New 9/11 Investigation May Be In The Offing

by Sherwood Ross


Ten years have gone by since the terrible attacks on New York City and the Pentagon yet there is no closure on what happened on “9/11” and who was behind it. An initiative led by former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel, a Democrat, will be on the Massachusetts ballot next year if he gets 70,000 signatures by December. “Polls have repeatedly shown that millions of Americans seriously doubt the official story about 9/11,” Gravel said.

According to a report by Byron Belitsos published in the September “Rock Creek Free Press,” of Washington, D.C., “thousands of courageous Americans have lent their names to the call for a new investigation, including over 200 senior military intelligence and other government officials; over 1,500 engineers and architects; over 250 pilots and aviation professionals; and over 400 professors.”

Critics of the official spin point out that even John Farmer, the 9/11 Commission’s own senior counsel, stated that, “At some level of the government, at some point in time…there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened.”

There are just too many unexplained happenings and coincidences, too many people on the scene—photographers, reporters, ambulance drivers, etc.—who had no reason to lie about what they saw—whose testimony shreds the official Bush regime findings.

To begin with, you have to put 9/11 in the context of the times. You might think no group of Americans could perpetrate such a dastardly crime against their fellow citizens and then lie to cover their tracks, except that it happened when George W. Bush was president.

Here’s a man who lied about the reasons for making war on Iraq, an even bigger crime against humanity than 911. Bush killed maybe a million people in Iraq. Somebody who does that might just as well wear a swastika arm band. It’s no stretch of the imagination to suspect a man that low of attacking his own country just as Hitler’s Nazis probably set fire to their parliament as an excuse to expand their repressive policies.

I can’t begin to discuss all of the 9/11 happenings that strike me as unusual but here are a few for starters:
(1) Doesn’t it strike you as odd that of about 1-billion families in the whole world, Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of 911, was a man whose family did business with the Bush family?

As Rick Wiles of American Freedom News wrote, President Bush didn’t tell the American people that bin Laden’s brother was an investor in his own former oil business in Texas.

(2) Something else to consider as unusual. A week before 9/11, General Mahmoud Ahmad, the head of Pakistan’s intelligence service, ISI, meets in Washington with CIA chief George Tenet. Who’s Ahmad? He’s the guy who ordered $100,000 wired to Mohamed Atta hours before 9/11.

Atta, you remember, was the ringleader of the 9/11 attacks. He’s the guy who piloted American Airlines Flight 11 into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. So here is the head of the CIA meeting with the guy who is funding the attack on New York and the Pentagon. Now, does that strike you as worth looking into?

(3) Instead of welcoming an investigation into the events of 9/11, President Bush fought it tooth and claw. And so did his hired help. As the New York Times of July 9, 2003 reported: “The federal commission investigating the Sept. 11 terror attacks said today that its work was being hampered by the failure of executive branch agencies, especially the Pentagon and the Justice Department, to respond quickly to requests for documents and testimony.”

(4) President Bush also made sure the study was biased. The executive director was Philip Zelikow, a man who had worked with Bush insider Condoleezza Rice in the past and co-authored a book with her. Zelikow decided what went into the 9/11 Report and what was left out. And tons of weird stuff pointing to an inside job was left out.

(5) Zelikow left out any mention of the destruction of World Trade Center building 7. That 47-story-high skyscraper collapsed from what eye-witnesses on the scene called internal explosions. As David Ray Griffin, a leading spokesperson for the 9/11 Truth Movement, wrote “Given the fact that WTC 7 was not hit by a plane, that the available photographs show no large fires, and that fire had never caused a steel-frame high-rise to collapse, why did someone in (New York) Mayor Giuliani’s office declare that WTC 7 was going to collapse some five hours before it actually did?”

(6) Also, how did it happen that American Airlines Flight 77 was not stopped before it crashed into the Pentagon? The Pentagon is the center of the world’s mightiest military machine and it couldn’t defend itself from a civilian airliner?

(7) Even more mysterious, how did it happen that the Pentagon—which operates global spy satellites that can show the hood ornament of your car clearly from orbit—how is it the Pentagon has no photo of Flight 77 coming in? Not even a snap shot from some admiral’s cell phone on the ground?

And why after 9/11 did the FBI go to all the stores and gas stations around the Pentagon and confiscate their video camera films? Is it because the Pentagon might have been struck by a missile, and not at all by an airliner?

(8) And how did it happen that network news reporters at the scene on the Pentagon lawn said they saw no remains of a Boeing airliner? Jamie McIntyre of CNN said, “From my close-up inspection, there’s no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon…There are no large tail sections, wing sections, fuselage, nothing like that anywhere around.”

McIntyre thought the plane may have gone through the wall and came to a stop inside. But Judy Rothschadl, a documentary producer who was allowed inside immediately after the disaster, said, “There weren’t seats or luggage or things you would find in a plane” and ABC’s reporter John McWethy, said, “I got in very close, got a look early on at the bad stuff. I could not, however, see any plane wreckage.”

(9) Maybe Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld got it right when he later misspoke himself and accidentally blurted out that the Pentagon was struck by a missile. You think?

(10) Another odd coincidence: the part of the Pentagon that was hit was called Wedge One. As Griffin writes in his book, “Debunking 911 Debunking,” (Olive Branch Press), “Wedge 1 was the only part of the Pentagon that was being renovated—with steel reinforced concrete, blast-resistant windows, fire-resistant Kevlar cloth, and a new sprinkler system—to make it less vulnerable to terrorist attacks…the strike on (that section of) the Pentagon, therefore, caused far less damage than would have an attack on any of the other four wedges.” For this attack to be an inside job, you have to believe something terrible: that the Pentagon was complicit in the murder of 125 of its own employees…it’s own people. If David Ray Griffin and others in the 9/11 Truth Movement are right, the people behind 9/11 are some of the most ruthless, cold-blooded killers who ever lived.

(11) Then there’s the riddle of Flight 93, which left Newark Airport on the morning of 9/11 and crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pa., an hour and a half later. Just like the Pentagon’s lawn, it also doesn’t look like a crash site, either. As Jon Meyer, a local television reporter, said, “You just can’t believe a whole plane went into this crater…There were no suitcases, no recognizable plane parts, no body parts.” And Scott Spangler, a photographer for a nearby newspaper said when he arrived on the scene, “I didn’t think I was in the right place…I was looking for anything that said tail, wing, plane, metal. There was nothing.” And Paul Bomboy, a paramedic, thought upon arriving at the site, “It is just plain weird. Where is the plane? …There weren’t normal things going on that you would have expected. When a plane crashes, there is a plane and there are patients.”

(12) Volumes have been written about what would cause the Twin Towers to collapse, considering how difficult it is to bring down steel structures without using demolition charges. I won’t enumerate them. However, they appear credible particularly if you’ve looked at pictures of Hiroshima after the atomic bomb attack and note the steel girders still sticking up. No, too many people inside the Twin Towers that day running for their lives to escape reported they heard demolitions going off all around them. Same for some of the heroic firemen, police, and other first responders.

So sell me the George Washington Bridge. At least it was named for a man reputed never to have told a lie. But not the official 9/11 report, which gives off the same aroma as President Bush’s reasons for invading Iraq.

    Ha, ha. I swear, I am getting to really excel at reading the laces on these jewish fast-balls that guys like Ross and Duff keeping winging by the plate. Notice the famous ‘accusatory inversion’ tactic at use here in this 9-11 article. It’s all Bush’s fault. Mean old George Wmd Bush, who is so stupid and brain damaged from all that coke he snorted while skipping out on his Texas Air National Guard drill weekends that I doubt he could pour piss out of one of his phony cowboy boots even if Karl Rove and Dick Cheney teamed up and wrote the directions on the heel of the boot. Oh, and another tell-tale sign of a disinfo piece is the predictably boring reference to Adolf Hitler and the phony tale about the Reichstag fire being set by Hitler and not by one or more Communist jews, as was clearly documented in a great article which appeared in the Barnes Review Magazine earlier this year.

    No mention of dancing Israelis. No mention of hundreds of Mossad agents being rounded up and arrested and who were found to be operating inside the continental USA prior to 9-11, who according to Carl Cameron on Faux News had ‘connections to 9-11 that were classified’. No mention of any of the facts and details as outlined in the brilliant documentary by Mike Delaney called ‘911 Missing Links’.

    Mr. Ross is correct about one thing, though. George Wmd Bush is one evil, mentally insane, clearly psychopathic monster alright. But, then – that’s why the jewish power structure installed that worm into the White House in the first place, now isn’t it? Heck, he was exactly who they needed to have in the job because they knew 9-11 was on the Mossad calendar of up-coming false flag attacks.

    Nice try, Sherwood. But, no banana, pal.

    Second try to post-The WHO of 9/11 was the CIA/Mossad-Research this for a change

  3. Sherwood Ross  October 11, 2011 at 9:35 am

    Sharkey, thanks for your comments. It’s really hard to “know” something for a certainty here, even about George Bush, a man capable of anything. An investigation would have sworn testimony, legal proceedings, etc., which is what the doubting public needs. Have a good day. Sherwood

  4. sharkey  October 11, 2011 at 9:30 am

    70,000 signatures…WOW that’s a lot! What a just and fair Democracy we live. On a different note watch out for another false flag event, they want to cut the Military’s budget by $350 Billion over the next 10 years. We all know what happens when the Military Industrial Complex is threatened with less money or services no longer needed.

    Mr. Ross, I know Bush did this because he loves Israel

  5. Brian  October 11, 2011 at 8:25 am

    Do the Google search I mention about and look at his stunning photograph of the thousands of shards of the airplane with the firefighters in the background. He also shows other photographs. He statement is very clear he didn’t see a plane crash anywhere near the Pentagon. His follow up comment is very rational, he only saw a plane crash at the Pentagon not near the Pentagon. Look at his photographs it shows he is telling the truth. Those photographs are not photoshopped.

    Hasn’t Obama got everybody’s butt covered now?

    I predict that if any attempt in any state starts to look promising, we’ll see martial law imposed to stop it.

    The DVD In Plane Site that is mentioned above was passed around my neighborhood shortly after 9/11 and I highly recommend it. It’s amazing that more people haven’t seen it.

  9. Walter E. Haas  October 10, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    Con Job???

    9/11 In Plane Site A Power Hour production-William Lewis on DVD has statement of Silverstine in
    In interview stating he pulled building 7 in video.He owned Twin Towers.

    Oklahoma City Fed building had unexploded bombs in it after explosion.News Media did not cover these

    It is indicated military type planes hit Twin Towers using remote control.

    Also explosives set in building prior to attack.Bomb connected to planes detonated by cockpit contact with building.

    Military explosive melted steel.Evidence destroyed.Cameras not working.

    Missile or remote control plane hit Pentagon.A shadow was seen by witness in which they indicated a
    small jet plane hit Pentagon.

    Witnesses stated not commercial airlines struck buildings.

    Silverstine stated they pulled building 7.Demolition cannot be set to explode building in short period of time.

    Fireman and other witnesses were told not to talk about what they had seen.Some agreed to interview
    about Twin Towers,and cancel interview.

    Schedule of planes and departures discrepancies.News Media unreliable in stating facts regarding events.

    National defense not working due to training exercise and change of security policy.

    Please notify all investigating 9/11 to see
    9/11 In Plane Site-A Power Hour Power Production on DVD.
    William Lewis- Producer.

    How is it possible that building 7 was pulled and there are questions about it.When stated by owner of
    Twin Towers in interview at time it happened.Why were unexploded bombs not mentioned in FED
    Building Oklahoma City???

    Please notify all involved of these facts as it is a waste of time to speculate when facts are available.

    Is it not amazing that this information is known and yet is not known.The power of Communication when
    manipulated can accomplish these ends,and it is prevalent as facts prove.

    Thank you, I really appreciate VT’s coverage of this story and also of the Michael Connell crash in Ohio.

  11. ronisrael  October 10, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    CNN and Jamie can try to spin this all they want and bury themselves deeper.

    Not only is it very clear what he stated live on TV – it is also corroborated.

    Why limit the initiative to the Massachusetts ballot?

    Bill: The “aircraft” that they allege was flown by Hani Hanour was AA-77, a 757, not a 767. See my link for Rumsfeld, below Einstein’s mug, here:

  15. Brian  October 10, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    I don’t know what’s happening but I can’t post anything at VT today but very short comments. I don’t know if I’m being intentionally blocked or it’s just a technical error.

    Anyway, If you want to know what McIntyre really thinks about the Pentagon attack on 911 and how he was outrageously misquoted and look at his stunning photograph of the thousands of shards of the airplane Google this:

    The names of the “hijackers” came fm a CIA sub-contractor data-base…( hence the name Al-quaeda)..of course there were no hijackers, no cell phoney cell phone calls fm 30k feet..No wreckage of a 767 at the Pentagon..Everyone fm Jamie McIntyre/Mark Harris, first on the scene fm CNN to Army Spec April Gallop ( who crawled through the hole created by the missile ) to Gen Stubblebein sd ” no 767 flew into the Pentagon” and “no wreckage of a 767 at the Pentagon..” That plus the classic controlled demo of Bldg 7 ( the one NOT hit by an airplane ) and the dancing Israelis/2 Israelis w/van packed w/explosives about to go over the GWB/all working for the Urban Moving Systems Mossad front moving co. where everyone had demo experience/and the unprecedented 36 hr power-down in the complex the wkend before the false flag…And Zelikow starting with the conclusion and making everything fit the Jerome Hauer/Ehud Barak version was pretty cute….Nasty saboutage and big-time infiltration of our country by the worst element…That’s what 9-11 is made of…Electronic hijackings, skyscrapers turning to sandcastles….all for pipelines/poppy fields/killing arabs for Israel and war up the massacre of Persians/Syrians/Pakistanis…hang together or hang separately all you targets out there..
