as you watch all this folks–The JDL has been linked by the US Justice Department to numerous bombings, arsons, murders and is listed as one the 10 most dangerous terrorist groups operating in the United States. Remember also that if these were Muslims doing this–talking about arming themselves in preparation for the coming “final showdown” it would be all over the news.”

    Please watch the video that is posted on this same website for more details.

    Zionist Israel and Zionist Jews are the most dangerous terrorists we have. Not only these terror groups wage terrorism on humanity but spread lies and misinformation to cover up their crimes. It is important that we dont get deceived by their lies. These criminals murdered President Kennedy, did the Lavon Affair, bombed USS Liberty, and USS Cole and so many other crimes. Right now Israeli Mossad is conducting a spy/crime ring in the east side of Providence among other things. Wayne Madsen has reported about their criminal activities in several other states. Please read his report. Please also go to The Ugly Truth/Mark Glenn website for more information about what these criminals are up to and how the Home Land Security is aiding and abetting them while also giving these criminals millions of tax payer dollars.

    Taken from Daily Paul

    “In November, Pennsylvania’s Homeland Security issued a bulletin stating that two Tea Party rallies against illegal immigration might attract “white nationalists.” The report was issued by the Institute of Terrorism Research and Response, an Israeli company.

    Israeli company said the Tea Party is comprised of “white nationalists.”

    “I think it is one of the more bizarre things I’ve ever heard,” Karen Kiefer, a Tea Party activist from Scottdale, told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on Saturday. “A lot of people say they never feel safer than at a Tea Party rally. They got $103,000 in taxpayers’ money to compile these bogus lists? That is absolutely shocking.”

    Appearing on the Alex Jones Show on Thursday, investigative journalist Wayne Madsen discussed the involvement of the Israeli company in an effort by Pennsylvania’s Homeland Security to spy on activists exercising their First Amendment.

    On Wednesday, reported that Pennsylvania paid a Philadelphia-based nonprofit $125,000 to compile a list of activists as part of the state Homeland Security’s federally mandated mission to protect public infrastructure. Pittsburgh officials have refused to comment on the role ITRR played in tracking and sabotaging activist groups that planned to protest the 2009 G20 summit in their city.

    On Thursday, it was reported that the company was in fact not non-profit and is based in Israel.

    In July, the NAACP attempted to portray the Tea Party has racist. It adopted a resolution condemning “racist elements” in the Tea Party movement and called on the movement’s leaders to repudiate bigotry, despite a lack of evidence the movement is racist. The resolution followed accusations by the the Congressional Black Caucus that anti-Obamacare protesters had spit on Rep. Emanuel Cleaver and hurled racist slurs at the Caucus.

    Video of the alleged incident and remarks by Cleaver later revealed that the attack and racial epithets never occurred. Cleaver said a Tea Party protester did not spit on him intentionally. “All I’m saying is we all have to defuse it, and I think it is not in my best interest or in the best interest of this nation to stoke it,” he said on March 30 during a Fox News interview.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center and the so-called progressive corporate media have created a fallacious narrative claiming the Tea Party movement is racist. In a report posted earlier this year, Mark Potok of the SPLC stated that the Tea Party movement is “shot through with rich veins of radical ideas, conspiracy theories and racism.” The corporate media routinely uses SPLC literature and features Potok as an “expert” on the “radical right.”

    Iran and other Muslim countries, their leaders and people are not our enemies. The only enemies we have are Zionist Israel, Zionist Jews and their enablers: the Christian Zionists.

    There are some other interesting and important news on the Ugly Truth/Mark Glenn Website that includes how the Home Land Security Department has given millions of dollars to 250 plus Jews groups.

    The Israeli Mossad and 9/11: Conversations with/about Alan Sabrosky

    Kevin Barrett interviews Alan Sabrosky whose forceful and unequivocal statement that the Israeli Mossad did 9/11 sent shock waves through the 9/11 truth movement. Some have cheered his forthright honesty and heartfelt sincerit…y. Others are afraid of the PR blowback. A few have attacked Sabrosky, calling him a provocateur or even an anti-Semite, which seems odd since Sabrosky is part Jewish and obviously concerned for the welfare of Jewish Americans in the coming post-9/11-truth world.

    “..they (America) will sweep aside those in politics, the press and the pulpits alike whose lies and disloyalty brought this about and concealed it from them”.

    Great sentiments and a worthy expectation but will it ever happen. One can’t help remembering the USS Liberty to which Alan refers as does anyone trying to make the point about the control of US policy by Israel. That was 1967, 43 years ago and with this passing of time so the motivation diminishes and the witnesses pass away, never able to be used in a serious examination of the events on that day.

    This was swept under the carpet by a President no less and compounded by the inaction of many, many Presidents since that time. No result and there never will be now. We all know that.

    So whereas we all talk about treason, deceit and infamy in relation to these events against the US, it is a different climate these days where the CIA, probably the FBI and any number of other US organizations have sold their country down the river, in the face of little opposition in a country of over 200 million people.

    We all understand the media ownership problem. But these events must have had thousands of people in the know, involved or otherwise and not a single patriot among them? Hard to digest. What keeps thousands quiet in 2010 when in earlier eras in America they have been those who came forward and told the truth.

    As I said, the US is a different country now. The recent financial crisis, the greed and the profiteers, still well and happy and planning the next one; the inaction of many Presidents in the USS Liberty infamy; the wars we are all fighting on behalf of the manipulators, all with US government approval; the fact that the US public service is controlled by the same people as those who own the media; the fact that not even one citizen has taken up any action to bring the government to account and so many matters including the erosion of freedoms through legislation such as the Patriot Act indicates quite clearly that there really is no resolution to this matter except the indictment of all those who have advised weak Presidents falsely, who have engineered wars and financial crises and who have used and abused the naive nature of the sleepy American people with the clever help of worthless politicians.

    How do you overcome such eroded values?

    Finally, as above…the USS Liberty was 43 years ago.

    Was 9/11 any more infamous than that crime?

    Ponder that.

      I cannot think of a better, more thorough, and credible way to spell it all out as Alan Sabrosky has done. It is writing like this, and more like it, which will eventually get through to the public I hope.

      Yes, that which he calls the “Heartland” of the United States is where the answers and the solutions lie. It is home of Joe the plumber, Joe and Jenny Sixpack, Billy Bob and Sissy-May.

      It is the place where I believe,they only know,only one action when their anger is up… overreaction!

      I recall Alan Sabrosky mentioned in an earlier writing a year or so ago, that if the general American public ever understood what the Zionists had done, the latter and their cohorts would think that the Holocaust (even the one they present to the world) was just a garden party…

    • Penumbra  September 20, 2010 at 9:41 pm

      Sadly Deb, most of the illiterates to whom you refer are too busy waving their flags and salivating over whatever latest ‘outrage’ drivel O’Reilly, Hannity, Beck or Hagee can dream up on Faux News. Reports like this would be lost on their limited rational capabilities.

      Perhaps if Rush or Alex Jones began disseminating these reports and simplifying their content for their listeners your hopes might have a chance. Frankly I think it is hoping in vain.

    • Debbie Menon  September 21, 2010 at 5:13 am


      The foregoing simply underlines the ignorance and the gullibility, the readiness to believe whatever they are told, whatever they see as “popular opinion” flying in the face of realty as it may be, above the reality of good and common sense… in other words ignorance and stupidity!
